While Portal Games has only recently started to handle game distribution in the US, they have had great success with several games such as Imperial Settlers and Tides of Time. Soon they will be releasing Cry Havoc, but if you want to get it faster you can order it online at their website now.
Today, Portal Games opens pre-orders for the summer release, Cry Havoc, from designers Grant Rodiek, Michał Walczak and Michal Oracz. Cry Havoc is an asymmetric, card driven, area control game for 2 to 4 players. Each player controls one of 4 factions battling for resources on a planet full of riches. As the game develops, the players will customize their factions deck of cards, build powerful structures, and leverage their faction’s unique skills to emerge victorious.
Cry Havoc is an intense area control game with four unique factions and 48 detailed miniatures. As with all our games the factions in Cry Havoc are unique and offer players different strategies and options to earn victory points. Additionally, Cry Havoc introduces a unique battle resolution system called the Battle Objectives Resolution. Every battle is different as the players must decide how to spread their forces among the three Battle Objectives: Region Control, Capture Prisoners, and Attrition.
Pre-orders are now open for a limited time for fans who wish to receive the game early. Shipping options include free pick-up at Gen Con 2016, free shipping for US and Canadian customers, and reduced shipping worldwide. Customers who pre-order will also receive a set of 8 promotional Objective cards to enhance the game. Cry Havoc is for 2 to 4 players, ages 10 or older and takes approximately 60-120 minutes to play. The game includes 84 cards, 1 game board, 1 battle board, 4 faction boards, 48 miniatures, over 170 cardboard tokens, 30 plastic crystals, and 1 rulebook. Cry Havoc will be released at Gen Con 2016 in August and will be available worldwide shortly after. MSRP is $75.00.
