    REMEMBER: The contest ends Sunday April 1st at Midnight / Monday April 2nd at 00:01:00 AM Eastern Standard Time (US East Coast)

    Hi all, I‘ll be appending information soon into the Rules Thread and the site, but here‘s a heads up.

    To submit your final game entry to the Game Chef Competition:

    1) In your game, make a „Cover Sheet“ (generally make this the first page of your final doc, pdf, txt file). On your cover sheet, write:
    * YOUR FEEDBACK GROUP NAME (if you tapped in)
    * A brief 1-3 sentence „BACK COVER BLURB“ that tells us what your game is about

    This „back cover blurb“ is important for us as we cross-post the entries to

    2) Create a post in This Thread Right Here, and Attach your document or archive to your post. Most formats are recognized, but the common ones are PDF, DOC, RTF, ZIP, RAR, TXT. If you decide later (before the contest ends) to make a change and resubmit your work, you can Edit your post and delete the attachment, then re-attach a new attachment.

    In the post itself, feel free to write whatever you want, but also please post your Back Cover Blurb again into your post. See the example post below.

    3) After your back cover blurb in the post, if you wish to NOT have your entry uploaded and archived at, please say so briefly. Something like „Please do not archive my entry at“. Please note that the default is to have all Game Chef entries archived at that site: They won‘t republish the games, you have complete control over the content (you can revise it, or even take it down completely), and 1km1kt has been an awesome help in the past with cataloging and archiving Game Chef and 24 Hour RPG entries. However, we understand if you want to maintain 100% control over your game, so we won‘t lock the contest down by requiring all participants to submit their entries to 1km1kt. Please do consider leaving it there, though, as a footprint of the game in its early stages of development.

    If you wish to have your entry archived at 1km1kt, no need to say anything here; by default it will be archived.

    4) Please: No other conversation, message, post that DOES NOT CONTAIN YOUR GAME here. Any post, public or whispered here, that does not contain an attached entry will be DELETED without being read. This is to make sure that we get an accurate count and so that no entries are accidentally left out or forgotten. If you have questions or technical issues, please create a new topic to discuss this.

    5) Write this down: GAMECHEF (atmark) GMAIL (dot) COM. If for some reason this website is down, has SQL issues or whatever, and it is starting approach the last minute on Saturday evening, then submit your work to the email address listed. Do not submit your work to both the email and this website: The email is only there if there is a technical issue when it comes time to submit your work. This is just a backup plan in case something goes wrong.

    That is all. Thanks for your time!

    Hey all, whew that was hard. Thanks to my team for their feedback in helping to produce this work!

    Blurb: „In the land of warriors and wizards, one class stands above all in the war between humanity and the Dragons: The Chocolatier. Producing delicious chocolate sweets, they roam the countryside challenging each other for the right to fight the dragons, and create hope for the children of the landed gentry. A gritty, serious, thought-provoking game for 3-5 players.“

    Is it hubris, being the first to post in the submissions thread, nearly a week before things are due? Probably.

    This is, as of the time of posting, an unfinished manuscript. I am posting it now because I am about to go out to the hospital for a minor operation, and I don‘t know how badly I‘m going to react to the sedation they are using. It should only put me out for the rest of the day, but I may not be able to do any more work if it takes me in a funny way. As a precaution, I‘m uploading what I‘ve got finished now. I‘d appreciate it if people didn‘t download it, as it would embarrass me for people to read this junk before I have time to properly edit it (it‘s no doubt full of mistakes). Still, better safe than sorry.

    [Update] Feel like I‘ve been hit in the jaw by a buick, but otherwise recovering well. Should be able to finish the game off to a respectable level of completion unless the stitches fall out or something equally unpleasant happens to me.

    [Final Update] OK, I just uploaded what I think is the final version of the game. If the file you download doesn‘t have a pretty carnival mask on the cover, then you‘ve got an old version of the file and need to grab an update.


