Official Alley Cat Games Submission page
For the best chance of successfully submitting your game to us, please read this detailed description BEFORE filling in the form below
We ARE currently accepting games submissions for:
Mass Market dexterity games
Theme specific games (see below)
"Gateway" euro 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:
Theme Driven (A strong link between theme and mechanics)
Interwoven Mechanics (Mechanics that affect each other rather than feeling separate from the rest of the game)
Genuinely Unique (Something about the game needs to stand out as really unique)
Not an area control/battle game
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.
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
We are looking to expand into the following themes for our next games such as:
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.
A central board
A deck or two of cards
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)
'Take That' style games
Cards against humanity clones
Games with sport themes
Thanks for taking the time to submit your game!
