If you haven't heard, we launched a new Maker Challenge last week focused on games, games, games!
I'm a big fan of this challenge because I'm kind of a game fanatic. I also like this challenge because it's very open-ended in terms of the end product. Any kind of game, game accessory, or add-on for an existing game is, well, "fair game" for earning a $20 Inventables gift card. (Note: you can also submit an Easel screenshot of your game for a $5 gift code reward.)
There are a few rules you should review before submitting to the challenge. The most important thing to know is that, in order to receive the $20 gift code, you'll need to submit a photo of your carved game. You can still receive a $5 gift code for an Easel screenshot of your game, but the $20 reward is only for carved projects. The rewards are not stackable—you can only earn the $5 reward or the $20 reward, not both—so choose your course wisely when submitting your submission.
As long as you have a photo of the carved project (or Easel screenshot) and a valid link to a public Easel file of the project added to the Maker Challenge submissions page, you can earn a gift card!
I've seen a ton of incredible games here on the forum (cough cough cribbage boards cough ), and I know there are a lot of creative minds occupying this space. It would be wonderful to see the projects you all submit to the challenge!
My first game project was an inlaid checkers board (it can be used for chess, too). I'm a big fan of the inlay app in Easel, even though I'm a terrible chess player. You can learn more about how I made this board in this Easel Live episode:
Deadline for submissions is June 30 at 11:59 p.m. CST. (You can still submit games after that deadline, but you will not be eligible for the $20 gift code reward). Bring on the games!
