Stratamax Games

Originally set up by Max Michael (at least as far back as 1995), Stratamax is nowadays more of a collective, featuring games designers Aaron Lauster and Doug Eckhart as well as Max himself. For some years, Stratamax produced its games in white boxes with basic components. None of this detracts from the game play, of course, and I had some of these.

Stratamax then moved on to higher quality production, starting with Days of Steam, produced with JKLM in 2008 and then taken up by Valley Games the following year. A second edition of Tammany Hall was produced with Treefrog in 2009 and 2011 saw the arrival of hiking card game Let's Take a Hike.

For more information, see the Stratamax Games website.

Sheepdogs of Pendleton Hill (Max Michael)

This year's game from the Stratamax collective is professionally produced to a high standard. It is a simple game with brightly coloured wooden pieces: small sheep and tall shepherds for each player and a black, black wolf! It's an entertaining game that isn't as light as you might think: 30.00 (with the "Wolf" expansion).

Spice Islands (Max Michael)

The 2007 game from the main man at Stratamax. The game is "roughly based on the Dutch East India Company", trading around the Far East. Players get votes based on their shareholdings, but can also play pirate. "Timing is everything!": 20.00.

Tammany Hall (Doug Eckhart)

An entertaining game of corrupt politics as players wheel and deal their way to power. Set in the era of Boss Tweed, players recruit immigrants, hustle for votes and slander their opponents in the struggle to become Mayor. The latest edition (published by IDW) is well produced and great fun: 45.00.

Wampanoag (Aaron Lauster)

Players are leaders in the eponymous Native American nation, pressured by the arriving Europeans in the east and their traditional enemies in the west. Good stuff: 20.00.
