Dead men tell no lies.
Draw your sword and join me as I unbox Okko Chronicles by French publisher The Red Joker.
Okko is a French comic book series written and illustrated by Hub (Humbert Chabuel), and the first attempt to bring it to boardgaming was back in 2008. It was a pretty straightforward skirmish combat game with a few twists, and there were some lovely metal miniatures available separately, some of which I purchased and painted. Wow, they certainly were fragile and fiddly though.
Fast forward about ten years and The Red Joker, a publisher I hadn’t heard of before, Kickstarted Okko Chronicles, and I had to buy in. It felt slightly risky at the time, but they’ve come up with a beautiful product only about six months late (par for the course with Kickstarter campaigns really) featuring some very nice new plastic miniatures. Let me show you what you get for the Samurai pledge!
