I am developing a family/ party type board game. I have done a number of play test with great feedback. I plan on doing some more. In the interim I am getting quotes for self-publishing the game and would like your input.
- any manufacturers you'd recommend?
- do you know of any good distributers/ sales reps?
- financing for new start-ups is just about non-existent. do you know of any investors?
- any folks in the Denver area that would like to play test a party game?

Thanks!
Lisa

We'll publish you.

We're going to start publishing games from all developers in about a month. We'll handle production, distribution, and sales with our own money. And we'll sell you copies of your game at cost so you can sell them to local stores, to friends, or at conventions. Follow us on Twitter for the announcement.

We're Jumping Into The Ring Too

Clever Mojo Games is in a similar position. We're about to release our first game, Ogre Castle, on July 1st and will follow that up with another called Oubliette before the end of the year. We're working with three new designers now and may select others. Our initial plan is to do short production runs (500 to 1000 copies) and sell them through our web site. Designers would be paid a commission on each game sold.

Check out www.thegpa.org, which is an association of smaller publishers that has some good resources for first-time publishers.

And as long as we're discussing services offered Blue Panther does prototyping and small production runs of games and game components, including POD cards and boxes. Visit www.bluepantherllc.com

The GPA is a great source. Discover Games, run by Mary Couzin, also has some good stuff for members, but is more oriented towards "mainstream" games. Steve's Blue Panther is gong to cream me on the low end (sub-1000), but I would be remiss if I didn' t mention that Imagigrafx prints games as well! www.imagigrafx.com
