Please Help Me Win Free Lead!!!!

I know I said I wasn't going to be in again this week, but I'm desperate to win some free lead. And I need your help to do it.

Do you want to see me cry? Of course you don't. 

All you have to do to help me is Like Darwin Games Facebook page. And if you have the time, you can leave a comment with them that says "Anne O'Leary sent me" 

And what will I win you ask?


Five figures from the Floris Tribe is what I can win. And doesn't this look like something that belongs in my collection? Of course it does.

 
The game consists of 5 tribes and this one is from the Hydris Tribe. This one runs a close second for me behind the Floris Tribe. If you'd like to see all five tribes you can click on the link HERE

So why the give away? Darwin Games is preparing to launch it's first boardgame "Dawn-Rise of the Occulites" via a KickStarter later this month. This game is unique because it is based on the rules of Natural Selection as defined by Charles Darwin.  Read this brief summary written by the owner, designer and sculptor of Darwin Games, Ben Boersma:

The first game in the series “Dawn – Rise of the Occulites” is a miniatures boardgame. It is set in a time when the Occulite civilisation is just forming. Occulites travel from cave to cave in small tribes. Daily life is tough, with Sungems and territory being vital to a tribe’s ability to survive. The game features objective based skirmish gameplay and sees you steer your tribe through a fully customisable campaign, but pick up and play scenarios are also on offer. Dawn uses an innovative card based action resolution system called ‘The Natural Selection Deck’ that is easy to use but forces relevant and important decisions to be made. (Source)

So help me help Ben by visiting him at Facebook , Liking his page and checking out what he has to offer.

  4. Those figures do look like something we'd spy in your collection. The concept of the game they belong to sounds interesting and quite unique. At least, I don't think I've ever heard of anything like it.

    1. There's nothing like this out there and this guy Ben has been developing it for about three years now. He's a primary school teacher who runs his company and does the sculpts all by himself.

  32. Sounds like a pretty neat concept for a board game! It's nice to see the genre is making a comeback. Hopefully it'll bring people together again.

    Also, sorry, don't have a Facebook, so can't do much for you. ):
