TYRANNY GAMES LLC RELEASES SACK ARMIES:EXPEDITIONARY FORCE
(Wauwatosa, WI, February 26, 2001)- Tyranny Games, a game company from
Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, announces the upcoming release of its new tabletop
strategy game: Sack Armies. Sack Armies: Expeditionary Force will be
released August 1, 2001 and will premiere at the 2001 Gen Con in Milwaukee,
Wisconsin. Expeditionary Force marks the first installment in the Sack
Armies series with Sack Armies: Colonization due out in December of 2001
and Sack Armies: Fortification in Spring of 2002.
Sack Armies: Expeditionary Force is set in a fantasy world where rival
Generals create armies to explore a newly opened continent known as the
Tangle. Players become Generals and choose their armies from diverse races
including the haughty Fey Court, the resilient human Empire, the brutal
Scourge Orcs, the dark Nether Sisters, and the reptilian Shazari. After
mixing in powerful Magic and Maneuvers to form an army of between 16 and 36
tokens, Generals face off using Tyranny Games' unique Two Flip game system
and Virtual Battleground setup. "We believe that players will find the
strategy in Sack Armies extremely challenging," said Tyranny Games President
Joseph Tierney. "Although fast and easy to learn, Sack Armies provides for
many levels of complexity."
Sack Armies: Expeditionary Force consists of 120 individual collectible game
tokens. These hexagonal game tokens feature original artwork generated by
Tyranny Games staff of fifteen artists. Expeditionary Force will be sold in
packs containing 42 randomly sorted tokens at a retail price of $11.95, and
boosters containing 18 randomly sorted tokens at a retail price of $4.95.
In Tyranny Games second installment in the Sack Armies series, Sack Armies:
Colonization, Generals will become ruling Warlords attempting to build a
successful Colony while competing against rampaging Expeditionary Forces and
rival Colonies. Sack Armies: Colonization will feature a whole new style of
play, including the addition of new races, buildings, and resource
gathering. Sack Armies: Fortification, due in late spring of 2002, will
focus on siege warfare.
