I notice that most of the lists of game publishers accepting submissions, are somewhat out of date. With new publishing companies coming out every year, I was thinking it may be time to update the list that was made back in 2008. So if you know of any, big or small, post them bellow.
Thanks
Zach

I represent one of the publishers looking for submissions (see our submission guidelines).

I tried setting up a Geeklist near the end of last year and posted it around but didn't gain much traction in terms of getting others to add to the list. I didn't give it too much attention but do feel a more comprehensive list of publishers looking for submissions and an overview of their submission guidelines would be a great benefit for designers to see.

In fact, a new social network, Tabletop Generation, is just now entering its Beta that is aiming to facilitate this. I have high hopes for this to be a great platform that, as they say, will "facilitate collaboration, and connect players worldwide".

Which list(s) in particular are you referring to?

There is a list at the bottom of this blog post... while accurate, it's certainly missing the many new publishers that have popped up cause of Kickstarter.

I've got a Google Spreadsheet with publishers including data on what kind of games they are and aren't interested in.

You can view the spreadsheet here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1JtXSb77QLDPDFFV3nuYb...

And you can use this form to add more publishers to the list: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1-wuSJ7VRrbY5HEct9sfhQCYUJJu...

The spreadsheet can be edited if you see any information that should be updated.

The info is an aggregate of everything I could find on BGG, BGDF, James Mathe's site and from talking to publishers on my own.

This looks great, Aerjen! I'll add some of my contacts as soon as possible.
Might I suggest a field for "Location" or "Country" the publisher is operating from?

My goal with the list is to help as many designers as possible, so that would be great! Thanks James.
