From their website:

Rex, a board game of negotiation, betrayal, and warfare for three to six players, will begin bombarding tabletops this quarter. Set 3,000 years before the events of Twilight Imperium, Rex tells the tale of the war-ravaged Mecatol City following a surprise attack by ambitious and treacherous Sol forces.

Finger and Toe Releases Eski Koy, 28mm Card Stock Neolithic Village

Finger and Toe announces the release of the 28mm card stock Early Neolithic Ceremonial Center and Village, Eski Koy:



From their website:

Eski Koy comes with three different circular, mud brick huts, pillars and wall segments to build a temple precinct, and statues of the Great Mother and Great Father. Based on real early Neolithic sites, Eski Koy doesn’t have to be limited to the Stone Age. Conquistadors can search for the lost cities of Cibola–but what treasure could be hidden in such poor huts? Victorians can probe lost valleys of southwest Asia, providing they can avoid capture by such primitive peoples. Han Dynasty scouts might even find Eski Koy behind a narrow canyon entrance somewhere along the Silk Road. You don’t have to limit your adventuring.

Remember, every Finger and Toe model comes with SMOOSH ASSURANCE: if ya’ll smoosh Eski Koy, a new set waits your summons from hard drive and printer.
Eski Koy is available from www.rpgnow.com or www.wargamevault.com for $2.50.
