Cthulhu cultists have demanded their own version of Monopoly for years and now they have it!

The Doom that Came to Atlantic City is a variant on the classic Parker Brothers game, but with the twist that players take control of a Great Old One invading the world, attempting to take it over.  The catch is there’s competition.  The classic Monopoly board is homaged with this game’s design, changing the goal to “capturing” gates.   

Kobold PressMidgard setting receives three separate hardcovers this weekend, including the Midgard Tales HC, which collects a large selection of adventures in the setting, the Midgard Bestiary, including all forms of monster and beastie for the setting, and the 13th Age companion, which is compatible with the 13th Age system.  All of these books are also compatible with the Pathfinder roleplaying system.

The Imperial Guards receive a redux this weekend with the Militarum Tempestus forces.

Out this weekend are the Militarum Tempestus Scions (which can be augmented into the command squadron) and the Militarum Tempestus Taurox.

Classic dungeon crawling adventuring is combined with mix-and-match optioning with the throw-back RPG system, Dungeon World.  A successful Kickstarter product, Dungeon World is an approachable role playing system that is contained in a single book that allows players to assemble, altered, remove, and augment rules, classes, races, NPCs, monsters, and more.  A great introductory fantasy RPG!

The Warmachine Vengeance softcover edition brings a new layer to the sordid tale Khador, Cygnar, Cryx, and the other factions.  Within this volume are stats and information for new Warcasters, units, solos, a painting guide, and a theme force list that offers information on how to construct armies around specialized forces.

Conflict rages within the Damocles Gulf corner of the Warhammer universe.

A new Apocalypse War Zone supplement, the Damocles HC, provides players the information needed to reenact this major conflict, including the historical background of Shadowsun‘s attack on the Gulf, a detailed explanation of The Battle of Agrellan Prime, a selection of new rules, missions, and strategic assets, and eighteen datasheets for various faction-based forces.

Hulk smashes, why can’t you?

Smash Up receives another expansion this weekend, which, as is the case with all the game’s expansions, adds a four entirely new and entirely random genres of cards.  Science Fiction Double Feature includes Time Travelers, Cyborg Apes, Super Spies, and Shapeshifters.  Slam them together (or with decks from previous expansions) and get to fighting!

The great glory of Mankind must be reclaimed!

So say the Sentinels of Terra in the newest Space Marines Codex supplement.  This hardcover release contains information on how to build a Sentinels army, a detailed background of the faction telling how they came to be and what they desire, and an array of mission templates designed to recreate famous battles from the Sentinels history.

Also out from the Warhammer 40K universe this weekend is the Imperial Knights Codex.  Collecting valuable information for the reassembled Knight world faction, this Codex contains the history of the Imperial Knights, extended information about the Knight Errant and Paladin suits, and rules for running an Imperial Knight detachment.

A week late due to these aggravating shipping troubles that continue to pop up recently, the Born of the Gods Event Deck is now available!

A mono black deck, the Underworld Herald Event Deck is designed for competitive tournament play.  An entirely built sixty card deck and fifteen card sideboard, Underworld Herald features a combination of Pack Rat, Doom Blade, Xathrid Necromancer, and Desecration Demon, the latter of which is a nearly ten dollar card.

The highly popular storytelling battle game Once Upon a Time, wherein players jockey for control of a fantasy narrative using their imagination and special story beat cards, gains another expansion this weekend in Knightly Tales.  Focusing on Knights and their honorable bravery, this fifty-five card expansion adds additional story and ending cards.

Two great tastes that taste great together, Drinking Quest the Card Game combines roleplaying games and, well, drinking.

A simple card game styled around the mechanics of classic RPGs, Drinking Quest has players choose stat-ed character cards, just like in RPGs, then face off against monsters (decided randomly by the cards, acting as GM).  Beat the monster and you earn life and glory, lose and you must chug, chug, chug!  If you have the most XP by the game’s end, you win.  The losers drink.  So, really everyone comes out alright.

We, the royal monarch of Pulpington, do dub thee the Imperial Knight Titan!

Yes, this hotly awaited Warhammer 40K, super heavy walker is finally in the store, as of today!  As well, the newest issue of White Dwarf, which includes the stats and information for the Titan, is out today!

While the first Boss Monster expansion is called Tools of a Hero-Kind, it also could have been called On Steroids, as the cards contained within this expansion beef-up the base games weaker hero cards beyond what they were.  This expansion contains new item cards that combine with the previous hero cards to make each hero’s defeat that much more lucrative, as each item provides special offensive abilities for those who defeat the hero carrying it.

The Justice League has just run a recruitment drive, and the new members are decided!

The first expansion for the DC Deck Building card game, Heroes Unite, is out this weekend.  Containing seven additional heroes to play and add to the base game, including fan favorites like Nightwing and Booster Gold, heavy hitters like Shazam and Red tornado, and agile femme fighters like Batgirl and Black Canary.

Sprinkle the fairy dust all around because Once Upon a Fable is taking you to a mystical, merry, unicorn-laden land.

A one to six player game, Once Upon a Fable is all about expansion, seeing players build their fairy kingdoms outward through a variety of means.  Whoever has acquired the most points from building by the end of nine rounds wins the game.  Along with the base game, a seven to eight player expansion (New Kingdoms) as well as the Tree of Wonders wooden pieces enhancement expansion, providing wooden versions of the plastic pieces from the base game and New Kingdoms expansion.

The dungeon crawling continues as Talisman gains another expansion pack this weekend.

The Firelands is all about adding new characters, as the pack contains the Dervish, the Warlord, the Nomad, and the Jin Blooded, each with their own unique abilities.  Three new alternate ending cards are also included alongside new terrain cards that allow players to alter the landscape of the game.

Never before has there been such a wretched RPG hive of scum and villainy as the Star Wars Edge of the Empire supplement, Dangerous Covenants.  This hardcover edition contains character options for hired gun characters, as well as expanded options regarding Motivations, Obligations, species, and specializations.  Game Masters are also given information on how to incorporate these types of characters into their game.

Pulp Fiction just received multiple copies of the exceptionally rare Vengeance issue of the highly sought after Sentinels of the Multiverse comic!

Within this expanded issue, the classic hero team that is The Sentinels (now capable of being represented by a single card) must go head-to-head with an equal and opposite team of supervillains (each player must face down their own villain card).

Finally, in tonight’s miniature corner are new expansion figures and ships for Pathfinder and Star Trek Attack Wing, respectively.

For the Pathfinder Miniatures Reign of Winter set there is the Monster deluxe set that includes oversized versions of Svathurim and a frost worm.

And for Attack Wing there is the IKS Someraw, the IRW Gal Gath’thong, a 4th Division Battleship, and the USS Equinox.
