We ARE currently accepting games submissions for:

Medium-Heavy Games

Mystery/Puzzle Games

Cooperative Games

Mass Market dexterity games

Theme specific games (see below)

"Gateway" euro games

In detail:

Medium-Heavy Games
We are looking for more Medium-Heavy complexity games. Games with a BGG weight rating of 3.5 to 4.5 such as 'Anachrony', 'On Mars', 'Tawantinsuyu: The Inca Empire' are good examples of the complexity we are looking for.
There are a few key things that we are looking for with these games:
  1. Theme Driven (A strong link between theme and mechanics)
  2. Interwoven Mechanics (Mechanics that affect each other rather than feeling separate from the rest of the game)
  3. Genuinely Unique (Something about the game needs to stand out as really unique)
  4. Not an area control/battle game
 

Mystery/Puzzle Games

We are currently looking for mystery or puzzle games with a twist to add to our catalogue. We would love to see more games that take use a unique mechanic or that challenge how players typically play mystery games. Games like Micro Macro and Undo are good examples of this.

Cooperative Games

Another thing we’d like to see more of in our submissions is cooperative games. We haven’t published any before but that doesn’t mean we’re not interested in doing so! We’re especially looking for smaller box cooperative games, Something similar in components and size to Pandemic or Catan

Theme specific

We are looking to expand into the following themes for our next games such as:

 

  1. Families

  2. Civilisation themes

  3. Murder mystery

  4. City building

  5. Town planning

 
Gateway Games

We would consider gateway games to be light euro games, but not necessarily "filler" games. They should be 30-60+ minutes. And contain a good mixture of the following components (not necessarily all). Other components are also acceptable.

 

  1.  A central board

  2. Multiple tokens

  3. Meeples

  4. A deck or two of cards

  5. Dice

  6. Tiles

Examples of games we would consider excellent in this category are games similar in style and component quantity to: Dice Hospital, Isle of Skye, Sagrada and Azul.

We will consider other games too but we will NOT consider:

War Games, or games set in a historic battle

Deck-building games (where deck-building is the main mechanic)

Roll & Write games (where Roll & Write is the main mechanic)

Political Games

'Take That' style games

Cards against humanity clones

Trivia Games

Abstract Games

Games with sport themes

 

Thanks for taking the time to submit your game!

 

P.S. We give special consideration to submissions that have a video and will almost always at least watch a video if the game meets the above criteria, for the best chances of success, please attach a video where possible!
