Beyond the Books: Next Steps for Do: Pilgrims of the Flying Temple and Happy Birthday Robot!
It's been a while since the news that Do and Happy Birthday Robot would be going out of print. We're working to set up our files for print-on-demand for those who still want to get their hands on a physical copy, but any new hardcover copies are not planned for the foreseeable future.
Beyond the books, I've been thinking about whether either brand would be a good candidate to enter the burgeoning storytelling board game market. In particular, Do may be well-served by converting many of the mechanics into card components. I can see a deck of cards expediting several parts of the storytelling process without changing any of the core rules.
But would a direct port of Do into a card game be a worthy endeavor or should a Do card game be its own unique thing? Still set in the same universe, of course, but with entirely different mechanics more akin to a co-op strategy game? Happy to hear your thoughts on the matter!
