Brick PartyIn our world of Minecraft and 90’s nostalgia, nothing makes me more excited than the possibility of playing with legos! Brick Party is a fun and frenzied game of brick building that takes you and a teammate through a wild round of assembly. Reveal the special rule for the round and build the chosen shape faster than your opponents, using only the directions given by your teammate and the restrictions given by the rules for that round.

 

Players: 2-9
Time: 15-30 Minutes
Ages: 5+
Type: Cooperative, Party Game, Dexterity

Arena of the PlaneswalkersHot off the success of their new card expansion, Magic: The Gathering continues their brand expansion by bringing their Lovecraft inspired universe, Shadows over Innistrad, straight into the realm of board games. In this standalone expansion to Arena of the Planeswalkers, players customize their battlefield by placing different terrain around the map and leading their Planeswalkers and legions of creature allies around, attempting to cast spells and dominate the board. Last Planeswalker standing is deemed the victor!

Players: 2-4
Time: 60 Minutes
Ages: 10+
Type: Fantasy, Grid Movement, Dice Rolling, Miniatures

 

Archer Love LetterArcher: Once You Go Blackmail… is a new variation of the classic Love Letter game engine — except with far more ARCHER! Each player starts the game with a character card in hand. On a turn, a player draws one card, then plays one of their two cards, activating whichever card they chose to play. The goal is to knock other players out of the round, or to have the highest number of cards in hand when the round ends. Win enough rounds, and you win the game! Have I mentioned Archer?

 

Players: 2-4
Time: 10 Minutes
Ages:10+
Type: Card Game, Hand Management, Player Elimination

Dead Last

Looking for a great game to fit that awkward 6-12 player category? Something involving murder and mayhem perhaps? Dead Last is a game of social collusion that rewards betrayal, shifting alliances, and murder for profit! Each round players may use any type of communication — glances, a nod, outright pointing, in order to conspire and vote on who to kill. Try not to make things too obvious, or your whole plan could backfire! Whoever makes it through to the end alive, gets the gold!

 


Players:6-12
Time: 45-60
Ages: 14+
Type: Bluffing, Murder/Mystery, Party Game

Dice Heist 2

Let’s continue this week of questionable morality, by talking about the game Dice Heist. In this game you dive into the role of an international thief, attempting to steal the world’s most valuable artifacts, gems, and paintings. Whether it’s robbing the Louvre in Paris, or the Metropolitan Museum of art in NYC, your job is to get in and get out with the most impressive and valuable collection of priceless treasures! Recruit sidekicks, rip apart some security systems, and roll some dice!

Players: 2-5
Time: 20 Minutes
Ages: 14+
Type: Dice Rolling, Set Collection

Exploding Kittens

“A kitty-powered version of Russian Roulette”. Exploding Kittens is a game that has alluded the shelves of physical game stores for quite some time, but it’s here now! Take turn drawing cards with your comrades until someone draws an exploding kitten and is abruptly eliminated. As the game goes on, few cards are left in the deck, which means a greater chance of drawing an exploding kitten!

Players: 2-5
Time: 15 Minutes
Ages: 7+
Type: Party, Press Your Luck, Hand Management

Mystic ValeNew this week is one of AEG’s (Love Letter, Smash Up) most-hyped games! Mystic Vale is a 2-4 player “Card-Crafting” Deck builder, in which players take on the roles of druids attempting to cleanse their tainted homelands. Many have played deck builders where you spend resources crafting together the perfect stack of cards, but in Mystic Vale players get to build the cards themselves. With expansions already in the works, do not miss out on this unique and exciting game!

Ascension, War of ShadowsWhile on the topic of deck building games, the grandfather of them all has a new expansion out! Ascension, War of Shadows pushes players into reawakening heroes and constructs of the past and throws some new mechanics in with it. As the balance between light and dark shifts, cards gain additional powers depending on whether it is day or night. Play this as a stand-alone 1-4* player game, or combine War of Shadows with other Ascension games to play up to 6 players.

Castles of Burgandy Card GameIt’s easy to get stuck inside in the hot summer sun, daydreaming of a better time. Instead of embracing the misery, try reliving the Renaissance with a new and portable take on a Stefan Feld classic! The Castles of Burgundy Card game provides two players the opportunity to propel their European estates into prosperity through strategic trade and commerce! In true Stefan Feld fashion: Tiny Box, Lots of decisions.

