I can't seem to find any actual play posts or playtesting posts with examples of play.  A search yields nothing.  Can anyone point me in the right direction?

People are kind of cagey about their Poison'd play. The best writeups I know aren't public, they're in email to me or on blogs and local forums.

Here's my writeup of a game I ran in Edinburgh: Conpulsion 2008 story 1: Poison'd
Here's Ralph Mazza's writeup of a disastrous game: Problems with Poisn'd
Here's my (controversial) writeup of a GenCon game last year: GenCon Poison'd, but you don't get the whole story

I think that Willow played and wrote about it, but I can't find her writeup. Anybody help?

Thanks Vincent.  If people are private about their play and don't wish to share I don't intend to intrude.  I'm just trying to figure out what this game is about besides Pirates.  The Poison link on your blog is dead and information seems hard to come by (in stark contrast to IaWA).  There doesn't seem to be any reviews floating around either...quit the mysterious game.

Oh hey, look at that, the link IS dead. I'll go fix it. It's supposed to go here ... which you'll still find uninformative.

I talked about the game's rules here, though: [Poison'd] A Boring Thread About Theory

And I'm always happy to answer questions.

That theory thread is somewhat informative.

In case anyone else was looking for information, I found this revealing thread on RPG.NET: http://forum.rpg.net/showthread.php?t=350453&page=5

Oh and a google search of the story-games forum was productive as well.

Looks like I'll have to pick up both Poison'd and IaWA.
