Boxed Game


The original Lake District boardgame, only it's played on a big map made of cloth!

We designed this game years ago and launched it in style on Cumbrian T.V. and it's still selling like hot cakes up in Keswick and surrounding locations. People seem to like its easy playability combined with enough tactical decisions to make it a competitive game. It's also very evocative of the Lake District for those who know and love its often breathtaking scenery.

This is the game where buying a cup of tea in Braithwaite could make all the difference, or wolfing down that last bar of chocolate gives you just enough energy to race back into Keswick before the Mountain Rescue is called out to scour the hills for you (and scour your points from the score track too!).

Backpacks and Blisters is a game with plenty of scope for interaction and much amusement when your opponents collapse to the grassy sward with a blister or two to delay their progress. It's a family game that adults on their own enjoy as well and one that only takes about an hour to play - leaving you plenty of time to complete the set-up procedure for Advanced Squad Leader before deciding not to bother with it.
