We are Live at Q-Con today, Northern Ireland’s premier gaming and anime convention.
The BoW team gets a chat with Jake Thornton about Dwarf Kings Hold: Green Menace and we get a look at a brand new game set in Discworld… Guards! Guards!
this came kinda out of nowhere …^^
Love the live stuff guys and keep it rocking at Q-Con. Glad to have something to brighten up this utterly dreary Saturday where I am lol. Shall enjoy watching the 6:00pm show back later and seeing what other stuff you guys got up too.
Would be fantastic if you could do some coverage of the roleplaying stuff and the boardgaming as well – get a nice all round view of whats going on there
DEamn you BoW i’m stuck at home with a sick mother and father and you are off ot Q-con and doing a live feed…DEamn you BoW… DEamn you.
Are you guys going to be putting them up as re-runs for us who missed out on the update and did not get up on time?
So i put a gagdet on my windows sidebar that shows the time in london and a currency calculator for pounds and euros to USD. It’s about time, im sick of googling these all the time lol
i missed it ?
Wargamers taking the piss out of Anime fans? People in glass houses and all that..
i was the dark angel player in this tournament. lost to the tyranids (vps 349, vpl1495) getting 1p for the round.
Justin be proud of your anime Naruto headband. After all, all the asian chicks do cosplay and you never know you might just fit in. All you need is a small dog and you’ll be fighting them off.
Guards Guards was actually a very fun game, I couldn’t play the whole way through it though as I was back over to the infinity tables. The first thing I did was get the pox. I was the thieves guild and was first to run my spell run, anfter that I got hit by luggage and was third to start my second spell run. Then with a huge amount of bad luck I managed to not recruit three people in a row. I did pick up a spell and played my guild power. Really nice detail in the types of game play. My spell was -2 to all d8 rolls on a certain player. I chose the guy who had been rolling 1′s all the time just for a laugh.
I’m really proud of the Tyranid performance, I know one of them was from Dublin and I had beat him before, and he placed 8th after the first day. The other two Nid players drew each other on the third round, and that match was a really pleasure to watch, That game came down to Deployment and poor out flanking to win. The other nid player placed 11th after the first day. I didn’t catch up with the 3rd nid player so I presume he was running more mid field position. I also know that after the first day Nids were place 4th as an army.
I played a game of infinity with Jake Thornton. We were setting up the game and a little girl comes over with Dwarfs kingshold, and he signed it for her. It was a nice moment of realisation for me, This is a game designer. Needless to say he wooped me good and proper using my army. Even though he’d only played first edition he still knew the rules and picked up the new rules like a pro. He’s a really nice guy, likes writing rules for fun. A pleasure to play against.
You would not believe how much it cost me to get him to say that
Seriously though, Q-Con was fun – I think reganspor just let me win though – great sales technique
