Hello I was wondering if the submission email address is correct? On here it shows submission email as go@koreaboardgames.com but on your Korean page, it shows game@koreaboardgames.com. I just wanted to make sure I have the correct one. Thank You

Will a game that was entered into one of the BGG 24-Hour Contest be inlegible? Those are not offical contest, more like a challenge?

The games just can't have been submitted to another contest at the same time they're submitted to this one. So if you submit a game for the June 24 hour contest you can't also submit it to this one since they'd be active in two contests at the same time. But an older 24 hour contest is fine. (At least that's what's been stated in the past for this one.)

For reference, the rules state (emphasis is mine):
No games that have been entered into other contests or submitted to a publisher during the time of this contest

It is sadly looking like time is not on my side on this one... Still grinding, but day job is killing me. A few more days and the graphic designer part would be done.

Are you sending out confirmation emails this year? I submitted on the 28th (CST) but haven't received anything yet.

Did they send them out in previous years? I sent my submission in weeks ago and I still don't know if they received it.

I think so? At least, https://boardgamegeek.com/article/16415904#16415904 suggests they did.

I also sent in a submission (three actually) and didn't receive a confirmation. I did last year though, the day after I submitted my game.
