A Very Pleasant Surprise --
Today (Monday) was Thanksgiving Day here in Canada . . . and for me it has ended with a very pleasant surprise. Some British gamers tried out an early version of "Tricorne Wars" and sent me a report.
The very first sentence of their email gave me great pleasure -- "We gave these rules a try last night and had quite a lot of fun."
They then followed up with a number of questions . . . which pointed out to me a number of things I had failed to cover . . . (thank goodness for playtesting)!
They also asked if they had interpreted certain things correctly (they had); and criticized the (lack of) organization to the rules. I certainly had to plead guilty to that one. Currently they are in a sort of "stream-of-consciousness" state of disorganization -- more or less written down as I thought of things.
Finally, they commented on several things that they really liked about the rules . . . and these were, in fact, the key heart of "Tricorne Wars". This made me really happy; and very thankful for a group of gamers in the United Kingdom.
I'm hoping that someone took a few photos and/or will send me an account of the battle . . . but whether that happens or not, please allow me to say a hearty "Thanks, guys!" to them.
