Issue 12 of the Z-Man Games Newsletter is up!

This month we take a look at the newly released Endeavor, and chat with the designers about thier creation. The upcoming Skyline 3000, and Megacorps are reviewed, and we take a closer look at the first in the Pocket Battles series: Pocket Battles: Celts vs Romans. Of course, we also have the updated release schedule!

If you have the time and inclination, and given this issue represents 12 months of the Z-Man Games Newsletter (woohoo!), we would love to get any feedback, thoughts and opinions about the newsletter: what you like, don't like, what's useful and any things you'd like to see in the future! email us at newsletter-at-zmangames.com


The newsletter can be downloaded at the Z-Man Games website: www.zmangames.com

or you can find it directly here: http://www.zmangames.com/artwork/Newsletter_Issue%2012.pdf

Cheers,

Giles.

I enjoyed the long interview with the Endeavor designers (especially their hint about a possible expansion) and the preview of Pocket Battles, which I'd never heard of before.

Looks great...keep up the fantastic work. The whole thing makes me want to get my hands on Endeavor REALLY badly.

It might not be possible but perhaps highlighting one of those 2010 releases would be pretty sweet. I would love to see some more information on Monster Liner.

Overall its got a nice, easy to read layout and I loved reading the interview with the designers. Good stuff!

Btw, Endeavor is mentioned to have 3-5 players as well as 2-4 players in the same page even.

Man!

I should say that I always leave in at least one mistake for you guys to pick up on - and well spotted, but truth is blush I missed that!

Well, there is a neat variant here on BGG for 2... so I was right in terms of potential range!

Thanks for pointing that out!

Cheers,

Giles.

Edit: updated version should be up soon-ish!

Update:

A little more info on this one:

Should be released early-ish 2010 - keep an eye on the newsletter and the Z-Man Games website.

It is designed by Peter Hawes, the designer of Heads of State. It's a game for 2-4 players. There are attacks, but it's not a wargame so much as it is players trying to control the country. Towns, ports and castles can be attacked, and bishops, sea captains and nobles can be bribed.

Zev says the great part is the simultaneous secret planning for the turn...

I hope that keeps yo interested until the newsletter or the website says more!!

Cheers,

Giles.
