* It's all updated for PAX Unplugged - sort / search / filter by the con as you like.
* The backend now runs on the same server as the website, and not on a third-party service. New tech on the back end means a faster / stabler service that's better set up for the long term.

(ICYMI: If you're a game designer trying to pitch your games to publishers, this service is here to help you pitch your games better. Think 'sniper', not 'shotgun'. See

Great real world last night - printed off the first version of Carolina (a poker-like game more about outwitting than bluffing) and Taco (gateway card game about drafting ingredients and making tacos). Great to finally get to some new games =)

I'm making a list of potential reviewers for a game we've recently Kickstarted (with 2,000+ backers!). Naturally, many of them are in English, but the translators and I worked hard to ensure there would be a ton of languages available: Chinese, Croatian, Czech, Danish, Dutch, French, German, Greek, Hebrew, Hindi, Hungarian, Indonesian, Italian, Polish, Portuguese, Spanish, and Swedish.

If you review in one of these languages, I'd love to send you a game. See for details =)

First tweets are... wait, *tweets*? *Posts*? Ahh, 'toots'. Yeah, not gonna use toots, sorry.
