WHAT YOU NEED TO ENTER
Please read our Terms carefully. You will be required to accept these terms prior to entering work on the submission site.
Fees are $45.00 from April 1 – April 30 and $65.00 from May 1 – June 14. Submissions close June 14, 2015. Games must be postmarked by June 10th. To help with shipping costs, we provide a discount code in the submission system just for TableTop Games.
IMPORTANT! Once our panel of expert game judges choose 5 nominees, the public will vote on their favorite game using photos you provide. This is for promotional purposes only, as our panel of judges will still choose a winner in this category. Voting will provide an opportunity for more people to see your work. We will NOT require you to make your game available to the public for free. Should you become a nominee, we will ask for high quality photos to represent your game (these videos will also be used as segments during the live broadcast). Learn more about our process.
Game published after Jan 2013.
Published games only (this includes self published). Titles that are not from major publishing companies that are part of an acquisition or partners of major corporations.
We accept board games, card games, dice games, miniature games, pen-and-paper. Games must be physical, and do not include computer or video games.
We do NOT accept prototypes, incomplete games or role playing games (RPG) at this time. Though we support all game creators and products, our volunteer judges and experts are not able to spend the proper time needed with RPGs. In support of our community, should you have an RPG you want to promote, tweet us @TheGeekieAwards and we’d be happy to share it with our fans!
Required Submission Materials
