Ken Hodkinson has announced a new edition of the strategy war game Bin'Fa--The Tao of War, with plans to launch the game in March at the GAMA trade show (see "2015 GAMA Trade Show"). The game will be funded by a Kickstarter campaign in November.
The game was initially developed by Hodkinson in the late 1970s, based on Sun Tzu’s Art of War. Avalon Hill published a version of the game, Hexagony, with development changes by Alan Moon. The game never caught on, and Avalon Hill relinquished the copyright in 1986. Hodkinson has continued to develop the game since then, releasing various versions over the years, including the Seacoast Tube Edition in 2000.
The game is for 2 -6 players, ages 12 and up, and plays in 20 minutes to 2 hours. MSRP is $37.95. The Kickstarter, which will launch this month, has a retailer backer level for six copies of the game at trade discount.
