The results are in for the BGG Mint Tin Design Contest. We are thrilled at how well Assembly: Spaceship Builders did, particularly given that this was the first contest we entered (second we completed). There were a total of 26 entries with Assembly: Spaceship Builders gaining the 4th highest Geek Gold payout and achieved these category rankings:

  • 1st place: Best Written Rules
  • 3rd place: Most Innovative Mechanic
  • 6th place: Best Overall Design
  • 6th place: Best Theme

Well done to everyone entered and thank-you to anyone who voted – we were up against some stiff competition and I’m glad to see that my favourite design (Garrison: A Solo Game) came in the top 3 for best overall design.
