The amount of people per square meter in Lucca exceeded by far that in Essen, which was a pretty big surprise for us, being the first time in the most important gaming convention in Italy.
We played a lot today, we have several (no one kept track) demos of Exodus and a few of Wild Fun West and Warriors & Traders. The last Italia expansion is officially sold and so are all the Warriors & Traders we brought to Italy.
Most of the NSKN team is still recovering after our second Spiel Essen. It was another great experience and we cannot wait to repeat it. We're still under the spell of the enormous crowds of people passing by, so it will take a few more days before we'll be able to describe how we feel and what's going to happen afterwards, so for now we're letting the pictures do the talking...
NSKN Legendary Games was thinking how to make something nice and useful at the same time for our fans and friends. And this is how we got to an idea of combining all the current reviews of Warriors & Traders together with previews of our future games. Not only are we giving you an easy way to find more about our games, but you can also get to know us better. Finally, you will be able to browse through reviews and YouTube videos from one checked source.
There's an elephant in the room... people noticed that there are some quality issues with Exodus and we feel it is our responsibility not to remain silent and to explain what is NSKN doing to address this issue.
The second day in Lucca Comics & Games started quite slowly, we had only one demo before mid-day and Exodus had the biggest audience. After an early lunch, the halls got really crowded and we sold-out Warriors & Traders (one last copy left from yesterday), then I gave away my only copy of Warriors & Traders: Italia and we continued playing Warriors & Traders even though people saw that there were no more copies available.
Yesterday we arrived in Lucca after spending a few hours stuck in traffic between Bologna and Florence, we went through the formalities and we started setting up the booth. It's easier to let the pictures speak for themselves...
As soon as we changed the address of the blog, the old one is no longer available. We've been trying to redirect, but it's not working. We apologize in advance to all of you who will have a hard time finding us and we're hoping that you'll still follow our blog.
" NSKN Legendary Games, in association with Italian fan site Le Tana dei Goblin, is releasing a small expansion for Warriors & Traders titled Warriors & Traders: Italia in July 2012. Warriors designer and publisher Andrei Novac said that the limited-edition expansion sold out weeks earlier than he had anticipated. As a result, he says, "NSKN is considering creating an expansion – also a limited edition of a hundred copies – to be sold exclusively at Spiel 2012 in Essen. The time is short, but we will confirm this in the summer.""
After a complex strategy game – Warriors & Traders – NSKN shifted the focus towards a simpler, fast paced fun card game. We called it Wild Wild West and you can find out more details on our prototypes page and on the page of the game on BoardGameGeek.
