2006-08-04: Shooting the Moon is in
by Emily

Thanks to my friendly collective copy store, Shooting the Moon is now in print! (And they were hard at work on 1001 Nights when I was there.)  Here is a link to the brand spanking new cover.  There will soon be a link at Black & Green Games for pre-orders and purchase.

Many thanks also to Jennifer Manley Lee for helping me put it together!
And the cover itself:

Wahooo!

Man, collective is awesome.

Lovely. Can't wait to get it.

Fun game, cool cover, what more could you ask for?

Who did the illustration?

The cover is by Jen Manley Lee; linked above. She's a friend from days of old ('90s) and is an awesome artist and comic author.

I want this.

Will IPR be carrying it as well, or just your own site?

Hi Levi, and congrats on winning best free game in the Indie RPG awards! Woo-hoo!

Shooting the Moon will be available via IPR, as well as my site, very soon.

I had some amazing experiences demoing and running StM at GenCon.  Including an inspiringly tragic game set in Stalingrad at the end of WW2 which I played with the incomparable Jye & Scott from Melbourne, Australia.  Shades of War and Peace, crossed with Anna Karenina.  Oh, Anushka!

Many thanks.

Also, sweet.  I just had Breaking The Ice ordered for me, and decided to poke at related material.  I ran across the StM playtest document, and went "Hey.  Neat."

Partly as a result, I've been starting to poke at 'romance ideas' for other RPGs.  I blame you.

(If you're interested, that's on my journal at http://the-tall-man.livejournal.com/ ).

Levi,

If you just can't wait, I brought a copy back with me from GenCon.

You should come by for Friday gaming sometime (like, say, this week, when I'll be showing off all my GenCon swag).

I had a great time playing this at GenCon.  Obviously, post as soon as it's up at B&G Games and/or IPR.

Best.  Game.  Ever.

I wrote up the Stalingrad game on actual play at the Forge:

[Shooting the Moon]GenCon: Stalingrad '43

Jasper N. has some good questions about dealing with that level of intensity in play.

Incomparable? I don't think I've ever been compared like that before!

Poor Anushka will never know what become of her true love...
