After eighteen months of strenuously making games by hand I'm moving into professionally manufactured games. I've got one in the pipeline, and a possible second, but I need more games to publish.

I'm looking for excellent medium or light-medium weight games with a fun theme, to publish late this year, early next year.

If your game fits the bill, please send me an email (jack (at) reivergames (dot) co (dot) uk) including a brief description of the theme and major mechanics. If it sounds interesting I'll ask for a copy of the rules, and if I still like it I'll ask for a prototype.

In other news, I've still got some copies of It's Alive! left - possibly Reiver Games' last hand made limited edition!

Thanks for your time

Jack

If I could get access to a copy of Border Reivers, I'd certainly be interested in buying it... I hope that will be back in the pipeline someday!

Hiya Dylan,

No plans to do another edition of Border Reivers yet, but I might do a bit later on. Watch this space!

Cheers,

Jack

I've got a pair of games that I'd love to see published someday. One's a Beer-n-pretzels card game Ferrball's Mansion, the other is a Fluxx-like tile game Wanderlust. Both are relatively light and should be cheap to produce. If you'd like, I can email you the prototype PDF so you can try it out first.

Hiya Ryan,

Please could you email me a couple of paragraphs explaining the theme and major mechanics for Ferrball's Mansion (to the email address in the OP) and I'll take it from there.

Cheers,

Jack

Funny someone has to FIND a game instead of so many WITH games looking for publishers.

Good luck.

I'm hoping that I can connect with some of those WITH games to get them published. I'm small and few people have heard of me, so I need to shout every now and again to attract attention.

Cheers,

Jack

Wade,

You ever thought of having Adobe, Stone, and Steel published via CaptainJax?

While they are not my games Island Trader seems to have been popular enough that 2 seperate people on the geek are doing graphic redesigns of the game.

Also Kingdom of Heroes sounds interesting and may be worth checking out a prototype.

I know there was a popular Zombie game up on PnP that was going to be published but fell through. I cant think of the name of it now.

Hiya all,

Thanks to everyone for your submissions - I've received about forty in total. I'll go through them next week and get back to you all individually.

Cheers,
