The Daughters of Verona is back in print, sort of. I have put all the cards and the rules into a booklet which is available via Lulu. The center pages can be lifted from the book, and then cut down with scissors to make the two decks of cards needed to play the game.
The game was already available as a PDF via DriveThruRPG, but this booklet edition will allow those who don’t have access to a color printer to still make a play set in color.
The paper in the booklet is surprisingly sturdy, but for durability I propose that you put the cards in standard sized card sleeves (e.g. those suitable for Magic the Gathering, any fine local game store can help you pick the right ones). Get 100 sleeves, or 50 each of two different colors if you want to separate character cards from story cards by color (not necessary for play).
Earlier this month I posted a few of my games as PDF downloads on DriveThruRPG.
I am a bit curious about why Okult is considered to be 30 times more valuable on average than Until Dawn. My hypothesis is that it has to do with page count. To test this hypothesis I have enlisted to produce some artwork, and I have started revising the text. It will be interesting to see if the game is considered more valuable as the number of pages goes up.
Somewhere between the two falls The Daughters of Verona, valued at one third of Okult, but still ten times that of Until Dawn. And the page count is somewhere in between.
Looking at the scientific method of this study I am aware of a couple of weaknesses. There are other factors that set the games apart than just page count. But still, it will be interesting to see how a revised Until Dawn fares against the short and sweet version.
While the bills-paying work has taken a lot of my time and effort this far this year, I haven’t left the game development stuff entirely.
I have done some minor edits on Until Dawn, tweaked the layout on The Phenomenon. Both games have then been posted on DriveThruRPG as Pay What You Want downloads.
While I was at it I also posted the Epimas edition of The Daughters of Verona, also as a PWYW download.
I like X-mas, I like The Daughters of Verona and I want more people to play it with their friends and family during the holidays.
So I cut the price on the remaining copies over on IPR. It’s somewhat of a boutique game, if there’s such a thing, but at least there should be less of a threshold for those of you who have been sitting on the fence over the matter.
It is non-violent, rules light, engaging, beginner friendly and the story always ends well. It is the perfect game to introduce new players into the hobby.
