"So what you need to do,"
says Chris Welsh, "is schmooze into them and say, 'hey it'd
be neat to sit in with you,' and find some way to be subtle and
fit into whatever's happening then."

Rooting Out Evil
"My son received Fluxx as a birthday present last month.
This weekend, we introduced the game to my brothers, who were
visiting for the thanksgiving holiday. What a blast! Even the
most reserved of my brothers was giggling like a young one. The
best part was that the children and the adults actually played
together, and the tv was off for quite some time. Of course,
everyone wants to buy several sets as holiday gifts." -- Email from Louis M
||Yikes! The Holidays Are Upon
all of a sudden, it's winter (we're getting snowed in as I type
this) and Christmas is less than three weeks away. Where does
the time go?
Since it's now that time of year when many of us write those
letters, telling our friends and loved ones how the year has
been, that's what we've been doing this week. Our version of
the annual holiday letter has for many years now been a little
booklet of news, called the Geronimo
Inquirer, and this year's will be issue #7. It's all done
and ready to go to the printers... as soon as we figure out who
we're going to give the job to, and how many copies we need to
make. After that, all we'll need to do to get ready for the holidays
(aside from baking and decorating) will be to write up a few
wishlists and do all of the necessary shopping! And, oh yeah...
run our business. But happily, having long since outsourced
fulfillment, our friends at ACMS will be doing all the work
of shipping out all the games you've been buying from us, so
don't let my whining about being busy keep you from placing an
order in our shopping
center! (And thank you to everyone who already has!)
Speaking of which, last week
we officially launched SuperFRED, and things have been going
really very well. 65 Rabbits got in on our pre-launch deal, earning
a bunch of extra Rabbit Points by setting their accounts up (including
bio and photo) in time for the official launch, and at this point,
we have over a
hundred Rabbits registered. Yay! Thanks everyone! The extra
good news is that you'll all be receiving the new Geronimo Inquirer,
sometime next week or so. We'd like to send out copies to much
more than just to you loyal few... in fact, we're contemplating
sending it to all of the thousands of customers who've shopped
in our webstores during the last few years. It's unclear at this
moment if that will be possible. Kristin and her programmers
went to great lengths to import all of the addresses from the
old (i.e. non-super) FRED we were using before, but with everything
else we have going on right now (not to mention the expense)
we're not sure how widely the new issue will be mailed. However,
you can be certain that everyone who has registered with SuperFRED
will get a copy. (So if you haven't registered
yet, today would be a good time.)
By the way, the photo you see here, of myself and the fabulous
long-haired ladies I live with, was taken (using the timer on
my Nikon) for the program book they'll be printing soon for Arisia. Don't we look cute?
(We're going to be Guests of Honor! Isn't that cool!)