    France, 1870. A terrible, incurable disease is ravaging the population, leaving its victims twitching and writhing in agony, waiting for a merciful death to claim them. Two factions have arisen to combat this dreaded plague, each with their own beliefs about its nature, each with their own methods of tackling it. Who shall be the one to save all of France from its dread effects? Who, in the end, is right? That is something for you to decide.

    [PS. Noted someone further down had asked not to be archived at 1KM1KT. I didn‘t know it was possible to opt out of this feature, but if it is, I would also like my entry to not be archived. I like to sell these games after the contests, and it makes it harder if people can get the majority of the text for free, no matter how much further development you do in the meantime.]

I might edit it some more, but like everyone else I have some real life things going on that might make me miss posting so here it is.

    Life has had me pretty for the last week and I could not create as much of a setting info as I would have liked, but the game is complete and playable. I may continue working on it if anyone shows any interest in seeing more.

    A gambler trying to win the next handâ?¦
    A doctor desperately trying to save an innocent lifeâ?¦
    A swordsman fighting to save his ownâ?¦
    All these people are unknowingly weaving the threads of destiny to improve their odds. But what if you could knowingly control these abilities, would you be a great hero? Or will your actions unbalance fate and threaten destroy yourself and the world?

    Faust and Friends

    College is a time for experimentation, so when your friend Faust suggested selling your souls for an open tap of demonic intervention you jumped at the chance. Especially since you know something that snappily dressed demon doesn‘t - souls don‘t actually exist. Faust and Friends is a game of college friends who have sold their souls to acquire authority and wealth, pleasures beyond imagining, and ancient secrets and lore.

    Thanks to Curufea from my group, and Mister Duck and Caledonian for in person discussions. Also thanks to JackieSixty, Algi, Secret, and Remi Treuer for their feedback on Currency - my original front-runner game chef submission. I‘m hoping to complete that in the near term.

    Unfortunately I have to run a mini-con this weekend, so while I may even playtest Faust and Friends, I won‘t be able to modify it effectively after this morning. So I hope you all enjoy, and without further ado:

    Is the Desert an inter-dimensional nexus? A world on the edge of dreams? A twisted, magical version of the Arabian Nights? You have no idea. But to obtain your heart‘s desire, you must find the Desert Rose.

    Wow, 41 pages (including cards)! I‘m surprised at how much I managed to get out.

    Regretfully, I‘ll be bowing out before the judging begins. Life has become busier than I had hoped, and I will not be able to judge anyone else‘s entry. Still, thought I‘d throw out what I‘ve got if anyone wants to see it.

    Dunno if this can be reposted to 1km1kt with the other entries under Game Chef rules, but if it can that would be great by me.

    Thanks for hosting such a great contest. To all of my co-game-writers: you guys rock.

    The Saltwater Rose

    You‘re searching the world for the Saltwater Rose. But others are searching too and, to get it, they‘ll destroy everything sacred to you.

    This is a play-by-post game, which uses an Internet bulletin board, a public lottery and Google Maps.

    They said pop culture would destroy the world, but it is the only thing that survived.

    The year isâ?¦no longer important. Earth is gone, blown apart and replaced by a giant alien battle station called The Rose.
    You are an alien, a Good Guy, fighting in a war against the Bad Guys. It does not matter where you are from, what you look like, or your gender. Everything you got going for you comes from your human heroes, selected from a hundred yearsâ?™ worth of radio, TV, and Internet signals still floating around the solar system.

    Ingredients: Palace, Memory, Currency

    A note on the documents - the Sourcebook is two weeks worth of compiling research and reference material and is therefore „not my work“, and is not necessary to play the game. The only document that needs to be looked at for judging purposes is the Versailles Rulebook. However, for a complete game - all four of these attachments are recommended.

