"Yesterday a friend gave Chrononauts to me as a gift
and I love the game. Although I'm not a history buff I am fascinated
by time travel as a writer, a physics buff and someone who likes
exploring twisted and elaborate logical puzzles, like those that
come up from modifying history. I want to thank you for making
this game, as well as Fluxx which is one of the most entertaining
games ever produced." -- email from a fan
Well, it's 1776 and... no wait, it's 2004! We've been up to
our nostrils in playtesting and prepress for Early
American Chrononauts, and sometimes we lose track. But finally
EAC is off to the printer, and it is a thing of beauty indeed.
A worthy sequel to the original, with fun new stuff, and a whole
new (older) century.
Now it's time to focus on promotion and pre-orders... and
catching up on everything else that hasn't been getting done
since we have been focusing so hard on EAC art deadlines. Instead
of trying to think of something else to write about in this update,
we offer you some more images from the game!
The rules are a single sheet (still being refined), folded
down to card size - instead of a tiny little booklet...
|Although the game is on schedule for it's July
4th release in game stores (and the pre-release at the Origins
game fair), the POP display which will contain 3 of each version
of the game will not be out until later this fall... we didn't
really need to reprint the original version yet, and cash flow
dictated that we put off the display for a few months.
|What would have happened if
the Boston Tea Party had been prevented or if Paul Revere's midnight
riders had been silenced? What if the USA had failed to purchase
Louisiana or if Washington DC hadn't been burned by the British?
What if the Battle of New Orleans had been called off or if the
Alamo had been abandoned and razed before the Mexican army surrounded
it? What if Maryland had joined the Confederacy... would the
South have won the Civil War? All of these questions and many
more will be answered when you play Early
Please call your
local game store today and ask them to make sure they have
EAC on order from their favorite distributor!
|Thank you for looking forward to playing our new game!
