2e Exloërmond, The Netherlands - In cooperation with designers Ase and Henrik Berg, Dutch board game publisher White Goblin Games has developed a new bonus card for Rattus, their highly successful board game about the Black Death which strikes in Europe during the Middle Ages. The card is called ‘The Jester’ and stars Ernie, the mascot of highly influential board game community BoardGameGeek. The card truly is a BoardGameGeek exclusive and will only be available from the BoardGameGeek store.
During the Middle Ages, it was the jester’s task to entertain the people. So there’s an obvious link between this card, the game and Boardgamegeek’, he adds. ‘Besides that, a jester is a funny and strange guy so our jester had to do something funny and strange… The player who has the jester, is allowed to take 2 cubes from his supply in hands and drop them on the board from about 30 to 40 cm height. Where the cubes end, they will settle.'
