@Gamefreakgeek Yeah! You play as suitors looking for different things in a partner, and you mail letters to each other that share some of your qualities and vulnerabilities. It's semi-cooperative because multiple people can win through marriage or independence, but there's also one sided marriages. I've been calling it a courtship game of deduction and catfishing.
Space Biff actually wrote an article about it recently!
@tonytran thanks, Tony
I will have a table in Unpub Fri and Sat afternoons. Am bringing:
ContraBanter, a word smuggling party game
Mock Trial, a satirical trick-taker/lawyer rpg
Please stop by and say hi! Looking forward to meeting new people and trying all your games 😀
@tonytran I'm bringing to PAX:
Persuasion, my Victorian courtship game.
Unraveled, my 1 vs many evidence analysis game.
Opacity, my "legacy trick taking" game about representation.
Conviction, my couple's quarrel deck builder.
I have 2 blocks at Unpub and I think I may focus on Unraveled, but I'm not sure, maybe Opacity since I don't usually have such a long time for testing. Maybe Unraveled one day then Opacity the next.
I'm tempted to bring a print and play of VelociRapture.
@tonytran I'll be bringing Roux Mates with a few new changes implemented! Images and details in the pinned post below!
@tonytran The admin of Tabletop Social has temporarily paused invites while they figure out how to effectively moderate this space and handle the massive influx of new people.
PAX U Paid Booth Work Opportunity
Is anyone I know here looking for work at PAX U?
I know two publishers who are looking for booth workers to demo their games. They pay well, include a free badge, and may be able to offer lodging.
Hit me up if you are interested or if you know someone trustworthy who is!
@tonytran If you've been working on a game for a while, I recommend trying a major change that you think probably won't work.
Shake things up! Learn more about your game!
And there's always the outside possibility that it'll lead to something even greater 🙂
* 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 https://tabletoppublishers.com.
The people on the bird site were aghast that we thought it cool these LED dance poles were powered by Raspberry Pi.
We got in a lot of trouble. It was most unexcellent.
Are Pi-powered poles cool here?
