The game of TRIPODS is based on the BBC television series of the same name. You have to get to the White Mountains somewhere in South-East France if you are to help the free men defeat the Tripods. You start at one of the French ports and you must try to find the entrance to the tunnel that leads to your destination. On your way you will have to cope with the terrain, the weather and the TRIPODS. You will meet people who may help you or hinder you. You will need to keep well fed and collect items that will help you on your way. You must try to avoid places where you may meet a blackguard. Every time you are noticed by a TRIPOD your immunity to being "capped" may decrease. If your immunity drops to zero you may well be capped and you will have lost. Up to four people can play the game together. If several are in the same square the chance of attracting TRIPODS will increase. You can all travel in separate ways if you prefer.
