Design Submission Guidelines

Our design submission process is accomplished in three stages. At the conclusion of each stage, we will determine whether or not to move on to the next stage. This leaves the possibility of giving feedback and ways to improve if we plan to encourage the designer to resubmit at a later date.

All submissions containing the items from Stage 1 should be sent to

 Stage 1: Elevator Pitch

  • Sell sheets, if available. If not, the same basic information.
    • This should include the basic description of game, possible look and feel, mechanics, theme, etc.
  • Previous designs from this designer, if any.
  • What stage is the game in?
    • Is the game currently a concept only, or is it being playtested? If it is in playtesting, how much and what type has been done?

Stage 2: Theoretical Evaluation

  • Full rules
  • Component files, if available.
    • Digital only. No physical prototypes.
  • Playtesting feedback, if available.
    • Written playtesting reports, feedback forms, feedback.
  • Any gameplay video(s), if available.

 Stage 3: Prototype Evaluation

  • Physical prototype
    • When we reach this stage, we will give an address at that time.
