As a new publisher, Side Room Games is looking to get new designs out to the community. If you have a design you’ve been working on that’s ready to make the leap we’d love to hear about it.

We’re interested in a wide variety of game themes, mechanics, playtimes, player counts and weights. In general we prefer smaller sized games since those are easier to produce and get out to our customers. But if the design is right for us we’d love to work on it!

We also want games that the designer feels are “finished”. By that we mean the rules are complete and the components are defined. The graphic design and artwork should be functional enough that players get the ideas and emotions that the designer was aiming for. Finally, the design should be well playtested, including “blind” playtesting where new players test the game with only the rules and components to guide them.

If you think your design is ready to go, send us an email with a brief description of the game. This should include the player count, estimated play time, component list, theme, and core mechanics. Also, why do you think this game should be published? Innovative theme? Amazing new combo of mechanics? Tell us why your game should be our highest priority!

Within a week you’ll hear back from us and, if we’re interested we’ll want to see a video of the game in play. From there we can discuss getting a copy of the rules and potentially a prototype to try out.

Send us an email at and let us know about your game!