    [last minute edit]
    Darnit - it‘s too late to edit the documents again, but let me just add that there should be a blank page after the cover page (or print the cover page separately). Otherwise the page numbering is screwed up.
    [further annoying edit]
    The image on page 6 overlaps and makes the text unreadable (grr) - it should be 1. Class (1 card) 2. Birth (1 card) 3. Body (1 card) 4. Beliefs (2 cards) 5. Reputations (2 cards) 6. Favours (2 cards) 7. Repartee (2 cards) 8. Skills (5 cards) 9. Contacts (3 cards) 10.Currency (1 card)


    The roleplaying game of intrigue and betrayal in the court of King Louis XV. As minor nobles of lesser families, players contend in witty repartee with the the residents of the Palace of Versailles in hopes of winning their confidences or swaying them to their causes. Tarot cards determine the success or failure of every verbal encounter.

    For centuries, five religious Orders have protected the surviving relics of the Garden of Eden. Despite their efforts, they could not stop Iconoclasts from stealing the relics. Now only one relic remains in their careâ?”the First Rose. Using the power of the First Rose, the orders have trained their youngest to reclaim the stolen relics of the Garden. These claimants can shift reality to their will, and they will take the fight to the iconoclasts. The Iconoclasts will be defeated; the relics will be returned; and the First Rose will be protected.

    As the Palace fleet approaches the new star, something that hasn‘t happened in hundreds of years, the fragile alliances and agreements between the Palaces are increasingly coming under strain.

    You are a citizen of one of the Palaces, one that‘s currently at war.

    And you‘re not just any citizen.

    Your friends and neighbors don‘t know it, but you are a spook.

    You are an elite agent trained to use drugs to destroy and create memories. This is how wars are fought in the Palace fleet.

    The front lines of the war are memories, and enemy spooks will remodel yours if you let your guard down.

    In a society without violence, power is the ability to change your enemy‘s mind.

    Shards of a Dying God
    (Sacred, Inconsistency, Thread)


    A God is dying, adrift in the waters of forgetfulness.

    Shards of the God‘s consciousness, aspects of its memory, struggle to remember its existence by resolving the intricate threads of myth to define the nature of the God, and thereby delineate its Sacred Story.

    Shards of a Dying God weaves a tale of the God‘s struggle to reconcile its own story, reviewing the process of its Becoming to decide what it has Become.

    Only when a God forgets itself can it truly die.

The climate is harsh and made all the harsher by the terrors that surround this small, stockaded community. Dire wolves, infernal spirits, and other horrific abominations roam in the shadows in the forests and mountains in Vercove, France. It falls on the shoulders of the Huntsmen to protect the community from these dangers. Though the title of Huntsman is a badge of distinction, it is not a badge of honor. Every Huntsman that ever lived has died at a young age leaving behind a loved one and a grateful community.

    Palace of Mental Hygiene

    Ingredients: Palace, Memory, Drug

    You had the courage to defy the oppressive government. Now they have your body, but what they really want is your mind. Will you be able to resist, or will you wind up being â?œrehabilitatedâ?? like so many other unfortunates before you.

    Grassroots: The Role-Playing Game of Public Opinion

    The fate of the world is not decided on the battlefield or in fistfights, but on television, in newspapers, on the Internet. Great warriors do battle not with sword and gun, but with lie and soundbyte. Recreate your favorite political dramas, where there‘s little physical violence, but the ‚action‘ comes in techno-music-soundtracked montages of people typing on computers and the drama of meeting trenchcoated informants in dim parking lots. From The West Wing to All The King‘s Men, from Erin Brockovich to Primary Colors, Grassroots recreates it all. Will you fight the good fight, using honesty as the best policy, or will you lower yourself into the realm of muckrakers and sleaze artists? Are you willing to fix an election so the best man wins? How many favors will you call in, how much trouble will you risk, to succeed? Will you go so far, only to realize that you‘ve sacrificed everything you used to hold sacred?

    There are two sides to every story… but the story is written by the victors. And it doesn‘t matter who wins… as long as people -think- you won.
