PAX Stuff 

@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

@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 πŸ˜€

@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!

For everyone going to PaxU, share what prototypes you will be bringing so we can get a preview of all the games(especially if you will be at Unpub) !

I like the to a publishing company to be named Penultimate Games that only publishes short games you play before the big game of the night but are still thinky to warm you up.


Pictured: 5 start Etsy review for my Meeple Earrings: "Superb service and packaging. The earrings are perfect. Great shop!"

I got my 2nd check in the mail for game development work! If anyone is looking for development work for a card game, I'm looking for work.

@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.

Can I no longer send invites to Mastodon? I do not see it anymore

I'm making a creepy/evil Xmas card game. Look at these poor but bad children being taken away. Buwahaha

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 πŸ™‚

Anyone else scribble down 4 pages of notes for a new complete game then never ever return to it?

Tony Tran boosted notes:
* 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

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?
