Best Of The Wurst

1942: Occupied France

In Castle Quimper Hotel, overlooking the sleepy town of Quimper, a very important event is being planned. To demonstrate that German/Franco relations are, in fact, excellent, Colonel Kronenburg has organised a sausage tasting competition - the best German wurst against sausages from across Europe! Is there any doubt who will win? There are even rumours of a visiting Very Important Person.

But in a hotel famed for its painting of St Francis of Assisi with the Large Boobies and the Great Tits (it's a nature scene), the locals may have other ideas…

Best of the Wurst is a very silly game for 9 players, set in a France not a million miles away from 'Allo 'Allo!
