Tokaido MatsuriThe road grows ever longer with the newest Tokaido expansion. Tokaido Matsuri requires both the base Tokaido game and the Crossroads expansion, but combining all three of them allows players to stop off at the Matsuri or festival. Triggered by the arrival of the Travelers at the intermediate inns, these additions puncture the path with new and unique events. Additionally, the expansion adds sixteen new travelers.Firefly Tall Card

Straight out of the verse, Firefly Tall Card is the authentic card game played by the crew of the Serenity. With rules and artwork taken from the game played by the crew, Tall Card contains over forty five core cards along with an additional fifty cards that allow players to design their own variations on the game. Stick a few rounds of Tall Card in between games of The Firefly Board Game and you’ll practically be a real space smuggler.

Monopoly CthulhuPulp doesn’t often go in for Monopoly games, but when we came across an H.P. Lovecraft inspired version, we couldn’t resist. In the Cthulhu edition of Monopoly, the mythos of Lovecraft comes to life as you travel the board facing elder gods such as Dagon, Yog-Sothoth, and Azathoth. Collect the most insanity points to win the game! Of course, the traditional Monopoly pieces have been replaced, this time with a Cthulhu statuette, the Dagon Dagger, the Necronomicon, and more.

Back to the verse, we have Firefly: Fistful of Credits. A two to four player Firefly Fistful of Creditscooperative game, Fistful of Credits has players stepping into the boots of the Serenity’s crew to pull off a series of dangerous heists in order to gain fortune. The game features three distinct heist scenarios, inspired by the episodes Bushwacked, The Train Job, and Ariel, each with their own highly-detailed board, tokens, and heist cards. Players pair up any two of the nine crew members, to form teams that must race against the clock to complete the job.

Megaman The Board GameFans of retro gaming, pay heed to Mega Man the Board Game, out this weekend. The Blue Bomber must battle against Dr. Wily and his nefarious robots in this adventure board game for two to six players. In the game, players will take control of Mega Man, traversing the gameboard in a similar fashion to classic levels. Of course, the real exciting characteristic of the game is that it includes fully painted models of all your favorite Mega Man characters! And if you have more than six friends wanting to play, just wait a couple of months for the forthcoming Time Man and Oil Man expansion that will increase the total number of players to eight!

Midnighter v.1 tpbMidnighter v.1 tpb 

-One of DC‘s most underrated, under read series being released right now!  Now’s your chance to catch up.

-Midnighter is a Batman-esque anti-hero from the former Wildstorm universe, but, unlike Batman, Midnighter has no reservations about punching his fist literally through someone’s face.

-Writer Steve Orlando crafts a wonderful slow build story where Midnighter juggles his dating life (after recently having broken up with his boyfriend) and the apprehension of wayward weapons he was supposed to protect.

-Each aspect is brought to explosively stylistic life by the unique art style of Aco; trust me, it looks nothing like any series you’re currently reading.

Snowfall #1Snowfall

-From an established creative duo, Snowfall is the newest ongoing series launched from Image Comics!

-Part pulp, part dystopic future, part superhero story, Snowfall blends genres for a comic experience you won’t find at either of the major two companies.

-Set in a world that has not experienced snow in decades and also suffers under the rule of a despotic corporate entity, the series sees a hero, named the White Wizard, rise from obscurity to battle oppression.

-Martin Morazzo’s detailed, dynamic artwork brings this alternate world to life!

Avengers Standoff Welcome to Pleasant HillAvengers Standoff: Welcome to Pleasant Hill #1

-Avid readers of Marvel‘s various Avengers series will want to check this prelude issue out!

-The Avengers Standoff event will crossover all of the Avengers series, including New Avengers, Uncanny Avengers, Illuminati, and more.

-Written by Nick Spencer, the current writer of both the Astonishing Ant-Man and Sam Wilson Captain America, this tie-in event will feature three eras of Cap joining forces.

-When Bucky Barnes appears to have attacked a S.H.I.E.L.D. facility, Steve Rogers is left with the job of capturing him.  Will Steve and Bucky’s friendship get in the way?  Will Sam Wilson have to be the voice of reason?

