Who you gonna call?


Renegade Game Studios (Clank!) have announced a Ghostbusters Card Game – designed by Daryl Andrews (Sagrada) and his co-designer from Roar: King of the Pride Erica Bouyouris.



A competitive, family friendly card game for 2-5 players, Ghostbuster’s lovely, cel-shaded artwork is by Jacqui Davis who previously illustrated Viticulture, Euphoria, and Ex Libris, which was also published by Renegade. We’ll know more as the game oozes closer to its Fall release.


Alien Frontiers: Factions Definitive Edition


Factions is an expansion to the smash hit dice rolling and worker placement game Alien Frontiers, which gathers all of the game’s faction expansions into a single box, which is on Kickstarter now.

Alien Frontiers has been going strong for 8 years, with a ton of releases and expansions, and the Factions Definitive Edition box gathers all 13 expansion and promo factions as well as adding a new one, the Mercury’s Angels.


Guild Master is a game of managing fantasy adventurers and expand your guild to allow your heroes to fulfill increasing difficult contracts and challenges while fending off your opponent’s guilds.


Be the first to leave Earth orbit and reach Mars in Project Mars, a game about the office work needed to reach the red planet. As a space contractor, launch projects into lower earth orbit and assemble the ship while making sure your staff are up to scratch.


A game of dungeon racing, betting, and sabotage that you can play in an hour. Spring traps, sell concessions, and place large wagers on which hero will cross the finish line! Dungeon Derby.

And that’s it for the news brief! We’ve got more great articles and features in the pipeline at BoardGamePrices, so thank you for reading!
