  • National Adoption Month
  • National Alzheimer's Disease Awareness Month
  • American Diabetes Month
  • Aviation History Month
  • National Novel Writing Month
  • National American Indian Heritage Month

and more!

The Month

Every month has a collection of awareness topics, anything from Breast Cancer Awareness to Women's History Month. These topics are a great way to spark conversations about difficult or unusual topics.

The Jam

The focus of this jam is to create a game with one of November's awareness topics as a theme. The awareness topic doesn't have to be on the list or a US celebration.

Basically, if you've heard this phrase, you can use the topic: "November is [National|World|???] TOPIC Month."

Please put the name of the month you used in your description, so we know your theme!

The Timing

This Jam runs from October 19th at 0000 EST to November 7th at 0000 EST. Why does it start in October? So we can play the games in November!

The Extras

All levels of experience are welcome! This is a casual jam with no voting, so join the fun! Games should be created during the two week jam period, although if you want to start planning things out beforehand, that's totally fine!

Since there's no voting, you can submit multiple games if you like.

Extended the deadline to Nov 7th.
