A lot of stuff has happened in the past week. First, there was the Game Developer's Conference, and you can read (a whole lot of words) about my personal experiences with it here:
- GDC 2012, Indie Game: The Movie
- GDC 2012, The Day Before Day 1
- GDC 2012, Day 1
- GDC 2012, Day 2
- GDC 2012, Day 3
Next, Yomi received a Best Card Game award from Bestcovery. Yomi stands among Dominion, King of Tokyo, Apples to Apples, and UNO on the Best Card Games list on Bestcovery.com.
Games With Two also reviewed both Yomi and Puzzle Strike in the last week:
And there's more! PAX East will have both an official Yomi tournament and an official Puzzle Strike tournament on the convention's tournament schedule. There will also be demos of Sirlin Games at the Game Salute booth. We could use your help in running those tournaments and in doing demos of Yomi, Puzzle Strike, and/or Flash Duel, too. If you're interested in helping out, please sign up at gamesalute.com/volunteer. You can also sign up to help out at other conventions such as GenCon and Origins at that same link. I think our whole community would be grateful to anyone willing to be an ambassador to introduce new players to our games, so thanks in advance.
And one more thing. Sirlin Games has had a distributor in Canada for some time now: Lion Rampant. And now we have a distributor in Germany, too: Brave New World. German stores (or stores anywhere in the world) can still order from Game Salute at gamestorelocator.com, but now German stores can go through the channels they're more used to going through, and they can probably save on shipping cost, too. If you're in Germany, now's your chance support your local stores, and tell them to sign up with Brave New World and carry Sirlin Games if they haven't already.
It was quite a week! And thanks to all of you for making Flash Duel our latest success!
