Libel, William Roache's seminal board game masterpiece. Not a description i initially thought i'd use to describe the gaming experience when i received this title as a gift.

If i am to be perfectly frank, the games content is somewhat lacking - although it did introduce my friends and i to some of the potential pitfalls of being a public figure in modern Britain; we were by no means highly versed in the subject after playing it.

Until the mid-phases of game play things don't really begin to flow - but from thereon it is a roller-coaster of emotion which takes you from the deepest depths of human endeavour up to its ethereal heights.

In what i would describe as the second phase of game play- whereupon you are 'tipped off' by the metropolitan police officer you have opened sexual relations with (John / Julie - score as appropriate) that your personal voicemails have been intercepted by an investigative operative being employed by The News of the World - do things really begin to fly.

Shortly after receiving your 'legal advice' hand you pit yourselves against the game (and its lawyers), the aim is to amount a strong enough case against the defence by sleeping with as many of your fellow game players as is humanely possible - on that merit i would put aside a spare Sunday and also advise that you do not invite anyone who is too aesthetically challenged.

On a finishing note; my only area of criticism would be that the build quality of the board is not up to the rigours of the game play. I still to this day cannot locate two of the phallus shaped game pieces used during our groups first outing.
