    Other Stuff

  • Bugman's Game - a board game of Bar Room Skullduggery !
    (lol, it sounds a really good laugh, get a load of this... "You take the role of a Dwarf who's trying to get to the bar and back to his table with grub and beer. A task that sounds deceptively simple - but, when you throw in moody Elves, grumpy Trolls, Gobbo loan sharks, locals with a propensity for fighting, and Halflings that are far too friendly into the mix, getting a drink to your table is far from easy!" - I'm not sure what they mean about the halfling but it sounds interesting :)

    (sadly, only available from Warhammer World Bugman's Bar in Nottingham UK - although I'm sure some will find their way onto eBay before long)
