Revolution in the Cincinnati Enquirer

I made the Cincinnati Enquirer today! This story turned out very well, as well as being accurate (always a plus). Now I'm off to buy copies of the paper for my friends and relatives . . .

Cincinnati Demo Dates

I just finished scheduling two Cincinnati demo opportunities:

September 8 (Tuesday) 6:00-10:00 at Yottaquest in Mt. Healthy.

September 10 (Thursday) 6:00-8:00 at Sci-Fi City in Northgate Mall.

I also just finished an interview with the Cincinnati Enquirer, so there might be a story in the paper this weekend. Maybe. :)

French Review

Tric Trac recently featured an in-depth look at Revolution. The bottom line is that they seem to think it's not too bad (in French that means "it's awesome!") and they really like my French-sounding name. The comments were also favorable. Get Google Translator and check it out.

Some Nice Pictures

I just stumbled onto a blog called Geek Game Night. I have added them to my blog roll. They have some amazing pictures over there as well as a nice, in-depth session report of Revolution. You should definitely check them out! Here is one more of their pictures:

Revolution in the Business Courier

Revolution made the online version of the Cincinnati Business Courier. The story is largely accurate, except for that $2/game part--it's really 2% (something like $0.80).

Back from GenCon

I just got back from my one-day-only trip to GenCon in Indianapolis. Here I am taking a break with the official Munchkin mascot (Randy is inside). I spent most of the day helping Will run demos of Revolution. They only brought about 100 copies to the con and had already sold 40 by the time I arrived. Today they sold nearly as many--only a few left for the remaining couple of days! They should be in stores next week if you missed out.

I also got to sign a few autographs ('cause I'm famous now--at least about six people think so)! Anyway, I had a blast meeting lots of different people and explaining the game to them. Almost everyone who played really seemed to like it. GenCon was packed, though I haven't been in a few years. Parking is $25 now! Yikes! Fortunately, SJG graciously reimbursed me.

And I got to (finally) meet Mr. Phil Reed himself. He seems like quite a nice guy with a head for the business side of things. He spent most of the day thinking up bold new visions for the future and talking to important people--time well spent. All in all, a productive and fun day!

Here are a few more pics:

Revolution! Is Now Shipping

The wait is over! SJG confirms that Revolution! is now shipping! In related news, I'll be heading over to Gen Con tomorrow to hang out at booth #1321. The SJG folks have snagged some prime demo space in the exhibit hall this year--something they haven't done in a while. Revolution! will also be available at the show, so maybe we'll get an early feel on how sales are going. Check back in a couple of days for a full report and lots of pictures!

Revolution Reviews

Here are some reviews (or links to some reviews). Also, the pallets have arrived safely in the warehouse and distribution should start today. Things will be in full swing by GenCon!
