Something I’ve been meaning to do for a while — I just added 4 pages to the Light Bikes booklet, including new optional rules we’ve been playtesting, and the step-by-step instruction (with photos!) on the best way to build light walls. Also included is the Spinnaker graphic, for those looking to generate movement without dice. And it’s still only 99¢ — just click here

I also didn’t have easy access to the laser one needs to do all the cutting and etching — but someone out there did, and they’ve now made a light cycles set that literally glows:
Took Light Bikes to Spring Fever last week, and got in three big games during the convention’s first day.
Light Bikes made its convention debut at Cold Wars 2011, with a good run of five games (thanks too to the organizers for putting me in the lobby on Friday afternoon, ensuring that anyone coming into the Lancaster Host would walk by our setup.) The photos below are from a Saturday pick-up game with some old friends, and a couple of new converts.
Although the Light Bike rules come with suggestions (a half-dozen of them in fact) on how to build your own light walls, I’ve been getting requests for detailed instructions on how I built my own setup. So, here they are.
