Hi there,

After five years, BARBAREN! is finally finished and will be released at Spiel Essen 2009 in October. I am filling out some blanks in the manuscript last minute. One of them is playtesters. There was this game at GenCon 2005 which Julie (jrs) ran. Help me out. There was Julie (I don't think I know her last name). There were Emily Care, Ben Lehman, Jared Sorensen and Ron Edwards. Who else?

*gruntz*

Jasper Anderton, and Tom ... dammit, I totally know Tom's last name, can't remember it at this very second, posts here as "bluegargantua."

One of the guys from Breakfast of Demons was there too - either Brian Pope or Andrew Clark, and sadly, I can't remember which.

Best, Ron

My last name is Stauffer.

I think bluegargantua's full name is Tom Russell; can someone else confirm? There were more people at the table, but my mind has gone fuzzy as to who all was there and who was playing vs who was observing.

Julie

p.s. Here's the original post on that playtest.

Aha! No wonder, they were both there, plus Jennifer Clark too.

Tom Russell indeed (confirmed). Tom, you'll be pleased to know that at least I did not sit up in the middle of the night, suddenly awake, shouting your name. I sort of feared that given the "dammit I know I know that" effect yesterday.

It's off to the printer, after all!

Check out the preview. I'm very happy with how it looks. I feel the game design and text is not as good as it could have been, but my perfectionism was why nothing happened literally for years, so it's probably good I set it aside. I don't know when the game will be available in English, but we are certainly planning to do an English version, which will be published under license by RedBrick.
