Mike Resnick and Lou Anders want a game

In Mike Resnick's upcoming new book he describes a game, without going into specifics. Now he and the publisher want someone to design it based on the description.

Full rules and criteria at the provided link. Winner earns credit in the book, some copies of the book, and half rights to the game.

Have a go.


By way of SF Signal.

Hmmm, the criteria is somewhat restrictive but does not provide much in the way of structure (20 generic pieces, no board, cards or computer). And for this you get *half* the rights to the game? How generous.

I'll strike a deal with Resnick and Anders -- I'll design the game if they write a book and give me half the rights to that.

I have to admit that I felt the same way. I was thinking of writing to them about this.

I suspect it is a lack of understanding about how game design works.
