October will bring the releases of The Market of Alturien and Chicago Poker!

Are you Mayfair fans ready for some new games for October? We are excited to announce that we will be releasing two new games in early October, The Market of Alturien™ and Chicago Poker™, with Phalanx Games. If you like building empires, then both of these games should satisfy your need for wealth, influence, and power.

The Market of Alturien, designed by Wolfgang Kramer, pits players against each other in the competitive world of medieval markets. The medieval marketplace of Alturien is awash in intrigue and action. As many as 6 different merchant families compete in a merciless trade battle. All seek wealth, influence, and power. In The Market of Alturien, your merchants vie for the attention of 7 unique trader customers of varying wealth. They stroll the market, while you entice them to ignore your rivals and buy your wares. Using your income, you build new trading halls and create your own mercantile empire. This is a great game for 2-6 competitive players, ages 10 and up, who like games that play in about an hour.

In Chicago Poker, designed by Bruno Fadutti, players compete as notorious gangster bosses in the heyday of organized crime in Chicago. The bosses try to take control of the main legal and illegal sources of profit - speakeasies, gambling houses, jazz clubs, and breweries/distilleries. The first player to either take control 3 businesses of the same kind, 4 different businesses or any 5 businesses, is the winner in Chicago Poker! Cars, crime, and Chicago are the three most important rules in this twist on poker for 2-6 players, ages 10 and up. Chicago Poker plays in 45 minutes, which makes it a great medium length game!

Nice - any more news on Steam?

Naturally I understand if certain issues get in the way of that question, I just thought I'd ask.
