Having created a game and had it accepted, I can't find out how to upload the rules. I tried on one game and the image was rejected "No rules" - I assume that meant I shouldn't upload any rules. I also saw a note in a post that upload references should not be put into a game. I uploaded all the cards as images into the gallery but the rules are an essential part of the game. Have I missed something?

My advice (fwiw) is upload the rules in the Files section, not as an image. Go to the game page, then scroll down to the "Files" section, and click "Upload File", and follow the directions. Probably far better to upload a PDF than a JPG/PNG, but I'm sure you'll work it out from there.

And it's probably best to zip up the images of the cards into one file and upload it to the Files section as well.

"Rule Scans : Unless you have express written consent of the copyright holder, scans of rulebooks are not allowed."

Since you are the copyright holder this should be allowed, but you will have to submit with a comment on the file that you are the author of the rules.

(PS: Please, use ALL CAPS only for extreme emphasis, extremely rarely. Since CAPS are used by spammers, it makes a bad impression.)

Thanks - that will save me a lot of time. If I copy my rules to pdf, can I put that in the same zip?
