New from Alderac Entertainment Group! Smash Up: Science Fiction Double Feature!

Coming in March!

Smash Up: Expansion 3: Science Fiction Double Feature
$19.99 SRP

Smash Up is back with even more wild factions in the mix!  Science Fiction Double Feature brings four new decks to the base-smashing business with abilities unlike those seen before.  Time Travelers allow you to reuse your cards time and time again. Cyborg Apes take actions that attach to your minions to a whole new level.  Super Spies use their mojo in espionage to plot out the future of you and your opponents, while finally the Shapeshifters could be anyone...

Science Fiction Double Feature is an expansion to the wildly popular card game Smash Up. This expansion features enough for two players right out of the box, and can be combined with any Smash Up set to support up to 4 players.

4 new factions with 88 cards

Don’t Forget the Base Game – Available Now!
Smash Up
$29.99 SRP

The “shuffle building” game Smash Up starts with a simple premise: take the twenty-card decks of two factions, shuffle them into a forty-card deck, then compete to smash more Bases than your opponents! Each faction brings a different game mechanism into play; pirates move cards, zombies bring cards back from the discard pile, dinosaurs have huge power and every combination of factions brings a different play experience.

During play, Base cards (each with their own difficulties and abilities) are in play. You attempt to have the most power on the Base from your minions when the Base is smashed. Sounds easy? How easy is it when an opponent’s Alien-Ninja decides to Beam Up your minions to other Bases - flat out Assassinate them? What about when the Pirate-Dinosaur player Full Sails in and releases King Rex to stomp your minions into the ground, or when the Wizard-Zombies use their Mystic Power to create an Outbreak, suddenly flooding minions onto the Base from the discard pile? Or what if you faced a Zombie-Dinosaur player instead and he created an Outbreak of massive beasts all at once?!?

When a Base is smashed, each player in first, second and third place scores points.

With eight different factions, Smash Up includes dozens of combinations to try. Pirate-Aliens play different than Ninja-Aliens, for instance. Which will you use to smash up your opponents?

New from Iello! Fun Farm!

Coming in February!
Fun Farm
$29.99 SRP

The animals have escaped from the farm! You need to bring them back before they get into trouble and you want to do so faster than your opponents so that you can save more than they can!

In the fast-catching game Fun Farm, players compete to spot and catch the animal shown on the cards before all their opponents. Each round, the active player reveals the top card from the deck, placing it next to any others still on the table. Each card depicts an animal, a black die (showing one color on this die), and a white die (showing one color on this die). The player then rolls the black die and the white die. If a die depicted on a card matches the color rolled on that die, players race to grab the animal toy from the table that matches the animal depicted on the card. Whoever does so first claims the card, and once the deck runs out, whoever has the most cards wins!

2-10 players

New from Cool Mini or Not! KaosBall Core Box - Season 1!

Coming in February!

KaosBall Core Box - Season 1
$99.99 SRP

Kaosball is a new kind of fantasy sports game, combining rugby-style passing finesse and first person shooter domination-style scoring. The result is a tense game of skill, bluffing, luck, and lethal brutality like you’ve never played before!

Brought to you by acclaimed designer Eric M. Lang, Kaosball uses exciting card-based play mechanisms to put players in the role of a coach, managing their unique, game-altering team from scrimmage to sudden death period to outscore their opponents. Players need to balance scoring and killing their opponents, using powerful cheating effects all the while – as long as you have the money to pay off the ref. No two matches will play the same!

Kaosball includes multiple modes of play: traditional head-to-head, partnerships-based alliances, and “Maximum Kaos” three or four-player mode; 30-60 exhibition games complete with a pregame draft for ringers and team upgrades; and league play with up to eight players and upgrades that stay in place from game to game, creating a unique sense of progression.

-1 game board
-60+ plastic miniatures
-4 unique teams (Demons, Amazons, Vampires, & Ogres), each with a magnetic player board
-Magnetic team upgrade tokens, for customizing your team
-60 cards
-At least *6 superstar ringer figures, with their own game cards (*final number to be determined)

New from Game Salute! Countdown: Special Ops!

Coming in February!

Countdown: Special Ops
$50.00 SRP

In the modular game Countdown: Special Ops, you are in charge of a special ops team with a special mission! Find hidden bombs and dismantle them, help hostages into safety, or take out terrorist leaders. Due to the high variation in goals, targets, threats and specific circumstances, players need to choose their set-up and strategy each time they start a mission or a campaign. Don’t just throw in grenades with your buster at public places such as airports and train stations, or else civilians might get hurt, resulting in negative points on your mission balance. Develop your primary skill, but don’t neglect your attack power, defense power and other skills if you want to stay alive in this thrilling new game.

