Default Board Game Designer?

Is there anywhere that takes submissions on board games still? I've got a strategy game I've created and was just curious if I'll have to market it myself or am able to pass it to someone and just lose a cut! Thanks!

IIRC, there is a convention in Germany for board games and I think there may be a few in the US or related industries that you can go to and try to get some exposure. Maybe ToyCon or ComicCon depending on the nature of game.

Tom Sloper had an article about this, and I know Brenda Brathwaite also has several awesome posts about board games. In addition to the board game con, there are oodles of toy cons.

How easy or hard do you guys think it maybe to make a transition from a board game or CCG designer/artist to the game industry?

I think that's an interesting angle.

Default Make it Mobile

There's a huge demand for mobile games right now. You might have an easier time selling your concept to a mobile game developer than finding a company that can produce a physical boardgame. VAST Studios and Cerebral Vortex Games are two that I can think of.
