Adapted from Gargantua by François Rabelais.

Though it has its "rabelaisien" side, Les Guerres Picrocholines is a balanced game in which each camp has its own distinct strengths and during which players will have to adopt the role of both the attacker and the defender. Les Guerres Picrocholines combines gaming pleasure with culture and history, and is ideal for initiating new players into wargaming.
