Contest requirements

Games must be small in size. The game should fit the Novel Games line. In particular, designs should be limited to components that can fit into the box. The inside dimensions of the box are 4″x6.5″x1″. This is enough room for a deck of cards, dozens of small tokens, some dice, and a rule sheet. There is also magnetic lid the folds over to close the game that can also be used like a board as in Holmes & Moriarty (see picture).
Games must be approachable. Game rules are limited to the front and back side of a standard sheet of paper (8.5″x11″). The game should be easy to teach and learn.
Game themes must be family friendly. Games do not have to be aimed at children as the audience. Stated another way, if it were a movie, it would be rated PG.
