• I already posted an El Grande-related item in February 2023, but now Polish publisher Lucky Duck Games has revealed a non-final cover of the new edition of El Grande that it will release in Polish before the end of 2023, with originating publisher Hans im Glück also releasing this new edition, of course.
• Speaking of Hans im Glück, in June 2023 it revealed a prototype of Karvi, which will debut in October. The game’s short description: “Will you choose trading or raiding? Take your Viking ship on an adventurous journey!”
• Designer Tom Lehmann has unveiled the cover of New Frontiers: The Starry Rift, while noting that this expansion that was first talked about publicly in 2019 still needs to be printed, shipped, etc., but “it looks to be on track for a Q4 2023 release”.
• If you’ve been gaming for a while, you might be familiar with Richard Launius‘ Defenders of the Realm, which Eagle-Gryphon Games released in 2010, then followed with more than twenty expansions large and small.
In 2024, Greater Than Games plans to release a re-vamped version of the game with co-design credit going to Matt Bender, Christopher Burton, Matthew Kroll, and Darrell Louder and a very different look to the game courtesy of Jacob Croft and Nolan Nasser.
The king has put out a call for the heroes of the realm to take up arms and push back the encroaching darkness.
Defenders of the Realm: Legends Retold is a fresh take on the co-operative fantasy classic. Be the heroes who adventure together across the land to destroy the forces of darkness. The game features six unique heroes, each with a unique deck as well as variable player powers. Manage your hand as the more cards you play, the more resources you give to the enemy. Save Monarch City from crushing hordes of goblins, kobolds, skeletons, and demons and the generals that command them.
