Pig Tickling

A couple of weeks ago Steve T brought along this jolly game.  It uses Eureka Miniatures figures and rules also published by that company.  In short, this silliness involves Victorian-era British Lancers riding around on unicycles (obviously) in pursuit of a steam-powered pig.  All clear?  Good.  The game includes plenty of opportunities for stitching up the other players, so Steve judged his players well!
A gallant lancer in motion.
Porky pig himself.
The umpire - trying to control proceedings.
Lined up for some pig sticking.
The playing arena can get quite busy!
You get more points for striking piggie's rear!
 I could tell you who won - but modesty forbids!

It was quite an entertaining game - and well judged, as the main event of the evening was the post-Triples analysis.

I've no idea if the figures are still available. Remember to post photos if you get some!

Think you can still get them from Eureka Miniatures from their Pax Limpopo range:

I expect it would work rather well on telly. I will pass on your comments on his fine paintwork to Steve.

Look at it this way. The game kept 4 wargamers off the streets for an hour. Surely this is good for society as a whole?

Paul said...

Yes Tim, perhaps you are right. "Pig Tickling" Keeping the street safe from louts!
