Based on the ancient struggle between Dwarf and Troll, Thud combines the magic of Discworld with cut-throat game play. As Vetinari's game of choice, Thud became the central theme to Terry Pratchett's 34th Discworld novel 'Thud!', made a cameo appearance in Sky One's film adaptations and is enjoyed by thousands of Discworld fans and gamers across the world. .

Thud is a game of two halves. A player takes his turn to play the fast moving Dwarfs as they attempt to trap Trolls in a carefully constructed ambush, only to then take the part of the fearless Trolls in the second battle as they lumber slowly yet powerfully around the board. You can learn to play in a matter of minutes, and  game can last from half an hour to gruelling day-long battles. No two games are ever the same.

Contained within a cotton travel bag, each set comprises 32 Dwarfs, 8 Trolls, a Thud stone,Thud board, rulebook and a treatise penned especially for Thud by Terry Pratchett himself.

Also included are rules for Koom Valley Thud, a speed version of the game which has an entirely different dynamic - effectively this is two games in one!

The Board measures 47 x 47 cms and is screenprinted onto durable, heavyweight natural cotton.The pieces are inspired by the Lewis Chessmen and are cast in resin with a carved bone effect finish.Dwarfs stand 35mms tall and Trolls stand at 62mms.

Thud was devised by Trevor Truran and is produced officially and exclusively under licence of the Discworld Emporium. For reviews and discussions visit the Thud pages on BoardGameGeek.com: http://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/4532/thud
