Damn you Czege, what about us poor foreigners! I guess I'll just have to find someone to raid the Forge stall for me.

As for my guess(es), The Forge? Follow the Yellow Crack Road - a psychotronic game of cars, drugs, ruby slippers and small dogs. How far will you go to get back home?

Dragonlance: A New Beginning.

Heh heh heh.

I have no idea for an actual guess, but thanks to this thread I am now imensely curious.

ethan_greer

Shit, I also meant to ask, will it be available outside of GenCon?

Paul Czege

Clinton, not correct. But damn, what's more painful, girls who lack the skills to achieve their dreams, or girls who ruin their own lives in the process of helping others? (I'm not sure I could write another one of these.)

Ethan, not correct. But I promise availability if you're not at GenCon.

Vincent, you are not disqualified.

Steve, not correct. But see my response to Ethan.

Paul Czege

Mike, not correct. But a great guess; that one's definitely in the oven.

If you've written "Your '50's Name - an RPG add-on for bowling,"  I"m pissed.  Because I was going to do that . . .

Paul Czege

Gordon, not correct. (We can probably negotiate a quit claim fee if you're worried about competition for that idea.)

The printer beat my expectations. I have the books in hand! And so, a second hint:

    My Life with Master takes place in "the vague setting of an unspecified central European country, somewhere around 1805, in and around an unnamed town." This game is more specific, down to the exact year, season, city, and country in which the events of play take place.[/list]

    Okay, the third hint, a visual one for visual thinkers, in the style of Concentration:

      (Danielle rolled the d30. And yes, Ed's disqualified because it's his artwork!)

      Larry L.

      I know I'm missing a word here. However, I will not allow this goddam contest to consume any more of my Saturday afternoon, so I'm going to guess:

      Bacchanal


      GB Steve

      I found a couple of references to Bachanalia. Tolstoy painted a picture in 1808, and Schopenhauer talks about it too, in The World as Will and Idea in 1818.

      Paul Czege

      Larry, that is correct. Congratulations! You got it just from the Concentration puzzle, and not from having read my pseudonymously submitted entry to the Game Chef competition and thinking it had my stylistic fingerprint? (Score one for visual thinkers.) Are you going to be at GenCon? If not, PM me your mailing address.

      (Incidentally, our playtest was a blast, and actually resulted in just very minor changes.)

      Mike, I apologize for getting up your nose on the Game Chef forums.

      Vincent, I apologize for lying to you on the phone.

      Paul


      I wrote and submitted it as M. Paul Buja. My Life with Master is a multiply award-winning game. I didn't want that to influence the judges.
