Get Ready to Harvest Wendake this August!

San Diego, CA (April 30, 2018) — Renegade Game Studios™ is excited to announce the upcoming release of Wendake a unique action selection and resource management game designed by Danilo Sabia. Originally published in Italy and released at Essen in 2017 through Placentia Games and Post Scriptum, Wendake will now be available to North American fans through this continued partnership.

Designer: Danilo Sabia

Artist: Alan D'Amico & Paolo Vallerga

"Wendake" is the name that the Wyandot People use for their traditional territory. This population, also known as the Huron Nation, lived in the Great Lakes region together with the Iroquois, Shawnee, Potomac, Seneca, and many others. In this game, you explore the traditions and everyday life of these tribes during the 1756-1763 period when the Seven Years War between the French and the English took place in these territories.

But this white man's war is really only a marginal aspect of the game; the focus is on life in the Native villages, fields, and forests. In this game, you won't find the traditional teepees since those were used by southwestern tribes who moved their camps to follow the herds of buffalo. The Natives of the Great Lakes were sedentary, living in long houses. The women farmed beans, corn, and pumpkins, while men hunted beavers in the forests, mainly to sell their pelts as leather.

In the game Wendake, you are placed in the shoes of a chief of a Native American tribe. You have to manage all of the most important aspects of their lives, earning points on the economic, military, ritual, and mask tracks.

The core of the game is the action selection mechanism: You have the opportunity to choose better and better actions over seven game rounds, and the winner will be the player who can find the best combinations of actions and use them to lead their tribe to prosperity.

In war-torn feudal Japan, the soldiers are restless. The endless battles, betrayals, and broken promises have the soldiers questioning where their loyalties lie. Meanwhile, the daimyo are strategizing, marshaling their troops, and erecting strongholds to bolster the strength of their armies, all in pursuit of honor and ultimate victory.
In Gunkimono, players take on the roles of these daimyo, plotting their military advances across the countryside. Each new squad of troops yields victory points, but you may decide to forego these points and save up for your stronghold instead. All the while, you need to keep an eye on your opponents, so that their forces do not grow too large and expand at your expense.

Ex Libris and Raiders of the North Sea Win Mensa Select Awards

San Diego, CA (Apr. 22nd, 2018) – Renegade Game Studios is proud to announce that Ex Libris and Raiders of the North Sea have been awarded the prestigious Mensa Select Award during the Mensa Mind Games event this weekend. Each year, only five games are chosen as the top games of the year. The Mind Games competition has been held annually since 1990. This is the 5th year in a row that a game in Renegade’s catalog has received this distinction.

In Ex Libris, you are a collector of rare and valuable books in a thriving fantasy town. The Mayor has just announced a new seat in the Village Council, Grand Librarian. The prestigious and lucrative position will be awarded to the citizen with the most extraordinary library! To outshine your competition, you’ll need to expand your personal library by sending your trusty assistants out into the village to find the most impressive tomes. You’ll need shrewd planning, cunning tactics, and perhaps a little magic to surpass your opponents and become Grand Librarian!

Designed by Adam P. McIver, Ex Libris was previewed at Gen Con 50 and then released in October 2017. With delightful art from Jacqui Davis, Ex Libris has been an astonishing success and was sold out upcoming release. The English language reprint is currently available through friendly local game stores worldwide. Localization projects to translate Ex Libris are underway for a variety of regionally specific languages.

Raiders of the North Sea is set in the central years of the Viking Age. As Viking warriors, players seek to impress the Chieftain by raiding unsuspecting settlements. Players will need to assemble a crew, collect provisions and journey north to plunder gold, iron and livestock. There is glory to be found in battle, even at the hands of the Valkyrie. So, gather your warriors, it’s raiding season!

The North Sea Trilogy covers the Viking era chronologically with mechanically different games for each time frame. Shipwrights of the North Sea, Raiders of the North Sea, and Explorers of the North Sea follow the expansion of the Vikings as they reached far past their homeland. While they are all tied together by theme and art from the talented Mihajlo Dimitrievski (also known as The Mico), each game stands alone. Raiders of the North Sea also has two expansions, Fields of Fame and Hall of Heroes, adding more options and challenges to the game.

Designed by Shem Phillips of Garphill Games, Raiders of the North Sea is co-published with Renegade Game Studios in English and is available in a wide variety of languages worldwide. In 2017, it received a nomination for the Kennerspiel des Jahres Award, a prestigious German award for enthusiast games.
