Monster Match
$17.99 SRP

    Monster Match is the fast-paced game of catching cute donut-eating monsters. Players roll the special "Monster Dice" and race to find a monster that matches the dice rolled. How fast can you find a monster with 3 eyes…or 4 arms? With each monster worth different donut points, do you search for just any matching monsters or try to find the monster with the most donuts? Be quick, but also be strategic! Go too fast and you might miss a monster worth more points!

    Beta Colony

    $59.95 SRP

    In Beta Colony, you play as one of five Directors working to create prosperous colonies. If you earn the most Confidence Points (CP), you will be elected as the first leader of Victus. Players will collect the needed building materials to produce and erect colonization pods – Defense Stations, Science and Tech Towers, Living Quarters, Agriculture Pods, and Water Treatment Centers – on the varied terrain of Victus.

    Using a unique "rolldell" mechanism (dice + rondel), Beta Colony is a mid-weight strategic game for players of all levels. Each round, the start player rolls their set of four colored dice. All other players duplicate that roll with their own dice. Players take two actions each round, one action at a time in turn order, with each action using two dice. Players will use one die to move and one die to activate the location to which they moved. Die color and value affect how each of the seven unique locations are used. Players will build colonization pods at each of three colonies to gain the confidence of the settlers and lead them to glory!

    Star Trek: Galactic Enterprises

    From the mind of Christophe Boelinger, a veteran game designer beloved for his games that bring hours of fun to gaming night, comes Star Trek: Galactic Enterprises! On the Deep Space 9 station, Ferengi wheel and deal legal and illegal items in order to accrue the most profit. Because as you know, a Ferengi without profit is no Ferengi at all.(Rule of
    Acquisition #18).

    3 to 8 Ferengi will buy and sell their wares, trying to monopolize a particular item for greater profit. However, once other Ferengi get those same items for sale, it becomes a matter of negotiation: do you work together to gain the same profit or do you agree to cooperate, then sell at a lower price to steal all the profit for yourself? After all, opportunity, plus
    instinct, equals profit (Rule of Acquisition #9).

    Be wary of special action cards that can mess with the business of other Ferengi. The bigger the smile, the sharper the knife (Rule of Acquisition #48).

    The Ferengi who has earned the most profit becomes the First Clerk!

    In Star Trek: Galactic Enterprises, everything is for sale - even friendship (Rule of Acquisition #121).

    Seal Team Flix

    SEAL TEAM FLIX is a fully co-operative or solo tactical dexterity game that pits 1-4 players against an eco-terrorist group called, Gaia’s Hope. Players will travel modern through urban landscapes, such as an office building, warehouse, bank vault and three others.

    Accuracy plays a huge role in winning, and this game has a prominent dexterity factor that emulates the importance of skill and speed.

    The game has two modes: Campaign and Skirmish, in which players embark on an 8-Mission non-linear campaign or simply choose one of the 17 Missions to play as a skirmish. In addition, the game’s difficulty scales both with the number of SEALs playing as well as three optional Difficulty levels.

    Each mission is objective-based, with primary and secondary objectives which need to be resolved to successfully complete each mission. For example, in some missions you must locate and acquire intelligence against Gaia’s Hope. In others, you must diffuse time bombs or rescue hostages.

    While you are given intelligence at the beginning of each mission as to the number and nature of the objectives that need to be completed, every game will be different because you will never know where on the map they are until you physically locate them with your SEALs.

    Museum Rush! New from Ninja Division!

    Order by Date: March 30, 2018
    Street Date: April 18, 2018 

    Museum Rush
    $39.99 SRP

    Museum Rush is a competitive thieving game where players race against time to steal treasures from a museum while avoiding cameras, guards, and greedy rivals. Luckily these dastardly robbers have an array of items to help them get the better of the guards and their fellow thieves, such as sultry Llamas, mighty Underwear and the high-tech Cardboard Box.

    Each turn you pick up new cards, move and probably try to swipe a priceless exhibit. Stealing, cracking locks and getting caught on camera will have the guards running in your direction, so hopefully you’ve picked up some handy item to deal with them… If you get caught, you’ll be thrown out of the museum and your ill-gotten gains confiscated. You’ll just have to break in again and steal some more! Make sure you’ve escaped with your loot before the time runs out – when the last Clock card is drawn the game is over, and the player who escapes with the most valuable loot and treasure wins.
