After years (and years) of development, I finally feel confident enough to say that Blücher will be the next HONOUR game, and that it will be available next year. For more information, see the flyer.
My thanks to Eudes Lefevre, who has translated the free “Longstreet Lite” rules into French. They are available now on the downloads page.
For those who would like to try a very basic, “bare-bones” version of the Longstreet game, the free “Lite” version is now available on the HONOUR downloads page. You can sample a very simplified version of the game’s basic structure and mechanics, using the free basic action cards that are also available. “Longstreet Lite” is […]
Huzzah! The printers have informed me that Longstreet is on his way. I expect to have the books in hand in a couple of weeks, and then the cards a couple of weeks after that. So we’re on schedule for an August release (he said hopefully.) In the next few weeks you will see some […]
As I write this, I’m packing for my annual research trip in Germany. I’ll be working in the Prussian archives in Berlin and the Hessian archives in Marburg (Hallo, Brüder Grimm!). June is a slow month at HONOUR, but when I return, events will start to move rapidly as we prepare for the release of […]
Now the most nerve-racking part of game development ensues: The Long Wait. Longstreet is done and the proofs have been approved for both books and cards. So it’s at the printers and will be probably another 2-3 months before I can see the final results. The books are being printed in the USA, and will […]
I’ve kept quiet for the past month or so, as I needed time to explore all options, but I’ve decided that Longstreet will be released as a book. The complete game will therefore be like Maurice: a book and a boxed set of 108 cards. I’ve been in discussion with a few printers, and have come up with a […]
If you’re curious about how Longstreet is coming along, be sure to check out the new flyer for him, with examples of game play and cards. In the meantime, for anybody who hasn’t yet purchased Maurice, you no longer have any excuse! The Maurice PDF is on sale for a mere $20! You can […]
Greetings All: Mark Severin, who does all the HONOUR store shipping, will be taking his annual holiday break starting tomorrow, 21 Dec, and will return on Sat, 29 Dec. That means that any orders placed in the online store during that week, will be delayed by a few days. Thanks for your understanding, and […]
Coming in the second half of 2013, the third HONOUR game will take a unique perspective on the American Civil War. Rather than refighting the same dozen famous battles for the umpteenth time, Longstreet will ask you to create a “character” – historical or fictional. He begins the war in 1861 commanding a small brigade of […]
