After several iterations of the rules text have been built up and torn down again, the current incarnation of Corona will be on the slate for playtesting from 9am-11am on Saturday, November 8, 2014 at Metatopia (see the full convention schedule here). If you're going to be there, I'll be looking for intrepid players willing… Continue reading Corona returns to Metatopia
Metatopia continues to grow both in size and energy. The show was tremendously instructive, as usual, and I'm going to revise the priorities of many of the projects on my agenda currently to reflect the feedback received:During the first Ghosts of Atlantis session, I made a spontaneous change to the rules that went over smashingly,… Continue reading Post-Metatopia development schedule
Which is both a relief and a stressor, because it doesn't look like I'm going to be able to meet my self-imposed challenge. I'll have perhaps four games out of the experience (thanks to an idea I stumbled into a couple of days ago), which is half of what I had set out to do,… Continue reading October Challenge: one week until Metatopia!
I'll be running three sessions at Metatopia 2012 in just about two weeks' time. Corona, Delve, and Project Atlantis are on the slate. (If you don't know what those are, or want to know more, I've been blogging about them right here! Click on the respective tags to follow the threads.) Specific times will be… Continue reading Metatopia is approaching!
If this past few days has been any indication, Metatopia is going to be a big deal for gamers and game creators in short order. The quality of every session I either attended or ran was fantastic, and I met a number of excellent folks (and I'm not talking about just the famous ones). Resting… Continue reading Back from Metatopia
I'm preparing for my Friday demos in my hotel room in the lovely Hyatt in Morristown, NJ. Anybody who's around, come find me (tweet @houseofcardsrpg) during the show. Besides House of Cards demos, I have a focus group Friday 8pm-10pm for something new and intriguing. Come be a part!
The Metatopia event schedule is up, and I'm pleased to announce the open session on Saturday night (10pm to midnight) as well as a designer-only session Friday from 8 to 10. Anyone who wants to talk about the game, get a sneak preview, or even try it out, feel free to register now; I'm also… Continue reading House of Cards at Metatopia
The event schedule has been posted at the site. I wanted to point out that only the House of Cards sessions are listed publicly, but I am still running 30 Minutes to Live test sessions "off the menu" - anyone who wants to sit down and give it a whirl and help me hammer the… Continue reading Speaking of Metatopia:
I'll be participating in Metatopia, an upcoming game design festival in Morristown, New Jersey, this coming November. If you're in the neighborhood, you should come by. There's a lot of interesting stuff planned, both on my slate and with the other designers on the roster. Besides the last round of House of Cards playtesting, I'll… Continue reading Jersey Bound
