A fannish game created by Dian Pelz and published in June 1964 as Tower Publications #2. 80 copies were produced.

It includes an instruction sheet, game board, playing pieces, eight sheets of "Fandom" cards, and four sheets each of "Gafia," "slan shack," "Imaginary World," "Convention" and "Feud" cards, all printed on 8.5x11 heavy paper.

The cards contained humorous fannish instructions -- the game was created mostly as a joke with much of the fun being reading the cards.

In the 70s, the game and the remaining copies were turned over to Lee Gold.

Many real people are mentioned:

Forrest J Ackerman Al Ashley Walter Breen G. M. Carr Kent Corey Howard DeVore Dick Eney Owen Hannifen Phil Harrell Jim Harmon Art Hayes Alma Hill Jamie Johnson Fred Patten Bruce Pelz George Nims Raybin Paul Stanberry Jimmy Warren Ted White Walt Willis
