The Metagame, the collectable card game about videogames I created with Local No. 12, has been steamrolling forward, carrying Colleen Macklin, John Sharp, and I along with it.

Over the winter holidays, we received more shipments of the game, and sold several hundred more decks. A great write-up by Kirk Hamilton in Kotaku, including a video demo of the game, certainly helped things along. (The image above is from the Kotaku piece.)

At the moment, my apartment is shipping central for the Metagame, but if this project continues we’ll probably bump it up a level and use an outside company to ship the decks for us. Sending out hundreds of card decks and posters has not been good for my living quarters.

John and Colleen and I have also been busy working on the next version of the game. Suffice to say that we may have some very cool announcements leading up to the Game Developers conference.

In the meantime, we need to sell decks! Not only so that I can get my living room back, but also because selling our current decks is how we are funding the next version of the game. Visit www.metaga/me and think about getting a Videogame Edition deck – and tell your friends too!
