Reprint of Vegas Showdown and More Coming from Wizards

Posted: September 27, 2012 in Uncategorized

Wizards of the Coast has announced their October releases, which include a reprint of Vegas Showdown.  So far, not much information has surfaced, I only have the game’s byline for info.

New Version of the Classic Bestseller Vegas Sho

wdown™ is a refresh printing of the critically acclaimed board game by the renowned designer Henry Stern. This release has been updated with new art and a shiny holofoil box. The gameplay is true to the original. Players compete for dominance of the Las Vegas Strip by using their resources to build the most popular casino in town.

The original printing was crowned Game of the Year in 2007 by Games magazine. They applauded the design, saying: “The accessible mechanics and random events will appeal to casual players seeking simplicity and an element of chance, but will not discourage serious strategists who relish money management challenges, complex auctions, and different placement tactics on the tense road to victory.” Proven Title Vegas Showdown has stood the test of time as a great game and a new printing has been eagerly awaited by board game enthusiasts. Players familiar with the title, and a brand new audience, will want to pick up this classic. You and a few of your millionaire friends have invested in a plot of land in the heart of Las Vegas. Each of you has one year to plan and build a luxury hotel/casino on the site. Just

to make things interesting, you’ve put a little wager on your venture—when the doors open, the builder of the most famous hotel/casino wins ownership of the entire block. Resources are limited, so you’ll have to outbid each other to get the best contractors to work on your project. With the right combination of restaurants, lounges, gaming rooms, and other attractions—along with some well-timed publicity—the jewel of the Entertainment Capital of the World will be yours.

3-5 Players – Time 75 Minutes – Ages 12+ Vegas Showdown

Other October releases include the reprint of Dungeon, along with the DnD module Elminster’s Forgotten Realms.
