Ultima 1 has had a board game created for it.
You can read about it here
Entirety of Ultima 1 Ported to Print-And-Play Board Game | The Escapist.
I don’t know what the copy right concerns may be for something like this, but I guess the creator either checked into it or felt it was ok.
One thing I did find frustrating is HOW to download it, short of grabbing a TON of individual images. There is a dropbox link that after 10 minutes of searching i found for you.
ULTIMA 1 THE BOARD GAME FILES.zip – Dropbox.
*chuckles* not meant as a dig at the creator at all and I hope he is not insulted if he sees this:
I’ve even created a single ZIP file that has all the files in one set zip file! It’s big at 80+ meg but it has everything plus the rule book!
I guess its a matter of perspective. I remember owning my first 20 meg hard drive. On the other hand Im at about 21 TB’s of HD storage now at home (sorry Mad Hermit, I passed you up!). I could even see adding another 6-8tb in the future.. and 300+ gig caps with my internet provider would be a concern! So to me this was small!
The down side to this item is you have to print it all out. It also looks like youd have some cutting and the like to do as well. More work then im willing to jump into, but hopefully its self published soon for those that just want to buy a copy! I am a bit OCD’ish about such things, if I was going to print it it would be on card stock, full color, and I would be making perfect cut’s with a Matt board. The costs for paper and ink combined with the time, end up being more then If I just bought it from somewhere 🙂
If you print it out and try it, come back and drop a comment on what you thought! Or send me a review and I will publish it for you.
