I imagine Bawb asking everyone if their wife is a "goer" and if she's into "photography" and such.

It just occurred to me that I'm reading all your posts in an American accent.

Hmmm.

Perhaps you could try using spelling more phonetically reflective of your actual pronunciation?

And I was hearing "Would haf to beh dooble sized".

Or would that be Huw?

New out of Heritage Games, after a public FB meltdown from the original designer

Quote
OFFICIAL COMPANY ANNOUNCEMENT:
Mr. Berg unfortunately did not complete Conquistador or do any work after his initial rules submission. Even after he was advanced money. We made repeated attempts for almost 2 years to work with him creatively. I doubt that any game company would have had the patience or understanding that my staff has went through in all of this. It almost destroyed our fledgling company.
I have continued to work on the game (while this was going on) to being about 98% complete. And, still intend on releasing it at some point. Since, playtesting is giving me very favorable results. And, that was the only way it was going to get done. I believe we have a good game reminiscent of the old game. But, none of it is Mr. Berg's anymore. Not a single sentence, card, bibliography, designer notes or map are his.
Also, due to this we are cancelling all of Mr. Berg's titles under contract. And, they will be removed from our sites ASAP. We wish him the best of luck and really did wish that it could have worked out.

That's quite the pedigree - a criminal, forced to resign as a lawyer for his actions, going back to 1988.

I'd love to see the wheels of justice sweep him up on this one, but I doubt Kickstarter fraud is on the top of many LEO's lists - there are higher priorities.
