Jurying

Help contribute to the SIX line-up selection process as a volunteer juror! You’ll be playing, reviewing, and voting on the many fantastic games submitted to Seattle Indies Expo.

  1. Jurors must be members of the Seattle Indies Facebook group.
  2. Jurors will have 3 weeks (between June 17th and July 7th) to judge games.
  3. Jurors who opt-in to review multi-player games must attend one of 3 in-person multi-player sessions in Seattle.
  4. We ask that jurors play each game for a minimum of 15 minutes, to give each game a fair amount of time and consideration.
  5. Jurors are asked to play a minimum of 6 randomly assigned games.
    • Jurors who play at least 10 games will receive a free SIX T-shirt 👕
    • Jurors who play at least 20 games will receive an extra special secret gift 🎁
    • All jurors who show up to SIX will receive 2 free guaranteed drink tickets 🥂
  6. For each game, jurors will be asked to fill out a rubric of 4 questions. Written responses should be at least 200 characters each. You can view a sample of the rubric and answers here.
  7. We ask that jurors remember there is a human being behind every game. Critique should be constructive above all — and kindness and encouragement never goes amiss either.
  8. In order to reduce no-shows, we require potential jurors to fill out a trial review of a sample game. This ensures that they understand the amount of time & effort involved, and allows us to evaluate the quality of their feedback.

General

If you’re a roll-up-your-sleeves kinda person and would like to help us on the day of SIX, get in touch! We could always use an extra hand with helping exhibitors and keeping an eye on things. Volunteers present for at least one 3-hour shift will receive a free SIX T-shirt and 2 drink tickets.
