The flare coming from Mars.... Tripods! begin their journey to earth.


I've just placed the order for the first batch of Tripods! the board game, scary but exciting times for me... had to check a hundred times to make sure there were no typos! The estimated shipping date is April 11th so should be here in plenty of time for the UK Games Expo, even given Custom's principle of holding stuff for ages!

The Martians are coming!!!! For real this time!

That's right folks, those of you who've been following for a while might remember Tripods! the board game we've been developing for some time over at what's now called Oakbound Games. Well, now you can buy this exciting survival game and take to the streets of Victorian London as you attempt to save the population from the wicked Martians intent on sucking out your bodily fluids through a straw!

We're having a limited print run of these games produced and are expecting to sell out, so to avoid disappointment place your order now. The games should be ready to dispatch by mid May. You can grab yourself a copy at

the Oakbound Games website

where you can also have the opportunity to add your own handiwork to the game (and win a fabulous Tripods! t-shirt) by entering our Meeple Designing competition.

New THE WOODS artwork for Oakbound Games


The first six pieces of artwork are done! Only another 60 to go... fortunately most of them are already drawn out and just waiting for the colouring in. Here we have a Pech, Leprechaun, Redcap, Fae Walker, Gnomic Engineer and Kelpie. Greens for three of these are already done, in fact the Kelpie is already available for purchase from the Oakbound Miniature shop. With any luck we should be on target to launch on May 1st.
