Hi all

I'm new to this site and have joined initially to promote Dixonary - it's a version of Balderdash that's been played online for more than 25 years and we're looking for new players.

Am I OK jumping right into forums and letting people know about it? I had a look at the Balderdash page and there's been no discussion for several years - will anyone see my msg if I post there?

Are there any particular places I should post?

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated for this newbie.

For anyone who's interested, more info about the game here:

Welcome to BGG!

I'm sorry, but this is a commercial site. To promote your game you have to advertise it, but the rates are pretty cheap. Please contact adrates@boardgamegeek.com

Linking your game for promotional purposes is not allowed. This thread may get moved to Press Releases.

Hi Walt - thanks for your help.

So this is what I'd need to do, even though this is not a commercial game - just a bunch of people wanting to keep this game going.

If you just want to say, "We use this variant set of rules for Balderdash," you're free to post the rules in the Variants forum of the game. However, if you want to direct people away from BGG to another site, you must advertise. For advertisement, use adrates@boardgamegeek.com or if you think this is somehow going to benefit BGG or falls within the Terms of Service (very bottom of every page), you can talk it over with an Administrator. Liam can probably help you:

Thanks - I'll check this out.

I've also seen a forum called PBEM - play by email, which appears to have links to outside sites.

I would talk it over with Liam. If he doesn't know the answer, he'll be able to tell you where to get it.

(I think one question is going to be whether your site has ads.)
