Cover of Kiek 20 years of Splotter
KIEK 20 years of Splotter
€20.00 Inc VAT

This year, 2017, marks the 20th birthday of Splotter as a company. We started in 1997 by going to the Essen games fair, not knowing what to expect. We had 20 handmade copies each of 3 simple games, in videoboxes. We sold about half of them. Since then, we have come a long way! We wanted to celebrate this history somehow with our fans. We considered printing T-shirts or making a book about our history, but we felt a game to be more appropriate!

KIEK, 20 years of Splotter is a special anniversary edition of the game KIEK. Kiek was originally developed in 1997 and published in 1998. As a game, it is much, much simpler than what we design these days. We are republishing it as a fan edition to celebrate Splotter's 20th anniversary.

KIEK, 20 years of Splotter features pictures of our games, prototypes and prizes made by our long-time friend, game photographer Henk Rolleman; in addition, we have added a number of historical photo's from Splotter's past. Although it is playable as a game, it's mostly fun if you've been following Splotter for a while. As we feel this is more a fan item than a Splotter game, we have printed a very limited quantity only.

The game was announced as a special surprise at Essen 2017. And yes, the box has a flavour text:

The key turns slowly in the heavy door. The lady leading the way lowers her voice: "We are now about to enter the Splotter vault. It contains all the games they published in the past 20 years; those they didn't; prototypes, game pieces, demo games. Please be very careful, because everything is exactly where it needs to be.". The door opens, and it reveals.... "Joris!!!" (she is shouting now), "you promised to clean up all this old Splotter junk!". Everything is everywhere... can you help to sort out 20 years of Splotter history?

KIEK, 20 years of Splotter is a re-edition of a game we published in 1998 (the second year of Splotter). It is also a set of 60 pictures that celebrate our Splotter years, the people who make and made Splotter to what it is now, and of course, all of our games. Be aware thatKiek is a completely different type of game from the ones that we publish today: it is short and simple. We invite you to see it more as a Splotter memorabilium than as a Splotter game. Or, if you like our set of rules, use them with your own set of pictures!

If you want to combine this order with an existing order, please note all Antiquities are already underway; if you want to combine with an existing FCM order, please order this game separately first and then email us (so you do not lose your place in the queue, in case that becomes relevant).

PRE-ORDER for 2018 print

Food Chain Magnate is our 2015 release. We printed 6 print runs in 2015-2016. It is currently sold out! But... we will be reprinting again. The 7th print will be identical to the previous print runs. We expect it to be available early 2018. So please note that this is a PRE-ORDER

Here's the flavour text for more information. Visit boardgamegeek.com for details and reviews.

"Lemonade? They want lemonade? What is the world coming to? I want commercials for burgers on all channels, every 15 minutes. We are the Home of the Original Burger, not a hippie health haven. And place a billboard next to that new house on the corner. I want them craving beer every second they sit in their posh new garden." The new management trainee trembles in front of the CEO and tries to politely point out that... "How do you mean, we don't have enough staff? The HR director reports to you. Hire more people! Train them! But whatever you do, don't pay them any real wages. I did not go into business to become poor. And fire that discount manager, she is only costing me money. From now on, we'll sell gourmet burgers. Same crap, double the price. Get my marketing director in here!"

Food Chain Magnate is a heavy strategy game about building a fast food chain. The focus is on building your company using a card-driven (human) resource management system. Players compete on a variable city map through purchasing, marketing and sales, and on a job market for key staff members. The game can be played by 2-5 serious gamers in 2-4 hours.

Antiquity
€75.00 Inc VAT
SOLD OUT

2017 REPRINT SOLD OUT

We have reprinted Antiquity this year with some significant updates to the materials, including:
- A smaller box!; dimensions are the same as the standard Splotter box, but 50% deeper to fit all the materials. The picture still shows the old box!
- The wooden pieces, which were simple cubes in past editions, have been redesigned to fit the theme
- Easy-to-handle plastic chits for pollution instead of cardboard tokens
- Harbours are now hex-sized rather than rectangles
- Some of the goods tokens which were hard to distinguish have been recoloured
- Better quality cardboard
- Better quality cutting

See our facebook page for pictures!

