I'm Andrew Thornway.

After working in the publishing industry for a number of years, I got round to getting my own book out last year - it's called Rispin Quill, The Dragon Tongue. It's hardly a number one best seller, but then people who do read it seem to enjoy it, which is great.

I've recently created a card game called Mayhex! [Outbreak on KEMBALT-39] while taking a break from writing the second part of The Dragon Tongue. (I came up with the concept, have drawn all the artwork for the cards and written the background story for the game.)

Mayhex! is an original, fun, space station based zombie survival card game for two or more players (ages 13+), so quite a different style of writing and artwork for me, which has been very time consuming, however it's also been a great deal of fun. (Especially playtesting.)

Fingers crossed I'll find the time to complete / release part two of Dragon Tongue next year.

Thanks for reading this and I wish you well!

I really enjoyed both versions as well. Makes a change - I really hope Gravity lives up to the hype.

If you do like card games, please check out my Kickstarter.

The game's called Mayhex! [Outbreak on KEMBALT-39]. It's a fun, space station based zombie survival card game for two or more players (ages 13+).

Mayhex! has a unique game mechanic - each card has a dice and a coin printed on it (to enable Dice or Coin Duels). It means you'll always have everything you need all in one pack and an end to remembering that you've forgotten your dice, just as you arrive at your destination.

The objective of the game is to be the first to gain 100 points, only then will you be able to cure the virus and make your escape. However, things are never quite that easy - especially when there are Crawlers loose in the cargo hold, Goblins stealing your equipment and Undead hunting in the passageways. (There's a handy demo video on the Kickstarter page which explains how to play in more detail.)

I hope you can take a look and like what you see. The Kickstarter address is... http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/thornwaygames/mayhex-outbreak-on-kembalt-39-card-game or use the quick link... www.mayhex.com which is easier to remember and is shorter to type!

Many thanks for having a look at this post and I hope you enjoy the game.
