New Games!

by: on September 2, 2017  |  

We’re pretty excited about the great new games that came out this week.  Some of them we’ve been anxiously awaiting!

NMBR9 – 1-4 players, 8+, 20 minutes

This super fun tactile game involves stacking number-shaped tiles for points.  But only tiles on the second layer and above score points.  Each round every player has to place the same number tile and everything has to overlap – no parts of tiles can overhang air.  It’s easy and challenging at the same time.

Bunny Kingdom – 2-4 Players, 12+ 40-60 minutes

Bunny Kingdom by Richard Garfield (Magic: the Gathering, Android Netrunner, King of Tokyo) is a territory control and card drafting game in which you lead your clan of rabbits to glory by gathering resources and building warrens across the land.

Mountains of Madness – 2-5 players, 12+, 60-90 minutes

Based on the novel by H. P. Lovecraft, Mountains of Madness is a fully cooperative game with a pinch of real-time gameplay.  This game brings a new twist to the multitude of Lovecraftian games out there.

1931: Your scientific expedition discovers a new and intriguing mountain range in the middle of the Antarctic polar circle. Under these challenging conditions, the survival of your team will depend on your ability to communicate with each other and to coordinate your efforts to overcome each obstacle — but what you discover on the way to the highest peak will strongly test your mental health. Will you even be able to understand yourself despite the madness that gradually insinuates itself into your mind?

Seikatsu – 1-4 players, 10+, 15-30 minutes

This game is beautifully illustrated and highly rated.  I can’t wait to play it.

In Seikatsu, players take turns placing tiles into a shared garden area, with each tile showing a colored flower and colored bird. Players score for groups of birds as they place them, but they score for rows of flowers only at the end of the game and only for the rows of flowers that exist from their perspective, i.e., that are viewable as lines from where they sit at the game board.

Star Wars Destiny 2-Player Game – 2 players, 10+, 30 minutes

This 2-player set for the great Star Wars Destiny collectible card and dice game brings a new starter set to the mix allowing new players to jump right in to this amazing game – another Richard Garfield hit.  Players put together a deck featuring Star Wars universe characters, weapons, events and special skills to take out the other player’s characters.  Dice and cards mix to create quick back and forth play that keeps things exciting.  Are you a hero, a villain or something else?


Star Wars Rebellion Rise of the Empire – 2-4 players, 14+, 180-240 minutes (aka: a long time!)

New leaders. New missions. New tactic cards that lead to more fully cinematic combats… Rise of the Empire is an expansion for Star Wars: Rebellion inspired largely by the movie Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. And just as the movie provided new insight into the Galactic Civil War presented in the original Star Wars trilogy, Rise of the Empire adds new depth and story to your Rebellion game experience.


Starfinder is Here!

by: on August 18, 2017  |  

Strap in and blast off! The Starfinder Roleplaying Game puts you in the role of a bold science-fantasy explorer, investigating the mysteries of a weird and magical universe as part of a starship crew. Will you delve for lost artifacts in the ruins of alien temples? Strap on rune-enhanced armor and a laser rifle to battle undead empires in fleets of bone ships, or defend colonists from a swarm of ravenous monsters? Maybe you’ll hack into the mainframe of a god-run corporation, or search the stars for clues to the secret history of the universe or brand new planets to explore. Whether you’re making first contact with new cultures on uncharted worlds or fighting to survive in the neon-lit back alleys of Absalom Station, you and your team will need all your wits, combat skill, and magic to make it through. But most of all, you’ll need each other.

Released on Thursday, this game is flying off the shelves.  Get yours now!

Magic the Gathering Commander 2017 is Coming 8/25!

by: on August 14, 2017  |  

Magic the Gathering Commander 2017 is Coming 8/25!  Get your Preorders in today!

Commander returns with four new tribal-themed, 100-card decks, featuring 56 all-new Magic cards legal in Eternal formats (Vintage and Legacy). Cards from Commander (2017 Edition) will be featured and distributed in connection with a future offering on Magic Online.

Commander is an exciting, unique way to play Magic that is all about awesome legendary creatures, big plays, and battling your friends in epic multiplayer games! In Commander, each player chooses a legendary creature as the commander of their deck. They then play with a 99-card deck that contains only cards of their commander’s colors. Also, other than basic lands, each deck can only use one copy of any card. During the game, you can cast your commander multiple times, meaning your favorite Legendary Creature can come back again and again to lead the charge as you battle for victory!

These Commander decks introduce an ability called eminence that lets your commander lead from the command zone, even before they have entered the battlefield. The eminence ability appears on characters from all parts of Magic lore, allowing you to call on the power and skill of some of the best leaders in the Multiverse.

There are four decks in this series:

  • Draconic Domination
  • Feline Ferocity
  • Vampiric Bloodlust
  • Arcane Wizardry
