New Release Date

My sources now tell me the game will be released at the beginning of 2009. I guess this sort of thing is to be expected. Still, I would rather they take the time to do it right rather than give it the rush treatment. It also looks like the rule changes are going to stick, but we can still play by the old rules if we want. All in all, SJG seems to be doing a serious job producing a great product.

Also, check out the forum action over at BGG! The SJG guys have been hitting the conventions and generating some positive buzz. And I'm being accused of shameless shilling. Some guy keeps whining about the fact that about four of my friends/relatives have rated my game a 10. His world is forever distorted by such underhanded trickery. Really, what did you expect from my parents? "Well, it's an okay game for your first professional release--6.4 seems about right." Give me a break!

Quick update: the BGG page now has over 1900 2000 hits and 21 ratings!


  1. I was sorry to see that shill discussion pop up on BGG. I think some people just have unreasonable expectations for the rating system. After all, it's a survey where participants are self selecting. All I ask is that participants give their honest opinions.

  2. It's probably hard to get one of those "Ratings Police" badges...
