Wasn’t happy with the ending to the Avengers vs. X-Men storyline? Play it out yourself with the new Avengers and X-Men Vs. Heroclix starter sets. These two individual sets, one X-Men, one Avengers, each contain the essentials for playing a head-to-head game of Heroclix, allowing you and your friend to pit Avenger against X-Man!
If zombie films have taught us anything, it’s that the undead never stop coming. Steve Jackson takes this concept to heart with his extremely successful Zombie Dice game. Releasing this weekend is the Zombie Dice Brain Case, a special dice container with a heavy-duty screw-on cap and a score pad to keep track of your brains.
The famous FATE-centric RPG gained a dirigible’s worth of new product today, including a supplemental edition called Strange Tales of the Century, written and designed to appear like a classic pulp novel, but actually providing new material. Three actual SotC novels were released, however, including Khan of Mars, King Khan, and Sally Slick and the Steel Syndicate.
Forget Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw, Gryffindor, and Slytherin.
Mage Wars is all about Druid vs. Necromancer!
One of the hottest (pun intended) cooperative games on shelves right now, Flash Point: Fire Rescue, is about to get a little hotter. Excuse the lame burns (sorry!).
Anyway, Extreme Danger, the newest expansion for the game, adds two new levels, basement and attic, to extend the difficulty of the game, requiring that players climb further. Also included in Extreme Danger are an entire set of unique miniatures which now are sculpted to represent each type of firefighter rather than having a single mold in different colors.
A new deception based card game, Coup (not coop), has players attempting to get their opponents to reveal their two secret identity cards, each laid out face down in front of them, throughout the game by using their own, hidden, special abilities.
After the release of Shadowrun fifth edition earlier this year, players have been clamoring for supplemental material. No longer do you have to hack corporations to get it, either, because Shattered States, an introductory level adventure for beginner players, is on shelves this weekend.
Munchkin gets a double shot of new this weekend with two distinct booster pack expansions. First up is Munchkin Gets Promoted, a collection of formerly impossible to find special edition promo cards from throughout Munchkin‘s history. Second is a goblin-centric booster expansion for Munchkin Pathfinder, Gobsmacked.
Considering the country is littered with bridges (and accompanying tolls to use them), Nederland adds a distinct element to the game where players must pay tokens to access certain bridge pathways. The second player to use one of these double bridges, then must pay back those tokens to the first player if they are to cross.
Finally, Mice and Mystics receives its first expansion in the form of Heart of Glorm. This direct sequel to the original game adds new miniatures, cards, and especially chapters to continue the quest of the mice knights after they have defeated Vanestra.
