Osprey Games is known for its historical wargames, but in the past few years, they’ve been expanding into the realm of more varied board games with different themes and components. PHD is proud to be carrying several of Osprey’s product lines, including Frostgrave, a fantasy skirmish wargame, and Escape from Colditz, an asymmetrical, World War II–themed board game with card-drafting. Check out those games and much more from Osprey Games below.
Frostgrave: Fantasy Wargames in the Frozen City
Item Code: OSPFGV004
Amidst the frozen ruins of an ancient city, wizards battle in the hopes of discovering the treasures of a fallen empire. In this fantasy skirmish wargame, each player takes on the role of a wizard from one of ten schools of magic and builds a band of followers. The wizard’s apprentice will usually accompany his master, and more than a dozen other henchman types are available for hire, from lowly thugs to heavily armored knights and stealthy thieves. Wizards can expand their magical knowledge by unlocking ancient secrets and may learn up to eighty different spells. While individual games of Frostgrave are quick and can easily be played in an hour or two, it is by connecting them into an ongoing campaign that players will find the most enjoyment. The scenarios given in the book are merely the beginning of the limitless adventures that can be found amidst the ruins of the Frozen City.
Item Code: OSPOSG003
Every morning, Odin sends his ravens Huginn and Muninn across the entire world to bring back news of what life is like on Earth. Naturally, after thousands of years, they’ve gotten a little competitive. Race through the landscape in opposite directions to be the first to return to Odin. Focus on speed, or enlist the help of the trickster god Loki to create shortcuts and hinder your opponent. Can you be certain Loki’s changes won’t help your opponent instead? There’s only one way to find out! The revised edition of Thorsten Gimmler’s award-winning Odin’s Ravens has been completely redesigned, with new rules and a beautiful new art style inspired by Norse mythology.
Item Code: OSPOSG007
None can defy Fate but the gods themselves. Driven by the ambition of their king, the Greeks have arrived on the shores of Troy. Some seek power, and some seek revenge, while others seek the great moment in battle that will define their place in history. From veteran designer Günter Cornett, Agamemnon is a fast-paced strategy board game in which two players take the roles of ancient Greek gods during the Trojan War. By tactically deploying warriors to where they’re needed across the board, each player may influence the final outcome of the battles famously detailed in Homer’s Iliad. Some areas will be decided by the strength of your warriors, some by sheer weight of numbers, and others by the inspiration your heroes provide.
Escape from Colditz
Item Code: OSPOSG009
Colditz Castle – World War II. An impregnable fortress. An inescapable prison. Until now. Designed by Major Pat Reid, one of only a handful of prisoners-of-war to escape Colditz Castle, and screenwriter Brian Degas, Escape From Colditz is the iconic game of careful planning and nerves of steel. Become Allied escape officers—assemble your equipment, plot your escape routes, and coordinate your efforts to avoid the guards. Become the German security officer—maintain control through guile, ruthlessness, and careful observation despite limited numbers. This deluxe edition of the classic game for two to six players includes both original and updated rules, new hand-painted artwork, an over-sized board, fifty-six wooden playing pieces, one hundred fully illustrated cards, a thirty-two-page history book, and unique replicas of artifacts from the prison. Seventy-five years ago, Major Reid braved barbed wire, searchlights, and armed guards to Escape from Colditz. Now it’s your turn to do the same.
