Reiver Games published several board games over the past two years and was the full-time occupation of the company’s founder. It also ceased to exist as of June 6th, 2011. Reiver sadly joined a long list of game publishers that did not make it. Jack, the owner, kindly wrote a long post about what he did wrong so that others might learn from his mistakes. It is not suggested reading, it is literally mandatory reading for anyone considering diving in to the board game publishing market.
