During July, we drove across the country to our new home, waited for our stuff to catch up with us and have been unpacking ever since.
So, not a month where Print and Play was a high priority, let alone a possibility. I didn’t even see the printer or the laminator or the paper cutter for most of the month.
However, I did include laminated card sheets for Palm Island in my travel stuff. I wanted to make sure I could make something in July.
More than that, I wanted to make sure that I made something that meant something to me. I wanted to make something that I knew was a game I enjoy playing, which means making a game I’ve already played.
Actually, I’ve made at least three copies of Palm Island since I’ve worn copies out. Palm Island wasn’t my introduction to In Hand games (That was actually the nine-card version of I Am Lynx. Which made me track down Palm Island) but I do think it’s one of the best In Hand games and helped create a whole new template of them.
Truth to tell, I have other laminated card sheets packed away so I will be able to make more games for the next few months if I pace myself. By then, I’ll have a sense of what my new Print and Play habits will be.
