A Study In Emerald Returns

A Study In Emerald 2Treefrog will be releasing a new, updated, modified, streamlined version of A Study in Emerald later this year. After many hours of discussions with various focus groups we have decided to call the game ‘A Study in Emerald, 2nd edition’. If all goes to plan then the game will be ready to ship from our German printers, Ludo Fact, in September.

The new version of the game sports all new artwork by Ian O’Toole and Tatiana Kuzilova and a streamlined set of rules, which will hopefully help those folks who found the first version a tad complicated. Although the game is simpler it still retains the feeling of paranoia from the first version. What I have done my best to do is remove inconsistencies and reduce the number of available actions to the minimum.

You can check out the new artwork here on the A Study in Emerald game page.

A Study in Emerald will be produced in co operation with a number of other companies, including:

Phalanx Poland
Asterion (Italy)
Arclight (Japan)
Ediciones MasQueOca (Spain)
Schwerkraft-Verlag (Germany)

The English language version will be distributed in the UK by Esdevium, Canada by Lion Rampant, and Australia by Good Games. We will announce our US distributor at a later stage.

The rules will be posted to this site in the next few weeks.

Please note that the game comes without a free poster.

Ships

Ships coverTreefrog Games are very pleased to announce that the third and final subscription game, ‘Ships’, will be going to press soon. Almost all of the files are ready to go and we hope to have the game ready to ship within the next three months. The game is being printed by Whatz games, who are based in China. so there will be an additional delay for shipping.

As most of you know, there will be two versions of the game, the standard edition and the limited edition. The limited version has a slightly different cover and wooden ships instead of counters.

Artwork for the game is posted on the page for Ships. The rules will be posted soon, just making final corrections.
