Indian Summer – PREORDER

Dungeon Rush – PREORDER

In Dungeon Rush, players are adventurers rushing through a perilous dungeon to root out evil, earning gold, and improving their abilities to level up along the way.

Each player has two heroes, one for their right hand and one for their left hand. All players simultaneously reveal 2 dungeon cards each and attack the creatures with their heroes (by quickly placing their hands on the cards to fight them). If the hero defeats the creature, they claim the card as loot and/or equipment that increases the abilities of their heroes. Equipment cards are placed partly under your hero card, with the ability symbol sticking out. In this way, the four different types of abilities — Melee, Ranged, Magic, and Stealth — are built up in one direction each, out from under your hero, which levels up your hero as you fight more difficult enemies in the depths of the dungeon.

After three levels of the dungeon (with three rounds of monsters in each level) they face the Dungeon Lord and the Dragon.

Dungeon Rush is a speed game where quick thinking and observation is just as important as quick hands!

Indian Summer – PREORDER

Before winter makes its appearance, a particularly warm fall bathes the forest in a golden shimmer. During the Indian Summer, New England blossoms one last time. Treetops are ablaze with countless colors — a living rainbow, from green to orange to red. Slowly the first leaves are starting to fall. Meanwhile, our steps and the diligent squirrels rustle the colorful foliage.

On our walks through the woods, we discover all kinds of little treasures; we collect berries, nuts, mushrooms and feathers. We pause for a moment to watch the shy inhabitants of the forest before we set off towards home once again. There, a good book and a hot tea are already awaiting.

The heart of Indian Summer are puzzle tiles with holes that are placed on individual forest boards to cover up treasures. When players get their hands on these, they gain more options and an edge over their opponents. All that counts in the end is to be the first to cover your forest floor completely with leaves.

Indian Summer is the second part of Uwe Rosenberg’s puzzle trilogy following 2016′s smash hit game, Cottage Garden. This game is further geared towards more experienced players.

Noria – PREORDER

A new era is looming on the horizon. The future of Noria is right in front of you, and you must guide your flourishing trading empire into prosperity. Discover flying islands, buy ships, and build factories. Invest in prestigious projects, and secure their success by passing on secret knowledge to politicians. For even above the clouds, there is still room for improvement…

Noria is the debut title from Sophia Wagner, winner of the Spiel des Jahres fellowship in 2015. This talented, young female designer has created an entirely new Steampunk/Sci-Fi universe specifically for this game, and artists Michael Menzel and Klemens Franz have managed to bring her vision to life.

At the center of the game is an innovative mechanism called “Wheel Building“. Each player has an action wheel consisting of three rings, with slots for a number of different action discs. Over the course of the game, players try to obtain new discs and manipulate the rings of the wheel to optimize their action selection. Additionally, to ensure their investments bear fruit, they also need to bribe politicians with knowledge.

A full “How to Play” video will be posted here soon! <Link will be here>

The Bottle Imp – PREORDER

The Bottle Imp is a thematic trick-taking card game based on the short story by Robert Louis Stevenson, where the goal is to gain the most points over a series of hands.

Cards are numbered 1-37 and are found in three colors: red, blue, and yellow. There is one neutral card, the 19, that sets the “price of the bottle.” As in most trick taking games, players must follow suit if possible with high card taking the trick (regardless of suit). The unique feature about this game however is how trump is determined. Any card of value lower than the current price of the bottle (starting with 19) is considered trump, and will win the trick. If multiple cards are less than the current bottle price, the card valued closest to the current price (so highest card below the bottle) takes the trick and the Bottle, changing the bottle price to the number on the card used to win the trick.

Thus the “price of the bottle” will decrease with each trump card played, and the bottle is increasingly harder to win/purchase (or get rid of, as you will see!). Ownership of the bottle will pass from player to player and the number of possible trump cards will decrease both as a factor of cards being played and cards being skipped as the bottle price descends. One player will be stuck with the bottle at the end of a hand (when players have played all the cards in their hands).

Cards have point values from 1-6 (not directly based on the card’s numerical value).  At the end of the hand, players will score points for the cards of tricks they’ve won, except the player who holds the bottle, who instead scores negative points for all the cards played to the bottle at the beginning, and scores nothing for the cards they won during the hand. Play continues until the point goal is reached.

This is a reprint of the classic The Bottle Imp, first published in 1995, and reprinted later by Z-Man Games. In the new Stronghold Games edition, we have brought back the beautiful wooden bottle that players of the original edition loved!

The Pursuit Of Happiness: Community – PREORDER

They say no man is an island. We live within communities where we get to interact with other people, engage in various activities, have new experiences and be part of something bigger. The people around us shape who we are and in turn, we shape their lives through our behavior. The actions we take, allow us to become more popular, or slide us into obscurity. How will those around us affect us in The Pursuit Of Happiness: Community?

The Pursuit of Happiness: Community is the first expansion for the thematic eurogame, The Pursuit Of Happiness. It introduces the concept of the local community. A new type of card, Community cards, allows you to engage in various community events and choose their outcome, with a new board included on which to place the new cards and keep track of your Popularity score. More Projects, Items, Activities, Jobs, Partners, Life Goals and Child Traits are also included to enhance your game experience.

The Pursuit of Happiness: Community also includes materials for a 5th player to join your games!
