Dear customers,
 

Christmas is almost upon us!  And we're already seeing slow downs with Australia Post due to the sheer volume of parcels moving around the country at this time of year, so please do not delay in making in Christmas orders! Based upon current delivery timeframes, please order before 10am on these dates for your best chance at your delivery arriving by Tuesday 24th Dec:
 

  • Perth / Darwin Metro:   5 - 7 business days, order by Fri 13th Dec. (WA / NT Regional  + 3 - 5 business days)
  • Adelaide / Hobart Metro:  4 - 6 business days, order by Mon 16th Dec  (SA / TAS Regional   +  2 - 3 business days)
  • Melbourne / Brisbane Metro:   3 - 4 business days, order by Wed 18th Dec  (VIC / QLD Regional   +  2 - 3 business days)
  • ACT:   2 - 3 business days, order by Thurs 19th Dec
  • Sydney Metro:  1 - 2 business days, order by Fri 20th Dec  (NSW Regional   +  2 - 3 business days)

This is for titles in stock on the shelf ONLY! If your order needs to come from a supplier you will still need to allow the usual 3 - 5 business days for that.


I hope this helps your Christmas shopping timings!


May you all have a wonderfully gaming filled Christmas with friends and family.   :)
 

Much love and best wishes to all.

Hands in the Sea is a two-player deck building wargame on the First Punic War, between Rome and Carthage, 264–241 BC.

Each player has a starting deck of cards they use to perform various actions, up to two per round. Actions range from colonization, to naval movement, to battle, with most activity centered in and around Sicily and Sardinia/Corsica. Players may also purchase additional cards from their own custom decks, or from a set of neutral cards that either player may purchase. There are also Strategy cards that each player can purchase (one, max) that give the owning player some special advantage.

The game is played over the course of several turns, up to a maximum of twelve. At the end of each turn, players resolve random events, collect income and score victory points. There are several paths to victory, ranging from simply having the highest score at the end of the game, to capturing the opposing player's capital.

Inspired by A Few Acres of Snow, this game features several new elements, including navies, naval battles, cavalry superiority, mercenaries, field battles, sieges, manpower, strategy cards, random events, turn based scoring, bribery and tactical bonuses.

The name of the game is based on a quote from a Carthaginian commander, who claimed at the outbreak of hostilities that the Carthaginian control of the seas was such that the Romans would not even dare wash their hands in the sea.
