Thank you for this information. I think I will focus on getting the game submitted and then submit the tips that I have gathered. I feel those tips are necessary to properly utilize the gaming framework that I'm leveraging.

One more thing,
To be in reckoning for the monthly $1000 prize, do I need to submit my game by 31 Oct 2012?

Or will the submission still be valid for the monthly draw if I submit by the last date, 6 Nov 2012? I think that I really could use that extra time.

Do let me know.
