Hi all. I'm writing here to provide a recap of today's Bridge Troll Release Event here at Game Night Games in Salt Lake City.

First off, we had a display of Bridge Troll up near the front entrance with a demo of the game set out:



As you can see, we had some actual "Trolls" on hand for the event:



We had members of the Board Game Designers Guild (BGDG) on hand to help teach people how to play the game:



Alf was also here signing copies of the game:



We had a huge turn-out and by the end we were completely sold out of Bridge Troll (i.e. about 40 copies).

Thanks to everyone who came and to the members of the BGDG who were on hand to lend their support and help demo games.

Does (Top Promoter) subliminal (Top Promoter) advertising (Top Promoter) really (Top Promoter) work?

This is a good game Alf. I picked it up at Origins and have played it twice. Second time went a lot smoother since I didn't have to learn the rules while playing!

Thank you, Justin! Yes--the first time playing Bridge Troll is a bit like learning to drive a stick shift or one's first ride on a bike. There is quite a lot to take in all at once--much more than a cute game about trolls might suggest at first glance. I much appreciate your picking up the game at Origins and hope you keep having fun with it!

I haven't played the game yet, but excited to try it. Your store has a fantastic vibe, and the designer's guild seems to be a very supportive group.
