A Penny For My Thoughts

Looking for up-to-date info on Penny? Visit The Orphic Institute for Advanced Studies for information and purchasing links. The information below is preserved for historical purposes.

“You’re suffering from a form of global amnesia, a rare case of total memory loss. Your only hope of recovery lies with a group of people with the same condition and with Mnemosyne, an experimental drug that allows other people access to your memories. Will you be able to help each other remember?

“Will you want to?”

A Penny For My Thoughts was my entry in the Game Chef 2007 competition. While it didn’t win, it did garner some very positive feedback. To that end, I’ve decided to continue down the path toward publication. Currently, I’m working on refining the ashcan edition, which was available at GenCon 2007 through the Ashcan Front.

I’m between drafts right now, but I expect to be releasing an open beta version somewhere soon. You can find previous drafts below, but there’s been a lot of changes since then. Announcements about the project will be made on the Gameslinger Enterprises website.
