Choose Your Own Path Contest

Via BoardGameGeek: The Game Crafter is running a choose your own “path” game contest. The main requirement is writing a CYOA in book format (even though their example games are all in card format) that plays in less than an hour. Additional board-gamification is encouraged, though somewhat limited by the $50 price ceiling. (Prices at The Game Crafter are fixed by the components used.)

While a gamebook contest seems more appropriate to DriveThru RPG than The Game Crafter, the prizes are reasonably tempting. One downside is that the game must be fully ready to sell in their store, which means creating a lot of extra assets, most onerously a semi-mandatory video. Entries are due circa August 22nd.
