The News:

We currently have our noses to the grindstone wrapping up approvals, with some more pre-production samples on their way. We have had all the content looked at for edits, revisions, and final approvals across both the Greenbrier and Twinfire teams. With sign offs underway, we can send the files out to the manufacturer and start getting some real proofs to share soon. Our number one priority has been getting all the content out for manufacturing first. That being said we’ve also been getting the PM ready to go, such as product descriptions and images. We need to upload your information and polish the details with our partners at pledgemanager.com, but it will be up and running in the second half of January.

While waiting for this release, here is a tale from Kremel, “The Witch Hunter and the Seethe of Two Right Hands”.

Coming Soon:

We are thrilled to tell you that our 4x game, Helios Expanse, designed by Shawn McLeod, is underway to go on Kickstarter in March. Look for it soon!

Colonizing System Sol was doomed from the start. The initial steps leaving Earth1, centuries ago, were full of hope. The excitement of science and exploration was met with the competition between countries to always be the first. The former sentiment propelled humans further into the universe, while the latter manifested in wasted resources, war, and destruction. Over three hundred years after the first moon walk, the human race had made it to the edges of the system, and in doing so, had used all the resources needed to sustain life for the next hundred. It was the twilight of everything, save one fissure of possibility…

You are a faction of humanity, hurtling towards an unknown planetary jackpot with centuries of old grudges against the other key players and ships filled to bursting. Program your card actions in advance, then play out each round, grabbing and colonizing as many planets as you can using movement, stealth, technology and military prowess. Helios expanse is for 3-6 players and is an hour of face paced game play!

That’s all there is folks, until next time.
