Get Adler! Premium Edition is coming soon! We might even launch a Kickstarter in February. We are so encouraged by emails and reviews from customers and backers!! It really has hit the sweet spot for young and old, male and female, gamers and casual gamers. The new edition will be a slightly bigger traditional box (top and bottom) with a plastic insert to hold 2 decks of cards, new design on back of character cards, and maybe another surprise … stay tuned! R.
ps The box will be a lot thicker!

I love math! And I always did. I see math in many things and math is essential to games. In a game, such as Get Adler! Deduction Card Game the right amount of cards had to be figured out for Top-Secret Docs, Questions, Binoculars, Magnifying Glasses, Arrest Cards, Escape Cards, Pistols, Bombs and a Disguise. That’s a lot of cards.
After lots of playtesting we adjusted each card amount – to the point of perfection (I hope!). There is a reason why Adler will almost certainly get a Top-Secret card each game, which he needs to possess in order to win – yet in some games he might only have one or two and is in danger of ending the game with none. Tension! Just what we wanted.
I had a reviewer of Get Adler who recently said that Adler could possibly get no Top-Secret cards in the game. I was surprised by that comment because that has never happened in any game we or our backers/players have played. Of course, it’s always possible. But it’s highly improbable. Designers, for the most part, don’t leave these things to chance.
I head that Einstein once said, “God is not rolling the dice.” I don’t know if he said it for sure, but I love that statement. There is wonderful mathematics behind many things in creation. I also love many things about Sir Isaac Newton who was an incredible scientist and mathematician.
Do you see math in nature and life?
