Yep. These types of contests are usually hosted in other countries but some are hosted in the US. Ludum Dare seems to be the most popular and they have been doing it for years so we should definitely look at how they handle the rules.

I'm very excited as well!

Wish I could, but my time is very limited ):

You could also do like a list of things to include. Don't make it mandatory but make it fun!

I say this on a 24-hour game programming jam I had back a few months in my college, it was tons of fun, a lot of silliness and energy drinks were involved.

yeeeeaah, everyone in my team had to pry me from the computer to take a one hour break... I didn't wanted to stop once I started XD so I programmed for like 23 hours straight, was fun!

So I suggest people should join this jam if they have the chance :)
