Stronghold Games and Portal Games are teaming up to release a 2nd edition of Stronghold. Originally released in 2009 and designed by Ignacy Trzewiczek, Stronghold has players taking on the roles of invaders and defenders in a sprawling asymmetrical castle siege.
“The game board represents the stronghold itself, as well as the surrounding terrain from where the attacking forces launch their siege against the walls of the stronghold. The defender has a small number of soldiers manning the walls, while the invader has an infinite legion of attacking creatures. A desperate fight takes place every turn.”
The second edition promises to streamline the rules, shorten gameplay, and improve the components. The board itself will be bigger and feature brand new artwork. Look for Stronghold 2nd Edition to make an appearance at Essen 2015, and hit store shelves in late 2015.
