Hi, I invented a game that's mathematically interesting, but doesn't seem to be of much interest to the general board game fandom. Are there any types of publications out there I can submit my game to that are more geared towards the mathematics/theory of games so it can find its audience? I know there was that "Mathematical Games" column in Scientific American along time ago, which would have been perfect, but it's not running any more.

Thanks!

"Game & Puzzle Design is a peer-reviewed print journal publishing high quality work on all aspects of game and puzzle design. The journal aims to bring together designers and researchers from a variety of backgrounds, to foster a deeper understanding of games and facilitate the creation of new high quality games and puzzles. We are particularly interested in the intersection between traditional and digital game design, and the points at which these disciplines converge and diverge.

Submissions may pertain to any type of game or puzzle – abstract, physical, printed, digital, etc. – but should focus on underlying mechanics or gameplay rather than visual design. The emphasis will be on traditional games and puzzles, although submissions on digital games (other than major AAA video games) are also welcome, especially where links are drawn between traditional and digital design approaches."

BTW if by "find its audience" you simply mean getting it played by people who would enjoy playing it, then it seems like your best bet is to web-publish its rules with print-and-play elements (if it doesn't use standard/usual bits) and announce it in various abstract game forums and newsgroups. But I don't know; it seems hard for a new game, especially a new abstract strategy game, to gain traction!

I've been asking this for a while now. Shipping makes purchasing prohibitive to me.

Hi, I am the editor of the italian magazine "Il fogliaccio degli astratti" dedicated to abstract and board games, free on tavolando.net.

I can write an article on your game in a next issue.

If you are interested write me.

ciao

Luca
