Discworld: Ankh-Morpork Unboxing Photos

There were a few things that lead me to picking up Discworld: Ankh-Morpork tonight.

1. There was a huge sale at my local game store.
2. Our ex-contributor Grug has been raving about Martin Wallace games lately.
3. Everyone else has been raving about Martin Wallace games lately.
4. It looks really funny, and like it's going to be loads of fun.

Read the next paragraph if this makes no sense to you.
A little history on the source material:
Discworld is a comic fantasy book series by English author Sir Terry Pratchett, set on the Discworld, a flat world balanced on the backs of four elephants which, in turn, stand on the back of a giant turtle, Great A'Tuin. The books frequently parody, or at least take inspiration from, J. R. R. Tolkien, Robert E. Howard, H. P. Lovecraft and William Shakespeare, as well as mythology, folklore and fairy tales, often using them for satirical parallels with current cultural, political and scientific issues.

4 handy layer reference sheets! I love this.

The board art is REALLY nice.

Over 75 wooden bits! As far as I know, all of them except the circles are unique to this game. That's a big one for me.

The Minions

The Demons

The Buildings
The Trolls

The Trouble Markers

5 decks of cards,. Clockwise from top right: Player Cards, Personality Cards, more Player Cards, Random Event Cards and City Area Cards.

So there it is... Discworld: Ankh-Morpork! I can't wait to actually get to play it.
