What a Weekend!

Last weekend I was fortunate enough to be asked to go to Fruesbrug in Germany and run some demonstrations of Lords of War as well as hosting the first ever Lords of War German Masters.

The location was quite simply spectacular and Heidelberger made us feel extremely welcome.

The tournament was great fun to organize and the players helped us with the language barrier. I am sure I got a lot of names wrong but their enthusiasm for the game was marvelous. Here are a few pictures of the event along with the final scores...

The final scores were as follows ...

20th  48 points Domonique 
19th  59 points Julian
18th  65 points Bjorn
17th  67 points Phillip

New Pandemic Release

Pandemic Contagion
Releasing Q3 2014

You are the disease. There is no cure.

A new, non-cooperative game in the Pandemic line! Become one of the diseases in this new game that reverses the roles and where you must now try to annihilate the human race. After many years of trying to defeat the diseases that threaten mankind’s existence, the tables have been turned. You are now the disease and guess what?

There is no cure.

In Pandemic: Contagion, you are competing against other diseases to see who can eliminate humanity. With no cure to be had, the one of you that wipes out all human civilization will come out on top as the most deadly disease ever known to man, may he rest in peace.

Similar to Pandemic, Contagion includes a deck of contagion cards, city cards, event cards, player disease card and disease cubes. On a turn you take two of three possible actions and when the number of diseases equals the city’s population number, the city is wiped out. Introduced is the mid-game scoring and once the event deck runs out or only two city cards remain in play, the game ends, with players conducting a final scoring round to see which virus is victorious.

For too long has the human race assaulted diseases. For too long has mankind found cures and other means to eradicate them from the planet. Now, the diseases are fighting back and humanity doesn’t stand a chance! Will you be the disease that exterminates humanity?
