Just saw this elswhere on these boards, I believe in "projects" or "upcoming products" or something to that effect.
Anyways, this sounds cool enough that it might become one of my favorites.
Tarzan Triumphant: I am the Apeman
Board Game, $39.95 (est.),
TLG , ISBN 1-931275-50-5
For some time Tarzan lay where he had fallen upon the floor of the treasure chamber beneath the ruined walls of Opar. He lay as one dead; but he was not dead. At length he stirred. His eyes opened upon the utter darkness of the room. He raised his hand to his head and brought it away sticky with clotted blood. He sniffed at his fingers, as a wild beast might sniff at the life-blood upon a wounded paw. . . . What was he? Where was he? . . . The accident he did not recall, nor did he recall aught of what had led up to it.
~ Tarzan and the Jewels of Opar
Two Games in One Tarzans back in a board game that captures the essence of those most adventurous tales of the worlds most famous hero. As so often happened on his adventurous road, Tarzan has been struck with amnesia and it is up to you to figure out who is the true apeman. By overcoming obsctacles and out smarting your opponent (who is also trying to prove who the real apeman is) you prove that you are the true apeman. A game for the whole family to enjoy
Mode One: It is yours to plunge into the sprawling jungles around the mythical city of Opar and learn who is the true Apeman Up to seven players lead their own Waziri warriors and animal allies in a mad dash to seize the Golden City. Your opponents will try to stop you by killing your warriors, you and your animals, but it is up to you to seize the 5 gates of that jewel of a city. Once youve done that youve proven that you are the true apeman and Lord of the Jungle.
Mode Two: Jane has stumbled into Opars ancient treasure vault and become trapped. It is up to the true Tarzan to rescue her. Buried in treasture Tarzan or his allies must dash to Opar, seize the treasure and cart it back to his own city. Once Jane is uncovered only Tarzan can pick her up and carry her to safety. Of course, every imposter on the board will be out to steal her away.
Each player begins play with 18 Waziri warriors, 9 animal allies and 1 Tarzan piece. There are a total of 8 of Edgar Rice Burrough's lost cities on the gameboard, with jungle trails, rivers, lakes, swamps and mountains to cross. Then you have your opponents to contend with. Of course, if you can't take the pressure, you can always do like the imposter in Tarzan and the Golden Lion, and throw yourself in a river!

Since its 20,000 I suggest "Captain Nemo" as his title. Beyond the obvious connection, he is one who sails on his own terms and ignores those he doesn't agree with...confident in his journey and goals.
Sounds obvious to me! -Gm Michael
