In this panel, we will be discussing how to pitch your game (board, card, or roleplaying game) to a publisher who you'd like to work with and what the various ways of publishing could look like. We will also be discussing the pros and cons of self-publishing, co-publishing, and signing with a publisher.

  • Sen (he/him) is constantly dreaming, even when he’s awake. He is passionate about helping other people lose track of time in ways that they find meaningful and looks forward to putting  interesting and engaging games on your table. Cutting his teeth on the board and card game side of the table co-designing titles like Belfort, Akrotiri, Junk Art, The Legend of Korra: Pro Bending Arena, Kingdom Rush: Rift in Time, Scooby-Doo: Escape from the Haunted Manor, MINDMGMT: The Psychic Espionage “Game”, and Rat Queens: To the Slaughter, Sen recently started to explore the RPG side of the table.
