Donning the Purple from Tompet Games will launch on Kickstarter on February 20th.

It is the year 193 AD. The Roman Empire is not as great as it once was. Hordes of enemies are crossing the borders, famine spreads throughout the provinces and the political intrigues are tearing the empire apart from within. The previous emperor was killed by his own Praetorian bodyguard and has left a power vacuum that the powerful families in Rome are trying to fill.

Are you ready to don the purple yourself and take on the stressful job as emperor? If you fail, the other families are ready to take over at a moment’s notice. While they wait for your doom, they won’t hesitate to backstab or undermine you as much as they can. However you all have to work together as the fall of the Roman Empire is closing in.

Donning the Purple is an asymmetrical king of the hill game with a bit of worker placement. Each player leads a powerful family in ancient Rome, trying to get the most victory points during 4 rounds. If your family member becomes the emperor and manages to hold the position he can earn lots of points. However he will also become the target of the other players as they will try to dethrone him and become the new emperor themselves.

Players 1-3 Playtime 70-90 min age 13+

Today, Jellybean Games announced the launch of the Show & Tile Kickstarter, a new game from the designers of Seikatsu.

Show & Tile is a party game for 3-6 players, suitable for all ages! Each player takes two sets of tangram tiles, picks a word, and starts building. At the end of 90 seconds, put your tiles down and try to guess everyone’s words!

Can’t draw? No problem! Tangrams have been around for centuries, and can be used to construct anything you can imagine!

“Ever since I was 8 years old I’ve been fascinated by Tangrams,” said Isaac Shalev. “For someone who can’t draw, being able to create visually feels amazing. Show & Tile is a joyous game about sharing your creativity and I can’t wait to show it to you!”

“When Isaac first showed me this game, I kept coming back to play it again and again,” said publisher Peter C. Hayward. “I must have played it hundreds of times by now, but I’m still discovering new ways to convey ideas. Everyone I play with bring something different to the game!”

As with all Jellybean Games, the rules are straightforward and easy to learn. Players simultaneously create images out of tangrams, and then try to guess what everyone else has made. Extra points are awarded to players who tackle harder words – the fun comes from the challenge of trying to represent simple objects in a restricted way.

The game contains twelve double-sided sets of tangrams, a mat for each player, a sand timer, a scorepad, and a deck of more than three hundred words. Show & Tile is for 3-6 players aged 8+, and will launch on Kickstarter on the 30th of January, 2018

Steve Jackson Games Running Kickstarter for TriPlanetary ReRelease

Jan 22, 2018

Triplanetary depicts ship-to-ship space combat in the Solar System using a vector movement system. It was designed by Marc “Traveller” Miller and first released in 1973. A second edition was released in 1981, but it’s been out of print since then.

Now, this long-lost game returns with a larger map and 5/8” counters! The new edition contains an alternative combat system for those who like more detailed space warfare, but the original rules are included and play just as well as they did in 1973.

Triplanetary is fun to play solo, and has scenarios for two, three, and four+ players. The quick, intuitive movement and combat rules are unchanged. All the scenarios from both editions have been collected, and new campaign rules added. This edition is lightly edited by Steve Jackson, who has been a Triplanetary fan since his college days.
