Haggis is 2-3 player climbing game (similiar to Tichu).

English rules are posted on the game page so you can see the amount of work that would be needed. If you are interested please geekmail me and I can send the latest changes to the posted rules.

A copy of the game will be compensation for your work.

Thanks.

I know a girl who has been learning Gaelic for a while, I'm not sure how fluent she is though. I'll ask.

I bought some shoes from a drug dealer. I don’t know what he laced them with, but I’ve been tripping all day.

I think that all right-thinking people in this country are sick and tired of being told that ordinary, decent people are fed up in this country with being sick and tired. I’m certainly not, and I’m sick and tired of being told that I am.

I will definitely want a copy of this when/if the project is completed. I will need it for my collection of Scottish-themed games.

See if her teacher is interested!

Difficulty translating games is that often there are no terms for specialized language used in games. At least that was the case with translation of the rules for Triumvirate into Classical Latin - and that was done by a latin teacher with assistance from several of his friends that were professors of Latin at major universities.
