My Stage II reprint yearly appeal
I played Stage II again. It did not go over well, because the cards are even more brutal with the passing of a few more years. (In fact, of the 15 themes we tried, exactly 3 people solved any of them, and one person solved exactly one). Since I love the game, but am too lazy to go about republishing it, some thoughts.
Have you considered that this would make a hell of an app? A single version could show the questions and answers (pass the phone around) and keep score, or if each player had the app you could buzz in? You could also download more themes, and have specialized games. (You couldn’t use the name, but the rules aren’t patentable).
I’m tempted to start making up more cards. This won’t help me (I can hardly play with my own cards) but if everyone starts making their own cards to read … well…). I suppose if I got a big enough group I could kickstart a printing of them and people could play.
