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.

Two classic social deduction games get a facelift as Coup: Rebellion G54 and One Night: Revolution both arrive on shelves.
