Irongames has announced some exciting new releases for the month of April, and here we are offering a glimpse at these new titles! Peloponnes
In Peloponnes, each player is trying to establish one of seven different civilizations in 1,000 BC. To do this, they must erect buildings and annex land to be developed, thereby increasing both their wealth and their population.In this game designed by Bernd Eisenstein, players will bid on tiles and gather income, after which disaster tiles will be revealed that could affect all players. Land tiles, building tiles, and inhabitants are all worth victory points. The winner will achieve the most points, thus making them the most dominant civilization on the peninsula at the start of a new millennium. Peleponnes is a game for 1-5 players ages 10 and up, and plays in 15-50 minutes. PAX
Enter Rome at the time of the slave uprisings under Spartacus! The escaped rebels have managed to gain influence and power. Rome is attempting to undermine the stronger armies of the slaves in order to restore “pax”, or peace – but only for personal gain. Will the Empire collapse under the strain, or will their promises to insurgents succeed in drawing them to their side?In PAX, players take on the role of the escaped slave underground. Using their cards, they will attempt to undermine the Roman establishment and increase their sphere of influence. Players will win the game by developing more strength than Rome (and any other player). This game involves tricky tactical decisions, and a player can, through deception and intrigue, side with Rome to aid in a victory over the slave revolt.
