With the sequel to Peter Molyneaux's magnum opus, Fable, out later this year, gamers keen to get a head start in the maestro's virtual world can pay to download Pub Games early (it will come free with Fable 2 when it's released) now.

By doing so, you can earn gold, which can be used in the main game. The activities here are Keystone, which combines elements of craps and roulette; Spinnerbox, a proto-slot machine; and the luck-based Fortune's Tower. It's a little cheeky to charge for this, but misers can wait until Fable 2 is out.
