My Little Pony Equestria OdysseysNot quite Homer’s epic, Equestrian Odysseys is the newest My Little Pony CCG set to be released!  In this set, cards are themed around quests that have been assigned by Cutie Map.  Fresh new friends like Sugar Belle and The Smooze join all your favorites, and together you’ll battle the Bugbear, journey to Griffonstone, and even save Our Town from new evil-doer Starlight Glimmer.  Alongside the traditional booster packs, there are also two new Theme Decks for Equestrian Odysseys, including Jam Session and Takin’ Care of Business.Zendikar vs Eldrazi Duel Deck

Following on the heels of MtG Origins, the newest Duel Deck is out this weekend!  Zendikar vs. Eldrazi pits the forces of the former against the creatures of the latter.  Within the two complete decks included in the box, there are a number of rare, powerful cards including a new art reprint of Avenger of Zendikar and Primal Command as well as a reprint of It That Betrays.  Outside of that, the Zendikar deck Conquest of Sperosincludes cards that will appear in the upcoming Battle for Zendikar set.

Conquest of Speros is a quick playing game of area control and resource domination for two to four players.  In the game, four competing races work to exercise their dominance over the landscape and to control the export of iron, crystal, and gold as well as securing ownership of the powerful Ancient Artifacts buried from long ago.  Players lead generals and their minions in order to secure lands and battle opponents.Battle Con Light and Shadow

Two expansions drop this weekend for the video game influenced World of Indines games.  First up is Devastation of Indines, which provides an array of options to expand and enhance your BattleCon game.  These include thirty alternate costumes, each possessing their own abilities, and the characters Borneo and Juto.  Also out is the Light and Shadow expansion, Firefly Shiny Dicecontaining sixty EX and Almighty fighters.

Firefly Shiny Dice is the first and only “Press your Luck” style dice game set in the Firefly universe.  Roll up, get a mission and complete as many challenges as you can before your luck runs out.  The further you go, the greater the risk but greater the reward if you succeed.  Get a crew, get a mission, keep flying.Machi Koro Millionaire's Row

Wealth has come to Machi Koro in the game’s most recent expansion, Millionaire’s Row.  Millionaire’s Row adds thirteen new, powerful establishment cards.  With a grand total of forty plus landmarks and establishments, the variability is endless.  It can also be combined with Machi Koro:  Harbor Expansion for an K-Wing X-Wing Star Warseven bigger, bustling city.

Always hotly awaited, the next wave of Star Wars X-Wing ships is thrusting out of lightspeed this weekend.  Including three new smaller ships and one oversized ship, this wave is a force to be reckoned with.  To start with, Bossk’s cruiser the Hound’s Tooth is a major addition to anyone’s Scum faction, as the ship has the capability to launch a smaller ship when it is destroyed.  Also out are the K-Wing, Tie Punisher, and the Kihraxz Fighter.New York 1901

Finally, one of this year’s Gen Con sensations, New York 1901, has hit shelves!  In New York 1901, players will compete to construct the iconic buildings dotting the New York skyline.  On each turn, players will have the option to purchase real estate in order to later construct buildings or to demolish a pre-existing building in order to rebuild on its empty lot.  One of the catches, however, is that building tiles each have a unique shape, one that will need to conform to the real estate you’re wishing to build on.  Outside of the mechanics, the game is vibrant, family friendly, and pleasingly designed.  A must buy for this year.

Chimera card gameAnother challenging twist on the Tichu card game, Chimera delivers a new experience with a similar feel.  In this three player game, you must place your bet and manage your hand wisely in order to trump your opponents.  Play sequential pairs, triplets, and straights, but beware of the Chimera that could ruin your plans.Adorable Pandaring

An overload of cuteness, Adorable Pandaring is a game where you are on a very simple quest:  to have the most adorable pandas!  To succeed, you must cleverly play your panda cards and manipulate the Laws of Adorableness in your favor.  Adorable Pandaring is from Asmadi Games, the makers of We Didn’t Playtest This at All (don’t worry, Kabuki card gamethis game has been thoroughly playtested) and Red 7.

