Serious Game Jam (SGJ) is one of the major events organized by DiGRA JAPAN every year since 2014. This study proposes a prototype SGJ operation manual. Although eight SGJ events have been organized so far, the first few events were conducted based on the manuals for a general game jam and the organizer’s experiences. However, considering the process of developing entertainment and serious games is different, an operation manual is required for organizers of SGJs.
