Hi Ken -

Thanks for the review. I have really seen a lot of traffic since you put in all the links. What a difference the Game Cabinet means to us. I have already received an order for one. Our first since the Norns website was put up.

Allow me to do some nit-picking for a second. You hit the nail right on the head as a review on Norns as a two player game - casual. The inspiration for Norns came from the restriction of two players in Pente'. I really like games with multiple players and when I became enchanted with Pente' I wanted to get more people around the table. If you have the chance play Norns with three or more. That's when Norns really comes into its own. We have had eight people playing and that's when we decided to bring Norns to market. The table talk was uproarious and to our amazement the game went on for an hour and a half.

I felt I had to call this to your attention, because you might have overlooked this important reason for us wanting to share Norns with the world. For two players play Pente', but if you're having a game party it's Norns - a whole different game.

Congradulations on your second anniversary!

I'll be in touch,
