Hogswatch event

Postby RJH » Wed Nov 30, 2011 2:08 pm

The recent Hogswatch event held in Wincanton was attended by the guys from BackSpindle games who designed the Guards Guards board game, Leo Boyd one of the designers was good enough to do a guest post on Bricks and Books with his recap of the event, enjoy: http://bricksandbooks.co.uk/2011/wonder ... wincanton/

The boardgame got a couple of decent reviews on Amazon.uk.
Some are born great, some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon them.

The rest of us are a bit crap.

As he was one of the few who will pass into history for the Epic battle of four Dragons at Wincanton Hogswatch 2011, we are sure Jason will re-tell this fair tale shortly?

I started writing about it in my review of Hogswatch. About half way through I had a Red Dwarf moment. I felt like Rimmer re-telling his risk campaign. Then I rolled a six etc.
