Metagame cards at the printer!

Hello everyone! It's time for another Metagame update.

We have a lot of good news: the card designs are complete and are currently at the printer. We've completed the Metagame poster, for those of you receiving that reward for your level of support. We've been playing the Metagame at game conferences, most recently the Digital Game Research Association conference in Helversum in The Netherlands and Indiecade in Los Angeles. I think our favorite play of the game was designer Myles Nye actually rapping an argument at Indiecade about the game Parappa the Rapper. 

The not-quite-as-great news is that the printing and shipping of the cards will take longer than anticipated. We struggled to find a balance between great quality and quick printing at a cost that we could afford. In the end, we decided to go with high-quality cards, but the only hitch is that the process is going to take several more weeks. To be safe, we can promise that you will get your cards in December. We are so sorry to have to give you another later date, but this one is final. We apologize for the delay, but we hope it will all be worthwhile when you get your Metagame cards in the mail.

As far as the cards themselves, we couldn't be happier with the images. We worked with amazing illustrators and they came up with some incredible images for the games they love. A few of the new cards are posted at the bottom of this update. 

Now that we have the cards off to the printer, we are focusing on revamping the Metagame website and planning the next moves in our coming storm of Metagame activities. Keep an eye on the Local No. 12 website for details. 

As always, thanks for the support! 
- Colleen, Eric, & John
