Action Shots

Catherine drilling holes for the new wooden board with the drill pressCreating the second generation of the board game.  (The first generation was a piece of cardboard with holes cut in it) I showed Catherine how to use the drill press and then turned her loose to drill what seemed like 4 thousand holes!

 

 

 

 

 

Three UnPub players try out the game for the first time. A woman is reaching her hand across the board to touch her piece.The big reveal at UnPub in Baltimore!  It was a great sign when a group of players snuck in early and came straight to the table because they read about the game in the program and they wanted to be the first to play!
