The un-life of a vampire can be rough. You spend a century comfy in your castles until the townsfolk come with torches and pitchforks, driving you from your home. So you roam, looking for a new place to hang our hat. Perhaps this city would work, but you can't just move in and take over at once. That would bring too much suspicion and the gaze of the Inquisition. Instead, you must work slowly and stealthily. Of course, you do have time on your hand. That's what you'll be doing in Masters of the Night, a new cooperative vampire board game that's up on Kickstarter now.
Masters of the Night is a new vampire board game coming to Kickstarter at the start of next month. To make sure you have the 411 about it, they've started posting some previews of the characters. In this instance, we have Mila. Have yourselves a look.
For some people, it's never the wrong time of year for vampires. If you're one of those people, Masters of the Night might just be the game for you. Players take on the role of members of a vampire family that just moved to a new city. They must work together to complete a ritual that will secure their control of the city, all while fighting against sinister agents looking to do them in. Ares Games will be bringing this new game to Kickstarter at the start of next year.
A game can be the best game ever created, but if it can't get into the hands of players, what good is it? That's why distribution is such a big deal. And if you are an English-speaker and you've been wanting to get some of Hexy Studios' games, you'll want to turn an eye towards Ares Games, as they've entered into a distribution partnership.
Having a sale on Black Friday has been a tradition that's been around for quite some time. But not everyone has always participated. But hey, it seems to be doing well for people, and Ares Games wanted to get in on the fun. As such, they're holding their first ever Black Friday sale over in their webshop now. Some items are up to 80% off.
Ares Games has a new Dungeonology board game coming out tomorrow. Players will head around to different civilizations, looking to study their histories. However, groups aren't always that thrilled with outsiders coming in and poking around everywhere. It's a fine balancing act, but if the players want to get the best score, they'll need to make it work.
Psst. Hey... Gen Con is this week. Pass it along.
Ares Games will be there. And they're going to be there big and in style. They have a lot going on, including Tripods & Triplaes, Battlestar Galactica - Starship Battles, WW2 Quartermaster General Second Edition, and much, much more. Have yourselves a look-see.
In many ways, WWII was just WWI - 2nd Edition. So, it seems only fitting that games based on WWII would also have second editions. In this case, it's Quartermaster General WW2. Ares Games and Griggling Games are coming together to bring you an updated version of this advanced tactical game.
Missing out on a Kickstarter is no fun. No exclusives. No special pricing. It's a bummer. Thankfully, there's Late Pledge times for many campaigns. And that's what we've got here. Ares Games has opened up their Late Pledges for Sword & Sorcery: Ancient Chronicles. Don't miss this last chance to get in on all the good stuff.
Long-time readers will know that I love it when a company posts their rulebooks online so you can check them out before buying them. Or, even if you've been a player for a while, you can have a pdf version on your portable device to reference when you don't have the book handy. Well, Ares Games has posted the rulebook for Tripods & Triplanes up online so you can check it out.
Whole new space wars are breaking out on tabletops all over. Folks are heading out to get the Battlestar Galactica - Starship Battles game, now available from Ares Games. Will you choose to defend humanity, or destroy it?
The next game in the legendary Sword & Sorcery line is up on Kickstarter. Ares Games has launched their campaign for Ancient Chronicles. This new stand-alone game for 1-5 players takes players into events that happened before the Immortal Souls game. However, while the game is stand-alone, it's also 100% compatible with other Sword & Sorcery games. So, if you've got a particular hero you love to use or a villain you love to slay, you can port them right on over.
Ares Games is pleased to announce a new game in the Sword & Sorcery line of cooperative fantasy board games. It's called Ancient Chronicles and it's a new "expanshalone." That is to say, it is it's own stand-alone game, but it's also 100% compatible with Immortal Souls. So if you've got that one, you can bring heroes and gear over. Or, if you're new, you can use this as a new jumping-on point for the series.
