This Week's New Releases

This Week's New Releases

Brand new board & trading card games! 

This week's brand new releases are...

Assault of the Giants: Dungeons and Dragons Board Game

Assault of the Giants challenges players to command one of the six types of giants and claim the right to rule over all giantkind. Command giants and assault settlements to score points and secure important resources, including food, treasure, ore, and runes. The game contents include fourteen giants miniatures, measuring from approximately 4" to over 5½" in height.


Buffy the Vampire Slayer The Board Game

In Buffy the Vampire Slayer: The Board Game, you help Buffy and her friends defend the town of Sunnydale from an onslaught of vampires and demons, while ultimately attempting to foil the big bad's plot and prevent the Hellmouth from opening. You have to work together, using all of your resources — including special abilities for the character that you play, whether Willow, Spike, or Buffy herself — to defend the helpless townies.

The Miskatonic Museum Mythos Pack: Arkham Horror LCG Exp.

The Miskatonic Museum is the first Mythos Pack in The Dunwich Legacy cycle for Arkham Horror: The Card Game.

It begins with a book… Somewhere in the Miskatonic Museum a book called the Necronomicon lies hidden away, kept locked and secret so that those individuals who shouldn't gain access to it do not. The cards and adventure from The Miskatonic Museum grant you access to the Museum and its many exhibitions.

You aren't alone within the museum's darkened chambers; something else stalks the exhibits…

Herbaceous

In Herbaceous, herb collectors compete to grow and store the most valuable medley of herbs.

On your turn, you draw an herb, then decide to either keep it in your personal collection or put in into the communal pile.

If kept, the next card goes to the communal pile; if placed in the communal pile, the next card goes in your personal collection.

At the end of the game, collectors determine the best collection as a combination of value from their collection, matching herbs, and herb sets.

Vikings Gone Wild

Each turn in Vikings Gone Wild — a deck-building, resource management game based on the online real-time strategy game — players can either buy permanent buildings sitting in front of them (resource factories, resources containers, etc) or buy units, towers and special cards that improve their deck and offense/defense capacity.

The only way to win is by successfully attacking each other, and each attack involves interesting bluffing mechanisms in which the attacker doesn't know the defense capacity of their opponent...

      Recent releases available now! 

      Ticket To Ride - First Journey

      Ticket to Ride: First Journey takes the gameplay of the Ticket to Ride series and scales it down for a younger audience.
      In general, players collect train cards, claim routes on the map, and try to connect the cities shown on their tickets. In more detail, the game board shows a map of the United States with certain cities being connect by coloured paths. Each player starts with four coloured train cards in hand and two tickets; each ticket shows two cities, and you're trying to connect those two cities with a contiguous path of your trains in order to complete the ticket.
      The first player to complete six tickets wins! Alternatively, if someone has placed all twenty of their trains on the game board, then whoever has completed the most tickets wins!

       

      Santorini

      Santorini is a non-abstract re-imagining of the 2004 edition. Since its original inception over 30 years ago, Santorini has been endlessly developed, enhanced and refined by mathematician and educator, Dr. Gordon Hamilton.
      Santorini is a highly accessible pure strategy game that is simple enough for an elementary school classroom. But with enough gameplay depth and content for even hardcore gamers to explore, Santorini is truly a game for everyone. The rules are deceptively simple.

       

      Gloom in Space

      Space is the worst — empty, black, airless, awash in radiation, and dotted with immense clods of flaming plasma that make everything within millions of miles too hot to support life. If your living room were like space, you'd never ever go there.
      In Gloom in Space, you make your rag-tag band or star-faring heroes miserable, then kill them. Eventually, enough Untimely Deaths come to pass that the game ends. And then? The most miserable crew wins.
      Gloom in Space is a standalone game that's also compatible with all existing Gloom core games and expansions.

      Jump Drive: Race for the Galaxy

      With the invention of Jump Drive, the race for the galaxy begins! Develop new technologies and settle worlds to build a space empire. Find winning card combinations!
      Race for the Galaxy: Jump Drive is a fast-paced card game that introduces players to the Race for the Galaxy universe. Can you build the most prosperous galactic civilization?
      Jump Drive is a standalone game and offers simpler rules and a shorter game than its older brother Race for the Galaxy.

      YGO Raging Tempest Booster Box

      Each Raging Tempest booster box contains 24 boosters packs, with each pack containing 9 random cards from the set.


      Dominion Big Box 2nd Edition

      This Big Box edition comes with the new 2016 versions of Dominion and Dominion: Intrigue, as well as additional basic cards for 5 and 6 player games.
