Board Game Publishing Economics–The Harsh Reality

Michael Mindes, owner of Tasty Minstrel Games, put up a fascinating post about the brutal economics of publishing board games. Although Michael is hopeful about the future, the numbers speak for themselves.  I found the post refreshing in both its honesty and detail. Far too many people I meet in the gaming industry, especially the aspiring publisher,  do not grasp the economics of board game publishing. Simply put, it is not cheap , in terms of time and money and this post bears that fact out very well.

One of the better posts on the subject I have read to date and definitely worth your time.
