Blackwater Gulch

Time is running out! Our campaign has less than 48 hours left! Won’t you help us out? While we do expect to be able to finish the production on our first few beasts, a successful campaign will ensure that we can keep the new stuff coming, along with adding a lot of great new art to our updated rulebook and a lot more! We also expect to be able to fulfill everything by the end of December, rather than April which was a longer date that we set in case we unlocked a lot of stretch goals.

You may pledge to receive any of our new miniatures, or our original gangs, and we are offering free bonus miniatures to any pledge $50 or higher!

Check out our campaign now and join in before it’s too late! The campaign ends on Sunday, September 6 at 10 PM EST! :)

The preorder campaign of Expo 1906 will start on Tuesday

Expo 1906

Expo 1906 is a mind-boggling game of inventions and technological advancement in which strategy and puzzle solving combine together to give a truly intense, rich and deep game experience. A game lasts 90 minutes and can be played from one to four people.

Players will win by totaling more prestige points at the end of the game than their opponents. Points are awarded for completing Projects which represent historical inventions of the period. To complete a Project, a player must purchase Resources and place them in a proper combinations together with a Project in his Laboratory. This is a challenging task as Projects come in many different shapes and must fit together with their resources in an already tight space. Soon the available room in the Laboratory will reduce and players will face the puzzle solving aspect of the game.

Strategy plays an important role too: to speed up the completion of a Project players can acquire Technologies, which can either reduce the number of Resources required top complete a Project or enhance the type of actions at their disposal. This will require careful management of the available space in their Laboratory too. Also, by registering ideas at the Patents’Office players can become leader in the development of specific Resources and accumulate more prestige points when completing Projects. Setting priorities between all these actions will become critical as players rush to prepare in time for the upcoming World Exposition.
