Hmm will probably buy that. Me and my partner used to come in from the local metal club and play Thud! at 3am in the morning. Come to think of it I barely remember the rules!

The prototype arrived to day so I get to test it, got to say the picture cards done by Stephen Player are awesome :)

A bit of nitpicking here: YMMV when it comes to Mr Player's art. Personally I think he is making characters too ugly for their own good.

Each to their own I say :)

I was never a massive fan of Josh Kirbys style and preferred Paul's over any other artist but credit to Stephen they do look pretty decent, I will be doing a 3 part look at the game later this week or early next week and will post so close up pics of the artwork for you to look over.

So I would like to know if anyone would like to meet up to test the game with me. I live in South Yorkshire.



That is awfully tempting, I also live in South Yorkshire. Which bit are you from?
