Look what we (finally) got our hands on!

Risk Legacy

How will you shape your world? In Risk Legacy, every game you play will change every future game. A decision you make in Game 1 could come back to haunt you in Game 10. The risks you take in Risk Legacy are not like those in any other board game. You and the other players will shape how your world evolves: its history, its cities, even its factions and how they fight. Cards and stickers will come into play. Cards will go out of play forever. You don't forget past betrayals — and neither does the game. Unlock new rules and watch events unfold as you play more games. No two games will ever be the same. Play your game. Write your history.

Last NEW before the NEW NEW of the NEW Year.

Ascension - Storm of Souls

Samael is defeated, but the world of Vigil has been left in turmoil in his wake. In Storm of Souls, players will see different factions rise to prominence with the new Event cards, and have powerful new Trophy Monsters to hunt! In addition to the brand-new mechanics, players will also see powerful new takes on popular mechanics from past Ascension releases.


Features

  • A complete 1-4 player game playable on its own or with other Ascension™ games!
  • Combine with other Ascension™ games to play with up to 6 players!
  • All the fun of an open-ended card game without buying limitless cards--everything's contained in one box!
  • Setup in minutes with no unique pregame preparation
  • Play in less than 30 minutes

 

Dungeon Petz

The game consists of several rounds in which players use unusual worker placement mechanisms (players simultaneously prepare different sized groups of imps in order to play sooner than others). To become the leader of imp family that has just started a new business, they will have to prepare themselves for the uneasy task of raising creature cubs and pleasing their different needs represented by cards in order to sell them as grown scary creatures to Dungeon Lords. In the meantime they also attend various contests in which they show off their pets, scoring additional points.

...and just meeting the Christmas deadline...

Puerto Rico Anniversary Edition

This is the same great game with expansions and very special components!

Puerto Rico Anniversary Edition has completely redesigned components and artwork. The cardboard doubloons are now sixty metal coins, while the fifty octagonal resources have been replaced with colored wooden crates.
The building tiles are now illustrated, and the cardboard for those tiles and other components are thicker to give the pieces more heft. The individual player boards, the VP tokens, the ships and other components have also been redesigned and have new artwork.

PR:AE also includes two expansions that were previously released separately. New buildings that first appeared in 2002, and the Nobles expansion from alea's Schatzkiste collection of game expansions.

New stuff just in time for Christmas!

Through skillful trading and re-trading, each player attempts to gain the right combination of colored stones from the Bank to purchase the wares displayed in the Bazaar. Values of the various wares are determined by the number of stones the purchaser holds following his transaction. Trading is governed by the current rates posted at the Exchange. When all the wares from two of the stalls have been sold, the Bazaar is closed, the game ends, and the player with the highest score wins!

 

A World of Beautiful Colors comes alive as players choose commission cards picturing 34 of the finest European art works of the past six centuries. Players score their commissions by mixing primary colors through clever tile placement, and recreating the palette of colors used by the masters who created these works. Explore the paintings, palettes and pasts of the artists in this unique and challenging game for the whole family.

While placing hexagonal pieces to gain palette (color) cards, players become familiar with the different color combinations that produce the many hues of an artist’s palette... all listed on the Player Reference Card. Players also learn to recognize many great artists and their works as they complete commissions.

 

Alien Frontiers is a game of resource management, worker placement, and area control set in a retro-future scifi universe.
The dice you receive at the start of the game represent the spaceships in your fleet. Docking your ships at the orbital facilities will earn resources, expand your fleet, raid your opponents, discover alien technology, trade commodities, and build colony domes to land on the planet.
Winning will require careful consideration as you assign your fleet, integrate the alien technology and territory bonuses into your expansion plans, and block the other players from building colonies of their own.

 

In Octopus’ Garden, players take the role of Octopuses competing to create the most beautiful gardens. Attract colourful seahorses and clown fish, without losing pearl-producing oysters to the hungry sea stars!

Players chose which plant and animal tiles to purchase from a central market and then decide how best to arrange them in their own garden. Careful planning is required to attract seahorses and clownfish, to protect pearl-producing oysters from the sea stars, and to avoid startling delicate feather worms.

 

The Pathfinder RPG Bestiary 3 is the third indispensable volume of monsters for use with the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game and serves as a companion to the Pathfinder RPG Core Rulebook and Pathfinder RPG Bestiary. This imaginative tabletop game builds upon more than 10 years of system development and an Open Playtest featuring more than 50,000 gamers to create a cutting-edge RPG experience that brings the all-time bestselling set of fantasy rules into the new millennium.

 

Flash Point: Fire Rescue is a fully cooperative game, everyone plays on the same firefighting team - win or lose together!   Every turn is filled with the tension of having to fight the fire back, rescuing victims or investigating points of interest.  Players can ride the ambulance to safety or fire the engine's deck gun in a desperate attempt to control the blaze.  No two games are ever the same - and with two rulesets (family, & experienced) and 3 different difficulty levels there is a challenge to be had for all.
