February 8, 2015 - 9:37pm
Iello has announced two new releases set to release this March: Steam Torpedo: First Contact and The Grasshopper and the Ant!
Steam Torpedo: First Contact is a game that takes place in post-World War I in an alternate reality, where land travel has become nigh impossible and sea travel vital due to vast portions of territories having become a toxic no man’s land. In the game, players attempt to balance the need for oxygen, speed, and torpedoes while their crew defends against the enemy ship. Each player begins by building his or her own submarine by selecting ten tiles to comprise the different sections of the vessel. Players win by destroying the control room of the opposing submarine or by eliminating all opposing crew members.
The First World War has lasted for ten years without any country taking the upper hand and no one can foresee how it shall end. Telin gas, an experimental weapon developed in secrecy, has been used by all armies, either to threaten or to punish and a dangerous game of cat and mouse has ensued...A a non-collectible booster pack will also be released for the game that includes ten new submarine compartment tiles, allowing players to build new submarines and create new strategies! Steam Torpedo: First Contact is for 2 players ages 13 and up and plays in about 30 minutes. For more information about this upcoming game, click here to watch an informative video. The Grasshopper and the Ant is the fourth title in Iello's "Tales & Games" series, and, like the others in the series, will come in a book-shaped box. In the game, players are alternating between the role of the ant and the grasshopper as they attempt to store up food for the coming winter. The game is played on landscape cards laid out in a 4x4 grid as the ant and the grasshopper work to score path cards. The first player to score 4 victory points wins. The Grasshopper and the Ant is for 2-4 players ages 8 and up and plays in about 30 minutes. The game box includes: 48 Round path cards 8 Pawns with stickers 12 Choice tokens with stickers 1 Game board 20 Cubes 14 Provisions cards 6 Power cards Rules More information coming soon to Iello Games' website!
