Hi folks!

I've recently created a new board game publishing company called Gimme Games and was just wondering how many other Scottish publishers/designers are actually out there?

It might just be my naivety, but it feels like there's a distinct lack of them around.

If you do exist, please say hi!

Thanks,
Colin

The only one I know of is Fragor Games. I’m sure there must be others too.

There's also Inspiring Games (who are publishing Legends Untold and Lord of the Horde) and Mark McKinnon who is self-publishing Wreck and Ruin.

There is also Badcat Games, Digisprite and I have published a couple of games myself in the past. I also run the Edinburgh Playtest Group.

Don't know much about other publishers but if you're looking for a graphic designer (either contracted or freelance) then I have a friend I can put you in touch with who is very talented and has worked for a games developer before.

That Edinburgh Playtest Group is pretty amazing, you should check it out!

Also, hijacking this for a second, I've seen that you are launching another kickstarter soon and if you are interested I'd love for you to come along and show off your game in store some weekend/evening that suits.

That sounds great. Yeah, a demo night sounds like a lot of fun.

In a good way though! Looking forward to meeting you, might try and grab five minutes or something when we're both at GenCon!
