for creating the badge!



I just realized, that the term "MARCH" does have multiple meanings in the English language. Not only is it the name of a month, deriving from the Roman god of war "Mars", but also it stands for a longer walk, or in "march of temperature" you use it to describe the development of temperature over a certain period of time.
There is an animal called "March Moth", "March" is a term used in Geology to classify border regions, for the military, a "Long-March" is a signal played on a drum...
Pretty interesting, if you ask me ...

So, this month's requirement will be:



March




Remember: The requirement is just a requirement - not necessarily a theme! It's up to you, how you involve it in your game!



Happy designing and kind regards,
Kai

p.s.:

In the behaviour rules (see link to basic rules thread above) I've written:
Quote:
Please create a second posting in that thread to present your creation.
Please do present your game along with a short description in a posting. The reason I ask you to do this is simple: Creating geeklist entries becomes easier for me because from time to time copy-n-pasting from PDFs produces unexpected results (such as copying only odd symbols into the clipboard ..)
Thanks a lot

And if you'd like to spread the word of this contest, feel free to tweet about it:

Only if it is an RPG about GMs playing RPGs...

Turning "March" ideas around in my head. Now I just need to commit myself to 24 hours when I can focus solely on the designing.

My 24h-designs have been a few hours late at night, thinking a bit about the game next day when commuting, then completing the game slightly less late the next night. More like 4h.

I've always found the use of march referring to a border or frontier region really cool for some reason...I wonder if there's an idea in there for something...

With Trigun being this lock consensus good read for so many people, I find it really bizarre that she's alive. There's a threshold where if she's still alive she should probably be murdalated.

It's been far too long since I had a go at one of these, so I'm really hoping I'll actually find the time this month. It has to be possible, right?

I love it when Kai comes up with a word that can be used in a few different ways.

I'm thinking at the moment about a March hare boxing game and a few ideas are starting to bounce around (as are the hares).

Apart from that, my top alternative is probably the Grand Old Duke of York, marching his men up and down a hill.

We'll see what is on top after a few more days of musing.

I was browsing around for inspiration, and found that March 14 was Pi day.

Did you know that in Pi, there is an equal and random distribution of every digit?

I'm gonna make "The March of Pi". I have no idea what the game entails but hey, it's a start

Yes, I celebrate Pi day each year by baking random pies for my team at work. Mmm!

Well, darn it, I've gone and picked up a pencil. So I guess I'm starting now. A push-your-luck dice game in which you are drummer(s) auditioning for the one open slot in a Marching band. Need to score well enough to impress the judges.
