It's Nautilus What You Think

If you missed update on the new edition of Nemo's War, here it is off VPG's website.
I'm really looking forward to this!

This is just a quick update on some of the game project in the queue at Victory Point Games.
Nemo cardsAmong the most requested game updates is Nemo's War second edition. This project is currently with its art and graphics director, the amazingly talented Ian O'Toole. It you have followed this new edition of Chris Taylor's ingenious solitaire game design, after completing alpha and beta testing, off this game went to Ian where he has been painstakingly adding polish to enhance the gameplay and appearance of Nemo's War. As his "passion project," Ian has been hand-drawing every illustration and building the look of every component with the exquisite detail of a true artiste.
For this update, Ian has sent us more sketches to ogle, this time for the Nautilus upgrade cards, and sends these words: "I'm still working away on finishing off the Adventure Cards (I'm sketching them all, then tightening up the drawings, then colouring, so they're all being done concurrently)." Now, it's easy to understand gamer impatience for this game, but Ian's work is so worth waiting for! We anticipate having this game ready later this year (depending on the breaks), and just can't wait for everyone to take the new Nemo's War for a spin!

I have the first edition and really like it. Fun as it is though, its a bit of a backyard production from a component quality perspective. This 2nd edition is clearly a labour of love to give it the shiny it deserves.

Solo play too, so you can enjoy it when the kids are in bed!

The venerable Nautilus gets around in the Steampunk world. I did a post back in 2011 where I tipped in an airship and a sub into an image as reported by Harper’s Weekly Jan 26, 1861. I presume this was an unauthorized copy of the work of Capt Nemo.
