The Footprint Game

It’s time to make a splash! Let’s work together and get people talking about The Novel Matrix.

Earn points for helping to spread the word. Everybody with ten or more points wins.

The most points gets first pick from the prize pile. I’ll move down the list from most to least points to allow you to choose a prize. Everybody with at least ten points will receive something cool.

This is just for fun. Let’s not take it too seriously. No need to get the gaming commission involved, am I right?

Game ends on July 31, 2024. To report your points, just send Brad an email.
