Via NebulaThis week Asmodee has sent a call out to all builders and artisans to help dispel the mists of Nebula! In Via Nebula, the citizens of the valley need your help opening paths through the terrifying mists in order to help reclaim and rebuild their homes. Cooperation with other players will expedite this process, but don’t forget about your own selfish objectives. Fulfilling contracts with the region’s citizens will bring you both gold and glory, but obliging their demands in a timely and efficient fashion is what will help you to defeat the other players!

Mystic ValeNew this week is one of AEG’s (Love Letter, Smash Up) most-hyped games! Mystic Vale is a 2-4 player “Card-Crafting” Deck builder, in which players take on the roles of druids attempting to cleanse their tainted homelands. Many have played deck builders where you spend resources crafting together the perfect stack of cards, but in Mystic Vale players get to build the cards themselves. With expansions already in the works, do not miss out on this unique and exciting game!

Ascension, War of ShadowsWhile on the topic of deck building games, the grandfather of them all has a new expansion out! Ascension, War of Shadows pushes players into reawakening heroes and constructs of the past and throws some new mechanics in with it. As the balance between light and dark shifts, cards gain additional powers depending on whether it is day or night. Play this as a stand-alone 1-4* player game, or combine War of Shadows with other Ascension games to play up to 6 players.

Castles of Burgandy Card GameIt’s easy to get stuck inside in the hot summer sun, daydreaming of a better time. Instead of embracing the misery, try reliving the Renaissance with a new and portable take on a Stefan Feld classic! The Castles of Burgundy Card game provides two players the opportunity to propel their European estates into prosperity through strategic trade and commerce! In true Stefan Feld fashion: Tiny Box, Lots of decisions.

Smallworld Pocket EncyclopediaWe know everyone is working to flesh out their Pokedex on Pokemon Go, but this weekend Days of Wonder is dropping their own encyclopedia for Small World.  The Small World Pocket Encyclopedia is a must-buy for all of the Small World purists and collectors out there.  A smartly designed, pocket sized  hardcover volume, the Small World Pocket Encyclopedia contains not only a full set of easy-access rules for the game, but also an FAQ, designer notes, and, most importantly, sixty-three individual entries detailing every race and special power from the base game and all of the expansions.The Grizzled At Your Order

Only the truly rough, tough, and resilient survived during the Great War.  The same applies to The Grizzled.  A strategic cooperative card game set during World War I, The Grizzled receives its first expansion set this weekend.  At Your Orders! provides additional special missions for players to complete during gameplay, both in experienced and novice versions to satisfy new and old gamers alike.  Even more exciting, At Your Orders! also provides expanded rulesets for two player or solo play for the original base game.

Stellar ConflictLike an expanded, card game version of Galaga, Stellar Conflict is another card game set in the Among the Stars universe.  Taking place over two tense, speedy rounds, Stellar Conflict plays for ten minutes with two to four players.  In round one, players swiftly select ships from a variety of options, choosing them based off of their abilities and availability.  Once that round is complete, these ships are deployed against an invading fleet of alien cruisers that must be vanquished by the armada you have chosen.  Hopefully you haven’t chosen poorly.Mysterium Hidden Signs

You thought you’d solved the mystery and escaped the Mysterium.  You were wrong.  Mysterium:  Hidden Signs is the first expansion for the popular horror tinged game, Mysterium.  Expanding the options and gameplay, this set includes six suspects, six locations, and six objects to deepen the gameplay.  Forty-two new vision cards are also included in order to provide players with a range of new communication options.  Also, if you manage to grab the first printing of this expansion, you’ll receive three promo cards that can be used in the base game.

Rick and Morty Total RickallCryptozoic capitalizes on the extreme popularity of Adult Swim‘s Rick and Morty series with the first card game based on the show.  Featuring a quick learning curve, Rick and Morty:  Total Rickall plays well with two to five players over the course of twenty to thirty minutes.  Always ready to skewer pop culture, Rick and Morty:  Total Rickall is a play off of The Thing, with Rick and Morty attempting to cleanse their house of shapshifting parasites that have disguised themselves as friends and family.  Work your way through these opponents, but be careful not to eliminate the real versions!Kitty Paw

There is never enough cute cat games in the world.  Proving that fact, Kitty Paw is a new dexterity and reaction game out this weekend.  For audiences young and old, Kitty Paw is a one to four player game that can take anywhere from fifteen to thirty minutes to play.  In the game, players rush to draw and play various cat cards in order to match a designated pattern assigned at the beginning of the round.  Of course, that’s too simple.  Players also will be forced to use only one “cat paw” when drawing and playing X-Wing Star Wars Imperial Veteransthese cards as well as pulling from the same draw pile as all other players.

Be ready to get those Tie-Fighter sound effects stuck in your head, because Fantasy Flight has just released another Empire expansion for the X-Wing miniature game.  In Imperial Veterans, players receive two ships, the Crimson Tie and the Tie-Bomber.  The former is all about nimble movement and swift attacking, while the latter hits opponents with a painful barrage of explosives.  This expansion contains all of the materials for players to use either or both ships in their next X-Wing game.
