Stronghold Games Announces Space Cadets: Away Missions

January 19th, 2015 by SHG_Stephen

Stronghold Games Announces
Space Cadets: Away Missions

Launching As A Kickstarter Project,
Featuring As Many As 100 Plastic Miniatures,
With Free Worldwide Shipping For Early Adopters

[EDIT:  Link to Kickstarter campaign:  https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/strongholdgames/space-cadets-away-missions/ ]

New Jersey, USA – January 19, 2015

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Stronghold Games is proud to announce Space Cadets: Away Missions, the third standalone game in the Space Cadets franchise of cooperative and team space-themed games.

Space Cadets: Away Missions is a cooperative, scenario-based, tactical action game set in the Golden Age of science fiction, making it a thematic prequel to the first two Space Cadets games. In this game, players take on the roles of adventurous human spacemen (“Rocketeers”) who explore UFOs, acquire alien technology and fight hordes of hostile extraterrestrials.

Each turn, Rocketeers spend action points on activities such as firing atomic rifles, analyzing exotic equipment, or subduing the malicious Brain-in-a-Jar. When the Rocketeers are finished, the Aliens take their turns by following simple movement and combat protocols. Seven types of hostile Aliens threaten the Rocketeers, from the repulsive Mind Leeches to the rampaging titanic Sentinels.

Space Cadets: Away Missions has scenarios linked in a campaign story arc. These “Away Missions” are set at various locations, feature different combinations of Aliens, and have diverse objectives for the Rocketeers to achieve. Hexagonal map tiles are arranged to form the locations, such as flying saucers, rocket ships, and space stations. Cooperation, tactical planning and a bit of luck are essential if the Rocketeers are to overcome the relentless horde of little green men.

In a departure from its previous publications, Stronghold Games will launch a Kickstarter campaign for this game, which is the most ambitious project in its 5+ years in the hobby game industry. By utilizing Kickstarter for this publication, Space Cadets: Away Missions will contain as many as 100 detailed, professionally-sculpted plastic miniatures to represent the heroic Rocketeers and the rampaging Aliens.  Stronghold Games will print this impressive project at Ludofact Germany, the leading printer of hobby games in the world, where the best-selling miniatures board games in the world also have been printed.

As an added bonus, free worldwide shipping will be offered to the Early Adopter Pledge Levels of the Kickstarter campaign for Space Cadets: Away Missions.  The project is scheduled to deliver to Kickstarter backers in August 2015.  The game will be available in retail venues at a date after it ships to all backers.

The Kickstarter for Space Cadets: Away Missions will begin within days of this announcement.

[EDIT:  KS campaign link:  https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/strongholdgames/space-cadets-away-missions/ ]

“We wanted to publish a game in our Space Cadets franchise, which not only has incredible gameplay, but also is beautiful to behold on the table”, said Stephen Buonocore, President of Stronghold Games. “With as many as 100 plastic miniatures, Space Cadets: Away Missions moves us into an entirely new market. To ensure that this market does exist for us, we are employing Kickstarter for this project only. We are using Kickstarter in the same manner as much larger companies than us have done in the past when they reached into new markets.”

 


Stronghold Games Announces Pictomania by Vlaada Chvatil — PREORDERS NOW OPEN!

January 5th, 2015 by SHG_Stephen

Pictomania is designed by Vlaada Chvatil, designer of five of the Top 100 Ranked Games on BGG

New Jersey, USA – January 5, 2015

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Stronghold Games is proud to announce the publication of the second English language edition of Pictomania.  This game was previously published only in a very limited edition in English by Czech Games Edition.  With the Stronghold Games global distribution network, this publication will provide gamers worldwide
with access to this great game.

Pictomania is a drawing game for 3 to 6 players.  In Pictomania, however, it really doesn’t matter if you can draw well at all. Each player will draw a picture of a word given to them and at the same time try to guess the drawings of the other players.  You don’t have time for a masterpiece – just a small doodle will suffice – and then you will have more time to guess.  The player who can doodle just a little bit while making good guesses at the other drawings will be the winner.

Pictomania is designed by the great Vlaada Chvatil, the designer of five of the Top 100 rated games on BoardGameGeek.com.  Games designed by Mr.
Chvatil include Through The Ages™, Mage Knight™, Space Alert™, Galaxy Trucker™, Dungeon Petz™ and Dungeon Lords™.

Stronghold Games has printed Pictomania at Ludofact Germany, the leading printer of hobby games in the world. Pictomania has a firm Street Date of March 18, 2015, which is timed with the GAMA Trade Show in Las Vegas, NV that week.  Stronghold Games will be in attendance at the GAMA Trade Show, and have copies to demonstrate.  Pictomania has an MSRP of $49.95.

As with all of its new game releases, Stronghold Games will offer Pictomania to its North American customers via their industry-leading Preorder Program.  The Stronghold Games Preorder Program offers preorder customers 30% off MSRP, and the guarantee that the games will ship to them before any other customers, including Distributors and Retailers.

Stronghold Games’ preorders for Pictomania begin today, January 5, 2015, coinciding with this announcement. Preorders will begin to ship in mid-February 2015.
