Boardgames in Blighty Kickstarter News 15/03/15 – I am VERY SELECTIVE but if I had the cash I’d look at…
Yes, if your project makes it to my posts, its because I would probably play your game and consider buying it. I am very selective and generally won’t look at Euro’s at all or unoriginal bandwagon rehashes of same old themes. Although, you never know…
Holy Roman Empire
Holy Roman Empire is a political and military game of the 17th Century struggle for empire that plunged Europe into one of its longest and most destructive wars. Up to six players control the major dynasties of the era, fielding armies and navies and engaging in diplomatic intrigue and bribery to decide who will exercise control over Europe.
Looks good. Pricey BUT it is now EU friendly so worth a look…
That’s it for this week folks…

Thunderbirds Co-Operative Board Game
Join International Rescue, avert disasters, and foil the Hood’s evil scheme in THUNDERBIRDS, the new co-op game from Matt Leacock.
A much more attractive proposition the Cryptozoic’s Ghost Buster game for sure.
Great IP license and Matt Leacock design? Should be a no brainer. BUT… £40 for the base game is acceptable. £65 with expansions? Sorry no. Overpriced for me, but I’m not a big fan. It’s a UK project too so thats good.
Looks cool though…
Boardgames in Blighty News – Wallachia 20 – Victory Point Games PRESS RELEASE
Wallachia 20 features two complete games covering a pair of important major battles fought during the Russo-Turkish War of 1806 – 1812 for control of the key Danube river port of Rousse in the province of Wallachia.
Rousse 20 simulates the earlier of these two engagements, fought on 22 June, 1811. In this battle Ottoman forces advanced northwards, towards the present day Bulgarian-Romanian frontier. Russian infantry and cannons were able to stall the polyglot Ottoman army, and although they managed to eke out a marginal victory their commander, General Kutuzov, chose to yield the key town of Rousse to the Ottomans, convincing them they had won a great victory. The Czar was not pleased.
Slobozia 20 focuses on the latter battle of 2 October 1811. In this engagement Kutuzov conducted a surprise march which cut off and surrounded the bulk of the Ottoman army, trapping it on the northern (Bulgarian) shore of the Danube. The result was a decisive Russian victory that permitted negotiations to end the war. This had the dual advantage of allowing Russia to transfer key reserves to oppose Napoleon’s invasion of Russia in 1812, and also prevented Austria from contributing more forces to support the French invasion.

Old School Tactical
Mark H. Walker, noted war game designer has a project definitely worth looking into if you are in the US. Be warned though, its not EU friendly. A shame I say but for US war gamers, worth a look.
Fast and furious battles for 2 players. Tanks, planes, artillery, machine guns, and the soldiers to man them. All in 16 pages of rules.
This one looks good. Not Euro friendly in terms of customs.
A new game that allows gamers to refight the first year of the Korean War. Plays in 2 1/2 hours. Uses the Holdfast system rules.
