Can't seem to get the image as picture to show del I using a linux OS not windows in windows when I copy the code and paste it, it shows.

It's the new Guards,Guards board game which is about as much as I know at the Mo. :)

Hence the lack of smiley icons also.

Dug, I altered your original post and got the image to work and then you seem to have altered it again. :lol:

The Ankh Morpork game Sjoerd played was being worked on at the Cunning Artificers when I was there last (my initials are on the board worked into the artwork somewhere). I have already ordered the collectors edition which avoids the number .... oh you know that one between 7 and 9. :D
One of those? Oh I'm sure I have one somewhere..

I play-tested it a few months ago. It was easily my favourite of the 3 we tried (including Ankh-Morpork)
You have to get 6 or so spells from different parts of the board whilst avoiding certain traps left for you by other players. Dragons can be summoned and there are few other things in there too. You collect cards depending on where you land which all have characters on and certain sets allow things to happen.
I don't want to give too much away but it is a very well thought out game (and hopefully they've altered the dragon bit to make it harder).

The die will have 7A on it instead of eighnnnn... :P You do know there are going to be 3 versions? The normal one, the collectors edition and a deluxe version :wink:
