Arbeitstitel: TudorStatus: Starting presumably in the first weeks of May
Verlag: Corax GamesBemerkung:
Being an English Lord in the early 16th century you try to get into the ranks on the court of Henry VIII Tudor.

To do so you use your priviledges and the help of your courtiers. Gather titles and gain more privilidges with them. use them wisely to collect prestige and wealth in all statecrafts.

Tudors is a clever worker placement game that comes with a unique gameplay. In their turn, all players play their Lord to play two out of 6 possible actions. But by doing so, they also activate their courtiers and the ones of the other players in the same area so these get actions, too. Plan ahead to make the most out of your turns and get the most actions from the other players turns, too.

Use your priviledges (represented by the rings on your fingers) wisely and protect them from the intrigues of other players, who will not hesitate to kill your courtiers if they have a chance to, and steal your priviledge for their favour.

Tudor has variable goals and also variable game mechanics. For every game you choose these randomly so each game will be different and you need to adapt your strategies.

Rice Dice - Spirits of the Rice Paddy Dice Game

Arbeitstitel: Rice Dice - Spirits of the Rice Paddy Dice GameStatus: Concrete preliminary talks
Verlag: APE GamesBemerkung:
Rice Dice is a streamlined dice game version of Spirits of the Rice Paddy. Players familiar with that game will feel at home with Rice Dice. New players will find Rice Dice to be a great introduction to its big brother.

Roll the custom dice and choose one action based on the results. Add rice paddy cards to your field using the Card action. Run water through your paddies or assign laborers to plant and harvest!

Arbeitstitel: BronzeStatus: final talks
Verlag: Hobby WorldBemerkung:
Lead your people to prosperity in the inhospitable world of the Bronze age, where mankind has to lay the foundation for a bright future.

The family strategy game Bronze demands that players carefully plan their actions because the opponents are not idle, and the lands are not enough for all. Invent the wheel, tame animals, create your first clay pot, master the basics of construction, and lay the foundations of statehood. Most importantly, discover new lands that have never seen a man before.

The gaming area in Bronze is divided into seven landscapes: mountains, forests, plains, savannahs, jungles, deserts, and coasts. Using technology cards, players found settlements, trying to occupy the maximum territories of a particular landscape. The most brutal struggle is around the trading routes, which brings not only money in the world of years BC, but also news from the neighbors. The more settlements in a landscape, the richer the trade caravan that will go to your people. All of that brings victory points that will determine the outcome of the race.

The red Claw (Working Title)

Arbeitstitel: The red Claw (Working Title)Status: appr. between March and May
Verlag: Corax GamesBemerkung:
some time ago we already announced Fish`n`Ships designed by Antoine Noblet. This had to be cancelled because of legal issues with the name.

We took this circumstance as a purpose to fully rethink the games theme and mechanics. Now it can be played with up to 4 players and mechanically we adjusted it to fit to its new theme:

It is inspired by a real case that happened in 1979. At this time GDR Stasi Agent Werner Stiller escaped in a spectacular way through Berlin Wall to FRG. In his luggage were top secret papers: A whole list of all GDR Stasi Agents in West Germany. Some of these had been alerted by the escape of Werner Stiller. To avoid beeing captured they now had to flee FRG asap, too...

We will not adopt the theme 1:1. Players will not be Stasi Agents. But still they will be playing agents that must flee from the local authorities. "The red Claw" will become a clever and tense damage avoidance game, where every agent is only for himself...

Das gut geölte Design konzentriert sich auf die beiden wichtigsten Aspekte: eine Eisenbahnlinie bauen und Aktien kaufen.

Doch an die armen Tiere kannst du nicht denken. Auch für das Schiff im Eis kannst du keine Gedanken entbehren. In deinem Kopf gibt es nur einen Gedanken. Die Dunkelheit zieht herauf und du und der einzige andere deiner Kameraden, der noch am Leben ist, stehen über der Entdeckung, die ihr gerade gemacht habt.

