Contest requirements

To enter, a contestant must fill out the linked survey by 11:59 PM CST, February 28, 2019: Entrants should adhere to the following guidelines:
Full published copy should fit in a box like the one Resistance comes in (6 x 8 x 2 inches, but why don’t you just go buy a copy of Resistance just to make sure your game fits, because after all the publisher is the sponsor of this thing).
Component count limited to 120 pieces, mostly cardboard. No miniatures.
Play time of 45 minutes or less
No 2-player only games (but 2-4 or 2-6 or whatever is fine).
IBC is looking particularly for games that have a strong social component. Dry euros are discouraged, as are worker placement games, trick taking games, real-time games, or party games like Cards Against Humanity or Pictionary.
Some examples of games that fit the mold (from the IBC catalog, of course) are Coup, Kodama, Aeon’s End, and Resistance.
