For those of you anxiously awaiting the second printing of Jonathan Ying’s Bargain Quest, you can now also look forward to a brand new expansion, too! This fun little game of adventure and capitalism will offer even more must have items for heroes to choose from.
In Bargain Quest, players take on the role of shopkeeper trying to attract adventuring heroes to their shop over their opponents. Each player will secretly draft from a deck of items to place in their shop windows and then help equip their heroes for an upcoming ad kkiventure. Players earn money to upgrade their shop and hire employees based on how their hero fares in battle.
The Black Market expansion will offer players more heroes, employees, and play modes. A new shipment of items will also be available to entice heroes to battle the new monsters.
Gather up to eight of your friends to see who can run the most successful shop with the most gold and prestige. Renegade Games will be releasing the Black Market expansion in May 2019. Don’t worry if you missed out on the Kickstarter for the base game. It will be available through Renegade Games once the Kickstarter fulfillment is completed.
Renegade Game Studios has announced a new release coming in June 2018.
Junk Orbit is a new game designed by Daniel Solis where players are scavengers literally turning one planet’s junk into another planet’s gold. It’s a combination of set collection, pick up and deliver, and a unique movement mechanism using planetary orbits and some of the junk you’ve collected.
“‘Junk Orbit is a fantastic and very accessible space delivery game that I’m excited for both families and gamers to play!” says Dan Bojanowski, Senior Producer at Renegade Game Studios. “Daniel Solis has done a great job of creating a game with interesting movement and decision-making with plenty of fun nods to sci-fi pop culture. Junk Orbit has tons of replayability with advanced sides for all boards and extra ship powers to try out.’“
The game contains 128 junk tiles, five ships with their respective cards and five double-sided boards. It plays 2-5 players and will take approximately 30-40 minutes to play.
Junk Orbit is available for pre-order now.
Keep an eye on the Renegade Game Studios web site for more information as June approaches.
Renegade Games Studios have announced an expansion to Clank: A Deck-Building Adventure. It’s been almost a year since the last expansion, Clank! Sunken Treasures, which released March 2017. Players will explore a new pyramid themed board with a wandering mummy, which they have to avoid, and new monsters and tombs.
Untold riches await you inside the pyramids of the Ancients – but they are well protected. An undying Mummy guardian spreads a vile curse to those who would rob its tomb. And, inevitably, the treasure has attracted a dragon. Can you escape the fearsome Croxobek? [source]
In Clank! A Deck-Building Adventure, players venture underground to loot treasure as quietly as possible to avoid the dragon’s attention. When the dragon awakens he attacks those who have made the most noise. To win, players need to have the most valuable treasure and make it out of the dungeon alive!
Dire Wolf Digital designed and co-published the first expansion, Clank! Sunken Treasures, and was their first foray into board game publishing. They’ve designed this latest expansion and will co-publish it with Renegade Games.
Scott Gaeta, President of Renegade Game Studios:
The Mummy’s Curse ramps up the suspense as players try to avoid being cursed by the wandering monster. We can’t wait to share this with Clank! fans everywhere!
Clank! The Mummy’s Curse will see release in March 2018. The game is ideal for 2-4 players, aged 12+, and takes 30-60 minutes if players have a particularly good treasure run.
Originally published by Placentia Games and Post Scriptum and funded on Kickstarter, Kepler 3042 has now been picked up by Renegade Games Studios and looking at an Essen release this year. This new version will maintain all of the original game’s rules with only a few clarifications added, but will feature all new artwork by Kwanchai Moriya (who recently produced the captivating art for Flip Ships). Up to 4 pioneers will compete against one another, exploring, colonizing, and developing their way to victory. As further explained in Renegade Games’ press release:
“You must carefully manage your resources as you colonize, exploit, and terraform the planets of the Milky Way, developing critical technologies along the way. Each round, you choose which action to perform and which bonuses to activate to further your goals. The nation with the most victory points at the end will be remembered by history as the greatest explorers in the galaxy!”
With Renegade Games producing quality light and medium weight games over the past few years, this step into a heavier 4X style game is a nice addition to their repertoire and the new art is a definite improvement. The advantage for them is that the game is already pretty well tested and positively reviewed, now with just enough polish to make the game really attractive to those that missed out on the original printing. If you are interested in learning more about Kepler 3042, feel free to check out the previous edition’s campaign page and visit Renegade Games Studios’ website for more information on the new edition.
