First thing would be to go to http://wine-devel.org/site/forums and subscribe to
the wine devel mailing list.  There you can talk with all of the developers
themselves.  Then just ask if someone can take a look at the bug.  Basically, if
the game worked before, and it isnt working now, you can do a cvs regression
test to try and find the patch that caused the game to start crashing, but since
you said you are new, it probably did not work before.  Once you subscribe, I
will send you an email tomorrow evening to try and get some more information. 
For now, if you know that the game developer has a demo version of the game
available for download, please post a link to that here, and one of the
developers can at least try to run that.  If that runs, then this confirms that
it is most likely a copy protection issue.  If not, they will ask you to run
wine with certain command line args that might possibly help find the function
that is causing the crash.  Either way, a good place to get started is the wine
FAQ's, especially ones related to development, testing, and contributing to the
wine project, as they give you the general guidelines for posting to the
different mailing lists, should you decide to make a patch.  Another place to
look if you arent too familiar with linux is google.  Try googling cvs commands
and diff commands to get a feel for how the patching system works, and how to
get the most up to the minute copy of wine.  If you can't find anything there,
just ask and someone can give you exact command lines to do the same..
