I got sent a copy of ICK the game, created by Michael Slack for review a couple weeks ago. The game is fantastic! It takes a bit to get your head round the instructions, but reading them is a joy, since the instruction booklet is fully illustrated by Mr Slack. Being father of a 10 year old son I was a bit worried, and so would you be if you had ever read Ã¢â‚¬ËœLand of O' by MS with its Global Honkey Inc. story… And the petting pen. I was pleasantly surprised that the game is for ages 6+ even with the character that has a bottom for a face. It's all totally gross, but I've been playing it with my son since we got a copy. The overall presentation box is brilliant and I would recommend buying the game even if you never intend to play it. Also… incidentally a new version of slackart.com was uploaded today.
Michael has also donated one of a Signed and Numbered Edition of 20 print, titled Ã¢â‚¬ËœYara Ma Yha Who' as a prize for the ongoing mail art project MAiLmeART.

Please note: I'm personal a fan of Mr Slack's work! And I'm hoping to get an interview out of him in the next week or so. ;)
