Renegade Games Growing Worldwide  

San Diego, CA (April 11th,2017)  Renegade Game Studios is pleased to announce that Honshu will be reaching hobby stores in North America on May 17th! Honshu is a thoughtful map building game that offers a big game experience in a small and travel-friendly box! 


Honshu is played in rounds, with each round is divided into two phases. During the first phase, Map cards are revealed and the player who played the highest value card gets to pick first from those played. In phase two, the players use their chosen Map card to expand their personal maps. Each player must expand their personal maps to maximize their scoring possibilities. After 12 rounds, players will score points for lakes, forests, residential areas, and production of goods within their city.

Manipulating your position in the player order is crucial for mastering Honshu.

This delightful card game was released by last year at Essen to much critical acclaim. It has already been awarded the Spiel of Approval Award and a Dice Tower Seal of Approval and nominated for the Golden Geek Awards for Best Card Game

Minor updates to the upcoming release include the additional of a score pad to make endgame scoring as smooth and straightforward as possible.
