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).
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.

The deadline for sending gifts in the mail in time for X-mas has passed. But there’s still time for an electric gift, and for those of you who would like to give a role playing game this year Epidiah Ravachol runs another round of Epimas.
For every game you give to someone else, you also get a copy for yourself. Which is excellent, of course. You can learn the game in advance and when the receiver gets the gift you are ready to answer questions or discuss it.
Last year I participated with a special revised edition of While the World Ends, and this year I offer a special edition of The Daughters of Verona.
The special Epimas edition of the game combines the lovely DIY craft project aspect of the free version with the full set of cards from rarer than unicorns printed edition. It also has the full set of rules, but reformatted for easier screen reading and printing. But that is not all, the Epimas edition also includes special act tracking cards that didn’t make it into the printed edition due to cost constraints.
So head over to the Epimas site and send The Daughters of Verona to someone who will enjoy a brilliant game of Shakespearean comedy. The game is just $5 for the two copies, and even cheaper if bought in one of the many bundles with other fun, scary, interesting, sexy or strange games.
