As we've bemoaned before, "business" can be pretty dull at times - regardless of what you're dealing with. However, there's always one component guaranteed to raise a smile and that's the EVIL balaclava.

Whether it's measuring eye holes for a new design spec or stipulating the exact wording of text on the label, the absurdity of including a balaclava in a board game never fails to make us chuckle. The new balaclava is a silky smooth poly-cotton mix, not unlike a wrestler's mask Just the thought that with each new game, there's also a new EVIL balaclava owner ... it almost gives us delusions of grandeur, like we have our own private balaclava army waiting in the wings.

Since the second print-run of War on Terror (summer '07), there's been a new, improved, refined, light-weight balaclava. Reports from sweaty convention halls and the Iraqi desert alike convinced us that the 'knitted look' wasn't without it's practical drawbacks. The new balaclava, therefore, is a silky smooth poly-cotton mix, not unlike a wrestler's mask, but it's still absolutely terrifying. Maybe more so than the original.

It was during a recent moment of take-a-step-back-and-realise-how-weird-things-have-become that we noticed we had enough balaclava samples to open a small, esoteric and slightly disturbing museum: The Museum of the Evil Balacava. But we're not going to open a museum, that would just be mental. However, what we are going to do is share this item's bizarre history with you in picture format and present a gallery of balaclava samples we've acquired over the years. Let us link arms and skip down memory lane whilst wearing frightening headgear...

  1. Tom, I have not only cried and silently shook for the last ten minutes in hysterical laughter (I'm a librarian remember?)... I think a small bit of wee came out. The Museum of the Evil Balaclava is by far the funniest and most beautiful thing I've ever seen modelled. Genius.
