Description Edit | History

A participant microbadge is available mb

From the Game Chef page:

Game Chef is an annual design competition for "analog" (non-electronic) games, challenging participants to write a playable draft of an original game in just over one week, based on a theme and a set of "ingredients."

As our 2006 nomination for the Diana Jones Award said: Each year the competition has spawned a number of powerful, widely diverse RPGs and semi-RPGs and is now one of the best break-in points for new game designers and small press publishers. One of its strongest features is its development of a community of review and interest in one anothers’ projects.

Game Chef has been a proud tradition for more than ten years now, dating back to primordial contests on the Gaming Outpost before being revived in 2002 by Mike Holmes on the Forge.
