Smallworld Pocket EncyclopediaWe know everyone is working to flesh out their Pokedex on Pokemon Go, but this weekend Days of Wonder is dropping their own encyclopedia for Small World.  The Small World Pocket Encyclopedia is a must-buy for all of the Small World purists and collectors out there.  A smartly designed, pocket sized  hardcover volume, the Small World Pocket Encyclopedia contains not only a full set of easy-access rules for the game, but also an FAQ, designer notes, and, most importantly, sixty-three individual entries detailing every race and special power from the base game and all of the expansions.The Grizzled At Your Order

Only the truly rough, tough, and resilient survived during the Great War.  The same applies to The Grizzled.  A strategic cooperative card game set during World War I, The Grizzled receives its first expansion set this weekend.  At Your Orders! provides additional special missions for players to complete during gameplay, both in experienced and novice versions to satisfy new and old gamers alike.  Even more exciting, At Your Orders! also provides expanded rulesets for two player or solo play for the original base game.

Stellar ConflictLike an expanded, card game version of Galaga, Stellar Conflict is another card game set in the Among the Stars universe.  Taking place over two tense, speedy rounds, Stellar Conflict plays for ten minutes with two to four players.  In round one, players swiftly select ships from a variety of options, choosing them based off of their abilities and availability.  Once that round is complete, these ships are deployed against an invading fleet of alien cruisers that must be vanquished by the armada you have chosen.  Hopefully you haven’t chosen poorly.Mysterium Hidden Signs

You thought you’d solved the mystery and escaped the Mysterium.  You were wrong.  Mysterium:  Hidden Signs is the first expansion for the popular horror tinged game, Mysterium.  Expanding the options and gameplay, this set includes six suspects, six locations, and six objects to deepen the gameplay.  Forty-two new vision cards are also included in order to provide players with a range of new communication options.  Also, if you manage to grab the first printing of this expansion, you’ll receive three promo cards that can be used in the base game.

Rick and Morty Total RickallCryptozoic capitalizes on the extreme popularity of Adult Swim‘s Rick and Morty series with the first card game based on the show.  Featuring a quick learning curve, Rick and Morty:  Total Rickall plays well with two to five players over the course of twenty to thirty minutes.  Always ready to skewer pop culture, Rick and Morty:  Total Rickall is a play off of The Thing, with Rick and Morty attempting to cleanse their house of shapshifting parasites that have disguised themselves as friends and family.  Work your way through these opponents, but be careful not to eliminate the real versions!Kitty Paw

There is never enough cute cat games in the world.  Proving that fact, Kitty Paw is a new dexterity and reaction game out this weekend.  For audiences young and old, Kitty Paw is a one to four player game that can take anywhere from fifteen to thirty minutes to play.  In the game, players rush to draw and play various cat cards in order to match a designated pattern assigned at the beginning of the round.  Of course, that’s too simple.  Players also will be forced to use only one “cat paw” when drawing and playing X-Wing Star Wars Imperial Veteransthese cards as well as pulling from the same draw pile as all other players.

Be ready to get those Tie-Fighter sound effects stuck in your head, because Fantasy Flight has just released another Empire expansion for the X-Wing miniature game.  In Imperial Veterans, players receive two ships, the Crimson Tie and the Tie-Bomber.  The former is all about nimble movement and swift attacking, while the latter hits opponents with a painful barrage of explosives.  This expansion contains all of the materials for players to use either or both ships in their next X-Wing game.

Mafia VendettaFantasy Flight is getting in deep with the family.  A spin on the classic Mafia card game, Mafia:  Vendetta is a deception game in the vein of Bang! and Ultimate Werewolf.  However, in Mafia:  Vendetta, players are attempting to weed out the mobbed up individuals within the group.  Over the rounds, players will pose accusations in an effort to uncover the covert culprits, but players will also be eliminated, slowly parring down the number of players.A Game of Thrones Road to Winterfell chapter pack

Adding cards twenty-one to forty of the Westeros cycle, The Road to Winterfell is a chapter pack of sixty new cards for the A Game of Thrones LCG.  These cards are meant to augment existing decks and add variety to the base game and expansions from the series.

Pixel Tactics DeluxeMuch like Smash Up’s Big Geeky Box, Pixel Tactics Deluxe simultaneously acts as an expansion, a base game, and a container for your cards.  In addition to a complete set of never-before seen heroes, Pixel Tactics Deluxe gives you a large storage box to keep your whole collection in one, a bonus minipak expansion, and a big rulebook that introduces new play modes, including Large-Group League Play.  Deluxe is also fully playable on its own, but combining multiple Pixel Tactics games together gives you a ton of new ways to play.The End of the World Alien Invasion

Another in the popular The End of the World RPG series, Alien Invasion drops this weekend.  Like the other apocalypse scenarios, Alien Invasion has players actually playing themselves in the campaign, with the stats to reflect their own (so you might want to start training now).  Outside of the instructions for the rule system, this hardcover volume also includes character creation rules and five different scenarios that homage various alien invasion plots (such as giant Villains Sentintels of the Multiverseinsects, alien infiltration, and the class flying saucers).

