Tabletop Generation is a great place for designers, testers, reviewers, artists, publishers and just about anyone else in the board gaming hobby/industry as well. They offer a great way to advertise and publish your ideas and workings of any board game you may be working on or interested in checking out.
Of the many features of the site, one of my favorites is how you can create a following for your projects. It allows people who are interested to follow specific games/projects that they like. Now, I don't have to tell you that this, in and of itself is a VERY valuable tool. It allows any player or designer or well, ANYONE to stay in contact with the various projects going. It's also a wonderful website for more reasons than just that.
In general, there are a host of different resource options, Heck, you can even find different groups, local or otherwise, game stores and much much more.
The best part? It's ALL FREE! That's right, FREE. Not free.99 but 100% free to use in whichever way you see fit. So be sure to check them out. Even if designing is not your thing, It's an awesome growing community as well as a way to find great new games that may not be out just yet. :)
As Always, Thank you for reading! :)
