Thanks, Robin.  You bring up a very good point, and have a good
suggestion about how to handle it next year.

When they described it, if it was a Looney Labs published game then we were almost always able to help them. But sometimes they described a pyramid game that we had no clue what it was. For example, one person described the game they wanted as a game where you had a volcano board and some number of pyramids, and you had to get your pyramids from one side of the board to the other. Alison and I didn't know what game that was, so we were helpless to tell the customer what to buy.
> It would be great if when teaching people fan created games that there were handouts for each game - with the name, rules, and equipment that the game needs. That way people can come to the booth with that handout and know exactly what they need to buy in order to play it. And we could have a copy of the handouts in the booth so we could look at them when trying to help someone figure out what game it is they are wanting to buy pyramids for.
