Grindhouse Games have posted a new blog entry with photos of the first physical copies of the Incursion board game which has been delivered.
From their website:
We dreamed a little dream.
This morning, at about 9:30 am, Jenni called me and said “it’s here”. Almost two years after this mad quest for the Incursion started, “it’s here”. Unfortunately I was stuck in client hell at my real job and couldn’t open the fedex box of the advance copy for two whole hours!
I couldn’t even bring myself to open the shrink wrap but all of my supportive colleagues at Alamo Architects were gathered around and made me do it :-). It’s fantastic people, simply fantastic. It took two months of trading paper and stock samples and discussing print sheen and paper tooth and weight and coatings and durability planning and lots of really technical dialogue about pre-press stuff. Don’t tell anyone but I sent “Age of Conan” to the manufacturer as the “match this or do better” starting point ;-). IMO, it’s better! This sucker is heavy. It clocks in at about 4 pounds: the stock is all that thick. The silky sheen is magnificent.
