Illuminati revealed and a prize give away. (Ha, watch the views soar...)

Hi guys.

I had a great game on Thursday at the club. It was board game night and one of the hoary old grognards brought along Illuminati by Steve Jackson (the American one I think). It was such a good game. The mechanics are very simple and elegant but inspire so much fun along the way it's amazing. Not sure if it's all that easy to come by or still in print but if it's in your loft somewhere go and rescue it and play immediately. Or put it on ebay for me! The idea is you are a powerful secret organisation and you have to go on and take control of enough of the worlds organisations with your powerbase that you meet your individual victory conditions.

The box art is a classic too, leaving no doubt about the aim of the game.


Easily the biggest hit for a year or so and it inspired us to announce Jackson's Car Wars as next months game.

As I am up to 95 followers I have decided to announce a competition. I won't do one of those typical blog contests that falsely inflate numbers, I'm just not into collecting people, instead I'm just going to draw one of my followers out of the hat when I hit 100 and give them a prize. Can I invite suggestions as to what the prize should be please? As a board game lover I was leaning towards picking up a copy of one I recommend and posting that off, what do you guys think?

You're not getting any of my precious lead, before you ask.

Thanks for stopping by!

    1. How about I put in the small print, 'Board game prize is not offered in the form of a cash alternative though it may be exchanged for a night of debauchery in a seedy motel'. Satisfactory?

  2. I think it's very generous of you and far more interesting than the average "pimp me" practice... ;)
