Title: Sign in Stranger at GenCon
Post by: Emily Care on August 11, 2009, 05:08:05 AM
I'll have copies of Sign in Stranger: Making Contact (http://www.blackgreengames.com/sis.html) at GenCon Indy this year.  Sign in Stranger is a science fiction game where you play humans starting a colony on a planet where humans have never been before. It uses a mad-libs-like mechanic where the players pull random words from a cup to describe the world around the characters, which creates sometimes loopy, sometimes creepy, but always truly alien worlds.

This is a preview edition of the game, which is in final development.  The full edition will be available in 2010 or 2011 with illustrations by Jake Richmond, Jenn Manley Lee, Barry Deutsch and Dylan Meconis.

Here are some play reports:
