Thursday, August 21st, 2008

Days of Wonder has announced an agreement to sell the BattleLore Game System to Fantasy Flight Games. You can read the announcement on our Press Releases Page.

If you have questions concerning the transfer to Fantasy Flight Games, please head to the FAQ on our forum.

We anticipate a large number of questions and/or comments regarding this announcement, so please post your questions directly in the BattleLore forum, not on this blog where threads are much harder to read and maintain.

Thank you.

BattleLore – For Troll and Country

Monday, August 11th, 2008

The world of BattleLore is about to get a lot bigger… and a little less friendly. We’re introducing a New Epic Adventure Map series for BattleLore that features large scale Epic maps. And the first in the series includes the new Troll Creature figure and two mean and nasty troll adventures.

Oh… and two more things!

A brief online update of Memoir ’44 and BattleLore

Friday, May 16th, 2008

corpo-100.jpgOur online plans for these two games are (slowly) coming together. Memoir is leading right now, as it is both a simpler and more mature game system. (This may seem trivial, but it is not, especially where the computer game is concerned.)

First, a month ago, we released a much-improved set of tools to browse the Scenarios from the Front, complete with an interactive display that makes finding the Memoir ’44 battles you want to play much easier.

bl-100.jpgWith the start of the year, and BattleLore’s one year anniversary just behind us, we thought now would be a good time to recap what has happened, what hasn’t, and what lays in store for this game and its fans.

Banners in sight!

Friday, August 24th, 2007

As promised, here is a quick update on the two issues we last mentioned:

We just received new sets of Blue long sword banners for your Hyena riders. Note that these are the exact same banners that are already attached to the Blue Regular Cavalry units in your base game of BattleLore. You can either use those, or click here to get our customer service department to send you some new ones!

The Specialist cards with a matching back will take a bit longer to arrive. We are currently at the mercy of lengthy lead times at our printers, who are busy ramping up for Christmas. Current ETA for these sets of replacement cards is mid-November.

What we opted to do is reprint the 10 Specialist cards that came in with your Call to Arms expansion, and give them the same back that is featured on Deployment cards and on all current and future cards in Specialists packs.

Before someone jumps the gun and says this wasn’t the Designer’s intent, it actually was ;-) ! We unfortunately made the mistake of deciding to get fancy and give the Specialist cards a different illustration than the Deployment cards for no other reason that because it looked neat, and that decision came back to bite us :(

So we are reverting back to the original design. The benefit is that you do not have to worry about any of your Specialist sets not matching going forward; furthermore, if you are not bothered by the visual difference, this will then give you another set of these 10 cool generic Specialist cards to play with!

Please do not call or e-mail us individually regarding any of the above, as we will not be able to tell you more than what is written above until the cards arrive. As for the banners, clicking on the link given above is the best way to ensure you receive them promptly.

Last not least, with the 100 Years War and Goblin Marauders now shipping, we have added the adventures that came with them online. We have also included a new web adventure titled “Abandoned Tower”.

Enjoy!
