Subject: Magnetic Billiards: Seriously Casual
This is the very first sketch I did in my work notebook when we came up with the idea of the Victorian setting and theme for Magnetic Billiards, about eleven months ago.
The idea John came up with, while we were still knocking about different ideas for a theme to go with our game mechanic, was that the game was originally devised by our great, great grandfather - old man Pickford - who actually got it working in a pub in Stockport, but only the blueprints survived (we were working in the blueprint theme at the time).
We've found the dusty old blueprints in our parent's attic, and were now remaking a 'virtual' version of this old family game.
