Bro hooves all around, the My Little Pony Collectible Card game has finally arrived, 20% cooler than you expected!

After much anticipation, Pulp Fiction has ventured into Equestria to attain both booster packs as well as the two starter decks featuring Twilight Sparkle and Rainbow Dash.  And make sure to get here in ten seconds flat or they’ll be gone.  Why?  ’Cause they’re the.  Best.  Thing.  Ever.

Reaching a Cataclysm, the Warhammer Invasion releases its fourth deluxe expansion this weekend.

Cataclysm is a unique expansion for this formerly two player Living Card Game, as it expands the playable options to include two more players, kicking the gaming total up to four.   In addition, the expansion contains six fulcrum cards and 159 player cards.

The student becomes the master in Star Wars:  The Balance of the Force.

This second deluxe expansion for the Fantasy Flight LCG game provides alternate rules for the game that introduce two new styles of play.  These include a team based variant, which pits two against two, as well as a unique challenge deck style of play that is narratively driven.

Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water, Get Bit! Deluxe surfaces!

A redesign of the popular family game, Get Bit! Deluxe features character designs on each of the four victims, as well as uniquely illustrated cards to go along with them.  As well, the new version comes packed in a compact, carrying tin.  And if you’re not familiar with the game, its all about pushing your buddy into the path of the hungry shark on your tail.

Keyflower, the resource management game wherein players develop their own villages over a four season period, receives its first expansion in, The Farmers.  As the title suggests, The Farmers expansion adds an agricultural pursuit to the game as players construct farming compounds, grow crops, and acquire livestock.  These components also interact with the board from the base gaming, altering the playability and layout of the original game.
