Board Game News Brief: January 17th, 2018

Posted Thursday, 18-Jan-2018

Giants come to Kingdomino, a new game from the designer of Century: Spice Road, and Cry Havoc’s designer takes to the stars in the News Brief.

King/Queendomino to get Age of Giants expansion

Bruno Cathala’s hit tile layer has received its first announced expansion: Age of Giants!



Promising to bring some destruction to the game of peaceful kingdom (or queendom) building, Age of Giants is compatible with both the male and female monarch editions of the game.


Kolossal Games signs Cry Havoc designer’s Imperius

“Diplomacy cuts just as sharply as the weapons of an army, but only half as sharp as the assassin’s blade. There are wheels within wheels and machinations beyond your view.”



So begins Imperius, a game coming to Kickstarter later this year that re-implements Grant Rodiek’s self-published Solstice. The Cry Havoc co-designer just celebrated the release of the Aftermath expansion to the critically regarded area control war game.

We’ll know more about Imperius soon!

Announcing Emerson Matsuuchi’s Reef!


From the designer of Century: Spice Road comes a game about being a coral reef!



aaand that’s all we know.  From the suitable age range, it’s kid friendly (8+) and plays in 30 to 45 minutes. The artist is Chris Quilliams who’s done art for Pandemic, Pandemic Legacy, Carcassonne, Merchants and Marauders, Flick ‘Em Up! and Azul – quite the portfolio!



Quick Kickstarters

Nemesis is a space-horror science fiction survival game that, well…



It has minis, amazing ones, and lots of lovingly illustrated dark gritty science fiction art. It’s from the creators of This War of Mine and Lords of Hellas.

A guitar themed Euro game in which players use real picks, chords, and play songs to gain the most fame, Re-Chord looks absolutely stunning!




Spirits of the Forest, pretty much speaks for itself.



With its stunning art and high quality components all in a simple to learn package, this looks like it could be a real winner of a set collection abstract.

Community Centerpiece
