Rubrics and Guidelines




Submit Game and Prototype to BLORG

Submit your Reacting Concepts and Prototypes using this Google Form. Each submission is reviewed by members of our Editorial Board. Successful submissions will receive additional materials and information concerning game development.

This Big List of Reacting Games (or the BLORG) contains all of the known Reacting games, prototypes, and concepts. It also includes the names of the authors and the development editor.

  • Level 5 games have been reviewed and published; instructor materials are available on this site but student manuals must be purchased from the publisher.
  • Level 4 games have completed review by the Editorial Board but are unpublished. All game materials for them should be available on this site.
  • Level 3 games are currently under review by the Editorial Board. All game materials for them should be available on this site.
  • Level 2 games are not yet under review but some materials may be available by contacting the game author.
  • Level 1 games do not yet have sufficient materials such that the game can be played by anyone other than the game author.
This website is still in beta.  Please email us with feedback and ideas. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
