Hasbro has teamed with the crowd-funding platform Indiegogo in the search for the next hit face-to-face party game.

In what has been titled The Next Great Game Challenge, Hasbro Gaming Lab has joined the online crowd-sourcing site to tap into the creativity of the public in a hunt for the next hit gaming title.

The Challenge encourages game designers to share their creations via the Next Great Game Challenge site, before launching their Indiegogo campaigns to crowdfund their ideas and build fan support.

Hasbro will then select a grand prize winner, offering the chosen title $10,000 and a trip to Hasbro head offices to help its game development team turn the winning title into a fully fledged game.

“All ideas will be evaluated by a team of Hasbro game experts and designers who will be looking specifically at factors like gameplay mechanics, story and theme,” read a statement via the Indiegogo Blog.

Hasbro and Indiegogo’s The Next Great Game Challenge will run until September 25th, 2015 with finalists chosen on September 30th.
