Revisions

After reviewing the first copies to come off press, I have made some corrections to the layout of this book. The newest version on lulu is the same size, but is easier to read and has some corrected text.

Nothing major, but I feel better having made these changes.

George's Children Demonstration Report and Updates

I ran two more demonstrations of George's Children (at Kubla Con) this passed weekend.

One good. One okay.

The good one was amazingly strong. Overtly dark. Emotional. Important. Great game. Everyone involved (Mark, John, John, and Amanda) really got into the environment and worried less about the "crunch" of the rules.

The second group was fun. No doubt. But I had trouble translating ideas into abstract rules. That's mostly my fault. I usually get a little lazy running the game after having such an amazing time with it. A few people really got how the rules worked and how dark the game was.

Davi and Alex were great players. In fact, everyone was great, in a vaccuum. But it is -- admitedlly -- a difficult game to pull strangers together to play. And when a couple of strangers know each other, they can easily fall into routines. Couple with that my expectations and the fact that I wasn't playing... only observing and guiding... and you have a recipe very different from the first session.

But, everyone had a good time and the game was very different from previous sessions. So I'm happy.

One player promised to buy a copy and another one did.

And I got some great advice out of it.

We've now brought in over $200 in donations as well, in just under a month, and I presume that within a few weeks, we'll have even more purchases -- unless people lied.

So. I want to thank everyone that purchased a book.

You rock.

Look for more updates this week.

George's Children Demo

I will be running a demo of George's Children at Kubla Con this weekend. Anyone interesting in playing, should come out to the con and sign up.

I will also have five copies available for sale at the show.

All proceeds still go to charity.

George's Children Update

We have made almost $200 for charity so far. Which is great, but we'd like to see more people playing this game.

I know this takes time, but tell your friends about George's Children.

Thanks
