Fed up waiting for a publisher. I sent them three emails asking what they are doing and no reply apart from a newsletter after the third email.
Freakin cheeky if you ask me.

SO
Who are the top USA publishers for board games?

I'd go with Rio Grande and

I'd go with Rio Grande and Steve Jackson Games as some of the majors that take submissions . Could also try Bucephalus and Mayfair, but I don't know if they take submissions. In the UK, you may try Reiver Games.

Who did you e-mail and did you check to see if they had a submission policy first?

Mayfair is no longer taking open submissions.

There's a page for this here on the BGDF...

There's a list of publishers here on the BGDF at:

http://www.bgdf.com/node/621

I've been pretty liberal with sharing my research on that page, as have other BGDF-ers. However, check each publisher out yourself before submitting your ideas to them, as their acceptance criteria may have changed.

Best of luck,

Who was the publisher?

Just curious since Origins was last week, and a lot of them were in attendance and possibly a little behind from the event.

I am only looking for biggies.

I suppose I have to go through an agent for submission to Hasbro and Mattel?
This is BIG slice of profit doing that.

Make a point to look over what kinds of games a company publishes so you don't waste your time. You can get a good idea what they want by what they already sell.
