I give you details on the new Discworld board game, Guards! Guards!, which will premier in the U.S. at NADWCon.
Illustrations for the game were created by artist Stephen Player, a long time Discworld fan, who will be with us in Wisconsin. He currently teaches at the School of Illustration in San Francisco.
Stephen Player was born in England in 1965. He acquired a first-class honors illustration degree in London in 1985. Since then, Stephen has enjoyed a thriving freelance career. His work has been used in advertising, television, film, promotion, and over one hundred books. These books are mostly in the sci-fi, fantasy, horror, and children's genres, as well as graphic novels. Stephen is a winner of the British Sci-Fi and Fantasy Association Award, received a Substantial Contribution to Children's Literacy Award, and received a Sheffield Children's Book Award. Stephen has been exibited widely across Europe. He has been teaching at Academy of Art University since 2001.
