The Unpublished Games Network, also known as Unpub, is an organization that helps aspiring game designers establish contacts in the industry, have their games play-tested, and hone their craft to reach the dream of having their game published. Unpub does all this through an annual Unpublished Games Festival, presence at major conventions (PAX East, Origins, GenCon, and BGG.Con), and with the Unpub Mini Program’s partnerships with friendly local game stores. The Unpub.net website contains hundreds of designer-posted games and houses even more electronic feedback forms for all listed designs.
In the past 6 years, Unpub has moved from a small community meeting hall in Dover, Delaware to a 14,000+ sq. ft. space in the Baltimore Convention Center. On March 18, 2016, we will host our seventh annual Unpublished Games Festival (Unpub 7) at the Baltimore Convention Center in Baltimore, Maryland. With over 90 game designers, more vendors, and more platesetters we are estimating a public attendance of over 2,000 people- that is TWICE last year’s attendance! This is an exciting time of growth for Unpub and one in which we hope you can be a part.
