In continuing with my current "Save the Whale!" game theme, my whaling ships are up on the blog. Please drop by and take a look, at:

Oh, now that does look good Brian! And a really unusual subject too.

Nice work.

Inspirational! Although I couldn't find the whale in the link you give.

Now that's bloody brilliant.

I love it.

Thanks sir, and you can compliment David Manley for coming up with the rules. I just tried to find the cheapest way to put a game together.

The whale is the last photo on the blog post. It is, at best, a stylized representation of a real whale. However, it'll do for this game.

79thPA & epturner,
Thank you gentlemen. The game is a hoot with the right people. It seems to demand that you get "in character" and really pile on the stereotypes for both sides.

Yeah, sorry, it was the "better whale" I couldn't find on the German site linked at the bottom of your blog entry. But I've ordered one of the comedy ones from anyway!
