The Evil One Comic Book And Board Game Content

Something a little different in celebration of The Evil One being licenced to RedDeer Games, they have a comic book and board game contest that you might want to have a look at...

Having secured a 20-year licence for The Evil One, by Leopold Tyrmand, RedDeer Games are going to town by offering YOU a chance to create a comic book and/or board game for their latest contest.

For the deets on the upcoming game, you can read about it here.

And that’s your lot. Go check out those links and get designing if this sounds good to you. Do note that I’m merely reporting the PR I received – I’m not affiliated with this in any way, nor can I answer any questions you have. Perhaps “Where do babies come from?”, as I’ve seen a video.
