Māori: Warriors of the Long White Cloud live on Kickstarter!
A historic simulation game for one to four players, depicting clan warfare typical in New Zealand before European colonization.
Māori: Warriors of the Long White Cloud live on Kickstarter!
Māori: Warriors of the Long White Cloud is a 1-4 player card-driven, strategic level game where players compete to become New Zealand’s sole Paramount Chief.

Players collect resources, train their populations, and fortify new villages to expand across the islands and recruit neighboring iwi (or tribes). Where you choose to focus your people and resources will play a crucial role in the game’s power struggle. However your strategy can quickly be derailed by the uncertainty of event cards.

Will your be the last chief standing?


Since our last newsletter, we’ve got not one, not two, but THREE new preorder game titles to share with you. Check them out below!

Europe in Turmoil II: The Interbellum Years now on Preorder!
Europe in Turmoil II: The Interbellum Years now on Preorder
Europe in Turmoil II: The Interbellum Years, 1920-1939 is a two-player card-driven game simulating the political events in Europe between the First and Second World Wars. Players assume the role of respectively the moderate Left Wing and moderate Right Wing politicians in the Nation-states of Europe, striving with their counterparts for political dominance while simultaneously using and ignoring their own extreme wings. Players will alternate playing event cards trying to influence the various nations of Europe. Events refer to the rise of power of Facism in Italy and Germany, political instability in the successor states of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, Disarmament and Rearmament, the ineffective League of Nations, the influence of Communist Russia on events in Western and Central Europe, the Spanish Civil War and various other historical events.
Europe in Turmoil: Prelude to The Great War, Deluxe Edition now on Preorder!
Europe in Turmoil: Prelude to The Great War, Deluxe Edition now on Preorder!
Europe in Turmoil: Prelude to The Great War, DELUXE Edition is a card-driven game set at the beginning of the 20th Century in which two players each assume the role of a political ideology ascendant in Europe at that time. This Deluxe edition is not simply upgraded components. We also made some changes, in order to make this a true Second Edition rather than a mere reprint. This new Deluxe version is a comprehensive update of all components to better align with the upcoming Europe in Turmoil II (with errata incorporated and clarifications added), including a MOUNTED map, two new player aids, and one new scenario.
Breaking the Chains 2.0 now on Preorder!
Breaking the Chains 2.0 now on Preorder!

Current events have compelled China to employ its three aircraft carriers along with modern destroyers, amphibious ships, marines and paratroopers to assert control over the South China Sea. This new 2.0 edition features a MOUNTED map, upgraded counters, and updates for incorporating errata, colorized rules book, new Designer Notes and FAQ, and four new scenarios.
