I was one of the judges at the time, and I seem to recall a lot more entries; many of them, sadly, rethemed versions of chess! These are the ones I could find.

Game designers and hopefuls, put on your thinking caps!
About Board Games, together with the Strategy Gaming Society and Abstract Games magazine, is sponsoring the First Annual 8x8 Game Design Competition. The goal is simple: design a great two-player game that can be played on an 8x8 playing surface using pieces most people are likely to have around the house.
Prizes will be awarded to the top two games, as chosen by a panel of judges spread around the world. First prize is a trophy, a one-year membership in the Strategy Gaming Society, and a one-year subscription to Abstract Games. The top two finishers will be submitted to a variety of game publishing companies for their consideration.
In addition, the top two games will be published on About Board Games, in The Strategist (the Strategy Gaming Society newsletter) and in Abstract Games. Additional games may also be published in the same outlets. About Board Games, The Strategist and Abstract Games retain non-exclusive rights to publish any entry in the contest.
(List Sorted by average rating so we can see what hindsight made of these games.)
