Suppose I have what I think is a great idea for a new Settlers expansion. (Like 5,000 other people, no doubt!)
What would be the most effective way to realize this possibility? Write to the makers and outline the idea? Pitch it like a novel manuscript?
Or do such things not get publicly sourced? If I want to play it, is my best bet just to make my own set for use by friends and family?
This question doesn't have to be about Settlers; it can be read as being about any game in the market. There are so many editions & flavours of all the most popular games, and I guess the core question is: Are they all generated internally or could a community member propose one?
