Interested in releasing your game, but unsure where to start? Step one (after creating a prototype of the game) should be to get your friends together and have them give it a shot.
Done with kind feedback from those who most love you? Send your design to a more critical eye by requesting play testers either through a local gaming group, a listing like r/TabletopDesign’s playtesters‘ page, or the big try: a convention.
Here are some other resources!
- wikiHow truly has everything! Check out their basic guide to outlining your roleplaying game.
- Use an online calculator to figure out how much your game should cost. Things to take into account are provided resources like rule manuals, character or tally sheets, and counters or playing pieces.
- While not applicable to roleplaying games, the Cardboard Edisons provide feedback and awards to well designed board games that are not yet publicly available.
- Once you’re ready to start vending, read Mark Monlux’s comic on having a vendor’s table at a convention.
