Welcome...to my Shed!

The designer’s name is ‘Green’ and it’s spelled fine in the rulebook but - hey! - misprinted on the front cover?! Imagine my horror should Ivor the Engine have rolled off the presses with ‘Tiny Boydell’ or ‘Pete Firmin’ or, Lord love us, ‘Mallfilms’ on the box! Useless.

You may remember that time I opened a new copy of Extra! Extra! and the rotten glue stink nearly asphyxiated me? Didn’t anyone notice the stench on the proof copies or did something shit in the ink feeders on ‘run day’? Hopeless.

(Clarification: this next bit is not specific to a particular game) Bland theme? Naff art? Shoddy components? Lazy proofreading? Zero marketing? Defaulting on royalties? We may be entering a Golden Age of gaming but there's still enormous scope for amateur hour, eyes-on-the-profit bigger than their stomach-to-put-the-effort-in (so-called) "publishers" to really fuck up a Designer's dreams. Disgraceful.
