The game ends when one player, or one team in the case of a four-player game, has placed all of their control markers. That player or team is the winner!

  • War Chest is an easy-to-learn, tricky-to-master, elegant battlefield strategy game. Game play is simple and available to even non-gamers, whilst at the same time presenting depth of play and replayability.
  • The game is presented in a box that appears to be old and well loved. It is  an ancient game, newly rediscovered and presented as it would have once been gifted to the sons and daughters of kings, as a way for them to learn battlefield strategy.

Stone Age Anniversary Announced by Z-Man Games

Aug 25, 2018

Stone Age Anniversary edition celebrates ten years of this beloved worker placement game.

At the dawn of civilization, our early ancestors faced a constant battle for survival. Over time, they discovered new tools and techniques to improve their lives and the lives of their descendants. For ten years, fans of Stone Age have taken on the role of a human in this bygone era. Beginning with archaic tools, workers have been carefully sent out to collect wood, stone, and gold to attain higher levels of knowledge, build sturdier structures, and create a solid foundation of human civilization. Working under the bright, warm sun of summer, the tribe has grown and thrived.

Now the winter wind has blown in and the biting cold spreads. A dusting of crisp, white snow covers the ground. The kids marvel at the snow, sliding on the slick surface and throwing snowballs at each other. Winter is not all fun and games though. Wild animals stalk the edge of the camp, waiting for their opportunity. The snow continues to fall and temperatures continue to drop. The tribe must quickly work to gather resources, insulating buildings for warmth and storing food to avoid starvation, in order to survive the long winter.

This limited edition features a beautiful double-sided board, upgraded components, and new options for playing in the bitter cold of winter.

Stone Age Anniversary will be $79.99 and release in Q4. Prepare for winter by pre-ordering your copy from Z-Man or your local retailer.

CMON Announces Munchkin Dungeon

July 30, 2018

CMON Limited announced that they have teamed with Steve Jackson Games to design and publish Munchkin Dungeon based on the award-winning card game.

Munchkin Dungeon captures the same playful sense of humor of the original card game, while providing a completely new experience. It is the first collaboration between designers Eric M. Lang (Blood RageRising SunArcadia Quest) and Andrea Chiarvesio (Richard the LionheartKingsburgHyperborea).

In the game, 3-6 players will enter a dungeon and attempt to collect the most treasure and achieve the highest character level. They will have to push their luck if they want to be successful in their adventure, but if they come across a foe that’s a little too big to face, they can always run away. If players choose to take the cowardly (albeit occasionally logical) route of avoiding danger, they will earn Shame which will be counted against them at the end of the game. You can’t be a hero without exhibiting a little bravery!

Munchkin Dungeon comes to life on the tabletop with highly-detailed miniature figures and illustrations by legendary artist Jon Kovalic. Fans of the Munchkin series of games will feel right at home with the whimsical art that Kovalic is famous for, and players old and new will have hours of fun exploring dungeons, fighting monsters, and betraying their closest friends!

Munchkin Dungeon is coming to Kickstarter in 2019. Stay tuned for updates on the CMON Facebook page as the campaign approaches.
