Brick Party wins Creative Child Game of the Year Award

San Diego, CA (Nov. 28th, 2016)  – Renegade Game Studios is proud to announce that the upcoming new brick building game, Brick Party, has be selected by Creative Child Magazine as the Game of the Year in the Builder/Construction Games category. Brick Party is available at local hobby stores, Barnes & Noble, and online.  

Brick Party is a very simple game, allowing players to jump right in. Players work in teams using plastic building blocks to create designated shapes. However, only one player can see the shape while the other uses the blocks to build it. Communication is key as the players work together. As a great twist, each round, one communication or dexterity tool is removed. For example, the builders may have to build without using their thumbs, or architects may be blindfolded. Every play puts the participants in comical and memorable situations.

“There are very few games that teach communication skills better than Brick Party. Everyone has played with plastic building blocks so we already have an ingrained idea of what to do with them. Brick Party builds on that shared experience and encourages players to create something new together. It’s hard but very rewarding” explains Sara Erickson, Director of Sales and Marketing for Renegade Game Studios.  

Brick Party is available in North America. In Europe, it was released in 2015 and has been widely successful. English is the most recent localization. Information about the awards can be found here. 

Honshu coming to North America

Renegade Game Studios and Lautapelit.fi to release
Honshu in North America

San Diego, CA (Nov. 17th, 2016) — Renegade Game Studios™, the premier publisher of original games has partnered with Lautapelit.fi, a leading Finnish publishing company, to release a Honshu, a city building card game, in North America. 

After a successful launch at Internationale Spieltage in Essen, there has been increasing demand for the title in the American market. 

Honshu is a map-building card game set in feudal Japan. Players are lords and ladies of noble houses seeking new lands and opportunities for fame and fortune.

One game of Honshu lasts twelve rounds, and each round is divided into two phases. First, map cards are played in a trick, and the player who played the highest valued card gets to pick first from those cards played. Then the players use the map cards picked to expand their personal maps. Each player must expand their personal maps to maximize their scoring possibilities. Manipulating your position in the player order is crucial for mastering Honshu.
 
"We are always on the lookout for games that are incredibly easy to learn but offer a deep and fulfilling experience. Honshu fits this description perfectly. "  says Renegade President Scott Gaeta.  "We are excited to bring this elegant game to our fans in North America thanks to the wonderful team at Lautapelit.fi."

Look for Honshu at friendly local game stores in North America and online.  Honshu takes about 30-40 minutes to play and is for 2-5 players ages 8+.
