The Sky is Falling 1: List Chicken is Here

There has always been list chicken in the game. There have always been skew lists and counters, high Arm and high Def, Madrak2 trollblood swarms and Runes of War, and the list goes on.

Making something out of nothing: Part 3

Avengers assemble! At this point, if you are following my plan you are ready to go in terms of selling the game.  What you need is “customers.”  Now the work really begins.  You’ve got the basic pieces in place, so it is now time to start recruiting members into the fold.  Obviously, this is something that is incredibly dependent on your individual situation and not that easy to do.  This is where the lack of a game store really hurts...
