Cateva jocuri pe care le am deja pe radar pentru anul viitor.
Nu conteaza ca e de-abia septembrie, listele nu cer bani. ;)


Feudum - Kickstarter in 2016, livrare in 2017.
Blimey! You and your blokes have been banished and stripped of everything but a few shillings and table scraps. Undaunted, you journey to a strange land to reinvent yourself and reclaim your honor. Will you farm the earth, fight as knights or finagle your own feudums?

Feudum (latin for fiefdom) is an economic medieval game of hand and resource management for 2-5 players. With many strategies at their disposal, players optimize 4 actions per turn in attempt to score the most victory points over five epochs.

Each player controls several medieval characters that roam the countryside tending farms, taxing towns and taking outposts in effort to rise in power.

But, that’s only the tip of the behemoth's horn! You will also compete to acquire coveted feudums, which increase your membership status in one of six guilds. But beware! Feudum owners must pay homage to the king through military service, or face the charge of disloyalty.

Once a guild member, you will dutifully play your part in a progressive economic cycle, whereby the farmer ships goods to the merchant who equips the alchemist, who invents black powder, which arms the knight, and so on.

If you run your guilds wisely, maintain control of key locations and adapt best to changing events, you will be victorious. Unless, of course, you starve, get sidetracked by sea serpents or develop an unhealthy interest in fermented grapes. Long live the King!

The Manhattan Project 2: Minutes to Midnight
20 years after the end of The Manhattan Project, the superpowers of the world are embroiled in another vicious arms race. Manufacturing nukes is no longer an obstacle; all nations are now capable of churning them out at a rapid pace. The challenge of this era lies in the development of various delivery systems called the "Nuclear Triad:" strategic bombers, ballistic subs, and land-based ballistic missiles.

Each player represents one of the superpowers in the arms race. At staged intervals, scoring is conducted in one of 4 categories:

- Strategic Bombers
- Ballistic Submarines
- ICBMs
- Short-range missiles deployed to third world nations

In addition to earning points for deploying nukes during the scoring rounds, players can also earn defensive bonuses for mitigating the risks imposed against them.

The game ends after all of the scoring events have been completed. The player with the most points is the winner.

To help along the way, you will recruit 4 different kinds of workers:

- Laborers, which operate your buildings
- Spies, which operate your opponents' buildings for your gain
- Politicians, which produce tax revenue and gain control over third world nations
- Generals, which deploy your bombers, subs, and overseas missiles

You will also construct and operate 6 different kinds of buildings:

- Factories, which produce submarines and aircraft
- Research Facilities, which allow you to improve your position in 5 different technology tracks
- Reactors, which produce nukes
- Silos, which are armed with ICBMs
- Test Sites, which allow you to detonate nukes in your own territory for points
- ABM Launchers, which earn defensive bonuses against various threats

Minutes to Midnight is a standalone game. It is part of The Manhattan Project line from Minion Games.

Steam Ship Company - amanat pentru a doua oara...
Players invest in five historical Steam Ship Companies, which transport freight, passengers and mail around the world of the late 19th century. New type of ships are developed which carry more cargo, but also can be sold for higher prices.
Players are not only investors of the companies, but also industrialists running their own coal bunkers, shipyards, storehouses, and passenger offices. They make a lot of money by selling coal and steamships to the companies of their choice. Of course they want "their" company to flourish and to pay out dividends. But beware, the control of a company may be taken over by another investor...
The game starts with clippers and finishes with fast liners from the 20th century.

Haven - noul joc de la Red Raven
The mystical forest has been a home and haven to beasts, spirits, and forgotten gods for thousands of years. While the forest spirits sleep, in a nearby valley a human village has grown into a city, a monster of iron and furnaces, hungry for the resources of the forest. Can the forest creatures rouse the slumbering forest spirits to defend their ancient land from the ravenous city?

In Haven, you and a friend battle for control of a mystical forest. One of you controls the city in an effort to master the forest using metal and machines. The other plays as the forest creatures who attempt to rouse the sleeping forest spirits to defend their home. You take turns sending creatures to six regions on a beautiful forest board, carefully moving them in an attempt to harvest or defend the forest while exploring these regions.

On their journeys, your creatures collect potent lore which is used either to activate machines or to awaken slumbering forest spirits, giving players access to powerful special actions. You may also send three creatures to a region to build a shrine or stronghold, granting you bonus lore.

