Classic is the original format. From a pool of three different scriptural verses chosen by the community, the goal is to create a game that synthesizes the essence, teaching or story of the verses in a way that can be experienced in-game. That synthesis can happen through the narrative, story, mechanics, art, or some other component. The timeline of Speedgame: Classic is usually between two to three weeks.
