Richard Williams posted this fantastic G x B replay over at UKroleplayers.com. It’s funny, well written and super informative. One of the best looks at how to play Girl X Boy and how the game works that I’ve seen!

Every now and then someone finds a copy of Ocean and decided to write a blog post, review or something about it. For a 4 year old game that almost no one bought or played it certainly manages to attract a surprising amount of attention! Anyway, Dorkadia gave it a try and the review is pretty nice. Check it out here. Oh, and we even still have some copies of the book for sale (and the pdf as well).

I’ll be at Sakuracon in Seattle this year at the Cel*Style booth (booth SP04), along with Nick Smith and maybe (cross your fingers) Matt Schlotte! We’ll have the whole Atarashi Games library available for sale and will be running games all weekend in the gaming room. My brand new thing this year is the new Magical Land of Yeld Whitebook, a full printed play test document. Nick and I are planning to release the game later this year (finally), so this will be the last playtest document release before that happens.
We’ll also have copies of Hot Guys Making Out by Ben Lehman, G x G (the all girl hack of G x B) by Michael Wight, Ewen Cluney’s new role playing game book Yaruki Zero and copies of both of my Modest Medusa books. We’re short on printed copies of Panty Explosion Perfect this year, so if you want one please get to the booth early!

The full line of Atarashi Games, including Panty Explosion Perfect, G x B, Ocean, Classroom Deathmatch, B x B and Panty Explosion Classic are now available for sale as PDF files from the Cel*Stye store.
This new line of PDF files includes Panty Explosion Classic, a re-release of the original 2006 version of the game.
As I’ve said before, I hadn’t really wanted to release PEP, GxB and the other games as PDF files because they really are meant to be held in hand and available at the game table for everyone. What’s changed is that 2 years later everyone has pads and smart phones!

Matt and I have been selling Panty Explosion for 6 years now. It’s sold very well and has fans in all parts of the world. But… every time the game is mentioned anywhere there are always people who say they hate the name, don’t understand the name or just are too embarrassed to buy the game because of the name.
Another VERY common claim, one that comes up multiple time sin every conversation about Panty Explosion, is that more people would play the game if we changed the name. “I want to try your game, but I’d never buy a book called Panty Explosion”! This has been said so many times over the years that Matt and I have guessed that there must be thousands of people who really, really want to give us their money, but won’t because they just can’t stand the name.
So here’s the simple questions:
1. Has the name Panty Explosion kept you from trying or buying the game?
2. If we changed the name would you buy the game?
