Passport Reveals 2018 Plans
Posted by William Niebling on March 26, 2018 @ 3:16 pm CT
The first two games will be produced in partnership with ThunderGryph:
Intended for serious board game players, Dead Man’s Doubloons offers the breadth of classic pirate lore: ship-to-ship combat, pillaging and looting, buried treasure, and haunted ghost ships. Each player commands a ship and crew, sailing around a pirate island using a card-based programed movement mechanic in pursuit of other ships while their captains race to the top of the island to claim a buried treasure. Should a player’s ship be sunk, it returns to play as a ghost ship, until the crew can pay enough cursed gold to be released back into the land of the living.
Dead Man’s Doubloons was created by Jason Miceli for 2 to 6 players, ages 10 and up, and takes about 45 minutes to play. MSRP is $50.00.
Designed by Fel Barros and Warny Marcano (the duo behind Space Cantina), Pot de Vin can be played by 3 to 6 players, ages 14 and up, and takes a little more than half an hour. MSRP is $20.00.
Smiths of Winterforge is intended for 2 to 5 players, ages 13 and up, and takes 90 to 120 minutes. Crafted by the trio of Jennah Grimsey, Dylan Shearer, and Aaron Sparke, this game is MSRP $60.00.
The creation of Eric and Cecilia Hyland, Fleecing Olympus is designed for 2 to 6 players, ages 14 and up, and plays in about half an hour. MSRP is $25.00.

Passport began partnering with Rule & Make and ThunderGryph games last year (see “Passport to Distribute Rule & Make Games,” and “Passport Partners With Thundergryph”). Starting in December, the company’s games have been offered exclusively through Passport’s parent company, GTS Distribution (see “Passport Games Goes Exclusive”).
