Hello my friends,
Until 13 January 2012 designers can send their submissions to the Ludopolis Game Design Contest to firstname.lastname@example.org. Participation has no fee and the winner will be edited trough Runadrake! It's a new contest that has some important goals to achieve:
- To encourage board games design in Portugal and within the world.
- To encourage and raise awareness about board games among the general public.
- To share the talent, the creativity and the designers creations with the general public.
- To help participants prepare to compete for international relevant contests.
- To set the scene for Portugal on the biggest international competitions for board game design.
You can check the Regulation in www.ludopolis.pt (it's a game Festival in Lisbon), or just click here:
I wish you the best ideas!
Good Luck to the Rest of You.
There is a little change: designers with only self-published games are allowed do participate too (it's not in the rules yet but it will be soon!).
So, you should read in the rules:
"The contest is open to any board game designer with more than 18 years old without authored or co-authored games published (except in self-edition)." =)
That still leaves me out but i understand. They want to give newer designer a chance without the big dogs taking all the glory.
I'm not a big dog but i am published.
Same here. Looked interesting before I read that far. But I understand the motives and that it would be difficult to write the rules in a way that excludes only the real "big dogs".
Not that I have time for another competition anyway, so it's also good to not be allowed to enter.
Which ones are you currently pursuing?
I think this is what you meant. No?
Yes, it is! Sorry for my unperfect english! ;)
Hou have here the final version of the Regulation:
The full Ludopolis site is now translated in 4 languages (English, French, Spanish and Portuguese). You can find the regulation of the game design contest inside =)
Thank you for the information, Arkiris! Bookmarked....
Don't forget you can send your rules for Ludopolis contest until 13 January!
There is still time to write them :p
Happy New Year!!
Hello my friends!
Thank you for all the people who have participated in this contest! We are now reading the rules of the 78 games that were accepted to this first contest edition =)
We were not expecting such a big participation: published designers could not be in, each designer could only send a max. of 3 games, and the contest had no past - but it will have future for sure! ;)
The organization will do its best to give the winning prize to the best of all those games!
Thank you again from Lisbon ;)
The results of the second phase were sent minutes ago. 6 games moved on to the Final! We wish the best of luck to all the games that participated on the Ludopolis contest.
Thank you all!
And the winner is: "Why First?"
