Line Dice had yet another successful showing at KublaCon. Well, showing might be a strong word, as I haven't setup any "official" presences, but I did skulk around the gaming areas, starting up games whenever I could, and selling quite a few dice in the process. As I like to say, "Line Dice sell themselves". I had to do little more then play a hand or two with people to ensure a sale on the spot! And just for added fun, two of the games I started where with people waiting for game masters who simply never showed up. The people who ran the event noticed and made those two games officially sanctioned Line Dice games and even gave me some prizes to give away. It was remarkable how fast people learned the value of covering their dice rolls when you put some prizes on the line! >;D

Well I was there I also go in on some games of Werewolves and a game of Shadows Over Camelot. Alot of ruthlessness and betrayal. Those games were almost as intense as the games of Line Dice were when there were prizes up for grabs! (LoL) I think Line Dice might have a future as a Casino game! Of course, you can't rig Line Dice to ensure the house always wins.

One of these days I might have to try hitting up a bigger convention, although I have to say that KublaCon might have already pushed me to my limits. It's quite an event, and I'd highly recommend everyone on this side of the world check it out. Also, well your at it, try a game or two of Line Dice with a prize on the line. It gets REALLY intense!

And one last closing thought, *DEFINITELY* use the new 2-Straights-Then-Turn rule. This is the rule that only allows 2 forward movements before a Turn must happen. This helped the game out IMMEASURABLY! I might have to throw away all 900+ copies of the rules I have currently pre-printed out just to add that one rule. Or maybe a rule addendum card? Either way, that rule is ABSOLUTELY offical now. Don't play Line Dice without it! This rule does not apply to existing moves you're playing into, like pre-existing crosses you pass through. It only applies to 3rd play after 2 consecutive forward plays have been done leading up to the last. Make sense? IT'S OFFICIAL! Keep it in mind, VERY IMPORTANT!
