Ares Games to publish the 2nd edition of Quartermaster General WW2

Feb 6, 2019

Ares announces an agreement with Griggling Games to publish worldwide the second edition of Quartermaster General WW2, a fast-paced strategy game created by Ian Brody and first released in 2015, with nearly 10,000 copies sold in English, French, and Russian. The new edition is planned to release in the second half of 2019.

In Quartermaster General WW2, players take command of the major powers of the Second World War, and supply is crucial to keep their armies and navies fighting. They are challenged to destroy enemies’ supply lines to lead them to surrender. The game is suited for 2 to 6 players, playing one or more countries on either the Axis or Allied team. Each major power has a unique set of strikingly illustrated cards with which to muster their forces, represented by wooden army and navy pieces. The game is simple to learn and quick to setup – but difficult to master, and each game plays differently, ensuring replayability.

First Edition Quartermaster General was nominated for several awards: the 2015 International Gamers Award for General Strategy: Multi-player Game, as well as the 2014 Golden Geek 2014 for Wargame of the Year. In addition, the leading French language board game website awarded Quartermaster General WW2 the Tric Trac 2016 d’or (Gold Medal) for Wargame of the Year. Three expansions were released for the game – “Air Marshal”, “Alternate Histories”, and “Prelude”, and three games using its engine: “Victory or Dead”, “Quartermaster General 1914”, and “Cold War”.

The second edition of Quartermaster General WW2, by Ares Games, represents a careful revision of the original game, improving its ease of play, clarity, play balance, and more. Refreshed packaging artwork heralds the improvements to make this great game even better.

Z-Man Announces Kingsburg Expansion Module #6

Feb 3, 2019

Z-Man Games has announced the release of Kingsburg Expansion Module #6, a set of familiar faces with all new abilities.

The King’s advisors have convened once again to pool together their collective resources in hopes of saving Kingsburg for yet another year. Only this time, their offerings will change at some point during the game.

The premise is simple. Essentially, at the start of each productive season, a new advisor reward is revealed and placed on top of its spot on the board, replacing the reward players have grown familiar with. Eventually, each advisor will feature a brand-new effect, allowing players access to the advisor’s new reward while removing its existing reward for the remainder of the game.

For example, the General originally focuses on battle, recruiting 2 soldiers and secretly looking at the top card of the enemy deck. The new reward tile replaces that effect with the reward to gain 2 gold or 2 wood or 2 stone. The Wizard normally rewards players with 4 gold, but with the new advisor tile placed on his space, he will now reward players with 5 victory points. These subtle differences can dramatically change strategies for fans of the game who feel like they’ve fully explored what Kingsburg has to offer.

Whether you’re a die-hard Kingsburg fan or you’ve just been itching for an excuse to get this beloved classic back to the table, look no further than Module #6 , sold exclusively on the Z-Man website and available now for just $6.99!

Note: Expansion Module #6 is already included in the newest version of Kingsburg. This expansion is intended to offer owners of the first edition the chance to purchase the expansion separately.

 

Next Move Games Announces Tuki

Jan 30, 2019

Next Move Games are very excited to announce the next great game in their catalog, Tuki!

This incredible title was designed by Grzegorz Rejchtman (best known for the popular Ubongo series) and illustrated by Chris Quilliams. In game, players will build challenging inukshuks using a variety of three dimension pieces.

In the Inuit language, “tukilik” is used to define an object that carries a message, and the northern landscapes are densely populated with such objects. The most well known of these are the inukshuk, that is, structures of rough stones traditionally used by Inuit people as a landmark or commemorative sign, with the stones often being stacked in the form of a human figure.

During each turn in Tuki, you attempt to construct an inukshuk based on the die face rolled using your stones and blocks of snow. Players have only a limited number of pieces with which to construct the inukshuk, so you’ll need to be creative and use the three-dimensional pieces in multiple ways, such as to counterbalance other pieces or even build on top of existing pieces. A solution always exists — you just need to discover it!

You can choose from two levels of difficulty when playing Tuki to level the playing ground between newcomers and experts. Be swift, yet precise, and transform your stones into messengers of the north…

WizKids Announces Kibble Scuffle, it’s time to feed your cats!

Jan 28, 2019

WizKids is excited to announce that Kibble Scuffle, an adorable romp through feeding time with your mischievous feline friends, is coming soon!

In Kibble Scuffle, it’s time to feed your cats!

Players compete to feed their cats the most points in food cubes by the end of the game. They will send cats to Food Bowls by playing cards, and resolve the cats’ abilities as they arrive. When there are at least 5 cats at any bowl after resolving abilities, the Feeding Phase begins. Players are able to feed their cats and collect food cubes, which are worth varying amounts of points. When a player reaches 20 points or more at the end of a Feeding Phase, the game ends and the player who has the most food cubes wins.

There are several different kinds of feline friends to feed in Kibble Scuffle—from the generous Mama Cat, who allows another cat at the bowl to feed, to the mischievous Trickster Cat, who exchanges food cubes between bowls. The game even features four adorable Kittens, who draw their fellow kittens to the Food Bowls. Kibble Scuffle’s innovative packaging doesn’t just hold the game—the box also doubles as the game’s Cat Food Box, allowing players to have the most immersive feline feeding experience possible! Kibble Scuffle arrives in game stores soon, so be sure to preorder it today!

Jan 26, 2019

For the Galactic Empire, conquering a planet is only the beginning of the battle. Massive vehicles like AT-STs and elite shock troops like Imperial Death Troopers may be effective at sweeping across battlefields and capturing new territory, but they rarely stick around to hold this ground. Soon, however, you’ll gain a powerful tool that can help quell any opposition that might rise against Imperial occupation.

Fantasy Flight Games is happy to announce the TX-225 GAVw Occupier Combat Assault Tank Unit Expansion for Star Wars™: Legion!

Few symbols of Imperial occupation are more readily apparent than a TX-225 GAVw Occupier Combat Assault Tank. Heavily armed and capable of carrying either cargo or personnel, one of these tanks can be a versatile asset to stormtrooper detachments on occupation duty. With the TX-225 GAVw Occupier Combat Assault Tank Unit Expansion, you’ll find a single finely sculpted, menacing TX-225 miniature that can work in tandem with your ground troops to impose the Empire’s will wherever it’s been assigned. This beautiful miniature is accompanied by the full assortment of unit cards, upgrade cards, and tokens that you’ll need to add one to your armies.
