March Madness Infects Shrapnel Games!
Great Savings On Select Titles All Month Long!


Hampstead, NC, 04 March 2008

Shrapnel Games has been touched by madness this March and we want to pass it
along to you!  Don't worry, this isn't the kind of madness that involves a
combination of nudity, stacks of old newspapers, and empty peanut butter jars, nor is it an
insanity that will make you think that 'Chairman of the Board' was the greatest cinematic triumph of
the modern age.  No, this madness comes in the form of spectacular savings at the
Gamers Front all month long!

First, let us open the gates of pandemonium with a $7.00 savings off the
always popular Dominions 3: The Awakening.  Dominions 3: The Awakening is available for
Windows, Mac, and Linux and is by far one of the greatest gaming investments you will
ever make.

Dominions 3: The Awakening is an epic turn-based fantasy strategy title that
has garnered a multitude of awards since its release, beloved by both critic and
gamer alike. Up to twenty-one players vie for divine supremacy using a combination of
cunning, brute force, and diabolical magic to crush all who would oppose your rightful
rule.  Eminently moddable, even if you think you've seen it all with the base fifty plus
nations, three eras, thousands of units and hundreds of magic items, the community is constantly
adding to the game.

Next, soak in the glorious din of the madhouse and enjoy $5.00 off the
retail price of the winSPMBT Enhanced CD Edition.  winSPMBT, based on the timeless Steel
Panthers 2 and a new classic in its own right, is a consim of combined arms warfare
from 1946 until 2020 for Windows.  Featuring a grognard's delight of hex and turn based
gameplay, for anyone who grew up on the classic Avalon Hill and SPI titles of yesteryear
winSPMBT will feel like a time trip back to the golden age of board gaming--only this
time on your 'puter.

The winSPMBT Enhanced CD Edition features everything you'll find the basic
version, such as scores of exciting scenarios and weapon platforms from the world
over, but also includes plenty of awesome additions:  printed quick start guide,
resolutions up to 1600x1200, 250 PBEM save slots, separate map editor with twelve layers of
undo/redo and cut and paste, encrypted secure tourney play, and a sortable
encyclopedic function!

The March Madness procession then continues onwards towards a fantastic deal
that anyone can take advantage of this month.  Any order that subtotals $75.00 or
more automatically gets a 5% discount.  The order doesn't have to include any of
the current specials, just order $75.00 worth of gaming goodness and BAM!  Take five
percent off that order!  Easy way to save yourself a few greenbacks.

But wait, we're not done quite yet!  March enjoys teasing us with the first hints of spring,
so why not begin the spring cleaning already?  We decided to do so and
noticed that we had a rather healthy stock of Land of Legends, and since that meant that
instead of people enjoying the game it was sitting in a warehouse we decided to rectify the
situation.

In addition to all the discounts listed above we're currently running an
overstock special on the safebox version of Land of Legends for Windows.  Enjoy a savings of
$9.00 off its regular retail price.  Just so there's no miscommunication it's worth
repeating, the discount only applies for the physical, safebox version of the game and not
the digital download.  The $9.00 savings is good through March or until the overstock
situation rectifies itself, whichever come first - so hurry on this one!

Of Land of Legends noted gaming critic Bruce Geryk hailed both the gameplay
and UI, saying, "What it does best is present you with interesting choices each
turn, using an interface that's so unobtrusive you wonder why every strategy interface
can't be this good."  Indews Gaming Technology applauded that it's " a strategy title
chock full of tactical nuances and deep gameplay, yet easy enough to allow gamers to
simply pick it up and play, and pace it so that games can fit into everyone's busy lifestyle.
Land of Legends succeeds at all three."

Land of Legends is a light fantasy strategy title with scenarios playable
under an hour, yet brimming with material that you'd expect to find in a heavier title.
Featuring eight unique fantasy races, seventy unique unit abilities, a thirty-two mission
single player campaign, skirmish mode, and a fully integrated multiplayer matchmaking
module, this is the perfect companion for Dominions 3: The Awakening fans, or anyone who
enjoys a fast paced and replayable strategy title.  And at $9.00 off there's
absolutely no reason not to own it.

You'll find all these savings at our official storefront, the Gamers Front:
