A new Star Wars game, a new X-Files game, and a whole boatload of expansions are headed your way!
Put to sail by Calvin Wong
Designed by Dead of Winter’s Jonathan Gilmour, Missile Command is a competitive game of intercontinental war. Would you like to play a game?
As global tensions mount, leaders of powerful nations sit ready to defend their people or destroy their enemies. Alliances are formed, yet fragile. Deals made, but not always upheld. Diplomacy is just as important as strategic planning and procuring armaments. The missiles are at your command and the choice is yours: fire on your enemies or betray your allies.
After making a splash at Essen, the Uwe Rosenberg game of walking through a forest is out at last!
Indian Summer is a follow up to Cottage Garden where players must collect berries, nuts, mushrooms, and feathers as they take a walk through the autumnal forest. Cover your forest board completely with leaves and find treasures hidden inside – who will be the first to finish their walk and head home for a good book and some hot tea?
The Galaxy is vast, rich and open to any species who discovers space flight… but nine Elder Races are expanding through space, ready to assimilate or exterminate anybody who stands in their way.
Drawing inspiration from classic science-fiction, Master of the Galaxy is a board game of technology, conquest, and resources. Make progress as you spread your people across the stars, develop your science, or embark on methodical extermination of your rivals – you choose!
Buy Master of the Galaxy to prove that you’re the greatest faction in the galaxy, and achieve dominance in territory, diplomacy, economics, or science.
One-hundred years ago, The Infinity Engine was shattered and its reality-bending shards have destroyed most of the world. Now, it falls upon you to gather your forces, defeat your adversaries, and rebuild the Infinity Engine!
Shards of Infinity is a deck building card game of strategy and customization – add to your deck of allies, mercenaries, and champions – while gaining mastery over your powers to let even your weakest cards progress in power through the game.
Will you neutralize your opponents before they can fully master their Infinity Shard? Buy Shards of Infinity for a game of careful planning and aggressive tactics.
Take command of the ground war with Star Wars: Legion, the two player board game of land-based battles with iconic characters and weapons. Whether elite Rebel strike teams or a legion of stormtroopers – from Luke Skywalker to Darth Vader himself, command the battlefield and prove your skills at fire and maneuver.
With dozens of unique miniatures and plenty of room for you to customize each unit, buy Star Wars Legion to replicate the iconic battles of the Star Wars universe – whether you choose to fight for the monolithic, oppressive Galactic Empire or the ragtag Rebel Alliance.
The case is solved and the files are about to be closed – but the FBI must be convinced that Mulder’s theory holds water.
The X-Files: Conspiracy Theory – Everything is Connected is a party style board game where players take turns being Fox Mulder as he uses the provided clues to explain his conspiracy theory to his FBI superiors. But reputation is everything at the FBI, and Mulder’s superiors are more interested in voting with the room than with their gut. Mulder weaves together the conspiracy, and the superiors must deduce the way the rest of the room will vote…because the only thing worse than being an outlier is being a nut-case like Fox Mulder.
Humanity has stumbled onto a new discovery – a mysterious resource, hidden deep under the surface of a distant planet. The race for wealth and new opportunities begins!
Alien Artifacts: Discovery moves forward the storyline of the Alien Artifacts universe and introduces a new type of card: Alien Resources as well as adding fifty cards to the base game.
Sands of Dorne is a deluxe expansion for A Game of Thrones: The Card Game, bringing House Martell squarely into the sunlight and giving them the cards they need to go toe-to-toe with any other faction in the game. Here, you’ll find powerful new versions of House Martell’s most iconic and dangerous characters, all intent on bloody revenge.
Buy Sands of Dorne to recruit iconic characters Doran Martell, The Red Viper, Ellaria Sand, Quentyn Martell, Nymeria Sand, and Areo Hotah. Every other faction in the game also receives two new non-loyal cards in this deluxe expansion, plus a brand-new agenda and an assortment of neutral plots.
The Android Universe heads to Africa with its cyberpunk vision of a future Uganda. The second space elevator is being constructed on Lake Victoria, and with it a new future for the entire human race.
Council of the Crest is the third Data Pack in the Kitara Cycle for Android: Netrunner, where NBN is getting into education, the Anarchs get a whole suite of new virus-boosting cards, and Weyland takes its warfare into meatspace.
Buy Council of the Crest to continue your journey into the Kitara Cycle. Death and Taxes, White Hats, and Corporate Grants await you.
