From over 600 submissions, our judges have chosen The Plot Thickens! Created by friends Brigette Indelicato, Mike Callahan, and Thomas Rochelle of Philadelphia, P.A., The Plot Thickens is a collaborative storytelling game where players weave together tales of intrigue, action or just plain silliness, using a hand of story cards.

The winners will receive $25,000 cash prize, a trip to Hasbro HQ in Rhode Island, and the opportunity to work with us to make their game a reality.
