Just got back the redesigned cards from the printers. They are so easy to handle when playing and look good as well. What more do you want for a good robust game.

The cards need to be tough as this card game can be no holds barred with no notion of taking turns.

From someone who has had more than their fair share of failed attempts by staff to get blood out for testing this sounds like a great medical advance to me. On the flip side it does raise issues about how well it could be set up for the farming of humans.

Saw this documentary last night on the ABC 4Corners program in Australia. Its one thing to read about it but another thing to see it.  Just watch it.

What a fantastic way of making the cost of testing so cheap and so flexible in terms of conditions of use that its really, really useful.
