Boardgames Pre-order Coupon

As you may be aware, I've recently been illustrating a bunch of board and card games for Minion Games and we're excited to announce that they'll be coming out next month! 'Those Pesky Humans', 'Nile', 'Sturgeon', and 'Legitimacy' are all on a boat to the US right now. We should have them in hand late July 2010.

I developed the game of 'Legitimacy' from the ground up so it's 100% pure ground Chuck - it features seven hexagonal board tiles and a deck of 68 fully-illustrated cards. I also had a very free hand in creating the art and setting the tone for 'Those Pesky Humans' - it's absolutely packed full of pesky pieces, with over 200 cards, counters, board-tiles and other components. Both these games are guaranteed to appeal to Pewfell fans, both in terms of art and humor.

As a reader of this blog, you're entitled to a 10% off and FREE SHIPPING coupon to use if you pre-order any of these products on the Minion Games website : - just enter "PREORDER" at the checkout screen once the item(s) are in your cart.

Minion Games will also be attending Origins next week with a few demo copies to teach people how to play the games. There should be demo people in the board game room but if you can't find any stop by their booth #845!
