Always ready to pimp out Pulp customers who’ve got work coming out, the recently Kickstarted game Exile Sun has arrived on the shelves featuring an entire art design by Eric J. Carter.  Eric has been a customer since our original location, building a reputation as a go-to artist for deck building games like Dominion and Eminent Domain.  Exile Sun is, as well, a deck-builder, but with a ticking-clock twist.  At the end of each player’s turn, after they’ve finished, they progress a ticker on a special timer track, activating special events for the game as players progress.

Apparently the name Ultimate Werewolf was a misnomer as there are two new expansion packs out for the famous party game, making it more ultimate-er than before.  The first is Ultimate Werewolf Artifacts, which adds forty artifact cards to the deck, completely changing the method of play.  Now, instead of simply having a character designation (human or werewolf) each player also possesses an artifact that gives them special abilities and motivations.  The second, Ultimate Werewolf Inquisition is a standalone version of the original game with some altered rules for a smaller group play.

Trick taking games becomes a TICK taking in You Suck.

Players take turns laying down cards from a suited deck onto special tick cards, each granting special abilities to each player.  These bids will earn you even more points and abilities based on whether your bid is matched or not, gaining the player the possibility of earning a unique tick card.

If you’ve built up your stable of creature miniatures for Pathfinder, you may want to add an extra wing on it for the triplicate of dragons in the White Dragon Evolution set.  As you can see in the picture, this set includes the three growth stages of the legendary White Dragon.  Basically, the White Album of Pathfinder, this set will go down in history and away from shelves very shortly.

Finally, the big product for the evening, the release of Magic the Gathering’s newest Core Set, 2014.  As per usual, the release of a new set is accompanied by a veritable range of ways to purchase cards.  These include, Deck Builder’s Toolkits (the best value to get into Magic), Fat Packs (a 9 booster box set), Intro Decks (pre-build decks and two boosters), and, of course, booster packs in a variety of languages (English, Spanish, Russian, Japanese, and Korean).

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.
