Car Wars – Sixth Edition is coming to your table through Gnome Games!

Car Wars 6th Edition at Gnome Games

Gnome Games is backing Car Wars Sixth Edition!

Steve Jackson Games is bringing back Car Wars Sixth Edition and you can reserve your copy at Gnome Games or right here today!

North America, A.D. 2069. It’s a new American frontier. The collapse of the U.S. government plunged the country back into the good old days — days of wilderness lawlessness, banditry, regional dictators, and of the men and women who combat them. Modern-day knights and gunslingers are in demand; but the automobile has replaced the horse, and the machine-gun and recoilless rifle have made the sword and Winchester obsolete.

Welcome to 2069. It’s a rough world, but it’s the only one around . . .

Car Wars Sixth Edition

Put the pedal to the metal and fire up the weapons systems – Car Wars Sixth Edition is going to be a big one! Gnome Games is backing the new, faster, streamlined edition of Car Wars, which will include detailed “hot wheels sized” plastic car models. So, Gaslands players, you are going to want to look at this as well! The new Car Wars game was designed to put you in the driver’s seat and into the action within moments of opening the game box. Hit the link and just see what’s all been included already!

Here’s what you need to know about reserving a copy of Car Wars 6th Edition through Gnome Games

  • Gnome Games will match the Kickstarter pricing.
  • We may have to factor in some shipping costs, but if so, they will very likely be lower than if you back directly.
  • Gnome Games will get all the “Double Ace” stretch goals.
  • We can you get all the add-ons! We will coordinate this once the Kickstarter fulfillment process starts
  • You don’t need to prepay anything other than a $5 deposit that is fully refundable if Steve Jackson Games doesn’t deliver the Kickstarter.  You will pay the remaining balance plus applicable sales tax when you pick your copy up at any Gnome Games store.
  • If you’d like to back through us or reserve a copy, just stop in any Gnome Games store OR back it right here!
  • Expected arrival is November 2020, but that date may change based on manufacturing. We’ll keep you posted as Steve Jackson Games provides us with details.

Trogdor the Burninator arrives later this fall!

Trogdor the Burninator arrives at the Gnome In October – Preorder today!

Trogdor! The Board Game – A game of Cooperative Burnination and Majesty!

In the kingdom of Peasantry, the beefy-armed dragon Trogdor the Burninator has one goal: the total destruction of the countryside! Players take on the roles of the Keepers of Trogdor, mysterious acolytes of the Burninator who use their unique abilities and items to help Trogdor in his destructive quest. Burninate the countryside and its cottages by flipping them to their flaming side! Chomp peasants for health or fry them for fun! Do all this while avoiding knights and archers and majesty shall be yours! Er… shall be Trogdor’s… more accurately.

Features:

  • Screen Printed Wooden Meeples
  • Collectible Quality Painted Plastic Miniatures (play with the meeples, put the minis on the shelf!)
  • Double-Sided Flippable Map Tiles

Homestar Runner will be sending Trogdor! The Board Game, a cooperative board game to Gnome Games in October!

This game is inspired by the Trogdor, the Burninator character from Homestar Runner’s Strong Bad web cartoon series.

Trogdor! The Board Game is a cooperative board game that takes place in the land of Peasantry where players become the Keepers of Trogdor. Their goal is to use various action and item cards to help Trogdor work his way around a 25-tile board, and turn each countryside tile to its “burninated” side. However, the peasants aren’t going to take Trogdor’s assault lying down. They fight back by sending knights and archers after Trogdor to impede his progress.

Players take their turns controlling Trogdor. On their turn, they can use action points to bestow action and item cards on Trogdor so he can more optimally burn obstacles, eat peasants, and flip tiles. The game continues until the players either win by flipping all of the countryside tiles to their ‘burninated’ side, or lose when Trogdor’s health runs out before the tiles are all flipped.

Trogdor! The Board Game is for one to six players, ages 14 and up, and plays in 45 minutes. It will retail for $60.00.

Preorder Trogdor! online today and the Gnomes will have it waiting for you at your favorite Gnome Games store!

Preorder Trogdor the Board Game Online before October 5th for just $54.99 and we’ll let you know when it’s in at your favorite Gnome Games store!
