Great Western Trail

America in the 19th century: You are a rancher and repeatedly herd your cattle from Texas to Kansas City, where you send them off by train. This earns you money and victory points. Needless to say, each time you arrive in Kansas City, you want to have your most valuable cattle in tow. However, the "Great Western Trail" not only requires that you keep your herd in good shape, but also that you wisely use the various buildings along the trail. Also, it might be a good idea to hire capable staff: cowboys to improve your herd, craftsmen to build your very own buildings, or engineers for the important railroad line.

If you cleverly manage your herd and navigate the opportunities and pitfalls of Great Western Trail, you surely will gain the most victory points and win the game.

Madness at Midnight

In Madness At Midnight you control a gang of deranged cultists trying to summon their Lovecraftian god of choice.

You use action dice to visit different places in Arkham, activate location abilities, and initiate fights with the other players. Your aim is to fulfil sinister plots, defeat the feared investigators, and/or control key locations in order to gain Victory Points. The first player to reach 13 Victory Points wins the game and gets to end the world.

The core of the game is the custom action dice you use to move your cultists and to do stuff in Arkham; learn spells, corrupt the citizens, upgrade your cultists, and more. And the farther you get into the game, and the madder your cultists get, the less chance you have of the dice actually showing the results you need. Madness may be a stepping stone, but it’s also an obstacle you somehow have to manage if you want to be the best cult in Arkham.

This Belongs in a Museum

In This Belongs in a Museum, players compete to become the most revered archaeologist in the world. Traverse seas and mountains, and use airports to connect dig sites to your base camp.

Archeologists take turns placing base camp, dig site, and terrain tiles to connect and build their respective domains. Move your archeologist around the game space to collect artifacts for added victory points. But watch out for the mummies that can be placed in your path and break up your carefully connected sections!

This Belongs in a Museum is the third game in the Drawn & Quartered series of tile-laying games from Rather Dashing Games.

Masmorra: Dungeons of Arcadia

Masmorra: Dungeons of Arcadia is a fast-paced, dice-driven dungeon crawl board game set in the Arcadia Quest universe where players control Heroes that explore three levels of a dungeon filled with monsters, traps and treasure! Bosses, special rooms and countless surprises await the Heroes, but only one can be the first to reach the final level and become the undisputed champion of the Realm!

In Masmorra, players get to roll and re-roll a pool of Dice that guides their actions for their turn, and a unique dungeon is created as players lay down tiles while exploring it and fighting off monsters that are presented by special dice! But Heroes must also be aware of opponent Heroes, as they'll be able to use cards to disrupt their carefully laid-out plans!

Back in Stock! Since the beginning of time, two opposing forces have been the pillars of the universe and coexist in eternal balance. Our Goddess in her infinite wisdom has sent a group of Overseers to protect our world. They have the power to bend human traits to their will, and they will always battle between each other to create the perfect symmetry between virtues and vices of humankind. You will now choose whether to find the best balance — or completely crush it for your own good.

Overseers is a drafting and bluffing game with a twist. Each player represents an Overseer whose objective is to bend traits in their favor to create the most dominant combination of virtues and vices.

Stéphane Vachon's Planetarium

Matter swirls around a new born star, coalescing on the planetoids that orbit it. Planets evolve, grow and migrate in their orbits, forming a unique solar system by the end of every game. Planetarium is a game of creation, chaos and terraforming on the grandest scale.

Players are competing to crash combinations of elements onto planets that then allow them to play cards to evolve the planets in a variety of ways, with each player looking to evolve planets in the system to suit their own secret endgame goals.

MSRP: $39.99

 

 

Xenoshyft: Dreadmire Expansion

You survived the horrors of the Hive — now venture onto the new world of Genesis VII, a lush but deadly marsh planet featuring an entirely new ecosystem of horrors to overcome.

XenoShyft: Dreadmire, which can be played as a standalone game or mixed with assets from XenoShyft: Onslaught, brings a new XenoShyft experience to your tabletop, with eight new troop types, 20 new item types, and more than 40 fearsome new enemy types.

The XenoShyft game system combines classic deck-building and resource management with fast-paced combat and unique "base defense" elements. As the game progresses, each player builds up their deck of troop and item cards, which they will in turn use to defend the base against incoming enemies in deadly combat.

Rampaging Jotunn

In the distant past the Vikings came upon a great, hidden and uninhabited island, its verdant lands rich in resources. The Vikings hid the island’s location from the rest of the known world, killing all those who stumbled upon it. Soon after, many great clans established settlements across the island. Then the true master of the island revealed himself: Deep below the earth’s surface lay Ymir, the powerful Jotunn of old, slumbering since time began. Sensing the Vikings’ trespass, the giant awoke enraged and emerged a juggernaut of destruction as he rampaged across the island.

Skálds from the various settlements soon discovered how to control Ymir in a limited way. Though the Jotunn was weak of mind, he was strong in will and his appetite for destruction unquenchable. Consumed with greed, rival Skálds turned the lumbering colossus against their enemies in a race to conquer the island and seize the riches of the other settlements.

Arcadia Quest: Frost Dragon

The Frost Dragon is an expansion for both Arcadia Quest, and Arcadia Quest: Inferno.

The game comes with a large Dragon Mini, new loot cards, new tiles and the new type of cards, "Dragonstone cards".

After finishing a campaign, the players will get a new load out of Level 6 Upgrade cards, with a budget that is based on the amount of medals each guild completed during the campaign.

This last part of the fight doesn’t have PvP Quest Cards and all players have to kill the Dragon before he wrecks too much of the city! This is a fully cooperative fight, in which the players win as a group if they manage to kill the Dragon and they lose if too many parts of the city have been destroyed, or if the Dragon kills Heroes so much that they can’t find the resolve to continue the fight. In this ultimate showdown, the Dragon is controlled by a special set of Dragon Turn cards that will trigger special attacks and movements from the Frost Dragon. Players will need to make tough choices in the face of the Dragon's actions, deciding as a group where to focus their efforts (and who to sacrifice).

MSRP: $29.99

 

 

 

Arcadia Quest: Inferno

Inferno is a standalone expansion to Arcadia Quest. It is 100% compatible with the original base game and introduces four new Guilds: Sharks, Tigers, Crows, and Serpents. It features new types of heroes, such as Alchemists and Gladiators.

There is a new branching campaign system, and the storyline revolves around the guilds descending into a fiery abyss. There are Brimstone cards that make the terrain risky to navigate, which operate similarly to the Tombstone cards from Arcadia Quest: Beyond the Grave.

A new mechanism called "Damnation" will tempt the heroes with powerful weapons that can corrupt the characters over time or change the behavior of nearby monsters. There are also Angels, which are allied characters for the heroes to rescue, escort or assist. Working with the Angels can affect the branching campaign path system and even allow the player to recruit them for use in later missions.

MSRP: $99.99
