I have been recently looking for a possible board game contests to submit my game, "3 Tours Of War." However it is November and most conventions that hold these types of game submissions are all but done for the year.
I have found 3 possible conventions for the upcoming year that I might want to enter:
http://www.gamesconmemphis.com/ --> Oct. 2011
http://www.fallcon.com/ --> Oct --> 2011
http://www.saltcon.com/ --> Feb 2011
Submission fees are all pretty reasonable, but unfortunately none of these conventions are in California which would cost a lot of $$$ to travel to :-(
Being low on funds (due to cut-back hours @ work), is keeping me from being set on attending and submitting my work. I am however keeping my chin up on finding a contest here in California :-)
So if anyone hears anything about a gaming submission contest, please drop us a line and let us know!
