Two New Releases From Calliope Games
October 24, 2017 - 6:25am
ShutterBug, by designer Mike Elliot (Dice Masters) and Calliope Games, pits 2-6 players in the back woods of America, looking to be the first to take pictures of the mysterious hidden creatures roaming there. Players take turns over 8 rounds, moving their pawns and collecting tip cards, leading them to their quarry. Trade tips with other players and score points, all while fulfilling side jobs and trying to achieve your secret assignment. Most points at the end of 8 rounds wins. Look for Shutterbug in November 2017. In Capitol City, by James Ernest (Kill Doctor Lucky) and Calliope Games, players have 4 rounds (seasons) to build the best wild west town. Each season the train brings in new workers, some good and some bad, to help develop main street. Players bid for priority on the upcoming season, choose characters from the train and then purchase building cards. Attach characters to buildings to gain money or points, and gain special bonuses for related kinsfolk - either your own or other players'. Capital City is due for release in November 2017.
