So I am very new at the process of creating a board game. Lately I have been thinking increadibly hard about an idea I have been toying around with for years. Beyond the game mechanics and board selection what else should I be thinking about to bring my idea to life? Also is there a way for me to check if this idea already exists, like some sort of board game registry?

I wouldn't be overly concerned about duplication to begin with- your game will invariably share some aspects with other games already available.

as far as other steps, i'd suggest picking up a book or two on the subject (search for board game design at

additionally, i recommend you make a prototype of your game, and playtest as much as possible with as many different people as possible to ensure everything works the way you want it to.