As you gain control of the forest, you advance a victory marker along a track toward your side. Build enough of a lead, and you immediately win! If the battle continues until the third season, the player with the advantage either masters the forest or defends it from harm, and wins the game.

Brasil (acum vreo 2-3 ani se numea Vila Rica) - initial planificat pentru Essen 2016.
Brasil is a game about gold-mining in 18th-century Brazil when Bandeirantes (explorers) started to travel through the country and discovered a new region of "black gold" along the way. The "sugar rush" was coming to an end in the northeast part of the country and near the city-to-be of Vila Rica, a whole new region of precious metal was suddenly one of the most important suppliers of the old world. Hundreds of thousands of men came from everywhere once word spread, and a number of small but relevant locations started to grow near Vila Rica.

Most of the wealth in Europe had its origins in the colonies of that time. Brazil, for example, was the number one provider of gold, and Portugal lived a prosperous long time from it. Some people maintain that the industrial revolution was in part financed by the metal that came from Brazil.

The game of Brasil is played with cards. More than a simple game about mining, it requires that players combine actions to develop the region by building essential infrastructures like houses, stores, farms, churches and roads. Players build their path to wealth by keeping in mind the changing characteristics of the region, the moves and needs of other players, and the common good of the vibrant and prosperous Vila Rica.

Charterstone - Jamey Stegmaier does Legacy...
The prosperous Kingdom of Greengully, ruled for centuries by the Forever King, has issued a decree to its citizens to colonize the vast lands beyond its borders. The Forever King has selected 6 citizens of Greengully to start a new village far from the Eternal City, each of whom has a unique set of skills they use to build their charter.

In Charterstone, a competitive legacy game, you construct buildings and populate a shared village. Building stickers are permanently added to the game board and become action spaces for any player to use. Thus, you start off with simple choices and few workers, but soon you have a bustling village with dozens of possible actions.

Your journey through Charterstone’s many secrets will last 20 games, but it doesn’t end there. Your completed village will be a fully-functional worker-placement game with plenty of variability.

Sagrada - acum pe Kickstarter, livrare in 2017
Draft dice & use the tools-of-the-trade to carefully construct your stained glass window masterpiece.

Each player will build a stained glass window by building up a grid of dice on their player board. Each board has some restrictions on which color or shade (value) of die can be placed there. Dice of the same shade or color may never be placed next to each other.

Dice are drafted in player order, with the start player rotating each round, snaking back around after the last player drafts 2 dice.

Special tools can be used to help you break the rules by spending skill tokens -- however, once a tool is used, it then requires more skill tokens for the next player to use them.

Scoring is variable per game based on achieving various patterns and varieties of placement... as well as bonus points for dark shades of a particular hidden goal color.

The highest scoring window artisan is the winner!

Dragon Keepers - Vital Lacerda face un joc pentru familie.
The game is battle between an evil hunter who wants to shoot the dragons and its keepers.

In this fantasy Dragon universe, there are the hunter and the keepers.
Each player is the Chief of a tribe of Dragon keepers defending the dragons from attacks by the Evil Hunter

The hunter wants to see those cute dragons dead, but they need to pass the dragon keepers.
The keepers belong to different tribes but together they have the common goal of protecting the Dragons. The keepers use magic in their duels with the Evil hunters.

Dragon Keepers was designed along with my youngest daughter, Catarina. She is the one who knows a lot about Dragons and I could have never been able to do this design without her. Dragon Keepers brings two different versions in the box. The first versions are directed to 4+ children and its a very easy game that takes about 5 to 10 min.

Small kids version: Plays from 2 to 6 players - 5 to 10 min.
The hunter rolls dice to hit the dragons and the players choose what which, from the attached dragons they want to defend. The game ends when one player manages to defend heroically 4 different dragons or if one dragon gets 3 hits.the winner is the player with more successful defenses.

Advanced version: Plays from 2 to 4 players - 10 min per player.
This is a bigger version of the game with a semi co-op card/dice game mechanics at its core.
The game is played in rounds until a tribe manages to hold the hunters attack through a deck of cards that are drawn every round.

Players have 4 different actions to choose: Defend, Cure, Train and Attack. Those actions are limited and they need to cooperate and organized as a group to manage to stop the hunters attacks during the game.
The game ends if a dragon is killed, and everyone loses.
Or if players manage to run trough all the deck. In this last case the winner will be the player with the most points.

Iberian Rails - Kickstarter in noiembrie, livrare in 2017.
Iberian Rails is a share-holding train game wherein players employ services of characters, some more reputable than others.

