trading one iso for another iso

I don't know if this was the intention with putting Innovation of isotropic, but man is it GENIUS.  What site is popular with THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE playing daily?  Dominion isotropic.  What site is being shut down soon due to an official online verion?  Dominion isotropic.  What are these thousands of people going to do when dominion isotropic goes down?  They are going to look for new ways to spend there time.  A logical replacement is either Dominion on Goko or Innovation on isotropic.  Given the public response to Goko, I'd wager that many people will give Innovation a try (including me).  And if anyone is like me they will quickly fall in love with Innovation and end up buying the game.

I haven't started playing innovation yet (haven't even made it completely through the rulebook) but I'm gonna throw this phrase out there now and see if it happens....

Level 40 or Bust!

See ya guys on isotropic

Yeah, there was the whole thing about Carl Chudyk being "the man who said no to Goko" not long ago. And now, at the time when Goko is forcing the closure of a very popular and active gaming platform for Dominion, Carl Chudyk's game gets released on that very platform. Seems to me to be a very good idea for business and I would not be surprised if this implementation was more Carl's idea than Dougz's. In fact, I wouldn't be surprised if Dougz was offered money to implement Innovation (although I expect he would turn such an offer down, as he doesn't seem to do these things for money).

This is all, of course, baseless speculation. Do not quote me on any of it.

I actually sent lautapelit.fi (a Finnish board game publisher) a message in which I told them that I wish them to get the rights to publish a Finnish version of Innovation so that I can purchase it and play it with people who don't understand English, all because of Isotropic. Well they replied that they are not currently planning to publish Innovation in Finnish, but it was worth trying.

Sorry, I quoted you anyway.  :P

Carl Chudyk wasn't the guy who said no to Goko.  Chris Cieslik was.  He posts here as "AngelKurisu," I believe.

Chris C. is to Asmadi Games as Jay Tummelson is to Rio Grande Games.  Jay was the guy who had to say yes to Goko, and Chris was the guy who said no.

Errr... yeah. Their names are very similar to me and I get confused :(

It's all good.  I just thought I should clarify.  Chris Cieslik publishes Innovation, but Carl Chudyk was the game's designer.  Donald X. is to Dominion as Carl Chudyk is to Innovation.   :P

Unfortunately I promised my real life friends that I wouldn't play much innovation online so that I wouldn't get any better.

I'm still curious about how Innovation ended up on isotropic.  Who approached whom?  That sort of thing.

Hah, my friend jokingly claimed that the worse you are at this game, the more likely you are to win!

Doug approached me, although I secretly had a crush on Isotropic Dominion for a long time.

Third grade style <3!

That doesn't surprise me.  I know there's some debate out there over whether Inno or Dominion is better suited to the Iso platform, but there is not a doubt in my mind that Inno is very well-suited.

I still wish to see EmDo on Isotropic.  I could probably even the game mechanics!  Alas, if wishes were horses, we'd all be eating "beef."

I actually tried Innovation now that dominion is down, and it is quite awesome. Currently more fun than Goko  :'(

Pardon me if it sounds a bit presumptive of me to speak up here, but "AngelKurisu" is in fact Chris Cieslik (sp?) of Asmadi Games.  His relationship to Innovation is similar to Jay Tummelson's relationship to Dominion, i.e. he publishes the game that Carl Chudyk designed.  I believe Chris has done some design work of his own (e.g. "We Didn't Playtest This Game" et. al), but as Innovation's North American publisher, Chris gave DougZ the go-ahead to implement Inno on Iso.

Anything you'd like to add and/or correct here, Chris?  Or did I about cover it?

I got the same thing from my fiancee.  :(

Love Iso Innovation though, and purchased the game last week to play IRL. WTG everyone involved!

Yes, I run Asmadi Games, and helped Carl develop Innovation into the awesomeness that it became. 

I am hugely in favor of this implementation's existence.  It's great to be able to play the game cleanly and quickly online!

Iello I believe plans to release a digital version at some point, but they're in Europe so I'd like to think this version will be unaffected.

Any chance you can get Carl onto here as well?  :-)  Do some secret histories, answer some design questions, etc.

I don't speak for Chris Cieslik or Asmadi games. 

That being said, I think the circumstances are vastly different.  The licensing for Dominion was done by language, as it is for most games.  In other words, RGG gets the license to publish all english-language versions of Dominion regardless of where they are released.  Innovation, on the other hand, was licensed by region.  The Iello English-language version is sold to retailers in Europe, primarily the UK, while Asmadi handles the first-level distribution in (North?) America.

It begs credulity, as far as I'm concerned, that Chris would want to do anything to jeopardize the IsoInno that he himself helped implement, but who knows?  As I said at the beginning of the post, I don't speak for him.  I'm just excited that Iso lives and I have my tabletop coppy of Inno.  :)
