Games Just For You



Are you a game designer or publisher? A comprehensive, understandable rule book is essential if you want your people to stick around and play your game. 

You might have already written your rule book. But it is difficult to look at the rules of your own game from the perspective of someone who has never played it, particularly if they have less experience of board gaming than you. I will help you make your rule book clear and concise. I will work to ensure consistency between the rule book and other sources of text such as playing cards or wording used on a game board.

As an editor with a fresh eye who also has many years of experience playing board games and explaining rules to other people, including children, my familiarity with the industry allows me to provide targeted copyediting services that cater specifically to your needs.
