KING OF NEW YORK

THE HIGHLY ANTICIPATED FOLLOW-UP TO
RICHARD GARFIELD'S KING OF TOKYO!

 

There's always something happening in the city that never sleeps.

Stomp on buildings in each of New York's boroughs. But beware: Every roll of the dice might mean that your monster feels the OUCH, as military units open fire. Will you grab the spotlight, and become a celebrity Superstar? Or will you become the defender of the city, and befriend Lady Liberty?

 

Come to our Press Event on booth #449 Thursday at 10:00 AM, and be the first to discover the board, new monsters and rules!

HEROES OF NORMANDIE

A FAST-PACED WW2 STRATEGY WARGAME
INSPIRED BY HOLLYWOOD WAR MOVIES!

 

It is summer, 1944. The sun shines on Normandie hedgerows. Gentle wind, fields of bright flowers, and in the background, the romantic staccato of machine gun fire in the morning. In these typical French countryside landscapes, thousands of men are about to fight. And die. Bravely like heroes, or cowardly like wussies. But only heroes really matters. Those you see in Hollywood classic war movies. This is where Heroes of Normandie draws its inspiration; here is what the game has to offer: explosive and fast-paced battles; the pleasure of destroying your enemies with streams of hot lead from your MG42, or crushing nazi bastards under tons of mortar shells... Basically, blood and guts and glory!
