English translation from the project –

Together with the game developer, we want the revised second edition of Luchador! with a German translation kit equip. We will take care of the translation and production of the German materials. The kit will, in addition to the rule of the game, the special and normal Luchadorkarten and the strength-scoring cards of the wrestlers (which of course retain their original names) be included.

Find the project here.

Alexander vs. Persia: Battleground Historical Warfare – YourMove Games

Having played and enjoyed previous sets in the Battleground Historical Warfare series, this is a slam dunk winner definitely worth your pledge if you like war games.

Recreate Alexander’s invasions of the Persian Empire using the Battleground Fantasy Warfare system.

Take up the mantle of command of the most famous war in history.  Become Alexander as he conquers the largest empire in the world or lead the mighty Persian army in hurling back that upstart princeling from a backwater kingdom.

Alexander vs Persia is the second historical expansion for the award-winning Battleground system.  This product include two new factions:  Alexander’s army of Macedonian pikemen, cavalry, & Greek allies vs the Persian forces levied from every corner of the empire.  Each faction has its own units, unique faction abilities, and a deck of Command Cards.

Alexander vs Persia is fully compatible with all Battleground historical and fantasy armies.  Hannibal’s infantry can face Alexander’s Companions to see which is history’s greatest general.  Bring the thousand nations of Persia crashing down on Scipio’s legions.  Or have Alexander’s army invade the Dwarven homelands and battle the nightmarish Undead hordes.
