The perfect gift for the gamer in your life (or their parents!)

In Uncategorized on November 15, 2013 at 11:06 am

BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND!

I’d love to sign and personalize a paperback copy of the New York Times bestseller Reality is Broken: Why Games Make Us Better and How They Can Change the Worldand write a special message inside to anyone you want. I’ll customize the message  — tell me their favorite game, or their aspirations (are they studying to be a game designer or hope to be one? are they working on a game for change right now?), or a tongue-in-cheek message (one I’m often asked to write: “Your mom finally admits that you were right! Keep gaming!”) Just be sure to tell me their name, and if they’re a gamer, a game designer (or aspiring), a parent of a gamer, a teacher, anything that will make it more personal.

I will ship to you (for wrapping), or if you want me to ship to the gift recipient, I will send it straight on and include a hand-written note explaining who the gift is from (e.g. “To John From Mom”, or “To Mom from John”). Let me know if I should mark the outside of the package “Do not open until [HOLIDAY]!” 🙂

BONUS: I’ll include a limited edition Fiero! monster pin with each autographed book. (“Fiero” is a gamer emotion explained on page 33 of the book…)

Sample fiero monster:

And if you’re really feeling the love for your gamer this year, why not include a copy of the classic gaming documentary G4M3RS, also signed and personalized by the Emmy-Award nominated director? (who just happens to be my husband — details below!)
