Grey Gnome Games presents The Survival Challenge

You must design a game where the players are in a dire situation and must SURVIVE! Maybe they are in a post-apocalyptic setting having to find the bare necessities in order to stay alive another day. Perhaps, they are trapped in an underwater sea lab with radioactive sharks on the prowl. Or maybe the players are trapped on a distant moon with only a few days of oxygen left. Hey! I like these ideas! What about a party of adventurers in a dungeon that forgot to pack a lunch?

The idea is that the players are up against the game itself and must survive. Now the players could be working together, or it could be every person for themselves. In either case, the game must be the source of most of the challenges.

One last twist! Your entry must come housed in a Small Pro Box. This challenge will force you to design small and to trim the fat from your game.

Jason Glover of Grey Gnome Games will be personally judging all entries.

To qualify, your game must comply with all of the following rules:


You retain all rights to your game and are welcome to sell it in our shop before, during, and after the contest, regardless of the outcome of the contest.


The winner shall receive all of the following prizes:

2nd place will win:

3rd place will win:

* Consideration for publication is open for discussion. Commitment to publishing the winner automatically is not fair to the designer or the publisher. If there is a good turnout for this contest and an entry fits the bill, then I will certainly give the winner a hard look. Who knows, maybe more than one contract could be handed out.
