From the design guidelines:
Last Chance Game Chef
Theme: Last Chance — Design your game as if it might only be played once. After all, the world is going to end.
Ingredients: There are two sets of four ingredients this year. Use 4 ingredients, split across the two sets any way you like (including all from one set):
- Coyote, Doctor, Lantern, Mimic.
- four random game design threads from The Forge (a unique set generated independently for each chef or team of collaborating chefs).
Maximum Length: 3,000 words, plus supplemental play materials.
Discussions: Talk about Game Chef wherever you want, as much or as little as you like, but there is a dedicated discussion forum on the Forge.
Submission: Submit your game by midnight (your time zone) April 15th.
Peer Review: Participants will be randomly assigned 4 games to read, and will recommend 1 game to go on to the second round.
Winners: The games with the most recommendations (3 or 4) will be closely reviewed by Game Chef founder Mike Holmes and the current Master Chef, to determine the overall winner.
