Dungeon Time



$29.90 SRP
NPI
 


Dungeon Time is a real time, cooperative card game of exciting dungeon adventures and catastrophic failures for one (yes, you can play solo!) to five players. As the sand falls in the sand timer, you must race through the deck to achieve as many missions as you can. Simultaneously, you and your friends draw, play, draw, frantically looking for all the Items you need to complete your Missions. Get the Items in play as fast as you can, then complete a Mission by playing it on the Story deck at the right time, when your equipment is correct.

You must try to beat the clock, going through the Missions as fast as you can; but you must also avoid being over–burdened by your equipment—miss the right Items and your Mission fails; bring too much unnecessary equipment in your Backpack and you lose the game. When time is out, go through the Story deck, to find out if you fail or if you win ... and level up to higher challenges if you do!

Sails of Glory Ship Packs!

Designed to be used with the tactical ship–to–ship game system created by Andrea Angiolino and Andrea Mainini, each Sails of Glory® Ship Pack is a ready–to–play model, painted and assembled, 100% compatible with any other Sails of Glory game product.

Each pack includes the ship, a special base with gaming stats, a ship log and a specific deck of maneuver cards

ARESGN109A
Sails of Glory: Artesien 1765/ Roland 1771

$21.90 SRP
NPI

The Artésien class included five French 3rd rate ships of the line, built at Brest to a design of Joseph-Louis Ollivier. They were armed with 64 cannons and had a designed crew of 570-580 men. They were armed with 26 24–Pounder guns in the lower deck, 28 12–Pounder guns in the upperdeck, and 10 6–Pounder guns in the quarterdeck and the forecastle.

The Artésien was built in 1765 as part of a series of 12 ships of the line built to compensate losses endured by the French Royal Navy during the Seven Years' War. The Artésien took part in the American Revolutionary War, departing in 1781. A fine 1/28th scale model of the ship was used to instruct Louis XVI in naval studies and is now on display at the Musée de la Marine.

The ship base, ship card and ship log are printed on two sides—the game data of a second ship is printed on the back. This ship pack can also be used to represent the French Artésien class ship–of–the–line "Roland 1771."

ARESGN110B
Sails of Glory: HMS Leopard 1790 / HMS Isis 1774

$21.90 SRP
NPI
 


The Portland class was a class of British 4th rate ships, armed with 50 cannons and with a designed crew of 350 men. They were armed with 22 24–Pounder guns in the lower deck, 22 12–Pounder guns in the upperdeck, 4 6–Pounder guns in the quarterdeck, and 2 6–Pounder guns in the forecastle.

HMS Leopard saw service during the French Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars, and was active in Europe, East Indies and Egypt. In 1807, a group of British sailors – some of American birth – deserted and joined the crew of USS Chesapeake. Captain Humphreys, commanding Leopard, requested permission to search for the deserters. Chesapeake's captain refused, and Leopard opened fire, capturing the American ship. Humphreys took back four deserters and hanged the British–born ones. This incident was one of several episodes that increased the tension between the British Empire and the United States, finally exploding in the War of 1812.

The ship base, ship card and ship log are printed on two sides–the game data of a second ship is printed on the back. This ship pack can also be used to represent the British Portland Class "HMS Isis 1774 (1779)."

ARESGN112C
Sails of Glory: HMS Bahama 1805 / HMS San Juan 1805

$21.90 SRP
NPI
 


The Bahama was a Spanish ship of the line, built in Havana in 1780. Originally designed as 64–gun by Ignacio Mullan, she left Havana for Cadiz on 1785. Here she was rebuilt and completed as a 74–gun, following the project of Francisco Gautier, the designer of Nepomuceno class. As a 74–gun ship of the line, she was armed with 74 cannons and a designed crew of 640. They were armed with 28 32–Pounder guns in the lower deck, 30 18–Pounder guns in the upperdeck, 8 32–Pounder guns and 6 12–Pounder guns in the quarterdeck, and 2 12–Pounder guns in the forecastle.

The ship was part of the Spanish fleet that participated in the Battle of Trafalgar, where she was hit by the intense fire of British ships, with 75 killed and 65 wounded. Her commander, Commodore Galiano, died after being struck by a cannonball. After capture by the British fleet, Bahama became HMS Bahama, following repairs in Gibraltar. She sailed to England and was used as a prison ship.

The ship base, ship card and ship log are printed on two sides–the game data of a second ship is printed on the back. This ship pack can also be used to represent the Spanish Nepomuceno class "HMS San Juan 1805."

ARESGN111C
Sails of Glory: Principe de Asturias 1794 / San Hermenegildo 1789

$23.90 SRP
NPI
 


The "Meregildos" were Spanish 1st-rate ships of the line, armed with 112 cannons and with a designed crew of about 1100. They were armed with 30 36–Pounder guns in the lower deck, 32 24–Pounder guns in the middle deck, 32 12–Pounder guns in the upperdeck, and 18 8–Pounder guns in the quarterdeck and the forecastle.

The Príncipe de Asturias was another of the Spanish three–deck 112–gun ship of the line, based on the Santa Ana design by Romero Landa. She fought with a British squadron on 14 February 1797 in the Battle of Cape St Vincent, with 10 killed and 19 wounded. At Trafalgar, the ship suffered 50 killed and 110 wounded. After the battle, she had to be towed by the French frigate Thémis and undergo major repairs in Cadiz. She returned to fight in the Peninsular War, capturing many French ships. She crossed the Atlantic to Havana with Santa Ana to avoid capture by the French. In 1814 she struck a rock and was scrapped three years later.

The ship base, ship card and ship log are printed on two sides–the game data of a second ship is printed on the back. This ship pack can also be used to represent the Spanish Meregildos class "San Hermenegildo 1789."
