The Gentlemen of the South Sandwiche Islands was recently announced a finalist at one of my favorite international games festivals. Here's a link to the press release:
I will have a chance to revise the game before presenting the version that will appear at the festival in October, so this is a really good opportunity to give me feedback before I submit a final version. I'm looking at the first edition (that I sent out) as a big round of playtesting.
Your feedback is important.
There is a nice forum about the game gathering at this link (below). Please play and rate. The ratings are an uphill battle and I need the people who actually have a copy of the game to submit opinions. Very important. Please try it and write what you think at this site: http://www.boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/65094/the-gentlemen-of-the-south-sandwiche-islands
Ah. I am so happy that it was accepted to IndieCade. I really like this festival.
As always, thank you for your support.
Rule Clarification and Fun Fact
Rule Clarification: To answer a question about the game that could be ambiguous in the rules:
A point is awarded *as soon* as a jules or hodge is with Lady Ashley alone on a space. (Not after a turn has passed.)
Fun Fact #47: The Gentlemen characters - the mapmaker and the manufacturer of distorted glass - each represent a different relationship faux pas. They are each brilliant in their own way, but they are intended to be tremendous duffers in the game of courtship.
