Welcome to the Cliki registration page for the 2010 International Lisp Game Expo. The 2010 ILGE is part of an ongoing series of design contests focused on Lisp; See the LispGameDesignChallenge page for information on past contests.

Contest guidelines can be found on David O'Toole's 2010 ILGE page.

Contest entries may be written in any dialect of Lisp.


Put your name in this section if you or your team will be creating a game. List team members (IRC handles if you got em), and possibly describe your design.
