Not 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.
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 includes 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.
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, containing 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.
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 even 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.
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.
