Z-Man Games Announces Smile the Card Game

May 22nd, 2017

Z-Man Games is pleased to announce Smile, a card game for three to five players about rounding up the critters worth the most points. Armed with firefly-filled jars, you and your rivals spread out in search of the lost critters, each hoping to lure as many as you can. But be careful not to lure any wild critters by mistake! They look very similar to your tamed ones, but capturing them gives you negative points. Your goal is to be surrounded by a collection of cute little smiling creatures no matter what—just make sure to get the right ones!
Dusk is falling and your critters have escaped their enclosure! You only have a few hours to rescue as many as you can before they cause all sorts of mischief. Fortunately, critters will do anything for a big juicy lightning bug. It’s time to fill your jars with fireflies and head into the forest.
Smile is a game of making bold bids and crafting devious plots to claim the critters worth the most points. With the critters out of their enclosure, you have a golden opportunity to round up the best ones for yourself. But keeping them out of the other players’ hands won’t be easy. Choose when to make your move and when to hold back if you want to claim the cutest critters as your own.

During each of the game’s ten rounds, critter cards equal to the number of players are revealed from the deck. Players then compete to lure the available critters by offering up fireflies. On their turn, each player can choose to either stay in the round or bow out and collect a card with at least one firefly on it. To stay in the round—and remaining in the hunt for the most valuable critters—you must place a single firefly on the creature with the lowest value. As a result, dropping out of the round means settling for fewer points while gaining all the fireflies on the card you take.

Your machete won’t help you. Nor will your shotgun. Exploding dynamite won’t even make a dent…

Undimensioned and Unseen, the fourth Mythos Pack in The Dunwich Legacy for Arkham Horror: The Card Game, is now available at retailers—and it has unleashed a brood of horrifying abominations upon the countryside that must be destroyed.

Not only must these abominations be annihilated, but it has fallen to you to do so. The citizens of Dunwich will offer you little aid; they are too deep in their panic. They can think of no better response to the unseen creatures that can smash houses as though they were made of paper than to run screaming, praying for safety. The question is: Can you do any better?

FFG Announce Crimson Dust, the Final Data Pack for Red Sand Cycle in Android: Netrunner

Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce the upcoming release of Crimson Dust, the final data pack in the Red Sand cycle for Android: Netrunner!

Corporations and Runners. Colonists and Clans. The Martian Colonial Authority and The Free Mars Movement—there are a lot of intersecting interests on Mars, and even more that conflict with each other.

And then there’s the Crimson Dust. The Crimson Dust teaches that human life originated on Mars before colonizing Earth. Its members believe that their leader, Vasanti Smith, is the reincarnation of one of the first settlers on Mars. They believe in Martian independence, and they believe in augmenting human bodies with g-mods and cybernetics that allow them to endure the Red Planet’s atmosphere. They also believe that would-be martyrs armed with Taejo monofilament wire bombs can sneak past the security in most nodes and inflict tremendous amounts of damage on their protective domes.

Unfortunately, they’re right about that last one.

The first five data packs in the Red Sand cycle explored the forces that are vying for control of Mars, what they hope to gain from the Red Planet, and how far they’ll go to get it. The sixty new cards (three copies each of twenty different cards) in Crimson Dust look at the consequences of this enduring conflict, which has taken lives, destroyed homes, and left an entire world vulnerable to extremists.

Grunt Games Announces Lewt Ninja

May 15th, 2017

Grunt Games has announced their new card game, Lewt Ninja, releasing in the fall of 2017.

If you have played any Massively multiplayer online role-playing games (MMORPGs) like World of Warcraft, Rifts, or Star Wars the Old Republic then you have more than likely created many characters and adventured across the virtual lands of these fantasy universes. During visit to these fantasy worlds you have more than likely have ventured into one of the many dungeons in search of powerful weapons and artifacts for your character. In the early days of these games there were some players who went into these dungeons with the purpose of gathering up all of the loot for themselves even if they couldn’t use the items. The community dubbed these players as ninjas. While the creators of these worlds have since placed new mechanics and features into the looting systems of their games and decreased the hardships of players from losing out on acquiring the sought after items for their characters; a new game company is looking at the past to inspire a new card game for gamers to play.

Grunt Games LLC is the recent startup game development company by Dewayne Cameron and is based out of Grovetown Georgia. A retired U.S. Army veteran and most recently a game designer who worked developing learning games and simulators for the U.S. military. . Founded in July of 2016 Grunt Games is has been developing a table top card game which is to launch in the Fall of 2017. Lewt Ninja the title of the game was inspired by Massively multiplayer online role-playing games (MMORPGs) looting system and the sub-cultural references to players who are known for taking items and gear from other players. In the game of Lewt Ninja 2 to 5 players can play as one of the five hero characters classes that come with the game. Each of the classes has special abilities that will help defend against or steal loot away from the other members of your group.

boxfront-1Players will use three different decks; the Monster, Loot, and Player decks. Players draw monster cards to determine how much loot will be dropped for players to roll on. Monsters have also have special abilities that can affect how each round can be played by either changing how loot is decided or to what cards can be played or not played during the round.

Once a monster has been revealed players will then reveal the loot dropped by the monster. Players try to win and collect all 8 pieces of their hero’s armor in order to win the game. At the same time they will try to deny the other members of their group from gaining their armor pieces. Even if a player doesn’t get all of their armor they still have a chance to win the game by winning all of the loot they possibly can.

To win loot players will lay down roll cards that have numeric values, the player with the highest value wins the loot. But winning the roll doesn’t mean you have won the round. Players can then play special cards that will allow them to steal or even block another player from stealing loot.

In addition to the normal game play Lewt ninja has two other game modes; Legendary and Vote to kick. In legendary mode players will need to collect their characters hero eight piece armor set as well as their hero’s weapon. In Vote to kick mode players are booted from the game when they lose three pieces of their characters 8 piece armor set to other players. Lewt Ninja is a standalone game that includes 189 cards …everything that 2-5 players need for endless hours of treasure stealing, back stabbing fun!

 

Archmage Origins Launched and Funded on Kickstarter – 17 Days Left to back!

May 14th, 2017

SolarFlare Games has returned to Kickstarter to seek funding for their new game, Archmage Origins.

Archmage Origins is a light, fast and fun game for 2-4 players.  The game is a unique blend of tableau management, bidding, bluffing, area control and memory.

Quick to play, easy to learn and challenging to master; Archmage Origins is a great deal at just $9 (delivered) on Kickstarter.

 

Archmage Origins is a game where players take turns manipulating the field of monsters and focusing their mystical power to “enlist” monsters to form the strongest force possible.

The goal is to control the strongest force of monsters from the Realm, which is made up of cards indicating the monster that occupies that space and its power level.

Players take turns peeking at the cards to determine where the most powerful monsters are hiding, deviously moving the monsters around, and strategically placing their Mage Cards around the borders of the Realm. Once all the Mage Cards are in place, players compare the power value of the magical energies that intersects at each monster. The player with the higher total mystical power value gains control of that monster (usually). The player who collects the most powerful force of monsters wins.
