I believe that the only way to see your idea implemented and actually (eventually) play that game is by telling it to the public (a youtube video, reddit, here). This way someone capable may be inspired and start developing, either alone(if it is a small 2d game) or with a team. You may or may not get credits from this...

If you want more than just play that game sometime, like making profit from your idea, you have to get some programming skills to write it yourself. This is difficult, and if you can't program right now, it will (and should) take years. Game design is a big thing sometimes huge to make do alone.

Extra Credits channel is great. I love it. Watch it whatever you decide to do!

Write down every idea for the game, put it on the shelf, and start with something less ambitious. Come back to it when you've finished another project or two

Without anything to add besides an idea you won't get very far having someone else develop for you. You need to understand some of the hurdles and challenges at the very least before pros will want to work with you.

Depending on how much programming/scripting you've done in the past (with any language) there are several options for getting started. Check the Software section on Steam. There are a number of options ranging in cost and complexity. RPG Maker is probably the easiest for a beginner but also pretty limited in scope.

If you're willing to get your hands dirty you can check out the Unity engine. You can make all sorts of games in it and there is a (slightly limited) free license but you will be doing some scripting. There are also plenty of resources for learning it and utilities that make it easier or enhance the feature set.

Check out Extra Credits and at the very least watch all the videos discussing game development (there's a playlist partway down), but I would recommend watching them all from the beginning. This is an excellent series that's very informative as well as being very good at getting you thinking about aspects of game design you might not consider as a beginner.

You could write a synopsis and try to get a games manufacturer interested, You could employ someone to write the software and distribute it your self, You could hone some programming skills and write it yourself.

OR

You could turn the idea into a story and publish it as an Ebook.

Yours and everyone else who is programming a game. Kickstarter is full of game ideas looking to get funded. If you want it made you'll have to do it yourself.
