Board game ?

Postby james.a.vivian » Mon Dec 27, 2010 1:02 am

Back in the early 90's I remember playing a board game based on the DW series, the main board was of anhk morpork with some expansion kits of Deaths domain or something similar. I just want to know if 1) I am remembering correctly? and 2) weather this game is still available?

Settlers of Catan expansions I think. Not sure if it was official and I think it may all be in German

I might have been mistaken it was a while a go and I hadn't read any pratchett at the time, but my mate who owned the game was a true DW lover and was always trying to get us to read them. We were big D&D fans then.

At the DW convention in Brum this year, I saw some people playing a board game that was based on A-M. I assumed it was a new thing so didn't ask them about it. :?

ahnk-morporkopoly would be great, there are plenty of named buildings and places to make into the various things.

could have the various watch houses as the stations?

Go To The Tanty. Do Not Collect AM$200. :lol:

Of course they already have a version of Monopoly on Discworld - it's called Exclusive Possession. :wink:

YES
and what thor and tony said.....

And the markers (thingies you move around the board) could be a witch on a broomstick, a dwarf, a troll, a guards helmet, a clacks tower,.....
