Interesting Interactions from GenCon

We love Gen Con.  We sell a lot of games, meet a lot of people, and generally have fun playing games (our own and others)!  Of course, a whole bunch of people played a whole bunch of Red Dragon Inn this summer at Gen Con, including at our (in)famous RDI Doppelganger Tournament.  Two rules situations came up which were very interesting, so I thought I should share them here.

Playtesting at Black Diamond Games

On Monday November 7th Cliff Bohm (SFG), Sam Waller (SFG), and Aldo Ghiozzi (Impressions) sat down at Black Diamond Games in Concord, CA for a few rounds of playtesting.
