If you want to see previous posts about this jam, go to the Previous Jams menu at the top of the site, or follow this link.

Again, you can have a look at the paper prototyping post to see what you could expect when creating a paper/cardboard prototype. And we also posted generally good advice on creating your card/board game prototype in another post.

The Facebook event (and e-mail) are places you can reach Jeff, Samanta or Torsten. We will otherwise definitely be at the jam according to the schedule.

It’s never too late to register for the jam. You will have to still use the registration form and then find one of the game jam coordinators to help check you in.

Anyways. The game jam teams are as follows:

1. team Winner! 2. Broken Games 3. Fria sinnet

Some helpful things to know

If anyone was wondering how to use anydice.com, here’s a quick way to see roll distribution. Let’s say you have 3 dice which have 6 sides, and 2 dice which have 20 sides. And you want to see what the roll distribution is if you roll them together. You would write “output 3d6 + 2d20”. Notice here the first number means how many dice, the d just stands for dice, and the last number is how many sides the dice has. So 5 dice with 24 sides will be written as 5d24.

The printer installs any needed drivers once you hook it up to a laptop. It’s pretty neat!

Speaking of the printer! You may use this handy card sheet to divide an A4 into small cards.
You may also follow these instructions in creating an origami box (they all create the same type of box).

If you need help with creating a test project on itch.io/jam/mjt2015, ask one of us (Jaffar, Samanta, Torsten)! We’ll gladly help set it up for you. 😀

We recommend uploading the following up to your game page:
– A rules/instructions sheet (+diagrams). See our prototyping advice post for help with that.
– Any assembly instructions and templates as needed.
– Action shots of the game being played (photos).
– Cover image for your game project. You usually upload this last but it seriously helps. 🙂
– A gameplay video explaining how the game is played. This is optional but also seriously helps.

As with all game jams, remember to embrace constraints and to focus on core game mechanics.
