Entries

You can send them using the message system on BGDF here, or you can send them directly to me at dave @ planktongames.com. I'll send a confirmation for everything I receive, so if I haven't replied, I haven't gotten it.

Good luck,
Dave

From the "Details on entering the Game Design Showdown":

"Formatting and layout examples can be seen in text file attached at the bottom of this page."

...which file would that be? :-)

Here

I think the forum post you're referring to is here, right?

http://www.bgdf.com/node/27

When I view that, I see an attachment link at the bottom which goes to here:

http://www.bgdf.com/sites/default/files/BGDF_GDS_Template.txt

That's the file to which it's referring. Let me know if you can't access it.

Good luck,
Dave

I made a "playable" game for the showdown, not just ideas. It's never been tested and I'm sure there will be bugs. But in case anyone actually wanted to print it out and play it here is the PDF.

November 2011 GDS - Voting is now open!

VOTING IS NOW OPEN!

We have nine entries listed in the main thread. Voting will run until November 17th. Please send your votes to me (on the forum here as dobnarr, or by e-mail at dave@planktongames.com.

IMPORTANT: Showdown Voting Change:

For this month only, I'm trying out a new voting mechanism for the Showdown. Rules are as follows:

Instead of allocating six votes, each voter instead awards three medals to the three submissions he/she considers the best entries, allocating them as 1st place Gold, 2nd Silver, and 3rd Bronze. When awarding medals, voters should take into account showdown rules and the theme and mechanic limitations in addition to game design.

For purposes of winning the showdown, Gold counts as 6 points, Silver 3 points, Bronze 1 point. Highest total points from all medals received wins the showdown.

Contestants are strongly encouraged to vote. Contestants cannot award medals to their own submitted games. Contestants who enter a game in the showdown but don't vote for other games are awarded an Arsenic medal worth negative ten points to balance out the ten points they failed to grant to competitors.

So, pick your top three games, and award your gold, silver, and bronze medals. You don't have to have entered the showdown to read the entries and award medals. If you did enter, make sure to award your medals before the 17th to avoid receiving the dreaded arsenic medal.

One more day to vote on November Design Showdown!

There is one more day to vote on the November Game Design Showdown, Oceans Elevens!

Click here to see the nine entries!

Remember, this month, the voting is slightly changed; you award three medals for your top three choices - gold, silver, and bronze.

A couple of designer entrants have not yet voted and are at risk of earning an arsenic medal for their entries!
