Oh My God! There’s An Axe In My Head.
THE GAME OF INTERNATIONAL DIPLOMACY
It is the first meeting of the League of Nations, and the Swiss are so proud of hosting this august body, that they invite their champion axe-juggling troupe to entertain the assembled delegates.
Unfortunately, halfway through the demonstration, the troupe goes insane, and begins pitching hatchets into the audience. Players take the roles of the Great Powers, who use the confusion to conduct international business amidst the chaos, and generally try to shift the balance of world power while escaping a bunch of armed psychopaths.
Oh My God! There’s an Axe In My Head is a boardgame of intrigue and mayhem for 3 to 6 players. In our latest set of rules, play time is about 60 minutes or less.
News for September 2011!
THIS PROJECT WILL BE FUNDED ON MONDAY SEP 12, 1:00am EDT.
Early on Tuesday, the Oh My God! There’s An Axe In My Head Kickstarter campaign reached its primary goal. We have less than ten days before the end of the campaign, so if you want to be one of the first to have this long-awaited game, you only have until the time specified.
Hugundous thanks to all our pledgers!!
