The Universe is a Dangerous Place

In the 22nd century, we left a dying earth so that a fortunate few could settle the new home.

In time, we would learn that life on a frontier colony is neither prosperous nor peaceful. Our first encounter with the creatures started with hostilities and confusion, and ended with sacrifice.

Europe, 1559

Even the end of the Great Italians Wars didn’t bring peace to the Old Continent. England, France and the Holy Roman Empire have to face the struggles between Catholics and Protestants while other nations are trying to forge their destiny through the power of their new armies, experimenting innovative solutions in the warfare. This is the peak of the Iron Century, which will lead directly to the Thirty Years War.

Pike and Shot Tercio to Salvo is an expansion of Pike and Shot, and it covers the years between 1560 and 1628, putting the players at the head of one of the numerous nations involved in the wars of religion that spread out all over Europe at that time.

Pike & Shot is now available for iPad!

Posted: Thursday, January 29, 2015 by Bart Schouten

Back in October, Pike & Shot grabbed the attention of both specialized press and fans of wargames due to its streamlined game mechanics and its rich, yet rarely used historical background. From a strategic point of view, the period presents a brilliant evolution of military units and approaches thanks to the development of new technologies. Integrating firearms and artillery into an army is not an easy task, and only the most flexible commanders will be able to combine them perfectly!

To End All Wars gets its first expansion!

To End All Wars gets its first expansion!

Posted: Wednesday, January 28, 2015 by Bart Schouten

Praised for its historical accuracy and its capacity to properly cover a huge conflict that involved thousands of men and units, Ageod’s WW1 wargame, To End All Wars, amazed history buffs last summer. However, the huge scale of the Grand Campaign was demanding a lot of time and a deep involvement from the players. So the developers went back to the WW1 battlefields and selected a list of smaller scenarios able to not only offer an original approach of the war, but also to provide true tactical operational challenges to their fans!
