Hidden Agenda Hostile Intent ResistanceIndie Board Games has enlisted two new expansion for The Resistance.

The popular bluffing game adds its first two expansions in Hidden Agendas and Hostile Intent.  Hidden Agendas adds three entirely new modules of play to the game, including Assassin, Defector, and Trapper.  Hostile Intent also adds three separate modules, including Hunter, Reverser, and Inquisitor.Flashpoint Honor Duty

Among the many popular cooperative games on the market today, Flash Point is certainly the hottest (yes, I made that pun on purpose).  Flash Point:  Fire Rescue Honor and Duty, like the previous expansion, includes two new double-sided game boards.  Among these new scenarios are an airplane fire mission and a subway train disaster.  Keep in mind, a copy of the base game is Ninja Dicerequired.

Since the dawn of the art of ninjitsu, an ancient artform has passed from generation to generation.  It’s name?  Ninja Dice!  Okay, so maybe it’s not that ancient, but this push-your-luck dice game (similar to Zombie Dice and Martian Dice) has players taking on the role (or is that roll?) of a ninja.  By rolling dice, players establish a scenario they are attempting to sneak into, then roll another set of dice to determine how they will accomplish the goal.Dungeons Dragons Attack Wing Wave 2

Hot on the wings of the first series of Dungeons & Dragons Attack Wing miniatures, Wizards of the Coast has released a second series.  Out this weekend, Attack Wing Series Two includes the Black Shadow Dragon, Movanic Deva Angel, and Aarakocra Troop expansion Star Trek Attack Wing Borg Cubepacks.  Each of these miniature packs include cards and all other materials to incorporate the figure into the base game.

Resistance is futile.  If you’re a die hard Trekkie (which means you’re likely a die hard Star Trek Attack Wing player), then you’re going to have to get a copy of the oversized Borg Cube miniature that releases this weekend.  Like the Deep Space Nine model that came out a couple weeks back, this miniature is to scale with the other Attack Wing miniatures.Holiday Fluxx

Just in time to save those awkward post-diner moments at every family’s holiday party, Loony Labs has released another new version of their popular card game, Fluxx.  Holiday Fluxx, like the other versions of Fluxx, throws players into a scenario where win conditions and rules change every turn.  Cards for this version of the game are themed toward not only winter holidays, like Hanukkah and Christmas, but also Mice and Mystics Downwood TalesHalloween, Arbor Day, Thanksgiving, and New Year’s Eve.

The adventures of the valiant mice knights of Mice and Mystics continues in the second expansion for the popular narrative board game, Downwood Tales.  Included in this hefty addition are a selection of new villains, characters, and story options to continue the adventures of the previous two games.  Among the new characters is a crafty gecko named Jakobe.Firefly RPG Things Don't Go Smooth

If you’re a captain in the verse, the obstacles that crop up between you and something shiny are numerous and varied.  The first supplemental sourcebook for the Firefly RPG, Things Don’t Go Smooth, focuses on these obstacles, detailing four additional types of villainous bosses as well as over fifty distinctions and assets, enemy boats, and two additional Star Wars Imperial Assault“episodes” to play through.  Keep flying.

Fantasy Flight had such a success with Descent: Journeys in the Dark that they decided to take the mechanics to a galaxy far, far away.  Star Wars Imperial Assault is the fourth major gaming release from Fantasy Flight that uses the Star Wars license.  In this epic board game, players take on the roles of either the Galactic Empire or the Rebel forces.  These two factions are distinguished by two separate game modes (Campaign and Skirmish) that each play differently for up to five players.  Fans of the classic Hero Quest system will find numerous similarities within Imperial Assault.
