Labyrinth board game announcement

So we have some quite exciting news…

We have been working with The Jim Henson Company and have secured the licence to make a board game based on the magical film Labyrinth!

We can’t, at time of writing, tell you much more about it at the moment, but rest assured that the film is a firm favorite here at River Horse and we are very excited to be making the game.

If you haven’t already, sign up to our newsletter (sign up on the home page) and we will keep you informed on all the twists and turns as we journey further into the world of Jim Henson’s Labyrinth.

 

Until then, come join the conversation on the Facebook page here.Teaser Gramatically Correct

Waterloo – “Quelle Affaire” Now live on Kickstarter!

Our new game Waterloo – “Quelle Affaire” is now live on Kickstarter HERE!

Screenshot 2015-06-04 12.48.29We have funded and are through our first stretch goal!

The game has been designed by Origins-awards winner Alessio Cavatore (Warhammer, Bolt Action, Lord of the Rings Strategy Battle Game, Terminator Genisys the miniatures game, etc.). The units in the game are activated by cards that represent the Commanders of the various army corps, as well as Stratagem cards that add more fun, strategy and unpredictability to the battle. These cards are full of quotes both from history and from famous Napoleonic movies: “By God, sir, I have lost my leg. – By God, sir, so you have.” or “We shall match them with our lancers!” Nobody can resist reading these with the right accent…

 

The challenge You win the game by destroying half the total combat strength of the enemy army. This task is easier for the French when only one army faces them. However, if Wellington’s forces survive long enough for the Prussians to finally arrive, the tip of the scale will swing in favour of the Allies, and the French are probably going to find themselves fighting for their life. And nobody can be sure exactly when the Prussians are going to appear in the East…2 people

Combat and movement are extremely simple and gameplay is fast – all the information necessary is on the counters and on the cards themselves – no complex charts to look up results on.

Warlord Games Day 2014

image (16)

We had a great time this Saturday (27th July) at the second of Warlord’s growing Games Days.

Although it was sauna like in the upstairs hall, we did manage a full day of demo’ing Loka and Shuuro with out melting (too much)

Alessio had to run off mid demo to give a talk on the future of Bolt Action and how good the new Tank book is going to be and to attend a Q&A session.

Thanks to everyone who came to say hello on the day, it was nice to meet you and to teach battle strategy  to the lucky owners of shiny new Lokas,

• Loka was launched in November, as well as a supplement for the game, Yuddah.

• On behalf of Sword & Board Games, River Horse helped produce 12 Elements of War, a fantasy skirmish game where you control one of five factions vying for power in the war-torn Eastlands. Created by Tristan Abdini and Dennis Bourke, River Horse provided rules editing and proof-reading services, as well as art and graphics and layout. The rulebook is currently at the printers, and Sword & Board.

• At the end of 2013, River Horse completed work on the 15mm miniatures wargame, All Quiet on the Martian Front, for Robot Peanut Studios. Set in 1914 as a sequel to H.G. Wells’s War of the Worlds, the game pits invading Martians against the human defenders of Earth. River Horse provided rules editing and proof-reading services, as well as graphics and layout. The game is set for release by Robot Peanut Studios later this year.

• In the first months of 2014 River Horse wrote and produced a campaign supplement for Mantic’s Kings of War tabletop wargame. Pitting Dwarfs against their infernal cousins, the Abyssal Dwarfs, the protagonists fight through six interconnecting scenarios (and a new scenario for the Dwarf King’s Hold game) as they battle to retrieve the fabled Quartz Sceptre.

• River Horse’s partnership with Warlord Games continues from strength to strength, with two new supplements produced since the last news bulletin. The Zulu supplement for Black Powder was completed by the end of 2014, and Germania, a supplement for Hail Caesar, is due to go to the printers by the end of April.

• Work in progress includes the production of River Horse’s latest Kickstarter success, The Tarot of Loka, due for completion in mid-May.
