Studio Tomahawk and Wargames Foundry will release Congo - Adventures in the Heart of Africa, a fantasized historical miniatures game this fall.

Studio Tomahawk is the creator of SAGA, Muskets & Tomahawks, and Jugula; and Wargames Foundry is run by Bryan Ansell, co-designer of Warhammer Fantasy Battle and one-time owner and CEO of Games Workshop.

Congo is an adventure game which takes place in an unexplored, fantasized, enchanted Africa as recalled by newspapers at the end of the 19th Century.  Players may choose to mount a scientific expedition, become leader of a ferocious tribe, head a group of slave traffickers from Zanzibar, or take control of an Azandes warband trying to defend their way of life.

Players pick one of four factions (The White Men Expeditions, The Sultanate of Zanzibar, The African Kingdoms, The Forest Tribes) which each consist of around 30 figures and play through the eight adventures in the Rulebook, which is sold separately. The rulebook includes a deck of 44 cards, punch out sheet of tokens and measuring sticks, 4 double-sided The Bulletin sheets (adventures), a double-sided dangerous terrain cardboard sheet and the 108-page hardcover rulebook.  MSRP has not been announced.
