Monety w różnych stylach

Czy załapaliście na poprzednią kampanię na amerykańskiej platformie Kickstarter, gdzie można było zdobyć trochę nietypowych monet? Jeśli nie, to Artana Games wystartowała ze zbiórką na nowy rzut monet – w tym powiązanych z kulturą Japonii, Persji czy Mongolii. Akcja trwa do 10 października 2015 roku.

Artana, publisher of the recent Kickstarter success Tesla vs. Edison, today launched a new Kickstarter campaign: The Best Damn Gaming Coins Ever – TWO! The campaign features seven new thematic sets including Chinese, Mongol, Indian, Persian, and Japanese coins. Also available are the company’s 13 original theme sets from the first Best Damn Gaming Coins Ever campaign which has sold over 1 million coins to date. Responding to customer demands for more choice, all coins will now be offered in three different types of modular and integrated packages – PiecePacks, ThemePacks, and DeluxeCollections.

“We are delighted to introduce these exciting new sets to our customers as well as bring back the old favorites,” said Artana creative director, Dirk Knemeyer. “The original coins campaign focused largely on western and fantasy themes. Here, we wanted to round out the collection and tell stories from a more global perspective to include Asian narratives.”

The new coins bring Artana’s total numismatic offerings to 20 thematic sets spanning the breadth of history as well as many fantasy motifs. Sets are designed to follow a common format sharing the same five sizes and finishes. Coins can be mixed-and-matched among themes and combined to provide a richer gaming experience.

“While the original thematic sets were well-received, many of our customers kept asking us for individual coins from specific sets,” said Artana president, Marcus Muller. “Our new PiecePacks provide just that option for maximum customization. Those seeking pre-configured sets can still also purchase individual ThemeSets from single themes or one of our various DeluxeCollections featuring premium coins from several themes in one package.”

The Best Damn Gaming Coins Ever – TWO! runs now through October 9, 2015. Delivery is expected by May 2016.

 Jeszcze więcej monet

Tym razem zbiórka trwa na europejskiej platformie crowdfundingowej czyli Spieleschmiede. Kampania Epic Coins od Infinity Plus One trwa do 18 października 2015 roku.

The sun has long disappeared behind the ridge of the mountain. In the moonlight, dark smoke is rising into the shallow night. From a gap at the foot of the Smithy Mountain sounds a deep song, the dwarfs finished working and are on the way to their families. In their hiking bags they carry their day’s work. Epic coins, made ​​of real metal, fantasy themed design but real world detail and heft, feature high relief detailing. Tomorrow, on the market in the elven capital, they will shine golden and silver and be appraised by numerous merchants.

You can now support such epic coins at the Spieleschmiede. Upgrade your cardboard and tokens and use them with your favorite tabletop games. The fantasy themed designs feature lions, griffons, dragons, wolves and stag as well as King’s faces and mythical hieroglyphics. These coins are going to bring a very special and unique flair onto your gaming tables.

Średniowiecze i wikingowie

Lekkich gier wojennych o ciekawej mechanice nigdy nie za wiele! Warto przyjrzeć się zbiórce na najnowszy projekt ze stajni Minion GamesSaga of the Northmen. Pieniądze można wpłacać do 13 października 2015 roku.

Glory awaits intrepid adventurers of all ages in the Saga of the Northmen, a Dark Ages wargame of shifting alliances and area control. Through deft use of influence cards, you do battle with other chieftains to gain control of the 7 major kingdoms of Europe. Forge alliances and then move your armies and fleets to plunder while completing secret objectives unknown to others. Earn the most points from plunder and completed objectives to be crowned Supreme Chieftain!

We at Minion Games are excited to be collaborating with designer Scott Leibbrandt on releasing his second published game. Believe it or not, we discovered this game at a local game design meetup. I really felt good about SotN as I think it fits a nice niche of easy to play and short time commitment. Yet SotN introduces some more interesting game mechanics to people who might otherwise be turned off by war-games. In the game you draft region cards which makes for simple game-play. A certain amount of luck in the game helps equalize the playing field to allow everyone to enjoy the game and have a chance to be victorious. I’ve seen gray-haired wargamers love this game and I’ve seen young players pick it up quickly.

Designed for 2-4 Players, Ages 13+, and 30-40 minute game play. With a simple card drafting play-style, Saga of the Northmen is a simple to learn and easy to play intro to area control and war-gaming for young and old.

In Saga of the Northmen, you control a clan of mighty Northmen. Each round, you will use your influence cards to place Influence cubes on the board in an attempt to gain control of the seven major kingdoms of Europe. Influence cards are not only used to gain control of kingdoms, but also populate Europe’s neutral regions with Plunder (VPs). When the board has been filled with 15 plunder, kingdom control for the round is determined. The player with the most influence cubes in a kingdom gains control of that kingdom.

