I would suggest the Board Game Designers Forum (bgdf.com), and BoardGameGeeks.com. Also, I might mention it on the SuperDuperGames forums; SuperDuperGames does play-by-web games, but some people might be interested in an open, real-time system like Volity.

You might also want to crosspost this to the Geek list on Wunderland, since that might have more people interested in development (I'm not sure how much overlap there is between Geek and Something).

We've been occasionally posting about Volity. (Hopefully we don't sound like preaching morons. I'm putting this on the Something list because it's about our purposes, not Looney Labs purposes or Rabbit purposes -- although obviously we think there is mutual support to be had.)


We're currently in a "developer beta" mode: we want people to look at Volity, and think about developing games for the Volity system. (Currently that means "playable on the Net for free". We hope to eventually offer the ability to charge money or subscription fees for games, if that's the way you want to run them.)

Now, lots of game designers and programmers read this list, so this offer is open to you. Go for it! We're cool.

However, my actual question is: where should I be posting this announcement? I'm not on any serious game-design forums. (Except for the text adventure newsgroups, but that's a separate matter. Yes, I have a plan for that...) You folks are probably on more than me. What mailing lists, web forums, newsgroups, blogs, wikis, and so on would be interested in an open-source rapid-development platform for net board/card games?
