ACD Exclusives from Aporta Games! Santa Maria and Destination X!

Release Date: December 2017

ACD Distribution Exclusives!

Santa Maria

$54.99 SRP

Santa Maria is the #2 most anticipated game for Essen/Spiel from The Dice Tower!

Santa Maria is a streamlined, medium complexity euro-game in which each player establish and develop a colony. The game features elements of dice drafting and strategic engine building. The game is low on luck, has no direct destructive player conflict, and all components are language independent. 

You expand your colony by placing tetris-like pieces with buildings on your colony board. Dice (representing migrant workers) are used to activate buildings: Each die activates a complete row or column of buildings in your colony. The buildings are activated in order (left to right / top to bottom), and the die is then placed on the last activated building to block this space. It is therefore crucial where you put new buildings in your colony, and also the order in which you use the dice. 

You will produce resources, form shipping routes, send out conquistadors, and improve your religious power to recruit monks. Each recruited monk may be trained either as a scholar (for special abilities), as missionaries (for immediate rewards), or be appointed as a bishop (for possible end-game points). The player who have accumulated the most happiness after three rounds, wins the game. The available specialists, bishops and buildings varies from game to game, which makes for near endless replayability.

Destination X

$25.00 SRP

Destination X is a game of one-against-many: One player takes the moderator role as a spy on the run, while the remaining players are detectives who must cooperate and use their deductive skills and geographical knowledge to track down the spy and identify their secret destination.

At the beginning of each round, six destination cards are placed face up on the table. The spy secretly chooses one of the destinations, and flips to the chosen country's page in the handbook. Each detective is given three informant cards, and in turn each detective must play an informant to get information about the spy's secret destination. The spy must find the relevant information in the handbook and answer truthfully. The informants may provide information on various aspects such as population, industry, religion, history, economy, and so on. After a detective has played an informant, the detective must also eliminate one of the destinations on the table.

At any time, the detectives can decide to guess on the spy's destination. If they guess correctly, the detectives win the round; otherwise the spy wins. The spy also wins if the detectives run out of informant cards, so the detectives must manage their resources well and not spend too much time or else the spy will manage to get away. The first side to win three rounds wins the game.

No prior geographic knowledge is needed to play, but having some insight might still help you in deducing the spy's destination. Since Destination X is a team-based game, it can be played in groups of any number of players.

New Warmachine & Hordes Miniatures from Privateer Press!

Order by Date: November 15, 2017 
Release Date: December 2017 

Hordes: Trollbloods: Dire Troll Brawler Heavy Warbeast
$34.99 SRP

Dire Troll Brawlers go to battle wielding oversized flails made from stout iron chain and scavenged scrap metal. Bellowing primitive war cries, brawlers hurl themselves at any opponent, swinging these chains in sweeping, unpredictable arcs. What these trolls lack in intelligence they compensate for with raw delight in brutal combat and laying their opponents low.

As a non-character warbeast with a two-inch melee range, the Dire Troll Brawler is a solid choice for a variety of warlocks. Ragnor from the Battlegroup Box (PIP 71099), Hoarluk Doomshaper, Rage of Dhunia (PIP 31074), and Madrak Ironhide, World Ender (PIP 71033) all get great use out of the Brawler, given how they can enhance warbeasts to great effect. 

Hordes: Minions: Farrow Valkyries Unit (3)

$27.99 SRP

Determined, steadfast, and loyal, the farrow Valkyries make up the honor guard of the independent farrow warlock Helga the Conqueror. With hammer and cannon they beat back the Conqueror's enemies, and with their shields and flesh they protect her from harm. When it serves Helga's purposes, she has also been known to loan these prized warriors to her allies.

Farrow Valkyries naturally wish to be paired with Helga the Conqueror (PIP 75050) due to the innate benefits she provides. They also pair well with Lord Carver (PIP 75027) due to his Feat and their general staying power on the table.

Warmachine: Retribution of Scyrah: Harpy Light Warjack

$22.99 SRP

Representing an expansion of House Vyre's myrmidon production in support of the Retribution of Scyrah, the Harpy is a formidable machine that generates deadly blasts of wind designed to hurl adversaries back, if they are not immediately torn apart. It is a sleek engine of death favored by the more tactically minded warcasters of Ios.

The Harpy pairs well with any warcaster that can increase ranged potential, such as Ossyan (PIP 35046), Ravyn (PIP 35004), or Issyria (PIP 35058). The Thunderbolt ability also makes Harpy 'jacks good at scenario play in Steamroller events and can be solid choice for a House Shyeel Artificer (PIP 35041) to 'jack marshal.

Maximum Apocalypse and Expansion! New from Rock Manor Games!

Order by Date: October 31, 2017
Release Date: November 2017 
Maximum Apocalypse Board Game
$49.00 SRP

Maximum Apocalypse is a cooperative roguelike adventure game set amid the backdrop of 4 apocalyptic scenarios. As you explore the post-apocalyptic world, one to six survivors work together to complete mission objectives. On each turn, a player can use up to four actions to explore the map, play cards, equip weapons, scavenge for resources, draw cards or battle roaming monsters. Picking a unique survivor class within the group, players must plan their strategy while leaning on their character's strengths in order to defeat monsters and avoid starvation. For example, the Fireman is deadly up close with his ax; meanwhile the stealthy Hunter is great at scouting the map and avoiding traps — but roaming monsters are gathering quickly and time is running out. Can you survive the apocalypse?

Maximum Apocalypse: Kaiju Rising (Max. Apocalypse Expansion)

$15.00 SRP

When monolithic beasts rose from the oceans, our military tried to stop them. As we killed them at great expense and destruction, more kept rising from the depths. Our world is theirs now. They roam the landscape as an ever-present threat while the last of us scrounge on what's left from our crumbled civilization. Maximum Apocalypse: Kaiju Rising adds two new survivor characters, the Army Ranger and Scientist. Each character comes with their own unique survivor deck of abilities and equipment cards. The Scientist is clever and adaptable whereas the Army Ranger is an excellent sniper and crowd control character. Finally, this expansion adds a new apocalypse deck of 30 cards with new missions and challenges as you face the largest monsters seen thus far.
