A new kind of snuff ?

The King is out walking in the palace gardens with Count Hermann and the Field Marshall ...

King: I here there is a new kind of snuff in use.
Count: What's it called ? I wouldn't mind a change, my current one is getting rather bland. I think the supplier is putting sawdust in it.
King: I heard it is called 'Black Powder' and packs quite a punch. The general staff swear by it.
Count: Sounds great, just what I need
Field Marshall: I hate to disappoint you your majesty, but it is not a blend of snuff. It is in fact a new set of kriegspiel rules, replete with many illustrations.
King: Shame, I would like some more variety in my snuff box .....
