Alchemists board gameA recurring trend in board gaming lately is the incorporation of phone apps into the mechanics of the game.  Alchemists is the newest example of this tactic as players compete as rival alchemists attempting to publish successful formulas.  An app randomizes the possible outcomes for each formula every time the game is played, resulting in a unique play experience on every replay.

Fans of Akira Kurosawa’s magnum opus, Seven Samurai, should take a look at one of Samurai Stylethe newest cooperative gaming experiences on the market, Samurai Spirit.  In this co-op card game, one to seven players take on the roles of brave samurai defending a poor farming village.  Over the course of multiple turns, each player must decide whether to fight a bandit, defend the village, or aid another samurai.  The delicacy of the game is coordinating a balance between the actions every player takes.  Too many bandits will be let through if the team aids each other too often, but other samurai may perish if they’re not helped.  These are the decisions that will lead to victory.

Batman Love LetterLast week we had Hobbit Love Letter, this week is Batman Love Letter.  Another version of the highly popular card game, like Hobbit Love Letter, actually changes up the gameplay.  In this version of the game, the point values per card remain the same, but the goal is to “capture” the highest cost villain at the end of the round.  The deck is comprised of famous Batman baddies like The Joker, Scarecrow, Harley Quinn, and some good guys, too, like Batman and Robin.

Finally tonight, we’ll venture off into a galaxy far, far away.  After the well received arrival of the StaImperial Assault expansion packsr Wars Imperial Assault miniature battle game, Fantasy Flight has been quick to turn some individual miniature expansion packs.  Each of these Ally and Villain Packs contain an individual miniature accompanied by new missions to run and unique cards.  Out these weekend on the Ally side are Han Solo, Chewbacca, rebel sabetours, and rebel troopers and on the Villain side are IG-88, General Weiss, and the Royal Guard Champion.

Miami Vice RemixMiami Vice Remix #1 (of 5)

-Feel it coming in the air tonight!

-Crockett and Tubbs are back, but unlike they’ve ever been before!

-Indy artist dandy, Jim Mahfood, takes on art duties for the five issue miniseries, providing a surreal, distorted look to the eighties, Florida landscape.

-Joining Mahfood on creative duties is Joe Casey (Sex, Captain Victory and the Galactic Rangers, Godland).

Pastaways #1Pastaways

-Hot on the heels of Mark Millar’s Chrononauts, Dark Horse launches their own time travel ongoing!

-Matt Kindt (Mind MGMT, The Valiant) is the writer on this series, bringing his talent for complicated, dense storytelling to the intricate subject of time.

-A band of time agents crash lands in 2015, tearing open a temporal rift and unleashing all the terrors of every era, past and future!

-Scott Kolins (The Flash) fleshes this madness out with his hyper detailed, kinetic style.

Jem and the HologramsJem and the Holograms #1

-Everything old is new again, as another eighties property is revived for a new era!

-Based off of the cult favorite cartoon, Jem and the Holograms is about four girls rocking out as the most intense band in the land.

-Jerrica Benton and her sister live their daily life as socialites, but rock their nights out as members of Jem and the Holograms!

-Ross Campbell, famous indy artist of Wet Moon, lends his talents for facial expressions and realistic body types to this fem-power series from IDW!

Big Thunder Mountain Railroad #1 (of 5)Big Thunder Mountain Railroad

-After Figment and Seekers of the Weird, Disney and Marvel have teamed-up once again for this miniseries event!

-Written by local author and Pulp Fiction’s own, Dennis Hopeless, this Western miniseries blends modern sensibilities with classic genre action!

-Teen angst in the 1800s is a very different thing, as Abigail Bulion, daughter of a wealthy and wicked mine owner, strikes back at her father by trying to rob him of everything he’s worth!

-Of course, it wouldn’t be a Disney/Marvel venture without some supernatural elements, so the mine isn’t without a few ghosts and goblins.

Shadowrun Crossfire Character Expansion Pack 1Like that extra cybernetic eye you had installed last week, the Shadowrun Crossfire Character Expansion Pack 1 extends the usability of the Shadowrun Crossfire Deck Building Game.  Included in this reasonably priced expansion pack are twenty entirely new runner cards, four basic cards, and one hundred (you read that right!) upgrade stickers.The Hobbit Love Letter

If you thought Love Letter had a lot of variations before, then you’ll be shocked to find out another one has hit the shelves.  Love Letter The Hobbit overlays the world of J.R.R. Tolkein’s Middle Earth onto the mechanics of this incredibly popular card game.  However, this version of Love Letter provides a twist on the previous versions as players struggle to locate the Arkenstone before Smaug catches on.

Dungeons Dragons Collector's Series Drow War PartyDungeon and Dragons miniatures have not been prevalent after the dissolution of fourth edition, but Wizards of the Coast and Gale Force Nine are changing that this weekend.  The D&D Collector’s Series of miniatures is an extremely limited edition set of unpainted miniature figures to be used in the roleplaying game.  In the initial line are an Eye Tyrant Beholder, Lolth Demon Queen of Spiders, a Illithid Raiding Party, and Drow War Party.Legendary Fear Itself expansion

Another mini expansion for the popular Marvel Deck Building Game, Legendary, is out this weekend.  Legendary Fear Itself incorporates characters from the comic event of the same name, each of which is empowered by an Asgardian hammer akin to Thor‘s Mjolnir.  Included in the expansion are one hundred playable cards, six allies, one commander (Uru-Harlequins CodexEnchanted Iron Man), one adversary group, and three new plots.

The violent tricksters of Warhammer 40K receive their own hardcover codex this weekend.  The awaited Harlequin Codex has arrived, including in its glossy pages a detailed history of the faction, a gallery of paint schemes and miniature options, a comprehensive army list, and an appendix full of rules for fielding the armies of the Harlequin faction.Dungeons Dragons Battle for Faerun Dice Masters

Wizards of the Coast and Asmodee have joined forces to produce the newest version of Dice Masters on the market.  Battle for Faerun is a Dungeon and Dragons themed version of Dice Masters where sets of dice represent characters and creatures from the popular roleplaying game.  Working like a deck building game but with dice, players assemble teams by purchasing assortments dice.  Out this weekend is a two player starter set and the standard Pretty Pretty Smash Up expansionbooster pack assortment.

Objectively the most amazing expansion pack for the Smash Up card game to date, Pretty Pretty Smash Up is out this weekend.  Basically, the grungy, spooky, monstrous factions have had their day in Smash Up and now it’s time for some cute and cuddly options.  Included within this box are four entirely new factions, including Kitty Cats (featuring some familiar furry faces from the Internet), Princesses, Fairies, and, for all the Bronies out there, Mythic Horses.  All your vampires, pirates, and Cthulhus don’t stand a chance!
