Pre-order your WarLock Tile Starter Sets Today!

by: on October 7, 2019  |  

Coming soon! The WarLock Dungeon Tile system solves many of the problems present with other tile systems. The WarLock clips allow players to construct rooms in advance and place them on the table as needed. 1” tall walls make it easier for players to move pieces around in the room as they play. Offset walls provide you with the ability to place figures in any square on the grid, without pesky corners eating into your play area. All tiles are reversible with wood design on one side and stone on the other for double the functionality!

The WarLock Tiles Starter Set is perfect for the beginning terrain enthusiast. It’s also a great fit for hobbyists with more expertise, but not a lot of time.

Also included in this set are sixteen adapter clips for each of the two most popular clip-based tile systems, DRAGONLOCK™ and OpenLOCK™, to help players integrate these tiles into their collection.

With enough pieces to set up the equivalent of “40 foot by 40 foot” in-game room with a multitude of interior options, this is the perfect starting point for your collection.  

This set includes (contents subject to change):*
16 – 2”×2” Dual-Sided Tiles
8 – 2” Straight Stone Walls
8 – 2” Straight Stone Interior Walls
4 – Corner Pillars
4 – Inside Corner Stone Walls
4 – Outside Corner Stone Walls

All the New Games!

Subatomic, 10+, 40+ mins, 2-4 players

Subatomic: An Atom Building Game is a deck-building game in which players compete to build a number of available elements, which score them points. Each player starts with the same small deck of cards that consist of proton, neutron, and electron cards. They use these cards to build upon their current atom (by playing these cards face-up as subatomic particles) in an attempt to construct one of the available element cards. Alternatively, players may use their hand of cards to purchase more powerful cards for later use (by playing them in combinations of face-down cards as energy and face-up cards as subatomic particles). Subatomic introduces a unique variation on deck-building with a highly accurate chemistry theme, with the ultimate goal of building elements to score points, but allowing many varying types of strategies.

SOS Dino, 7+, 25 mins, 1-4 players
*AVAILABLE IN LIBRARY*

In this co-operative game, you must react, anticipate, and work together as a team to save the four dinosaurs in SOS Dino! Draw a tile, place it on the board, then move one of the dinosaurs closer to the safety of the mountains. Pay attention to lava and meteor showers!

Tonari, 10+, 30+ mins, 2-4 players

The small island of Kuchinoshima has been hit by a terrible storm, leaving the village with only a single fishing boat. Each hoping to prove themselves the village’s best fisherman, 2-4 players take turns moving the boat marker around the island, collecting any fish tiles they land upon. At the end of the day, the player with the best haul wins, but there’s a twist – with 3 or 4 players, each player’s score is added to the player to their right’s score before determining the winner!

Terror Below, 10+, 45+ mins, 1-5 players
*AVAILABLE IN LIBRARY*

Terror Below is a game of government experiments gone wild in the Nevada desert. The faster you move, the more vibrations you make, attracting the attention of the vicious worms underground. Navigate the difficult terrain to collect valuable worm eggs and deliver them to locations around town to claim bounties. If you’re feeling lucky, collect items and weapons to go hunt ’em. The goal of Terror Below is to be the first player to score 20 victory points (VP) by collecting worm eggs and delivering them to locations around town or alternatively, by hunting down and killing those vicious worms. During the game, your squad of unlikely heroes will visit locations around the small desert town to find bounties, scavenge for weapons, and try to survive as you distract the worms. Eventually, those worms will attack. If you are in their path of destruction, you better be prepared for a fight!

Machi Koro Legacy, 10+, 30+ mins, 2-4 players

Machi Koro Legacy features the same gameplay as Machi Koro. You are still rolling dice, you are still collecting income, and you are still racing to build landmarks. Machi Koro Legacy features a ten-game series that tells a complete story set in the world of Machi Koro in which player choices create a unique gameplay experience.

Mental Blocks, 10+, 10-20 mins, 2-9 players

Mental Blocks is a game of puzzling perspectives, with players trying to complete a puzzle using oversized foam blocks, despite seeing only one perspective of the design. You have to co-operate to complete the puzzle as a team, but you have a time limit, so don’t just sit around staring at the pieces. In addition to the time pressure, players have other challenges, such as not being able to talk or to touch certain color blocks. Mental Blocks features sixty puzzles: thirty “family mode” puzzles and thirty “challenge mode” puzzles that ramp in difficulty. For an even wilder game, you can add a traitor to the table to block your block-building.

Farmini, 5+, 15 mins, 1-4 players

It’s springtime! Time to restore your farm to its former glory! Lucky for you, there’s a regional farming competition going on! The trophy for this year’s most beautiful farm will be given to the farmer who has the most animals and cornfields! Will you win the competition in Farmini?

Microbrewers, 13+, 30 mins, 2-4 players

In Microbrewers: The Travel Card Game, you’ve opened your own brewery and are competing with other brewers in town to be named the Brew Crafter of your city. You’ll build your brewery by installing equipment and hiring workers, and then get to work brewing your beer! The player that earns the most reputation as the city’s best brewer will win!

Bosk, 13+, 45 mins, 2-4 players

From majestic Maples to ancestral Oaks, players nurture their trees aiming to thrive over the course of a year in a beautiful National Park. In the spring, players carefully grow their trees, scoring as hikers enjoy traveling the trails in summer. When autumn comes, leaves fall in the ever-changing direction of the wind, guided to cover the terrain and other players’ leaves. Points are awarded in winter for the most coverage of each region in the park. Gain your ground in the park to be victorious in Bosk!

Periodic: A Game of the Elements, 10+, 40 mins, 2-5 players

In Periodic: A Game of the Elements, players collect sets of elements and advance their research by moving through the periodic table. Players use energy to activate periodic trends and move in the corresponding directions. The conservation of energy forces players to spend carefully and play efficiently. The game ends when someone completes the research track or when a stack of goal cards is depleted. The player with the most victory points at the end of the game wins!

Exit the Game, 10+, 45+ mins, 1-4 players

Fancy a ride at the fair on the ghost train? Of course, but what if this ride suddenly stops and you become trapped in the scenery?
