Over the past couple of years, a group of Mac card sharks from around the world have been meeting online each evening to play card games from Mac game developer

A couple of months ago some of the players began planning the first “Freeverse Union,” a plan to bring the card players together to play face to face. They booked a hotel in Chicago, Illinois, printed t-shirts and spread the word. This weekend, about 24 people, (one from as far away as the Netherlands), will finally meet for a few drinks and a few hands of Bridge, Cribbage, Hearts and Spades.
“I’m sometimes asked if making games is as much fun as playing them,” Colin Lynch Smith of Freeverse said (he’s going to the Freeverse Union). “The short answer is ‘no,’ but this kind of gathering shows better than anything else why we do it — and, in particular, why we do it for the Mac.”
Besides card games, Freeverse also handles such Mac compatible games as Wipeout 2097 and Airburst.
