The Worker Placement Challenge is the next board game design contest at The Game Crafter and it will be judged by Letiman Games (letimangames.com). We want you to design a game that uses worker placement as the driving mechanic. You can consider using 1 worker per player like in Harbour, many workers like in Lords of Waterdeep, or even consider using dice as workers like in Kingsburg. It is completely up to you how you create your workers, how many you have, and what the workers are doing for you.
