We're playing with 3601 gameful monsters and counting...

Hello Gameful backers!

8 months after the launch of our secret headquarters gameful.org, we've got a thriving community of 3601 gameful monsters and counting.

With 242 groups and more than 1500 discussion topics, we're sure you'll meet at least one new ally and stumble onto one amazing resource every time you log in...

This month, we're launching 3 new game design challenges to keep you busy all summer long prototyping and playtesting worldchanging games! 

This summer, you'll also meet plenty of fellow gameful monsters at real-world events like the Games for Change Festival (http://gamesforchange.org/festival2011/) and Come Out and Play (http://www.comeoutandplay.org/).

We just wanted to say: Thank you for making Gameful possible, and be sure to stop by and say "Fiero!" to your fellow monsters. \o/

GAMEFUL: We're live! Can you come out and play?

It's an exciting day for Gameful monsters everywhere: our secret headquarters is officially open!

http://www.gameful.org

We're building this community from scratch, and YOU'RE one of our founding members.

So dig in, crack your monster egg, accept a challenge, find an ally, earn some treats, learn something new... It's all in a day's play at Gameful.

2 days to go... and TWO secret missions will unlock!

Hello Gameful friends,

Just 48 hours to go, and we have raised over $55,000. AMAZING!

With this much funding, we'll have 20 gameful fairies to kick us off, full support for the first annual Gameful Awards, and many surprises in the works for the gameful community...

So what happens next?

Next weekend, we'll send Kickstarter message getting everyone's mailing address for the puzzle pieces and requests for the books, secret fiero monsters, and more.

In the meantime, some good news: It looks as if, thanks to your community-building efforts, we will be able to unlock not one... but TWO secret missions!

The first mission is a 500-piece puzzle for the first 500 Kickstarter backers. We're at 487 now; the next 13 to get in before the round runs out will join this ultra-secret mission. (So tell your friends!)

The second (surprise!) mission is a 1500-piece puzzle for the friends of Kickstarter backers who have pledged at $98 and up. (They each get a bonus 11 memberships/puzzle pieces to share with friends.) That mission may be harder to accomplish... because who knows how far and wide those extra puzzle pieces will spread? But if any group can figure it out, it's Gameful...

Please let your favorite gameful people know that there are still 13 founding memberships left... and just 48 hours to get one!
