A double delay in updates! I did not get a post written for 3/17 as there was just too much going on. I had been at a work event in Texas and then flew to Rochester to visit Jim. He and I spent St. Patrick's day driving to Baltimore for Unpub 7. It was also Jim's birthday and nice to celebrate the day with him. So for these reasons I did not write a post on 3/17. Then for some reason the 3/24 post did not save correctly and is being uploaded late.
Judging is underway for the Cardboard Edison award and it has been somewhat surreal to see Spell Bound Books and Frankenstein Academy popping up in their social media accounts. The contest also made it into the news segment of The Secret Cabal Gaming Podcast in episode and the hosts mentioned Frankenstein Academy as a game that stood out to them, which was amazing. The contest winner will be announced on April 6th!
Don't put all your eggs in one basket: Testing at Unpub 7 showed us that this game is very close! New cards were developed and added and there are lots of different strategic choices which feels good for a small game. Next step is to continue testing to get the card ratio right and to enhance the look of the prototype.
