I need your support!
« on: September 09, 2015, 01:21:50 PM »
Hi all,

I need your help! I have created two card games and submitted them for a contest at thegamecrafter.com. The theme of the contest was to develop games with a "take that!" mechanic, and I have (not very subtly) titled my games "Screw Yew!" and "Strew Ewes" (if you're not sure about that second one, yell it out loud at your boss, but not if you want to keep your job).

The problem is that there are 90 entries for the contest, and voting will determine the 20 semifinalists that will go in front of the judges. If you have a minute, I would greatly appreciate you going to the following website and voting for one or both of my games:

https://www.thegamecrafter.com/contests/gamehole-board-game-challenge-2015

Voting ends at 6:00 AM Central (US) time on September 15. I believe you have to create an account with the website to vote, so I understand if you don't want to do this. However, registration is free, and there are certainly a number of interesting games for sale to check out there.

Thanks in advance for your votes!

Yes the login registration is very straightforward (and doesn't ask any obscure skill testing Carcassonne related questions).

Who knew that sites like this existed that would make up your games and print them on heavy duty cardboard - very nice.

For some reason the hexagonal tiles seem to add that extra level of sophistication to any game.

I voted for the sheep game as it seemed to be more straightforward and easier to grasp

Both sounded like great fun, but with an element of evil, which is always good.

I voted for both.

Good luck obervet! :) :(y)

Yes, a huge thank you to everyone who voted! Both games were announced as semi-finalists, so now it's in the hands of the judges.
