Getting Carded

While contemplating
a few things concerning a collectible card game idea I've been kicking around for awhile now, I stumbled upon a couple good resources.

Sloperama has a lot of information dealing directly with video game development but also a lot of stuff about getting board games made. He never minces words and pretty much tells the whole horrible truth -- to sum up: the odds of getting your game idea made (unless you do 100 percent of the work and put up 100 percent of the funding) are approximately 0%, with maybe a .00001% margin of error.

While I'm not really fond of them apples, they are the only ones available.

The Warlord CCG site, while not a property I'm familiar with, has a good set of online diaries that discuss specific aspects of producing a whole bunch of cards that interact in amusing and challenging ways.
