Game Chef: Winners Announced!

Congratulations to the winners of this year's Game Chef! They are:

All's Well That Ends As You Like It, by Jennifer Hardy and Matthew Mazurek
Forsooth!, by Sam Liberty and Kevin Spak

("Sam Liberty" is pretty obviously a superhero's mundane secret identity, right?)

Master Chef Jonathan Walton and Professor Walton had some great feedback on Globe Records -- much appreciated! Looking forward to next year, and somehow having more time to do it.

Game Chef: Finals!

Hey, Globe Records made the finals for Game Chef 2011! And there are only six of us (out of 66), which is kinda crazy.

The other five finalists are:

  • Daughters of Exile by Steve Darlington
    Your Father wishes you to marry. You wish to decide for yourself. Cut a path between duty, love and rebellion.
  • All’s Well That Ends as You Like It
    by Jennifer Hardy & Matthew Mazurek

    Dueling, wooing, vows kept or forsworn, drunkenness, thievery, costumes, identical twins, rightful rulers, virtuous innocents, ghosts, and much more.
  • Forsooth! by Sam Liberty & Kevin Spak
    Players each control a small cast of characters to improvise a play of Shakespearean scope without a GM or storyteller.
  • A Midsummer Night’s Scheme
    by Nat Barmore (woodelf) w/ Caitlin Doran

    Exiled faeries compete to prank mortals they care for, in order to regain favor at the Summer Court.
  • The Lost Years by Matthew Nielsen
    A Game of Shakespeare and time travel. Characters cast out of the Bard’s plays must choose between their mission and their personal desires.
Congrats to my fellow finalists! It's an honor to be counted among you. I look forward to one of you being declared the winner at GenCon!
