Saboteur 2

Since yesterday, we have the great pleasure to have Saboteur 2: golddiggers counter-attack! available to play on Board Game Arena!

There is of course no need to introduce Saboteur, a very famous game from Frédéric Moyersoen that enjoys a lot of success in many countries around the world. It has also been incredibly successfull on BGA: in a little more than 2 years, there has been more than 75.000 games, which is especially impressive when you consider that the most played configuration (around 60% of the games), gathers 7 players together! In fact, the game has even had its own fan creations with its own paper, the Sabbington Post, and even an official anthem on the BGA English game description page, at the end of the rules summary. That's just awesome, and I think it shows just how much players dig this game! ;)

So we are really happy to announce some fresh mining ground on BGA with the Saboteur 2 expansion! You can activate it by enabling the "Golddiggers counter-attack! (Saboteur 2)" option when starting a Saboteur table.

What's new with the expansion, you say? Well, lot's! First of all, there is now not just gold, but also gems. Then, the other players motives are now much more difficult to deduce, as each player is now not simply digger or sab, but can be one of 5 roles. The green and blue diggers each work in teams with the other dwarves of their color, and compete to get first to the gold, or to block the way with a door of their color to keep it all for themselves even if someone else discovers the treasure. The boss will get a share any way it goes, because you know, is the boss (and you don't want to mess with the boss, eh?) Saboteurs continue to break and sabotage all they can, of course, but there are also some geologists around, who don't really care about plain gold and will likely dig in every direction looking for gems! Finally, we have the profiteer, who'll get some gold whatever happens, even if the saboteurs win (but less than the other winners), and can be pretty impredictible. You'll see...

Of course, you'll also discover some new path and action cards to spice things up and keep every dwarf on their toes, fearing for the next move! Stay calm, and keep digging!

We would like to send a big thank you to the author Frédéric Moyersoen for this great game, and also to daveraux who started development on Saboteur 2 some months ago in BGA studio: it was a great start ladder to build on to continue development and get the game ready!

Very soon!

A new game is coming!

And for once, the clue is full of clues. This is a special treat, a creation from the BGA community some months ago that is just awesome: It's beautifully made and full of humor (and clues to the next game!)
I had been wanting to share it in the news for some time already, and this is the perfect occasion. Congrat's to everyone who contributed to this issue, I'm hoping for a #2 some day ;)

Your BGA story

This is July, it smells like holidays, and it's time to do something different than usual on Board Game Arena.

Board games are not only games: it's a way to create links between people. A great game is great because of the players around the table, and not only because it's a good game.

Some of you are playing on BGA for months (and some for years !), and I'm pretty sure a lot of you have a good story to tell about this website. It could be a long story or a very short anecdote. It could have happened online or in real life, it could be something that makes you laugh, something that makes you cry, someone you meet through the website, something you manage to organize using BGA, ...

As long as it's real, original and related to BGA, we'd like to read it!

During the summer, we are going to publish a selection of the most original stories sent to us, and the author of the very best ones will get a free Club Membership :)

The rules:
_ please send your story to contact (at) boardgamearena.com with subject "My BGA story".
_ please write us in English.
_ the story must be real.
_ it could be strongly or loosely related to BGA: as long as BGA is part of the story we buy it :)
_ and please do not post your stories as comment to keep the surprise!
