Are you a master of facts? Have you ever wanted to beat adults in a trivia game? Trivia games can often be one-sided, how can a kid compete with an adult who has more knowledge?
Calliope Games and Richard Garfield (the inventor of Magic the Gathering) designed Hive Mind, a trivia game that puts all players on equal footing. Can you design the next great trivia game?
In the Design Your Own Trivia Game competition, students will compete to design the next great trivia game for kids!
About the Competition
Students can work by themselves or in a team of 2 people to submit their idea for a trivia game to help teach any science or math topic of their choice.
You will not be required to physically build the game. You just need to describe the game and provide instructions for how it’s played and what it teaches.
The purpose of the competition is to have fun and be creative. Brainstorming and completion of the design document should take somewhere between two (2) to five (5) hours.
Students will put forth their best ideas and a panel of judges will pick twelve (12) winners. The two (2) winning teams will each receive a $150 prize packs plus an opportunity to meet with the Calliope team, discuss their vision for the game, and learn about the game design process. The ten (10) runner up teams will each receive $50 prize packs of Calliope products.
EVERY team that submits an idea will receive a substantial discount code to purchase Calliope Games!
