History Repeats Itself was the title and theme of the fourth piecepack game design contest launched in the summer of 2003. As of the July 11th, 2003 deadline there were only five entries that met the limitations of a historically based game using the piecepack pieces. Rob LeGood, the winner of the Changing Landscapes design contest, judged the contest. Phillip Lerche won with his design: Pharaoh’s Heir. His prize included two sets of piecepack pyramids in a hand-painted box, 2nd edition rules CD for the piecepack, the traveling piecepack trophy cloth, and a T.B.A. prize. This game was a detailed representation of farming and living near the Nile. Other entries included Eric Witt’s Berlin, Clark Rodeffer’s Black Thursday Redacted, Mark Biggar’s Chariots, and Eric Witt’s other entry Divorced Beheaded Died Divorced Beheaded Survived.
