Now funded via Kickstarter - here is the link we would be very happy if you would take a look and maybe then order the game from our shopping page here on this site or just enjoy the sketches we have been posting from the map - which is gorgeous by the way!
Video Review and Demo
Please note that the demos use pre-production samples including prototype cloth maps.

'Backpacks and Blisters' is having a re-boot (little walking joke there...). We designed this game in 1993 and sold some three thousand copies to a world coming to terms with video-gaming at the expense of boardgames. Since then, many have asked about re-printing in full colour and we have made it happen with your help. In preparing the project we couldn't resist re-configuring some aspects of the game (including new Equipment cards), designing the game for solo play (now 1-6 players) and we feel these to be a great improvement on the original. .
Here is a selection of images from Backpacks and Blisters - rules will be posted on BGG as soon as finalised and formatted.
The Lake District is a fabulous place - Chris Bonnington (famous mountain climber going back a bit) called it 'the pocket Alps' and you may have recently seen it and been unaware - have a look at this footage from Star Wars: The Force Awakens
