WizKids Announces ‘Who Should We Eat’ Survival Board Game

Who-Should-we-Eat1

Dec 10, 2017

Wizkids is excited to announce their newest survival game, Who Should We Eat?, is now available in North American game stores. A lighthearted game designed by Mike Harrison-Wood and Chris MacLennan, you are one of 4 – 10 survivors of a plane crash who resort to cannibalism way too fast! Stranded on a desert Island, you and the others must gather food, find material for a raft to escape, and hold onto your sanity all while fighting ghosts and hunger.

Players play cards to gather resources for the group – adding food, sanity, and wood for the raft. Unfortunately, food is scarce and people are edible. Trials will be held to choose the survivor to sacrifice his or her life – or sometimes a knife fight will determine the person being eaten. For the survivors, this means a loss of sanity, but it also means their raft need not be as large!

However, those that are eaten are not gone forever. They return as a ghost, looking to exact revenge upon the remaining survivors. If the sanity meter fills up too much, then the ghost wins and the survivors are doomed to spend eternity on the island.

Do you have what it takes to get back to civilization? Or will you be voted “most edible” among the group? The stakes are high as the food gets low, so use all your survival skills to build a raft to freedom and hope the ghosts don’t drive you insane.

Dec 4, 2017

Fallout is a post-nuclear adventure board game for one to four players. Based on the hit video game series by Bethesda Softworks, each Fallout scenario is inspired by a familiar story from the franchise. Survivors begin the game on the edge of an unexplored landscape, uncertain of what awaits them in this unfamiliar world. With just one objective to guide them from the very beginning, each player must explore the hidden map, fight ferocious enemies, and build the skills of their survivor as they attempt to complete challenging quests and balance feuding factions within the game.

As they advance their survivors’ stories, players will come across new quests and individual targets, leading them to gain influence. Who comes out ahead will depend on how keenly and aggressively each player ventures through the game, however if a single faction is pushed to power too quickly, the wasteland will be taken for their own, and the survivors conquered along with it.

Dales RV Comes to The Walking Dead: All Out War

March 26th, 2017

Mantic are pleased to unveil Dale’s RV – a new laser-cut MDF kit that’s the perfect size for games of All Out War.

The RV was one of the new product suggestions received from the community, so it’s great to see it come to life. It’s available to order from your local game store or you can pre-order from the Mantic website.

Along with the 3D Scenery Booster, Dale’s RV will be a great addition to your gaming boards and will really help to add a touch of realism. Unlike the Scenery Booster, however, this kit is made from laser-cut MDF so some assembly will be required. But there are clear instructions included with the kit and we’ll be producing an assembly video to offer some guidance too.

Although there are other RVs on the market, this is the only official Walking Dead-themed kit that’s the perfect size for the game (in fact it’s the same size as the cardboard template included with the Days Gone Bye expansion) and is identical to the version that appears in the comics.

Dale’s RV is available to pre-order now is due for release later this month.

Spaceman Adventure board game on Kickstarter

December 19th, 2016

Spaceman Adventure is a strategy board game for 3 or more players looking for funding on Kickstarter.

The bizarre alien planet of Tronoe-17 has just been discovered to be rich in valuable power crystals. Both the Galaxia Federation and Solari Alliance have sent expeditions to the surface to collect these rare treasures. However, the planet is inhabited by the Slimezoids, a mysterious alien race. Do you have what it takes to reap the rewards in this thrilling space adventure?

The game is based on what is called a “bimatrix game” where rewards are displayed in a table and one player chooses the row while the other player chooses the column. But this game has a whole lot of twists to it. Firstly, players have an opportunity to change the rewards in the game. Secondly, players get to choose from multiple characters who all earn points in different ways. Your strategy must depend on what you know your opponents are doing, what you think they will do, what you think they think you will do, and so on…

Munchkin Wonderland announced

Munchkin Deluxe Box

November 14th, 2016

A new Munchkin-inspired game due out this fall will let families with young kids explore Wonderland in a game that plays like a friendlier, simpler version of classic Munchkin.

In Munchkin Wonderland, players wander a whimsical landscape fighting enemies such as the the Queen of Hearts, the Cheshire Cat, or the Jabberwock. They’ll get help from classic characters such as the Dormouse, March Hare, and Alice herself using weapons like the Vorpal Blade and Six Impossible Things Before Breakfast.

Unlike traditional Munchkin games, when one player fights a monster, other players can help, but they can’t make the fight harder. The game ends when there’s no more treasure, and the winner is whoever’s loot is worth the most!

Munchkin Wonderland is based on Munchkin Treasure Hunt, the first Munchkin game geared toward kids, but Wonderland has 100% more Stolen Tarts, Tweedledee and Tweedledum, and Croquet Mallets.

September 10th, 2016

Kill the King by Petter Schanke Olsen launched a Kickstarter campaign a couple of days ago and is already above their funding goal! Stretch goals ahead! Check it out.

Kill the King is a strategic board game where two players each control an opposing army. One player attacks a castle while the other player try to defend it and prevent the attackers from killing the king. The attackers must hurry because the defenders will soon be reinforced by their own cavalry who hopefully will return to save the day.

You can also play two alternate game modes of Kill the King in addition to the normal mode. The first is a standard battle between the two players armies on the field outside the castle walls. The second is a giga mode of the normal mode where you combine two* game boards. One player defends the combined castle of the two game boards, while two players try to attack the castle from opposing sides, adding multiple fronts to the tactical decisions.

The variety of game modes, army placement and combination of soldiers and leaders results in massive replay ability.
