Debuting in 2014, the well-received Build-a-World Game Show is a live action worldbuilding game and writer’s workshop designed and run by veteran game developer/designer Monica Valentinelli. Two teams of panelists compete to build a fantastic world in under an hour for fun and prizes. The Build-a-World Game Show incorporates audience participation, takes place in three rounds, and results in a fan-voted winner! Winners are awarded the Ring of Champions and may be serenaded by the audience.

The Build-a-World Game Show*, which has been playtested at conventions throughout the Midwest including Mo*Con X, Geek*Kon, CONvergence, the 74th World Con (MidAmerica Con II) and others, is now the centerpiece for a book of worldbuilding games designed by Monica Valentinelli.
