Osprey Games Announces Wildlands Fantasy Miniatures Game

Feb 22, 2018

Osprey Games is delighted to announce its first miniatures board game, Martin Wallace’s Wildlands, scheduled for worldwide release in Q4 2018.

In this fantasy game for two to four players, rival factions struggle for power in the ruins of a once-great kingdom, now known simply as the Wildlands. Each skirmish sees players attempt to outwit, outmanoeuvre, and overpower their opponents as they fight for riches and glory, scoring points by defeating enemy characters and collecting treasure. Familiarity with your favoured faction will help, but adaptability is the key to victory, as a semi-randomized set-up and double-sided board means that no two battles will tell the same tale.

The vivid world of Wildlands is brought to life through the artwork, board, and the twenty unique miniatures included in the game. Sculpted by Bobby Jackson and Tim Prow, they portray a wide range of characters, from powerful wizards and cunning gnomes to hulking beasts and mighty warriors.

The great evil has fallen, and has taken the capital with it. Where once there was a kingdom, there is now only the WildlandsIn a lawless fantasy world, you must band together for survival, treasure, or maybe even glory. Players control rival factions, each with a unique deck of cards dictating their abilities across the battlefield. Some focus on ranged prowess, some on raw strength, and others on the bond between characters, offering a wide range of playstyles to explore.

Osprey Games to release Odins Ravens

September 2nd, 2015

Osprey Games is thrilled to announce that it will be publishing a new edition of Odin’s Ravens by Thorsten Gimmler! Despite its enduring popularity, this classic family game, in which players build a board out of cards and race their ravens around the world, has been out of print for many years.

In February 2016, Osprey Games will release a new edition featuring all-new artwork from the celebrated Swedish fantasy artist Johan Egerkrans.

Duncan Molloy, Osprey Games’ Games Developer, enthused:

Odin’s Ravens is one of the most fun, quick-play family games I’ve ever encountered. The chance to create a new edition of this game as part of the Osprey Games line-up was just too good an opportunity to pass up. By combining Thorsten Gimmler’s game design with the artwork of Johan Egerkrans, we are producing something really special – a great game that is also a little work of art.

The King is Dead available at GenCon

June 26th, 2015

Osprey Games is pleased to announce that its first board game, The King is Dead, will be available in limited quantities for purchase at GenCon.

The game is set in Britain just after the death of King Arthur. Players are potential claimants to the throne who operate behind the scenes manipulating the power held by various factions, to make sure that in the end, they have the most influence in the most powerful faction. It is a dangerous game, however, and if the players cause too much chaos, they will leave the door open for Saxon Invasion.

Created by Peer Sylvester, this game of politics and power-struggles works equally well with 2, 3, or 4 players. The game will be available through general release in September.  If you can’t make it to GenCon you can preorder through Osprey’s website now.
