New "under judgment" system
Games on Kongregate with fewer than 75 ratings are now "under judgment" until they pass this necessary threshold, at which point the average score will be visible. Please continue to rate games as normal, especially games that are still under judgment.

KONGAI BETA IS OUT!
Holy crap, our card game is finally live on the site, for approximately .25% of those who requested invitations (sorry 99.75% of you!).
We're starting things off very small, so only 50 of the 20,000 requests were granted access. We'll gradually invite more and more people as the testing continues. For now, we granted access to the people who applied with the highest level on Kongregate (roughly, anyone around level 31 or higher).
We're working incredibly hard to get this thing out to everyone else, so bear with us for a bit!

We at Kongregate are fully aware of how lame it is to get excited about advertisements, but that won't stop us from proclaiming our love to Nokia for buying out our ad inventory for the next week. This might not stop contributing developers on Kongregate either, who will see a significant boost in shared ad revenue over the course of our promotion of Mosh. Mosh is basically like Kongregate for mobile games, plus ringtones. It's actually pretty neat: Feel free to check it out by clicking on, well, you'll figure it out.
So thanks, Nokia! I guess now we can finally forgive you for the N-Gage.

Monsters' Den wins weekly contest
Monsters' Den was last week's $250 contest winner, and it also found its way onto Digg last night. This week's challenge and one of Kongregate's latest sponsored games, Mutually Assured Destruction was also a runner-up last week for $150. The other runner-up was Mardek RPG Chapter 2. The first chapter also scored extremely well, and we can't resist Areas as another honorable mention.
