It Binds All Things Star Wars LCGTonight’s New Game Stuff is gonna begin with a little list action, because Fantasy Flight drop new Netrunner Upstalk Data Packexpansion packs for nearly every Living Card Game line they publish.

So, *deep breath*, there is the It Binds All Things Force Pack for the Star Wars LCG, there is The Three Trials Lord of the Rings LCGthe Upstalk Data Pack for Netrunner, there is The Prize of the North Chapter Pack for the A Game of Thrones LCG, and The Three Trials for the Lord of the Rings LCG, all of A Game of Thrones LCG The Prize of the Northwhich contain sixty new cards.

The popular and creatively named train game, Trains, gains its first pack map this weekend.  Map Pack 1 (wow, who is naming these things?) contains a double-sided board, with one side featuring Germany and the other the Northeastern section of the United States.  These now allow players to expand their railways into Trains Map Pack 1other countries.

Rio Grande Games also expands the clauses and addendums to the Last Will board game with the Getting Sacked expansion.  Adding more obstacles to the already difficult process of attaining your late Uncle’s fortune, Getting Sacked requires players Last Will Getting Sackedto find a way to lose their job as well as find a good, honest, money spending wife.  Each expansion option is included in this one set, but you will need the base game to begin.

They may not run as smoothly as race cars, they may not take turns as well, and they may poop on the track, but elephants will get you where you need to go.  Formula E is a variation on the Formula Epopular Formula D racing game, but featuring pachyderms instead of cars.  Players will lay down movement, obstacle, and other types of cards in order to move their ride around the track, blocking out other players in order to get ahead.

With a rules update comes a new version of the Warhammer 40K starter set. Dark Vengeance Warhammer 40K starter This weekend the Dark Vengeance starter box is out again, but with some updates.  Still included are the templates, dice, and full armies for Space Marines and Chaos Space Marines, along with a condensed rulebook, but now with updates for the new rule set.  The unique figure for this set, however, is Vrosh Tattersoul, and entirely new miniature for the Chaos Space Marines faction.

Bodies #1Bodies #1 (of 8)

-Like a British version of True Detective.

-Si Spencer, the British writer of various Judge Dredd, Hellblazer, and Doctor Who comics, weaves a decade spanning crime mystery.

-Bodies is set in four different time periods, ranging from the 1890s to 2050, each with their own detective attempting to solve a homicide.

-Each time period is also drawn by a different artist, giving a distinct tone to each story.

Hugh Howey’s Wool #1 (of 6)Hugh Howey's Woold #1

-A graphic novel adaptation of the New York Times bestselling novel!

-What began as a single short story has grown into a series of novellas and now a comic book adaptation.

-The story takes place in a post-apocalyptic world where the remnants of society live in a 100-story deep silo.  Or is it that simple?  Wool is a story of nearly constant twists and turns, leaving the reader desperate for answers.

-Justin Gray and Jimmy Palmiotti (Jonah Hex, All-Star Western, Harley Quinn) and Jimmy Broxton (Knight and Squire) are handling the adaptation, with Darwyn Cooke on covers.

Chew Warrior Chicken Poyo #1Chew Warrior Chicken Poyo #1

-Everyone’s favorite secret agent chicken is back!

-The Chew guys don’t skimp on one-shots, as both John Layman and Rob Guillory are not passing writing and art duties off to fill-in creators.

-The last Poyo one shot vanished off the shelves nearly as quick as it arrived, making it a sought after collectible

-Adding to the collector’s value of this issue, Poyo crosses paths with Robert Kirkman’s Walking Dead cast, so you know that’s going to have some after-market value.

Low #1Low #1

-Another new series from Rick Remender, who after Black Science, Captain America, Uncanny Avengers, and Marvel‘s upcoming Axis miniseries, is on a creative roll!

-Basically, a Bioshock comic book series.

-Low takes place on an Earth that has been so irradiated by the explosion of our sun that humanity has moved under the ocean for protection.

-Greg Tocchini’s gorgeous painterly artwork adds another beautiful comic series to the already populated list of capably illustrated Image Comics series.

D&D Dungeons Dragons Icons of the Realms Starer Set MiniaturesSince most of tonight’s post is mostly populated by Magic the Gathering product, we’ll start out with the two non-Magic related items.

First up, is the second item release for Dungeons & Dragons aka D&D Next aka D&D 5.0 is out this weekend.  The Icons of the Realm miniature set for the D&D Starter Set includes pre-painted miniatures for each of the six character classes, including cleric, fighter, wizard, and more.

The second non-Magic release for the week is the new Stormclaw box set for Stormclaw 40K WarhammerWarhammer 40K.

Acting like a semi-starter kit, Stormclaw features two playable armies, one for Orks, one for Space Wolves.  Outside of a condensed, digest sized version of the 40K core rules, the box set also includes an exclusive Stormclaw campaign booklet and two exclusive figures for each army.  Grukk Face-Rippa, for the Orks, and Krom Dragongaze, for Space Wolves, also come with rules for play.

M15 Core Set 2015 Fat Pack BoostersNow to the Magic stuff.

In case you’ve been asleep for a month or so, the 2015 Core Set for Magic the Gathering is out.  As is the case with all set releases for Magic, the standard booster boxes, Fat Packs, and Intro Decks have been released.  Fat Packs contain nine booster packs of M15, two mini-deck boxes, one larger one, a spindown counter, and more.  Intro Decks are pre-built sixty card decks and two booster packs.M15 Core Set Clash Pack 2015

For the first time, Wizards has also released a Two-Player Clash Pack.  This dual deck set includes two entirely pre-built, playable decks, making it perfect for two friends to pick up and play.  Similar to the previously released Event Decks, the Clash Pack contain a number of high dollar MtG Core Set M15 Sleevesrares, including Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, Temple of Mystery, Genesis Hydra, and  Courser of Kruphix.
Finally, if you’re going to be gaining a ton of new M15 singles, you’re going to want sleeves to go with them.  Each of the six major Planeswalkers for the set have each received the sleeve treatment, so no matter what color you play, Wizards has you covered.  As well, new playmats and binders have also been released.
