This little story comes from Kevin Gordon (kevster) at Board Game Geek. It's really uplifting and really exciting as we near the release of Pixel Lincoln: The Deckbuilding Game (which I think is now on its way to the US). I can't wait for it to be in everyone's hands.
Here's Kevin Gordon's post titled "First Game I Ever Preordered." I must also mention that Kevin's avatar included an NES, an arcade cabinet and the original Gameboy. Three of my favorite things ever.
I'm honored to be able to have this kind of impact on someone. Thanks Kevin!
