Who among you is mighty enough to create an entire roleplaying game in two weeks?
Game Chef is an annual RPG design competition organized by the too-cool-for-school Andy Kitkowski, who also runs the Story Games RPG forum and founded the Indie RPG Awards (now run by John Kim). Over the years, Game Chef has had its rules tweaked a little, but the core idea has remained the same — there are two lists of four “ingredients” — words that must be incorporated into your game. Choose one list and, from that list, choose three of the four words as your ingredients.
When inspiration strikes, start writing.
Over the years, several Game Chef entries have been developed into critically acclaimed commercial (small press) products, and more are still in the works. Perhaps your entry will join Polaris, The Mountain Witch, The Shab al-Hiri Roach, Ganakagok and Carry on the shelves.
P.S. I haven’t decided if I’m signing up yet, but I have an idea or two struggling for light in my brain.
