Doctor Who Adventures in Time and Space Fifth DoctorPin a piece of celery to your lapel, because the Fifth Doctor Sourcebook has materialized.

Continuing last year’s 50th Anniversary celebration, Cubicle 7 is still working through releasing individual source books for each of the twelve Doctors.  The Fifth Doctor hardcover contains character stats for this version of the Doctor, all of his companions, his enemies, and allies.  These volumes also contain a comprehensive description of each episode in their respective Doctor‘s season as well as stats for running each of them as an adventure.  The Third and Fourth Doctor hardcovers have also recently shipped.Sushi Go!

The drafting mechanics of 7 Wonders have been condensed down to a quick, twenty minute two to five player card game, called Sushi Go!  Players pass stacks of cards around the table, drafting individual cards of sushi.  Your hand selection will be vitally important, as the rounds go quickly and what you choose at the beginning will determine what Munchkin Princesses expansionsushi pairings you are going after.

Hopefully your ball gown has been tailored and delivered, because it’s turning into a straight-up royal gala in here!

Munchkin Princesses is ladies night all the time, providing fifteen new cards to be incorporated into any version of the Munchkin card game.  Included in this fifteen card booster are new monsters, new treasures, and two brand new princess character cards.

Jax just rolled up into Pulp Fiction and he has a new game for you to play.Sons of Anarchy board game

The Sons of Anarchy:  Men of Mayhem board game pits three to four players against each other in a ruthless bid to control the town of Charming.  A tile laying game, at base, Men of Mayhem sees players build the town by placing random tiles to unveil new territory to fight over.  Once a tile has been laid, players can occupy it with one of two biker figures (those on bikes and those on foot).  But get ready for a fight, because other players can compete with you to take over the territory.

Age of WarBrush up on your Sun Tzu before playing the new dice rolling game, Age of War.

From Fantasy Flight, Age of War revolves around castle tiles that are laid in the center of the table, each marked with an assortment of specific symbols.  These symbols match a set of seven dice that are passed around the table and rolled by players.  Each player is assigned a certain amount of castles, ranging from one to four, but then competes to control the other players’ castles by rolling the dice and matching symbols to the ones inside their castles.Doomtown Reloaded

The classic Deadlands card game has been re-envisioned as Doomtown:  Reloaded.

This deck building game operates similarly to Dominion, Resident Evil, Ascension, and all the rest, but with a slight twist.  Players attempt to build their decks around one of four different factions, called Outfits.  Also, during the course of the game, players will face off in shootouts that will be decided, like in poker, by Adventure Time Card Wars Princess Bubblegum Lumpy Space Princessthe suits on the cards in their hands.  So, choosing which cards to play when may decide whether you get gunned down or not.

The World of Ooo expands this weekend with another two player starter set.

Princess Bubblegum vs. Lumpy Space Princess features two complete decks of cards intended to be played against each other, but that can also be pitted against any of the decks from the previous two Card Wars releases.  Bubblegum’s deck uses damage to increase its power while LSP’s is the first two color deck to be released for the game.

Carcassonne Minis expansionCarcassonne gets small this weekend.

Z-Man Games is re-releasing six popular Carcassonne Mini expansions in cheap, redesigned packaging.  Included in the display are (1) Flying Machines, (2) Messengers, (3) Ferries, (4) Gold Mines, (5) Mage & Witch, and (6) Robbers.  Each of these mini expansions can be added to the base version of Carcassonne, adding extra, side mechanics to the regular rules.Carcassonne Hills and Sheep

Usually we wouldn’t tell customers to act like sheep and join the herd, but in the case of Carcassonne: Hills and Sheep that’s exactly what we’re going to recommend.  This expansion contains three distinct tile and meeple additions to the game, including hills (which are placed on top of other tiles), vineyards (which are placed around monasteries), and shepherds (who Star Trek Attack Wing Wave 8are placed in fields and combined with sheep for points).

Star Trek Attack Wing log, star date Wave 7:  Three new ships crest the horizon, ready to charge and fire photons.

Included in this wave are the glossy Enterprise NX-01 for the Federation forces, the Ni’Var cruiser for the Coalition forces, and another figure that makes resistance futile, the Borg Scout Cube.Black Fleet board game

It’s all out war on the high seas in Black Fleet!

A card driven board game, Black Fleet is a pirate game unlike any other.  Players each control three different types of ships, each with their own goals and abilities.  These three types are merchant ships (ferrying goods about), pirate ships (stealing those goods), and Navy ships (that blow-up the pirate ships).  With each player playing all three different types, each game gets heated and strategy heavy very quickly.

Smash Up Big Geeky BoxTired of lugging around all your Smash Up expansions?  Well, AEG has a solution to your woes.

The Big Geeky Box is the newest release for the highly popular card game where players slam together unrelated sci-fi, fantasy, and horror characters (like aliens, ninjas, and dinosaurs) into a single card deck.  The Big Geeky Box is not only an extra sturdy container, big enough to house the original Smash Up game and all of its expansions, but also an expansion, in and of itself.  Contained inside the hefty box is the exclusive Geek and Sundry faction, ready-made to mix in with any of the previous factions.
