G'day Backers!

Happy Fall to the Northern Hemisphere! I'm excited to travel up from the land of Down Under to tour the US for scientific conferences and for Go Extinct!, of course!

Go Extinct! honored with 2016 Indiecade Tabletop Selection!

We're thrilled to announce that IndieCade, that nation's largest celebration of independent games has recognized Go Extinct! with a 2016 Tabletop Selection! Over 1000 games were submitted for judging and only 12 tabletop titles were selected.

IndieCade goes down in at USC in LA, October 13-16th. Anita, our astounding artist, and I will be in attendance. If you're local come say hi! Go Extinct! will be presenting from 3-5pm on Saturday the 15th. 

Next stop: Stanford 

I'll next be in the Bay Area for my 5th reunion (my, time flies) from Oct 17-22nd. Stanford University recently covered Go Extinct! as did Stanford Professor, Dr. Paul Erlich's organization, the Millennium Alliance for Humanity and the Biosphere (MAHB). 

The MAHB promotes art communicating a conservation ethic. In addition to featuring Go Extinct!, they covered my Pint of Science keynote on how science is creative and why this provides a strong argument for diversity in STEM.

Creativity is based on our unique experiences, influences, and ideas

Paleontologists love all things extinct

The Society of Vertebrate Paleontologists convenes in Salt Lake City this year from Oct 24th-31st (Halloween is a gift to us charismatic fossil fauna nerds :P). I'll be presenting my recent research as well as prototypes of my next game, Suddenly Cute. Stay tuned!

Huxley Award hustles us to the National Association of Biology Teachers

Back in the in spring, the Society for the Study of Evolution awarded Go Extinct! their Thomas Henry Huxley Award for outstanding outreach achievements. 

As part of the award, they are generously funding my travel to the National Assoc. of Biology Teachers! The first week of November, I'll be in Denver presenting the game and running a workshop for the dedicated biology teachers who inspire the next generation of biologsists and scientifically-informed citizens :) 

Thank you so much for your support, hope to see some of you states-side, and keep playing games!
