SAS – Rogue Regiment!

Stay quiet, stay alive! SAS – Rogue Regiment is an upcoming WW2 stealth game where players move quietly across the game board, assassinating Nazi soldiers, and destroying outposts. Work together to get out alive!

Each character starts by choosing their own operative. Each operative has their own special ability, such as being able to use disguises to slip past guards. Gather your equipment and head into battle!

There are two main modes of operation during each session of gameplay: stealth and combat. During the stealth sections, players will need to use all of their abilities and ingenuity to enter the battlefield and complete as many objectives as possible.

While you are sneaking around, enemy forces will be traversing the area. Their movements will be determined by event cards drawn every turn. Make sure to approach your enemies quietly and cover your tracks. Take down as many soldiers as possible before all hell breaks loose.

But don’t lose hope if you trip an alarm – you have a gun after all. Once you are detected, you will need to run and gun your way out of the area. But be careful – the place will be swarmed with soldiers very quickly. Make sure to set up a defensible position on your way out in order to keep all your allies alive. When all of you are at the extraction point, hop in your jeep and get out of there!

If you are able to complete all the objectives before leaving the area, you win the encounter! Complete numerous missions all over Europe to win the war!

SAS – Rogue Regiment comes out in August, 2023! Back your copy here!

Pest!

The contagion is here! Take on dangerous diseases in Pest, a competitive euro board game where players take on the roles of city leaders trying to save their people. Gather your herbs and medicine – this isn’t going to be pretty.

The empire has fallen. The country is in shambles due to a rampant plague that is taking the world by storm. Those who should be leading on the Empire’s Council are either cowards or dropping like flies. Only those who remain in the Great Houses may be able to save their home from further tragedy…

Each player chooses a House that their leader represents. Each turn, players will have to face a new Pest card that will dictate where the infection has spread across their nation. Players will then have to respond, both by stopping the plague, but also trying to build infrastructure and defences for the following rounds.

Once you have cured a section of your population from the plague, assign members of your workforce to perform important tasks, such as gathering resources, working as emissaries, and rebuilding city structures. Take the best and brightest to research new tactics and techniques to deal with the plague, leading you to become a powerful political player.

Once you have completed your three eras of play, tally your scores. Whoever has the most points will be deemed the Hero of the Empire, and win the game!

Pest comes out in May, 2024! Back your copy here!

Elden Ring: The Board Game

Welcome back to the world, Tarnished. Plunge back into The Lands Between in Elden Ring: The Board Game! Explore the world, face off against dangerous monsters, and gather resources in order to complete this massive campaign!

Since The Shattering, The Lands Between has become a place of chaos. The Great Runes have been claimed, turning their god-like wielders into nothing more than corrupted madmen. Only one can return all the Great Runes together in order to re-form the Elden Ring, and ascend to the role of Elden Lord… will it be you?

Choose your Tarnished from eight different options, each with their own starting quests and equipment: the Hero, the Samurai, the Astrologer, the Prophet, the Bandit, the Vagabond, the Confessor, or the Prisoner! Choose to either go the adventure alone, or travel with up to three other Tarnished. Traverse a modular world, discover side quests, and defeat dangerous monsters, from Rotten Strays to the Grafted King himself!

Will you take your place on the throne as the Elden Lord? Or will you be corrupted by the Great Runes yourself?

Elden Ring: The Board Game comes out in May, 2024! Back your copy here!

The Last of Us: Escape the Dark!

It’s time to escape quarantine! In The Last of Us: Escape the Dark, up to five players will need to travel far and wide in order to find resources, craft new items, and find a new home…

Play as a survivor making your way from a FEDRA quarantine zone to Jackson, Wyoming, within twelve days. Travel across the board to different important locations to scavenge for food, supplies, weapons, and other useful crafting materials. Make sure to choose your path carefully, as every location will trigger different story beats and events you will need to overcome.

But resource management is far from the only consideration you need to make out in the wild. There are numerous enemies you may come face to face with, including Hunters, FEDRA agents, and/or Infected. Use item cards to make attacks and add dice to weapon damage.

The win condition for the game is that all survivors must live and be in Jackson by the end of the twelfth day. Your strategy to get there is all up to you. No matter what you face, whether you could maybe save another survivor or find a stash of goods, there is only one rule.

Survive.

The Last of Us: Escape the Dark comes out in December, 2023! Back your copy here!

Age of Comics: The Golden Years!

It is time to build your comic empire! Age of Comics: The Golden Years throws you into the 1940s and 1950s as you invent new comic characters, build entirely new genres, and establish yourself as a comic book icon!

The objective of the game is to obtain as many Victory Points as possible by performing a variety of publishing tasks. Publishing new comics, gaining a reputation and a fan base, creating work of a high quality, and total income from your work will result in a winning score. But for all the Scrooge-McDuck’s out there, beware – at the end of the game, there will be taxes to pay!

As per all the ways to gain points above, there are plenty of ways to win. You can focus on expanding your publishing empire by sending out sales reps, build-up your creative teams, or just developing lots of new comic ideas to give to your audience.

While every choice has a trade-off, some choices are bigger than others. Do you want to spend time coming up with a new comic idea whole-cloth? Or do you want to rip off one of your competitors? Maybe your want to work exclusively in one genre of comic? Or do you just want to give your audience a whole spectrum of genres? The choice is up to you.

Age of Comics: The Golden Years comes out September, 2023! Back your copy here!
