It is fair to say that Tolkien gave us one of the best loved and most inspiring fantasy worlds ever. Known pretty much all over the world and with millions of devoted followers, it is not surprising that it has reached pretty much any medium from the original books to cinema and, of course, tabletop games.
Still, when you get your game and everything from the moment go is a success, and there are barely any hiccups… boy it’s worth it! That’s exactly what happened to me with The Road to Canterbury after I backed it in Kickstarter.
Medieval times sucked. Make no mistake. Living in the middle ages was horrible horrible horrible. For starters you didn’t have boardgames, role playing games and barely a few card games. Social Security was a joke. Public transport was atrocious. The tax system total chaos. Oh, and Internet connection was just not right. Not nice!
