Oracle Pathway WINS the 5th City of Granollers Game Design Contest!

Oracle Pathway in play

Regular readers may remember my game Oracle Pathway. In February I polished up the prototype and rules and entered it into the City of Granollers game design contest. Last week I got the news that the game had been selected as one of the 10 finalists that the jury would meet to play in Granollers over the weekend, and on Monday the winner was announced: Oracle Pathway had won!

For non-Catalan readers Google translate offers the following faltering translations of those two pages: the 10 finalists and the announcement of the winner.

The contest is organised as part of the jugarXjugar games fair, which takes place this year in Granollers from 2nd–5th June: the very same weekend as the UK Game Expo in Birmingham. I shall be at the UK Games Expo, and will bring a prototype copy of Oracle Pathway with me: if you’re reading this, are going to be there and fancy a quick game do get in touch!

The photo above, taken from the jugarXjugar blog, shows some of the jury members hard at work, and it is thrilling to imagine the game being played and enjoyed by new people in far away lands — what more could a designer wish for?

So, I would like to offer my heartfelt thanks to all the jury members, to Oriol Comas i Coma and everyone else involved in organizing the contest, and to the City of Granollers itself for sponsoring the contest. Moltes gràcies!

Congratulations from one of the jury members! I was hoping to see you in Granollers, but it seems you'll be at UK Games Expo those days. Any hope of changing your mind and come to visit us?

Congrat's from Portugal Brett! As a game designer hobbyist I can imagine what you may feel right now! Hope to try your game one day!

Congratulation, i saw your games when i filmed the movie of the Jury last Week. Great Job !!!

I hope i'll put the movie on my Web site soon, so you'll see pictures of your game ;-)

Sorry for my bad english....
