comment Discouraging link to Lulu or CreateSpace
Personally, I believe that people will find any book that is advertised through AdWords and purchased through PayPal to be "non-professional", but that's just me. If you're truly intent on self-publishing, you should really use Kindle Direct Publishing and/or Nook Publishing because that's where the vast majority of the e-book readers will be going to look for books.

comment Unofficial Fan Fictions - How can I Secure Them?
Dale Emery is absolutely correct in his answer when he states that the discontinuation of the board game does NOT forfeit the copyright. Any use of the characters, settings, or other portions of the board game in your writing could cause it to be considered as a derivative work, which would violate their copyright and could possibly put you in jeopardy of being sued. You need to thoroughly research the copyright AND trademarks for the board game before attempting to publish anything.

comment Poor man's copyright techniques
It is true that a copyright notice is not required. I simply stated that because I assumed the OP was looking for some means to stake an "official" claim to his copyright, and posting a copyright notice is the easiest way to do so.
