What is Tabletop Deathmatch?


Tabletop Deathmatch is an independent game design contest by Cards Against Humanity. 300 game designers all over the country submitted their games, and we picked eight finalists and brought them to GenCon to pitch their prototypes to our panel of industry-leading judges. One game will be crowned the winner of Tabletop Deathmatch. They'll win a first printing from AdMagic paid for by Cards Against Humanity, and a booth at Gen Con 2015.
