The Game Crafter - Board Game Design Contest - Proto ATL 2020

Here are the finalists for the Proto ATL 2020 Contest:

- Leviathan Rumble
- The Island of Treacherous Treasure
- Tack

Commentary from the judges:

"We were impressed by the many clever and beautiful entries into this contest. What an awesome experience this was!
Each game was examined by two judges from the Proto ATL team. We all have wildly different tastes in games, which definitely shines through in a lot of the scores, with one judge scoring one one end, and the other scoring completely opposite. You'll see the finalists are where the judges both agreed on the appeal of the game.

We spent a short time looking at the games that didn't make the cut for semi finals, and we found two that we thought deserved a closer look (marked *). One of them turned out to be a favorite of ours and we pulled it into the finals, and we hear the other one has actually been signed to a publication deal!

The Game Crafter community definitely impressed us with numerous games that we would love to play. It was a very short window to design your games, and you all really stepped up and delivered some exciting ideas.
Congrats to the finalists!"

More contests?

There have been 4 or 5 game design contests a year for the last few. I was curious if you had another one in the works for this year, or will we only have one for 2020?

Thanks!

Great question!

Hi Juzek,

Covid has certainly played a factor in less contests this year (and delays in judging) but we have 2 new contest ideas brewing and they will be announced in the future. I can't give you an exact ETA but we know it's been awhile and people are ready for a new contest. We will definitely make the announcement here as well as our other social media channels. Thanks for your interest in our contests! :)
