Hey Everyone

I am going to start a new boardgame, so I was searching through some themes I might use. To my suprise I found a nice post (Themes waiting to be used) that talked about new, and done to death themes.

To my suprise I found a nice idea to make a boardgame, about making boardgames. So I started to brainstorm a bit, and this is what I got so far.

B.G.D
Theme - Boardgame creating
Players - 2-5(?)

Designer Each player is boardgame designer/publisher.
You try to collect the main parts of a game (Mechinacs, Theme, Name, Rules) You must collect all the parts of a specific game (I.E. You can't have the name "Treasure Hunter" and a theme about "City-buildings")

Publisher Once you have a complete game, you get to publish your game. If you are first player you may get more money, during the long run, but this person might have cut-corners to get his game out quickly.

Winning First player to get X amount of money wins!

Ok, this is what I have so far.

P.S This is in the brainstorming phase, anything thing you give me will most likely help me. Also thx to Drakehorse, Zaiga, and Bryk for this idea.

Don't forget the art and artist. This is a vital compenent for setting up appeal for purchase as well as creating buzz value and more satisfying gaming experience, which could result in more sales from others in a gaming group.

I rank art/graphic design as one of the components along with theme and mechanics.
