So, I won the design contest for The Duke‘s Gen Con Tournament Tile. This tile will be given away to all who participate in the Tournament at Gen Con. I’m pretty excited about this as I’m really loving the game so far and now I will have an official game piece I designed! Pretty cool if you ask me.
The tile is called the Swashbuckler and it was created with the thought of Errol Flynn, Pirates of all sorts, Captain Jack Sparrow and especially The Princess Bride. The tile jumps in from on high off a chandelier or the top of a staircase, lands next to an opponent and with a flick of his rapier or main-gauche, he strikes the enemy down or sidesteps to prepare to leap again. The light side tile is left handed, while the dark tile is right handed, evoking the famous battle in The Princess Bride (which is one of my wife’s favorite movies).
I hope all of you who play The Duke enjoy the Swashbucklers as they get into your hands at Gen Con.
Dungeon Heroes arrived today from Gamelyn Games and it looks very nice. This one actually shipped early, which is news for any Kickstarter project these days. I’ll get more information up later, I just wanted to get some pics up so it could be seen. Seen here are the main game, Dungeon Heroes, the two in one Expansion Dragon and the Damsel and Lords of the Undead, along with the Kickstarter exclusive d6’s. It looks like everything from the expansions will fit in the main box making it nice to travel with and keep together.
So I got my The Duke from Catalyst Game Labs the other day and I am impressed. The quality alone was well worth the price of admission. I’m just waiting for my leather playing surface to come in and then I will have another Kickstarter off the list.
Really happy to have backed this one, it may have had some delays but this game is top notch. Can’t wait to get a few solid plays in.
Now it’s time to practice for the Gen Con Tournament! By the way, if you backed this one, there is a contest going on to pick the Gen Con Tournament Tile. I voted for the Swashbucklers…wink, wink, nudge, nudge.
