First written version of the rules. Formidable.
Fresh from the oven: Empire pieces.
Version 1 of the board, crisp and clean, free of fag burns, alcohol stains and blood.
Printing money. Lovely money.
Half the rules were taped to pieces of furniture. Jesus watched over us.
To ensure an unbroken testing regime, we locked a team of testers in our basement and forced them to play by candlelight 24 hours a day.
The look of FEAR which would become so familiar to all of us over the next 2 years.
A study in despair and elation.
Back when we were still friends - before the first game was played.
