It was an ambush. That’s the only way to describe it. The mother ship appeared out of nowhere, creating a massive shadow over the city. Within seconds, wave after wave of fighters poured out of it, filling the sky.

We’re launching the ships we have ready, but it isn’t much. Our pilots fight bravely, defending the planet, while we ready the rest of the fleet. Explosions fill the sky, and we’ve taken some hits, but we won’t give up. Will you?

Flip Ships is a cooperative dexterity game for 1-4 players being published by Renegade Game Studios where players take on the roles of brave pilots defending their planet from an onslaught of firepower. Flip your ships to take out the encroaching enemies, and to take down the powerful mother ship before it’s too late.

Being an all powerful God in ancient Greece comes with some pretty sweet perks. It can even go to your head a bit, looking down on those silly humans making sacrifices and offerings just to appease you. However, sometimes faith can be fleeting. Zeus has become unhappy with the level of dedication being displayed by the mortals lately. He’s made an order for a show of power that will restore the awe and belief that he’s become accustomed to. By his decree, players will rain down monstrous creatures from on high to remind people who’s in charge of the world. Time to introduce a little bit of chaos!

Rain down monsters from atop Mt. Olympus to prove your power!

In Monstrous, players take on the role of Greek gods who have decided to show a display of their power to the mortals on Earth. By throwing famous mythical Monsters onto the city states of Greece, players will do battle with each other, control different locations, and earn the Faith of the humans. Monstrous is one of the most strategic dexterity games ever designed. You’ll have to consider which Monster to throw and where you want them to end up… and once you’ve made those decisions, you still have to stick the landing. It’s an all out war for the hearts and minds of the Greeks. Only the god who has shown their mental and physical prowess will earn the Faith of the people and win the game!

Pirates of the 7 Seas available from IDW Games

IDW Games have released their newest game, Pirates of the 7 Seas and you can pick it up now at your local FLGS or online.

The design team behind Mysterium invite you to enter into unknown waters with Pirates of the 7 Seas!

Take a turn for the topsy-turvy, where the top of this very tin serves as the board, your dice are your ships and where they land on the board means as much as what you roll! Choose to remain an independent vagabond, or maybe cut a deal with a Governor to become all official-like in your pirating ways. Consult with a Shaman to curse the other pirates or pay a visit to the Cartographer to find a map with some hidden treasure.

The Pirate with the most booty will win, but a Pirate’s life isn’t always on the up and up. Savvy?

The game may seem straightforward: be a pirate, get the booty, have the most to win. It’s is also dexterity-based, as where you roll the dice on the board matter as much as what the dice say. Those dice represent your pirate ships! So just rolling well won’t win you the game. You’ve also got to have a good eye and skill to get them right where you need them.
