Join the family in Mafia de Cuba. In the vein of Ultimate Werewolf or Bang!, Mafia de Cuba is a game of deceptive trickery. Players will pass around the actual game box, which will contain various diamonds and tokens, each of which can be stolen or left in order to choose your allegiance. As the box is passed around, other players will have to deduce who has taken or not taken what tokens in order to figure out their allegiance.
Boss Monster 2 may have already come out, but that was simply the standard edition. If you know anything about video games, you’ll know that alternate versions and updated editions are a regular occurrence. That being said, Boss Monster 2 receives a special limited edition variant this weekend. Including the same twelve new bosses from the original version, this limited edition presents them in shiny, deluxe holofoil!
Heavily influenced by anime and manga, Code of Nine is the newest game from the designers of Tragedy Looper. In the game, you are an automaton awakening to the ruins of the world 100 years after its destruction. With no humans alive to guide you, and only having two of the eight important conditions that you must obey, you must wander the ruins to complete the task assigned you. Each location on the board has a unique effect. You may gain items, steal items, or look at your opponents’ Memory cards. You must choose which action to take, but with only fifteen turns to act, choose wisely.
Fantasy Flight games launches a series playmats this weekend for the Game of Thrones LCG. Each of these rubber playmats are 14″x24″ in diameter, and feature beautifully illustrated versions of the George R.R. Martin’s most famous characters. Choose from The Kingslayer, the Mother of Dragons, Ironborn Reavers, the Red Witch, and others. While these playmats are intended for use with the LCG, they are obviously usable with Magic, My Little Pony, or any other popular card game.
And if you’re going to be picking up a new playmat, might as well grab a fancy Monster Playmat Tube. These tubes come in a variety of colors, including red, green, gray, clear, and opaque black and white. Unlike other brands of playmat tubes, Monsters are triangular, which keeps them from rolling away when you sit them down.
You’ve played Farkle, but have you ever braved the challenge of Dragon Farkle? The answer is likely “no,” as the game is just coming out this weekend. Dragon Farkle is like standard versions of Farkle, but with the added mechanics that account for the whole dragon-ness of it all. Not only will you roll dice to “build your armies,” you will also utilize various magic items and companions, represented by cards, to battle against the menacing dragon.
What game isn’t improved by throwing some Cthulhu into it? None. The answer is none. In Shadows Over Normandie: Achtung! Cthulhu, two to three players control opposing armies (the Majestic, Deep Ones, or Black Sun) in all out warfare. Represented by illustrated tokens, each army moves across battlefield tiles that pose obstacles and cover, much like a miniature battle game. Of course, in this version of WWII, the Elder Gods have fully descended upon the Earth, adding a little extra challenge.
