Another Design Contest

It's always nice when a new design contest comes up...especially when that design contest has restrictions on it that perfectly match a current project that you're working on.

Tin Ear Game Design Contest

Here are your design constraints, one Large, 8oz tin, 4 1/4in x 3 1/8in x 1in. 

Whatever you can fit into the container is allowable as part of the base game. 

Jump drives are right out! 

You may use any surface of the container to help play or explain your game as well as the materials that you put in the tin. 

Your game may be of any sort. 

Thematic use of the container is encouraged. 

You have till the end of January to complete your entry and post the results here for us all to marvel over. 

The rules are subject to change as I just came up with this off the top of my head!

The tin could be suitably weathered to look like a scavenged item.

This could be a great way to merchandise a hardcopy of the final product (rather than just having pdf printable softcopies).

I wonder what people would pay for a complete game in a package like this?