Each round, the players select their characters using an original character-row mechanism, and then the railway companies take their turns. The player with the most share/s in a railway company (the CEO) controls said company, directing the company to do one of the following on its turn: build track/s; openly sell a share, and then trigger its dividend payout; and secretly sell a share, and then trigger its dividend payout.

Each of the railway companies has a limited number of shares (ranging from 3 to 6), limiting its potential number of dividend payouts during the game. If a company prematurely triggers a dividend payout before exhausting its coffer to maximize city connections, then said company and its shareholders get paid less but sooner. This compromises the long term growth of the company, but may assist an investor in having enough cash in hand to invest in another company. However, things aren’t so simple; the characters may have something to say about these well-defined plans!

The six railway companies have different strengths and weaknesses. Some start next to many cities. Some start next to tourist cities. Invest in a company with fewer shares and get return on one’s investment faster. However, companies with more shares generally grow for longer. But the Engineer, the Mafia, the Bureaucrat, the Inspector, the Banker, the Ghost, the Construction Mech, the Hotelier, and the Venture Capitalist might make this generality less exact. By the way, the CEO of Ride with Cervantes selects his character first in the first round of the game.

The game is set in Spain. The map has 42 cities, fourteen of which are tourist cities.

At the end of the game, a double dividend is paid out for all the shares, and the investor with the most money wins.

Inlocuitorul lui Key Market - campanie pe Kickstarter si release la finalul lui 2017. Finally!
Keyper is a game with high player interaction for two to four players played over four rounds. Each round represents a season: spring, summer, autumn and finally winter.
Each player starts the game with their own village board, a mini keyp board, 12 village tiles, a keyper (waving meeple) in their player colour and a team of eight multi-coloured keyples, including two white keyples. Each differently coloured keyple is a specialist in one activity; the brown keyper is a woodsman, the black keyple is a miner, the orange keyple a clay worker, etc. The white keyples are generalists who can represent any other colour.

Keyper is a worker placement game. (Keyper is the eighth new title in the medieval Key series of games, with Keydom, the second in the series being ‘widely recognized as the first of the worker placement genre of games’.) What makes Keyper special is that when one player places a keyple on a country board, another player can join them with a matching coloured keyple on the first player’s turn, to the benefit of both players. In this way some players are likely to have played all their keyples before others. All keyples have the potential to work twice. If a player had played all of their keyples, but another player still has some, then on their turn that player a player with no remaining keyples can ‘lay down’ a keyple(s) on the country board they have claimed or in their village board, to secure additional resources or actions. It can therefore be doubly beneficial to co-operate with your fellow players, although Keyper is not a co-operative game in the usual sense of the term.

The country boards are also noteworthy in that they can be manipulated and folded at the beginning of summer, autumn and winter to show one of four different permutations of fields for that season. A player will chose the one to suit their strategy, often hoping that another player will complement their choice. Certain fields on the country boards are only available in certain seasons. For example: raw materials can only be upgraded to finished goods in spring and summer after which you can only convert using tiles in your own village. Gem mining only occurs in autumn and winter.

A player’s strategy is likely to be influenced by which (seeded) spring country tiles that they acquire and by the particular coloured keyples they have available in the later seasons. Different combinations will encourage a player develop their farm and/or village, help with their shipping or mining activities and prepare for the seasonal fairs. Players will constantly need to evaluate whether or not to join other plyers, when to claim a country board, whether to play on their own or another player’s country board, when to use their own village and whether to create a large or small team of keyples for the following season. Players are fully engaged throughout. The winner is the player to gain the most points, usually through pursuing at least a couple of the different strategies.

Contents include: 48 country tiles, 48 village tiles, 26 fair tiles, 6 boat tiles. 4 ‘flexible’ country boards, 4 village boards (which are comprised of a farm, village, fair ground, storage area, dock and keyp) and 4 mini keyp boards. There are 4 waving wooden called ‘keypers’. 32 wooden ‘keyples’. 96 wooden raw material and finished goods counters. 8 wooden score marker cylinders. 96 wooden animeeples of eight different types, 20 wooden wheat counters, 64 gems and a black cloth bag.

As well as the theme and mechanics, Keyper has similar traits to the earlier key games: game actions are positive and constructive, not destructive; player interaction is through the game mechanisms not direct and, like Keyflower, the previous game in the series, there is a lot of player interaction.

There is a special English language Kickstarter edition with ‘character’ keyples and keypers. The game will be released in autumn 2017.
