A big thank you to everyone who submitted!

Our goal is to bring together a selection of the finest games produced in New Zealand and Oceania - one of which is probably yours! So if you're a Kiwi, Aussie, or just awesome and have a board game, card game, videogame, alt ctrl game, or any other kind of game that you're proud of, then please let us know about it!

We've assembled a team of judges from various parts of the industry that will be playing each game and forming a pool of finalists. Each finalist game will be featured at the NZ Games Festival exhibition and be eligible for one of our coveted Pav Awards.

Please don't be too Kiwi about it and think your game isn't big enough or good enough - over the last few years we've had some real gems of games come in all sizes.
