Contest requirements

To qualify, your game must comply with all of the following rules:

Your game must use social deduction as a mechanic.
Your game must be explained in less than 10 minutes.
Your game must play in less than 90 minutes.
The total cost of your game must be less than $59.99.
A rules document must be downloadable from your game's shop page. Basic out of the box rules will suffice, so long as it's clear how the game is played.
The game must be publish ready (as it relates to our shop, not as it relates to being finished). This means it has a logo, backdrop, shop ad, action shots, description, and cool factors. It must also have all images proofed, and have packaging.

All artwork must be your own, commissioned by you, licensed to you, or in the public domain.
All entries must be submitted through TGC's game editor (by clicking on the "Contests" button) no later than Noon UTC (6am US Central) on August 12, 2019.
