I've been overwhelmed by the number of positive mentions of Penny I've seen recently:
- Jim Crocker, manager of Modern Myths in Northampton, MA, calls A Penny For My Thoughts one of his favorite games of the year. I know Jim doesn't praise things lightly, so this means a lot to me.
- The Ogres over at OgreCave found room for Penny on their annual Christmas Gift Guide, in the Stocking Stuffer (i.e. less than $25) section. For the last seven or so Christmases, I've looked foward to this list. Finding my own game on it is an unexpected present.
- There was at least one game of Penny at MACE in High Point, NC, that sounds like it was both gonzo and fun. Later on in that thread, Andy Kitkowksi talks thoughfully about his experience of the game, using words that make me happy.
- And finally, the day before Thanksgiving, my mother called me and asked me to send her a PDF because she'd forgotten her copy at home. My parents were visiting friends in Plainview, TX, and on Thanksgiving Day they played Penny together and had a great time. This is pretty much the definition of win.
