Game Chef Workshop


by Loren Norman on Thursday, May 08, 2014


This weekend marks the beginning of Game Chef: an annual analog game design competition. Game Chef has been held annually for more than a decade, and it sees dozens of original games drafted every year. With its focus on multiple languages, access for the deaf and blind, peer judging, and strictly simplistic submission guidelines, I believe it is one of the most inclusive events out there.

So what is Game Chef?

I'm glad you asked!

  • it's a week-long competition starting sometime Friday night
  • contenders receive a theme and 4 ingredients that aren't announced until the competition starts (kind of like Iron Chef)
  • game submissions can only be a single file, submitted as a link (plain text, Youtube, etc)
  • the participants are also the judges, how cool is that?

So what?

I'm glad you asked!

We're dedicating the Oil & Rope Game Design Workshop these next two Saturdays to creating submissions for Game Chef. This Saturday (May 10th) will be ideation and brainstorming activities (including our wildly popular and productive "crazy 8s" group activity), as well as going over the rules of the contest and reviewing past submissions for inspiration.

"Feel free to push the boundaries of what counts as a roleplaying game, an analog game, or a game." - Game Chef site

Next Saturday (May 18th) will be for playtesting and feedback with an eye towards finishing touches and "publishing" (remember: it's really just a draft!) Our game design and storytelling experts will be on hand to refine your game recipe in just the right ways for maximum impact during judging. We'll also be able to assist with the technical side of things: hosting the files or recording videos, should you need it.

So if you're in Atlanta and you want to make games, come on out! Game Chef is a great opportunity to get in over your head and push your boundaries.
