Ares Games Posts Gen Con Preview

Gen Con is ridiculously close. Much of the show is already on its way to Indianapolis (or, at least, I hope it is for all the shipping managers out there). Ares Games will be in attendance and they've got plenty they want to show off, including their new Battlestar Galactica Starship Battles game. But that's hardly all. Check out the preview they posted so you can know what to be excited for.

From the announcement:

Ares Games will present for the first time at Gen Con 2018 (Booth #335, August 2-5, Indianapolis) a preview of the upcoming Battlestar Galactica – Starship Battles, miniature game. Based on the Battlestar Galactica™ TV series, the game is scheduled to be available at the end of 2018. At the show, visitors will also be able to play with the upcoming Wings of Glory – Tripods & Triplanes.

In addition to these previews, new games also release at the show: the board game of galactic conquest Master of the Galaxy and new expansions for the Sword & Sorcery line – the Hero Packs Krogham and Samyria and the third campaign set, Darkness Falls.

Players will also have a chance to take a look at the new expansion for This War of Mine: the Board Game – Tales from the Ruined City (scheduled to release in November 2018), and to play recent releases with the assistance of the Ares demo team: the epic strategy game Hannibal & Hamilcar: Rome vs Carthage; the thrilling card game Monsters vs. Heroes – Victorian Nightmares; two new games published by Pendragon and exclusively distributed in North America by Ares – Hexemonia and Waterloo: Enemy Mistakes.

At Ares’ booth, visitors will find several exclusive promo items offered together with purchases at the booth, including the alternate “Frodo” promo card for Hunt for the Ring, the mini-expansion “TV Set" for This War of Mine: the Board Game, the promo pack “Chaos in Hadria" for Age of Thieves, the promo cards “Necronomicon” and "H.P. Lovecraft" for Stay Away, and “Bubi” for Last Friday.
