Ankh Morpork: A Discworld Board Game

Trouble is a very important thing in Ankh-Morpork. If you move a minion into an area where another one already resides, you automatically add a Trouble marker to that space. This is both a good and bad thing; an area in trouble means that a player may assassinate an enemy minion if a played card allows it.
