Neuroshima HEX! 3.0, created by Michał Oracz, veteran board game designer, author or co-author of Monolith Arena, Cry Havoc, This War Of Mine and Tainted Grail: The Fall of Avalon is a game of tactics, wits, and a little bit of luck. With all those expansions it has limitless replayability!
In one of his reviews, Tom Vasel once said that every game should have ultimate and final tie-breaker. He said he really is disappointed with: “In such case, both players share the victory.” I couldn’t agree more. I precisely remember my one and the only game of Power Grid that happened in winter 2006 – after three hours struggle, we finished tied. That was a really disappointing moment. Seriously, I’d prefer to lose than to be tied winner. A tie is an unfinished matter. It’s the unresolved case. It’s end without the proper ending. *** For serious games like Cry Havoc, we don’t fool around – once the game ends you will have a definitive winner, it’s either a player with most prisoners at the end of the game or the one who went later in the initiative order, we don’t have any compromises here. For silly games like Rattle, Battle Grab the ...
In may, this very month we finally released all 12 (twelve!) armies for Neuroshima Hex. There was a ton of armies released only in Poland and for years fans worldwide were waiting for release – Portal Games was releasing two or three per year, but that was a very slow process. And finally we made a decision – stop this bullshit, just reprint them all once for good. And here we are, no delay, no problems, now all 12 armies are available in English worldwide. To celebrate this epic moment let me go back in time to April 2015 and republish a great article from my friend, Michał Oracz, designer of Neroshima Hex. 10 games, which made Neuroshima Hex real thing! Michał Oracz 1) Colosseum – this is my own logical game (quite an old), it’s about battle between two factions, quite similar to NS Hex. I have used its basics, which have been ...

Enjoy!
