Design Contest Entries: Traditional Card Games for Two Players
Traditional Card Games family. I decided to use it to hold a little contest and have people design even more of the same type of game but with a focus on making the games playable with two. The deadline for posting new game designs (Saturday, Aug. 1st) has passed and there are now 29 official entries.
There will be two rounds of voting in the competition. The first round will begin on Saturday, Aug. 15th. That one will be a nomination ballot where people will select the games they feel should move on to the next voting round (on Saturday, Aug. 22nd). Only 5 games will move on to that round, which will run until Saturday, Aug. 29th. But, in the end, only 3 games will be awarded prizes:
1st Prize: 120.00
2nd Prize: 60.00
3rd Prize: 20.00
To help "get out the vote", I'll use this geeklist to give folks a quick introduction to each of the entries. My hope is to help entice people to check out the rules for some of the games - perhaps even play a few and (best of all) provide feedback to the designers. In the descriptions for each contest entry I'll include a link to that entry's rules but you can also find the rules for all of the contest entries in a single PDF, here.
Thanks to all of the contestants for their contributions. Cheers, and good luck!
Update (20100820): Went back and re-ordered geeklist items by the associated game's order of finish in the contest.
