First time design from Nick Case

THE FRONT NINE: 'A BIG GAME IN A SMALL BOX' (Rahdo 2014)
Starting from their own club house, players develop a golf course, hole by hole. Each hole is depicted by a unique playing card with each having a differing topography which constrains tee access and green exits. This results in each player's design snaking across the table as they try to steer their course back towards the club house. Players must manage their finances carefully to generate an income to ensure they can afford the ever increasing land costs and resources required to design and build each hole.
The rules are short and simple to learn. They are supplemented by player aid cards that break down the turn phases and list the scoring conditions. 61 Cards comprise, 36 course cards, 14 'special' cards', 4 club house cards, 4 player aid cards and 3 market cards. 18 Resource cubes, 1 start player marker and 3 pawns are all made from wood and the game comes in a compact wooden box with sliding lid.
The Front Nine was available for pre-order and is now available directly from Nick Case at A-Muse-Ment for £17.00 plus postage (firstname.lastname@example.org). The game will also be available at the UK Games Expo in May 2015. Expansion #1 for The Front Nine, AUGUSTUS The Emerald Blazer Expansion will be released for the first time at the UK Games Expo. Price £5.00
