VPG PRESS RELEASE – Press release from Victory Point Games – Darkest Night expansion #1: With An Inner Light now available!

 

 

 

A new wave of refugees arrived yesterday, telling tales of hordes of shades overwhelming their homesteads. I immediately sent word to the Prince, though I don’t know if he can do anything for them. The monastery is now abuzz with word of a stranger who arrived this morning. Though his countenance was grave, he shone with an inner light.
Darkest Night: With an Inner Light, by designer Jeremy Lennert, introduces a quest system that requires the heroes to respond to crises throughout the kingdom and offers new ways to acquire items and powers. The expansion also adds four new playable heroes (the Crusader, Monk, Paragon, and Shaman) as well as new event and artifact cards.
Note: This game requires that you (or someone in your group of players) own a copy of Darkest Night.

News – Check out FiSH DeCK on Kickstarter!

Hey guys, here is another Kickstarter game project that you may want to have a look at. Its called FiSH DeCK and looks like a nifty little family game.

Here’s a note from the project owner Joey Andrews.

My project is a family card game called FiSH DeCK. I’ve designed a deck of cards that’s versatile for gameplay. I want people to be able to play several different games with it. I’m illustrating all the cards with strange and funny character fish. The main rules for the game play a little like the old card game Tonk(Trunk). It’s a quick game and it’s fun. I like pointing out that the cards look really damn good, even if I am patting myself on the back.

Fish 3

Little kids can play it, old ladies can play it. Everyone can have fun with it. Except maybe infants and the invalid.

http://www.fishdeck.net is the game website. Once you see it, you’ll quickly understand what I’m doing with the game. You can get to the kickstarter and facebook page from there, too. All the rules that we’ve developed so far are listed on the kickstarter page.

Liar Liar

News – Press release – Pants on Fire Games has a Kickstarter project for – Liar Liar

Liar Liar is the award winning trivia board game where you have to convince your opponents that your answer is the correct answer.

This is our flagship game (hence the name of our company) and it is already enjoyed by thousands of people in the UK. It was the winner of the Best Party Game in 2009 and now we are aiming to publish a new edition, a more compact (less expensive) and more streamlined version with an eye to launching the game in the United States and the rest of the world.
Basically all trivia games are simply “Question” and “Answer”. Sometimes they are hung on a theme, sometimes they are combined with laborious mechanics, sometimes, unless you like quizzes, they are boring. Liar Liar is none of those. The aim of Liar Liar is to win Lie Cards by inventing credible answers to bizarre and amusing questions or by convincing opponents that a ridiculous and unbelievable fact might just be true.

News – The guys from The Spiel announce – Scopa! – Classic Italian Card Game – Gamer’s Edition live on Kickstarter

Some cool news for you!

My friends at The Spiel podcast have launched a Kickstarter project for the Classic Italian card game, Scopa. Here is their press release…

This is our first venture into publishing. It’s also the first game in what we hope will be a series reintroducing players to a treasure trove of lesser known or forgotten classic card games.

The first project is Scopa: Gamer’s Edition. All the gory details are listed below!

***
From Magellan to the modern day, Scopa, the classic Italian card game, has been enjoyed for nearly 500 years.

Players capture cards from a central area to score points at the end of each round or “sweep” the table clean of cards (Scopa means sweep in Italian). The first player to collect 11 points over a series of rounds wins the game.

scopa-examples-3

Scopa is played with a 40 card deck, 10 cards in four different suits. The suits in a traditional Scopa deck are swords, cups, clubs (literal clubs), and coins.

Our Gamer’s Edition of Scopa replaces the traditional suits with game components: dice, dominoes, clubs (the card suit), and meeples.

scopa-examples-2

The cards are being printed at Ludo Fact in Germany and will come packed in a mini game box with a proper box lid and bottom instead of a tuck box.

We are funding this project through Kickstarter. You can see samples of the card artwork and stretch goals here:

The buy-in for a single deck is $12 for US addresses and $20 for International addresses. Both reward levels include free shipping. You can add extra decks to any pledge for $8/deck.

 

So if this looks like a game you would enjoy, check out the project and back Scopa!
