Extraordinary Adventures Of Baron Munchausen

£30.00

Product description

A role-playing story-telling game of outrageous originality and swashbuckling exaggeration, stretching the bounds of truth. The Extraordinary Adventures of Baron Munchausen contains full rules, more than two hundred adventures ready to be played, mechanics that replace dice and pencils with money and fine wine, and many insults against the inhabitants of various nations, but principally the French. This expanded edition is a facsimile of a suppressed volume originally published in 1808. It contains additional rules for playing in an Arabian style and a complete supplementary game, 'My Uncle the Baron', designed for children.


Nominated for Best New RPG in the 1999 Origins Awards, Nominated for Best Family/Party Game in the 2009 Origins Awards and Nominated for Best Writing in the 2009 ENnie Awards.

This book is in very good condition and appears to be unused. The only sign of any wear is the the lower left corner of the book is slightly bent, possibly due to storage. However this does not detract from them book at all. The binding is tight, there is no signs of shelf wear or sun bleaching.

A fabulous way of combining a book with a game. Ideal for families or parties
