Revolution! Reviews

Just the other day I was thinking how nice it would be to have my game added to Bruno Faidutti's famed Ideal Game Library. Today, I found it there! He is mainly positive, preferring the "bid refunds" optional rule to moderate the widely perceived run-away leader problem. Once again, I am very glad I argued for the inclusion of this very rule, and I am thankful that SJG listened.

Revolution! also got a positive review from Sam Healey (sometimes co-host of The Dice Tower with Tom Vassel). He mentioned to me that Revolution will be featured on the podcast in an up-coming episode.


  1. Great news. And some positive discussion in response to that review.

    I pushed Tom to play it at Origins. He didn't, but I did play it with Eric Summerer.

  2. Thanks. I think Will from SJG got Tom to play towards the end of the con up in the board game room.

    There sure seem to be a lot of comments about Revolution! being a big deal for SJG's image. We'll see if it keeps up!

  3. We at strongly believe in necessity of chess to increase both knowledge and understanding. It is unfortunate that the oldest game in the world (Chess) has a very little fan base, aims to change that. We understand the importance of blogs and the information made available on them. We are working towards building a strong fan base around our FREE chess server to better increase the use of Chess online. Your blog seems to have a large viewing public and seems to hold great information which I would love to make available to my viewing public.
