Somebody copied my game idea... years before I designed it!

If you’ve dabbled in any game design before this has probably happened to you. You’re online and you discover a game with a VERY similar concept as yours. Sometimes almost eerily close. It’s already published and on BGG, silently giggling and mocking you. What do you do?

Any good hobby uses comedy to help build a great community. Chris Bryan created Board With Life to do just that. We talked to him about his time designing board games and how the hilarious mini series got its start.

Next week, designers all over the world will compete to create new game ideas in one week. The theme and necessary ingredients aren't known until the contest starts, the games must be analog and simple in nature, and you'll be judged by your peers.

Will you rise to the challenge? If you're in the Atlanta area, come to the Oil & Rope Game Design Workshop and work on your Game Chef submission with us!
