Hey everyone, I'm 104% new.

I came to this community because I wanted critiques on a card game that I am working on. So, here are my questions:

-Is this a good site for posting a card game idea? (It's a fairly non-traditional card game.)
-Where would I post it (within the design area)?
-If you were me, would you post it despite the possibility of it being stolen?

Thank you for your time.

I wouldn't worry about it getting stolen.

I'm assuming you are concerned about idea-stealing because you feel you may profit off this game? Realistically, the basic idea on a game is a real small part of making money off a game, and as I see it, there is a considerable excess of them.

Sorry to revive a dead thread, but for anyone else who worries about this, I heard some interesting advice from a business incubator / angel investing group that went something like this: Don't worry about people stealing your idea. The big problem is going to be trying to shove it down their throats.
