The upcoming games arriving in the fourth quarter of 2012 will also be presented for the first time at Gen Con. One of them is the playable preview of Aztlán, a Euro-style strategy game of conquest and civilization, designed by Leo Colovini, with bluffing and challenging mechanics, for 3 to 4 players. In the mythical land of Aztlán, ancestral home of the Nahuatl (Aztec) people, four tribes strive to survive and prosper, under the scrutiny of the Aztec Gods themselves.
For the War of the Ring fans, Ares Games will show a preview of Lords of Middle-earth, the first expansion for War of the Ring Second Edition, which will allow players to explore different possibilities in the game. It will feature more cards, miniatures and action dices, and introducing mechanics related to the use of action dices connected to the new characters – Elrond, Galadriel, Sméagol, Gothmog and the powerful Balrog of Moria, as well as alternate versions of Gandalf, the Witch-king and the Mouth of Sauron.
