New from Game Salute!

Releasing in August!

Penny Arcade: Paint the Line
$ 30.00 SRP

In 1976, as the specter of nuclear war loomed worldwide, the UN Security Council introduced Resolution 501. Known as the Table-Tennis Accords, it decreed that all conflict between nations be resolved through the dialect of Ping-Pong. When Chinese terrorists struck down the US Table Tennis Team in 1979, a rag-tag band of students was forced to play in their stead. Lead by rivals Johnathan Gabriel and Tycho Brahe, they were victorious – but not unharmed. Now, in 1984, the Russian Bear has begun to stir. In times like these, America needs men whose grip is sure. Men who play the entire table.

Rumble in the House
$ 20.00 SRP

Rumble in the House is a very simple bluffing and guessing game for the whole family. The twelve characters start in the house. Each player receives two secret character tokens. In turn, players will move one of the characters inside the house, or pick a victim and eliminate it from the game. The player who keeps his secret characters the longest in the house shall win the round. During play, the other player's moves provide clues to their identity, unless of course they bluffed by moving other characters on purpose... Everyone tries to identify and expel the other player's characters while keeping their own safe.

Dragon Rage
$ 75.00 SRP

Dragon Rage is an introductory wargame set in a fantasy world. Dragons and other monsters attack walled cities, trying to destroy as much of the city building as they can while the city garrison fights back. Controls the invading monsters or the city forces in a merciless struggle! The basic game scenario has two Dragons attacking the seaside city of Esirien. The defender controls a small militia that defends the city. All troops are represented by counters on the game board's hex grid. During each game turn, each player may move some or all his units and then fight the enemies within attack range. The humans have a local hero which has special powers, as well as a wizard that can cast spells. The dragons are very resilient and can breathe fire, destructing men and buildings in a blazing roar. Combat is resolved trough a dice roll on a combat resolution table, cross-referencing the attacking and defending unit's strength. Dragon Rage is a good introduction to the world of wargames : There are few units on both sides, making the game simple to learn and fast-paced. It will introduce you to key wargaming concepts such as tactical movement on an hexagon grid, units statistics printed on the counters, use of a combat resolution table, attack-to-defense ratios, terrain modifiers, reinforcements, and special abilities.
