Stephen Buonocore of Stronghold Games has released a newsletter full of news for 2016, beginning with the announcement that he plans to leave his regular full-time job to give 100% of his attention to Stronghold Games.  He hopes to make this move before the end of the year.

Following this is the announcement that Stronghold Games’ Pocket Line (including Diamonds) will be expanding to include Bear Valley (Carl Chudyk) and Stellar Conflict, a fast-paced space combat game with real-time elements set in the Among the Stars Universe.

Stronghold also announces further summer 2016 releases to include their first pirate-themed game, PiratoonsCity of Spies: Estoril 1942, and The Pursuit of Happiness.  Additionally, Stronghold discusses their podcast, Board Games Insider, co-hosted by Stephen Buonocore and Ignacy Trzewiczek, and the progress made in 23 episodes so far.

For more details on this year’s upcoming titles, visit the Stronghold Games website here.

dominion empires

Rio Grande games has posted a short paragraph on it’s website revealing the theme of Empires, the latest expansion for Dominion.

The world is big and your kingdom gigantic. It’s no longer a kingdom really; it’s an empire. Which makes you the emperor. This entitles you to a better chair, plus you can name a salad after yourself. It’s not easy being emperor. The day starts early, when you light the sacred flame; then it’s hours of committee meetings, trying to establish exactly why the sacred flame keeps going out. Sometimes your armies take over a continent and you just have no idea where to put it. And there’s the risk of assassination; you have a food taster, who tastes anything before you eat it, and a dagger tester, who gets stabbed by anything before it stabs you. You’ve taken to staying at home whenever it’s the Ides of anything. Still overall it’s a great job. You wouldn’t trade it for the world – especially given how much of the world you already have.

The expansion is due to be released some time in 2016.

That is all of the information we have right now about this, the 10th expansion for the grand-daddy of deck-building games. Click the link to visit Rio Grande’s Dominion : Empires page.

As most anyone that follows the Dice Tower would know, our Podcasts and videos are advertising free (with the exception of our sponsor, Cool Stuff Inc.). In order to provide that to our listeners we, once a year, create a fund-raiser on Kickstarter to not only go advertising free – but allow for expanded content. Upon reaching various different stretch goals, the Dice Tower will be adding Chaz Marler (Pair of Dice Paradise) as a part-time contributor as well as a possibility of him providing his top 100. Various other goals include the ability to have a booth at Essen as well as Jared Whitley producing his top 100. Hopefully, if we achieve enough, we will be able to hire a full-time video editor that will allow us to focus on producing more content!

To achieve these goals, there are a number of different pledge levels and promo packs available. Below are just a few images of some of the exciting things you can get by helping sponsor the Dice Tower in 2016. There is so much more than what’s listed below. You can visit the Kickstarter campaign here for all the details.
