Default Boku Strategy Games Goes All American!

News Release For Immediate Release



Baseball, Airborne Night Drops, and Apple Pie Together At Last!


Hampstead, NC, 13 October 2006

The North Koreans may be testing nukes and Shrapnel Games has new information about
All American: The 82nd Airborne in Normandy. Yeah, someplace a 15th century seer is
turning over in his grave.

Shrapnel Games is proud to announce that Boku Strategy Games (The War Engine, the
Combat Command 2 series, the Horse and Musket 1 and 2 series and the oldest Shrapnel
Games developer) is now tweaking the All American code and pushing forward on this
highly anticipated (and yes, highly delayed!) title. While no release date has been set
with Boku focusing on All American developments should now be happening sooner
than later.

All American: The 82nd Airborne in Normandy is the sequel to the blockbuster tactical
strategy title, 101st: The Airborne Invasion of Normandy. Featuring skirmish level play,
with players guiding individual soldiers, All American boasts forty-eight uniquely
characterized troops to command in a variety of scenarios. Based on real world maps of
the Normandy countryside, All American features a high level of authenticity with thirty-
five weapon types researched and modeled, and a combat result system based on real
world wound studies of the Second World War. A dynamic play structure makes every
mission unique, and the ability to play multiplayer adds to that. All American: The 82nd
Airborne in Normandy will be available for Windows.

But that's not all that Boku Strategy Games has cooking! Boku Strategy Games will be
entering the boardgame side of the business with their first title, "BaseBrawl!!!"
BaseBrawl!!! is the All American game everyone knows and loves, but with the added
possibility of a tad bit of the ol' ultra-violence. If you're familiar with baseball then
you'll have no trouble cranking up a game of BaseBrawl!!!, which plays like the real
thing except you only need a kitchen table to host your own World Series. Three
different layers of rules (Little League, Minor League, and Major League) help gamers of
all ages and abilities quickly learn the game system.

"It's been a good year for Boku", says owner Michael Cooney, "Not only have we found
resources to continue our most revered software series, we're bringing to baseball fans
everywhere the most realistic and fun-to-play tabletop baseball game ever seen. We took
a whole new approach to sports boardgaming by concentrating on the mechanics of the
game instead of simply rolling out a whole play. And you get the added bonus of taking
out fielders while running the bases if you want. Who can pass that up?"

Shrapnel Games is currently seeking beta testers for this exciting and revolutionary sports
boardgame. If you're interested please drop beta test coordinator Mindi Arnesen an
email at mindi@shrapnelgames.com letting her know your interest, any experience you
have with beta testing, and any other relevant information. Those chosen will be notified
at a later date.
