Swindler Announced
Pegasus Spiele has announced a new push-your-luck game, set in Victorian London. "Each round, players will steal loot then have the chance to fulfill orders, sell loot to dealers, and hire accomplices. There are five money bags with a different variety of loot in each such as keys, coins, or different pieces of jewelry. The green bag has a wider variety of items with one of each type while the red bag gives a better chance of drawing a red key specifically. Different orders require different items to fulfill so each round players can choose which bag to draw from to try to get the item they want."

Reviews
Wormholes (Gameosity): “On the (worm)hole, we definitely recommend checking out Wormholes.  Aside from the game occasionally reigning up a bit short, the design here is really trim and effective.  ”

Age of Comics (One Board Family): “Dripping with theme, and it’s a unique one at that. Playing the game immediately took me back to my childhood and the collection of comics I still hang on to. The comic artwork on the cards and tiny comic tokens are gorgeous. Lirius Games captured the iconic look of each of these genres and it adds a lot to the presentation.”

Trekking Through History (Unfiltered Gamer): “With Trekking Through History, I would encourage you to come for the aesthetics, but stay for the substance. This is a real crowd pleaser that works both for the gateway player and the seasoned gamer. It succeeds in almost every way possible and will easily be considered a candidate for one of the best games of the year.”
