The human race, to which so many of my readers belong, has been playing at children's games from the beginning, and will probably do it till the end, which is a nuisance for the few people who grow up. - GKC

I am the co-designer, publisher and manufacturer for Uncle Chestnut's Table Gype.

The game has won the Mensa Mind Games competition and was nominated for Best Abstract by both GAMES Magazine and BGG's Gold Geek awards, plus good reviews from Tom Vassel, among others.

I'm sending a good number to Europe, as well as Australia and an online retailer says we're big in Japan. Or at least, he's sending a bunch over there. However, shipping and customs, not to mention differing certification standards (e.g., CE in Europe) are barriers.

I am trying to find an interested publisher to license the game for the European and other foreign (that is, non-U.S) markets but so far all of the ones I have queried say they don't publish abstracts. Who does?

Among the big European publishers, there are HUCH! & friends and Gigamic. KOSMOS and Winning Moves have published a few abstracts too. Further there are some verry small publishers like intellego holzspiele, most of them focusing on wooden games.
Another international publisher of abstracts is Pin International.

Gigamic, Jactalea and SMART have good distribution channels for abstract games in Europe. In addition to being where you buy eurogames, they tend to have a presence in museum shops and the kind of toy stores that focus on the educational.
