Description Edit | History

The Shab-al-Hiri Roach is a dark comedy of manners, lampooning academia and asking players to answer a difficult question - are you willing to swallow a soul-eating telepathic insect bent on destroying human civilization?

No?

Even if it will get you tenure?

A fast paced and hilarious game, The Shab-al-Hiri Roach requires no Game Master and can be played in a single evening. If you enjoy crazed one-upmanship, furious stake-setting, and chanting gutteral commands in Sumerian, The Roach would like to have a word with you.

More Information Edit | History

The print version of The Shab Al-Hiri Roach comes with a deck of 40 hand-cut "Command/Opportunity" cards and an attractive plastic roach.

There is also a free gamechef edition. See the entry for The Shab Al-Hiri Roach (Gamechef edition)
