Hey Buzz - you've written that as !2 twice now. I assume you mean 12?

I for one am reluctant to post the 6 entrants,
Roger did request that I announce the correct date of June 12.

Perhaps some of invitees might post about their games ??

I know Rich has BJ split and expect his game to fare better with a 20 minute time. I saw a few people still setting their
hand wrong on his last deal around.

Back to the second events's specs:
The extra "per-game" time will help immensely.
So will "less flurry/the round-robin" burn-out also.
So will non-competition with the sponsor on an open audition.
Quick study and quick response you can expect from Roger.
....

The list of entrants.
I know/have met/dealt with/... Rich and Wayne.

The young man Rich M. impresses me. Spoke to him at Roger's dinner. Pure "Eye on the Brass Ring" positive attitide; he seemed steadfast, serene, unshakeable and accepting for a new game designer. Totally free of storms and screams and upsets over his baby, Rich is not any sort of "stage mother" who is baby-sitting or sweating his kid's screen-test or audition here, - just a "step up to the plate, and give it you best shot, son. Let's see how ya do, and we'll take the next steps from there." Remarkable. I came from New York City and the High School of Performing Arts (class of '78) - I can tell you there are high school and college kids who would slit their wrists if they don't make into Columbia University, or "The Manhattan School of Music" or "Julliard School of Music" based on a single audition, there really are.

There are also sharp kids who auditioned for ten colleges, never sweating a single one of them, and took SUNY Binghamtom's drama department, or CCNY's school of the Arts, saying, "I'll make this happen, even if I pay for college with two years in Iraq or Afghanistan" - and some do. If they die trying, it was never a suicide, self-inflicted wound, or from an attitude problem with a complaint about the process. It was "I'll try my best to make it happen, AND I won't sweat it or cry." In my first year with DEQ, I took a few black eyes to knock the "Julliard School Attitude" out of me as a game designer. I have never seem a game designer so serene while maintaining interest in his kid at this stage. Your own games, especially the first ones, are very big, huge to you...

If Rich follows up with this game thing, fine. If he doesn't, and goes onto something else, I expect him to be a Lieutenant Colonel in the Air Force by the time he is Fourty.
Priceless lesson. Wish I saw it or lived it at his age, because it wasn't me then.

...Wayne and I have had some dealings on Break Poker, but I like two of his his BJ side bets.

Frank and Kevin and the others I haven't met, I'm looking forward to it.

I'm showing a poker variant called "Play the Board;" I did the casino version of one of Gary's poker room game's I like, not as much as Hong Kong Poker, and it would be very informative to see how this game concept goes over. A gamble, but that's what this search is about.
