The Game Crafter: Create and Publish Your Own Card/Board Game
The Game Crafter is a place where you can publish your very own card game or board game. If you have a great idea for a game, you can start your creation process by downloading their free templates for the design.
There’s a community forum where you can consult experts about your creation. You can also join in the conversation and make your own suggestions. This will enable you to share your thoughts as well as get feedback from others to make your game even better.
You can use the cost estimator to calculate the least cost of your game. This will allow you to set your price properly when you publish it on the online shop. Watch the video below to get a glimpse of how the cost estimator works.
After you’ve created your game components, you can upload your game using our simple wizard-based interface. They will provide you with all the pawns, dice, play money, and other game parts you need to flesh out your game. Their software will automatically adjust your images for you if you don’t upload the correct sizes. However, your images may not look as you intended them to.
After uploading your game, The Game Crafter will tell you exactly how much it costs to manufacture that game. You can buy copies at that price, but you can also set a price that visitors should pay. You and TGC get split the profit of each sale 50/50, and you get a royalty payment at the end of each month.
At TGC, you can start selling your game with only the push of a button. There are no up-front fees, no contractural obligations, no distributors, and you don’t need a big publisher to decide your game will sell 10,000 units in the first year.
