Captain Darling & the Pig Tickler Tournament!
« on: March 09, 2024, 11:45:33 AM »
It is 1892 the height of the Victorian Steam Age and Captain Darling finds himself involved in the Annual Pig Tickler Tournament!

Pictured on a cricket oval near one of the sight screens in St James Park close to Wellington Barracks Captain Darling 'in uniform' prepares for the upcoming Pig Tickler Tournament!


Read all about how this came to pass on the good captains Blog...

...and eventually (once I finish a bit more scenery and get some suckers in for a game) there'll be a blow by blow AAR of the Tournament available to peruse!

A great game! I discovered it at a small con in Massachusetts 15 or 20 years ago! Colorful and whimsical! I love it!

Awesome blast from the past, Cap'n!

Never got to play, but fond memories of hearing about it. Mind, I was certains shocked at hearing of less than sportsman behaviours!

I was momentarily daunted by the Pick Tickler Tournament until I realized the reference to the exclusivity of enter. A few fewer years and less poundage, I might have challenged you for the honour!

Still, pip pip.

Excellent, I have a version we'll be playing next weekend with goblins called "Squig Tickling".

Definitely a retro moment.
I bought mine possibly at Salute when it was at  Olympia from GZG.
