News: 504

posted in: News | 0

Have you ever wanted to own a game where you could change the rules and theme around whenever you felt like it? Well now you can thanks to 504 created by Friedemann Fries.

504 - Cover


504 contains (you guessed it) 504 different combinations, all playable and all in one single game. Even if you’re a skeptic you have to admit it sounds pretty exciting right?


The game includes 9 different modules that will be used to form the 504 unique play experiences. The 9 modules are:

  • Pick-up & Deliver
  • Race
  • Privileges
  • Military
  • Exploring
  • Roads
  • Majorities
  • Production
  • Shares


504 includes a spiral bound “Book of 504 Worlds” that will help the player combine 3 of the above modules to create the game the players will play. Some examples of this is:

  • A racing game that expands through exploration with technology improving the racing or exploration (World “253”)
  • An 18XX-style stock game with network building for income and production sites to provide workers for the road building (World “968”)
  • A wargame with a pick-up and deliver economy and bonus scoring from majorities (“World 417”)


Friedemann Fries has designed so many other games like the very popular Power Grid and the ever so entertaining Fearsome Floors. This game has been in the works for 3.5 years and it’s been a dream for him to make since the mid-90s.

Stronghold Games will debut its English edition of 504 in October 2015 at the Essen Spiel in Germany, and will generally available in November.
