Stronghold Games has opened preorders to two of its highly anticipated 2012 Essen releases! They are:

Article 27: The UN Security Council Game
…and…
Crude: The Oil Game

And to celebrate these two new upcoming releases, they are running a BGG Contest for you to win copies! WOOT!

To tell you a little bit about these games…

Article 27: The UN Security Council Game
Article 27 takes place in the not-too-distant future. You assume the role of one of the permanent members of the Security Council, which means you wield the power of the veto. No proposal can pass when a member uses their veto, so there had better be something in the deal for you!

Each player will take a turn as the leader of the Security Council and try to get a proposal passed. Negotiations can include side-deals, threats, or outright influence-peddling! But once the gavel comes down it's time to vote, and the other players might not live up to their end of the deal. (Oh... and yes, it comes with a real wooden stained gavel!)

In the end, the player who has earned the most influence points is the winner...and it's rarely the most honorable!

Article 27 takes just 6 minutes per player to play, and it does not require any knowledge of politics or the United Nations to enjoy. If you like games of negotiation, you'll love Article 27! Article 27 refers to the portion of the United Nations Charter that confers veto power onto the permanent member of the Security Council.

Crude: The Oil Game
In Crude: The Oil Game, players take on the role of oil company CEOs, seeking to expand their companies into multi-national energy mega-corporations. Just as with real world energy companies, player will setup facilities for oil drilling, oil pumping, oil refining into gasoline, and gasoline selling to the consumer… all of which are represented by actual plastic pieces placed on the board!

Players also speculate by buying and selling oil and gasoline barrels in both the domestic and foreign markets… again represented by actual plastic barrels in their playing area!

However, the changing economic climate, as well as sudden world news events, will challenge players to keep a long-term strategic view of the world energy markets. The first player to reach a corporation value of $750 million is the winner!

Crude: The Oil Game is not only a great simulation of the global oil markets, but with almost 300 plastic playing pieces, it is a sight to behold! Known as “McMulti” when it was printed in Europe almost 25 years ago, this great game is finally back in print after many years!

If you want to preorder these games, and get the bonus of:
- 30% off MSRP
- Guaranteed to have your games shipped to you before anyone else (and that includes Distributors, Retailers, or other customers)(*)
- A very short time between preorder and game receipt, in fact only a matter of weeks before they ship to you! These games have already been printed and are on the boat steaming toward our warehouse! These games do not need to be “kicked to be started”! ☺

… THEN, please go to the Stronghold Games website to their “September-October Preorders” page.

NOTE: If you just so happen to win the contest but have already preordered, we’ll happily refund you the preorder! So do not hesitate to preorder these two great, and stunningly beautiful, board games! Preorders are limited to only 500 units out of respect to our retail partners, so hurry and preorder now!

(*) Note that these games will be available in limited quantities and at a higher price in Essen and at BGG.CON.

5 / 6; I'm happy with that.

And it's great to see such a fine game coming back - I should dig out my old copy of McMulti and bring it back on the gaming table!

I like it when a wish list item ends up in a contest.

Thanks, Stronghold Games!

Let it also be noted that I would *love* to win a wishlisted game in a contest. Article 27, I'm talking to you. whistle

I bet that the game will end up to a person coming from a country which is permanent member of the security council...

3/6 guessing the answers of Crude...

Yes you understand correctly.

I wants Article 27!

Only 4 correct. I was reasonably certain I had done my homework too.

Article 27 didn't sound like much when I read the description, but the rulebook completely changed my mind. I have a soft spot for any game that allows one to succeed, albeit briefly, but lying through one's teeth.

Sounds like Crude uses more oil to simulate oil than the oil that is being simulated.
