@Jacob I'm glad you are exploring sir!!! Originally we had a 5 in there but in play-testing it became a number that folks dreaded the most. So we c hanged the plan and adapted to a more conducive style based on feedback. Hope you are having fun!

Oo, slight error in my math, the odds of 3 go to 15/36 from 18/36 and 4 go to 8/36 from 6/36, which does increase four's prevalence slightly! I'll do some playtesting with this to see how it goes.

3. ### Jacob Ouellette on August 15, 2012

Update!

I did a bunch of math, and will be switching my dice heads to the following: (I'm going to print myself some custom stickers)

Dice 1: Yellow +2, Yellow +1, Orange +2, Orange, +1, Empty +2, Empty +3
Dice 2: Both +2, Both +1, Yellow +1, Yellow, +1, Orange +1, Orange +1
(So if you rolled Dice1: Yellow +2, and Dice2: Orange +1, you'd have Both with 3 syllables.)

This causes there to be a 1/36 chance to get 5 syllable words, and also increases the incident of "boths" being used for 2 sided dice greatly, which is one annoyance I have with the current odds. The odds of getting 2 or 4 syllable words is otherwise unchanged, and the odds of getting 3 syllable words is 1/36 less.

I can show my math if needed!

We just played our first game last night and it went great ! Everybody had lots of fun. We joked that the color dice should have a +1 bonus syllable on it to create a 1/36 chance for situations with 5 syllable words, but that's probably a bad idea. because it'd increase the odds of 4 syllable words too much.

At the end of the game, we tried to do the apples-to-apples thing where you each are your set of syllables randomly shuffled, but that didn't really work.

Also, as a thought, I recommend putting on the packaging the recommended target cards to play to the first time you play, as we didn't have any ideas and could have use some (even bad) guidance, e.g., in a 5 player game, playing to around 9 points might be a reasonable number, but we initially started with 20! In a 3 player game, I'd imagine you would play to a higher number.

Also, we recommend having the player to the right of the judge read all the cards, to reduce handwriting bias and generally make it more interactive

We are with you David in compete agreement, the only thing we were disappointed with was the box. For this iteration that's what we have. We will have to see what happens with future runs. Hope you enjoy it. As far as it hitting retail we'll need to see what type of deal could happen but we do have an alternate design for a final box with more art and explanation.

6. ### David B on August 10, 2012

Got mine today. Is the white box the final design? If that's going to retail shops, it leaves quite a bit to be desired. There's no "this is what the game looks like when it's being played" artwork or really anything that gives anyone any indication what the game actually is. The card quality is pretty good and the rules were pretty clear but the box ...

What is the definition of "Rhythite"?

14. ### William Edmonds on January 20, 2012

Rythite--A flexible plastic often used in construction. It is light, sturdy and not flammable.

15. ### BigRye6-time creator on January 20, 2012

Sorry for any confusion on the surveys gang! I sent an update to hopefully clarify, we are picking the Rythite definition winner tonight!

16. ### Daneen McDermott Superbacker on January 19, 2012

Rythite - an extremely dense and waxy marble stone. Rythite is impervious to markers, chalk, charcoal, ink and other markings, making it perfect for forming the walls of a labyrinth or maze.

17. ### Nik Houser on January 19, 2012

Forrest Woodward, I got the same thing with my pledge for 18 bucks. It wouldn't let me submit my info unless I checked one of those boxes. So I checked the awesome and super-generous one, though I'd only pledge 18 bucks.

On a side note, my girlfriend and I are total word game nerds. Can't wait to get this game!!!

18. ### Nik Houser on January 19, 2012

RYTHITE: (Archaic) Iron gauntlet-quill used during the Middle Ages to force left-handed people to write with their right hand.

19. ### Forrest Woodward on January 19, 2012

I'm a little confused by the Survey. I pledged \$33. The Survey asks why I pledged more that \$33 listing options like extra starter decks or IPB, but all I want is what was listed for the \$33 pledge amount. Do I check "I'm awesome and super generous"?

20. ### Brad Torres on January 19, 2012

Rhythite - n. The evolution of metal-type Pokémon, Rhython: the Unicorn Snake.

Also, the surveys make you "finish", which sometimes includes having to click radio buttons that don't apply to you.

21. ### Sean Mitchell on January 19, 2012

The survey made a liar out of me. I DIDN'T pledge more than the 33\$ amount, but it wouldn't let me finish the survey unless I clicked why I DID pledge more than the 33\$ amount...

22. ### Forrest Woodward on January 16, 2012

Darn. So close to \$5500. And I was so looking forward to custom cast dice.

23. ### John Little on January 16, 2012
