We Attended The 2019 SXSW Gaming Awards This Weekend!
This weekend we attended the SXSW Gaming Awards in Austin Texas! We were in attendance not only to check out the iconic festival but also because Western Legends was nominated for Tabletop Game of the year! Nominated alongside other incredible games that came out in 2018 we had high hopes riding the successful Kickstarter campaign of the first big box expansion, Western Legends: Ante Up!
It was an incredible field of games nominated for Tabletop Game of the Year:
- Brass: Birmingham – Roxley Game Laboratory
- Everdell – Starling Games
- Keyforge: Call of the Archons – Fantasy Flight Games
- Root – Leder Games (Winner)
- Western Legends – Kolossal Games
We want to congratulate Root on taking home Game of the Year from SXSW Gaming. While we can’t help but be a little disappointed, we’re very happy for the team over at Leder Games and it was truly an honor to have Western Legends nominated with such an amazing group of games!
We also want to take a moment to thank everyone that has supported Kolossal Games and Western Legends over the past year. We’re so incredibly proud of this team, this game, and the continuing growing fanbase that surrounds it. We hope that Western Legends will continue to inspire fans due to its thematic sandbox gameplay and its ability to tell a unique story with every play!
