(Kept in Memory of Spyros Koumousis)
then new rules, figures, and city blocks for B'hoys! ,
the game/simulation of the historical Gangs of New York,
debuted at HistoriCon on Friday, July 25, 2003.
of intrigued observers paused at the table to admire the large display
of B'hoys Towne
on which both the demo games were to be played. Encouragingly,
the Players expressed great enjoyment, and most proved their sincerity
by purchasing the rules and/or Bobby Jackson's unbeatable B'hoys!
figures in the Dealers' Room.
the first game was winding down, 0fficials from the Convention
awarded the game a
for its unique visual appeal,
based on the comment the layout had caused.
As co-Author and
Games Master of the event, your Reporter had no idea the Award had any
significance until so informed later! Indeed, no special effort had
been made to make "B'hoys Towne" look to be any more than
it is. Given the 500+ games at HistoriCon, and so many on all subjects
that were, to this observer, far more impressive visually, the honor
won by "B'hoys Towne" is all the more gratifying.
to express thanks to Richard Houston
who assembled the layout, and to those whose enthusiastic response caught
the attention of the Judges who so honored these models. This is a great
spur and encouragement to continue providing the several new cardstock
projects on all subjects already in the works. Thank You, HistoriCon,
