Discworld Board Games February 17, 2011

My husband is a big Terry Pratchett fan and he stumbled upon some board games, related to the books. There is a Wiki on the games, to be found here.  I will state the different board games available now and in the future below:



This is the first Discworld board game. “Thud! is an abstract game based on Terry Pratchett’s Discworld saga, more specifically on the epic Battle of Koom Valley between the Dwarfs and the Trolls. The players play on a 165 octagonal shaped board as either the Dwarfs or the Trolls. The 8 Trolls start the game in the middle of the board as they have been ambushed by 32 Dwarves (surrounding them at the outer edge of the board). Trolls and Dwarves have different ways of moving and capturing. Each battle is ended by mutual agreement and then scored. When the first battle is over, the players switch sides. The combined scores from both battles determine the winner.”

The book and the game have a fan page of its own, to be found here.  On this website, it is also possible to play Thud! online. Click here to go directly to that page.
