Trade & Troll Launches April 25th

trade and troll
April 21st, 2017
Long ago, in a remote village at the edge of the kingdom, lived a Troll. This Troll roamed the streets demanding a toll from any traveller he met; if they refused to pay, he would steal their trousers. 
One day the Troll stopped a merchant travelling along the road. As usual, he demanded the merchant pay the toll in order to pass undisturbed otherwise he would steal his trousers. The merchant, who was very cunning, made the Troll a proposal…Welcome to Trade & Troll! 
Good & Evil Games is proud to announce its first Kickstarter projects: Trade & Troll, launching on Kickstarter April 25th!
 
Trade & Troll is a European-style game about commerce, resource management and bidding. The game has been developed by Emanuele Buffagni & Giulio Torlai and has been fully illustrated by Monica Bauleo.
 
2-6 players, 45-90 minutes, ages 14+
 
Trade & Troll is set in a fantasy kingdom, where each player represents a merchant whose goal is to arrange an efficient production line from the collection of basic resources to their manufacturing and consequent trading in market stands. During the game, players’ main goal is to enlarge their trading company, gathering different Resources to sell in their Stalls and creating Markets combining different Stalls. To connect one building to another, players must cobble new roads, but beware! Your opponents may use your roads as well for their trades!
 
Unfortunately, things become more complicated as a Troll arrives in the village and your rivals start offering him money to block your routes! Get control of him and you will be able to block your opponents’ trade routes! In many ways, the game is a balancing act. You have to think about what you want to do, how you’re going to do it and how many coins you’re going to invest on it.

April 15th, 2017

Journey To Ragnarok, a brand new project for 5th Edition (5e) about Norse Mythology is now live on kickstarter and over achieveing day by day.

The idea behind Journey To Ragnarok was to merge our biggest passions: the 5th Edition of the most famous role playing game of all time and, of course, Norse Mythology.

Every single event, NPC or encounter that will cross Adventurers’ path is the result of more than 15 years of love and research, readings and travels.

Our intent is to let the Adventurers discover and explore the true origins of Norse Mythology, that has deeply influenced Fantasy literature, games,comics and movies.

The author is Michele Paroli, an architect and a graphic designer but first of all a role-playing gamer and Dungeon Master. Then there’s Antonio dell’Aquila, in charge of marketing and comunication activities, a product manager in the everyday life, but also a roleplaying gamer and dungeon master since 1999.

The core team counts many veteran DMs and adventures designers and we’re proud to tell that we were part of the organization and DMs of the first ever D&D Adventurers League Epics Event in Italy @Lucca Comics&Games 2016 and @Play Modena 2017.

Maximum Apocalypse Hits Kickstarter!

April 6th, 2017

Mike Gnade, creator of the Kickstarter hit Brass Empire: a Steampunk Deckbuilding game, is returning to Kickstarter to seek funding for their new game, Maximum Apocalypse.

Maximum Apocalypse has been in development for over 2 years, and will launch on Kickstarter with the full art and design complete. The Kickstarter campaign will feature the game at $40.

 

In Maximum Apocalypse, civilization has already fallen. The players are survivors of the apocalypse whose mission is to survive the hostile landscape. The game map is randomly generated and different every time that you play. On each turn, a player can use up to four actions to explore the map, play cards, equip weapons, scavenge for resources, draw cards or battle off monsters.

Picking a unique survivor class within the group, players must plan their strategy and work together while leaning on their survivor’s strengths in order to defeat monsters and avoid starvation. For example, the Fireman is deadly up close with his ax and can easily chop down monsters; meanwhile the stealthy Hunter is great at scouting the map and avoiding traps — but roaming monsters are gathering quickly and time is running out. If you are overwhelmed by monsters or die of starvation, the players lose. If they can find enough gas and get it back to their van to escape, they all win and live to play another scenario.

Do you have what it takes to survive the apocalypse? Find out in Maximum Apocalypse: a cooperative roguelike adventure.
