We want you to design a completely unique
trick taking game. Trick taking is an ancient style of card game. We want you to turn this age-old mechanic and turn it on its head.
Andrew Smith, winner of the 2015 Gamehole Board Game Challenge, will be personally judging all entries.
To qualify, your game must comply with all of the following rules:
Your game must be a trick taking card game with a twist.
You are welcome to use any printables or game pieces available in our shop to create your game.
The cost of your game cannot exceed $19.99.
A rules document must be downloadable from your game's shop page and also included in the game itself. Can be in booklet or document form.
The game must be publish ready, meaning it has a logo, backdrop, shop ad, action shots, description, and cool factors. It must also have all images proofed, and have packaging.
This must be a new game created for this contest. It cannot have existed on TGC prior to the start of the contest.
All artwork must be your own, commissioned by you, licensed to you, or in the public domain.
All entries must be submitted through TGC's game editor (by clicking on the "Contests" button) no later than Noon UTC (6am US Central time) on March 6, 2017.
