Shadowrun Crossfire Character Expansion Pack 1Like that extra cybernetic eye you had installed last week, the Shadowrun Crossfire Character Expansion Pack 1 extends the usability of the Shadowrun Crossfire Deck Building Game.  Included in this reasonably priced expansion pack are twenty entirely new runner cards, four basic cards, and one hundred (you read that right!) upgrade stickers.The Hobbit Love Letter

If you thought Love Letter had a lot of variations before, then you’ll be shocked to find out another one has hit the shelves.  Love Letter The Hobbit overlays the world of J.R.R. Tolkein’s Middle Earth onto the mechanics of this incredibly popular card game.  However, this version of Love Letter provides a twist on the previous versions as players struggle to locate the Arkenstone before Smaug catches on.

Dungeons Dragons Collector's Series Drow War PartyDungeon and Dragons miniatures have not been prevalent after the dissolution of fourth edition, but Wizards of the Coast and Gale Force Nine are changing that this weekend.  The D&D Collector’s Series of miniatures is an extremely limited edition set of unpainted miniature figures to be used in the roleplaying game.  In the initial line are an Eye Tyrant Beholder, Lolth Demon Queen of Spiders, a Illithid Raiding Party, and Drow War Party.Legendary Fear Itself expansion

Another mini expansion for the popular Marvel Deck Building Game, Legendary, is out this weekend.  Legendary Fear Itself incorporates characters from the comic event of the same name, each of which is empowered by an Asgardian hammer akin to Thor‘s Mjolnir.  Included in the expansion are one hundred playable cards, six allies, one commander (Uru-Harlequins CodexEnchanted Iron Man), one adversary group, and three new plots.

The violent tricksters of Warhammer 40K receive their own hardcover codex this weekend.  The awaited Harlequin Codex has arrived, including in its glossy pages a detailed history of the faction, a gallery of paint schemes and miniature options, a comprehensive army list, and an appendix full of rules for fielding the armies of the Harlequin faction.Dungeons Dragons Battle for Faerun Dice Masters

Wizards of the Coast and Asmodee have joined forces to produce the newest version of Dice Masters on the market.  Battle for Faerun is a Dungeon and Dragons themed version of Dice Masters where sets of dice represent characters and creatures from the popular roleplaying game.  Working like a deck building game but with dice, players assemble teams by purchasing assortments dice.  Out this weekend is a two player starter set and the standard Pretty Pretty Smash Up expansionbooster pack assortment.

Objectively the most amazing expansion pack for the Smash Up card game to date, Pretty Pretty Smash Up is out this weekend.  Basically, the grungy, spooky, monstrous factions have had their day in Smash Up and now it’s time for some cute and cuddly options.  Included within this box are four entirely new factions, including Kitty Cats (featuring some familiar furry faces from the Internet), Princesses, Fairies, and, for all the Bronies out there, Mythic Horses.  All your vampires, pirates, and Cthulhus don’t stand a chance!

We heard you like skulls so we put some skulls in on your Khorne so you can cranium while you brain-i-em.

That’s the basic idea behind the Khorne Lord of Skulls figure on sale tomorrow.  I mean, just look at that guy!  He’s a rolling tank made of skulls!  Joining the Lord of Skulls this weekend are is the sixth edition hardcover for Apocalypse as well as the Strategic Asset cards to accompany it.  Along with those guys are the other Apocalypse accessories (sized EXTRA large) including the dice cube and templates.  Three terrain pieces previously included only in the Wall of Martyrs box set release individually, Firestorm Redoubt, Vengeance Weapon Battery, and the Aquila Stronghold.  Along with four new Space Marines captains (Marches, Rites, Relics, and Lord Executioner) there is a gigantic Necron Tesseract Vault arriving, as well.

Have you been searching for a way to squeeze a wrench-wielding, mechanic squirrel into your monthly roleplaying game and coming up dry?  Well, the Fate Core System book is here to answer your nutty wishes.  This Fate Core softcover supplies the necessary rules template and information to run any story your mind desires.  Maybe you don’t have the time to set-up an entire world and characters, though.  Maybe you have to teach a new player quickly or create a game for those last minute guests.  Fate Accelerated is the answer.  A condensed, easy set-up version of the main system, Fate Accelerated is ready to go for time constrained gamers!

If you’ve gotten tired of your Star Wars X-Wing ships tooling around a plastic or wood shaded galaxy, Gale Force 9 is here to help.  Releasing two new oversized, vinyl playmats (both wet erasable) legal distinguishable (but intended) for Star Wars and Star Trek miniature play.  The first being a Deathstar-esque design and the other a generalized nebula, reminiscent of the climactic battle of Wrath of Khan.

Ed Greenwood’s Forgotten Realms hardcover is all the fluff with none of the rules.  And, in this case, that’s a great thing!  This special hardcover volume includes each and every realm and setting in from the classic Forgotten Realms editions, but entirely system-free.  That’s right, you can apply these environments to any and all roleplaying systems.  So, you better make sure your Paladin packs his bag of holding, ’cause he’s got a lot of traveling to do.

Not only what you will be snacking upon while playing it, but also a key component of the game and the title, Beer & Pretzels is a fantastic new party game for lushes.  Or maybe just people putting a few back.  Either way, this game is made for the inebriated as it is super easy to learn.  Players take turns throwing coasters onto a nearby table, earning “money” points based on the type of pretzel displayed or beer (which double your points).  That’s it.  Some drinking may also be involved, based on the group.

Already existing in a galaxy close, close next to you, the (finally here!) Edge of the Empire Core Rulebook!  This long awaited Star Wars RPG core hardcover has been “Shipping Soon” from Fantasy Flight for nearly half a year, keeping players waiting with baited bantha breath.  Well, now it’s here, in all its glory, along with the nifty Game Master’s Kit.  Yes, we know this came out last week, but due to lightspeed travel and store employee travel, this isn’t being posted until tonight.

Finally, tonight, the kingdom is expanding!

Kingdom Builder:  Crossroads is the most recent expansion for the mega-popular game, including four entirely original landscapes and two location spaces.  Both of these additions allow players to expand and grow the kingdom in entirely new ways!  Task cards are also included, which require that players build their kingdoms in a specific direction, adding a new layer of challenge to the game.
