Why take your kids to the zoo when you can take the zoo to the kids?

Zooloretto: The Dice Game is travel version of the original game, altering the original animal picking to dice rolls.  The short and sweet version of it goes like this:  One, you get animals to score points, two, you roll dice for more animals, and, three, use some of those animals to fill your zoo.  Just make sure to pair like animals together.

The expansion pack to Ascension:  Rise of Vigil, is out today and it unleashes the darkness!

Ascension:  Darkness Unleashed allows players to use Dark Energy Shards in order to power up and transform their their heroes and constructs.  Also, if you do not have the previous base game you can still pick this expansion up and play it as a a head-to-head variation.  If you do have Rise of Vigil, Darkness Unleashed converts it to a six player game.

The captain may go down with the ship, but no one else does.  Or, at least, they hope they don’t.

Lifeboats is all about survival at any means necessary.  Escaping a sinking ship, players gather into lifeboats and attempt to make their way to the nearest shore.  However, disaster lies ahead as the waves pound against the dingy, throwing passengers overboard.  The catch is that players get to choose who goes overboard, negotiating to keep their characters in the ship and playing the Captain’s Hat to overrule a deadly vote.

Following in the footsteps of the D&D Red Box and the Pathfinder Beginner Box, the new Thunderstone Starter Set creates a perfect introduction to the popular deck building game.  Offering the essentials for a two to five player game, this set not only provides the materials to get looting, exploring, and monster fighting, but also scales up to serve the needs of veteran players.

Already sold out at the distributor level, the Kanai Factory edition of Love Letter is a limited version of the extremely popular original.  Including two new promo cards, making the deck total eighteen, this version presents the game in its original Japanese incarnation.  And again, once they’re gone, they’re gone.

Finally, as the force is always with you, the third wave of Star Wars X-Wing ships have arrived!

This wave includes the B-Wing, HWK 290, the Tie Bomber, and the oversized ship for the set, the Imperial Lambda Shuttle.
