I rarely re-blog from another journal on this blog, and as Blogger.com and WordPress.com blogs don’t talk to each other easily, I’ll just post a note pointing towards the recent post on Joe’s blog, Scrum in Miniature. The Fun and the Fury: Mad Maximilian 1934. This post is his short commentary on our recent Max 34 game as the September event for the Second Saturday Scrum Club. Joe is very complimentary to the game (which I appreciate). The game session was invaluable for me to get the ebb and flow of the mechanics with a group, so I could run it effectively at FALL IN this year. I posted on the event recently, myself.
One item Joe pointed out that I have missed the entire time. Eureka calls this game MAD Maximilian 1934 on their shelf displays in their booth at shows. They use the term on their website. It’s a cool name. Joe points out the rule book is called, simply “Maximillian 1934“. I honestly had never noticed it. I’m kind of surprised Mana Press felt they would get a Cease and Desist letter for a game of this scope. Shrug. I’m not changing.
I would be remiss if I didn’t repost a few of Joe’s wife Ellen’s fantastic pictures of this event. She captured the mood perfectly.
There’s a ton of good pictures on Joe’s Blog. So go there (link up top). All Photo Credit this page to Ellen Levy. Thanks, Ellen, fantastic job.
