So, after numerous tests, rule changes and much brain hurt, Osu Dice! is finally ready to be released into the wild forests of Amazon, also known as publishing houses.


Question is:
Does anyone have any contacts of some small publishing houses that are looking for abstract strategy games? Maybe someone who had some experience with similar publishing companies?
Since I'm unknown, have no games behind me, nor any fancy portfolio, what are my best options? USA, England? I don't speak any other language, and even my English is not really good.
My rule-book is a mess because of that... blush
Some patron to lead me through the rough waters of publishing would be much appreciated.


Btw, game in question is posted here:http://boardgamegeek.com/article/23850061#23850061
And these are the final rules: https://www.dropbox.com/s/75sh9zkzhuxyykc/osu-dice_rulebook....

I've already read that multiple times. But, here is not a question how, but to whom?

There isn't much publishing houses that accept abstract games, and if there are any I don't know who they are. So, the question is: who, here, has some experience with publishing houses that work with abstract games and where are they located, some contacts maybe, etc...

You're right, most don't. They just don't sell well in the hobby channel.

But there are a couple who do... for your answer you'll have to do your own homework and research some modern abstracts by modern companies. BGG is a great site to do that on.
