Must See: Dragonchess!

Breaking Greyhawk news: Grendelwulf over at Axe & Hammer has posted a must see project that should impress any hardcore Greyhawk fan. He is undertaking the creation of a three-tiered Dragonchess game as designed by Gygax in Dragon Magazine #100. Needless to say this is something I'd never have the patience to try, so I'm looking forward to living vicariously through Grendelwulf on this one. Good luck!

Addendum: I did a quick search and I never knew this, but there is a Dragon Chess boardgame out there in publication that from the looks of it has absolutely NOTHING to do with Gygax's version. There is no way the creators of this boardgame could not have heard of EGG's chess variant. Must be why its spelled with two words instead of one.

R'uh R'oh! I'm committed now! :)

Thanks for the shout out. I figured my SWMBO has been having me do enough DIY stuff, it's time I used my Home Depot for me.

Really looking forward to seeing the end product of this endeavor. My best for Grendelwulf's success!

Grendelwulf: Don't sweat it. I'm more keen on the Armies of Oerth stuff actually, but anything GH related these days is a cause to get excited.
