Hey BGDF!

One of the members of this forum got in touch and suggested that this game design contest might be of interest:

https://medium.com/@timhwang/the-power-broker-a-game-design-competition-...

We're asking tabletop and video game designers to try to adapt Robert Caro's monumental biography "The Power Broker" into game form. Registration closes on Friday (4/29), with cash prizes and a trophy available.

Let me know if you have any questions!

Deadline for the game isn't 29 April

I've never read the book, but it has been moved to the top of my list. I've always been interested in a satisfying tabletop analog to SimCity 2000.

Anyway, I wanted to say that the deadline for game submission itself isn't this Friday, but rather 29 July (according to the OP's link). So, you have about 3 months to work on this. I was initially turned off by what initially appeared to be a very quick deadline.

Registration is by Friday 29 April

No I think it was clear that IF you want to participate in this contest, you have until Friday 29 April to submit your candidature.

After that you have 3 months to develop a design and have it ready to be judged.

Yep!

That's correct - we're just getting all the design teams logged by this Friday, but you'll have three months to actually put the game together.
