The 2013 edition of Gen Con, taking place August 15-18 in Indianapolis, will feature the Tabletop Design Deathmatch. To enter, game designers fill out a form describing their game (answering questions like, "What are the core mechanics of the game?"). All entries will be reviewed, and 16 finalists chosen.
The 16 finalists will each be given a chance to demo their game to a panel of experts for 15 minutes at Gen Con. The winner will receive $7,500 towards the first printing of the game with Ad Magic.
