Diplomacy is getting a new edition from Renegade Game Studios!

At the turn of the 20th century, prior to World War I, the seven Great European Powers are engaged in an intricate struggle for supremacy. Each power’s military forces invade and withdraw, shifting borders and altering empires with subtle maneuvers and daring gambits. The classic game Diplomacy is receiving a new edition courtesy of Renegade Game Studios.


Alliances are formed and trust is betrayed as players negotiate and outwit one another—in a delicate balance of cooperation and competition—to gain dominance of the continent. Diplomacy challenges players to rely on their own cunning and cleverness, not dice, to determine the outcome of this game of conspiracies and conquest.


  • 140 updated wooden meeples to represent fleets & armies!
  • New Quick Start Rules!
  • Classic game of strategy, negotiation, and betrayal!

Axis & Allies: WWI 1914 returns from Renegade Game Studios

Axis & Allies: WWI 1914

Renegade Game Studios will release a new limited printing of Axis & Allies: WWI 1914 this year, marking the return of a much-loved entry in the 42-year-old  wargaming franchise. Pitting the Allies against the Central Powers, WWI 1914 is not a game of blitzkriegs and bold offensives, but rather a war won by carefully-considered and determined offensives through the no-man’s-lands of Europe. 

This updated release will be the first limited edition offering in the Axis & Allies line under Renegade; who plans to bring back other classics from the past on a rotating basis. For future re-releases, fans who join the Officer’s Club will be able to participate in polls which will be used to determine which out-of-print titles are brought back next. 

The new Renegade printing will incorporate past errata and updates to the rulebook, add German (4) and British (2) infantry figures, and 20 more plastic chips to improve the gameplay experience, but will otherwise be the same great game gamers have loved for years.

 The new printing of Axis & Allies: WWI 1914 will have a suggested retail price of $99.99 and is expected to release at GenCon and then worldwide at game and specialty stores this August. Pre-orders are now available.

Vampire: The Masquerade 5th Edition Roleplaying Game Players Guide

Vampire: The Masquerade Rivals Justice & Mercy

The Banu Haqim are judges and lawbringers with both martial and sorcerous tools at their disposal. The Salubri are a clan on the run, simply trying to survive – alone if necessary. Rarest of all the clans, their mending abilities are second to none. You may play these two clans head-to-head or integrate them with your other clans to create new strategies with Vampire: The Masquerade Rivals Justice & Mercy!

The Salubri are rare, so rare in fact that you may only have one in play at a time! Don’t worry though, they come with a slew of tools to make a single-vampire coterie viable!

The Banu Haqim are a clan steeped in tradition, with a strong sense of justice. They aren’t afraid to punish Vampires that transgress, even through unauthorized diablerie if necessary! Check out our first look at some of the expansion’s cards on YouTube, and look forward to more previews soon!

Renegade to be the new home of Sid Sackson’s classic Acquire

Renegade Game Studios

Renegade Game Studios and Hasbro have expanded their partnership to make Renegade the new home for Acquire, Sid Sackson’s classic game of big-city real estate. A partnership was first announced in October 2022, with the announcement that Renegade would be taking over Axis & Allies, Diplomacy, Robo Rally, and Squad Leader. Renegade will be releasing a new version of Acquire in 2023.

First released in 1963, Acquire puts gamers in the shoes of a real estate mogul, vying for control of companies as they expand, merge, and gain value. Renegade’s latest version will incorporate community feedback and feature much-desired features like a return to the 9×12 gridded plastic board, plastic tiles and buildings, and classic theming of the hotel chains, including one named for the late great designer Sid Sackson. The rulebook will also be updated to include clarifications and adjustments gathered from previous versions of the game.

Gamers can expect the new updated version of this classic game in 2023 with distribution in friendly local game stores as well as specialty retailers worldwide. Localized editions are in the works and will be announced at a later time. 

Renegade will also be supporting the game with a Gen Con Championship held in Indianapolis this August.
