Based on the Highlander franchise of films and television series- players simulate the form of a sword duel with players alternately playing attacks and defenses and win when their opponent is utterly exhausted or, as in keeping with the lore of Highlander, when they lose their head!  Yes...even in the card game...THERE CAN BE ONLY ONE!  Please enjoy our trip down memory land as Mike and I discuss how we first started with the game, the epic nature of the Jersey Disco fries, our humble beginnings as burgeoning players, and how a small game from Kanas City, Missouri continues to make an impact in gaming communities almost 30 years later.

Observe. Record. Never Interfere. This is the oath of The Watchers; a secret society that was introduced to Highlander the Series at the very end of Season one. However, who were these people and how did their organization manage to survive for over 4,000 years? Most importantly, what changed in their ranks that made one of their most influential leaders, James Horton, turn their trust to ashes as he perverted their organization for all time?
 
In this second part of Who Are The Watchers, your podcasting Kingmakers Kevin Reitzel and Norman C. Lao take a look at the decline and eventual fall of The Watchers.
