This week Tasty Minstrel (the company publishing our first game, Train of Thought) had a novel idea: play Train of Thought via a forum on the popular board game website: www.boardgamegeek.com.
It seemed to go over really well. The developer of the game, Seth, would post a start word and his 3 word clue, then anyone visiting the forum would post a one word guess to his clue. After some time passed, Seth would check the responses and then use one of the guesses in his new 3 word clue. He would continue doing this until the destination word was guess and that player would get a point.
Then he continued to play until 6 words were guessed. It generated a bit of traffic and buzz for the game and he plans on repeating it. What a cool idea!
