Dark Seas

At the GAMA Trade Show every year, game publishers, designers, and media creators like us at The Dice Tower, get together in Las Vegas for a week long convention of sorts. The GAMA Trade Show is not open to the general public, but concentrates on the publishers, and designers showcasing their upcoming games to media creators and game distributors.

Here at some AEG news to report from the show.

Here is a list of games coming out soon:

  • Rumpelstilskin: this is a 2 player hidden role game coming this June.

Dark Seas

Dark Seas

Build a pirate empire in the uncharted Plunder Islands of the Carribbi-er, Cairebbe-er, near the Gulf of Mexico! Seize your destiny of buccaneer-rific awesomeness, and gather hordes of pirates, hordes of doubloons, greater infamy, and ever more treasure!

Dark Seas is a tile placement game. Each player builds their island, filling its ports with docks, hideouts, and more. Each player rolls a set of custom dice, then everyone uses the result to sail their ships around their islands, and build their reputation by recruiting pirates, gathering doubloons, and acquiring treasure and infamy. Whoever amasses the greatest reputation wins!

Doomtown Faith and Fear

Doomtown: Reloaded: Faith and Fear

Gomorra needs a Revival!

After the disastrous Election Day, Gomorra seems like a town devoid of mercy or grace, but there are some devoted to the work of the divine. Bringing blessings and simple compassion, these souls seek not only to raise up the meek, but drive out those who would destroy. But can the same be said of the new mayor?

Doomtown: Reloaded is a fast paced expandable card game set in the Deadlands universe of gun slingin’, spell slingin’ and mud-slingin’!

Faith and Fear is the first “Pinebox” set for Doomtown: Reloaded and introduces the new Blessed dudes and their miracles. But of course other forces are always at work, and you’ll find many new cards for all your favorite factions, including four entirely new outfit cards!
