    All,

    I am looking for a member who has played Megaland from Red Raven Games, preferably for a library program/event. They are one of the sponsors for this years IGM and this is the game they are donating copies of for our give away. You can be entered into a drawing if you are a US library and register for IGM (details on the site: International Games Month). But in return for their generous donation we would like to feature a blog post talking about this game, and I haven't played it.

    So if you have played this game before, especially if you have used it in your library I would love to hear from you.

    Thanks,
    George

    Chair of the IGM committee, and Treasurer of GameRT

    Great Jessica

    Thanks. Since this will end up in the blog you know more of the guidelines. I'll check the email on Monday to see if they want to review the draft before we post it.
