Historical Photo Edition of El Alamein and Barbarossa announced

October 6, 2015 - 10:43pm
barbarossa Kamikaze games has had some success with their two deckbuilders, Barbarossa and El Alamein, which feature events and locations from both battles, all adorned with scantily clad anime women in revealing poses.  If you find that kind of art distracting but still find the game interesting then you are in luck.  Kamikaze games has announced they will make a limited print run (about 2000) of historical photo editions of both the Barbarossa game and the currently being kickstarted game El Alamein.  So instead of the anime girls you will have cards that feature actual photos taken of the people, vehicles, and places that we involved in those two battles.  They made it a point to say that gameplay will not change with these new cards, only the art will be different.  To get them just head over to the kickstarter page for El Alamein and you can pledge for both historical photo editions of Barbarossa and El Alamein or back lower and add on the individual games if you only want one of them.  Below is the full press release from Kamikaze Games.

 Kamikaze Games has added a Limited First Printing of the Alternate Art Stock Photo Editions of Barbarossa and El Alamein to their current El Alamein Anime Card Game From Japan Kickstarter Campaign. Scheduled to be released in July 2016, the Alternate Art Stock Photo Editions will include the same game cards and rules as the anime editions of El Alamein and Barbarossa, except that the theme and art will be based on the historical battles of El Alamein and Barbarossa. The Alternate Art Stock Photo editions of Barbarossa and El Alamein can be pre-ordered through Kickstarter until October 20, 2015, and they will be available through retail upon their release next year.
The first printing of the Alternate Art Stock Photo Editions of Barbarossa and El Alamein will be a Limited First Edition printing. The first edition copies will be limited to 2,000 copies each and will include a limited edition authenticity card that will only be in the first printing. These Alternate Art Stock Photo Editions will include the same game cards and rules as the anime editions, except that the card art will be stock photos from the real battles of El Alamein and Barbarossa. Kamikaze Games is bringing the rare editions of these excellent deck building card games to English-speaking audiences through Kickstarter. The anime editions of Barbarossa and El Alamein are great deck building card games with interesting mechanics. Kamikaze Games would like to make them more accessible to gamers of all interests by publishing non-anime themed versions of the games. Since the launch of the Barbarossa Kickstarter campaign in 2014, historical board gamers have expressed interest in the game. To appeal to historical war gamers, Kamikaze Games has decided to print this limited edition version of the games that were only available in Japan previously. The El Alamein Anime Deck Building Game from Japan Kickstarter will be live until October 20th, 2015. Both Alternate Art Stock Photo Edition games can be pre-ordered through that Kickstarter campaign as either a Pledge Level or Add-On. They will also be available through retailers when they are released in July 2016. Head to the El Alamein Anime Card Game From Japan Kickstarter Campaign for more details!
