Someone, way back when, took the concepts of the classic game M.U.L.E and converted it to board game format, dubbing it L.L.A.M.A. in the process. Brilliant stuff. Sadly, the rules never seemed to make their way onto the site.
There is, however, a game called "Q.U.L.E." from Wilcot Group, a free board game in the same vein.
