Hi there, Gamers! I know it's been a while but we have just a couple of quick points to kind of catch everyone up on. There are several things that are going on and I want to talk about the things we have recently been doing too. We have been very busy, and with that, I'd also like to apologize for how late we are on Scraps. With so much going on, I’m afraid that keeping up on the stories has suffered. In the meantime, settle in and enjoy my bullet points.
First of all, Geekway to the West was amazing! One of my few regrets for this con was that two of my fellow Jack the Ripper co-designers, (James Paul Gaugh and Anthony Morris), couldn’t make it to this one. That really sucks because it was a ton of fun this year and we got to meet quite a few really cool folks from all over the country. On the flip side of that regret, my co-designer John Watson, and the Jack the Ripper artist, Dawn Rucker, was able to make it!
Our events were great, especially Friday. Game Designer John Watson came up with the idea of including a tournament within our preview event and, after we worked out the details, it went off amazingly. Congratulations to the winner of our Jack the Ripper Face Off tournament, Nieccole!
Geekway 2016 isn’t even a full week gone yet and I can’t wait for Geekway 2017. We look forward to seeing Kathleen Mercury’s smiling face direct us to our event space!
As you can see by the banner at the top of the home page, Jack the Ripper is on KICKSTARTER right now. I know, I can’t believe it either! So please, if you are interested in playing this great primer / filler game built around a social deduction and chaos, check out our KICKSTARTER, our info on the game, and our videos featuring play. I believe anyone that plays Jack 3 or 4 times will fall in love with this game.
If you have any questions or comments, please don’t hesitate to let us know. I look forward to explaining whatever you would like to know about Jack and the scavenger hunters of Jack the Ripper.
Here’s a list of links I hope you’ll visit to learn about Jack the Ripper and the KICKSTARTER campaign.
