Coup

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!

Boardgames in Blighty News – IELLO Press release for Nuremberg Toy Fair

Like every year, IELLO will be at the Nuremberg Toy Fair later this month. It’s a perfect chance to show you what is coming from us in 2015 — and we’re thrilled by the games we’re currently working on!
If you attend the Toy Fair, you can book an appointment with me through our online scheduling tool. It’ll be my pleasure to greet you on our booth (10.1 F22) and to show you our new and future releases (see below).
If you’re around on Thursday night, feel free to join us for a casual booth party, starting at 18:00. Just send me a message (or leave a comment when you book an appointment), so we make sure we bring drinks for everyone attending!
Also, we’ll be using MailChimp for our International press list from now on, so please subscribe to receive our next releases about new games and event announcements.
Now, here’s a small preview of what we’ll be showing at Nuremberg next week. If you can’t make it to the Toy Fair, don’t worry: I’ll send press releases for each of those games later. You can also download our Nuremberg catalog.

Boardgames in Blighty News – Angels One Five – Victory Point Games PRESS RELEASE

Boardgames in Blighty News – Angels One Five – Victory Point Games PRESS RELEASE

This fascinating simulation puts players in charge of British and German Squadrons as they duke it out for air superiority over the battlefields of Europe. Unlike other air wargames, this one is not tactical (individual dog fights), nor strategic (conducting bombing campaigns); Angels One Five is uniquely operational in scale with combat conducted via squadron-size units.

angels15_sample_map_2_of_3_

Two players or teams direct the actions of the escorting and intercepting fighters as they seek to inflict losses on the opposing aircraft while minimizing their own. In team play, each player controls one or more specific fighter units, depending on the number of players and the amount of time available. The simulation may also be played solitaire to study the dynamics involved.

Wargames author, professor, and designer Philip Sabin introduced Angels One Five in his book, Simulating War, and this Victory Point Games edition has polished the game’s original components to bring you a great simulation game experience.
