F2FGaming Announces New Game Titles for Their Tunguska Online Board Gaming Service

Company to Hold Hammer of the Scots Tournament at Prezcon, 2006: The Winter Nationals

LEWES, DE -- (MARKET WIRE) -- February 21, 2006 -- F2FGaming Inc., an Internet gaming company, is pleased to announce recent developments that will upgrade their online board gaming service. These developments are a result of the growth and stability of the Tunguska board gaming service technology. Tunguska allows users to communicate with other gamers through private conversations or public meeting rooms. Users have the ability to find opponents and play games online. Text communication is available between the players as they are playing the game.

F2FGaming will be running a Hammer of the Scots tournament, using Tunguska, at Prezcon 2006: The Winter Nationals. Prezcon is an annual board gaming convention held in Charlottesville, Va., from 2/22 through 2/26. This computer-based tournament will be the first of its kind at Prezcon in its 13-year history.

Tunguska is built on Microsoft's .Net Framework with Coversant's SoapBox Server as the infrastructure's backbone. System requirements for this service are the minimum required to run Microsoft's .Net Framework 1.1 and the bandwidth necessary to run any popular instant messaging program.

An agreement has been reached with Columbia Games to add the card game Dixie [Bull Run version] and their newest block game, Crusader Rex, to the gaming service. Both games are currently under development for the gaming service and are scheduled to be released later this year. Columbia Games has been publishing classic wargames for more than 30 years and they are designed to be played, and played, and played with mounting interest each and every time.

Dixie is an exciting card and dice game for two players. Each player commands a USA (North) or CSA (South) army and seeks to win a battle from the American Civil War. In Bull Run players replay the first major battle of the American Civil War, a battle that shattered any hope of a quick war and a battle that set the stage for America's bloodiest conflict. Each collectable Bull Run deck contains 30 USA and 30 CSA cards, selected randomly from the 200 different cards that accurately portray every general, regiment, artillery unit, and significant terrain at Bull Run.

Crusader Rex is a block game based on the 3rd Crusade. One Player plays the Christian Franks, the other, the Muslim Saracens. The objective of the game is to control important Victory Cities such as Jerusalem, Acre, Damascus, and Antioch.

An agreement has been reached with Udo Grebe Gamedesign to add their popular World War II board game BlitzKrieg General to the gaming service. Development for this game is projected to start within the 3rd quarter of this year.

In BlitzKrieg General two military alliances the "Allies" and the "Axis" are at war with each other, World War II from 1939 to 1945. The Allies (British Empire, France, China and Poland) defend against the conquest plans of the Axis powers (Japan Germany and Italy). Both sides are supported by some smaller countries and later in the game the USSR and the USA join the Allied side.