Everyone knows that the bad guys have all the fun in comic books, so Sentinels of the Multiverse is giving players a chance to experience what it’s like to be villainous.  Villains of the Multiverse is a mega expansion for the game, using the villain team gameplay mechanics introduced in Sentinels of the Multiverse:  Vengeance to group villains together as a team fighting against a hero team.  Ten new villains are included, which can be faced in any configuration, as well as four new environments.Pokemon Breakpoint booster

Much like Magic the Gathering, a new Pokemon set is always a moment for celebration if you’re an avid CCG player.  Pokemon Breakpoint is the newest set, including 120 cards that expand on the storyline regarding the rift between worlds.  In addition to the regular booster pack release, there is also a Elite Training Box for the set that includes eight booster packs, card sleeves, dice, tokens, and a card box with King's Forgedividers.

Somewhere between Quarriors and a resource management game, King’s Forge is a fantasy-based dice game for two to four players.  In the game, players will collect and utilize various different dice to build items or trade for better dice.  In order to do this, players will traverse nineteen realms, each with their own dice opportunities, and decide whether to keep their dice or construct one of thirty-two different creations.  And if that sounds slightly disorganized, don’t worry, because this edition also comes with a game board to help organize everything.Cat Tower

Cats are big business in the gaming world right now, so IDW has jumped on the bandwagon with Cat Tower.  This dexterity game is not only extremely cute, but also an excellent party game.  For two to six players, Cat Tower involves the stacking of foldable cat cards, much like a furry Jenga.  The order and position of the cats is decided by the roll of a die, but do be careful rolling that die, because each fallen cat goes directly into the guilty player’s deck.  The more you have, the less points you gain.

Got eight minutes to spare?

Why not play Eight-Minute Empire: Legends?  The second stand-alone release in this line, Legends is literally playable in eight minutes, ready-made for quick gaming in between gaming.  The game involves players picking cards off of six piles, with each card providing a special action to perform immediately after.

Three new ships pull into the Star Trek Attack Wing docking bay this weekend, including the USS Excelsior for the Federation, RIS Vo from the Romulan alliance, and Dominion’s Koranak vessel.

Who you gonna call?  Yourself!

Ghooost! is family friendly, easily travel-able card matching game where players try to get rid of their hand of cards by matching suits with cards previously laid down.  Players pull from their “mansion” for new cards, hoping for cards with special abilities that allow them to lay more cards or enact other actions.  The whole game also comes in a handy carrying box that folds out into the game board.

Gamer couples searching for a new two player experience need look no further than Pixel Tactics and Pixel Tactics 2.

Head-to-head battling is the name of the game, stemming from each player controlling an identical deck of cards, but assigning a specific leader card to the deck that entirely alters how each card plays.  This allows for twenty-five different variations on the standard deck.  And don’t worry about picking these initially releases up in order, they are both stand-alone and can be played in any order.

The fifth large expansion for the Warhammer:  Invasion LCG card game, Hidden Kingdoms, fleshes out the remaining factions that have, up until now, not seen play in the game.  These include Skaven, Lizardmen, Wood Elves, and Undead, each of which has been built-up to a full faction.

The Mayan apocalypse may never have come, but that hasn’t stopped Tzolk’in from producing an expansion to end all expansions.  Tribes and Prophecies not only adds enough pieces to include a fifth player, but also alters the gaming experience entirely by allowing each player to take command of tribe leaders that grant them abilities beyond the normal selection.

Space is a vast and endless place, which means Rio Grand Games has plenty of universe to produce a fifth Race for the Galaxy expansion from.  Alien Artifacts adds a fifth playable deck onto the base game, as well as five additional start worlds.  Along with these extra pieces, the expansion contains another gaming mode where players map an alien “orb” searching for artifacts that gain them extra powers.

For the penultimate game item, Pathfinder, like a Pokemon trainer on a winning spree, continues to evolve their dragons.  This time around, it’s the Red Dragon Evolution set of miniatures.

And, basically, that’s kinda it…

Like there’s three dragons.

And some are bigger than others.

But they’re all red…

Yup…

Anyway, the ‘verse is never done offering up rewards for determined, swindly captains, especially ones experienced in Breakin’ Atmo.

The first expansion deck for the beloved Firefly board game, Breakin’ Atmo, supplies players with twenty-five new jobs, supply cards, and shiploads of gear!  Shiny don’t even begin to describe this valuable bobble!

To crush your enemies, see dem driven before you, and to hear de lamentation of der women.

Dat and Munchkin Conan.

Saying more isn’t really necessary, but if you’re completely out of the loop, Munchkin Conan is the newest stand-alone Munchkin game. Earlier last year you may have picked up the special Conan booster pack for the game, but now you can have an entire, separate camel punching Munchkin experience.

There’s been a lot of printing on demand lately in the Fantasy Flight neck of the woods. And we’ve been picking up what they’ve been putting down. With a blend of some restock and some brand new, here’s the most recent Fantasy Flight POD packs we’ve received.

Kaijudo parallels its cartoon predecessor by allowing players to find a the creature companion that best fits their personality and style of play. The Kaijudo Tatsurion vs. Razorkinder set Pulp has in stock contains all the essentials to get started in the game, including playmats and two 40 card decks.
