365 - New Player Perspective

Tonight we have managed to catch a bit of lighting in the bottle so to speak. We were fortunate to catch up with prospective Kings of War player Duncan Walden who found Kings of War through the Nashcon website. We were able to record with Duncan before his first demo game and he shares his experience of searching for information into Kings of war through various Websites and Facebook groups. We were then were able to record with Duncan just after he completed his very first Demo game of Kings of war. This is a unique opportunity to see Kings of War through the eyes of someone just at the beginning of their journey and I think there something we can all take away from it.