Power Man and Iron Fist #1Power Man and Iron Fist

-In preparation of Marvel‘s next two Netflix original series, the Power Man and Iron Fist ongoing returns these two heroes to their for hire heyday.

-David Walker, the acclaimed author behind the recent Shaft comics and DC‘s Cyborg series, jumps to Marvel.

-Walker is accompanied by Sanford Greene, a rising talent who’s exaggerated, caricature-ish style is brimming with energy and character.

-Danny and Luke get engulfed by the New York crime scene as they track down a magical stone that threatens to destroy the city.

Mafia VendettaFantasy Flight is getting in deep with the family.  A spin on the classic Mafia card game, Mafia:  Vendetta is a deception game in the vein of Bang! and Ultimate Werewolf.  However, in Mafia:  Vendetta, players are attempting to weed out the mobbed up individuals within the group.  Over the rounds, players will pose accusations in an effort to uncover the covert culprits, but players will also be eliminated, slowly parring down the number of players.A Game of Thrones Road to Winterfell chapter pack

Adding cards twenty-one to forty of the Westeros cycle, The Road to Winterfell is a chapter pack of sixty new cards for the A Game of Thrones LCG.  These cards are meant to augment existing decks and add variety to the base game and expansions from the series.

Pixel Tactics DeluxeMuch like Smash Up’s Big Geeky Box, Pixel Tactics Deluxe simultaneously acts as an expansion, a base game, and a container for your cards.  In addition to a complete set of never-before seen heroes, Pixel Tactics Deluxe gives you a large storage box to keep your whole collection in one, a bonus minipak expansion, and a big rulebook that introduces new play modes, including Large-Group League Play.  Deluxe is also fully playable on its own, but combining multiple Pixel Tactics games together gives you a ton of new ways to play.The End of the World Alien Invasion

Another in the popular The End of the World RPG series, Alien Invasion drops this weekend.  Like the other apocalypse scenarios, Alien Invasion has players actually playing themselves in the campaign, with the stats to reflect their own (so you might want to start training now).  Outside of the instructions for the rule system, this hardcover volume also includes character creation rules and five different scenarios that homage various alien invasion plots (such as giant Villains Sentintels of the Multiverseinsects, alien infiltration, and the class flying saucers).

Everyone knows that the bad guys have all the fun in comic books, so Sentinels of the Multiverse is giving players a chance to experience what it’s like to be villainous.  Villains of the Multiverse is a mega expansion for the game, using the villain team gameplay mechanics introduced in Sentinels of the Multiverse:  Vengeance to group villains together as a team fighting against a hero team.  Ten new villains are included, which can be faced in any configuration, as well as four new environments.Pokemon Breakpoint booster

Much like Magic the Gathering, a new Pokemon set is always a moment for celebration if you’re an avid CCG player.  Pokemon Breakpoint is the newest set, including 120 cards that expand on the storyline regarding the rift between worlds.  In addition to the regular booster pack release, there is also a Elite Training Box for the set that includes eight booster packs, card sleeves, dice, tokens, and a card box with King's Forgedividers.

Somewhere between Quarriors and a resource management game, King’s Forge is a fantasy-based dice game for two to four players.  In the game, players will collect and utilize various different dice to build items or trade for better dice.  In order to do this, players will traverse nineteen realms, each with their own dice opportunities, and decide whether to keep their dice or construct one of thirty-two different creations.  And if that sounds slightly disorganized, don’t worry, because this edition also comes with a game board to help organize everything.Cat Tower

Cats are big business in the gaming world right now, so IDW has jumped on the bandwagon with Cat Tower.  This dexterity game is not only extremely cute, but also an excellent party game.  For two to six players, Cat Tower involves the stacking of foldable cat cards, much like a furry Jenga.  The order and position of the cats is decided by the roll of a die, but do be careful rolling that die, because each fallen cat goes directly into the guilty player’s deck.  The more you have, the less points you gain.
