In their latest newsletter, Stronghold Games announced two new releases that will appear in stores on May 25, Piratoons and Animals On Board.


Piratoons is a game with “a great theme, awesome art and unique components, realtime fun, plundering, and a satisfying spatial puzzle.”  In Animals On Board, players will experience a game with “charming animals, that is super easy to learn, and with much more depth than you’d expect.”

In June, Stronghold Games’ Envoy program, Knights of the Stronghold, will be officially demoing Piratoons and My Village at local game stores around the country.  Piratoons will have its demo events on June 4 and 5, so check in your area for game stores hosting this event.
