Artex have announced the winner of their TEK competition where entrants had to suggest the meaning of the "1608" in the game's title. The winning entry and a few of the other humourous suggestions can be found in the TEK section of Artex' website.

Unregistered user I'm sure I've asked Jan that in the past, and I think he said that it just "sounded cool" :).

Unregistered user ...but you're withholding it to keep people interested?

Unregistered user Or perhaps it's been decided it does mean something, but no-one's decided quite what yet.

Unregistered user Wrong; it means something extremely scary, and as we are nice people here at Artex, we don't want you to be afraid. :-)

Unregistered user It must be the price we're going to have to pay for it, then. :-)
