Back in 2008 we visited Essen in Germany, to snoop around the toy fair we were banned from. When we were there we had a great games evening in the shop Fantasy En'counter hosted by our good friend Holgar. There we met two great guys who had developed their own cards for War on Terror. We didn't realise it then but this was just the beginning for them...

Just recently we received the most amazing package in the post. We soon realised our German friends had been very busy since we last met. Very, very busy. They've been rather taken by War on Terror, so much so, that their original collection of lovingly illustrated cards (as if this wasn't enough in itself) has now been developed somewhat. This new package contained a 21 page card appendix translated into English, 53 (yep you read it right, that's 53) all new Empire and 13 Terrorist cards, as well as new ideas and cards for 'Terrorist Leaders' and 'Mission Cards'. And last but not least the package included a Defcon playing system influenced by the news that we were working on a Threat Level System ourselves. We have officially been blown away, and Tom our illustrator is reading the job pages more than ever before.

Take a look at some of the cards on the right and you'll begin to get a feel for the passion and time that these guys have put in. We are humbled and salute these two fine Germans. At the same time we are a little worried for their sanity. Although speaking from experience we think that the loss of sanity they may have experienced is a natural by product of spending so much time working on and developing rules for such a ridiculous board game. Gents, we now need to lie down and recover, everybody else carry on. The world is not normal.

PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT:
Chaps, can you get in touch with us, let us know your contact details and we'll reciprocate and send you some goodies in the post? We love your style and it should be rewarded.
