Atlas Games is doing a very special promotion this year at BGG.CON 2006. They sent me 150 pounds of games to give away!!! (I think my UPS delivery person is starting to hate me)

That is, I have sitting here in my office 400 copies of Pieces of Eight - one copy of the game for every attendee.

Each attendee gets a velvet pouch containing a set of 16 coins (either the Maiden's Vengeance set or the Cursed Blade), a rulebook, an explanatory note from designer Jeff Tidball, and a mini-FAQ, when you sign in.

Keep the game in your pocket - it's extremely portable, and you don't need a surface to play on - just your hands.

Here's Atlas Games' announcement as well:

That is really great.

Edit -
After reading through the rules it looks like an interesting little game.

SWEEEEEET!

Hopefully between myself, my wife, and my father-in-law, we won't all have the same set. If we do, I don't imagine it will be too hard to trade, though.

Regardless, this is great news. Thanks, Atlas and Aldie!

Odd: The .pdf file is blocked from work for sexually explicit. I guess I need to get it at home.

Awesome. Thanks Atlas & BGG. Very thoughtful!

Any other publishers want to step it up or are you afraid of receiving mass praise from the BGG community?

Maybe it's all that mention of 'booty'.

You're sure it's the game and not the Styx album, right?

So is this what you were hinting at on the roundtable when you said everyone would leave with a game? I assumed you meant the door prize/game table thing I read about last year. This is a great surprise!

If you're getting it at home, you shouldn't need the sexually explicit files
