A Game That Lasts 1,000 Years

Fueled by a passion to create a game of such longevity, game designer Daniel Solis has raised a challenge to every game designer in the world with a $1,000 prize to boot.

What separates chess, tag, checkers, or card games from all the high-tech games of today is longevity – these board and card games have lasted centuries and have been passed on among numerous generations to be shared and enjoyed.

Fueled by a passion to create a game of such longevity, game designer Daniel Solis has raised a challenge to every game designer in the world with a $1,000 prize to boot:

Create a game. The game can be of any theme or genre you desire, but there is one restriction: You’re creating a “new classic,” like Chess, Tag or card games. So, create a game to be enjoyed by generations of players for a thousand years.
