Ra to Return from WindRider Games

At the 2016 GAMA Trade Show, Asmodee North America CEO Christian T. Petersen ran through a long history of the game industry from a publisher's perspective, all to lay out why ANA is adopting the new retailer policies that have been talked about a few times in the past couple of months. I'll post more on that in an overview the week of March 21, 2016.

The only new game announcement from ANA at GTS — from my perspective, mind you, as I've been covering all the announcements from European publishers in our Spielwarenmesse 2016 coverage — is not new at all, but rather a new edition of Reiner Knizia's Ra from WindRider Games.

WindRider Games is a new studio within ANA founded by a few Fantasy Flight Games employees, and WindRider will be the home of titles in the FFG catalog that aren't really FFG titles, such as the previously reprinted Knizia designs Tigris & Euphrates and Samurai, which bear a "Euro Classics" label (i.e. a "not-FFG" label).

WindRider notes that this edition features "all-new graphic design based on the art of Ancient Egypt" with the same gameplay as in Ras past. This version is for 2-5 players and is coming out at the end of Q2 2016 or in early Q3 2016.
