My Prepping to Publish Happy Dance

I've been playing around with a game that I designed while waiting for the power to come back on after Hurricane Katrina. It's a fun, light, fast-paced card game that had received positive reviews from those I could get to play it ("Let's play it again" and "Don't forget to bring..." comments mostly). Unfortunately, I've always been an unambitious person, so the idea of trying to sell my idea to some company or agent seemed like too much work. So I hear about The Game Crafter, and I think, "Ok, I can publish my game in this format. Game publication for the unambitious." I finish. I order a copy so that I can hold a professionally produced (except for my art... had to do that myself) copy of a game I designed.

It arrived in the mail today, and all of the feelings I thought I'd feel were there. Excitement. Pride. Six-year-old-at-Christmas giddiness. But I was startled (and a little amused) at what my first thought was upon receiving it.

"Think of the GeekGold I can get uploading pictures of this baby into the database!"

Congratulations.

Greed? No. Not greed. You will earn that GG.

However, you could use your ill-gotten gains to provide GeekGold tips to new BGG users.

I actually have enough for an Uberbadge now, so I'll probably buy that (once I get the motivation), and then start a-donating to newbie geek charity.

As for which game it is, I haven't uploaded it. Remember that whole unambitious thing?

I need more exposure as it is getting burried by other lists. It isnt as popular as I would have thought but I want to do atleast 1 draw.

Nothing wrong with that... as long as you don't upload hundreds of individual pictures of every single card and component.

Of course not. I'd be infringing on my own copyrights.
