March 2019 - High Rise is BACK on Kickstarter!

Last month, I made the difficult decision to cancel the High Rise Kickstarter. I promised you all that I'd be back in a few weeks, with a retooled game that didn't cost so much.

Well, here it is. We're back on Kickstarter!

I've been testing this version of the game furiously for the past few weeks, and I'm really happy where it is. The game still has a strong sense of scale and verticality, but we were able to get the main pledge level down to $59 plus shipping.

Please join me today. I can't wait for High Rise to join the Formal Ferret family of games!

4 weeks, 4 conventions

I'll be at 4 conventions in the next 4 weeks. It'll be an excellent opportunity for you to try High Rise!

First up: Granite Game Summit in Nashua, NH, from Friday March 8 to Sunday March 10. This is a small convention that has a lovely intimate vibe. I'll be showing High Rise on Saturday March 9 at noon, but I'm sure I'll be showing it all weekend!

Second up: GAMA Trade Show in Reno, NV from Monday, March 11 to Friday, March 15. As the name implies, this is a trade show, so it's not open to the public. But if you're a retailer or a distributor and you'll be attending, please let me know so we can schedule a meeting, or come by booth 218 during vendor hall hours on Wednesday and Thursday!

Third up: GDC in San Francisco, CA from Monday, March 18 to Friday, March 22. I have the good fortune of speaking there on Monday. Afterwards, I'll be roaming the halls, so come find me if you would like to chat or play something!

I'm hoping to find as many gaming meetups as I can in the Bay Area while I'm in San Francisco. Follow my Twitter or Facebook to find out where I'll be!

Finally: PAX East in Boston, MA from Thursday, March 28 to Sunday, March 31. I'll be in the Tabletop area, booth TT03. We will be demoing and selling The Networks, Wordsy, and Bad Medicine, and we'll have a demo copy of High Rise to show off as well.

It's a grueling schedule, but I'm excited to hit the road and meet up with all of you!


Bad Medicine in stores on March 6

Finally, another big milestone for Formal Ferret Games: after almost 4 years, Bad Medicine will be back in stores on March 6! If you don't have the game yet, or you'd like to get it for a friend, you'll be able to starting Wednesday.

That's the news for March. See you on Kickstarter!
