It's REAL SIMPLE

The December issue of REAL SIMPLE includes The Pocket Guide to Games in its gift guide.

Many thanks to the RS staff for this unexpected kindness.

You're possibly wondering why the magazine isn't REALLY SIMPLE. It's because the two words in its title are meant to stand alone... and next to each other. That is, the magazine is REAL and it's SIMPLE. I suppose they could have gone with REAL/SIMPLE, but there were probably good reasons not to. Consumer resistance to backslashes and all that.

You rocketh. Saw a nice display of your books at the Holiday Open House at The Arrangement on NE Fremont...

My thanks for the hot tip; I'll be sure to pop in and express my gratitude to The Arrangement folks for that.

So did you see any good games in the guide? Have you played "Bananagrams"? Gonna try it out with my family during the holi-daze.

Bart King said...

Yes, Banana-grams rule.

As for other games in the gift guide: I had just begun browsing our copy when my wife, Lynn, plucked it from my hands and stuck the sports section in its place. Talk about gender stereotyping...

I’ll try sneaking it away later.

Rooster Fights are our new favorite way of resolving conflict in the Faust Fischer household!

I would like to run that as a blurb on the next printing of the book. (The first print run of two-dozen copies, is nearly sold out.)

Stephen King? He's a blood relative, right?!

"Blood"?!

I don't get it. :)
