Ankh Morpork Discworld Boardgame Launch Party

Ankh Morpork needs you! Lord Vetinarii is dead, or missing, or possibly on holiday. Regardless, there's a chance for the power-hungry to take control of the city, or complete the plans his Lordship has been so inconsiderately standing in the way of. Players take on a hidden role with differing ways to win, and play cards to place minions, build buildings, control areas, assasinate inconveniences (other players' minions), gain (or lose!) money and do whatever is necessary to accomplish their goals.


On Saturday 3rd September, eclectic games in Reading will be hosting a Launch Party for Martin Wallace's latest boardgame, Ankh Morpork. Dripping with Discworld flavour, boasting gorgeous artwork and fun, compelling gameplay, Ankh Morpork more than lives up to the high standards associated with both Discworld and Treefrog Games.

Martin Wallace will be here all day to demonstrate the game, explain the finer points of what the differences between the Thieves Guild, Fools Guild and Seamstress Guild cards mean from a design point of view, and will probably deface your copy of the game with his signature if you ask him politely.

There will be cake, a small prize for the best Discworld fancy dress, and of course, the game will be available to purchase.

Eclectic Games is open from 10am to 6pm, and is located at 36, Market Place, Reading, RG1 2DE. Telephone 0118 959 8250. Our website is www.eclecticgames.co.uk and we can be reached by email via shop@eclecticgames.co.uk

That pretty much depends on Martin. We as a retail shop can only stock the basic game from our distributers (it's still really really good-looking, and would grace anyone's collection!). Deluxe and collector editions are direct from Treefrog, so it will be up to him if he wants to bring stock of them along. We'll fire off a quick message to see if we can work something out that means the Treefrog editions would be available without disadvantaging our sales of the 'ordinary' game. In the meantime, probably safest to plan on the answer being 'no' unless further information suggests otherwise.

Update on the Launch Party this Saturday

Cake and facepainting available all day for the young and young at heart.

Although the Collectors Edition of the game will not be available from Eclectic Games, the standard editions bought on the day and through our website will come with a limited edition badge featuring artwork from the game, the '7a' dice and a poster. Supplies of these items are LIMITED, so it's strictly a 'while stocks last' offer. If you can't make the party itself, order from our website www.eclecticgames.co.uk to receive the game plus badge/die/poster combo.

See you on Saturday

P.S. We'll also have Guard Guards from Z-man in stock if Ankh Morpork just isn't enough Discworld gamey goodness for you.
