Two new PHALANX Games are now shipping to distributors and will be available in stores in US starting on June 23rd: Europe Divided and Freedom!.

Europe Divided is a game of an expansionist Europe, a resurgent Russia, and a new Cold War, taking place over two periods: 1992-2008 (European Expansion) and 2008-2019 (Russian Resurgence). Each player controls one of the two powers: Europe (controlling both NATO and the European Union) or Russia, both managing conflicts of political and military influence. Europe is powerful and rich, but bureaucratic and slow to react. Russia lacks Europe's resources, but can respond rapidly.

The game is rich with history and includes today's potential flashpoints, but it features a fast-playing card-driven core mechanism. Players score victory points by having dominant influence in contested countries in Central Europe, Eastern Europe, and the Caucasus. They can also score victory points by bringing key historical events to fruition. The player with the most victory points at the end of the two periods wins.

Freedom!, a siege game for two players.

Freedom! is an asymmetrical siege game for two players which represents the siege of the Greek holy city Messolonghi by Ottoman forces during the Greek War of Independence. The invading forces attempt to get inside the city before the end of the game or force the citizens to abandon it by geting their morale to reach zero, while the defenders try to withstand the siege and protect the city long enough for the invaders to abandon their attempt deciding to leave on their own or by their morale reaching zero.

With the Solo Mode Expansion, due to release in July 2020, a single player take the role of the Imperial Forces (Ottoman), while the Freedom Forces (Greek) are played by A.I.
