Gloomhaven: Forgotten Circles out now

A new class, 20 new scenarios, seven new monsters and 14 new items await you in Forgotten Circles: an expansion to BoardGamePrices’ biggest game of all time.

 

Forgotten Circles features twenty new scenarios that take place after the events of the original Gloomhaven campaign and involve one new character class — the Aesther Diviner — and her attempts to prevent an approaching calamity. The Diviner and her new mechanisms will be unlocked from the start, while the scenarios can only be played after you complete Scenario 51 in the original Gloomhaven.

Forgotten Circles is out now!


Gloomhaven Digital gets Summer release

This ambitious adaptation of the game to PC churns on, with an initial release due in the summer. Four of the game’s 17 classes will be available at first, with plans for all of them to eventually be released for free.

The adaptation looks amazing, but I don’t know that it can replace the feeling of dungeoneering with your friends around the table. Gloomhaven is a truly amazing game, so the more people experiencing it the better.


Announcing Scythe Modular Map

Scythe continues to be one of our most popular titles, and this new expansion seems to promise more longevity.

 

With customizable starting locations, new tiles to cover up the map, and new scoring bonuses, Stonemaier games promises millions of new ways to play the game of mechanized farming and warfare in steampunk Europa.

 

 

We’ll keep an eye on this and let you know more once we do.


Quickstarters

Viae: Roads of Rome is a strategy game of paving your way to victory, ahaha. Swords may win battles… but influence wins an empire.


 

Psi Wars is a card game featuring 3D card art and a cool ruleset. “Magic meets Splendor” announces one of the reviewers, and it looks amazing.


 

Era of Tribes is a civilization game going from the Neolithic to the High Middle Ages, with variable game length depending on how epic of an experience you desire.

Our resident reviewer Carol LaGrow has taken on Pandemic: Iberia! Purify water and build railroads; here’s why you should check out this historical co-operative game.
