Make It So: Meet the Klingons

by Charlie Plaine, Chairman

30th December 2009

Make It So: The Search For the Next Assistant Game Designer, will be getting started in early 2010. Contestants will have the chance to compete for an Assistant Game Designer spot for an upcoming Second Edition virtual expansion. The competition will feature challenges, themes, and contests designed to challenge preconceptions and expand the mind.

On their applications, each contestant was asked to design a card that is intended to be given away to new players at conventions and large tournaments. Instead of lore, the card will have basic information about The Continuing Committee. The card should be instantly recognizable as Star Trek. Below, find the five members of the Klingon Team, and their entries:
