Toronto, ON – Feb 1, 2020.

I Will Never Grow Up Games and designer Andrew Zimdahl are headed to Kickstarter to seek funding for their new board game, Feudal Endeavor, a simultaneous bidding auction game with resource management, tableau building and set collecting in the Golden Age of Imperial Russia.

Feudal Endeavor has been in development for 2 years and will finally launch on Kickstarter with the full art and design complete. The Kickstarter will feature the game at a base pledge level of CA$49 (approximately US$37). On funding in the first 72 hours everyone who pledges during the campaign will also receive Ulterior Motives, an expansion pack for Feudal Endeavor, free of cost (available at retail as an additional purchase)!

About Feudal Endeavor

You are invited to step in to the role of the noble lords and ladies of Russia’s Golden Age. Clandestinely acquire new lands, battle your rivals and compete for prestige and the Empress’s favor.

Feudal Endeavor is a simultaneous bidding auction game with resource management, tableau building and set collecting for 2 to 6 players that plays in a quick 10 minutes per player set in the Golden Age of Imperial Russia.

You will take on the role of the head of one of six prominent noble families in 18th century Imperial Russia under the rule of Empress Catherine the Great. Compete against your fellow nobles to earn prestige and the favor of the Empress as you expand your fiefdom, manage its rich resources and perform the Empress’s bidding.

Feudal Endeavor is played over 5 phases (bidding and resource management, family endowment, auction resolution, Empress’s bidding, restock), with players making most of their decisions simultaneously. The game ends immediately following the Empress’s Bidding phase in which any player has completed their fiefdom or the land deeds deck has been fully depleted. The player with the most prestige wins the favor of the Empress, Catherine the Great (and the game, of course)!

Announcing the Epic Battles Multiplayer Expansion for X-Wing

July 23, 2019

Whether fought between the Galactic Empire and Rebel Alliance, the Resistance and the First Order, or the Galactic Republic and the Separatist Alliance, the Star Wars saga is defined by massive space battles that pit groups of heavily-armed warships and dozens of smaller starfighters against one another. Soon, you’ll have the chance to enter these battles and test your mettle in some of the most intense and chaotic space battles in the Star Wars galaxy.

Fantasy Flight Games is happy to announce the Epic Battles Multiplayer Expansion for Star Wars™: X-Wing! Epic Battles introduces a totally new way to play X-Wing, inviting two to eight players to engage in epic multiplayer battles as they command massive fleets in large-scale games that evoke iconic Star Wars scenes.

Featuring eleven cinematic scenarios—from team games to chaotic, eight-player, free-for-all battles—Epic Battles broadens the possibilities of X-Wing, creating an exciting new experience for players of all skill levels. In addition to the scenarios and rules for playing with more than two players, Epic Battles also introduces wings, an exciting new way for players to control multiple ships in formation using only a single maneuver dial. Wings work particularly well when flying in conjunction with huge ships, the largest class of ships available in X-Wing.

No matter if you’re going head-to-head with a single opponent or coordinating your attacks with a teammate, the new game modes you find in Epic Battles create an exciting new X-Wing experience. Read on for more of what to expect in the Epic Battles Multiplayer Expansion!

Renegade Game Studios Announces Paladins of the West Kingdom

July 22, 2019

Paladins of the West Kingdom, available in October, 2019 (pre-order available now) is set at a turbulent time of West Francia’s story, circa 900 AD. Despite recent efforts to develop the city, outlying townships are still under threat from outsiders. Saracens scout the borders, while Vikings plunder wealth and livestock. Even the Byzantines from the east have shown their darker side. As noble men and women, players must gather workers from the city to defend against enemies, build fortifications and spread faith throughout the land. Fortunately you are not alone. In his great wisdom, the King has sent his finest knights to help aid in our efforts. So ready the horses and sharpen the swords. The Paladins are approaching.

The aim of Paladins of the West Kingdom is to be the player with the most victory points (VP) at game’s end. Points are gained by building outposts and fortifications, commissioning monks and confronting outsiders. Each round, players will enlist the help of a specific Paladin and gather workers to carry out tasks. As the game progresses, players will slowly increase their faith, strength and influence. Not only will these affect their final score, but they will also determine the significance of their actions. The game is concluded at the end of the seventh round.

Fantasy Flight Games is happy to announce two Operative Expansions for Star Wars™: Legion:

As T-65 X-wings and TIE/ln fighters engage in frantic ship-to-ship combat, turbolasers from massive warships flash across the darkness of space, pummeling their targets.

Fantasy Flight Games is happy to announce three expansions for Star Wars™: X-Wing:

These expansions put devastating new options for your starfighter squadrons at your fingertips, letting you conduct deadly electronic warfare and unleash barrages of powerful turbolaser or ion cannon fire as you bring the full weight of the largest X-Wing ship class to bear against your opponents. The largest ships available in X-Wing, huge ships can be used during casual games of X-Wing, and they’re also great when used in conjunction with the Epic Battles Multiplayer Expansion.


CMON Announces Teburu Gaming System

July 21, 2019

CMON and Xplored are teaming up to bring players the next evolution in board gaming. Teburu is a gaming console that seamlessly integrates the physical and digital worlds, keeping players focused on the board and its components while the system takes care of game rules, enemies’ behavior, and storytelling events.

Groundbreaking technology senses where figures representing heroes, monsters and other gameplay elements are anywhere on the board. This information is transmitted seamlessly to any compatible tablet or computer running the Gamemaster App – no more hunting around in the rulebook. Make your move and the Gamemaster tells you what happens next.

Players can keep track of their own characters on Companion Apps running on their own smartphones networked to the Gamesmaster App, which is able to throw surprises at players with a malevolent intelligence never before seen in boardgames. What’s behind the door? The Gamemaster knows…

Roll the wireless dice anywhere, and Teburu does all the heavy lifting, taking into consideration player and monster statistics, equipment and other modifiers and displaying the final result instantly. No more math, just shoot zombies (with your dice)!

The first game on Teburu will be Zombicide Evolution – Las Vegas. It’s the game millions of Zombicide players the world over know and love, but evolved – faster, enhanced, and with a great campaign full of meaningful choices that will carry over a series of gaming sessions.

CMON’s CEO, Chern Ann Ng commented, “We are excited to bring new technology and gameplay innovations to tabletop games in the form of the Teburu. We expect this will both excite existing tabletop gamers and draw a whole new audience into tabletop gaming.”

Xplored’s Founder and CEO, Davide Garofalo noted, “CMON immediately understood the groundbreaking potential of our technology applied to board games, allowing us to bring an ambitious product to life. We strongly believe Teburu is the paradigm change this market has been looking for.”

Players will get their first chance to try the Teburu gaming system at Gen Con this August at the CMON booth (#417). Participants will be able to try out this new, fully-integrated style of gaming with demos of Zombicide Evolution – Las Vegas.
