I was delighted to learn in early November this year that another of Charlotte’s little books was saved for Haworth, Yorkshire, the nation and the world.
Me and the tiny men at the Man of TIN blog did have a small whip-round and made a suitably tiny donation alongside hundreds of others to secure this tiny matchbox sized magazine back to its home, where it was handmade small enough for the Bronte toy soldiers to read.
Why are the Bronte sisters (and brother) interesting to gamers?
I have been following up ideas from the Bronte family ImagiNations for future gaming scenarios:
With powered up Bronte Sisters like these, and their mech transformation into the BronteSaurus I think they would make short work of the invading armies that threaten their ImagiNations.
Celia Rees’ modern fictional take on the tiny books The Glasstown Wars was also a memorable read this year. https://manoftinblog.wordpress.com/2019/08/31/glass-town-wars-by-celia-rees-a-gaming-modern-take-on-the-bronte-imaginations/
2020 will feature more Bronte inspired war games and gaming scenarios. It is also the 200th bicentenary of the birth of the youngest Bronte sister Anne, the final act in the Bronte 200 celebrations. https://www.bronte.org.uk