Here Kitty KittyTonight, Pulp Fiction is announcing that we will no longer be selling comics or board games.  Instead, we will be exclusively selling cats and cat-related items.

Okay, that’s obviously an April Fool’s joke, but one that’s not far off.  Pulp has been getting barraged lately with cat themed games, including a couple this weekend.  First up, is Here, Kitty, Kitty!  In the game, your neighborhood is overrun with cuddly, furry felines, which means that everyone is in a frenzy to kidnap them.  Players take turns playing cards that move cats from the center of the table into their house marker.  Beware, though, because some cards can also steal cats from inside others’ houses.Tempurra Tem Purr A

Cat game number two, is Tem Purr A, a push-your-luck game about glutinous cats.  Taking place at an all cat Japanese eating contest, Tem Purr A has three to seven players laying down numbered cards to try and out-eat other players.  However, other players can shove food down your throat and possibly cause you Adventure Time Card Wars Fionna vs Cakeindigestion.  Even worse, pushing your luck too far can lead to death.

Our final cat game (though we have plenty of other human games) is the newest Adventure Time Card Wars collector’s pack.  Much beloved, Fionna and Cake finally receive their own decks!  Like other collector’s packs, Fionna and Cake comes with two completely built forty card decks, each centered around one of the titular characters.  Fans of Adventure Time who have never played Card Wars need not worry, the Fionna and Cake collector’s pack provides everything new players need to begin.Pax Porfiriana

Head on down Mexico way with the Pax Porfiriana Collector’s Edition.  Set before the Mexican Revolution, Pax Porfiriana is a competitive experience for one to six players, where everyone is attempting to take control of the country, using resources to tip the balance of power in their favor.  Use Pancho Villa’s bandits, political allies, pesos, and more to manipulate your way to the top.  This version of the game not only expands the experience for up to six players, but also includes two new gaming boards to help organize everything.

Greedy Greedy GoblinsFrom the makers of Smash-Up and more, AEG, comes Greedy Greedy Goblins.  A fast moving tile-laying game, Greedy Greedy Goblins is a competitive game, but one that has players drawing and laying tiles simultaneously.  Tiles are drawn and placed face down on each player’s respective cave board, then, once the tiles are depleted, players commence using dynamite and other tokens to mine their cave for loot.  If the name didn’t clue you in, the wealthiest goblin wins.Game of Thrones The Trivia Game

Before the next season premieres, brush up on your Game of Thrones knowledge with Fantasy Flight‘s new Game of Thrones:  The Trivia Game.  Set up similar to Trivial Pursuit, Game of Thrones:  The Trivia Game includes over 1200 cards, each with house-centric sets of questions from seasons one to four.  Players will have to ascend their way to the Iron Throne by answering particular progressions of house related questions to move up the board and attain glory.

Eminent Domain BattlecruisersEminent Domain claims plenty of territory this weekend with not one, but two releases.  Eminent Domain:  Exotica is an expansion for the base game that includes thirty tokens that present new technologies, a promo pack that allows players to combine Exotica with Escalation, and optional scenarios.  Eminent Domain:  Battlecruisers, the second release, is a completely stand-alone card game set in the universe.  Designed to be played in twenty minutes with three to five players, Battlecruisers is a bluffing game where cards that are played one turn can still effect the outcome a turn later.

We began with cute, cuddly kittens and we wrap up with terrifying, blood-curdling xenomorphs. Aliens vs Predator The Hunt Begins AVP:  The Hunt Begins is a ton of miniatures, tiles, tokens, and gaming goodness set in the Aliens/Predator universe.  Players take control of either Alien, Predator, or Ultra Marine forces, navigating a dangerous space station.  Each force is gunning for the other, with all of them represented by detailed miniatures.  A gorgeously designed, intricate experience, AVP:  The Hunt Begins is essential for any avid fan of the franchise needs to own.

Star Wars RebellionStar Wars.  Fantasy Flight.  Rebellion.  It’s freaking huge.  You know you want it.  Outside of that, Star Wars:  Rebellion is a massive miniature war game that pits the Empire and Rebellion forces against each other across a galaxy far, far away.  Both forces are represented by carefully crafted miniatures of the Death Star, Star Destroyers, A-Wings, X-Wings, and much, much more.  Balance your forces, choose how to deploy them, and dominate or free the galaxy.  The choice is yours.
