Something to pique the interest of you gamer historians, as a new book telling the story of Games Workshop’s early years is looking for funding on Unbound.

The book is called Dice Men: Games Workshop 1975 – 1985, and looks at how Games Workshop started as three friends in their flat, through the trials and tribulations of the company’s origins, on to the status it would one day enjoy.

The book itself, which is being written by Jamie Thomson, Steve Jackson, and Ian Livingstone, will be a full colour, illustrated hardback of A4 size, and comes in at over 300 pages long.

The formative years of Games Workshop is a very interesting period of game history and deserves delving into. In this time where GW has become one of the largest names in the industry and new games appear regularly on Kickstarter, it is hard to imagine how it started off in a small office in Shepherd’s Bush and two guys living out of a van.

Seems this is finally ready, only 4 years after it was first advertised.
