At Gen Con, Passport Games was showing off two upcoming games co-produced with Stratelibri: Kingsport Festival and Provincia Romana. Both are planned for mid-to-late October release.
Richard Dracass, Chief Business Officer at Passport Game Studios, described Kingsport Festival as "Kingsburg meets Lovecraft" with "that same mechanic that everyone loves from that game." Kingsburg was nominated for several game awards, including an Origins award in 2008 (see "Origins Awards Finalists Announced"). The game is designed by Andrea Chiarvesio (Kingsburg, Arcanum) and Gianluca Santopietro (Letters from Whitechapel). In this horror game, players take the villainous role of cult leaders, out to dominate the city. Players need to reserve their sanity, overcome the investigators out to stop the cults, and overcome unexpected events.
The box contains 20 Elder God sheets, 16 building tiles, 5 player tokens, 110 cards,165 wooden pieces (6 scoring markers, 79 resource markers, 65 control cubes, 15 dice), a game board and rulebook. The game is for 3-5 players, ages 13 and up, and plays in 90 minutes. MSRP is $60.00.
