Mirror (almost a year old, but better than nothing).

Oh, never mind; It was giving errors that suggested it had gone over its bandwidth quotum, but apparantly not.

Definitely over bandwidth.
I also set up another mirror on some of my own space.
It's here.

It's cute and all. I wonder if these folks know that there was an actual Monty Python and the Holy Grail CCG released back in the day when M:tG was popular.

Wow a lot of work went into that

Some friends and I have done this using our old D&D campaign as source material. We actually printed the cards on label paper and stuck them on bulk commons. Lots of fun and yes, lots of work.

It's a tricky thing to keep the set balanced and not fall into utter silliness. I have a lot of respect for game designers.

Thanks for the mirror, seanyboy. A nice trip down Memory Lane, and amazing to think those half-dozen people came up with all that over time. (Although I didn't expect the Spanish Inquisition.)

thanatopsis: I have some of those cards. It was the ugliest game I ever saw, with cards that looked like they were color copied from bad inkjet printouts. The mechanics were dull, relying far too much on trivia and far too little on humour.

To set up the game players were supposed to take a bunch of cards from both decks and put them face down on the table in a setup vaguely resembling England. What a laff riot, eh?
