      @Randy - thanks for your statement. As one of those people in an area with a fairly decent collection of players that didn't get any WKOs this last year, I would *really* like to see us get something next year.

      Also, I perked up when you talked about a pro wrestling game. Several of our local players are also huge wrestling fans, one of them even had the brewings of his own game in his head. You wouldn't be looking for some non-local play-testers, would you?

      @Yort , I would definitely be open to doing that. I will probably wait until the end of the summer before looking to send stuff to groups of players. For one, all the demo cards cost about $40 per set. Then there's dice (which I'm currently just using stickers on standard d6). The most important thing though is the rules. I'm still fine tuning the written rules, making sure everything is explained properly and there's no broken game interactions. I plan on getting enough feedback from local gamers and people I convince to play at Origins to make any card edits and rule tweaks before another round of printed demo cards. It's one thing for me to walk someone through how to play. It's another to just send cards, dice, and rules and expect them to piece it all together themselves.

      In the meantime, feel free to follow the game over on Facebook. You can keep up with what's going on, and give some feedback as I post more stuff. www.facebook.com/DiceChampionshipWrestling

      Sounds good - we've also got plenty of spare dice and other board game type paraphernalia if that would help. We've participated in playtesting for FFG as well, so we understand the "alpha" nature of things. Personally I just love trying out new ideas and don't really care much for Pro Wrestling, but my friend actually published a chapter in a pro wrestling book or something like that, so he's in deep.
