1968 ka-bala boardgame


You've turned out the lights, the room is bathed in an eerie green glow, you place your trembling hands on the sinister board, and your first question is ... "Will I ever pitch a winning game?" That's your first question? Seriously, that is not your first question. After actually looking at the mystical eye of Zohar in all its plastic glory, your first question is, "aw, but how can something so cute be all occulty and evil?" And that, friends, is how you build a cult.

  1. Please check out Roger Norman's excellent 'Albion's Dream' and 'Red Die' novels where the often malign influence of a board game, magical? dice and the landscape of Dorset all coalesce....
