From the back of a van to the London Stock Exchange...
Since 1975, Games Workshop has been the cornerstone of the UK, with a gaming store in nearly every town and city. They are best known for creating Warhammer but their story, and their origins, are full of nerd-tastic lore and legendary moments. From launching Dungeons and Dragons in the back of their van (and then securing rights to sell it through the whole of Europe) to creating the Fighting Fantasy series, co-founders Ian Livingstone and Steve Jackson tell their remarkable story for the first time in Dice Men. Dice Men is not just the story of an iconic store, but tells of the birth of an industry, one that has changed gaming forever—in full color, and highly illustrated with early memorabilia that will thrill fans.
“Dice Men: The Origin Story of Games Workshop is something too many of us have been waiting for.” — Forbes
"A treasure trove of nostalgia… Ian Livingstone's background with print media (White Dwarf) also shows in abundance. This book is beautifully laid out. You know the moment you see that striking cover, featuring that original Games Workshop image by Ian McCaig, who would go onto illustrate Fighting Fantasy books forever, that you're in for a visual treat - and you are." — Eurogamer
"It’s a wonderfully nostalgic piece of work, part memoir, part full-colour scrapbook, told with infectious enthusiasm and delivered with the pacing you would expect from an international best-selling author." — City AM
