This new edition, a facsimile of the suppressed 1808 printing, is more than twice the length of the original game. It adds rules for playing the game in an Arabian style and a complete supplementary game, ‘My Uncle the Baron’, designed for children, the inbred and those who are very drunk.
The bulk of the print-run, the ‘Wives’ and Servants’ Edition’, is softcover, with a simple black-on-white cover shown above, so as not to over-excite the delicate sensibilities of ladies, domestics and the lower orders. One illustration from the Gentlemen’s Edition has been omitted at the Baron’s instruction, due to its salacious nature.
“The original edition of The Extraordinary Adventures of Baron Munchausen was unique and marvellous. This new edition is even better. If you are a clever person with clever friends, you will enjoy reading and playing it. Let’s not consider the alternative.” —Steve Jackson
“Utter brilliance in RPG form!” —John Kovalic, creator of Dork Tower.
The Extraordinary Adventures of Baron Munchausen is republished by Magnum Opus Press in association with Flaming Cobra, an imprint of Mongoose Publishing.