The reprint has been shipped 23-25 october 2017. It is also sold out (28 October 2017). It turns out the game is much heavier than before; if you pre-ordered, you are in luck and will pay transport according to the original weight.

Antiquity was first published in 2004 and reprinted in 2005, 2011, 2012 and 2017. Here's the original introduction:

"These fields no longer yield grain the way they used to," complains the farmer. "We should settle new lands before our food runs out. Why don't we start farming olives, like our neighbours?". The cart-driver nods: "Ever since them city folks started worshipping San Giorgio I have to travel further and further to new building sites. I'm on my way now to the new inn they built. I'll change horses there and deliver this load" he gestures towards the pile of wood in the cart with his head "to the sea beyond. Gonna start some fisheries there. It is said we'll conquer those olive-farmers before long. But their land is even more polluted than ours." The farmer nods his head in reply. As the cart starts moving again, he returns to the field to harvest the last bushels of grain, growing between the stumps of what used to be a lush forest - three turns ago.

Antiquity is a strategy game for 2-4 players. It is set in an environment loosely modeled on Italy in the late Middle Ages. Players choose their own victory condition: they can focus on population growth, trade, conquest, or city building by choosing their patron saint. Each strategy requires a completely different style of play. Or you can choose to adore Santa Maria, the most powerful saint of all - but you'll be expected to build a civilization twice as impressive as any other player. While your economy is constantly improving, with more and more advanced cities bringing new options each turn, the land around your cities is slowly being depleted, forcing you to travel further and further to gather your raw materials - until finally, there is no more land left to farm. Let's hope one of you has won the game before that time!

&Cetera
€30.00 Inc VAT

NOTE: & Cetera is an EXPANSION to Roads & Boats. It CANNOT be played as a stand-alone game. There has been a new edition of the expansion available since October 2013.

A donkey plods onward, carrying some building material. Three geese are following some steps behind. All is well, when suddenly the sky darkens and a loud roar drowns out all other sound. The donkey frightens and looks up; someone in a three-piece suit is jumping out of an aeroplane. A minute later, he has landed and immediately starts giving orders: "Fold up this parachute! We've got work to do around here! This place will flood any minute now." A train stops and unloads some statues. "Bwah. Art!" growls the manager. We've got more serious things to worry about. Ask the traders if they have been able to procure any iron, we need to connect our oil platform to the power grid. And by the way, has that old paper mill in the city been blown up yet?" The donkey plods onwards. It has to build a road first....

& Cetera is an expansion set for Roads & Boats. It adds new buildings, new goods, new land types, new transporters, new ways to win and new strategies. It also includes 24 new scenarios and material to play with 5 or 6 players. & Cetera contains all the rules and material previously published as Planes & Trains, plus a lot more. It is compatible with the 2nd and 3rd edition sets.

Indonesia Board Game
Indonesia
€75.00 Inc VAT

This is the 2016 reprint of the game that was originally published in 2005, with some minor changes. If you order now, it will be shipped to you in two or three weeks.

Here is the original flavour text:

Judging by the smirk on the face of the Sultan of Solo, the businessman from North Sumatra has just made a mistake. And a costly one at that, too. He has paid way too much for merging his rubber company with the Sultan's extensive rubber plantations: there are no ships in the area to transport the rubber to the booming cities of Java. And the Sultan is now dripping in cash-he can bribe city authorities so that his ships will gain preferential access to those ports where they are competing. Or he might invest in building an oil imperium. But wait- what's that young fellow over there up to? Buying all the shipping lines? That might change the outlook. Considerably in fact. Let's see...

Indonesia is a game in which 2-5 players build up an economy. As the game unfolds, the basic agricultural economy develops into early industry-the players getting rich in the meantime by producing and transporting goods, and by acquiring and merging companies at the right time, and for the right price. The game takes three to four hours to complete.