Countdown: Special Ops is fully modular, with players being able to create their own game by adjusting four different aspects of play:

1.       Game situations: With more than 200 playing cards, the challenges and threats are different each time you play.
2.       Game mode: You can play a single mission, a campaign or a scenario; each game mode has its own level and duration, and you’re advised to start with a single mission on the lowest level (green).
3.       Level up: Did you succeed a few times on level green? If so, you might want to try the next (orange) level or even a scenario, that is, three missions in a row with increasing difficulty!
4.       Goals: Even players’ goals can be altered. Countdown: Special Ops is a co-operative game, but if you’d like to change the rules, you could add one or two traitors to the team and play “Traitor Mode”.

You can develop your own Special Op by improving his or her skills. This is done in scenario or campaign play. This brings out interesting aspects of the game in which you have to choose how many risk you want to take to gain extra experience or if you want to move slow and stay alive at all cost...

This variation, combined with the 30-minute time limit per mission, makes the experience of a mission “feel” like an actual PC game in many aspects. Smart development is essential to survive the missions on higher threat levels.

New from Asmodee! Lewis & Clark!

Coming in March!

Lewis & Clark
$49.99 SRP

On November 30, 1803, the United States purchased Louisiana from Napoleon. U.S. President Thomas Jefferson decided to send two explorers – Meriwether Lewis and William Clark – to discover this huge terra incognita. Lewis & Clark is a board game in which the players manage an expedition intended to cross the North American continent. Their goal is to be the first to reach the Pacific. Each one has his own Corps of Discovery that will be completed by the Native Americans and the trappers met during the journey. He has to cleverly manage his characters and also the resources he finds along the way. Beware, sometimes frugality is better than abundance.

Lewis & Clark features dual use cards. To be activated, one card must be combined with another one, which becomes unavailable for a while. Thus, players are faced with a constant dilemma: play a card or sacrifice it. During the game, each player acquires character cards that enlarge his hand, building a crew that gives him more options but it needs to be optimized as he will recycle his cards more slowly. This new “hand building” mechanism fits strongly the historical background. Since the aim of the game is to be the first on the Pacific coast, the timing and the opportunistic use of the other players’ positions are crucial.

1-4 players
Ages 14+

5 scout figures
5 camp tokens

New from Queen Games! Tortuga!

Coming Soon!

$49.99 SRP

In Tortuga, you are a swashbuckling buccaneer trying to safely transport your acquired treasures to the legendary pirate haven of Tortuga before other buccaneers (your fellow players) try to capture them from you.

Tortuga has very little downtime as buccaneers roll their dice (a unique color for each player) behind player screens and decide simultaneously what resource to place on their player board: treasure, crew, ships, sabers and cannons. All are important, and you need to watch what your opponents are doing lest that treasure you just acquired find its way to another “rightful” owner!

Harun al-Rashid was the fifth Great Caliph of the Abbasid Dynasty, and he ruled over the Middle East between the years 786 and 809.

His life and his famous court are said to be the inspiration for the “One Thousand and One Nights” collection of folk stories.  This game allows you to play the role of a faction whose life, trade and intrigues have only one purpose: to grow rich and powerful, and to ensure the favor of the mighty ruler.

In Al Rashid, players will take the role of the heads of powerful families, and will use the members of their families for trading, traveling, and ultimately trying to exercise influence over the court of the powerful ruler. Of course, there are costs to sustain, so you will also have to turn part of your efforts to the trade of luxury wares: a profitable, albeit dangerous, activity! Will you have what it takes to turn the court in your favor?

New from Asmodee! Splendor!

Coming in March!

$39.99 SRP

As a wealthy Renaissance merchant, acquire mines and transportation, hire artisans and woo the nobility. Create the most fantastic jewelry to become the best-known merchant of them all! Acquire precious stones to trade them for development cards. Use development cards to acquire more gem stones. Use your gems and gold to create the most fantastic jewelry, and appeal to the nobles to gain the prestige you need to win.

Splendor is a fast-paced and addictive game of chip-collecting and card development. Players are merchants of the Renaissance trying to buy gem mines, means of transportation, shops; all in order to acquire the most prestige points. If you’re wealthy enough, you might even receive a visit from a noble at some point, which of course will further increase your prestige.

On your turn, you may (1) collect chips (gems), or (2) buy and build a card, or (3) reserve one card. If you collect chips, you take either three different kinds of chips or two chips of the same kind. If you buy a card, you pay its price in chips and add it to your playing area. To reserve a card, you place it in front of you face down for later building; this costs you a round, but you also get gold in the form of a joker chip, which you can use as any gem.

All of the cards you buy increase your wealth as they give you a permanent gem bonus for later buys; some of the cards also give you prestige points. In order to win the game, you must reach 15 prestige points before your opponents do.

2-4 players
Ages 10+
