Dear board game designers,

Introducing the Boston Festival of Indie Games Design Showcase!
New in 2013, we welcome submissions of board, card, and tabletop games to our competitive section of the showcase. The eligible submissions have to fulfill the following requirements:

  • All types of games can be submitted, except solitaires, brain-teasers and expansions of existing games.
  • The game has been released after October 2012 or is a prototype still in production.
  • The game should be independently produced and published.
  • Games should be produced in the New England and neighboring areas, including New York, Quebec and most states in the East Coast.
  • It is recommended to send games whose playing time does not exceed 45 to 60 minutes, because these are best for the showcase.
  • Game content and other materials are owned solely by the developer/designers or legal permission obtained to use any other copyrighted material.

You should be ready to come to Cambridge, MA, to demonstrate your game at the festival.

Important dates:

  1. Submission of game rules until June 20th
  2. Notification to designers to send their prototypes until June 22nd
