I was considering giving this

I was considering giving this a try.. I have my own site setup at www.dungeonlooter.com but a friend of mine has made a posting on craigslist as well. I have a smaller local CON i am attending in March, so i might just wait till after then, before trying to check out the Ebay option. I really would rather direct traffic to my own site then use a 3rd party.. but then again.. i have sold a lot of stuff on Ebay that i didn't think would even get a single bid.. so who knows...

dungeonlooter,have you

dungeonlooter,

have you considered introducing your game on BGG? I don't think the moderators mind if you are open about it. You will need to be careful with using the link though or it will come across as spam.

I went to BGG (i am assuming you are refering to Board Game Geek) but when i tried to submit, it came back saying they are currently not accepting new submissions .... so i guess i can try again.

There is a place in the BGG forums for inductry announcements. it's ok to pimp your product there and include links.

BGG game submission was down

BGG game submission was down for a couple of weeks or so, but it's back up now.

Regarding selling through ebay: There is two publishers that constantly spam the board wargame category at ebay with their print and play games. I would hesitate to buy anything from them because of that, ever.

Just curious

What do you mean by spam? Do you mean they always have a copy of their game for sale? Why exactly is that spam? A lot of vendors on e-bay have a permanent listing for their products. Not sure why you would consider that spam, it's just good business sense.
