Capstone Games is starting out strong with a couple titles that have already proven themselves in Europe. Arkwright is releasing imminently, but you’ll have to wait until October for Haspelknecht. These two medium-to-heavy Euro-style games already have a good amount of buzz about them and should do quite well upon their North American releases.

The first game in Thomas Spitzer’s highly acclaimed coal trilogy, Haspelknecth: The Story of Early Coal Mining transports players to the beginning of coal mining in the Ruhr valley in the sixteenth century. Players take upon the roles of farmers who exploit the presence of coal in their lands on the southern part of the Ruhr region. Obtain unique developments, expand your farm, and dig deeper in the Earth to exploit more coal. Beware of quickly accumulating pit water, for it can stall your efforts and prevent your extraction of valuable coal.
