F2Z Entertainment, known for publishing popular brands of tabletop games such as Filosofia, Z-Man Games, Pretzel Games, and Plaid Hat Games, officially announces a new game in the line of Z-Man’s Merchants & Marauders, Broadsides. Merchants & Marauders: Broadsides is a two-player, stand-alone game that puts players “in the boots of a fearless ship captain.” In this confrontational game designed by Joshua Cappel, players will be working to survive a deadly battle by spending resources to defend and repair their ship whilst trying to destroy the enemy ship.
The following is an excerpt from the official press release:
Through your spyglass, you see a profitable sea lane, just waiting to be claimed. But competition is closing in, and the battle is inevitable: Load your cannons! Hoist the red flag! Will you be able to sink the enemy before they send you feeding the sharks?
Merchants & Marauders: Broadsides is scheduled for release at Gen Con in August of 2016. More details will be released soon as it becomes available.