In deinem Kopf dreht sich alles um diesen einen Gedanken, diese eine Frage, die alles andere verdrängt. Während du auf die seltsame Form zu deinen Füßen herabblickst, wird diese Frage immer lauter. Als deine Augen die glitschige Haut betrachten, bekommst du sie einfach nicht mehr aus deinem Kopf: Warum?

"Warum?", fragst du dich und schreckst auch nicht mehr zurück, als dein Blick über die Fülle aus Tentakeln wandert. "Warum? Warum habe ich das getan?"

"Warum bin ich zurückgekehrt zu den Bergen des Wahnsinns?"

Shadows in Kyoto

Arbeitstitel: Shadows in KyotoStatus: In Negotiations
Verlag: Emperor S4Bemerkung:
In 1867, the last feudal Japanese military government, Edo bakufu,
returned the governing power back to Emperor Meiji; however,
Oniwaban, a group of undercover spies, was still being employed by the
military government, secretly protecting the Shogun and collecting valuable
intelligence. They disguised their appearances, and formed their headquarters
near the famous street in Kyoto, Hanamikoji. In 1878, with the help of several
skilled female agents, Oniwaban assassinated the secretary of state at the time,
posing a serious threat to the Meiji government.

Frustrated by the existence of Oniwaban, Meiji government fought back by
creating an intelligence agency of their own. Combining government funding
with the advanced technology of the Western Industrial Revolution such as
electrical stun weapons, missile defense systems and covert wireless listening
devices turned the tide of the game heavily crippling the Oniwaban.

The fight lasted for several decades until the economic depression Japan
suffered after World War I in 1927. Instability grew and Oniwaban was more
active than ever. After months of secret investigation, the key file responsible
for all the advanced technology was finally uncovered. At the same time, the
location of Oniwaban’s headquarters was also discovered by the government.
Each side having learned of the intelligence possessed by the other has
brought the conflict to a conclusion, but who will win? Only you can decide…

As the commander of Oniwaban or Meiji government, players must order
their agents to investigate Hanamikoji, secretly gathering key intelligence
from the opponent while protecting their own agents who possess such
critical intelligence.

Xia: Legends of a Drift System

Arbeitstitel: Xia: Legends of a Drift System Status: impossible due to calculation :(
Verlag: Far Off GamesBemerkung:
Xia is a 3-4 player sandbox style competitive space adventure. Each player starts as a lowly but hopeful captain of a small starship.

Players fly their ships about the system, completing a variety of missions, exploring new sectors and battling other ships. Navigating hazardous environments, players choose to mine, salvage, or trade valuable cargo. Captains vie with each other for Titles, riches, and most importantly Fame.

The most adaptive, risk taking, and creative players will excel. One captain will rise above the others, surpassing mortality by becoming Legend!

The real fun of Xia is that each game will be different. There is no set direction of play, players may choose to be peaceful traders, fierce pirates, workers, miners, opportunists, etc. The game board is randomly laid out and explored each time you play. Players might choose not to explore at all, creating a tiny arena for swift and deadly combat, or explore all 19 sectors and have a large play-scape to exploit. It's up to you!

Arbeitstitel: HanamikojiStatus: Publisher cancelled
Verlag: Emperor S4 GamesBemerkung:
Welcome to the most well-known geisha street in the old capital, Hanamikoji. Geisha — the graceful women elegantly mastering in art, music, dance, and a variety of artistic performances after years of training — are greatly respected and adored. Geisha may be translated to "artist" and they dance, sing and entertain everyone.

In Hanamikoji, two players compete to earn the favors of the seven geisha masters by collecting the performance items with which they excel. With careful speculation and sometimes a few bold moves, you may earn the essential items by giving away the less critical ones. Can you outsmart your opponent and win the most favors of the geisha?

Hanamikoji was already sold out on the first day of SPIEL16 in Essen. The cards are illustrated in a great way, which evokes the charm of the far eastern setting. We are in negotiations with Emperor S4 to localize the game with a translationkit.
