Nova Suecia Games 5 Years
22 February 2014 the idea of designing inventive and interactive boardgames was born. The five years
that have passed since that day have seen over 30 games, many of which have received
After this, a period of games focused on specific core mechanics with innovative twists followed.
Iconoclasm was an abstract game with a support mechanic,
which later saw a simpler sibling in Lucca. The award-winning
Explorers & Exploiters was a 4X game where the players could move
any pieces and another award-winning game, Mingle & Murder, based
the deduction on the player actions. In the labyrinth game Mice in a Maze
the players manipulated the labyrinth rather than their pieces, and
Peoples - Migrations was a pure civilization game, simulating the urban
development. The latter will see a more complex sibling later this year in
Peoples - Civilizations.
A return to historical games resulted in the best-selling Apokalypsis
and the other "Ancient Greece" games Demokratia and
Politeia. Fair Trade was a runner-up in
contests for NGO games while the space control game Cosmoclasm would
later get an award-winning brother in the more complex Warring States.
But the latest game Dyce was placed even higher in the same contest thanks to
its unique trading mechanic featuring AI trading partners.
Dyce/Hangzhou is a redeveloped version of the components only game Dyce.
The game now has a map depicting the city and the resource market but the original theme of trading whiskies in
Dyce has been (instead of dyes in Hangzhou) has been restored. Only the Dyce version is available.
Warring States is a redeveloped version of Cosmoclasm. The game is now
set in China and in addition to fighting for tactical superiorities to place armies, the players also
fight for strategic superiorities to manipulate armies. Both the Warring States version and the Cosmoclasm version

like chess and RISK, I moved on to explore "American" games like Diplomacy and Civilization and then
