Boise, ID, and Helsinki, Finland (March 8, 2017) – Ninja Division Publishing LLC. and Reforged Studios are proud to announce Warforged: First Contact – the first product in a line of games and supplements, introducing the war torn realms of the Mantra Wars.

Warforged: First Contact is a tabletop strategy board game that pits the fearless warriors of the Iron Legion against the Mantra, a galaxy-spanning covenant of aliens bent on dominating the human race.  Warforged: First Contact will be a tabletop strategy battle game, with rules designed by hobby industry legends Tuomas Pirinen, and Andy Chambers, and with production and miniatures by Ninja Division Publishing.

April will see the launch of our public funding campaign to raise awareness and to help fund the production of Warforged: First Contact, and a host of supplementary content and special offers for campaign backers.

Reforged Studios CEO Teemu Vilén comments:  “Reforged Studios has been busy designing a deep and engaging world for our digital property, creating a setting for having players command mighty heroes and huge armies. That led very naturally into thinking about designing a game for the tabletop space as a spin off from the mobile game we are working on.”
