KOSMOS is coming out with a new board game, Cities Skylines- The Board Game, designed by Rustan Håkansson. This 1-4 player cooperative game is based on the video game Cities: Skylines where you and your team will plan and develop your own metropolis!
To create this thriving city, you will need to expand while keeping in mind pollution, traffic, crime, and other problems that arise throughout the course of the game. Replayability will be high as there are multiple starting scenarios where you will build different cities with unique buildings as you attempt to keep the population in a good mood.
Cities Skylines- The Board Game is set to come out October, 2019. You can preorder the game here.
Bad Crow Games has launched a Kickstarter campaign bringing the video game series to the table! Company of Heroes Board Game is a 2-4 player game (there is a solo and co-op campaign as an add on option) that utilizes strategy to outmaneuver your opponents just like what the video game series offers.
Company of Heroes Board Game is advertised as a real-time-strategy game but has the option of playing as a turn-based game as you attempt to build your economy to grow your army, participate in a mostly diceless combat system, upgrade your troops by investing in them, and choose your commander to compliment your play-style.
Components in the core set include 32 vehicles, 150 infantry figures, 55 custom dice, 44 figure trays, 120 acrylic markers, and 12 production tiles.
