Board Game: Wiz-War
Board Game: Wiz-War (Eighth Edition)
• In the category of "you just can't keep a classic game down", Steve Jackson Games has acquired the rights for Tom Jolly's Wiz-War.

In Wiz-War, the player wizards move through a maze, trying to steal treasure from one another or just kill opponents. The game has had multiple editions since its debut in 1983, mostly recently in a Fantasy Flight Games edition from 2012. This new edition will "probably" be released in 2020, although possibly later.

• Along similar lines, French publisher Sorry We Are French plans to release a new version of Kim Satô's GOSU — titled GOSU X — in Q4 2020, and it's released print-and-play files in English (link) and French ( for those who don't want to wait a year.

Board Game: Night Clan
• In mid-2017, Gamephilia released a new edition of Y. Ohashi's Night Clan, which first appeared in 2014 from Japanese publisher Domina Games. That Kickstarter was finally fulfilled in December 2018, and now Japanime Games is apparently distributing the remaining titles in North America, with preorders being fulfilled first, then general orders, with any remaining stock presumably available at conventions in 2020. Here's a summary of the gameplay:
Night Clan is a fast-paced area control game with a hint of deception. Each player is dealt an identical deck of thirteen cards. The players take turns placing their cards, two at a time, on the game's locations. Once all cards have been played, the cards placed in each location are resolved and any remaining cards are used to determine which player has achieved victory.
• In August 2019, while receiving information related to SPIEL '19 releases, German publisher Pegasus Spiele included an intriguing item on its long list of titles:

As you might now know, Hansa Teutonica Big Box did not debut at SPIEL '19. Asked for an update, Pegasus' Ronja Lauterbach has let me know that "it took too long to work things out with the printers and our partners for other countries", so the item was delayed rather than being rushed out. At this time, no release date has been set other than a general date of 2020.
