This Week's New Releases

This Week's New Releases

Brand new board & trading card games!

This week's brand new releases are...

Spoils of War

Do you and your friends sometimes seem like a bunch of bickering Vikings? Do you often have a hard time divvying up the wealth after a hard night's plundering? If so, Spoils of War might be the game for you. It might also be the game that will end such friendships, but we promise it will do so in the very best way.

Fists pound the table, insults are made, and tempers rise. Who deserves the best stuff? Spoils of War is a fast-paced and exciting game of bidding and wagering for 3-5 players. Each round, players roll their dice, then cleverly bluff and bet to outwit their fellow Vikings. The winners of each round get to claim fantastic treasures to add to their collection!

One Night Ultimate Alien

For all we know, aliens could be everywhere. Perhaps they are monitoring us through transmitters surgically impanted in us as we sleep. Perhaps they secretly control us through the world's corporations, manipulating us and keeping us in check through subliminal messages, mental conditioning, and chemical sedatives delivered to our oblivious selves in cans of popular fizzy drinks. Maybe they are even among us right now, disguised as members of our own family. Have you noticed anything strange about Uncle Gary recently? Hmm...

That's all pretty scary stuff. It doesn't bear thinking about. So instead, pick up a copy of One Night Ultimate Alien. It's extra-terrestrial world invasion, except it's a fun and silly social deduction game, and it doesn't keep you awake at night. It's a no-brainer, really.

The Lost Expedition

Legendary explorer Percy Fawcett marched deep into the Amazon in search of El Dorado. It was a dangerous journey, but lucky for us we can experience it from the safety of our tabletop! Make the best of your food, ammunition and health as you plunge deep into the jungle. Choose your path carefully to ensure you're ready for the pitfalls which may occur. Play solo or co-operative in a bid to reach the famed city!

Rory's Story Cubes: Fantasia

Kids and adults alike can tell fantastical stories about brave adventurers and dastardly villains in this magical dice-rolling game. The sides of each die show pictures of story elements, such as a fierce dragon, a jester's hat, or even the sandals of Hermes! Simply roll the dice and tell a story using the pictures you have rolled. The story itself is up to you!


More games coming next week:

Recent releases available now!

Magic Maze

You've seen the set-up a million times. There's a mage, a warrior, an elf and a dwarf, and they're going off on a grand adventure down the local shopping mall - wait, what?

That's right, Magic Maze is an epic game of fantasy shopping, as your heroes dash around buying supplies and equipment for their future questing exploits. What's brilliant about the game is that it's a co-operative game happening in real time. In order to evade the surveillance of the guards who eyed their arrival suspiciously, all four players will pull off their heists simultaneously, then dash to the exit. That's the plan anyway… but can they pull it off?

Century: Spice Road

Century: Spice Road is the first in a series of games that explores the history of each century, with spice-trading as the theme for the first installment. In Century: Spice Road, players are caravan leaders who travel the famed silk road to deliver spices to the far reaches of the continent for fame and glory.

Receiving a positively glowing review from The Dice Tower's Tom Vasel, this ingenious trading game is certainly one of the best of the year. Easy to learn, with a deep level of strategy and a gorgeous aesthetic, Spice Road belongs in every collection.

Bärenpark

If you're after something unBEARably cute this week, we have the fabulous Bärenpark!

Bärenpark takes you into the world of bears, challenging you to build your own bear park. Would you like another polar bear enclosure or rather a koala* house? Whatever your choices are, make sure you get the next building permit and use your land wisely! (* No, koalas aren't bears but they're so cute, they HAD to be in the game!)


SUPERHOT: The Card Game

A bullet misses you by millimeters. A dozen more come from every direction. Armed red guys are everywhere. You take a breath, check your options... and play a card. Part strategy, part shooter, and undeniably stylish, SUPERHOT is the bestselling independent video game in which time moves only when you move. Now, SUPERHOT: The Card Game is taking its unique mechanisms to the tabletop.
