News – Press release from Victory Point Games – Snapgammon now available
SnapGammon is a unique new board game inspired by Backgammon where two cowboys (or cowgirls) race to move their cows to the train, hitting other cows along the way and sending them into the other cowpen.
Players can try to keep their cows safe and slow their opponent’s progress by stacking more than one cow in a single location.
Special Power cards let players bend the rules of the game for their strategic advantage. For example, one card allows a player to swap one of their pieces for one of the other player’s pieces. Other cards allow players to change the values of the dice or even use both the tops and bottoms of the dice when moving.
Several different variations are included in addition to the Power cards. Crazy Dice replace the normal dice with special versions that have different numbers on their faces, including an 8 and even a “-1″, which allows players to move backward one space. And SnapGammon keeps the stampede rolling by allowing players to hit spaces even if they have two or more cows on them, making for a truly wild Western experience.

News – NSKN Games announces Versailles – new release at Spiel Essen
Check out the new Essen release from my friends at NSKN Games!
NSKN Games is proud to announce Versailles, our third board game release in 2014.
Versailles is a strategy board game designed by Andrei Novac and published by NSKN Games in cooperation with 4 other publishing houses covering 7 languages. Designed and developed in English, Versailles will also be released in German, French, Spanish, Italian, Romanian and Polish.
The first few hundred copies of Versailles will be available at the NSKN Games booth at Spiel ’14 Essen, where the game will make its European debut.
In Versailles 2-5 players become master builders competing over the favour of King Louis XIV and the title of main architect of the legendary palace. Every turn a player moves one or more of their workers through a network of locations. Each location provides valuable resources or a way to spend them on tiles representing parts of the palace and its surrounding gardens, on decorations and technologies that bolster gathering and building abilities.
A unique movement and location activation system requires clever workforce management which makes every move count and makes every game tense right to the end, when a single master builder is chosen to be the King’s personal architect.
The official European release will take place on October 16th, 2014 at Spiel ’14 Essen and Versailles will reach hobby stores in Europe in the second half of November 2014.
The English/French edition will be carried by major hobby distributors in the United States and a North American release is planned for December 2014 or January 2015.
Kickstarter News 6/9/14 – If I had the cash I’d look at…
Let’s see which EU friendly project caught my attention this week…
Throughout the 18th century, Britain and France waged a bloody series of wars for nothing short of global domination. Massive sailing warships, armies of bayonet-clad soldiers, and their skilled allies fought for control of North American, African, and Indian colonies. In many ways this was the first “world war”. 1750 is a 2-player card-based strategy game, using both dice and cards to fight for control of the board. One player plays as Britain and the other plays as France, wielding forces to decide the outcome of this struggle.
This looks pretty interesting and is a refreshing change from the usual dross… AND its EU friendly ;)
A Mafia game themed as Orcs? Ok I’ll bite…
The Orcfather is a card game based on a fantasy-themed mafia in which a player’s characters can be Orcs, Elves, Ogres, Undead, Dwarves and more. The players form two mafia families that are confronting one another, and each of the families elects its own “godfather” at the start of the game; the goal of the game is to eliminate the head of the rival family.

News – Mage Company press release for Raid and Trade, OrcFather Kickstarter, 12 Realms Ancestors Legacy and Hoyuk
Raid and Trade is a negotiation and resource management game for 3-5 players. The player who is able to enter the golden city first wins, and there are three different ways to enter the golden city:
Every player also gets secret quests of the golden city. To fulfill these quests, the players have to spend the resources mentioned on the card. To fulfill a quest will not only lead the players closer to victory but also give them advantages for the rest of the game. We will demo the game at Essen Spiel, on October at our booth Hall 3 – Booth O103 while we have scheduled the campaign for the Kickstarter on November 3.
Currently we launched a new campaign on Kickstarter for a new game called “The Orcfather” a fantasy-themed card game for 2-10 players with basic price at $30 including ship fees for several countries. Check it here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/magecompany/the-orcfather
We will be at Essen Spiel at Hall 3 – Booth 3-O103 along with the team who will demo our games. Here is the diagram of our booth where you can find us:
Your clan has left the ancient nomadic life and settled with four other clans in the valley. The community has repeatedly succeeded in harvesting crops, and some families are getting better at raising animals; next moon will see the birth of a new generation of pups. We all praise our own gods and Mother Goddess for being good to us. This new era has brought something new to us: The area is progressively filling with dwellings, built tight against each other. New generations are building their houses over the remains of old constructions. Our greatest families have now constructions way up over the land, proudly showing off their shrines and wealth to the community. Who knows, when the children of our children will come to the world, which clan will rule this multitude?
In Höyük, each player represents a clan that settles with other clans to erect a village. During the game, a replica of a Neolithic settlement will be built on the Höyük board using tiles that represent houses. Many additional pieces — such as ovens, shrines, and pens — will also aid a player in building his settlements. (“Höyük” is Turkish for hill or mound. The word is also used for prehistoric settlements in the region that have a characteristic, hill-like look from houses being built on top of older houses and the absence of streets between the houses because people entered their homes through the roof.) The goal of the game is to build the best settlement and score the most victory points, with multiple paths to victory and many choices along the way. The best clan will prevail in Höyük!
