The goal of this blog is to take people through all the steps that we took in getting our board games published. We try to be as transparent as possible. We also use it to update everyone on what’s happening with our current or upcoming games. We recommend you start by clicking on “The Steps” and start at Step 1 – and go from there.
Let us know your thoughts and let us know your challenges and successes in getting your game published!

Decided to look you up and came upon this webisite. Look forward to playing some of your games and hearing about all the other things you have in the works.
Hey Yee – thanks for saying hi! Are you a board gamer? I play every Tuesday at Connection Games in Vancouver at Renfrew and Grandview…come on out as it’s open to the public!
I’m a pretty big gamer in general. Board games, card games, video games, you name it. I’ll see if i can make it down to Connection Tuesday sometime. I usually work Tuesday nights.
Yee – the game night has moved to Monday nights at Connection Game store on Renfrew and Grandview. Come on down sometime – we are all adult gamers and we range anywhere from 4-9 people…slowly growing!
Hope the game launch at S&L goes great tonight! Sorry I can’t be there, congrats!!
