New from Ninja Division! Ninja All-Stars, Guards! Guards! and Clacks!

Coming in January!
Guards! Guards! A Discworld board game
$59.95 SRP

Guards! Guards! is an action packed, fast paced Discworld game adventure set in the streets of Ankh-Morpork, the Discworld’s oldest, grubbiest and least law-abiding city.

Secret societies, rampaging trolls, cut throat street sellers and an 800 pound set of luggage thundering around the city on hundreds of tiny legs. Players need wits and strategy to survive, never mind returning the stolen Great Spells to the Unseen University and saving the Discworld from looming destruction.

In the game, Guards Guards players are tasked to collect and return five of the missing Great Spells to the University. Each player selects one of four Guilds to infiltrate, Thieves, Assassins, Alchemists or Fools. Their chosen Guild card will give them a specific selection of the Great Spells to collect and grants them a unique Guild Ability which can be used to hinder their opponents. It is also used to mark the players’ Charm, Guild and Magic abilities, which can be developed throughout the game.

Time is short, so rather than returning each Spell in person, the players have been granted the power to recruit the good, and not so good, inhabitants of the city to act as guards and runners to protect and return the Spells to the University. There are fourteen locations on the board where players may Charm (or Bribe) Volunteers to join them on their quest.

So hop to it and get those Spells!

Clacks! A Discworld board game
$49.95 SRP

Clacks! A Discworld Board Game is based on the ‘Clacks’ semaphore messaging system; the fastest (non-magical) messaging system on the Discworld, featured in Sir Terry Pratchett’s novel Going Postal.

Using a semaphore system of shuttered lamps on top of high towers, the Grand Trunk Semaphore Company has revolutionized long-distance communications on the Discworld. Their network of towers covers most of the Unnamed Continent, but now the old postal service is fighting back. Driven by the determination of newly ‘volunteered’ Post Master Moist Von Lipwig, the Ankh-Morpork Post Office has challenged the Clacks operators to a race from Ankh-Morpork to Genua.

Play against your friends and claim the title of Fastest Clacks Operator on the line, or play together as a team to win the race across­ the Discworld and prove that Clacks is here to stay!
