An Unused Introduction (Part the Second)

For all those paying attention this is the second of its kind, an introduction to a review article which both the editor of SixintheHeadZine (be warned; I’ll probably mention this a few more times in this article) and myself chose not to use. In this instance the review was for a game entitled Burrows and Badgers; whose concept at the very slightest might make one look at denizens of the animal kingdom from a slightly different angle. Are there such things as Fox Ninjas, Mole Clerics or Canine treasure hunters? And, if such were indeed the case, should we be worried that our civilization is at risk of conquest? Questions, queries and a great deal to ponder upon. However, it’s probably best to not wallow on such things, try instead clearing the mind, might I suggest a few moments in which to relax. Perhaps pour yourself a drink, delight in other pleasures of the flesh. Better yet you could ruin a few seconds by running your peepers across that which I was about to promote before I got distracted. May I present “Another Unused SixintheHeadZine Introduction” dedicated to Badgers and Burrows, a game you should probably wrap your mind and digits across at the next given opportunity.

As promised; Burrows and Badgers; an unused introduction

“So, who do you wish to be? There’s plenty of wicked looking rodents and such to choose from”.


“Nope, that’s Warhammer, Steve. This is a different game entirely.”

“Ah, gotcha.”

“But where’s Mr. Toad? And why does Rat have a flamethrower?”

“I was wondering the same thing. Wait, what?”

“Guys. Do you hear that?”

“Look out the window.”

A myriad of tied shoes, a plethora of excited fanciful, uttered assumptions, a handful of curses, an opened door and a few moments later.

“Umm…Gerald. what is it exactly that you’re doing?”

“Oh. Hi, guys. You see theses bastards are vicious we need to take precautions else they slit your throats while you sleep, steal our daughters and begin their quest for global domination.”


“You see this one… (points to a mouse in a cage surrounded by strips of bloodied cloth) …was especially rambunctious. Which reminds me, I’ll probably need to update my tetanus shot”.

“But Gerald, we’re using dice and miniatures. Not real animals.”

“Well perhaps I should…”

“Yep. Get your foot offa’ Fido’s tail and remove your bike from atop Lucifer.”


“And please make sure you fill in all those holes.

“OK. But these bastards are everywhere.”

“GERALD…it’s a game!”

“I guess. Dammit, I was beginning to enjoy this too. I’ll see you guys at work then.”

“Bye Gerald. And take that shovel and damn flag with you!”

Nope, these aren’t Skaven!

Prepare those dice for some frantic and ferocious furry action (but not that type of “furry action”; get your mind outta the gutter).
