July-August preorders closed… but what is ahead for SEPTEMBER – OCTOBER Preorders?! Hmmm…

August 26th, 2012 by SHG_Stephen

Friends of The Stronghold,

Our July-August preorder period is now over.  Preorders for the following 5 great games are now closed:

  1. Milestones
  2. Little Devils
  3. Crazy Creatures of Dr. Gloom
  4. Revolver: Ambush on Gunshot Trail (expansion 1.1)
  5. Revolver: Hunt the Man Down (expansion 1.2)

Having 5 games on preorder at the same time was unprecedented!  Thank you to all those that preordered.

MILESTONES will be shipping to you very soon, likely during the week of August 27!  Watch your doorstep!

The other 4 titles have been delayed slightly, coming together in the same container, due to the vagarities of ocean shipping.  We expect these to be delivered to our warehouse within 2 weeks, and they will then go out to our preorder customers immediately.  We expect this shipping to happen the week of September 10 (if the gods of ocean container freight shipping view us favorably)…

For those who preordered Milestones AND one or more of these 4 other titles, rest assured… We will ship Milestones to you per the above, and then ship all the other games when they arrive. We will absorb all extra costs of doing this additional shipment to you, have no fear!

It is most important that we fulfill our promise to our preorder customers that you get your games before anyone else at these preorder prices, and that’s before Distributors, Retailers, or any other customer!

Now… what to expect for the SEPTEMBER – OCTOBER Preorders… hmmmm….

Let’s see…

Maybe something having to do with OIL…

And maybe something having to do with the politics of NEGOTIATION…

Stay tuned for many great things from Stronghold Games!

Fantasy Flight Games and Stronghold Games Announce Resolution to the “Merchant of Venus” Board Game Publishing

June 27th, 2012 by SHG_Stephen

Wednesday, June 27, 2012

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

FANTASY FLIGHT GAMES AND STRONGHOLD GAMES ANNOUNCE RESOLUTION TO THE “MERCHANT OF VENUS” BOARD GAME PUBLISHING

Fantasy Flight Games (FFG) and Stronghold Games (SG) are pleased to have reached a favorable resolution regarding the publishing of a new edition of the classic “Merchant of Venus” board game.

In the Fall of 2011, both SG and FFG announced separate plans to re-publish the classic “Merchant of Venus” board game. Today, FFG and SG jointly announce that FFG will proceed to publish its new edition of “Merchant of Venus,” while SG’s version of the game will be cancelled. SG will act as a consultant on FFG’s version of the game, bringing some of SG’s creative vision to the final release.

“This was a difficult and confusing situation,” said Christian T. Petersen, CEO of Fantasy Flight Games. “All parties involved clearly had the best intentions in mind for the game, and none sought to cause damage to the other company. After a period of discussion and discovery, I’m thrilled that all parties now have clarity on the situation. I want to express my gratitude to WOTC for their assistance in this matter, and especially to Stephen Buonocore, the President of Stronghold Games, who has been both professional and practical in untangling this issue.”

“While this was an unfortunate situation for all parties, everyone is a winner in the end,” said Stephen M. Buonocore, President of Stronghold Games.  “Fantasy Flight Games and Stronghold Games have forged a great bond that will last long after this event.  In the face of crisis, Christian Petersen was a true leader who worked tirelessly to resolve the matter, and I am very thankful to him for that. The WOTC team was also instrumental in getting this done smoothly, and they too should be lauded.  And above all, gamers worldwide are the biggest winners, since they will have this great game back in print, published by a great company, Fantasy Flight Games.”

FFG is planning to release its new version of “Merchant of Venus” in Fall 2012. The new edition will feature both the classic game design by Richard Hamblen, as well as an updated game inspired by the original, designed by FFG’s Rob Kouba. Stronghold Games is in discussion with Richard Hamblen with regard to other game designs, both old and new ones, which they hope to publish in 2013.
