Just in time for the holidays, Eagle Games and Gryphon Games is releasing two new expansions (one for Defenders of the Realm and one for Railways of the World) and a reprint which should be available as of this writing.
Here’s the latest from the companies:
In case you were sleeping the first time through.
Defenders of the Realm is a fantasy board game in which 1-4 players, playing co-operatively, each take a role as one of the King’s Champions (Barbarian, Cleric, Dwarf, Eagle Rider, Paladin, Ranger, Rogue, and Sorcerer). They heed the King’s call to defend the realm, which is under siege from the forces of Orc, Dragon, Undead, and Demon.
Your name will be mentioned in bards’ tales for years to come if you can strike down an enemy general, but recognize, brave champion, that there is no time to rest when a general is defeated. Word of a general’s defeat travels fast, and the remaining generals literally double their efforts and push even harder to achieve their goal…the capture and destruction of Monarch City! Playable in 90-120 minutes, 1-4 players, age 13 and up, MSRP $84.99 – Save 25% at Funagain and only pay $63.39!
Railways of the Western U.S. is an exciting new expansion for the highly popular Railways of the World board game series. It is 1863 and the construction of the first transcontinental rail system has begun. This mechanized transportation network will take years to complete, but it will render obsolete the wagon trains of old, and revolutionize the economy of the West.
The Western U.S. expansion introduces the fuel depot, which facilitates staged, longer deliveries, and the city rotor, which creates cities with demands that vary as new goods are delivered. This map is also designed to match up with the Eastern U.S. map…hmmm, maybe there is something we can do with that in the future. Playable in 120 minutes, 2-6 players, age 13 and up, MSRP $34.99 – $27.99 at Funagain!
