The tabletop crowdfunding site Game On Tabletop has held their do-it-yourself RPG creation challenge, Get Your Game On, at gaming conventions throughout the world. Now it’s coming to America for the first time at PAX Unplugged next week.
Here’s how to play: after entering, contestants are given a “development kit” — a box containing typical RPG items like dice, meeples, blank cards, pencils and more. Using some of these items, they have to come up with a quick-rule game that can be played through in less than 10 minutes. Before the end of the convention, they can demonstrate it for the Game On Tabletop judges, and possibly win prizes.
“We’ve been amazed at the response the Get Your Game On challenge has received at game conventions around the world and we can’t wait to bring it to PAX Unplugged,” says Laura Hoffman, business manager for Game On Tabletop.
PAX Unplugged takes place in Philadelphia from November 17th through the 19th. You can sign up for Get Your Game On by visiting the Game On Tabletop booth, #538 in the exhibition hall.
