Today’s special Google logo celebrates the 107th anniversary of Winsor McCay’s Little Nemo with a short animated comic that unfurls, row by row, as you click the little ribbon in the lower right corner. The art is fabulous, and as owners of House of Cards no doubt already know, Little Nemo is cited as one of the founding influences on the game. Go have a look on the main Google page today!
For those of you who’ve perhaps been on the fence about getting a print copy of House of Cards, perhaps this will nudge you in the right direction: the price just went down! Head over to our section at IPR to nab a hardcover for $25 or a softcover for $15. As always, a digital copy is bundled free with the purchase of any physical copy.
I didn’t see the post sneak in right before Gen Con (probably because I was frantically trying to get ready for the show), so I’m just now getting to mentioning this, but if you haven’t already taken a listen, go hear what Mags has to say about House of Cards on All Games Considered.
The oft-requested House of Cards example of play is now downloadable for free. Avail yourself of it at your convenience.

If you’re going to be in Indianapolis for Gen Con this year, come play House of Cards at Games on Demand! I’ll be running sessions from 2pm-6pm in the Games on Demand/Indie Games Explosion space, ICC 238 (upper level, in the Hoosier concourse over the exhibit halls). See you there!
