Getting Your Game onto BGG

create board game

BoardGameGeek, a.k.a BGG, is the primary hub for board game information (second only to The Dice Tower of course), featuring a database with thousands upon thousands of games, publishers, designers, and more. As users, it’s easy to take for granted the process by which new items are added to BGG, but it’s more complex than you might think.

The folks over at This is the Front Games posted a comprehensive guide revealing the numerous steps they took to get their game Fiction or Diction added. It’s a fascinating read full of must-know information for any publisher or designer.

“The process is straightforward but, for a few reasons, surprisingly complicated. When I put Fiction or Diction up on Boardgamegeek it took almost a week to get everything done from start to finish. So these are the steps to putting your game up that I wish I had known.”

The guide has everything from creating designer and publisher pages to adding individual games and everything in between. Check out the blog post for all the details.
