World War 5 - Sample Game

Publication History

  • This game was first released as the Looney Labs Holiday Gift for 2008. Two versions of the board were made available: a folded paper version, which was mailed to fans, and a deluxe version mounted on traditional boardgame stock.
  • World War 5 was included in Pyramid Primer #1. The rules from that version are still availble in this PDF.
  • World War 5 is one of the 22 games featured in Pyramid Arcade.

Other Notes

  • The board included in Pyramid Arcade has several errors: 2 sea-routes (southern US-western Africa & southern Africa-western Australia) were omitted and a border in Asia is incorrect (Northeastern Europe should not connect to Southwestern Asia). Fortunately, this doesn't really impact gameplay much. Most player don't even realize anything is wrong. A corrected version of the board is here.
