By Fire and Sword Premiere
The premiere of By Fire and Sword Rulebook took place at the Royal Castle
in Warsaw during the Historical Book Fair. We arrived at the fair on Thursday,
24th of November, and the premiere took place on Saturday,26th of November.
From the very beginning our stand drew a lot of visitors of the fair. Our stand was unique as
visitors were able not only to have a look at wargaming rulebooks but also lead armies,
prepared by us, to victory.
On Saturday those who preordered the rulebook could pick it up from the creators
of the game - Konrad Sosiński and Rafał Szwelicki, along with the special figures set of
characters from the Trilogy by Henryk Sienkiewicz. One of them was the unique figure
of Jan Onufry Zagłoba, available only at the fair.
Our stand was very popular until the end of the fair on Sunday, 27th of November. Thanks
to this we were able to teach a huge number of people how to play By Fire and Sword.
Thank you for arriving at the premiere in such numbers!
