Welcome to Ankh-Morpork - the oldest, greatest, and most odorous city on Terry Pratchett's Discworld, a place where trouble is always in the cards. Players are one of seven personalities vying for ultimate control of this proud and pestilent city, using their cunning and guile they'll encounter wizards, assassins, watchmen and thieves, all of whom will affect their fortunes. A finely detailed map and over one hundred individually illustrated cards depicting the city's most beloved and infamous characters, locations, and organizations immerse the player in Discworld's most unruly city. Discworld Ankh-Morpork blends the distinctive humor of Terry Pratchett's best-selling novels with strategic challenge and a dose of mayhem into one devilishly addictive Discworld adventure for two to four players.
