Roads & Boats &Cetera 20th Anniversary Edition
Roads & Boats &Cetera 20th Anniversary Edition
€99.99 Inc VAT

Roads and Boats is our oldest classic. For its 20th anniversary, we are reprinting it for the 5th time! This edition will include the expansion, &Cetera, so it can be played with up to 6 players and you will get all the additional modules of &Cetera included in the game. There are no other changes to the game.

This is a pre-order. We hope to produce the game before summer 2019 and will ship it as soon as it is ready.

Here's what the game is about:

In Roads & Boats, each player builds a civilization over a long period of time, like in many other games. Unlike most games, however, the emphasis is not on warfare, population growth, city or statebuilding, but on logistics, or rather: on transport.

Each player starts the game with three donkeys, a pile of wooden boards, a number of stones and two geese. With these few resources, you try to build such diverse things as woodcutters, roads, boats, mines, a stock exchange... but beware! There is no concept of territory in this game: you cannot own land, nor buildings, so the things you build can be used by any other player...

The original game can be played by two to four players, but it can also be used as a one-person puzzle. Material for a fifth and a sixth player is available in the &Cetera expansion, which is included.

The basic game contains a rule and scenario book in English and German, a pile of hexagonal terrain tiles, 120 means of transportation from donkeys to steamers (wooden pieces), 75 walls (little woorden rods), 4 research boards, 28 discovery stones (glass), a wonder of the world with 193 wonder stones (cardboard), 18 mines + bags, 115 factories (cardboard), 600 goods (cardboard) and several other parts. &Cetera 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.

Ketchup Mechanism Cover
The Ketchup Mechanism and Other Ideas
€75.00 Inc VAT

The Ketchup Mechanism & Other Ideas is an expansion to our game Food Chain Magnate. It cannot be played stand-alone!

This is a pre-order. We will print the game this year (2019), but we are not fully sure when. Likely before the Essen fair in October. The game will eventually be available in shops, but in case of large demand, we will print and ship direct orders first, and then supply shops.

As of today (28 january 2019) the expansion is in good shape, but we are still testing several ideas for balance. The game consists of several modules which each add something new and different to the game. They can be played individually or together.

We will definitely include:

- materials to play with 6 players

- a new set of milestones that completely changes strategic options

- coffee and barista's: places where people stop on the way to get food

- new tiles with different types of buildings

- new food types that attract customers in different ways

- new employee cards and available promotions

- ketchup

Here is the flavour text:

"Chef! Some of our guests are asking for ketchup. Do we have any?" "We don't serve ketchup in this company." "Also they are asking if the restaurant will expand anytime soon? There's a restaurant in the new quarter and with all the roadworks lately it is getting a lot of traffic." "Can't you see I am working on my new masterpiece? How can I concentrate like this? I need that Michelin star! And this new sushi dish is just the thing. Or maybe if I combine kimchi with icecream..." "But chef. Your guests are not asking for fancy stuff; they want ketchup and coffee. And better decorations. And a new menu." "Get out of my kitchen. Now!"

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).
Food Chain Magnate box cover
Food Chain Magnate
€75.00 Inc VAT

Food Chain Magnate is our 2015 release. We printed 7 print runs in 2015-2018. This is the 8th print run, which is available now!

This print is identical to the previous print runs.

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
Antiquity
€75.00 Inc VAT

This is the 2017 edition of Antiquity, which we thought had sold out, however recently we found more copies which are available to order now, as long as stocks last.


We have reprinted Antiquity in 2017 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!


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
&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. The 2019 20th Anniversary Edition of Roads & Boats already contains this expansion, no need to buy it separately!

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.
