Mr. B. Games would like to announce two new projects launched on Kickstarter, Days of Ire: Budapest 1956 and Trick of the Rails.
It’s 1956 and waves of protests in Poland are once again showing the cracks in the Eastern European communist bloc. Emboldened by these signs, students and intellectuals in Budapest, the Hungarian capital, organise a protest of previously unseen magnitudes. As the communist leadership sweeps in to kill the movement in its tracks, a violent response is provoked, thus sparking the Revolution of the 23rd of October.
In Days of Ire: Budapest 1956, 1-4 players can experience a historically-inspired, card-driven board game that can be played both co-operatively or in a one-versus-many setting. This game is set during the most explosive time of the Hungarian Revolution of 1956 in Budapest, in which the revolutionary players will be collecting cards and fighters to resolve events and other challenges posed to them by their Soviet opponent (real or simulated) and trying to stay alive throughout the 7 days of fighting – while ensuring that the city doesn’t fall to pieces.
The following is the description from the Trick of the Rails Kickstarter page:
Trick of the Rails is a trick taking, stock holding, track laying card game for 3-5 railroad investors and is themed on the rise of the American railway period. Trick of the Rails combines 18XX-like portfolio management and a trick-taking card game. Players collect stock certificates and make the companies more valuable by laying the rail network.
Designed by Hisashi Hayashi (Trains), Trick of the Rails was originally published in 2011 by Japon Brand and Mr. B. Games is now funding this new version via Kickstarter. For more information on the project visit its Kickstarter page.
