I love the idea of skirmish multiplayer games! This certainly looks more like a fun boardgame vs normal skirmish game.

I would expect this to be a good introduction to the Mali world without investing too much :)

We have a release date? Or did I miss that in an earlier post?

It is definately a boardgame, could almost be seen as a LCG but with models to a degree and not a skirmish table top wargame.

There will also be something extra as an introduction into the world of Malifaux too...

Release date is about 1-3 months away if everything goes to plan.

No release date as yet but open NDA play testing has been going for a few months now. If any big announcements are to happen I am sure they will be at this years Gencon.

LCG = living card game?

Little snippets I have seen around the place is that it plays on a board similar to a chess board and utilises a paper/rock/scissors mechanic... don't know if its true or not but if its accurate it will be interesting how that scales up from 2 players :)

A few more tidbits from some interviews lately
Quote:
players compete against each other, multi-player is strongly supported (up to four people), the board will use hexes, and there will be impassable tokens and workbench tokens, meaning the board will be customizable each game.
Quote:
The P-wars board will be 1 foot by 1 foot, so it can easily be played anywhere. There are 91 hexes on the board. List building will allow any master to take any puppet, and even has a collectible card game feel, although the puppets are NOT collectible or randomized in any way with their distribution.

Just dont let her get to close to you with that syringe

Answer 14) The Starter box will include Lady Justice and Seamus master Puppets, and their sidekicks will be Judge, Bette Noire, Rusty Alyce and Misaki...

Now of course there is nothing keeping you from taking any or all (under certain conditions) of these with either master

15. Will the box have slots for miniatures, or will we tstill need to haul around a fig carrying bag? Not considering any expansions, just starter box. So is the box on it self transport friendly to its contents?

A.The box has foam, but not individual slots for minis, so unpainted it's good enough to keep them from being harmed, I think if you paint them, you should probably find a more secure carrying situation

That said, our good friends at Battlefoam have this strange new product on the horizon called a "toy box" and I wonder what that could be

Plus the following information as a bit of a recap:

Puppet Wars is coming out at gencon. It will be played on a board with hexes and support 2-4 players. List building is an important aspect and creates a CCG feel, although the models are NOT randomized. They will be in a core box with enough for 2 players and 4 wave 1 expansion boxes with 6-8 set puppets each.
