“I smell the blood of an Englishman”. This is the phrase the giant shouts as he runs after Jack in the classic fairy tale “Jack and the Bean Stalk”, which is now becoming a card game coming out by Renegade Game Studios.

The Blood of an Englishman is a two-player game that takes up to 30 minutes. One player takes on the role of Jack, trying to steal the giant’s treasure and the other plays the Giant, trying to stop Jack before he can run off with his gold, his singing harp and the golden goose. Therefore, each one has a specific goal to achieve during the game, so as to be the winner. Jack has to form three bean stalks, while the giant must arrange his Fee, Fi, Fo and Fum cards into his iconic phrase in order to stop him. Fee Fi Fo Fum! Do you smell the blood of the Englishman?

The Blood of an Englishman has been planned for release in early November 2016.

I got to know the world of board games along with NinjaBoy several years ago. So we both ended up getting hooked on playing, until we finally decided to create this website, so that boardgamers from all over the world will gather around. I am a translator and a copywriter. Making this site, as well as working on it every single day, has been a great experience and we are happy to know that it has brought together people who share the same love for board games. So, choose your character, shuffle your deck and roll your dice, for there are some board game stories here to explore!
