Today, Phalanx has been published! Okay, technically we published it late last night, but we debuted the game today at the Old Drum Days Festival. There, we revealed the board edition, along with the cloth bag edition and wooden board edition. We also had paperback copies of Magic’s Stealing available for sale, had a copy of Battle Decks on hand to show, and Syerra, one of our beta-testers, had a few pieces of her artwork available. We got to demo Phalanx for several of the fair-goers who visited our booth, and we had a lot of fun.

And now, Phalanx!
Throughout ancient history, the phalanx was one of the most formidable troop formations, famously used in war by the ancient Greeks. In this formation, soldiers interlocked their shields, forming an impenetrable barrier while thrusting long spears at their enemies.
In the game Phalanx, use movement cards to advance your troops, land on your opponent’s pieces to remove them from the game, and get four or more of your own pieces in a row to form your own formidable phalanx, which is immune to frontal assaults.
But be cautious—your opponent can still attack your flanks, or even attack from behind and break your phalanx.
Phalanx is the game that captures the strategic play of chess, the piece-turning excitement of Tetris , and the luck of the draw. With these elements, move your pieces and form your own formidable phalanx to capture your opponent’s city-state!

The board game edition is available online ($27.99), the cloth bag edition is available locally in red, cream, and green colors ($25.00), and the wooden edition is also available locally ($75.00).
Isaac and I are debating whether or not to offer the bags and wooden editions online, though we would have to ship them ourselves. We may consider options for doing that (such as through Etsy) in the future.
Anyway, have a look, and I hope you enjoyed this post. 😀
