It’s the News Brief: Card Game Edition! Aeon’s End & Baseball Highlights 2045 receive new boxes, a Scott Pilgrim card game, and an expansion for Adrenaline is teased.

Apart from showing off the paint job on the game’s instructor character, Violet, the Czech Games staff are teasing a new expansion prototype. Judging by the extra large base on the character, my guess is… team vs team combat.
Adrenaline is a surprisingly easy to pick up first person shooter based board game with fun, frantic gameplay and all the stress of player vs player combat removed – but with hidden depths. You should give it a look, it was one of the best games released last year.
Deck building with video game inspired combo moves designed by Gloom mastermind Keith Baker, SPPLCG sounds like it’s going to be a blast.
Scott Pilgrim is the story of a twenty something guy. He has it all – his own place, a band, cool friends – and then he falls in love with Ramona Flowers. But in order to date her, he must defeat her seven evil exes, who have formed a League of Evil Exes to kick his butt. (Seriously, this is the plot)
The game of simulating futuristic baseball seasons Baseball Highlights 2045 is getting a Spring Training starter box and plenty of new expansions.
Whether or not you like baseball isn’t a requirement for enjoying this game as you try and build your team of cyborg, robot, and all-natural stars to take on other teams and win the 2045 World Series!
Entropy: Worlds Collide is a tiny card game with strategic bite as players try to outthink each other. Did I mention how good it looks?
“Take risks, deceive and outwit your opponents to save your world, and earn your right to return home.” reads the official description. Can’t get much more succinct than that!
Rob Daviau’s Stop Thief is now on Kickstarter. It’s not a card game, but it still looks awesome.
Designer of Pandemic Legacy, Stop Thief is an update for the 1979 classic board game with modern gameplay, new components and art, and an app instead of an electronic sound device. Chase thieves. Stop them. Get rewarded! Stop Thief!
