Broadside Games Show 4th June 2022 - Anyone going?


Posties Rejects will be putting on a demo game at this years Broadside Games Show on Saturday 4th June at Medway Park Sports Centre in Gillingham.

Its BigLee's turn to put on the game this time round, I've included 2 pics in the post to wet your whistle, without completely giving the game away.
The game is called " Beau Hunks" and features my favourite comedy duo!!
 

So hopefully we'll see you there?

  3. "Beau Hunks" --- odd term even for Laurel and Hardy. I've heard it as "Bohunk", a rather demeaning American term from Central European immigrants, sort of a smash-up of Bohemian-Hungarian. In the context of the film, it's funny. Considering the time it was made, it's understandable. Not a term I'd use much today.
    I do hope your game is fun!

    1. Lee told us about the meaning of the term. I had no idea?

    2. Since I was born in a coal-mining area of Pennsylvania, lots of Slavic folks moved in at one time. Many were unskilled workers in the mines and there was prejudice against them... from the earlier waves of immigrants! (Italian, Irish, etc.) I figure there were Cornish miners at first. (My family name is a Cornish one.) My maternal grandfather was a medical doctor and worked with all the immigrant families, most of whom had to have a translator there for his visits.

    3. Until I started reading about the film I wasn't aware of the origin of the name. Some things just don't age well, but title aside, Its a cracking short film (I love Laurel an Hardy and have done since I were a nipper).

  9. Sounds interesting. Stan Laurel was born just over the Cumbrian border from here in Ulverston where statues abound, for now anyway.
