Kids On Bikes takes the Gold ENnie Medal from Gen Con 2019!
A storm has destroyed a small coastal village! Help them rebuild, while monitoring the health of the reef and the magical Aquicorns. Find the right balance to grow the village and restore the reef ecosystem!
When Lana and her father return to their seaside hometown to help clear the debris of a big storm, Lana remembers how much she’s missed the ocean—and the strong, reassuring presence of her aunt. As Lana explores the familiar beach, she discovers something incredible: a colony of Aquicorns, small magical seahorse-like creatures that live in the coral reef.
Based on The Aquicorn Cove, a graphic novel by Eisner award-winning artist and writer Katie O'Neil and published by Oni Press, The Aquicorn Cove Board Game is a cooperative game perfect for family game night.
In the game, players take on the roles of members of a small fishing village struggling to survive while maintaining a balance with the natural world. To win, the villagers must feed and grow their village, and help restore the health of the reef and aquatic ecosystem. The villagers are fortunate, though, and the waters of their cove are home to the beautiful and benevolent Aquicorns, as well as the wondrous reef guardian Aure, who can help them both to understand the impact humans are having on the environment, and to save the village.
Aquicorn Cove The Board Game is designed for 2-4 cooperating conservationists aged 10+ for 30-60 min.

We're so thrilled to announce that we're once again working with Mandy and Jordan Goodard, designers of the award-winning game Lotus, to create a new 19th century horror-inspired game for release in October - just in time for Halloween!
You have finally set out to find the truth. You’ve heard the rumors of ancient runes and the lost pages of a scattered tome that tell of ancient and evil monstrosities; calling for their return. You’ve heard tales of those who came before you in this search losing grip on their sanity as they grew nearer to the truth. As you press on you can’t help but notice that you feel less attached to reality yourself. Some days you lose track of time and can’t account for hours of the day. The whispers of secret gates to another world are growing stronger, and while no one knows who is building them... You have a dreadful hunch...
Could you be the hidden architect of the Gates of Delirium?
In Gates of Delirium, players will have a hand of split action cards: one side sane, and the other insane. Every round, one player will decide if it is a sane or insane round, and all players must play that side of their cards. During sane rounds, players will be searching for maps and lost pages to a secret tome, while assigning investigators to help them in their cause. During insane rounds, players collect ancient runes and work to build Gates to release the monstrosities that their sane selves have been trying so hard to understand and prevent. Earn the most victory points by the time the last monstrosity is released to be the winner in Gates of Delirium.
The sequel to critically-lauded Architects of the West Kingdom is coming in October of this year!
If you're a fan of the North Sea Trilogy or Architects of the West Kingdom, we've got news for you: Paladins of the West Kingdom is coming in just a few short months!
Paladins of the West Kingdom is set at a turbulent time of West Francia's story, circa 900 AD. Despite recent efforts to develop the city, outlying townships are still under threat from outsiders. Saracens scout the borders, while Vikings plunder wealth and livestock. Even the Byzantines from the east have shown their darker side. As noble men and women, players must gather workers from the city to defend against enemies, build fortifications and spread faith throughout the land. Fortunately you are not alone. In his great wisdom, the King has sent his finest knights to help aid in our efforts. So ready the horses and sharpen the swords. The Paladins are approaching.
The aim of Paladins of the West Kingdom is to be the player with the most victory points (VP) at game's end. Points are gained by building outposts and fortifications, commissioning monks and confronting outsiders. Each round, players will enlist the help of a specific Paladin and gather workers to carry out tasks. As the game progresses, players will slowly increase their faith, strength and influence. Not only will these affect their final score, but they will also determine the significance of their actions. The game is concluded at the end of the seventh round.
Paladins of the West Kingdom plays 1-4 players aged 12+ in 90-120 minutes.

Fans of accessible, adorable, real-time games are loving Bubble Tea, which is releasing to a friendly local game store near you today! We sold out of the game at both UK Games Expo and Origins Game Fair, and this game is sure to be another delightful game you’ll pull out time and again to play with your family and friends of all ages.
Here’s what some gamers have said about Bubble Tea!
Bubble Tea is so fun, and I just love, love, love the theme! Seeing a mainstream board game company create a game about a possibly niche food theme — but one that’s been a major part of my life — just warms my heart. Bubble Tea is perfect to bust out with your friends at the boba cafe or when you need a quick filler for up to five people.
—Meeple Lady, “Shaken Boba, Not Stirred”
Overall, I think Bubble Tea is pretty great! It’s nice to have a go-to light real-time game that’s not the thinkiest. It’s not very stressful partially because it plays so quickly, which I appreciate, and it’s got a bright, vibrant theme, which looks great on the table. Plus, it’s fundamentally kind of a silly game, and I always appreciate that! I’m glad Renegade brought it over for wider distribution; I’ve been looking forward to this one for a while, and I’m pleased to see that it didn’t disappoint.
—Eric Yuko, What’s Eric Playing

Remember when we announced the special Renegade Game Studi-Os?
Well as it turns out, our production facility that makes games wasn’t really capable of making cereal. It was a bummer, because we had already gone ahead and manufactured cereal boxes.
But all is not lost! We decided to fill cereal boxes with fantastic t-shirts, so gamers everywhere could proudly show their love of games and sugary breakfast treats!
These fantastic shirts will come packaged in cereal boxes, for easy transport and storage. Keep it in your kitchen cupboard, your gaming shelf, or your bedroom closet - the choice is yours!
These are Gen Con exclusive shirts with full color prints, come in unisex and ladies cuts from sizes small to 3XL, and are 100% cotton.
Gen Con is just around the corner! We'll have a number of exciting titles available for release, including some early release titles (like Terror Below, Bargain Quest, Time Chase, ArtSee, and Teens in Space) as well as various convention-exclusive items.
Avoid trying to crowds and rush to the exhibitor hall! You can pre-order your games for pickup from the Renegade Events Rooms (#139 - look for the giant W.O.R.M.) and avoid the lineups and hassle.
