New Game Under Development

I'm pleased to announce a partnership with Neal Reid to commercialise his new card game "VIII Corps: The Somme 1916". Click here to see the cover design.

It is a two player card game covering the experience of the British VIII Corps on the first day of the Battle of the Somme, July 1st 1916. The game follows the course of the pre-battle preparation and the first day of the battle itself. It is not a balanced game and one where the British will find it very hard to win.

The game is currently in the final stages of development. The pdf release is scheduled for the end of April when it will be released in separate A4 & US letter versions. The pdf bundle will contain a rules booklet, a booklet of illustrated examples of play and three sets of cards for you to print at home. We are contemplating producing printed cards if there's sufficient demand.

If you would like to know more you can read about Neal's early development work on his blog plus you can sign up online to be notified of the release date and let us know if you'd be interested in printed cards.
