-Dynamite‘s best ongoing series receives its first collection!

-Working off of Ellis’ minimalist scripts, artist Jason Masters delivers panel layouts and action sequences that are gorgeously paced and inventively illustrated.

New Game Stuff, what?  Where have you been?  I know, I know.

Cultists and CthulhusIt’s hard to find good help if you’re a cultist nowadays.  Or, at least, that’s what Cultists & Cthulhus would have you believe.  Brimming with the nerdy, cynically tinged humor shared by Munchkin and Chez Geek, Cultists & Cthulhus has players controlling rival cult leaders.  Each player attempts to round up followers, enact rituals, and (with hope) summon their very own old one.  Any two to eight Lovecraft fans will have a great time when they pick up a copy of Cultists & Cthulhus.My Little Pony Marks in Time booster

Eventually, every popular nerd series delves into time travel.  It’s just an unwritten rule.  Well, My Little Pony ventures into that timey wimey realm with the newest expansion set for the MLP collectible card game, Marks in Time.  Since the set is themed around time travel and alternate realities, players will find updated, younger, or irregular versions of classic cards and ponies in the set.

Agricola RevisedWait, Agricola?  That’s been out forever.  But there you would be wrong.  For one, Agricola has been out of print for a good deal a time, so having any version back in print is a good thing.  Second, this version of the game is an updated and revised edition.  Agricola Revised now features wooden game pieces and a streamlined rulebook that allows the game to play quicker and easier for younger players.  Fans of Settlers of Catan, San Juan, and Puerto Rico, if you’ve never played Agricola, now is the time.Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Dice Masters TMNT

Long awaited by all heroes in a half-shell, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Dicemasters set is finally out!  This oversized base set includes enough materials for two or four players, depending on how you divide the resources.  Featuring the artwork and character designs from various eras of TMNT, the game is playable by all ages.  As the game features the same popular mechanics of Quarriors and the other Dicemasters editions, TMNT Dicemasters can be combined with any of the previous sets.  So, if you want Star Wars Galactic Ambitions expansonyou can have Leonardo face off against Spider-Man and Harley Quinn!

Another in the line of beloved Star Wars The Card Game expansions, Galactic Ambitions is out this weekend.  Featuring five new objective sets for both the Sith and Rebel factions, Galactic Ambitions is a major addition to the base game.  Not only do the Sith and Rebel factions receive new objectives, but every other faction also gains one extra objective set.  Among those new cards, there is not only another version of Darth Vader, but also Star Wars Rebels‘ Kanan Jarrus!Eternal Masters Magic the Gathering

Finally, if you’re a Magic player and haven’t been living under a rock in the realm of Zendikar, you’ll have been salivating for the release of Eternal Masters.  Out this weekend, Eternal Masters is the follow-up to the two Modern Masters sets that raised such a fuss in the Magic world.  Reprinting cards from the very beginning of Magic the Gathering, but in never-before-seen foil versions, this set is seriously desired by any die hard Magic player.  Boxes are limited and the price point will rise swiftly as the set goes out of print, so grab what you can, while you can.
