Alexandra Florea's insight:
As I was saying in a previous post, NSKN attended the toy fair in Nürnberg. There, we had the pleasure of a visit from W. Eric Martin, the news master of BoardGameGeek. With Doug behind the camera we talked aboutPraetor, explaining the game mechanism and having a quick look through one turn in a 2-player game.

The NSKN Blog: The Cardboard Olympus: Prologue | The NSKN Boardgames Magazine | Scoop.it
Alexandra Florea's insight:

Although Boardgamegeek is not the “be all end all” of gaming, it is an amazingly large community of gamers both passionate about their hobby, and ready to expand their collections. For this simple reason, placing a game in the site’s top ten is desired by both ambitious designers and prudent publishers alike. But how does one include one of their own products in the formidable company that promises prestige and profit?

Praetor is getting ready to hit the shelves of the hobby stores and to give you a hint of how is this happening, we got some images from the factory where everything is taking place. In all honesty, most manufacturers won't allow taking pictures of they most well kept secrets, but this is what we can share...

The NSKN Blog: An expansion for Exodus - III. Asymmetric game play

The NSKN Blog: An expansion for Exodus - III. Asymmetric game play | The NSKN Boardgames Magazine | Scoop.it
Alexandra Florea's insight:
Over the past two years there was one question / suggestion which popped up almost every time people talked about Exodus: Proxima Centauri... "What about asymmetric game play, special player powers?" and we've been answering that it's planned. Well, it's time to let some details come to light.
As you may already know, there are six faction fighting for dominance in the base game of Exodus. The expansion gives them names, specific features and technologies, action cards and even new ways to score Victory Points.

Alexandra Florea's insight:

For the past year there was one question we had to answer over and over again, "will there be an expansion for Exodus?". I must admit that we avoided that question for a while because we were simply not able to give a straight answer. That has changed, we are actively working on an expansion for Exodus and we plan to release it in Spiel '14 Essen.

The battle for space

The battle for space | The NSKN Boardgames Magazine | Scoop.it
Alexandra Florea's insight:

NSKN Games has already published two games which are considered by many “heavy games” or “gamer’s games”. While we are not disputing this statement, we realized that this is also the result of misconception brought to the gaming world by the size of the respective game boxes.

The NSKN Blog: The strategy review - War of the Ring | The NSKN Boardgames Magazine | Scoop.it
Alexandra Florea's insight:

War of the Ring (second edition) is the one game I seem to never get tired of, I've been playing it regularly over the past half a year and I cannot wait to put it again on my gaming table. It has slowly made me addicted and the more I play, the more possibilities I see, more strategic decisions and more fun. So, let's take a look at the strategy, mostly from the point of view of the "good player", the guy fighting against Sauron.

Alexandra Florea's insight:
2013 come with good news. We have three games already play-tested, with the graphic art ready and made into nice looking prototypes. We also booked a larger space so that we have one playing table dedicated to each game. This way everyone will have the chance of testing, enjoying and giving feedback on the game we plan to release in 2014.
