Next week's new releases, available from Monday!
Monday again? No problem! See these games? They're all launching on the 27th!
The Rebel Alliance fights valiantly against the tyranny of the Galactic Empire. Each new victory brings the Rebels hope, and each heroic sacrifice strengthens their resolve. Still, the Empire’s resources are vast, and the firepower of its Empire Navy is unmatched. With neither side willing to accept defeat, their war rages across the galaxy…
In Star Wars™: The Deckbuilding Game, a new head-to-head game for two players, the galaxy-spanning war between the Galactic Empire and the Rebel Alliance comes alive on your tabletop. In this easy-to-learn game, you and your opponent each choose a side, playing as either the Empire or the Rebels, and as the game progresses you both strengthen the power of your starting decks and work to destroy each other’s bases. The first player to destroy three of their opponent’s bases wins the game!
Looking for that interstellar fix but not feeling Star Wars?
The human race has exhausted all the energy available on planet Earth. If they are to advance into an intergalactic civilisation they must harness the power of a solar system. They must build a dyson sphere.
Solar Sphere is a dice placement/manipulation game with elements of engine building, resource management, and set collection. Set hundreds of years in the future in a time when competition will move mankind forward, but when collaboration is also sometimes necessary. In Solar Sphere, each player commands a mothership. Their primary task is to build a dyson sphere. But, with crew to hire and aliens attacking the sphere, there are many other ways to earn prestige and become the saviour of mankind.
You can also grab the launch expansions HERE!
An expansion set to Throw Throw Burrito and Throw Throw Avocado. Practice your defense! Block Block Burrito introduces Tortilla Shields which add a whole new dynamic to the game. Players are now able to defend themselves against flying Burritos and Avocados! Features 6 NEW BATTLES!
Leading directly on from burrito based board gaming, I'm a Little Crabby is another party game from the minds behind Exploding Kittens!
Scratch your nose, blink three times, tap your shoulder. A game of secret signals where you hide everything and suspect everyone.
One of the simplest and best bluffing games returns with another refresh!
Players sequentially place down cards until someone feels safe enough to state that they can turn a number of cards face up and get only roses, avoiding skulls. Other players can then overbid, saying they can turn more cards face up. The highest bidder must then turn that number of cards face up. If they turn over a Skull, they lose!
In Caral all players take on the role of master builders, creating pyramids in a rhythmic cycle of years while influencing the duration of each cycle. The unique progress rhythm allows players to put pressure on each other. Will you master the well-interlocked mechanics in order to win?
Caral will surprise you with a fresh gaming experience! What starts out very simple, develops surprisingly complex. For example, Alpacas and resource cards allow you more flexibility on the spiral path. But sacrificing valuable cards in the annual ceremony can give you great advantages over fellow players. It's all a matter of tactics!
Make Caral your very own game with different modules that allow you to increase game complexity as desired (chronicle style)—turning Caral into a game you can enjoy with your family and with experienced gamers alike.
The world is dangerous and dark. Sometimes you may have to sacrifice to survive. The question remains: What will you give, and to who?
IKHON is a mysterious box. A gaol keeping four almost-forgotten folk gods at bay; the Bilkherd, the Becklure, the Old Dead and the dreaded Silkfiend. Those who dare commune with them are promised great rewards. But life and death go hand in hand and too small a sacrifice could be perceived as an insult. This gift could very well be a curse.
MORE BOARD GAMES ON THE WAY:

The planet is ruined, and it's time to try again. This competetive game for 1-6 players sees you placing polyomino resource tiles to build out the best, new planet!
Developing infrastructure may not be easy. You'll have to place tiles efficiently to cover the planet. Watch out though, as some moves trigger meteor showers that make it harder to score victory points!
The hotly anticipated sequel to the acclaimed Scythe is now available for pre-order! Promising to be a "competitive, card-driven, tile-exploration, engine-building sequel", it's hard to not be excited if you're a fan of the first game.
