Newsletter (20th December 2019)

Welcome back everyone and we hope you enjoy this update on our next products and projects!



Our next production will be this exciting title from Paolo Carraro, which will be set between the end of 1800s and the beginning of 1900s, just before the First World War

This game, for 2-4 players and with a duration of about 3 hours, will be also our first project on Kickstarter.

In La Belle Epoque players will take on the role of one of the 4 Great Powers of that period (France, Russia, Great Britain and the Central Empires) to form alliances, conquer the last Colonies and trying not to stay behind in the race for new technologies and armaments. Only one thing will stop you: the break of World War 1!



Finally, also these titles produced in co-operation with Stephan Parrin’s Strategiae and the help of Philippe Thibault (Europa Universalis, La Grande Guerre) are going to be produced and distributed.

We are finishing the new graphics and the rulebook full of examples.

For our Italian customers we will provide, included in their pre-order, a copy in Italian language of the following items with no additional charges:

  • Base Rules
  • Specific Rules
  • Cards (printed on an A4 cut out sheet)



Turning now to 18XX titles, we have some news coming down the pike!



Set in India, from 1836 to 1947, this vast title introduces some new features which will be pervading in the next titles from Sergio Spaggiari and his 19XX games. We hope to get on Kickstarter by the end of 2020.



Taken into account the production problems and the mistakes we have made; we are currently working on an update kit that will be included with the production of our new 1947 title. This kit will not need any kind of sticker to be attached on the items already produced, but there will be new replacement items instead.

Furthermore, this upgrade kit will not have any additional costs for those who have already purchased the original game, in fact there will be the possibility to be shipped together with 1947 or separately with minimal shipping expenses even for those who live outside the EU.



Paolo Russo has created this little gemstone: a fully railroad title for 2-5 players with a duration of 1-2 hours, suitable for everyone, especially for those who want to try these types of games for the first time.

Location: a zoo and the acorns trafficking lead by squirrels!


1843 & 1841 Plus

After the satisfactory outcome of “1883” Manlio Manzini has come quickly back to work on a new project:

  • 1843 is set in Central Italy and in this game, we will see features present in the old title 1841, from Manlio himself, updated and modernized.
  • 1841 Plus reprises its set of the previous edition in Northern Italy, but with its updated and modernized features.

The great news about these two titles is the possibility to merge them in one big game!



As you may know, we managed to subscribe with Richard H. Berg some contracts to publish 5 of his titles. The first of these games, Baroque, have been published on April 2019. We are in touch with Mark Herman as we are discussing on how to go on.

For sure we would like to work on Conquistador 2nd Edition and we are on a new improved edition of Baroque, with better materials (and related upgrade kits for those who had purchased the first edition).

The title The Glory that was Greece at the moment has been abandoned, but it could come back again in the future together with the 2nd Edition of Baroque maybe.

Risorgimento is under a whole re-writing process for a long time, we are still working hard on its system, mainly in implementing and improving many parts of the game.

1813 Glory’s End sadly will not be published: the base material had serious problems starting from a wrong Order of Battle and a defective scale map. About this game we are evaluating its realization, but with a new system.

What is sure at the moment is that Aleph will publish a game about Leipzig.



We are currently working in the realization of two new plastic containers for card decks to insert inside the games boxes.

Their dimensions will allow to easily keeping pouched cards.

These boxes will be also suitable to use as organizers for the wooden and plastic counters of your board games!



At the same time, we are also starting to play testing several games from Italian authors who got our interest.

However, for the moment we are keeping a “ludic” secrecy!


And with this last “secret”, this is all we have for you now and for this 2019! We will come back to you with further updates on our production after the Christmas holidays. See you in 2020!!!!!

We whish you and all your beloved ones Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year!!!

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!
