Weekly digest of new Tabletopia games

Today, we are happy to present to you

 

1. K2

K2 is the second-highest mountain on Earth as well as the second deadliest. It’s known as the Savage Mountain, as it kills one person for every four who have reached the summit… And K2 has never been climbed in winter.

 

K2 is a hand management game by REBEL.pl with strong interaction and low luck factor. The theme is very well represented by the mechanics, including such elements as changing weather, lack of oxygen and death of the mountaineers. The result is an exciting match for gamers and non-gamers alike.

 

Number of Players: 1 − 5

Playing time: 60 min.

Suggested age: 13+

Mechanics: Hand Management, Player Elimination, Point to Point Movement, Simultaneous Action Selection

Theme: Mountains, Sports

2. Stronghold (2nd edition)

Stronghold is a two-player game telling the story of a siege. Players take opposing sides: one has to defend the stronghold, and the other has to break into the castle as soon as possible. The game board represents the stronghold itself as well as the surrounding terrain, where enemy forces are placed and whence they proceed to the walls.

 

The defender has a small number of soldiers manning the walls, while the invader has an infinite legion of attacking creatures. A desperate fight takes place every single turn. The invaders build war machines, equip their soldiers, train them, and use black magic rituals to achieve victory. Meanwhile, defenders repair walls, build cannons, train soldiers, and do everything they can to hold the castle as long as possible.

 

If the invader manages to break into the castle before the end of seven rounds, they win; otherwise the defender wins.

 

Number of Players: 2

Playing time: 45 − 90 min.

Suggested age: 10+

Mechanics: Action Point Allowance System, Area Control / Area Influence, Point to Point Movement, Variable Player Powers

Theme: Fantasy, Combat

Play zone: https://beta.tabletopia.com/play/stronghold-2nd-edition

 

 

3. Kraftwagen

In 1888, Bertha Benz, wife of car pioneer Karl Benz, undertook the first long-distance (relatively speaking) overland drive in an automobile from Mannheim to Pforzheim in Germany. On her way, her car ran out of fuel, so she had to get the correct chemicals to keep going. Thus, the city drugstore of Wiesloch became the world's first gas station.

 

Very quickly, the automobile — the "Kraftwagen" — became a common means of transportation, and shortly thereafter the first Grand-Prix races were conducted at the Nürburgring and the AVUS.

 

Only forty years later, Germany possessed a dense road network. The combustion engine had triumphed over electric and steam drives, and cars were produced on the assembly belt. Manufacturers were also even producing less expensive cars for wider sections of the people.

 

Kraftwagen transfers players to the time when cars came to maturity in Germany and Europe.

 

Number of Players: 2 − 4

Playing time: 75 min.

Suggested age: 10+

Mechanics: Time Track

Theme: Automobiles
