Back from Salute 2015



Back from Salute...on my way to work...

So just one picture of our game...more to come when I have the time to fix the pictures:)

I also want to say a BIG thak you to:

Jan, that built the stunning terrain, working late nights the last weeks to get it all finished, the last touch was made in the Salute arena on the morning while we set it all up:)

Colin and Tony that dressed up in medieval costumes and did an exellent job in crowd controling aroud our game, they are really good in Swedish history now, at least about the events in Stockholm 1392;)

Jesper, my club mate that decided to help out to run the game, did a greate work in giving the players a good game during all day I wouldn´t have managed without the help.

Thanks to you all for all 4 for the work you put in the project.

AND a special thank you to all that visited us at Salute and some even participated !

I hope you liked it. I didn´t have time to chat with you all, sorry for that, was quite bussie to run the game, but so, so fun:)

last a picture of my small Salute haul

  3. Hi Michael,

    It was great to meet you at last and yes, you are very tall (at least to me!)/

    Brilliant game, I've got some good pics that I could send over to you that will be appearing on my Just Add Water and La Journeee Blog. I've got your e-mail address I believe, if not I'll ask you for it on LAF.

  4. I'm so sorry that I missed your game. Ity's always the way with Salute - no matter how many times you think you've wandered around and seen everything, when you get home you remember that you missed things. I even forgot to go to the Perry stand! From the pics I've seen the game looks terrific.

    Best wishes

    Giles

    1. Greate to here that bloggens liked our work, or should I say Jan's work with a truly impresive terrain. It was indeed mighty fun to be there and run the game.

  10. Glad to have met you Michael, it was a long day and just helping Simon gave me an insight into the tremendous effort that goes on in the run up to the day. I didn't get much chance to see anything though yours was a game I made sure I saw early on and thanks for taking 5 to come and see us. That's a few bloggers who I've put faces to names now.

  11. Sorry I missed your game and meeting you Michael. It was absolutely hectic, my focus was on the trade stands. I only managed to see two games very briefly and then run out of time. I am glad it went well for you.
