Description from the packaging.

Every silver lining has a cloud....

Just when a man thinks his luck is running out...

...things start getting even worse! He gets run over by a bus. Sprayed with cheese sandwich by a supernatural being. Smashed against a tunnel by a speeding train. He falls from two thousand feet into an artificial waterfall. He gets drunk, drowned, and cursed. He gets incinerated, widdled on, folded, bent, spindled, mutilated, and generally mucked about with.

And in return?

In return, he gets the leading role in a perplexing, hilarious race against time and chance, set in a jinxed land menaced by the impending death of good fortune.

Who are we talking about? Who is holding this box?

You guessed it.

Look on the bright side. It could be your luckiest move yet. Jinxter comes from Magnetic Scrolls, authors of international award-winning adventures The Pawn, and The Guild of Thieves. It's more than a collection of crossword puzzles; it's a whole universe, where things behave as they do in the real world... with some alarming exceptions.

Don't expect tiresome trolls, obvious orcs, silly spells and wet, wimpish witches in Jinxter. Infuriating, enchanting, absurd, and hilarious by turns, Jinxter will surprise you with every move you make. But don't forget: every silver lining has a cloud...

Jinxter... Some people have all the luck!
