Designer/Publisher Speed Dating for Tabletop Games

Hi there! Welcome to PublisherSpeedDating.com. We organize designer / publisher speed dating events at tabletop gaming conventions such as Origins Game Fair and BGG.con, among others. Our goal is to help as many great games from independent designers find their way into the market as possible by giving designers opportunities to easily pitch their games and for publishers to easily search for games to publish. In addition to our speed dating events, we also maintain a searchable sell sheet database to help publishers who can't make it to all of our events still scope out the offerings and look for their next hit.

Applying to pitch is simple - just add your game to our database and then submit it for an upcoming event. The whole process generally takes less than five minutes. Our judges will rate every sell sheet on a scale of 1 to 10. The 16 sell sheets with the highest average rating will be selected for an event, and we usually do two events on different nights at each convention. Of course, every submitted sell sheet will be available to browse right here on PublisherSpeedDating.com!

Publishers, there's nothing you need to do if you want to attend speed dating except show up -- there's no fee and no registration whatsoever. You do not even need to create an account here to browse our sell sheet archive.

PublisherSpeedDating.com is provided by the Indie Game Alliance, an international guild of independent designers and publishers. Membership in IGA is great for helping you succeed whether you're a designer or a publisher, however, membership in IGA is not required to participate in speed dating, nor is it weighed in judging. To ensure that there is no bias toward members or non-members, IGA staff members are not permitted to be on the judging panel.
