It will start shortly after the 2014 2 Player Contest wraps up. I will post more closer to the end of that contest.

I'll be posting the 2014 Contest thread soon. I'm trying to decide when to set the entry deadline and the voting deadline. I don't want to be too soon so that people have lots of time to play the games, but I also don't want to hog a ton of time in case other people want to have contests.

Please vote for the timeline you like best.

I vote for a longer submission period and a shorter voting period. The point of these contests is to encourage designers to create and complete cool new games, so more focus should be on the creation and fine-tuning stage. The playing and voting stage is fun and can provide useful feedback for the designers, but isn't as important as getting the games done and out for public consumption. :two cents:

I agree with you that the focus of the contest is on the design. However, I like a slightly longer voting period (approx 6 weeks) just because it is very hard to play all of the entries in a month or less. It's hard to play them all in 6 weeks too but it's slightly more doable.

What other PNP Contests are planned for this year?

Chris, since I withdrew Stranded No More from last year's contest, could I submit it for this year's? There's no guarantee I'd finish it in time but if I know now, I'll be more inclined to do so. I do have a rough prototype printed out but haven't played it yet. So all I really need is to figure out how to create/find someone to do the graphics as long as the mechanics/game play works.

Yes. Withdrawn entries from previous contests are allowed in the current contest. As long as the game wasn't put online before 2014, it is eligible to be entered into this year's contest.

I was just reading last year's rules to see if my situation was mentioned previously. The game doesn't have an entry in the database nor is it for sale anywhere since it isn't done. I'll be moving Stranded No More ahead of some other things I am working on to get this done in time, barring any major setbacks.

I favour the longer deadline. I won't be entering this year as I've been busy all year with non-boardgaming (not bad) stuff but I will certainly follow the development threads and provide feedback where I can.

I'm still enjoying some of the 2013 PnP games and about to build a couple more.

Getting excited as the 2014 start date approaches, even more so once it has been confirmed.

I'm working out the final version of the rules for the 2014 Contest. Mostly the same as the 2013 version but as a few minor differences. Expect the thread sometime this week.

I can't wait to see your games!

I'm getting the 2014 post ready tonight. I'll have it up soon.

The contest entry deadline is August 2nd. At that point all games will have one week to correct typos or make last minute fixes. Voting deadline will be Sept 13th.

There isn't really a start date for the contest. The games cannot be released online previous to Jan 1, 2014. Anything released in 2014 will be eligible for entry.

I'll post a link here as soon as the entry thread is online.

Woohoo!

(Stupid mistakes I don't notice 'til five minutes after the deadline are my speciality. ;-)
