Don't know if this has evaded notice in this august forum, so at the risk of duplication, I call your attention to the Thousand Year Game Design Challenge.

If you are capable of designing a game that will become a classic and last a thousand years, you will be entitled to win... $1000! And you'll get the prize next year, not in the next millennium.

FWIW: I have no affiliation with this contest whatsoever.

It's been covered by Daniel Solis himself here: The Thousand Year Game Design Challenge. But it was the first day of the year, and we were all drunk with geekgold then...

Also, at least one of the games is already in the database: Pandora's Box.

Re: The Thousand Year Game Design Contest...
I was working on something for this that was a combination of chess, tafl, and charrom, but couldn't finish in time due to not enough playtesters and too many other things in life getting in the way of development.
