The beautiful game board

Best birthday present ever?

OK, so if you’ve been reading this blog for long enough you might remember that Oliver and Abi have a reputation for pretty awesome birthday presents. But I have to report that this year they have completely outdone themselves, and with such panache that I have no way of ever making up for lost ground in return. But never mind. Last night I travelled up to the distant shores of High Barnet to be presented with the Secret Project (TM): The Doctor’s London Underground Adventure Game*.

That’s right: it’s a handmade, lovingly crafted board game. Based around my life. And with its own unique set of rules. This is, hand on heart, the coolest thing ever:

So, come on over and face a universe which includes: London Underground, Doctor Who, Battlestar Galactica, Merlin, True Blood, Twilight, mango beer, the collapse of Metronet, the ‘RSS Feed’ deck, Ken Livingstone, Boris Johnson, Hume, Marx, Hegel, Tybalt Capulet II, the perils of eating fruit – and much more besides! You know you want to…

  1. I’m not sure whether to be more scared by the Dalek, the Boris, or the mango beer.

    Unique and wonderful!
