      1. Hello there Marc

        I would like to ask you if it is possible for you to help spread the word about my latest Kickstarter boardgame-project Canopy Walk?
        Thank you so much if you want to just share the information on your side of the ocean, as I have no contacts whatsoever in Malaysia to make this go round.
        So thank you for maybe forwarding the info or sending it to your friends or maybe passing the word otherwise.
        Hopefully I can find enough backers and I would really, really appreciate if you could help a bit

        kind regards

      1. Hi Thomas,

        Not the kind of game that I review I’m afraid but I have seen it before. Looks like a nice game for those who like abstracts.

        I will add your link to the publisher list.


  1. I would like to get Mayfair Games on your list and put you on our press release list. Please send me your email address and I will get you hooked up.


  2. Hi, we are a new publishing/manufacturing company based in Norfolk and launch our new game WICKED WICKETS at Essen Spiel 2010 hall 4 stand 230. Our new (working) website should be live next week with more information about us.
    We are really keen to support the UK games scene and hope you can include us on your publisher page.

    Pleas feel free to contact me for any additional information.

    All the best

  3. Hi
    If Possible could you please add Spiral Galaxy Games to your list of UK publishers.
    We have co-published 2 games Brief History of the World and Canal Mania, and are currently printing are first card game to be published entirely by ourselves called Braggart – this should reach the UK shops this November.

  4. Hi Rivcoach,
    I was wondering if you could add Go Ah Ah Play Games to your Board Game Publishers blog. We are another independent games publisher not listed above. As well as developing our own games, we also seek independent Board and Card Game Inventors and Designers to offer a Drop Ship service on our site. I have just released Toxin Drop – The Detoxification, Activation and Ascension board game. This is a brand new first edition game produced by Go An Ah Play Games that arrived December 2010.
    You will notice on my website that I also have Pocketfit, which is made in the UK
    Martial World from Ohio, USA
    and YOUR MAT from Australia
    It is wonderful to see so many inventors of board and card games actively producing such an array of entertaining and educational games.
    Your blog is a wonderful resource bringing these independents together.
    Well done. it’s great to see.
    Kind Regards

  5. Thank you Mark,
    I have added a link to your blog on my blog roll to send you some visitors.
    I am wondering, are you a game designer yourself? I clicked on ABOUT in your menu, but it didn’t say.
    I look forward to keeping in contact in the future.
    Kind Regards

  6. Good afternoon – My I have found this blog very comprehensive and only have so long to go through it – I will have to dedicate some time to viewing some of the games you are featuring. I wanted to drop a line as we are a newly incorporated gaming company intenting to bring our first game Empires Collide to the market in mid 2013. We have a kickstarter campaign scheduled to begin on 18th January, and are looking for people who would be prepared to test and review the game when it is completed. If you get time perhaps you could check out our blog

    Kindest Regards,

    the Weaver Team

    1. Thanks for getting in touch. I’m very happy for you to publish any press releases, particularly as you are a British company! Empires Collide does look like a game I would enjoy reviewing. I’d like to see the rules first though to get a sense of how long it takes, how complex to see if it would be a game I could get to the table with my game group.

      1. Thanks for getting back to us so quickly. We will shortly be publishing the full rules on our blog, and at that time I will write to you to let you know so you can assess if our game is suitable for you and your group to test.

        Kindest regards

  7. Hi
    We are a UK board game publisher, probably not on your radar as we make our games as unique pieces of art so when they are not being played you can hang them on the wall. We started out revising classic centuries old games but have added our own inventions to the collection. We also design and produce low volume so great for any one who needs a one off special or a prototype.

    I hope you want to blog about us at some point – also will be at Essen this year – we don’t go every year.

    We recently re launced our website and getting into the social media side of things so all comments and feedback are gratefully received.

  8. Hi

    Thanks for your interest. One of our latest games is called Raani – it is a fun tactical game. It is a game that can be played at two levels – the second level being more complex than the first. The other new release for this year is Square Route – a great family game – children like it because they can stitch their dads up. You can follow this link to see more

  9. Hi
    I came across your blog and got interested…i designed a board game, and am looking for a credible board game manufacturing company probably in Asia. I’ll be most grateful if you can assist. Thanks!

    1. Hello,

      Panda in China is pretty reputable from what I understand. Your best bet is to post a note on and you wil get recommendations posted to you.

      Best of luck.

  10. Hello Rivcoach,

    I’ve invented a board game which I have been working on for some time now, it is finished, it has been well play tested and has received a positive reaction and feedback, I would appreciate very much your honest opinion and advice on it, are we able to communicate in order for me to forward on information/pictures etc to you?

    Thank you and I look forward to hearing from you in due course.


      1. Thank you Rivcoach,

        Sorry for my delay, I’ll endeavour to send some info onto you as soon as I am able.

        Kind Regards
