The fall is going to see seven new titles released by Stronghold Game, with four games planned for September:  Fist of Dragonstones: The Tavern Edition, Paper Tales: Beyond the Gates, Calimala, and Fool!; followed by three in October:  Kanban: Driver’s Edition, Fortune, and AuZtralia.

Fist of Dragonstones: The Tavern Edition is an update of the 2002 Days of Wonder bidding game.  The setting has been shifted to Stronghold’s Dragon & Flagon setting, and the gameplay has been improved to quicken play, through the introduction of a new "King’s Favor" mechanic.  The game comes with 123 coins, 1 King’s Favor token, 40 stones, 6 dice, 6 player screens, 75 cards, and 1 cloth bag.  MSRP is $49.95.

The first expansion for the game Paper Tales (see "‘Steamrollers,’ ‘Gold Fever,’ and ‘Paper Tales’"), Beyond the Gates adds 20 units and 6 buildings to the game for increased variability, with different buildings available from game to game.  The expansion also increases the maximum player count to seven and includes a solo mode.  Includes 99 cards, 6 tokens, and 7 tiles.  MSRP is $29.95.

In Calimala, the players are members of the cloth merchants guild in the Republic of Florence.  They must produce and trade cloth, gaining prestige by trading in foreign markets, and competing to sponsor the creature of art and architecture in the city.  This game has more than 300 wooden pieces, 1 game board, 5 player mats, 38 tiles, and 55 cards.  MSRP is $64.95.

Rounding out the September releases is Friedemann Friese’s Fool!, a re-release of the 1995 German game Foppen.  In this trick-taking game, players try to score points while being the first to get rid of their hand of cards and trying to avoid being the "fool" by playing the lowest value card in a trick.  Comes with 90 cards and 2 discs.  MSRP is $14.95.

In October, Stronghold will release Kanban: Driver’s Edition, a limited run version of 2014’s Kanban: Automotive Revolution (see "‘Panamax’ & ‘Kanban: Automotive Revolution’"), in which players try to impress the director of an automotive factory by efficiently managing their resources.  This edition features 40 upgraded wooden car tokens, a double-sided game board, and optional rules for a "nice" director.  MSRP is $69.95.

The fourth in Friese’s Fast Forward series (see "Stronghold Teams With 2F-Spiele for New Game Series"), Fortune is a card game inspired by slot machines, in which players try to score the right combination of bonus points to win.  Like other games in the series, the rules are revealed as the game is played, requiring 10 or more plays to reveal every feature of the system.  Includes 90 oversized cards.  MSRP is $19.95.

Lastly, AuZtralia is a Martin Wallace design set in the same world as Neil Gaiman’s A Study in Emerald (see"Martin Wallace’s ‘Study in Emerald’ 2E"), combining the Lovecraftian mythos with the exploration of Australia.  Players race to explore and develop the Outback before the Old Ones awaken and advance their horrific schemes.  Includes 1 double-sided game board, 4 players boards, 103 wooden tokens, 195 other tokens, 157 plastic resources, 121 cards, 88 tiles, and a player aid.  MSRP is $69.95.

Stronghold has also announced a new expansion for the popular Terraforming Mars game (see "'Terraforming Mars: Colonies'") and a new Uwe Rosenberg game (see "Creator of 'Agricola' Completes Puzzle Game Trilogy") for fall release.
