Stronghold Games Goes to Mars!
July 19, 2016 - 11:08am
On Monday, July 18th, Stronghold Games will be releasing two new games for pre-order: Terraforming Mars, designed by Jacob Fryxelius, plays 1 to 4 players, ages 12 and up, and takes about 90 minutes. Set in the 25th century, Terraforming Mars is a resource and hand management powerhouse where the players take on the role of large corporations tasked with the goal of making the planet of Mars a habitable environment for Earth's ever-growing population. If you can succeed in raising the sub-zero temperatures, adding oxygen to the atmosphere, and melting those ice caps to let the water flow, then maybe you can succeed at Terraforming Mars! Home after a hard day's work terraforming a distant planet, why not try to have a drink at The Dragon & Flagon? Stronghold's newest game by the designers Engelstein, The Dragon & Flagon, is a chaotic brawl of a game where 2 to 8 players, ages 10 and up, have approximately 1 hour to try and win the last Flagon of The Dragon! You and your fantastical friends will have to avoid flying mugs, chairs, magic, and each other in your attempt to build a reputation that guarantees you get the last sip of, The Dragon! Did your rowdy night at The Dragon & Flagon cause you to miss the latest news on the progress in Terraforming Mars? Fear not, tune in to the Board Games Insider Podcast where they will be broadcasting from Mars (Just go with it...) this summer! Stephen Buonocore, president of Stronghold Games, and Ignacy Trzewiczek, president of Portal Games, are both bringing great new games based on the Red Planet to the hobby this year. Terraforming Mars and First Martians are sure to be out of this world hits! If you have questions for these two giants in the field, Stephen and Ignacy invite you to submit them <here>. They also have their very own guild over at BGG and would love it if you'd come help them reach their goal of 500 members by clicking <here>.