For family members from ages six and up, Kabuki is a memory and set collection game that throws players into the world of Kabuki theater.  Players will pass and trade special mask cards and tokens, but will need to keep a close eye on who has which cards.  But be careful, as many of the masks look similar.Card Wars Lemongrab Gunter Collector's Pack
Get your Ice King on by picking up the newest Adventure Time Card Wars Collector’s Pack featuring Lemongrab and the Ice King’s right-hand cuddly pal, Gunter.  Like previous Collector’s Packs, the Lemongrab vs. Gunter pack contains oversized hero cards for each of those characters, two complete Five Tribes The Artisans of Naqaladecks, landscape tiles, and tons of tokens.
They say that in the very heart of the mountains of the Sultanate of Naqala, there lives a Tribe that rarely appears in the bazaars and markets in town.  They call themselves the Artisans, and they work day and night crafting precious items.  With The Artisans of Naqala expansion for Five Tribes, players gain the titular tribe, artisan meeples, tiles, djinns, and other items to expand Dark Moonyour gaming experience.
Dark Moon deposits players on Saturn’s Titan moon during the throws of a cataclysmic outbreak.  Players will be secretly divided into camps of infected and uninfected.  Not know who is who, this classic deception style game will then task the uninfected with surviving to the end of the game, while the infected covertly attempt to undermine and destroy their opponents.  Players will roll dice to decide actions, such as throwing friends into the quarantine zone, all in the Imperial Assault Twin Shadowseffort of outlasting everyone else.
Imperial Assault delves into the hives of scum and villainy with the Twin Shadows expansion.  New map tiles display dingy Mos Eisley cantinas, the forbidding Jundland Wastes, and even the daunting bridge of a Star Destroyer.  New heroes, items, classes, and more offer depth to any campaign.  In addition, six entirely new missions invite you to play a self-contained mini campaign or expand the breadth of a full campaign.  Even further into a galaxy far, far away, Imperial Assault also saw the release of the Boba Fett, Kayn Somos, and C3PO & R2D2 figure expansions.Mage Knight Shades of Tezla expansion
Another addition to the popular Mage Knight miniature board game, Shades of Tezla is a new character expansion for the base game.  Shades of Tezla introduces a new playable character, Braevalar the Druid, alongside Zombicide Angry Neighborsscenarios for both cooperative and competitive gameplay.
Like the zombie horde players are tasked against in the game, the Zombicide expansions keep coming.  Out this week are the 3 Angry Neighbors Game Tiles, the Ultimate Survivors #1 character pack, VIP #1 and #2 packs, and the Murder of Crowz expansion.On Her Majesty's Service
No, not the Bond movie with George Lazenby, On Her Majesty’s Service is an impressively designed, steampunk influenced miniature board game.  Players must guide their gentlemen through the shifting board that makes up the Shadow Market.  Buying and selling the different kinds of Ethers will allow them to not only gather enough coin to acquire the precious Artefacts demanded by the queen, but also to activate powerful special actions.  Each player is only able to trade using the items and costs listed on the edges of the tiles that are facing them.  As the board is constantly in flux, this can create quite a challenge.

Nextwave complete collectionNextwave Agents of HATE Complete Collection tpb

-Not something we regularly do, but with this collection we’re highlighting a reprint.

-But why do that, you might ask?  Well, simply put:  Nextwave is considered by the Pulp staff to be one of Marvel‘s best comic series ever!

-Written by one of comic’s greats, Warren Ellis (Trees, Planetary, Transmetropolitan), and illustrated by new Star Wars artist, Stuart Immonen, this series is pure perfection!

-One of Marvel‘s funniest comics ever, as a ragtag group of heroes (including Machine Man, Boom-Boom, and Captain F&*!) fight against a SHIELD-esque organization called HATE.  In the course of the series, the group battles Cuddly Wittle Drop Bears of Death, a talking dinosaur, a horny Fing Fang Foom, and, in general, political correctness.

Drive #1 (of 4)Drive

-Based off of the hit novel that inspired Nicholas Winding-Refn’s cult favorite film.

-Cool, neon, neo-noir about desperate criminals, sultry dames, and close calls.

-Adapted from James Sallis’ novel.

-A nameless driver makes the choice to cross a menacing LA mobster.  Who comes out on top is all based on skill.

Zodiac StarforceZodiac Starforce #1

-Dark Horse jumps onto Boom! Studios bandwagon of colorful, manga-influenced, ebullient comics!

-Zodiac Starforce is clearly born out of a nostalgia and love for Power Rangers and Sailor Moon!

-In issue #1, you’ll be introduced to a team of superpowered female fighters who defend the Earth from aliens in-between high school classes.

-Where the twist comes in, though, is that future issues jump into the future, after the ladies are out of school, and must reform the Zodiac Starforce after having broken up.

Batman Arkham Knight Genesis #1 (of 6)Batman Arkham Knight Genesis

-A second prequel miniseries to the Batman Arkham Knight video game!

-Peter J. Tomasi, writer of the main Arkham Knight series, will also be writing Genesis!

-Genesis will reveal the origin of the mysterious Arkham Knight (whose real name will be especially familiar to avid Batman fans).

-Issues will jump back-and-forth between past and present, including one where the will tangle with Harley Quinn in both time periods.
