The Dungeon Roll Legends Hero Booster Pack #2 provides eight entirely new heroes to be mixed into the popular dungeon crawl dice game. These heroes, however, are far beefier than any of the previous heroes, so make sure to play them against each other or in a situation where other players are looking for a challenge.
Deus is Latin for God, making it a perfect name for the new hand management where players pray to their society’s deities through offerings. Deus begins with players receiving a hand of five cards, randomly featuring one of six colors. Each color represents a resource (military, trade, temples, etc.), which is then used to construct buildings in honor of the gods. These buildings are placed on a variable board (whose dimensions are decided by the number of players) in order to acquire points and gain victory.
The boundaries of the popular Tasty Minstrel Game release, Village, continue to grow. Village: Port is the newest expansion for the game and it is a sizable one. Not only does Port give players the option of boarding a skiff and sailing the seas in order to find buried treasure, but also new life goal cards that allow players to choose career options for their characters.
It’s taken Steve Jackson a bit of time to get another Chez Geek expansion out on the shelves, but, to be fair, the game is about who can be the laziest. Like a slacker cousin to the popular Munchkin franchise, Chez Geek has players earning slack points for doing as little as they can. Slack to the Future, the creatively titled expansion that hits shelves this weekend includes fifty-six new jobs, friends, food, and activities that can be used to acquire “slack” in the game.
While it may not be as insane as Sealab 2021, AquaSphere is still a frantic game of underwater area control. Players compete to collect data regarding the ocean. Every player controls a team of researchers (comprised of a scientist, engineer, robots, and submarines) across to halves of the game board (a lab and headquarters). Gathering knowledge points moves you closer to winning and to do so players must expend actions to observe octopuses, expand your lab, or increase your team’s abilities.
Hanabi, among the most popular cooperative games on the market, gains a deluxe edition this weekend. Deluxe Hanabi plays exactly like the original, with player working together to create a fireworks display. The trick is that each player can see everyone but their own fireworks, requiring everyone to describe and hint at what each other has. The Deluxe Hanabi edition replaces the standard cards with Mahjong tiles, reflecting the Eastern influence and setting of the game.
