Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

ACTION CASTLE at PAX-East — World Record Breaking Game?

Hey, PAX Nation.

Be sure to join me in the Merman theatre at 3:30 on Friday for some Parsely games, including the now-infamous ACTION CASTLE! Last year PAX East had over 300 players...!

Let me know you're coming here on the Action Castle Facebook page.

If you don't know what ACTION CASTLE is, you can find out more information on my site (and see a video of Gabe and Tycho accidentally playing it). I'll also be running game demos and panels with my cohort Luke Crane of Burning Wheel fame.

See you in Boston,

- Jared

    Won't be making it to this one, but I played Action Castle for the first time at PAX East last year and it was certified awesome.

    Shouldn't ACTION CASTLE only ever be posted in all caps?

    It only seems fitting.

    I wanted to make a note that there appears to be a typo on your site: isn't the book "Kobolds Ate My Baby" instead of "at" my baby?

    Looks like a fun game :)

    He's Moe, me makes up the infractions. And now caps are required when writing ACTION CASTLE.

    Sounds about right to me. ACTION CASTLE should always be in caps :)

    The cats who played ACTION CASTLE! with Gabe and Tycho were actually "friends-of-Sorencrane" Scott and Rym from GeekNights. I ran the event on Sunday morning where we had 300+ people show up, including Steve Jackson!
