Netrunner Data Pack The Spaces BetweenDave Matthews must have just been hired on as a game designer at Fantasy Flight, because the newest Netrunner LCG Data Pack is named The Spaces Between.  The second expansion in the Lunar Cycle, The Spaces Between lives up to its name by exploring the limbo status of used up events and operations.  What after effects do these cards have once they are discarded?

Doesn’t matter what class you play in the Pathfinder Adventure Card Game, Paizo has Pathfinder Adventure Card Game Rogue Class Deckyou covered.

This weekend, the publisher is unleashing Class Decks for seven different class types, with each being capable of incorporation into the base Adventure Card Game.  The seven class types presented are the Bard, Cleric, Fighter, Ranger, Rogue, Sorcerer, and Wizard.  Each deck contains 109 cards that apply to four different archetypes for each class and spells, allies, and weapons to be used with any of them.

Pathfinder Adventure Card Game Skull Shackles Raiders of the Fever SeaAlso out for the Pathfinder Adventure Card Game this weekend are the first two card expansions for the Skull and Shackles adventure path.  First up,  the Character Add-On Deck, like with the base game, supplies three entirely new class types, including Witch, Alchemist, and Warpriest, as well as the cards to expand the game up to six players.  Raiders of the Fever Sea is the second expansion, containing 110 cards that introduce five scenarios that progress the adventure, as well as adding loot, monster, location, villain, and ship cards. Run Fight or Die board game

While zombie-based content my vary from television to film to comics to board games, there is only one consistent option when you face them down:  Run, Fight, or Die.  This new board game changes up the growing subgenre of zombie survival board games by pitting each player (1-4) against their own undead horde.  Players race around a special game board attempting to collect supplies and survivors while not being bitten or letting too many followers become zombified.  Those who outlast the rest with the most life survive to fight another day, while those Smash Up Monster Smash expansionwho don’t shamble away into the darkness.

The pun is so obvious it was only a matter of time before AEG released a Smash Up expansion that used it.

Monster Smash (yup, like monster mash) is the newest expansion for the popular card game where players blend together all sorts of different creatures and character types to form one absurd deck.  Included in the expansion are four original factions, each with a movie monster theme to them.  The four are Werewolves, Vampires, Mad Scientists, and, of course, Giant Ants.  Monster Smash can be played as either a two player game or a four player game, if incorporated into the base Smash Up game.   Rebel Aces Star Wars X-Wing

Many Bothans died to bring you the Rebel Aces Star Wars X-Wing expansion.

Like the Imperial Aces expansion, this set comes with two ship miniatures, an alternate paint job A-Wing and B-Wing, along with four original pilot characters and all the standard maneuver cards, tokens, and upgrade cards.  In addition, the set comes with a special mission suited to the skills of both ships.

Pathfinder Adventure Time Card Game PlaymatThe Pathfinder Adventure Card Game gets organized this weekend, thanks to a new playmat.

Featuring a layout that helps to show new and old players how to arrange the various important cards piles.  As well as being a guide for placement, the mat also helps organize the game (heading off clutter) and keep the cards from shifting about the table.  The layout is made to cover up to six players.Villainy

With the superheroes getting all the love in games like Sentinels of the Multiverse, Legendary, and Heroes Wanted, it’s time for the bad guys to have their day!  Villainy puts players into the role of a supervillain attempting to destroy the hero of the metropolis they call home.  In order to do this players will need to complete three distinct secret plans, made possible by hiring henchmen.  Each game plays Khans of Tarkir Card Sleevesdifferent, as the objectives and story alters.

Many readers out there will know that this weekend was the Magic the Gathering prerelease event for Khans of Tarkir, the start of the newest card block.  Anyone who knows this will also likely know that means the sleeves, binders, and card boxes for the set are also out.  Boosters, fat pack, and intro Talisman Woodlandsdecks will go on sale next Friday.

Over the hill and through the woods to Talisman‘s expansion we go.

Another large sized expansion for the Talisman 4th Edition board game, The Woodland provides an entire new board to place adjacent to the main board, five new characters, and an added fate mechanic that gives you the option of bettering Hour of the Wolf Warhammer 40K Sanctus Reachyour chances or lessening those of an opponent.

The sequel to the recently released Warhammer 40K Red Waaagh! hardcover, The Hour of the Wolf, is out this weekend.  Contained within its glossy, hardcover-bound pages are details on various skirmishes between the Orc and Space Wolf factions, along with formation templates and more.

The major Warhammer release this weekend, however, is a blast from the past.Space Hulk Warhammer 40K

Once again, Games Workshop has re-released the classic 40K universe board game, Space Hulk.  If you remember the last time this game was released, you’ll also remember the incredibly short amount of time it stayed on shelves and the astronomic price hikes that occurred after it vanished.  This new version comes complete with the same miniatures and accessories as the last, but with one important alteration.  The 2014 version includes an entirely new set of tiles, allowing players who own the previous version to combine them and create one, Five Tribes board gameover-sized game board.

Days of Wonder, publisher of Ticket to Ride, Smallworld, and Cargo Noir, has released a new board game designed by Bruno Cathala (Shadows Over Camelot).  Five Tribes is a meeple placement game, but in reverse.  The game begins with a selection of meeple figures, each from one of the five titular tribes, arranged across the board and it is the players’ challenge to rearrange them.  How they are moved and where they are moved is the strategic challenge of Five Tribes, with the best player gaining the most points from their movements.Netrunner First Contact Data Pack

The third Data Pack in the Lunar Cycle of the Android Netrunner LCG has been downloaded to the Pulp Fiction shelves this weekend.  First Contact’s sixty card expansion intensifies the conflict between the runners and the corps on a number of fronts.  A new meat space is introduced along with new regions, Anarch identities, traps, resources, and mythic ice.

Star Wars Force and DestinyFinally, the force is strong with you.

Fantasy Flight expands its roleplaying galaxy far, far away with the Force and Destiny Beta softcover, a third  system to add to the Edge of the Empire and Age of Rebellion systems.  This long awaited edition incorporates force based abilities into the universe, providing information on character creation and a fully playable adventure.  And because this system is set in the same universe as the two previous systems, they are all fully compatible.Chinatown

Long out-of-print and going for insane money online, Chinatown has been revived by Z-Man Games.  A truly antagonistic experience, Chinatown is based around bidding, bartering, and negotiating with your opponents.  Players attempt to lay business tiles onto the game board, hoping to group as many like tiles together as the can for greater payouts.  But players can also attempt to convince others to sell or trade for tile Monster Manual D&D 5th Edition Next HCand spaces, requiring a sharp skill for salesmanship and strategic dealing.

Eagerly awaited, the second major core hardcover for Dungeons and Dragons 5.0 is out this week!

The Monster Manual for D&D Next follows hot on the heels of the Player’s Handbook, containing beasties and creatures from the long history of the famous fantasy roleplaying game, all illustrated with beautiful new artwork and provided with easy-to-use rules and statistics.  An essential volume for any Dungeon Master.
