Manifest Destiny Demo at Games Day
One of the games that will be demo-ed at Games Day 2003 is Manifest Destiny (formerly known as Progress & Destiny: The American Age). Manifest Destiny is a card-driven multi-player strategy game for 3-5 players set in North America from colonial times to the present. Designed by Bill Crenshaw as the successor to Age of Renaissance, and developed by Ken Gutermuth, Manifest Destiny combines the strategic elements of earlier, longer civilization-based games with the elegance of streamlined European gaming. While reminiscent of its predecessors in some respects, it is significantly simpler and quicker to play (approximately 3 hours once you know how the rules). Designed to appeal to a wide range of gamers, Manifest Destiny combines several unique elements that require strategic balancing to succeed.
Additional information about the game can be found on the game's website:
Manifest Destiny is available to be pre-ordered online at www.gmtgames.com GMT places games they're interested in publishing on a "Project 500" list at a discounted price (in this case a mere $38 for a game that will retail at $55). Once they hit 500 sales they go into production (and the price goes up). Sales are currently at 356, so don't delay. To order on GMT's website click on Project 500 and scroll down to Manifest Destiny.
Please feel free to contact Bill Crenshaw directly at firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve a spot for the demo session or if you have any questions about the game.
