Short MotG test & CraftStudio

On Saturday night I ran a short test of Master of the Grid, my MMO trivia game show side-project (unrelated to CraftStudio). It was tons of fun, about 20 people quickly filled up the grid and we played 3 rounds together. Dan Dias came out as the overall Master of the Grid with 5.299.580 sparkleys (= points)!

I’m not exactly sure where I’m going with this game yet (especially in terms of how it could bring any revenue) but it’s an exciting adventure anyway!
