Merry Axmas

A little publisher tells us that some elves have taken a shipment or two away from the printers of the Oh My God! There’s An Axe In My Head game. These elves do what elves do, and that’s distribute games.

Also, we’ve gotten a couple of cases straight from the press. They look mighty fine:


It is very close indeed to Christmas, but every effort is being made to get the now-released game into the hands of all the Kickstarter backers as quickly as possible. Further details should be popping up here,, Facebook and Twitter as we pull these various sites together.

Dave Fooden and Chris would like to thank everyone for their long patience and trust in our making this wacky wacky dream an even more absurd and amusing reality.

Merry Axmas!


GENEVA, 1920. The League of Nations convenes for its first session of the General Assembly.

Proud to host this august world body, Switzerland commissions their champion axe-juggling troupe, Les Bella Lieben Jolie De Von Giorno, to entertain the assembled delegates. Unfortunately, halfway through the demonstration, the Troupe goes insane, and begins hurling axes into the audience, splitting head after head.

Calling for calm, the Secretary General orders a recess, only to have his cranium split as well. The remaining Great Powers use the confusion to pass the gavel between themselves, conduct business of interest to them, and generally try to shift the balance of world power… while escaping a bunch of axe-wielding psychopaths.


Oh My God! There’s an Axe In My Head is a board game of intrigue and mayhem for 2 to 6 players. Recommended for ages 16 and up, play time is about 60 minutes.
