Boardgames in Blighty Kickstarter News – Mage Company announces “Res Publica by Reiner Knizia returns!”
Res Publica returns with a revised version: Res Publica:2230AD
and this time ravels in future, where races migrate through Space searching for new areas in which to settle. Intensive trading brings together strong Races, encourages new settlements and promotes the development of civilization.
Each turn is divided in three different phases: Trade, Display and Draw cards. Each player at his turn can make a trade offer and each player in turn responds in kind. Using the cards through trading and drawing players work to acquire five identical race cards in order to build a Space Station (which increases the number of cards you can draw each turn) or five identical technology cards in order to build a City (which gives Victory Points).
Aside the set collection and trading mechanics, you will discover some extra cards in the game. New buildings with different abilities that either allow you to build a City displaying four technology cards, or give you extra Victory Points. At the end of the game, players total the points collected and the highest score wins.

Dawn of the Zeds 3rd Edition
I’m not a huge fan of zombies games but there are exceptions. Victory Point Games have ramped up this game (I have the 2nd Edition) and this is going to be a beaut. The States of Siege game system is solid and the components and art are nice.
Defend the city of Farmingdale and its citizens against hordes of Zeds in an effort to survive until the very end in Dawn of the Zeds!

Well, its certainly nice to see something different. you build this game and then you play it. My only concern is storage I suppose, as it might be a pain to take it all down and build it every time but its no different than setting up a game. Nice to see a clever approach. The art looks great.

Boardgames in Blighty News – Bountytown – Victory Point Games PRESS RELEASE
The ol’ railroad needs to lay track through this town yesterday, but with the jailhouse empty since the death of the last sheriff, all manner of outlaws have made this little dust bucket their playground. The fix? Scare off the outlaws. The railroad’s put out bounties on the worst of the worst, with cash rewards higher than anything this side of St. Louis. That’s drawn everyone from veteran peacekeepers to folks who’ve never once picked up a pistol. Folks out West don’t call this town by its proper name no more. They call it… Bountytown
In Bountytown, from Kyle Van Winkle and Michael Huven-Moore, three to six players take on the roles of unique characters in the Wild West, dueling bounties and each other in a race to build up the most Renown in Bountytown. Players move around the town, activating unique locations to gain advantages and to shore up weaknesses. The bounty hunter who has earned the most Renown when the dust settles wins the game!
