Just received a note from the publisher of War on Terror!
Dear Boardgames in Blighty, It’s great to be in touch. I’m the publisher (and the illustrator) of ‘War on Terror, the boardgame’ and ‘Crunch – the game for utter bankers’. I don’t know if you’ve heard of them but we’re doing something rather bonkers for edition 2 of War on Terror, and I thought this would possibly interest you, and at the same time amuse! We’re having an auction which starts this Friday, it’s a bit unusual… here are full details: http://www.terrorbullgames.co.uk/moneyauction/
Basically, we’re auctioning off the space on the War on Terror money, so that you can have your face on it, for the next 5,000 sets! I just couldn’t keep this to myself, feel free to tell the world. As the great hand in the sky says…it could be you! Best Tom
Have a look! You too can have your name on the money in War on Terror 2!
