“Confusion” wins MTV-Geek’s GAME OF THE YEAR!

Tuesday, January 10th, 2012

The accolades keep pouring in for CONFUSION!

Coming on the heals of its win of “Games Magazine’s 2012 Best Abstract Strategy Game of the Year“…

“Confusion: Espionage and Deception in the Cold War” has been awarded this very high honor…

MTV-Geek’s 2011 “Game of the Year”!

Stronghold Games is very proud to bring you this great game, one which was very nearl lost to the sands of gaming time. Fortunately, we were able to locate and deliver this clever Robert Abbott design despite the number of years that had passed without worldwide publication.

Confusion combines unique design elements, great game play, and of course fantastic components into complete gaming experience.  Enjoy the mechanics of deduction, area control, bluffing, and the mechanic of “espionage” itself… as you never really know if your Spy is working for you, or he is a Double Agent working for your enemy!
