Play to win
Hasbro game experts and celebrity judge Daymond John will select one Grand Prize Winner to receive $25,000 and a trip for four to Hasbro’s headquarters! Legendary game company Hasbro will provide mentorship for the winner and the possibility for their game to be made a reality.
Crowdfund like a pro
With mentorship from Hasbro and Indiegogo, five finalists will launch campaigns with all the best insider tips on how to crowdfund games. And the funding isn’t limited to one winner—each of the five finalists will receive $2,000 from Hasbro to help develop their idea.
Congratulations to the finalists of the Fall 2016 Hasbro challenge!
After reviewing more than 600 entries from game designers and inventors worldwide, we’re thrilled to announce that Hasbro has officially selected Chibi Quest!, Monsters in the Elevator, Trash Pandas, Cloud Control and Aardvark’s Runaway Railroad as the top five finalists for the Hasbro Gaming Lab Fall 2016 Next Great Game Challenge.
One Grand Prize Winner will receive $25,000, a trip to Hasbro HQ, and the opportunity to work with Hasbro’s game design professionals to make their game a reality.
Celebrating the previous winners
“Every time you can put something that’s well-designed in a kid’s hands, you’re going to inspire another kid twenty years from now.”
– Dan Goodsell, 2015 Grand Prize Winner on his game available in Target and online
In 2015, game creator Dan Goodsell’s inspiring and adorable campaign for The Mr. Toast Game was chosen to be manufactured by Hasbro and brought to stores nationwide. They did the same for the runner-up Indiegogo campaign for Hexes! (sold under the name “HEX CASTERS”) —a game of goofy wizardry that has players casting hexes like sneezing and singing, in living rooms far and wide.
