I met the genius behind International Ridicule, Garry Azzaro, through an Ashes to Ashes (Search for "Ashes to Ashes" on: DuckDuckGo, Amazon UK, Amazon US) fan forum where he showed off his custom-made property board game devoted to the show like a proud dad. The work he puts into these games is amazing – covering each aspect you’d expect to find in a property trading board game adapted to the theme. For example, on the Life On Mars/Ashes to Ashes themed board, you start your game by “firing up the quattro”, and if you’re unfortunate to land on that square you are, of course, nicked.
He’s already produced a massive array of games covering films, TV shows and music. Some of these have ended up in celebrity hands – Neil Hannon of The Divine Comedy is a proud owner of The Divine Comedy board and actor Mason Kayne (aka PC 6620 from Ashes series 3) owns an Ashes to Ashes board. A regular at conventions, Garry has attracted the attention of many a celebrity with his boards – take a look at IR Royale
Garry will make a board on absolutely any theme if he has enough information. This gave us a chance a couple of years ago to purchase a very special gift for Michael’s employers and colleagues at Cult Pens – a custom Cult Pens property game!
If you’re looking for a unique gift for a fan of board games and… well… just about anything, get in touch with Garry. As well as being really talented, he’s a really nice bloke.
