What is the Iron Game Chef?


One of the best ways to learn about game design is to actually do it. If you've been looking for an excuse or just needed some inspiration, here's some on a silver platter. The Iron Game Chef is a contest where many game designers are given a list of "ingredients" that they must use as game components. They are also given a theme they have to follow in some way. They basically have just over a week to get it done. Whoa, what can you design is just a week, you may ask? Well, these are just alpha stage designs. No one is expecting a polished product here.

Origonally, I believe the contest was started by Mike Holmes, but the torch has been passed to Andy Kitkowski who is doing a great job with it. Here is a link to the Game Chef Main Site and a link to the Discussion Boards.

If you are new to design, this is an excellent way to get your feet wet. Go in with the idea that this is a learning process and a great chance to get some feedback on your design style. I heartily encourage everyone to participate.
