Martin and I are off on our summer vacation tomorrow and will return on the 17th December. Urgent emails will be dealt with but the rest will be answered on our return.
Wishing you all the very best over the festive season and hope 2015 is a good one..for all of us!
In Flanders Field
For those interested in a light, quick playing game on World War One please check out In Flanders Field. The game has been created with the co operation of the Imperial War Museum, plays with two to four players and takes around 30 minutes to play. All of the artwork is by Peter Dennis.
BRASS goes mobile!
Press Release from Phalanx and Cublo Games.
BRASS goes mobile!
One of the best games in the World (ranked 14th on BoardGameGeek) goes mobile!
As in the original game, players take the roles of entrepreneurs attempting to make the highest amount of money from various industries of the time. The players start the game at the beginning of the Canal Age and end after the development of railways.
This year, at the SPIEL Game Fair in Essen you will have the first opportunity to see the game in progress. We will be presenting the concept art illustrations and the first screenshots. You will also have the chance to meet and speak with the designers. A lot of work is ahead of them, but we are sure that playing this game will be a big pleasure for the fans of Brass. The designers assure that also those people who don’t know the original Brass will have fun and that the amount of rules will not overwhelm them.
Treefrog at Essen 2014
We will be attending the Spiel show in Essen, as usual. We will be in Hall 1, Stand F160.
There will be about three hundred limited edition copies of Mythotopia and Onward to Venus available for sale. The price for each will be 45 Euros. Please note that we are not taking pre order, so first come, first served. If you are not attending Essen there will be limited edition copies available from Cool Stuff, Inc in North America and Gameslore in the UK.
We will also have some standard edition copies of each for sale, which will be 35 Euros each.
Each copy of the limited edition of Mythotopia will contain two replacement counters for A Study in Emerald (William Morris and Wilhelm Steiber). We will also provide Cool Stuff, Inc and Gameslore with replacement counters. We will post more on how to get replacements at a later time.
(The third in the subscription series, Ships, will be produced in 2015, hopefully in the first quarter.)
