Title: Misery Bubblegum: My New Game
Post by: TonyLB on August 05, 2009, 07:11:03 AM
So, some folks know that I've been working over three years now on my next game.  It's called Misery Bubblegum (http://www.museoffire.com/Games/MiseryBubblegum/).  It's about sad, strong, vulnerable, glorious people trying to find acceptance and maybe even love.

It makes me cry when I play it, in a good way.

It's so small you can carry everything you need to play it in your pocket, so fast you can play a whole session from scratch in the time it'd take you to finish an average board-game, and so consistently awesome that it has converted player after player who joined up for con games just to humor me, despite thinking they loathed the genre.

It's finally being released, in about a week, at GenCon.

Figured I should give people a heads up.  Any questions?

Hey Tony,

Have you settled on a price?

And the game is your design, your artwork and coloring, and your layout? Is there anything about it you didn't do entirely yourself?

You know I'm gonna get this game. Where exactly will I be able to buy it?

$20!

Well ... I hired somebody to print the cards.

Indie Press Revolution ... either their booth at the convention or (once left-over stock goes back with them afterwards) the website.

I cannot wait to lay hands on this puppy.

Congrats on finishing it up, Tony.

Will you be at Gencon?  I'd like to see a demo (and maybe get you to sign something if I pick it up)

I will be at GenCon.  I will bring a deck to GoD, though it'll be along with a whole lot of other stuff I'm bringing too.  Still, I'm selfishly hoping to run a few games outside my scheduled slots.
