Reiver Games Rules The (Air)Waves

I'll be on the local radio station this evening, talking about Reiver Games, Border Reivers and It's Alive! To be honest I'm not really ready for it, with fifty-six outstanding orders and only five finished copies at home. But I've already put it off once and it should be fun. I'll be on BBC Radio York (103.7, 104.3 & 95.5 FM) just after 6:30 this evening. It should in theory be available via their website live and after the fact, but they seem to be experiencing some technical difficulties so I wouldn't count on it.

In other news, the professionally made boxes are due to arrive on Friday, which should significantly speed up my production, I'm hoping to be able to make at least twelve games a week once the boxes arrive, meaning I should clear my backlog in four weeks or so. I've got a convention to attend in that time though, so it'll probably push out a little.

There are a few people on the waiting list who have gone quiet. I've emailed them (weeks ago in some cases) to tell them their copies are ready and they've neither replied to say they don't want it any more nor paid up. The silence is a little frustrating, as I don't know whether to: keep a copy ready for them in case they are about to order; keep them on the list but concentrate on others or remove them from the list and give their copy to the next person who orders. I'm going with number two at the moment. I'm now getting through the copies ordered at the Expo, so if you ordered there I'm getting to you!

I received my copy of It's Alive! Number 47!
I've convinced the kids to play 3 times already. My daughters are 10 and 12 and they could have easily played this game at 8 years old. I think the age recommendation could go lower but it's a catch 22 because I think some adults think a game is a "kids" game if it has a lower start age. My 12 year old beat me in the last 2 games and loved yelling "It's Alive".
It's a fast game and my girls prefer the shorter games.

Hiya Bobby,

Glad to hear it's going down well. To be honest the age would have been lower (and it was for Yehuda's The Menorah Game) but I wasn't sure the theme and gruesome artwork was suitable for small children so I upped it just to be on the safe side.

Cheers,

Jack

Yehuda,

I'm afraid there's no listen again link - it's not being re-published online :-(

Cheers,

Jack
