A special surprise for Salute

Mark Byng, creator of the IHMN Boardgame will be on our stand (GD22) at Salute 2017, showing the game off to the general public.

Anyone who comes to the stand can leave their email address and after the show Mark will draw one address at random and send them a full copy of the game! They will then own a pre-publication copy of this incredible game.

So get yourself to our stand and see Mark about his game…

IHMN Boardgame

What Is This?
Set in the world created by In Her Majesty’s name, Adventuring Companies conduct an undeclared war between the Great Powers, defeating adversaries to acquire the latest in scientific, engineering and mystic research for their patrons.
As we begin the game the Adventuring Companies are at home equipping themselves for their next mission.
Little do they know that the pharaoh Akhenaton has been reincarnated and is seeking the Regalia of Ra, if he is not stopped then immortality and world dominion will be his.

How is it Played?
Players compete to accumulate Fame Points by travelling to exotic destinations across the globe and completing missions, for every mission there is an adversary who must be defeated, combat involve Shooting, Fighting or Mysticism traits; they are resolved using a dice roll adjusted by skill, action cards and money spent.
During a challenge all players can opt to play action cards or spend money to either help the current player or, in the time honoured tradition of the ‘Great Game’, arm & equip their rival’s adversaries.
Six of the missions in the game involve the Regalia of Ra, Akhenaton’s agents are also searching for the Regalia and on every player’s turn all unclaimed regalia moves towards Akhenaton’s headquarters in Cairo, if a regalia item reaches Cairo then Akhenaton claims it.
When the sixth regalia item is revealed Akhenaton himself appears on the board and he moves to claim any remaining regalia.
If any player or Akhenaton collects all six regalia they automatically win the game.
Once all six regalia are off the board Akhenaton moves towards London, if he reaches it he wins.
Sometimes you’ll need to help a rival defeat their adversary just to stop Akhenaton getting too powerful or reaching London.
The game also ends when Akhenaton is defeated; in this case the player with the most Fame Points is the winner.

      2014 and priceless 🙂 Only 4 copies exist as this is the handmade prototype. One prospective publisher had first refusal for about a year and then declined to proceed so if you know someone …..

    You took me (and others) through a game at Portsmouth On Board c.2014 in the RBL. Great game! I’m astounded a publisher hasn’t snapped this up as yet. I hope the exposure at Salute produces a favourable outcome.
