The GrizzledOne of history’s deadliest wars has just been turned into a two to five player cooperative card game.  And it is awesome!  The Grizzled is an inexpensive card game that drops players into the roles of tattered WWI soldiers in the mud and muck of the trenches.  All the players will need to work together to survive a barrage of mortars, gas, and enemy fire, but will also need to keep their own safety in mind.  Finding that balance between group unity and personal survival will keep you coming back for more.One Night Revolution

The first of two products set in the popular cyberpunk universe of The Resistance card game, One Night Revolution is a new spin on that popular deception game.  With the combined mechanics and game designers of  The Resistance and One Night Ultimate Werewolf, One Night Resistance has three to ten players attempting to discover the government spies hidden among their revolutionary forces.  Like One Night Coup RebellionUltimate Werewolf, this version plays in a swift fifteen minutes!

The second Resistance universe game out this weekend is Coup Rebellion G54.  Not an expansion for the original Coup, but instead a sequel to that game, Coup Rebellion builds on the original game’s deception rules by adding character options.  These twenty-five new characters are able to be selected at the beginning of each game, each adding a unique ability to the gameplay.  Epic card game

From the makers of Star Realms, the popular, cheap, expandable deck building game, Epic the Card Game is another spin on Magic the Gathering from former pro players.  Epic allows two to four players to play sealed, draft, or constructed out of the materials contained in one box.  Unlike Magic, players do not require mana to power their Legion of Super-Heroes DC Deck Building Gamecards, but instead the game operates off of a simple one or none power system.

As with the previous Arrow and Justice Society of America expansion packs, the new Legion of Super-Heroes Crossover Pack for the DC Deck Building Game is a cheap set of additional cards for the game.  Included in the pack are six playable heroes not seen in previous expansions as well as new super-villain, hero, equipment, and other cards.Super Motherload

Based off of the online game written by comic author Kurtis J. Wiebe (Rat Queens), Super Motherload is the card/tile adaptation recently released by Roxley Games.  Super Motherload serves as a revolutionary game design, combining both deck building and tile laying.  Each player, taking on the role of a Mars colonist, will play cards from their own deck that will allow them to dig and attain materials on the planet’s surface.  Over the course of the game, however, players will purchase and add Survive Space Attacknew cards to their deck in order to dig for rarer resources.

Launching from Atlantis into the atmosphere, Survive:  Space Attack! adapts the basic rules of the original Survive: Escape from Atlantis! for an entirely new environment.  In the game, players will be taking on the role of astronauts who are desperate to escape their space station, as it is currently under attack by alien forces.  It will be up to each player to choose their own route and method of escape, but do so quickly, as the clock is ticking.Time Stories

Combining group storytelling, board gaming, and roleplaying, T.I.M.E. Stories is an original experience dropping this weekend from Asmodee Games.  T.I.M.E. Stories is set in a world where time agents exist to travel back to the past in order forestall temporal incursions.  Before each game, players will select a specific time agent to control, then they will be launched into the story scenario and attempt to play their way out.  In this initial release, the Asylum scenario sends players to a mental hospital in 1920s Paris.  Later expansions will add new scenarios to continue the gameplay.

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.

Like an atomic bomb of tiny cardboard, Magic the Gathering 2013 Core Set has dropped. This onslaught of Magic rares, uncommons, and commons is a perfect jumping on set for any new players as it is built around an even distribution of colors and types. Choose from new Fat Packs, Intro Decks, Deck Builder’s Tool Kits, and booster packs as entry options or supplemental materials for your existing decks.

A return to the fantasy RPGS of the seventies, Dungeon Crawl Classics is exactly what it claims to be, a good, old fashion pen and paper, D20 based fantasy system of wizards, elves, dungeons, orcs, and goblins. Not at all a new item, but so appealing to those who were around at the beginning of Dungeons and Dragons, we wanted to mention the restock we received. Outside of the core rulebook and limited edition leather bound version of that tome we also have in stock four different adventures ranging from levels 0 to 2.

Rio Grande Games has been incredibly successful at producing continually addicting expansions to their popular deck building series, Dominion. This week they have once again raised the bar by releasing the Dominion Base Cards set. These reprinted, newly illustrated editions of cards essential to the game, such as all the curse, trash, potion, and victory and treasure cards allow players to purchase any of the Dominion expansions without owning any of the base games. Or pick up the box if you want to spruce up your game with some new, beautifully illustrated versions of the games essential cards.

There’s always a bigger fish.

The new Warmachine Colossals rulebook depends heavily on this notion. Introducing the colossal figures, all of which are even bigger than the largest heavy ‘jacks. New warcasters, updated, fully compiled rules, sections of post-Warmachine: Wrath plot, and a painting guide complete the varied contents list of this essential rulebook.

Lets be honest, you can’t play Wings of War without the majorly cool plane models produced for the game. Ares Games is ready to help with your next bombing raid as they’ve released a set of four new WWI era flyers, all of which include a stat base, a stand to distinguish variable altitudes, a management card, maneuver cards, and the essential rules and counters for each plane.

Fleshing out the already flesh-filled, dystopian universes of Rogue Trader and Deathwatch, two new 40K RPG hardcovers are on shelves now. Honour the Chapter contains all the information necessary for players to detail and command a Space Marine Battle-Brother from any of twenty different chapters, each chronicled extensively. The Koronus Bestiary performs a similar task, but for the many, varied beasties and slithery things crawling, floating, and slithering about the galaxy, even coming with a creature generator tool which allows players to make their own deadly monsters.
