Here’s the scene, it’s my birthday and all the family is over and my wife is so proud of herself and tells everyone that she writes down the names of games that I happen to mention over the last year and she’d tracked down this one game that I’d talked about. It was available in German everywhere she’d looked online but she’d worked super hard and found it in English!
So I open the gift. It’s a game called Guilds of Cadwallon.
I’d never heard of it.
I say “Oh, I don’t know what this is”, and she was a bit crestfallen.
I’m still grateful for the work she put in and I’m sorry that I didn’t know it. I have an amazon wishlist if she ever needs it but she loves to surprise me with things I happen to mention but it never works out. There are so many misunderstandings and versions of cluedo and monopoly on the shelf…
But my main focus for now is trying to work out what I must have been talking about in the last year she could have heard as Cadwallon. It’s not a word I’d have just said… because I didn’t know it.
It doesn’t appear to even have a foreign language version so something was lost in translation there. Any ideas?
Super random question but I guess it’s what the thread is for.
