News from invite-only industry convention Gathering of Friends has provided an insight into upcoming games over the next few years.  Some familiar names were on show, including a new Through the Ages and a Galaxy Trucker expansion. But there were also exciting new games, including first person shooter Adrenaline and western shootout game Flick ‘em Up, giving gamers much more to look forward to.

Colt Express Grows

Ludonaute have revealed details of an upcoming expansion for Colt Express, the game in which meeples raid a fantastic cardboard train in the Old West.  It adds horses, hostages and a stagecoach to the fun.  But best of all, it lets you play the heroic Marshall, one man against a world gone bad.

Predator Deck Building Game

Between Game of Thrones¸ Android Netrunner and Doomtown, deck building games are all the rage.  But that’s unlikely to reduce the popularity of the upcoming Predator game. The designers have just announced that this is coming to the end of its test phase and will let you play the predators or humans from the first two films – action movie fans rejoice!

Quick Kickstarters

Following the path of One Night Werewolf, One Night Resistance promises a faster version of the game of spies and intrigue.
