GreatWar

I’m  Memoir 44 and Battle Cry owner and fan so this is an absolute no brainer.  And a British company, YAY! Shame I don’t have the cash as I would back this one. :(

The latest adaptation of Richard Borg’s Command & Colours system. Bringing the epic battles of World War 1 to the gaming table.

Boardgames in Blighty News – Pew Pew! – Victory Point Games PRESS RELEASE

Pew Pew! from designer Nathan Hansen is a solitaire game emulating those great, old-school arcade shoot ‘em ups from the 1980s, only better suited now for those of us whose reflexes may have slowed (gameplay is turn based), but whose minds are more cunning. If you remember the kid you were spending afternoons at the local arcade, then Pew Pew! is a genuine blast from the past and all the good times you remember in a boardgame format.

Boardgames in Blighty News – Coup the Mobile Edition is on Kickstarter

Coup is one of my favourite games so an ios version is a no brainer. Back it on Kickstarter now! You are welcome.

The idea behind the game is to take Coup but be able to play it anywhere, anytime, with anyone.  We’ve focused on making the game feel like you’re playing live (trash talking, reading your opponents, bluffing), but also that you’re playing with a much wider network of players. Similar to games like Words With Friends, you don’t need to be in the app to play a game – you can take your turns at your convenience.

As huge fans of Coup, we want to deliver a mobile experience that is intuitive, smooth, and (most importantly) fun!

Historical Games Factory in cooperation with Petersen Games launched a joint Kickstarter campaign to crowdfund the English (and possibly also French) edition of their game “Teomachia” (known also as “Theomachie” in German, successfully crowdfunded in late 2013).

The card game about the war of mythological gods now returns in two separate versions, “Theomachy: The Warrior Gods” (including the Celtic, Norse, Slavonic pantheons and H.P. Lovecraft’s Great Old Ones) and “Theomachy: The Ancients” (including Greek, Babylonian, Egyptian pantheons and H.P. Lovecraft’s Outer Gods), compatibile and easy to mix, enabling up to 8 people playing at once.

INTRODUCTION

Stop the presses! Stories are coming in from around the world, but you have a limited amount of money, a few reporters, and a race against all the other newspapers to get your publication out first!

Stories require writing and photos, but advertising, headlines, interviews and features will all help boost your attention and your reputation!

Players place their reporters to claim stories, fit their stories into their paper’s layout, and get money from advertising or extra stories. Other reporters can bump yours if they have more money, so keeping a few dollars around will be helpful. Your newspaper has a specialty, so stories that match your readership will earn you more points. If you’re the first to press, you’ll score more points, but the best stories and the most complete newspaper will be the winner!
