More information

WODC(World Original Design Contest of Board Game)is proudly initiated and held by Yoka Games, following the success of the first season, the second season will continue to encourage original design by accepting submissions from all around the world.

In the second season, with the exception of Trading Card Games (TCG) and Living Card Games (LCG), we have decided to permit all possible original designs and ideas, by not setting theme requirements, as long as they have never been commercialized, published, or participated in any other board game design contests. The second season of WODC will still progress through the qualification and preliminary rounds of selection before arriving at the finals.

The competition aims to encourage original game design from game designers and promote the growth of the board games industry. We welcome all designers who have ideas, creativity and enthusiasm to join in and compete for the glory and rewards that may follow!
