The Final Days Are Upon Us

£12,294 pledged of £14,000 goal ... 27 hours to go

We're entering the 11th hour; judgement day; the end times; ... the next 24 hours will be crucial in deciding whether The Hen Commandments gets made or not.

Normally we'd say something philosophical about it being out of our hands; that the Great Egg knows best and whatever It wills, shall be, in-shell-ah. And the Holy Chicken will surely bless it. A-hen*.

BUT at the risk of being sacriligious, might we suggest that we can all give providence a helping hand by getting out there and spreading the Good Word. There are just 333 backers right now; obviously we can't save everyone, but I think we can attract a few more good eggs for the Holy Chicken.

Before we go, we'll leave you with this marvellous piece of hate-literature that landed on our doorstep just last week from a very enlightened individual who has been busy bravely forcing his anonymous opinion on the citizens of Cambridge:

If you can't see this image, count yourself lucky; it's nothing but hate and bullshit If you can't see this image, count yourself lucky; it's nothing but hate and bullshit

If we're looking to highlight anything with this game, it's shit like this: The author of the above piece is (we have to assume) well-intentioned. He's not doing it to horrify and offend people; he's doing it because a mixture of arrogance, power-lust and poor interpretation has lead him to believe this is not just the right course of action, but the only one, because he (and let's face it; it's going to be a he) is convinced he has God on his side.

We'd like to think that had the author of this pamphlet played The Hen Commandments and played with the fragility of the written word, laughing at how easy it was to tweak meaning, to bend anything to your own advantage... then maybe, just maybe he might have a little less God-given certainty backing him up next time he wanted to take his own frustrations out on the population at large.

Please help us get The Hen Commandments made: http://kck.st/1Gk3vGO

* Special thanks to Lauren for graciously and generously licencing use of "A-hen" to us.

  1. Found out about kickstarter yesterday, browsing the games sections today. One game appealed to my love of humorous and socially risqué board games - The Hen Commandments. I knew I was into a winner when I realised Terrorbull were involved. By the time I found out about this you were fully funded and according to the proposal on kickstarter you may not be marketing the game widely! I want to throw my money at you (and hopefully receive this game in return) - please tell me there's a way that I can do that! Nicola Nicolabroon@googlemail.comNicola from UK - 30 November 2014
  2. We want your game. Thirty quid is a bit steep for people in PL but we're getting bored here in the mountains with the Hare and the Tortoise.Tricky Dickie from Poland - 4 April 2015
  3. Well Tricky Dickie, you're in luck because it's not £30, it's just £21.95 ... but then you're also out of luck because right now you can only get it in the UK. Sorry about that - we hope it'll be successful enough that we can spread the Good Word of Heninism far and wide, but right now we don't know when (or if) that might happen.TerrorBull Games - 30 April 2015
