The Red Dragon Inn a Euro Game?

Published on May 16, 2012 by in SlugNews

ImageSpieletest, an Austrian board game review site, has just posted a review of the German Edition of The Red Dragon Inn. You can check the review out on their site here.

Some of our readers may be scratching their heads over the above bits pic. Back in 2008 SlugFest Games partnered with a Pegasus Spiele to produce and distribute a German translation of The Red Dragon Inn. The components where reduced, as well as the box-size for this edition, and you can see how things where modified above. Over all, Zum Roten Drachen (Red Dragon Inn 1) did so well that Pegasus Spiele released Zum Blauen Drachen (Red Dragon Inn 2) last year!

Happy gaming Austria!

Introducing The Red Dragon Inn: Allies!

Published on May 15, 2012 by in SlugNews

There has been a lot of talk on the blog and at the GAMA Trade Show about a pair of new Red Dragon Inn party members. We are pleased to announce a single character deck expansion for The Red Dragon Inn:

The Red Dragon Inn: Allies!

You may have heard us mention Erin the Ever-Changing in the Rules blog (check out Clarifications, Errata, and Reprint! if you hadn’t!) and we are pleased to let you guys in on the scoop now. Erin the Ever-Changing, an elven druid, will be the newest character and the first Ally to join the party at the Red Dragon Inn.

When you first meet this soft-spoken young elf, you might be surprised to learn that she’s an adept adventurer; even more so that she’s often fighting on the front line. But then again, you don’t run into very many shapeshifting druids at the Red Dragon Inn…

The Good: Erin’s always ready with a kind word and a healing chant to smooth ruffled feathers or mend wounded flesh.

The Bad: When the drinks start flowing, Erin can turn into a tree. Have you ever tried out-drinking a tree? It’s not pretty.

Wish there was a spellcheck button in real life.

Art Friday!

Published on March 23, 2012 by in Art Friday

Welcome to Art Friday!  Every Friday we will be posting development artwork for upcoming games.  Of course we don’t promise that any of this art is final, but when has that mattered when getting to see something awesome?

This week we have a bust shot of “Vladimir” from our upcoming game World’s Greatest Magician.  We have worked with the artist Beth Trott before and are always pleased with the quality she puts in for us.  You can find her talent in both En Garde and our newest game High Noon Saloon game, as well as being responsible for the backgrounds in our Red Dragon Inn series!

Go check out more of Beth Trott’s work here.

GAMA Digs SlugFest Games!

Published on March 22, 2012 by in SlugNews

Huzzah!  High Noon Saloon and Red Dragon Inn: 3!

We have gotten such good feedback about Red Dragon Inn: 3 and High Noon Saloon that they are both now up for the Origins Awards!  For those who don’t know, hundreds of games are sent to GAMA to compete for this award in various categories such as Best Board Game or Best Traditional Card Game.  Of these hundreds of games only ten games from each category make it to the Shortlist.  That Shortlist is then offered up to brick and mortar retailers to vote on which five games make the cut to the Nominee List.  If you are good enough to make it to the Nominee List you then are a featured game at the Origins Game Fair, where thousands of gamers will cast their vote for who really takes home the prize!

So thank you GAMA and thank you brick and mortar retailers for supporting SlugFest Games and spreading the fun!  It is an honor to even make it to the Shortlist, and you guys deemed our games fun enough to be a worthy Nominee.

Thank you!

– Sam Waller, VP SlugFest Games

Clarifications, Errata, and Reprint!

Thank you!

Why are we thanking you?  It’s because you guys are so awesome we have to move forward with an early reprint of Red Dragon Inn 3 and another of Red Dragon Inn 1!  As part of this reprint, we decided to do a few updates to the rules and card with more clarifications that fix some problems we have come across.

You can download the new rules here:

Red Dragon Inn 1

Red Dragon Inn 2

Red Dragon Inn 3

Red Dragon Inn 3: Character Rules

Card Errata:

As we where playtesting for upcoming releases, we ran into a few holes that made certain card interactions a bit too strange.  None of these changes affect the power level of the cards (unlike our Errata Buff to Eve we talked about earlier), but instead just clarify the intent of the card.

1)  “Lay on Hands” now reads:

This is simply to clarify that Serena’s piety depends on whether or not she chooses to take Gold.  Whether or not she actually gets any Gold is irrelevant.  An example situation where this could be a problem is if Serena plays this card on Eve and chooses to take Gold, and Eve plays Illusionary Coin.  Even though Serena receives no Gold, her Piety still goes down by 2.
