Tasty Minstrel Games plans an aggressive release schedule for the next few months, announcing four more new releases:  Ars Alchimia, The Oracle of Delphi, Amun-Re, and At the Gates of Loyang.

Scheduled for November release, Kuro’s (Rent a Hero, The Ravens of Thri Sahashri) Ars Alchimia is a game of industrial alchemy.  Players compete to fill orders by transmuting resources in an alchemy factory.  Ars Alchimia comes with 1 game board, 4 player boards, 76 cards, 20 wooden cubes, 80 wooden workers, and 8 forges.  For 3 to 4 players, ages 14 and up, playing time about one hour.  MSRP is $34.95.

Also appearing in November is The Oracle of Delphi, designed by Stefan Feld (The Castles of Burgundy, Trajan), in which players compete for the favor of the Zeus by completing a dozen Herculean tasks, collecting offerings for the temples, or defeating monsters scattered across the Greek Islands.  The Oracle of Delphi includes 12 game board tiles, 108 smaller tiles, 1 Zeus figure, 4 shrines, 4 ships, and 12 Oracle dice.  This game is designed for 2 to 4 players, ages 14 and up, and plays in about 90 minutes.  MSRP is $59.95.

Reiner Knizia’s classic bidding game Amun-Re will return in a new Tasty Minstrel version in December or January.  Originally released in 2003, this game combines auction mechanics with area control as players compete to control the Nile Valley and ultimately build the Great Pyramid.  Includes 1 game board, game cards, pyramid stones, pyramid figures, and Egyptian-style meeples.  For 3 to 5 players, ages 14 and up, and plays in about 90 minutes.  MSRP is $69.95.

Rounding out the new releases will be At the Gates of Loyang, a new edition of Uwe Rosenberg’s 2009 hit scheduled for early 2017.  Players must advance their farmers along the “Path of Prosperity” by investing money, which must be taken from other investments.  At the Gates of Loyang supports 1 to 4 players, ages 14 and up, and plays in one to two hours.  MSRP is $59.95.

The four new titles join two previously announced games releasing in the next two months:  Orleans Invasion in October and Ponzi Scheme, delayed until November (see “‘Ponzi Scheme’ and ‘Orleans Invasion’”).
