Wise Wizard Games announced the launch of Wacky Wizard Games, a new brand imprint focused on family-friendly, lightweight games. Three games are planned for release in 2024 as part of this new brand imprint: Star Realms Academy, Caution Signs, and Pack the Essentials. If you are interested and attending PAX Unplugged they will have prototypes of Caution Signs and Pack the Essentials. "We are super excited to be adding this new family friendly product line to our catalog. We wanted to maintain the focus of Wise Wizard Games on strategy card and dice games with geeky themes, and have created Wacky Wizard Games as an umbrella for lightweight games with a more whimsical, cute vibe," shared Debbie Moynihan, COO of Wise Wizard Games. Star Realms Academy Forge your own star realms, overloaded with cuteness! A kid friendly but still fun for grown-ups version of the popular Star Realms deckbuilding game for 2 players. A little less math, no reading necessary, but still tons of fun! 

Dead Reckoning Letters of Marque by AEG Coming Soon to Kickstarter


AEG announced the start date of their upcoming crowdfunding campaign for the Letters of Marque expansion for Dead Reckoning will be August 9th. If you missed out on the hit swashbuckling 4x strategy game Dead Reckoning, now is your chance to get it along with the third Saga expansion.

Dead Reckoning is a game of exploration, piracy, and influence based in a Caribbean-esque setting. Each player commands a ship and crew and seeks to amass the greatest fortune. They do this through pirating, trading, treasure hunting, and (importantly) capturing and maintaining control over the uninhabited but resource-rich islands of the region.

The game was funded through Kickstarter in August 2020, becoming the most successful campaign of AEG, with more than 8,400 backers and grossing close to $1 million! With 2 Sagas already published, Deep Legends and Salt & Thunder, AEG aims to bring even more variety to your tables and exciting gameplay moments!

"The most important thing to understand about the Sagas is that they are essentially expansion content that gets gradually and thematically added to your game", mentions John D Clair, designer of the game.

Letters of Marque is the third Saga for Dead Reckoning. After years of New Sea being the dominion of cutthroat pirates, opportunistic privateers, and daring merchant adventurers, the empires of the old world have turned their gaze toward its waters. Letters of Marque contains 2 distinct but interconnected sets of expansion content. The first is Flags of the Old World, a non-saga based set of content that introduces 2 empire boards, new resources, new ship upgrades and a new Explorer card for each player's deck. The second is a new Saga which, like prior Saga expansions, contains encounters, mysteries, cards and content all to be discovered organically while playing the game.
