Hi all
My name is Martin.
I play a lot of old board games with my brothers, Chartbusters, Careers, cabbie, Kingmaker and many more
We also play a lot of Texas Holdem Poker.
I made a Texas Holdem Poker board game for a bit of fun, 5 years ago.
We have been playing it for 5 years and only made a few small changes.
I did send a copy of it to a publisher around 4 years ago.
Never got a reply.
Can’t remember who I send it to now.
My brothers think I should have another go at publishing it.
But I have no idea of going about it.

Hi Martin, welcome aboard!

Wow, Kingmaker! I played that a couple of times in the 90's, and would like to try it again one day as I remember it having some interesting features.

So what makes your Hold'em game into a board game rather than just poker?

You should make contact FIRST

I don't know what "protocol" you followed, but normally you find out the submission e-mail for a publisher, contact them by e-mail giving a brief synopsis about your game and maybe providing a "sell sheet" or a picture of the board or play area.

Then they should respond if they are interested in "reading more". At this point in time, you should send them a soft-copy of your rulebook. In your case HOW you use the board to play the game.

If from that point they are still interested, they will ask you to submit a prototype of your game. They will probably playtest it and determine if they want to publish your game or not.

What comes next is a contract with the terms of the publishing deal.

This is the NORMAL protocol that should be followed...

Best of luck with your game!

You can still other players

You can steal other players cards and even change one of the flop cards.
Also lots of other things you can do.
There are 2 game you can play pineapple poker or Texas Holdem Poker and both games have 2 ways to play.
1st is a family game where everyone gets a pay out depends on how good their hands are and Pro game where only the best hand wins.
So I guess it's 4 games in 1.
