CoolMiniOrNot has posted up a teaser trailer of a new board game they’re working on called Dogs of War.
I’ve played this one. I think it’s awesome and can’t wait for it to come out.

From the preview:

Conceived by renowned game designer Paolo Mori, Dogs of War is an elegant game set in a steampunk-influenced renaissance universe. Noble houses engage each other in a series of fierce battles, and it is up to the players and the Dogs of War they control to deploy their private armies in support of whatever house they wish to favor.

Clockwork knights and imposing war machines shift the tides of war as they enter the battlefields, but the interest of their Dog of War captains actually lie in the rewards offered by each noble house to its supporters.

Players will want to gain influence with the noble houses and make sure those houses are victorious in battle so that their influence is more valuable at the end of the game. Thus the Dogs of War flock to support a house on the rise and are all too quick to betray their previous patrons if things go awry. There are several pathways to victory, from crushing your opponents in battle to managing to gain influence with the right houses, or simply reaping the best battle rewards offered by them.

I was born at a very young age. I plan on living forever. So far, so good.
  • So the game looks interesting and intriguing. Cooperation as well as backstabbing. Color me interested when this is available.

    Kickstarter anyone?
