From the computer to the tabletop, this is all about games. Updated each week-end.
Over on Unbound (that’s yet another crowdfunding website to you and me) there’s a book covering Games Workshop’s early years history. This books takes the reader from the company’s 1975 founding through to 1985.
Given then short time span you can expect a fair amount of detail, and judging from the excerpt below, a certain amount of flair:
1976. Steve and Ian wake with a start. It’s the rain, drumming onto the top of their van, as if a huge Ogre right out of a D&D game was using their roof as a drum-kit (Drums of Thunder, +6). It was another day working in their Uxbridge Road office. And yes, that’s right, they lived in a van. Van Morrison, as they called it, where they’d been sleeping for a while now, alongside all the boxes of games and Dungeons and Dragons and stock they couldn’t fit into their office.
