Are you looking for help with your rulebook or components? Whether it is a quick run-through as an extra pair of eyes, or a more thorough reorganizaion/rewrite, I can help.

I work on game design as my hobby and have written and edited a number of rulebooks already. I have over a decade of professional, technical writing experience and do creative writing on the side. I'm also an avid gamer and collector, and I have read over 300 rulebooks from successfully published final products.

We already have a number of satisfied clients, and have recently made the move into game development in addition to editing.

If you would like help with your game, please send me a PM through boardgamegeek, or email me directly at GreyDolphinGames@gmail.com

You can visit our website to see our samples and testimonials at https://greydolphingames.com/

Re: Looking for an Editor?
Eric: Thanks so much for your excellent edits!

You have made great improvements in my game already. I look forward to seeing what the second round of edits look like

Re: Editor and Writer for Tabletop Games
I took Eric up on his offer of reviewing the rules for my game NYX. A few days after sending off the rules, I received a document with mark-ups and comments. What is most notable about the suggested edits presented by Eric was that this wasn't just a cursory grammar and spelling check. Certainly, typos and such were pointed out, but more importantly, Eric's detailed review looked at both the presentation and logic of the rule book. For example, his suggestion to simply re-order the presentation of some content significantly improved the logical flow, and thus, the understanding of the rules.

I strongly recommend contacting Eric about reviewing your rules.

For the curious, I will upload the rules and a PNP version of my game here.

Re: Editor and Writer for Tabletop Games
I just finished my current game's rulebook but I might have to reach out in the future for our other games. I have yet to find a perfect rulebook editor. I've found good quality editors, but not always with timelines that work for my business.
