From Asmadi Games and designer Carl Chudyk comes Mottainai. A reimplementation of the legendary Glory to Rome, the theme has been shifted to monks in a temple trying to complete simple tasks such as praying and making pots.
Featuring Glory to Rome’s signature mechanic, cards in Mottainai can be used in multiple ways and features a lot of interesting decisions in a light package.
Play as the Ragebarian, Prestidigimancer, or Paladude in Kevin Wilson’s lighthearted dungeon romp.
The Hunt Begins is a tactical board game for 1 to 4 players featuring buckets of miniatures and a story campaign, whereas Legendary Encounters is a continuation of the Legendary deckbuilding system that spawned Marvel Legendary and the previous Legendary Encounters: Alien.
Battle for glory and earn your right to be called Champion! A viking worker placement and dice rolling game, Champions of Midgard is a medium weight euro with a decidedly amerigame theme.
Carve runes and build ships, then send your warriors to defeat monsters and raid neighboring villages in your quest to claim glory!
From the designers of Space Cadets and the company that brought you Survive: Escape from Atlantis comes a new way to fight for your lives!
In Survive: Space Attack, players must flee the Space Station Atlantis as it comes under attack by alien forces. Featuring a double sided board and new combat rules, players fight to be the first one to escape the doomed station.
Flight introduces the ability to create Avians, who can fly further to feed but have higher food requirements. Supercup gives players more things to bet on, such as the positions of specific camels, and even allows collusion with other players.
Rebellion G54 updates the game of bluffing and deduction in classic Coup by giving 25 new character powers and promises a more advanced experience, whereas One Night Revolution gives players special roles and tasks them with finding the informant among them – if any exist at all.
