The weather in Belgium was (as usual) pretty bad this summer so we were happy when we stepped of the plane in Athens and felt the weather was nicely warm. We went to Athens 3 years ago when we became a couple so having dinner again in the nice restaurant "h oraia pentelh" was really special. The next morning we left early (even before the door of the hotel was opened) to the port of Pireias.

"With the unspeakable events of Troy behind them, the Greek Captains steer their ships for home. But Athene will not let these acts go unanswered and marshals the storm clouds as they have never been marshaled before, and nor will they be again. As the storm rises, and the currents take a greater and greater hold of your ship, can you steer your way home, or will you be swept into an inescapable whirlpool, or off the edge of the world?

Athene is a game for 3-6 players. The game is played on a grid of tiles. The tiles start off as calm seas, and players play cards to control the movement of their ship. But as the game progresses, the tiles are turned over to reveal the currents, and the players have less and less control of where their ship goes. The longer a ship stays at sea, the more valour the captain will earn, but ultimately you have to get home before the seas become unsurvivable and your ship is lost."

Announced by JKLM and made available for preorder before being pulled due to "lack of interest."

JKLM used to have a demo of this on their website which made it look interesting. Then JKLM went and pulled the plug on it due to lack of interest..

I liked "Fruit Bandits" by Ian Vincent.

I´m not really sure, if he´ll be on the fair, because this new game doesn´t appear any longer on the jklm-website.

From the Publisher:

I have not seen this game yet although the little video on the JKLM site looks good. A demo of this will be available at Expo.

Another one that since doing this list has become a 'Ghost Game'. Apparently, JKLM games have abandoned it due to 'lack of interest' yet looking at the animated game they once showed, it looked to have a lot of promise. Ah well..
