While I've NEVER been involved in any Game Design Competition, I use rubrics a lot in my room. Your rubric seems accurate in meeting design criteria. I'd suggest you might want to add something about the game's challenge. My son, and his friends, really enjoy playing games despite how long it may take to "level up." My observation is that these kids seem to enjoy games the most that have an Exponential growth in how many points must be earned for the next level up.
Thank you for your feedback, Glen. I will be sure to investigate adding game challenge somewhere in the mix - it's a very important part of game design. If the game is not challenging enough, then it tends to be boring, if it's too challenging, then it tends to be frustrating.
This should be addressed somewhere - perhaps it will serve best in the description for the "Overall Experience" rating.
