I recently got sent some pics of Leviathan actually being played back in 1998 at a demo run at Gen Con!
It was during the brief appearance of Leviathan 2nd edition which saw a new rulebook with spiral binding and metal tokens. I have fuzzy memories of there being a box set released for it with some resin and metal figures.
Sadly one of the boxes went up for sale in the late 90's but I didn't buy it and I've never seen it since but if anyone has a copy of the spiral bound 2nd edition, I'd love to get my hands on it!
A mighty thank you to David Drage for sending the pics of the epic looking game! The project was originally organised by Mike McLean of Asylum Books and Games in Aberdeen and I'd love to speak to anyone else who remembers it.
Hopefully my next update will include some pics of my painting progress too so watch this space!
In the meantime, All the best!
