2006 Game Design Competition: Dice Games

By February 22, 2006

Follow me on:

The 2006 Game Design Competition, which this site is again co-sponsoring with GameTable Online, has the theme of Dice Games. The complete rules can be found at GTO's web site, but here are the basics:

  • Games must be designed for play on an easy-to-replicate game board, using checkers, Go stones, Chess pieces, Poker chips, dice, a standard deck of cards, or other items likely to be found in the average gamer's collection.
  • Games must be designed for two players.
  • Games must include dice as a central element. Acceptable dice are limited to: 4-sided, 6-sided, 8-sided, 10-sided, 12-sided and 20-sided.
  • Prizes will be awarded to the top games, as chosen by a panel of judges. Among the prizes, the winning game will be put into the GTO development queue and the runner-up will receive a free six-month subscription to GameTable Online.
  • All designers who submit a valid entry will receive a free three-month subscription to GameTable Online.
  • The deadline for entries is March 31, 2006.

Good luck to everyone who enters. If you'd like to learn more about our game design competitions, be sure to check our list of winners from past competitions.
