I am just curious when you attempt to get an approved listing on here. We are in the beta phase and have been testing a lot, and would to love the plays.

Thanks as always to the best group of geeks out there!

Silly Todd. Games are never done; they're merely abandoned.

Does that require a translation service? Perhaps to translate the game to almost Finnish. whistle

mainly i agree with BGG. the game should be complete, designed and playtested. there are always improvements to be made, as with most games, especially when we first are learning to be game designers.

The rule came about in part because there was a tendency of Game Design contests to end up with incomplete WIPs listed in the BGG. Theres quite a few out there before the rules were in place.

The question: When do you submit for a BGG game entry on a game you designed?

My Answer: Never. I would let the publisher design and submit the entry.

When it becomes conceivable that someone you've never met and has never heard of your game might nevertheless become interested in it and be able to obtain it.

Aw... That would deprive us of some amazing Print and Play games.

Likewise, except that now and then players submit my games. I don't mind, but I discourage it. This thread lists some of my thoughts on the area: Should this game listing exist? (prototype game)

I see BGG largely as an encyclopaedic resource to find out about games. So my main criterion for adding an entry would be "are people in general possibly going to want to find out more about this game?" - if the answer is yes, then it should probably have an entry.

To my mind, to fit this criteria a game should be a) a complete, coherent game (there should be a game to find out about!), and b) not going to change significantly in the near future (so they find out actual information, not hype and speculation).

This probably means "after playtesting is more or less complete and the design is locked to any major changes", really.

For Print and Play games, I would add c) the game should be available to players in its final form, one way or another - because by "people in general" I mean "people who aren't watching your work in progress thread"; people who heard mention of it from a friend, people who saw it in a mail-order catalogue, people who are looking for another game of type X to buy and are browsing the categories... that kind of people in general.
