Latest Fantasy Flight Boardgames

Coming in September
Elder Sign
$34.95 SRP

Elder Sign lets players control investigators who must successfully endure adventures within the museum in order to gather clues, items, and the eldritch knowledge they need to seal the rifts between dimensions and prevent the Ancient One’s arrival.

A clever and thematic dice mechanic pits their exploration against monsters and the sheer difficulty of staying sane and healthy while investigating the most dangerous exhibits and most terrifying instances of insanity. Elder Sign recreates the Lovecraftian thrills of eerie suspense and mind-numbing horrors in a cooperative game players can finish in one to two hours.

Rules, card text, and innovative dice mechanics expertly designed by Richard Launius and Kevin Wilson, the designers of Arkham Horror, all blend in a game that’s quick to learn, quick to play, strategic enough to reward frequent replay, and eccentric enough to immerse players in the museum’s supernatural intrigue.

Talisman: The Dragon Expansion
$39.95 SRP

Playing with The Dragon expansion for Talisman, players will encounter even more choices and strategic challenges, including a new, dual-sided Inner Region for their heroes to conquer.

The alternate sides allow players to face familiar terrain along a path that requires all new tactics, or to venture into the Dragon Tower, where a hero’s every step meets opposition by the Dragon King’s minions and leads him ever closer to an ultimate confrontation with the Dragon King, himself. The Dragon brings to life six new characters to confront the draconic challenges that lie ahead.

Over 300 new tokens and cards expand the Draconic Lords’ influence over the land of Talisman and weave each Draconic Lord’s story. New rules pace the increase of the draconic threat, and the heroes’ quests become more and more dangerous as the dragons grow stronger. Now, for those brave adventurers who seek the Crown of Command, the quest means more than power and influence. It is a race to save the land from the Dragon King’s tyrannical rule.

Any hero who dares confront the Dragon King must be prepared for an epic battle!
