Lucca Comics and Games Honors Us Again

prog2Another ElfinWerks game has been selected by the judges at the Lucca Comics and Games fair in Italy!

011 has been honored with the "Best of Show: Menzione Speciale Miglior Progetto Editoriale" award.  The game that has the best artistic, editorial, and overall presentation and quality in design, as chosen by a jury of Italian game experts, is chosen for the award.

This is the second time an ElfinWerks game has been chosen for this award. Last year the jury chose to give the award to Florenza.

We couldn't be more flattered that the good folks at Lucca Comics and Games enjoyed our work so much! Thank you Lucca!

Jerusalem and Florenza Make the Games 100

We are elvishly delighted that two of our games were chosen for Games Magazine's "Games 100" for 2012!

Every year, the editors at Games Magazine choose the 100 best new games in a variety of categories. In the "Advanced Strategy" category, both Jerusalem (designed by Michele Mura) and Florenza (designed by Stefano Gorppi) earned a place on the list.

The entire "Games 100" list can be found in the December 2011 issue of Games Magazine. Congratulations to the winners in each category!

Both Jerusalem and Florenza are still available, so make sure you pick up a copy before they're all gone. Get them from us or your favorite game retailer!

Join 011 on Facebook!

011_coverNow you can get up-to-the-minute news about our exciting "011" project on Facebook!

Come on by the fan page at:


More behind-the-scenes images and videos for the Therion mini-movie based on the game can be found there too!

Ragnarök is coming...

Filming has begun on the short film based on the up-coming ElfinWerks and Scribabs boardgame, 011, featuring metal band Therion! The screenplay was written by Paolo Vallerga, who also wrote the novel that inspired the game.

You can see some behind the scenes images on youtube.

These first shots feature the menacing Incarnation of Fenrir, the villain of the 011 story.  The members of Therion will arrive in Torino for a full week of filming later this month. Make sure you come back to visit us—we'll keep posting news as we learn about it!

EWAWweblogoWe've teamed up with brand-new game publisher Arcane Wonders to bring you one of the most exciting game projects that we've seen in a long time. And we'll be joining up at Origins later this month to give you an exclusive sneak peak at their flagship title!

Arcane Wonders is a new publisher devoted to producing exciting and original games. Founded by designer Bryan Pope, its first title is Mage Wars, a customizable card-driven tactical board game of dueling mages. Mage Wars breaks free from existing game genres, and is the result of more than four years of development and design.

Bryan asked us to help him develop, produce, and market his brainchild, and we're honored and delighted to have the opportunity. Your first chance to get a look at this great new game will be at the Origins Game Fair in Columbus, Ohio, June 23 - 26. Make sure you drop by booth #116 and get yourself into a demo of this awesome game!

Of course, we'll have all your favorite ElfinWerks games on hand, and our cheerful elves will be more than happy to answer any questions you might have about Mage Wars or any of our games!

See you in Columbus!
