Is there such an attempt in the English language ?

There was this:

http://www.indie-rpgs.com/forum/index.php?topic=20935.0

That was both fun and frustrating. A forge member started the contest but was unable to follow through with it at the last minute. There were some really good entries and it was a shame not showcase the work. After some discussion with a few other contestants, I volunteered to see it through to the end. I'm not particularly web-savy so I used Yahoo Groups to host the games, since it had all the features I needed and I had some experience with it.

I haven't closed the group, so the entries should still be viewable. I'm pretty sure that the guy who issued the challenge was directly inspired by the overseas contests. It would certainly be cool to see more challenge/exercises like this.

It was great fun. The entries were great and all of the designers were quite cool. I had been giving some thought to running another one this fall, and possibly making it an annual thing.

For those who speak french, you can find all the "one page rpg" related to the "frontier" at this adress :
http://www.indie-rpg.info/product_info.php?products_id=129

It's a webzine dedicated to them, and some more. Hope you'll like it (and the music). And Philippe, if you need help for the translation, email me, i'd be pleased.

I'm so busy with lots of things ... including my latest 1-page RPG, Aksaina, about the Trojan Wars.

Finally the contest has been abandoned after 13 months (and 112 games).

Since it's over, I have decided to translate my most interesting 1-page games into English.

Now available : Five Rivers
A RPG about people who came back from the dead with kewl powerz.

That's a game based on simple concepts :
 - NDE survivors have kewl powers, some of them are evil
 - kewl powers linked the five rivers of Inferno (kokytos, phlegethon, lethe, styx, acheron)
 - two stats : life and death

What a shame Sad
Anyway, I've just made a decision : in 2008, I'll attempt my own version of the old 52-pickup (aborted) challenge, from RPG.net : http://www.rpg.net/news+reviews/collists/52pickup.html

I'll write 52 1-page RPGs next year, one per week...
