Come-and-get-it event for Pacru 302 sets

... based on the idea of taking the game for free and then donating what you think it is worth to you to charity later.




Pacru Ltd is ceasing trading

(and not owing anyone but the owner any money) and will shortly cease to be. This site will remain and the games will remain.

Mike Wellman found the company in 2002 after inventing Pacru. Alan Wills developed the software on the website for playing the game, and Pelle Astrom worked on many different prototypes of the gameboard and chevrons.

Mike says "It will be a sad day when the company is finally dissolved. It has not been a financial success and has not done justice to the games, in my view. The only person responsible for that is me: I've not put enough time and effort into the business. I don't regret publishing the games, however, as I don't think I would have found anyone else to publish an abstract game with 50 wooden markers and 4 chevrons of 4 different colours and without a theme spuriously imposed on top of it. Now the games have existed and proved their worth, I'm hopeful that I will find someone else to publish them in a new set but with their integrity intact. I'd like to thank Alan & Pelle, all those who played the games in numerous play-testing versions in the Parrs Wood pub, the people at the Mind Sports Olympiad, and the championship competitors and fans whose appreciation I've valued very highly. And of course my family for putting up with it all!"
