PRESS RELEASE: Stronghold Games Announces
Tuesday June 02, 2015
Stronghold Games is proud to announce the release of The Golden Ages, the highly-acclaimed game originally published by Ergo Ludo Editions for Essen Spiel 2014.
The Golden Ages is a euro-style civilization building game, where players lead their civilizations through 4 eras of history. During each era, the civilizations develop technologies, create fine arts, erect buildings, and build wonders. They send explorers to discover the continents, establish cities in distant lands, and send soldiers into battles.
The Golden Ages offers players varied paths to victory. Civilizations may achieve greatness via the arts, history, wonders, technologies, military, income, secret future technologies, and more. The player who most successfully evolves their civilization through history, overwhelming their opponents on the way to glory, will score the most victory points and be declared the greatest civilization of all.
The Golden Ages is designed by Luigi Ferrini, and it features the fascinating artwork of Alexandre Roche, who previously illustrated such highly rated games as Troyes, Jaipur, Bruxelles 1893, Carson City, Rattus, Tournay, and many others.
Stronghold Games has licensed The Golden Ages from Italian publisher Ergo Ludo Editions, founded by Alessandro Lanzuisi. This is the first game from Ergo Ludo Editions, and it has garnered many accolades in the board gaming community. The Golden Ages is nominated for the Dutch Game of the Year.
Stronghold Games has worldwide English rights for The Golden Ages. The Stronghold Games edition has a tentative worldwide release date of October 2015. The MSRP for this game is $59.95.
"The release of The Golden Ages underscores one of the core philosophies at Stronghold Games", said Stephen Buonocore, President of Stronghold Games. "We continue to publish great games from Europe, as well as support our existing internal game lines. We are excited to be working on this project with the fine company, Ergo Ludo Editions."
