I have seen how long a game can take to get published (if it ever gets published). I am seriously curious if anyone feels strongly about a self/un-published "diamond in the rough" waiting for a Z-man or other game publisher to come.

RULES:

1) Please mention someone elses' game. Don't self promote in the list; if you must, promote your game in the comments.

2) One game per user.

That's it!

First, I love abstracts. Secondly, I love tic tac toe variants. Third, this game should be cheap enough to produce.

The only problem I see is the game's own creator ranks it a 6. It still looks interesting...

This is a great game, well worth downloading. I guess it's a bit too complex for a major publisher to pick up which is a shame. But I would urge you to look at it and have a go.

Disclaimer: the designer is a friend of mine so I am biassed! However, other designer friends would agree that I am more than happy to trash their games if I don't like them, so you can rest assured that this comment is genuine.

This is a new game by a new game designer. In fact it is his first game and it is self published. I was very pleased when my copy arrived in the mail and I opened it to find quality design with quality components. My wife and I played a couple of quick games and were very impresses; we look forward to more plays with more players. This has lots of replay value.

John's first entry into the games market has certainly made an impression on me and I will be closely watching his other releases.

Good work! Keep 'em coming.

I traded for a copy of this from the creator. It's self-published; this does show, though the components aren't terrible either. The cards are of good quality, though the game board is lacking a bit.

Anyway, this game will obviously appeal to those that loved the hilarious 'Snakes on a Plane', but there's also a decent game here as well; I think many would enjoy it even if they didn't like the movie. There's a pretty good balance between choosing to save valuable cards for when they're needed and using as many cards as possible (you redraw up to 5 every turn, so unused cards are sort of wasted actions).

Worth checking out, and I'd recommend it. I rate it around a 7 after 5 plays.

I think very highly of this game, it's like a cross between Vegas Showdown and Puerto Rico. There are 9 different resources to manage, and you auction for the right to build various types of buildings, then build one of the appropriate type. The buildings give you income, resources, abilities and points. The game lasts 10 rounds, so doesn't take all that long. It's got lots of emergent strategy. I like to play it whenever I get the chance (I made myself a copy).

This game deserves to be published.
