File 13, "The Game Inventor's Game", is a board game created by Tom Wham. File 13 first appeared in Dragon Magazine #72 and was later re-released by TSR, Inc. in the boxed set Best of the Dragon Magazine Games.

File 13 is an exaggerated simulation of the process of getting games published by a mythical game company called The Great Game Company in the Sky. It is implied that this fictional company is a reflection of TSR.

The name File 13 refers to a trash can — where, it is implied, most game ideas end up.
