News from Numbskull Games

Greetings from Numbskull Games!

Coming in February: Grand Conquest takes the Conquest game to a whole new level, adding Castles with Drawbridges, Camels, Catapults, and Siege Engines.  It also introduces movement in the fields between the standard playing positions. Additionally, new units can be built by paying moves.  The board is printed on both sides, with a 4-Player version on one side and a 2-Player version on the other. The 4-Player version can be played as a free-for-all or as a partnership game. The new boards and deluxe versions are available only through the website.  The boxed sets will be available at select retail outlets.

Also in February:  PREZCON is held in Charlottsville Virgina on Feb.23-27, we will be showing our games at this event which is one of the big cons for tournament play.

New Arrival: Blockade Runner is available now! Players take on the roles of entrepreneurs seeking to cash in on the war between the North and South by sneaking cash crops out and war goods in through the Union blockade. Hard decisions include whether to play safely to keep ships afloat or take potentially profitable risks. Players must compete with each other for access to commodities, top market prices, and newly built ships. Whether motivated by patriotism, greed, or both, adventure and cash are to be had by all!  For more information about the game, click here.

Alert! The smokestacks did not fit well on the first run, so we are replacing them free of charge. The replacements have been manufactured and are on their way now. Just email us for a replacement set..

Preview: Bullfrog Goldfield is a stock trading game set in the last great North American Gold and Silver rush in Nevada in 1905. The remote area in which the ores were discovered necessitated the building of railroads to supersede the transport to smelters by mule driven wagons. This created a race from existing railroads north and south. The numerous ghost towns that dot the area today are all a direct result of this short lived mineral bonanza. The city of Las Vegas was established at this time in response to the gold and silver rush. Rail building, mine development and town development are the parameters around which the stock trading revolves. Check out images of the game components here.
