Rules of Play's top pre-order picks

Just like we wait for Christmas, tax rebates, and a happy ending for Rachel and Ross, we must wait for awesome board games to appear in our favourite local game stores. To deal with the pain, take a look through some pre-order games we're particularly excited about!

Can't stop thinking about one of these games? Feel free to pre-order before Rules of Play staff steals them all...

Dead of Winter: The Long Night

This is a pre-order product due out sometime in the third quarter of 2016.

'The Long Night' is a stand-alone board game as well as an expansion for Dead of Winter so players can start afresh or continue their epic struggle for power and survival in a zombie wasteland where nothing is safe. 

Fight off bandits from another colony, build improvements to your colony, watch locations evolve and most intriguingly unravel the mysteries of the new 'Raxxon' pharmaceutical location. It is full of powerful items, but also full of Raxxon’s twisted human experiments that show up in the game as disturbing new enemies...

Suitable for students, zombie-lovers, and groups of friends looking to spice things up with the thrill of death.

Mysterium: Hidden Signs

This is a pre-order product due out sometime in the third quarter of 2016.

In this brand new expansion for the incredibly popular Mysterium, the spiritualists must return to the spooky old mansion and investigate new and disturbing visions. With new suspects, places and objects, the case couldn't be more challenging; but which are the actual clues and which are there to throw them off? 

Will our intrepid investigators understand all the instructions this time and give the ghost its final rest, or will it continue in its undead state for ever more?

The original Mysterium was a fantastic family game that sold like hot cakes every time it was in stock. Bring more drama to your seance with this brand new expansion!

Pandemic: Reign of Cthulhu

This is a pre-order product due out later in 2016.

In this standalone and even scarier version of Pandemic, beings of ancient evil, known as Old Ones, are threatening to break out of their cosmic prison and awake into the world.

In Pandemic: Reign of Cthulhu, everything you know and love could be destroyed by chaos and madness. Can you and your fellow investigators manage to find and seal every portal in time? Hurry before you lose yourself to insanity...

Another hybrid board game loved by gamers and families alike, Pandemic is a classic, and this new twist on the tale is particularly suited to board game players with an evil streak.
