DVONN est arrivée
Since it makes no sense to remain paralized
by the terrible things that have happened recently in the US, I
have permitted myself to be happy with DVONN. Later than initially
planned, however still in 2001, the fourth game of Project GIPF
is a fact. It has arrived! It exists! In these dark times it has
given me - I strictly speak for myself - something to be a bit enthusiastic
The distribution has started in Europe - read: Belgium and Germany
- and on a small scale. So it won't be easy to find it but we'll
do our best to expand the territory. The Rio Grande Games edition
will arrive in North America in about 1 month.
GIPF Set 2 will be ready for "Spiel
As you probably know by now, there will be no free DVONN-potentials
in de DVONN box. That was, unfortunately, not possible. But to let
the Project go on, they had to be made available. The only way to
make that happen was to look at it as a stew: a bit of pieces from
the left, a few boxes from the right, printing and copying at the
office, and a few volunteers to *finish* the product in the storehouse.
In other words: all ingredients are there to speak about a true
limited edition: 500 Sets, home made. It will contain 12 ZÈRTZ-potentials,
12 DVONN-potentials, and 12 extra ZÈRTZ rings. The adviced
retail price in Europe will be 10 Euro. We have good hope that the
cooking will be ready in about one month.
