Renegade Game Studios Announces Deluxe Edition of Arboretum

July 29, 2018

Coming in November from Renegade Games Studio is the Arboretum Deluxe Edition!

Nowhere is nature’s beauty quite so evident as in the resplendent colors of an arboretum. In Arboretum, you create carefully planned paths for your visitors to walk as they take in the colorful explosion of buds and leaves. The cheerful cherry blossom, the fragrant dogwood, the mighty oak – all have a place in this peaceful haven. But the tranquil setting belies the game’s competitive heart. You must choose which cards to plant in your arboretum and which to keep in hand, as only the most expert curator will win the renown of nature enthusiasts everywhere.

Sitting Ducks Deluxe up on Kickstarter

April 14th, 2015

Playroom Entertainment has a Kickstarter campaign up and running for Sitting Ducks Deluxe, a new edition of their popular card game.

In Sitting Ducks, each player gets their own group of ducks. Those ducks are shuffled together and form the Duck Deck, which then become the Duck line.

The Duck line is always in flux – when a Duck is removed; the other ducks move forward to fill the gap. Certain cards can move the line forward, backwards or rearrange ducks in the line in your favor or your opponents. With the right cards, players may also move and manipulate targets to try to keep their own Ducks safe.

Eventually, you’ll get caught snoozing and you will surely lose some of your ducks.

Lose all of your ducks, and you can no longer win the game. But, one of the most fun aspects of Sitting Ducks is when all of your ducks have been eliminated from the game. Although you won’t win, you’ll still get a chance to exact revenge on the opponents who took you out and play Action Cards for the rest of the game! The last player to have a duck in the water is the winner!

Pixel Tactics Deluxe on Kickstarter

December 21st, 2014

Level 99 Games is running a Kickstarter campaign for their new Pixel Tactics Deluxe box set.

Pixel Tactics is a 2-player card game that captures the tactical strategy of games like Final Fantasy Tactics, Disgaea, Soul Nomad, or Fire Emblem in card game format. Battles take about 30 minutes to play, and each game is vastly different, due to the powerful influence of Leaders over gameplay!

? In this project, we want to print a big starter box for Pixel Tactics, called Pixel Tactics Deluxe! This large box contains everything for two players to play the game: cards, rules, punch tokens, and extra storage space for all the other Pixel Tactics games in print (sleeved or unsleeved)! Designed for both new players and veterans alike, Pixel Tactics Deluxe is a complete game on its own, and also combines with other Pixel Tactics games to form a larger set, with which you can play many of the over 7 new play modes introduced in the game!

If you already have other Pixel Tactics Games, there’s plenty to look forward to: All 25 heroes in Pixel Tactics Deluxe are completely new!

Power Grid Deluxe (10th Anniversary) is coming in October

September 13th, 2014

Power Grid Deluxe is based on the highly successful game “Power Grid” from Rio Grande Games. However, it is not simply the same game with bigger, better and more beautiful components, but rather a version made especially for the 10th anniversary.

Everything is bigger: the double-sided game board now offers all of North America and all of Europe, rather than just the USA and Germany. The customized wooden parts offer actual generators for the players and different shapes for the resources, among them natural gas instead of garbage. All the power plants have been changed and we added new resource refill cards to make refilling the resource table easier.

The game is still Power Grid, with all the exciting auctions, the nerve-racking resource speculations, complex city networks and the tight competition among the players – all the way to the nail-biting end, as several players vie for the win. This is a box filled with good and proven parts in updated, new shapes.

Players: 2 – 6 Age: 13 + Game Length: >90 minutes
