New Contest?

Mike hit the nail on the head.

An "Image" is whatever appears on an 8.5X11 sheet. You do need to leave about a 1/4" margin, and bleeds won't work on our press unless we accomplish them by cutting down a printed 8.5X11 sheet.

So if your ten cards fit on but one such sheet, is still just one image (one plate).

Just a few questions:

1) Will you accept entries from other countries (ie Australia)?

2) Do the "T" stands come in different colours, and if so how many, and what colours are available?

3) Is the competition limited to 1 entry per person or can we "hedge our bets" :) and have several? (I have been sitting on a couple of designs for a while, and because of this comp, it started me thinking about getting them published)

"1) Will you accept entries from other countries (ie Australia)? "

We do, although your complimentary copies, and checks, wind up being sent via snail mail. We don't have a Paypal account for security reasons.

"2) Do the "T" stands come in different colours, and if so how many, and what colours are available?"

Just white I'm afraid... but what you put into the t-stands can be printed one-color on ANY color paper.

"3) Is the competition limited to 1 entry per person or can we "hedge our bets" and have several? (I have been sitting on a couple of designs for a while, and because of this comp, it started me thinking about getting them published)"

I'd just pick your best. As this is a contest, we are going to limit the number of entries to one per person. Otherwise, I'll spend the entire year on nothing but the contest! :-)

Dice

Sorry if I missed this above ...

Are we restricted to a single colour for the dice? For example, could the game specify 1 green die and 1 white die?

We only have one color in stock.. we could get more.

I'd say that its ok to specify dice colors, and that it would only "ding you" on your practicality score if you were tied (score-wise) with someone that did not specify dice color.

READ AS: Not much at all... but infinitesimally more than none.

well

I started thinking of ideas for a game using only the components listed, and came up with something that I really like. The problem is, it uses cards, which I read from earlier posts probly isn't a good thing for your publishing purposes.

Luckily, the contest hasn't started yet, so I'm gonna try to get this one done (ie: outta my head) and then back to the drawing board for the contest :)

See if you can substitute cards for a table with a random dice roll, and a score sheet. It can't always be done, but I've modified a few of my designs in this fashion.

As is usually the case with me and contests, I FINALLY thought of something I could do!

But there's been no traffic on this thread for a few months. Is the microgame contest still on?

I was also wondering about this, i believe it was originally suggested that it would start in July . I understand that a contest of this nature will be very time consuming for the judges. Even if it just an update saying "We have been busy and the start of the contest will have to be put off until further notice". Hey XXOOCC are you there?

What became of the microgame contest? It seemed to be ready for start, with the rules more or less settled and all, then nothing for over a year.

The founder of the contest XXOOCC apparently became too busy with other projects. Several attempts at contacting him turned up nothing.
