This last weekend was the Global Game Jam, where over 10,000 people at more than 300 sites around the world created digital or tabletop games. You can download and play them at http://globalgamejam.org/games/2013 .

I'm curious who out there on BGG participated in the event and made a game. If you made a game, tell us about it here!

At the Syracuse site that I directed, we had 2 tabletop and 2 digital games created.

I put forth an extra challenge to attendees - if they would make a transformative game (a game designed to address a bigger social/educational issue), then they would get to transform me at our awards ceremony. You can see what happened in this video:

Nice video!

I participated (for the second year) at the Minnesota IGDA Chapter's event. This year I made a card game with an iPhone app "accessory". The app essentially tells you what cards you can play, and also acts as a timer for the game. (My entry here: http://globalgamejam.org/2013/heart-burn)

There were no other physical games created at our location, but (also, like last year), sometime in the next week or two, I intend to review ALL the physical/board games created over the weekend, and write up a quick summary of the ones that I think look the most promising.

Did not know you were a clown. Is that real clown? with a nose and everything?

Sounds like a lot of fun. I was in boston last year during the Gayme Jam @ MIT but I wasn't able to stop by.
