The Golden Ages drew a lot of positive attention with its combination of exploration across an expanding board and building up your empire.

 

Originally released in a limited print run in time for Spiel 2014, this game drew a lot of positive attention with its combination of exploration across an expanding board and building up your empire. At a ninety minute playing time, it has the advantage of being faster to play than most civilization games, for when you want to dominate the world in a single evening.

 

Smash Up and Munchkin Combine

AEG has provided a series of previews for their new expansion for Paul Peterson’s Smash Up, which combines the deck shuffling game with the classic comedy dungeon crawler Munchkin.

Smash Up: Munchkin adds treasures and monsters to the mix in true Munchkin style, along with extra minions and actions such as the Hobbit-style unexpected party. With the John Kovalic art that makes Munchkin so appealing, it’s one of the most fun looking game expansions of the year.

 

Join the Age of Ultron with Dice Masters

If you loved Avengers: Age of Ultron and want a way to keep re-living it outside the cinema, then Wizkids has you covered. They’ve announced Dice Masters: Age of Ultron, an expansion for their dice battling superheroes game that can also be played as a stand-alone game.

The new Data and Destiny card game expansion offers a greater variety of play styles.

 

This really digs into the cyberpunk theme of controlling knowledge by revealing more about information-focused mega-corp NBN, whose media power and advertisements may make this dystopian future feel uncomfortably close to modern reality. It also adds three new runner mini-factions, a first since the original set, for greater variety of play styles.
