Take yer lumps

Well, it's out there now. My game. In other peoples houses. And they're playing it. And surprise, not everybody thinks its better than Monopoly. Well, except me, but I'm not a fan of Monopoly.

This is part of being a designer and a publisher. I'm sure there are people who won't play Agricola. Though apparently, they're all unstable, sociopath mutants.

One complaint that has surfaced - you don't do much when it's not your turn. I'm not sure how to take that either. It is a turn based board game. Everything from Backgammon to Yahtzee has them, and when it's not your turn you watch the other player(s) take theirs. I see it as a design challenge.

Goal Conversion

So the traffic to the official site is through the roof. This is awesome. Sales haven't scaled up accordingly however. PGE is obviously interesting, just not interesting enough.

I'm open to sugestions.
