Green Board Games is searching for the next rising star of the industry with its Young Games Inventor of the Year 2015 initiative.

The company is tasking all children under the age of 16 to devise the next hit gaming title to stand a chance of winning ‘their height in Green Board Game products.’

This year will see one winner selected in the Judge’s Award who will be chosen by a panel of judges and announced on November 5th.

Not only will the winner receive a bundle of Green Board Game products, but will also see their idea turned into a real game, created by the Green Board Games production team.

Last year saw seven-year-old Fred Williams take home the grand prize for his numerically challenging board game concept, Summit Up. The game challenged players to complete increasingly taxing mathematical sums in order to reach the top of the mountain.

"The concept is to design a game from scratch, make up the rules and work through the game play, while considering what materials it would be made from and more," said Green Board Games via a Young Game Inventor of the Year press release.

"This is a great way to keep children engaged, energising their brain and learning important skills."

The 2015 competition is now open for entries and will close on November 1st, ahead of the announcement of the winners in October.
