I noticed that as well. There is no "Roll and Write" category or mechanic in the database.

Version 0531 of BIRDSONG is uploaded, thanks to the proofreading of the steely-eyed Barninator!

If this is not allowed so late in the game, please let me know and I'll retract the proof. (Version 0530 is still accessible.)

Since it's currently still before the deadline, and the changes are grammatical and typographical (do not affect game-play) I'm hoping it's allowable.

I'm calling my game The Awesomest Petting Zoo Contest Ready.

Still plenty of things I'd like to improve, but those will have to wait for after the contest.

Could the picture for my entry please be changed to this one:

The deadline for the presentation of the 1st Roll and Write game design contest has already closed, with a good participation in the number of games and quality.

In total a total of 55 games have been presented, of which 39 will participate in the final voting phase next Monday June 8, 2019 until June 15.

You have in the Contest Ready section all the games with their corresponding PDF where you will find the rules and game sheets.

I encourage you to continue testing the games so you can have a more objective opinion when voting.

I want to thank all the participants, testers, and all those who have shared their opinions in this contest.

As I already told you, go preparing your ideas, because once the summer is over, the 2nd Roll and Write game design competition will open in September, with news that I will announce at the time.

It's time to roll.

Thank you for running this.

One two of mine I couldn't figure out a suitable way to play solo, which turned out to be the toughest issue of designing the games.

The other game might be the best game I made.

Some news

- There are 40 games in the contest, i forgot put the game Ducks in the Pond.

- There is a small delay for the votes of some days, these will begin on June 17 to 23, so that people have more time to test the games, since there is a large volume of games presented.

Thanks

Sergi

Agreed. The game page says it is recommended to try on or two games, realistically everybody can try and comment on at least three games (the contest last for several months). It does encourage the designer and I think if benefits us to see how other people approach this contest! As one person stated it in the Design Contest Discussion thread:

lovemyfire wrote:

I know some entrants would say they have NO time to do this, if so, perhaps this isn't the right time for them to submit a game and they should wait until they have the time to fully participate in the contest.

Yes, it takes a lot of time to just design a game, create the files, make a WIP thread, response to feedback, etc, but all entrants have to do the same. And being required to playtest and provide feedback for three other games takes time too, but for contests that are community run and not hosted by a publisher, I think it just makes sense.

Hi Frank,

I can understand you.

For upcoming contests, I'm working so that everything works much better, and there's more feedback with the authors
