Hasbro Gaming Lab is inviting creators, innovators and independent artists to submit their best board game ideas to its fall 2016 Next Great Family Game contest.
The contest seeks the next face-to-face game that will “make the most epic family game night.” Think of the classics you played as a kid: Candy Land, Battleship, Sorry!
To submit an idea, your game should:
- Have complete rules (not just a premise)
- Be playable
- Draw players into the world of the game with a “conceptual narrative” and a “visual style.”
- Be your intellectual property or something you have permission to use
The grand prize winner will will receive $25,000 and a trip to Hasbro’s world headquarters in Pawtucket, Rhode Island, to meet with relevant business leaders for potential game development. You must be available between March 1, 2017 and June 30, 2017 for travel.
The contest is open to anyone in the U.S. and Canada, except citizens of Quebec. Submit your idea to Hasbro by Oct. 23 to enter.
