In the mood for a really unique weekend warrior experience? Paint ball has become just too passe for you and your buddies? Then perhaps you’d like to engage in the latest extreme sport to come off the books: werewolf hunting.

A Birmingham (England, not Alabama) company called Chillisauce is offering would-be hunters the chance to load their silver ammo and take to the woods for some lycanthropic action with a side of terror. You go into the woods, fortify your position and wait for the attack, and when its done, you get a pint of lager and some snacks and a hardy breakfast the next morning. Assuming, of course, you survive.

Here’s how the adventure is explained on Chillisauce’s website:

Deep in the heart of the countryside, near Birmingham, Farmers have reported unusual losses of livestock, and missing person reports are flooding the local papers. Rumours surfaced of a Special Ops team disappearing 24 months ago – the only clues left were a garbled radio message, and a mangled corpse.

Put simply – it’s your turn to step up where others have failed: Take on the werewolf – on his own turf, and try to outwit this fierce, cunning, intelligent predator.

What do you need to bring? The website recommends a sleeping bag, a washkit,  “robust outdoor clothing with appropriate footwear,” and you need to be “relatively fit” as running, hiding and crawling is all involved.

If this sounds like you, you can get in touch with the bookers at Chillisouce to reserve your weekend, werewolf hunting getaway.

As you nerds probably know, Lucasfilm sends holiday cards to its employees and clients. The 2009 card, shown above, was sent earlier this month. Naturally, many of the cards produced are Star Wars-themed, though other Lucas characters make appearances, too. After the jump, I’ll show you five of my favorites. (Why not 10? I’m making the 9+-hour drive east in an hour, and I’m already going to arrive at midnight! So sue me!).
