Wars Across the World

Greetings everyone!

Here at Aleph Game Studio we are always trying to come up with something new to offer.

This time “this something new” is called “Aleph Pocket Series” and before going wherever you’re planning to spend your summer holidays, we would like to share with you what it is all about.

Aleph Game Studio is proud to announce the beginning of a co-operation with Philippe Thibaut (the author of boardgame titles such as “La Grande Guerre” or the most famous grand-strategy “Europa Universalis”) and Stéphane Parrin (Strategiae).

The first step to initiate the Aleph Pocket Series will be the production of the tabletop version of some titles from Wars Across the World, a famous videogames series developed by Stéphane Parrin.

This series distinguishes itself by having basic rules common to all titles plus a few additional dedicated rules for each scenario. The uniqueness of this game system is its speed: all the titles can be played in less than two hours, without leaving behind its brilliant gameplay perception.

Each title will be produced in a “slim box” where inside you will find:

  • 1 “A3” format map;
  • 36 play cards;
  • A counter sheet with 108 game counters;
  • 1 Battle Card;
  • 1 16-pages Basic Rules book in colours;
  • 1 4-pages Specific Rules book in colours.

By the last week of August we will prepare the pre-orders campaign for the first 4 Titles which we would like to publish:

  • Hamilkar 264 B.C.: The First Punic War in Sicily;
  • Tannenberg 1914: The Opening Campaign on the Eastern Front in World War 1;
  • Normandy 1944: The Greatest Military Operation ever done;
  • Six Days 1967: The Blitzkrieg in the Middle East.

Our plans for “Aleph Pocket Series” is to publish 4 titles per year!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Happy summer holidays everyone!

Build railways in Northern Italy!

As promised, today starts the pre-order campaign for 1883!

Manlio Manzini (1841) takes us to the Northern Italy of 1883, the year before the Government approved a law that allowed the birth of small local railway companies in order to improve connections in the peninsula.
In 1883 the provinces of Reggio Emilia and Modena are full of small, disconnected and isolated tracks.

Players: 2-4
Game time: 4 hours

 

 

 

 

 

In this new game, inspired by the very famous 18XX series, from 2 to 4 rail barons will compete to earn money and build the best bonds portfolio investing and operating on the Italian railway system from 1845 to 1945.

Will you be able to improve the railway network in this part of the Padana Plain by connecting  the most remote towns in the Emilian Apennines with the Great River Po?

 

 

 

 

 

 

From today you will be able to pre-order your own copy of 1883 at the price of €55 by clicking the following link.

Shipment costs:

  • Italy: €8

  • 1 55x69cm mounted map;
  • 6 counters sheets;

  • 183 cards including: Locomotives of that time, Bonds Certificates, Events, Political Endorsements;

Newsletter (20th June 2018)

Welcome back everyone! After a few months of intense work, we’re back with some important updates about our ongoing productions.

But let’s take a step at a time and have a look at the two titles that will be available on pre-order very soon:

BAROQUE

Our first title by the great Richard H. Berg is essentially ready!  By the end of June and the first days of July the pre-orders “campaign” will commence so you will have all the information about this title and a little sneak peek at some of  its components!
But for now, just take a look at the amazing cover picture created by
Jessica Prando:

1883

Our first title inspired by the 18XX series is in its final art phase, so by the second-half of July we will start the pre-orders phase.

Take a look a our other future projects:

METRAS

About this project, we are evaluating together with the authors several options for its publication. It is not an abandoned project, on the contrary, we strongly believe in this promising title!

LA BELLE EPOQUE

After several intense playtests, the author decided to go back to work on the game system, so this title is going to take longer to publish.

We at Aleph, however, are not working only on the immediate present, but we have started to lay some foundations for other future projects! Let’s have a look at some of them:

RICHARD H. BERG

Other than Baroque, The Glory that Was Greece and 1813 – Glory’s End, the will to co-operate with this author continues and we signed agreements for other two of his titles that will be produced in 2019 (or maybe even before!):
– Conquistador, 2nd Edition: a new edition of the SPI classic Conquistador;
– Magenta and Solferino, 2nd Edition (the two battles included inside Risorgimento 1859, by GMT).

THE teasER CORNER (part 1)

What we can tell you is that we are going to start an intense playtesting of some titles of a very famous French author from the past, who has decided to come back in the wargames production, but with a modern approach. Without spoiling anything more, we are going to start for the moment with:
– a series of titles, with a common set of rules, inspired by a videogame series;
– a title about the barbaric invasions in Europe, inspired by the legendary title Britannia.
There will be a third title in the pipeline, but it’s still too early to talk about this one… sorry!

THE teasER CORNER (part 2)

We are also organizing a playtesting of very, very interesting wargame by a very talented Italian author.
You should have already guessed something with all the information we gave to you guys, right? No? Well…

What can we say is to just keep in touch for the next news!

Happy gaming folks!
