The Game Design Contest Resource (GDCR) is an online tool designed to help with the administration and participation in contests.

The first time you use the GDCR, you will need to create a new account. The GDCR uses the same account name as your BGG account. You cannot create an account with a different name than you use on BGG.

The first time you come to the site, click on New User


You will then be taken to an Authorization page. Enter your BGG account.


The system will verify that it is a valid account and then send you a geekmail on BGG with an authcode.

You should receive a geekmail from a system account with your authcode and a link to log in.


The geekmail will come from

I don't closely monitor that mailbox so if you have questions, send them to me rather than to that account.

Once your account is verified, you can create a password for the GDCR.

Note: Your password is encrypted and inaccessible to me, but I nonetheless recommend using a different password than you use for BGG - just to be extra safe.

You can now sign in and use the site!

Howdy!

I tried to create a new account today, but found a serious issue: the password requirements. Passwords that are three of four short words (separated by spaces) are far stronger than an eight-character passwords, even with painful requirements of upper/lower-case, numbers, and strange symbols.

Can you remove the upper/lower and non-alpha requirements, and allow spaces and length up to 32?

Eight characters is the minimum length but not a maximum limit. You can do a 32 length password right now.
Adding special characters (including spaces) is on my to do list.

I've got a test page of special characters and spaces working. I had to learn a few new Regex things.

I will deploy it to the GDCR with the password reset process. Should be a day or two.

The new password reset process is currently testing on the GDCR Test site. It rewrites the logic to allow special characters. See this thread for details.
