It’s been a while since Catapult Kingdoms got its first outing at Essen and I think I’ve just about recovered now!
I had hoped to share these pics with you much sooner, I just needed the 5 minutes to get them all uploaded and a few extra minutes to write about the incredible experience.
First of all, I MUST thank Vesuvius Media for not only paying for me to be there but also for giving me some of their precious booth table room to turn from a more relaxed, sit down and think space into the boulder dodging battlefield if very soon became.
It was my privalidge to be there over the weekend and I hope that next year the Kingdoms and I will return with more bricks, weapons, troops, expansions… and plenty more boulders!
I certainly learned plenty from what became a non-stop play fest over the two days, one of which was – if only for conventions – to create much brighter boulders that are a little easier to find when launched over a your neighbours booth… and their neighbours too!
Secondly, I would like to thank each and every person who stopped by to play, ask about the game and, especially, the many that joined the mailing list! Think I doubled the list in the two days I was there! I am utterly humbled by the amount of positivity and joy that was brought to the table as people returned for another turn – and another. The fact that CK is so easy to understand meant that we quickly bridged any language barriers as kids (‘big’ and small) battled over the table.
