Dystopias can be so depressing when you aren’t the one in charge.

Luckily, in Euphoria you are in charge of supplying all of the dystopia you can handle!  A worker placement game, in Euphoria players place dice (i.e. workers), whose awareness levels are determined by numbers on each die, in order to expand your empire and acquire the materials to do so.

The path grows ever longer thanks to the Tokaido:  Crossroads expansion.

A first expansion for the game, Crossroads adds additional way-points along your journey, such as gambling establishments, bathhouses, cherry trees, as well as beautiful calligraphy, artifacts, and charms.

Small World ain’t so small any more, as this weekend sees the arrival of the Six Player Board Expansion.

This double-sized board kicks up both base Small World and Small World:  Underground up to six players, turning the games into a team event where three teams of two compete against each other.  The Underground board also adds special places and relics that enhance team play, as well.

Fast and easy to travel, Treehouse is another Looney Pyramids release that plays perfectly with families and kids.  A simple to learn game, players each have stacks of pyramid pieces which they can move, rotate, jump, and rearrange in particular ways in an attempt to match the example in the middle of the game board.

Welcome to Minimalist New Game Stuff Theatre. If you’re unfamiliar, this is where we rush a game post by acting as if it’s purposeful by covering it up with fake snobbery. Also, the sentences will be rather short.