Once alliances have been established, you will maneuver the armies, fleets, and heroes of the kingdoms that have fallen under your sway. Kingdoms move in a set order, with mighty juggernauts charging headlong into battle, while smaller, but craftier, kingdoms wait to make their moves later in the round. Watch carefully what neutral regions your opponents aim for! When two or more players meet on the field of battle, only the player with the most powerful military will be victorious and carry off the plunder. Also, do not forget about your trade route cards. If you can link the kingdom on a trade route card to neutral region containing the resources it desires, the wealth (VPs) will be far greater than any plunder.

Pillage or trade, in the end, only the wealthiest Viking will be the winner!

Kosmiczne starcie w duecie

Victory Point Games wysyła właśnie na półki sklepowe swoją najnowszą grę czyli Conquest at Kismet.

Conquest at Kismet, from new game designer Jay Vales, is a two-player, turn-based, head-to-head card game set in the fictional galaxy of Raccroc, using a lottery-like method of resolving battle. This allows for a very small table footprint while having a healthy mix of tactics and luck, as players battle one another until one of their Motherships is destroyed.

Nowa gra od Horrible Games

Włoski wydawca ujawnia kolejne szczegóły swojego najnowszego projektu czyli gry Potion Explosion.

It’s time for the final exams at the Horribilorum Sorcery Academy for Witty Witches and Wizards! Take Ingredients from the Dispenser to brew your potions… and grab the Student of the Year Award!

Potion Explosion is a combo-fueled strategy-puzzle game by Horrible Games, developed by Lorenzo Silva, Andrea Crespi and Stefano Castelli and illustrated by Giulia Ghigini.

In a typical Potion Explosion turn, you will take an Ingredient marble from the Dispenser and watch the others fall. If you connect marbles of the same color, they explode… and you can take them too! Complete your Potions using the marbles you collect, and drink them to unleash their magical power. Remember, though, that to win the Student of the Year Award, being quick won’t be enough: you’ll also need to brew the most valuable Potions!

Potion Explosion will officially be launched at the Essen SPIEL fair, that will run from 8 to 11 October 2015. Pay us a visit at our booth! The first people to buy a copy of Potion Explosion will also receive a t-shirt for free (while stocks last) at one condition: if you want it, you have to wear it in front of us! You can find us in Hall 3, booth P-108.

Nowości od Break From Reality Games

Przeczytajcie szybko naszą recenzję kooperacyjnej symulacji czasu rzeczywistego (wyśmienita) Damage Report i szybko wesprzyjcie zbiórkę na dodatek On Fire.

Our first full expansion to last year’s release: Damage Report. On Fire adds 3 new scenarios, 2 new tool types, an alien and robots! We have a Kickstarter up RIGHT NOW ending October 2nd.  All backers will get an additional 4th scenario: The Screaming Skies. This is our first Away Mission, and it is a big promo that includes 12 dice and 2 more module cards.

The Kickstarter offers an option to get the expansion for $35.00. For $45.00 you can choose the expansion with our new Deluxe Box that we are making to fit the base game, as well as a yet-to-be-released expansion called System Critical. And folks new to Damage Report can back at $99.00 and get the base game, On Fire, and the Deluxe Box. All levels $20+ include the promo scenario.

The Reality Simulation System is what makes playing Damage Report so unique.  This real time game is not about how fast you can solve a puzzle, or roll the dice. Instead the RSS creates a time dilation effect that creates tension and excitement.

The dual timing system creates inter-dependencies between the players, the ship’s condition, and the game’s AI. This speeds up game play when things are going well for players, which in turn makes communication, and planning difficult.The net result is the elimination of an alpha player from being able to take control, as happens with many co-op games. When things are going poorly, the game play slows down. This allows players to plan a bit, and focus their efforts to do what needs to be done to recover.   Damage Report is fast paced, exciting, and full of tension. It is a table top game unlike any other –  as the players feel like they are really part of a team in a crisis. The game is both modular, and scenario based which means that it has a ton of replay value. The RSS ensures that every time you play, will be a unique experience.

To nie wszystkie nowości od amerykańskiego wydawcy! Na listopad przewiduje sprzedaż niezwykłych mat do gry!

GripMats are designed exclusively for table top gaming. Developed over the last 4 years, these are finally coming to distribution in November. GripMats are grippy, not sticky. They keep miniatures and tile games in place, while protecting table top surfaces. They also look great!

What makes GripMats unique?  They are grippy on both sides of the mat.  Thus they are able to hold miniatures (like X-Wing), and games (like Catan, or Eclipse) in place. They avoid table knocks, bumps, and clumsy hands. They are also waterproof, stain-proof, UV protected, and will not crease or tear. They were designed with table top gaming in mind. They also help dice and card games by keeping nice under control, and cards neatly in place.
