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

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.

Harness the power of your vocabulary in this exciting, monster-battling, loot-collecting word game. In Spell Smashers, now available to preorder from Renegade Game Studios, you combine your letter cards to spell words, smashing fearsome monsters and their even more fearsome adjectives!
When you deal damage to a monster, you gain precious coins. When you defeat a monster, you collect that monster as a trophy … and gain a new letter to use later on! But beware — as you battle these dangerous creatures, you receive wounds, which are difficult letter combinations that could ruin your day.
Between battles, visit the local town and spend your hard-earned loot to outfit yourself with powerful gear, take on new quests, buy devious potions, or grab an ale at the tavern as you boast about your battle scars. Set your sights on fame and glory as you smash monsters with your spelling skills and rid the world of evil!
