New company Titanic Games (see 'Four Game Industry Vets Launch Titanic') has scheduled its first two board game releases. Its first game, Kill Doctor Lucky, will be released in October ($34.95 MSRP).
Titanic's Kill Doctor Lucky is a full-color version of Cheapass Games' award-winning board game of the same name. A few rules have been added, but players have the same goal--to see which player can kill the old doctor first.

Retailers that preorder through their distributors will receive a limited edition metal miniature of Dr. Lucky to replace the black pawn that comes with the game.
