Game jam?

Game jams are comparable to hackathons, but for games. In under 48 hours (Friday afternoon through Sunday afternoon) you create a (digital or analog) game from scratch, including design, artwork, building and (hopefully) testing. Game jams revolve around inspiring one another, going crazy with experimental ideas and celebrating how wonderful game development is.
