Invent-and-Play: Opponents Wanted

These variant designers are looking for other designers to take part in an Invent-and-Play section. This involves six PBEM games...two of your own variant design, plus four other designs. Both a Play Champion and a Design Champion will be crowned from each five-player group.

To enter an Invent-and-Play section, check the box by each game you are willing to play. Then, at the bottom of the page, you need to provide:

  • Your name;
  • Your email address;
  • Names of one, two, or three of your own designs which you want to play, if not already listed.

You may update your preferences at any time by returning to this page. When a compatible set of five games/inventors has been found, a section will be started, and those games will be removed from the active list.
