How can I publish and protect my board game idea?


How do people usually approach publishing a board game? Is it better to start small or to approach a larger company to partner with? In either case, how can you protect the idea? (I have created one that is very popular with family and friends and am interested to take it further.)

In the United States, board games are covered under the classification CPC A63F. You should consult an IP attorney in order to determine precisely how your board game can in fact be protected by means of a US patent.
