Stranglehold to Release


I've been pretty quiet about this game, because I wasn't sure if I'd get it done in time for GenCon. But I'm in the home stretch, so I'm going to jink this project by announcing it on here.

And story-games.com

Stranglehold is my new wrestling roleplaying game. And yes, I realize there are TONS of wrestling games out there (good and bad), but this is the only one that allows you to RUN a league and emulate an evening of wrestling. Instead of roleplaying a single wrestler, you are the booker who manages a stable of wrestlers, taking on the role of each during important points in the evening.

Stranglehold is about SMACKDOWN, it's not about the Hulkster.

It's the first step in my move to create more and more Macro-oriented games.

Anyway. I'm only printing 50 copies for GENCON ($20 each) and the official edition will be out by the end of the year.

More news soon.
