Boardgames in Blighty News – The Chosin Few – Victory Point Games PRESS RELEASE

This one looks like a goody for all you war gamers out there. 🙂

On October 25, 1950, with General Douglas MacArthur’s United Nations forces closing in on what would have otherwise been a quick victorious end to the Korean War, Communist Chinese forces began pouring across the border. In northeastern Korea, the US X Corps, led by Major General Ned Almond, was strung out with its units unable to support each other. Those units near the Chosin (Changjin) Reservoir included the 1st Marine Division and elements of the 7th Infantry Division.

You lose the game if you are unable to achieve the third Order Objective, or if one or more of your Units is completely destroyed; you win the game if you are able to successfully complete all the Order Objectives.

Boardgames in Blighty News -Empires in America, Edition 2 – Victory Point Games Press Release

The Little Game Company That Could would like to announce that the following title is now available for pre-order:
 
Empires in America, Edition 2! 
 

Created by veteran designer Joe MirandaEmpires in America is a solitaire States of SiegeTM game of the conflict in North America between the French and British in the mid-18th century. This war, known locally as The French and Indian War, became embroiled in Europe’s Seven Years’ War (1756-63), which caused that conflict to expand into a true World War. The French and Indian War saw small armies (with Indian allies joining them, particularly on the French side) march through vast wildernesses to fight battles which decided America’s fate. This war was a prelude to the American Revolution that broke out two decades later.
Empires map
In Empires in America you control the French (and Indian) forces and the game system controls the British (and their Indian allies).

Now in an upgraded boxed edition, which includes the first edition content along with the expansion kit!

Nemo

Victory Point Games Launches Nemo’s War: 2nd Edition – The MOST Exciting Kickstarter Game I’ve seen in AGES!

Many of you will probably remember that I was an early adopter of Victory Point Games. Over the last year or two, I have been very happy to see that they are getting the recognition that they have deserved for quite some time. They remain one of my favourite game publishers for sure as they are a leading light in publishing a diverse stable of creative games on unusual and interesting topics.

With the launch of Nemo’s War: 2nd Edition, VPG have really come of age and you have a chance to get in on the ground floor of their Kickstarter project! Victory Point Games excels at creating very solid and challenging solitaire games and this reboot of the homage to Juls Verne’s Captain Nemo looks like an absolute cracker!

Unfortunately, I don’t have the extra cash to back it but I really wish I did. Never mind, you can do it and I can be happy for you. 🙂

Boardgames in Blighty News – Hunt: The Unknown Quarry – Victory Point Games PRESS RELEASE

hunt_cover_front

A bounty has been placed on the head of a monster terrorizing a small country town. Bounty hunters descend on the abandoned mansion where it is rumored to make its lair, each hoping to claim the prize. However, one of these hunters is actually the monster in disguise. One is forced to ask, then: who hunts whom?

Hunt: The Unknown Quarry, from Darkest Night designer Jeremy Lennert, is a deductive combat game for 3 to 6 players. One player is secretly the monster, and their goal is to cripple all of the other players in order to escape the mansion. The other players, the human bounty hunters, must discover and kill the monster before they are hunted down by the creature. Each player moves around the mansion’s many rooms to search for clues, gather items, and target other players to deduce which of them is the monster (or, if you are the monster, to wound the other bounty hunters). Tread lightly, for the hunt has begun…

Each round, players take turns moving about the mansion’s many rooms, looking at cards for clues, and picking up items (cards) to add to their hand. Players can also interact when in the same room as another player and try to attack them using the cards in their hand in order to deduce who is the monster and what kind of monster they are. If you are the monster, then you want to do your best to avoid being killed and wound the other players in hopes to escape the mansion with your life. Play continues until either the monster is slain or all the other players declare that they have been crippled.
