My First Game Closer to a Second Print Run

As reported on Boardgame News, Reiver Games (the publisher) site, and Creation and Play (publisher's blog), my game It's Alive is doing well. Over half the original hand-assembled and numbered print run is already gone. You can still buy copies online, but probably not for much longer.

But don't despair. Jack, the publisher, is in discussions for a second larger print run. If it comes about, it will probably be less lovable and unnumbered, but slightly cheaper.

For some reason, some Stargate fan published the list of Teal'c's five favorite board games. Funny and worth the read if you're into Stargate.

Caitlin Johnson, a high schooler writing Teen Beat for the Post Bulletin, is not only into board games, but into Settlers of Catan and Ticket to Ride.

Also into German board games is Phil Schwartzmann of the podcast Voice of S60, as he relates in this interview.

MasterMalaysia is a trivia board game about the country, developed by a branch of its government. tells us that a number of poker professionals started as Magic: the Gathering players.

And rounding us off, goes all kabbalistic about the game of Scrabble.

Congrats on the reprint! I saw the news on Boardgamenews this morning. From one recently published in small run designer to another, I'm excited for you :)

For the Magic players becoming pro poker players, there's a very entertaining book called "Johnny Magic and the Cardshark Kids" that's about that very subject.
