The original Discworld board game, older than the book itself! Thud is a strategic game based on the ancient struggle between Dwarf and Troll, and the earlier dwarfish game of Hnaflbaflsniflwhifltafl! This travel edition features cloth board and carved-bone-finish pieces sculpted by Bernard Pearson, plus an exclusive treatise penned for the game by Sir Terry Pratchett himself . . .
Vetinari's game of choice, as featured in Terry Pratchett's Discworld novels Going Postal and Thud!, based on the ancient Battle of Koom Valley between Troll and Dwarf. Thud was designed for us by Professor Trevor Truran in 2002, and Terry came up with the name which he would later give to his 34th Discworld novel Thud!
Players take turns to play the fast moving Dwarfs as they attempt to trap Trolls in a carefully constructed ambush, then take the part of the fearless Trolls who lumber slowly yet powerfully around the board. You can learn to play in a matter of minutes, and no two games are ever the same.
Each set comprises 32 Dwarfs, 8 Trolls, a Thud stone, heavyweight fabric Thud board, rulebook and an exclusive treatise penned especially for Thud by Terry Pratchett himself. Also included are rules for Koom Valley Thud, a high speed version of the game. All contained in a cotton travel bag.
Board measures 47 x 47cm. Pieces are inspired by the Lewis chess set 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 license of the Discworld Emporium.
