Renegade Announces Revolution of 1828, Coming in April

Nov 18, 2018

Renegade Game Studios has announced the upcoming release of Revolution of 1828, a 2 player game where you are trying to become America’s 7th President.

It is 1828 and the time for elections has come around again in this newly-formed democracy we call the United States of America. John Quincy Adams and Andrew Jackson are the candidates vying for the people’s votes. For the first time in history, this grand campaign is also fought on the pages of newspapers and the eager public audience. This was an election that found its way into history books with its yet unseen ruthlessness and malevolence. This was America’s first smear campaign.

In this two-player game, you are trying to become the next President of the United States! To reach this lofty goal, each player will try to take Election tiles that suit you best and hinder your opponent’s campaign. Election tiles allow you to garner the allegiance of Electors and use the power of Smear Campaigns to skew the populace in your favor. If you also use the powerful Campaign Actions to your advantage and have the press look the other way, nothing should stand in your way!

Gain the most votes by the end of the game and start your work as America’s 7th President!

Number of Players: 2
For Ages: 12+
Playing Time: 30-60 minutes
MSRP: $30.00

Renegade Game Studios and Huch! Announce Reprint of Trajan

Oct 7, 2018

Renegade Game Studios and Huch! are excited to announce a reprint of the Roman development game, Trajan! In this award-winning game (designed by Stefan Feld, illustrated by Jo Hartwig), players balance politics, military, trading, and other parts of Roman culture while enjoying a rondel mechanic to plan out their actions.

You can find this title on game shelves beginning December 2018.

Pre-order from your Friendly Local Game Store now or through the Renegade Store

110 AD – the Roman Empire is at its height of glory, ruled by the “optimus princeps,” Emperor Trajan. All borders are secured, and people can focus again on the empire’s internal matters — ROME. Take your chances and boost your power! With the proper tactics, you may outmaneuver your opponents and eventually claim victory.

Players try to score victory points (VP) by taking advantage of opportunities with six different actions. At the end of the game, the player with the most VP is the winner.

To succeed, you must allocate action markers to the trays of your action circle cunningly, trying to catch the best time for certain actions. On the one hand, it is important to make use of sudden opportunities, such as to get hold of attractive tiles. On the other hand, you must not neglect to give other players a hard time at crucial times. To accomplish this, you may need to scheme some of your actions a few turns in advance.

Regardless of the outcome of your first game, you will become more experienced with each new game, always learning new refinements to your strategy.

Kids on Bikes RPG Available Now!

Sept 25, 2018

Kids on Bikes is a Collaborative Storytelling RPG set in small towns with big adventure and it is now available from Renegade Game Studios!

The door to the old house creaks open, the rust on the hinges groaning as you see the dust floating like spores in the air inside. By the faint light of your cheap flashlights, you see the stairs to the upper floor, its railings gnarled and broken like crooked teeth. Their curve makes the stairs seem almost like a hungry grin, and you wonder if their age will support your weight. Still, you must go in.

The only question is who will go first?

In Kids on Bikes, you’ll take on the roles of everyday people grappling with strange, terrifying, and very, very powerful forces that they cannot defeat, control, or even fully understand. The only way to face them is to work together, use your strengths, and know when you just have to run as fast as you can.
