This next part will be more enjoyable if you read it in a forties street corner newsboy accent.

News from the Western front!  The Germans have begun to falter and left room for the Allies to take back ground!  That ground is now indicated by large, extra-thick modular game mats!  That’s right, Wings of Glory Game Mats!  Coming in Countryside, City, and Coast, players can link the various mats together for one gigantic battle surface!  And, if you haven’t yet encountered Wings of Glory, the Kaiser’s got nothing to do with this red, white, and blue miniature game!  Find out for yourself by picking up either of the new Duel Pack starter editions of the game, which come with two plane models, bases, counters, rulers, and a rulebook; it’s everything you need to send the Germans running!  Now, join us all in a rousing rendition of the American anthem!

10-4, Big Kahuna, it’s time for Another BIG Expansion for Galaxy Trucker!

That’s right, the only game where you travel the intergalactic highways, fighting off marauders from your space semi-truck as you deliver cargo to the next planet gets a new expansion box.  Any of the contents of this special delivery can be played with or without the previous expansion, but must be played with the base Galaxy Trucker game.  Brand new ship boards with rules, ship components to build with, intruders to attack your ship, and support staff to ease your travel are among the many extras and additives included in this cargo.  Give me a tug on that horn if you’re gonna pick it up!!

Y’all done hear the tale of Revolver?  Nah?  Well, mosey on up ta the campfire for a tale.

Though it all began with Revolver, tonight you’re gonna hear ’bout it’s young’n, Revolver 2.  It’s a yarn about a tiny town versus an army, ‘General’ Mapache’s army, ta be precise.  One player takes control of the town’s residents and the gunfighters they’ve hired to protect them, while the other player takes control of Mapache’s army.  Each hombre controls their own deck of cards, including weapons, actions, and win condition cards.  And, if you’ve got’a lucky horse, you might feel like adding one of the other expansion packs, Hunt the Man Down or Ambush on Gunshot Trail, for added play modules.  Now, eat your beans, bed down of the night, an’ don’t let a rattlesnake bite your nose.

Last but in no way least, the new Magic the Gathering set came out this evening.  Gatecrash is the second set in the Return to Ravnica block, and the second set of guilds.  We currently have in stock booster boxes for English, Russian, Korean, and Japanese cards for the set, as well as Fat Packs and Intro Decks.  The guilds for this set include Orzhov, Simic, Gruul, Boros, and Dimir, so be sure to get your matching sleeves and deck boxes to accentuate your cards.

Empires of the Void is a space epic for the ages featuring space colonization, interplanetary battles, and plenty of universe spanning space travel. Two to four players control various alien races who are attempting to conquer the galaxy as they either colonize or strip planets of their resources while fighting off other like-minded empires. Players will use strategy, negotiation, and trade as they make decisions and contend with the random event deck which pushes the story forward. Formerly a successful Kickstarter game, Empires of the Void is now available for pick up at your friendly local game store, i.e. us.

Dust Tactics continues to storm the shelves with its fresh range of alternate history battle mechs and soldiers. Freshly arrived this week is the Panzer-Kampflaufer III, a German battlemech with three construction variants and three corresponding unit cards. Bringing the freeze, the SSU Commissar Squad is also released this weekend, coming with five Russian soldiers, fully assembled and ready to paint.

If you were looking at the box art that I currently am, you would have the theme from the beach storming scene in Apocalypse Now, too. And that box goes to Mad Zeppelin. This new card game from Fantasy Flight is as wacky as Red November and as stylish as any other Fantasy Flight game. Players control traitors on board massive zeppelin cargo ships, attempting to sabotage the mission by dropping valuable items on your journey. Those who prefer their games antagonistic and wacky need apply.
