New from Osprey Publishing! The King is Dead, They Come Unseen and Secret Santa!

Street Date: September 22nd!
The King is Dead
$24.95 SRP

The King Is Dead is a board game of politics and power struggles set in Britain in the chaotic period following the death of King Arthur. For the good of the country, a leader must unite the Scots, Welsh, and Romano-British - not by conquest but by diplomacy.

Players are members of King Arthur's court. Whether a loyal knight, a scheming lord, or an ambitious noblewoman, you all have one thing in common: power. As prospective leaders, each player uses their power to benefit the factions, gaining influence among their ranks. The player with the greatest influence over the most powerful faction is crowned the new ruler of Britain.

Work behind the scenes to marshal your resources to gain power and influence. You owe loyalty only to yourself and treachery is part of the game. Stake your claim to the crown but remember: it’s not the power you wield that defines a great leader, it’s how you use it.

They Come Unseen
$49.95 SRP

Submarines and surface fleets battle for dominance of the seas! One team must use submarines to sneak troops into enemy ports and destroy vital strategic targets, while the other team deploys a surface fleet to hunt down the subs and protect their crucial supply lines.

Designed by retired Royal Navy submarine commander, Andrew Benford, and developed while on patrol, They Come Unseen is an asymmetrical strategy game of bluff and deception that uses two boards, one for action on the surface, seen by both players, and one for movement underwater, only seen by the submarine commanders.

The game also comes with specially designed control panels to help each player track vital information such as fuel, ammunition and current cruising depth.

Secret Santa

At Christmas, it’s important to remember that it’s better to give gifts than to receive them. But what’s better than that, is to be the best gift-giver of them all. Be the first player to give away all your presents to win!

Just like in real life good presents are rare but a big stack of loot is always exciting. Some gifts trump others but mix things up with Santa’s Elves and Christmas Carol cards. Give away all of your Gold Rings, but whatever you do, don’t get stuck with the Fruitcake!
