UnspecifiedWelcome...to my Shed!
Today it's all about me, oh yes! Having missed out in 2015, I finally get my Christmas Wish:
As soon as I knew that Guilds of London was rolling through the Panda printing presses, I was straight on to Matthias at Frosted Games and offering to design some exclusive tiles for it! In reality, there was already, in one of my work notebooks, the scribblings born of a particularly dull 'team progress meeting' that would do very nicely indeed: 2nd place tile-based rewards. On their own, however, that's not really enough of a prize for having to spend pairs of cards to get a liveryman on them so I added the 'Lord Mayors Parade' bonus of choose your Guild's colour too. If you're unlucky, you might get a double 1VP offering - in which case that Guild may remain unloved for the entire game (not even worth stealing for the colour choice option!) BUT, conversely, how about 8VP? Or, when the expansion comes out, some even juicier 2nd place token bonuses? Proud of myself, I mocked 'em up in Powerpoint and drafted an email...hovering over [Send], I realised - in a moment of reverse dolly-ing horror that the treasures of the Cheese- and Paper-Makers could be rudely undone by those evil neutral liverymen and the No Abstainers Allowed icon provided the final protection.
I've been sitting on these tiles for most of the year, so it's fantastic for them to finally see the light of day: more icing (frosting!) on the tasty cake that's been Guilds of London's 2016!
Finally, something stirringly medieval:
