new in stock: the return of nexus ops!

Nexus Ops

Nexus Ops is a board game of fierce sci-fi battles and fantastic alien creatures in which two to four players control factions of corporate troops and strange life forms on an alien moon. Players deploy troops from their home base to explore the landscape, mine resources, purchase troops, win battles, and fulfill missions, all in an attempt to gather enough power to claim the moon for themselves.

This new edition of this classic title features detailed plastic figures, stunning new art, a clarified rulebook, and a host of optional rules and variants. Race to the monolith in King of the Hill mode, face the peril of the deadly Vortex, or introduce a full set of alternate unit powers!

New releases for the week!

Ora et Labora

In Ora et Labora, each player is head of a monastery in the Medieval era that acquires land and constructs buildings – little enterprises that will gain resources and profit. The goal is to build a working infrastructure and manufacture prestigious items – such as books, ceramics, ornaments and relics – to gain the most victory points at the end of the game.

 

 

Ticket to Ride - India

Embark on a tour of Ian Vincent's India and discover one of the most densely populated and colorful countries of the world. The year is 1911, and the world is changing fast in the British Raj. Will you complete your Grand Tour in time, or lose to more cunning – or simply better connected – opponents?

Also includes Alan R. Moon's terrific map of Switzerland, specifically designed for 2 and 3 players and made famous by Ticket to Ride Online! Discover Switzerland's challenging geography with its verdant valleys and mountain passes, as well as the charm of its neighboring countries.

 

Welcome to Walnut Grove

Walnut Grove is a cross between jigsaw puzzles and worker placement, with the players as farmers who find their plots merging into a single landscape as time passes and their holdings grow. Come fall they must head to the city with their goods as winter will soon return.

Lots of power on grids! 

 

POWER GRID - THE FIRST SPARKS: As clan leader you are responsible for the well-being of your clan during the Stone Age. You need to develop new hunting technologies and get new knowledge, to successfully hunt food or to learn to control fire. With help of these skills you will harvest enough food to feed your clan and to spread it far enough to reach new hunting areas.

POWER GRID - THE ROBOTS: You finally have a new opponent for your Power Grid games: a robot that acts as an additional player.  Thanks to his different actions and special abilities he is a strong opponent. You will manage the robot's "decisions" and can use him to act against the other opponent(s).
   Power Grid - The Robots is designed especially for two players, but you can use a robot with up to five human players, too. You can even use more than one robot in a game.
   The robot consists of five tiles, one tile with rules for each phase plus a special ability, which the robot uses during the game. (from BoardGameGeek.com)
