There have been changes made to the challenge rules.

Rule 9. All entries will be available after the contest with the top three games being released in a box set at cost for a limited time of three months. This will be dependant on if said designers choose for them to be released via this method.

Rule 10. Entries do not have to be Publish Ready (final art ect.).

Also the following parts got a modification:

2 printed sheets

16 cards
8 4x4 game boards (this is actually 6 but we are allowing 8 for the challenge)
3 4x10 game boards
