Z-Man Games Announces Carcassonne Expansion 9: Hills and Sheep

Sept 2, 2018

Grow your flock, gain the high ground with hills, and cultivate a vineyard in Carcassonne Expansion 9: Hills & Sheep! Pre-order your copy of the ninth expansion for the classic tile-laying game at your local retailer.

Carcassonne Expansion 9: Hills & Sheep will be $17.99 and release in Q4.

The shepherd carefully watches over his flock as they wander through the fields. Over time the flock can grow but be careful; if you wait too long to return your flock to the stable, wolves may attack! After placing a tile with a field, you may choose to place a shepherd and immediately draw a token from the cloth bag. Drawing a sheep token will increase your flock. However, if you draw a wolf token the flock will scatter. Press your luck to grow your flock for additional points.

Get a better view with the hills and gain the advantage from the high ground. Hill tiles are elevated with another tile facedown beneath them. When scoring, the meeple on the hill will break a tie and claim the points. Add thriving vineyards to grow wine around a monastery and increase its value. Watch out for sabotage from your opponents! Only a completed monastery can claim the bonus points from the vineyards.

Aug 18, 2018

Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce A Game of Thrones Catan: Brotherhood of the Watch 5-6 Player Extension, now available for pre-order!

Jeor Mormont continues to seek a successor from among the Brothers of the Night’s Watch. Only one who can improve the failing infrastructure of the Gift and restore the guards who defend the Wall will be able to take the reins and lead the Order through the coming winter. But the struggle for power among the brothers becomes more difficult with each passing day. The forests of the North conceal many mysteries, and the wildlings still have a few tricks up their sleeves. Brutish beasts clamor towards the Wall, and if you wish to uphold your vows to defend the realms of men, you will need to call upon new allies and use every ounce of your cunning to outwit your enemies beyond the Wall and within the Watch.

One year ago, you entered the harsh northern reaches of Westeros with A Game of Thrones Catan: Brotherhood of the Watch.

Combining the classic game play of Catan with new mechanics and immersive elements, players stepped into the roles of brothers of the Night’s Watch, tasked with developing the Gift and recruiting guards to defend the Wall—all with the goal of ultimately becoming the new Lord Commander.

Now, A Game of Thrones Catan: Brotherhood of the Watch 5-6 Player Extension increases the challenge of the competition by allowing you to bring up to two additional players to the fight for power.

The Priority Supplies Battlefield Expansion Is Now Available for Star Wars: Legion

July 16, 2018

Now, you can bring these objectives to vivid life and reshape the very landscape you fight on. The Priority Supplies Battlefield Expansion for Star Wars: Legion is available now from Fantasy Flight Games, encouraging you to bring a new level of Star Wars realism to your battlefields today!

As the desperate struggles of the Galactic Civil War play out across the galaxy, the goals of the Rebel Alliance and the Galactic Empire are rarely as simple as the total destruction of the opposing army. Similarly, whether they take you to the dense forests of Endor, the vast deserts of Tatooine, or the frigid wastes of Hoth, the battles of Star Wars™: Legion see you fighting to accomplish a variety of different objectives.

The Priority Supplies Battlefield Expansion offers several ways to shake up your games of Star Wars: Legion, starting with the way your objectives are represented on the battlefield. Each of your Star Wars: Legion battles tasks you with completing specific objectives in order to gain the tokens you’ll need to claim victory. You might fight to secure transmissions containing vital intelligence, recover lost supplies, or simply attempt to gain control of strategically important positions. Normally, all of these objectives are represented by objective tokens placed across the battlefield.

With the twelve new objective miniatures contained in the Priority Supplies Battlefield Expansion, however, these objective tokens become a part of the landscape of the battleground itself. The three comms stations, four moisture vaporators, and five supply crates you’ll find here deepen your immersion in the Star Wars galaxy by providing a visible representation of your objectives or adding more thematic variety to your terrain.

The battles of the Galactic Civil War take place on many fronts. Put your own personal touch on each one with the miniatures and cards found in the Priority Supplies Battlefield Expansion!

Inspire Rebellion with the Leia Organa Commander Set for Star Wars: Legion

Jan 30, 2018

Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce the Leia Organa Commander Expansion for Star Wars™: Legion!

From Alderaanian diplomat to leader of the Rebel Alliance, Leia Organa’s legacy has been one of inspiration, heroism, self-sacrifice, and leadership. Along with Han Solo and Luke Skywalker, her actions directly led to the ultimate downfall of the Galactic Empire—so it’s only fitting that she takes her place in Star Wars: Legion as the Rebellion’s second commander, battling alongside Luke Skywalker.

Inside the Leia Organa Commander Expansion, you’ll find everything that you need to add Leia Organa to your army as a commander. A single unpainted, easily assembled miniature beautifully represents Leia Organa on the battlefield, while new upgrade cards allow you to customize how she is represented in the game. Finally, a hand of three new command cards lets you add a unique touch to your overarching strategies, bringing some of Leia Organa’s own unique tactics to your games. Releasing alongside the Fleet Troopers Unit Expansion, these two expansions promise new tactics for the Rebellion to employ in their struggles for freedom.

This second installment comes with six standard pre-printed scenarios with all terrain, obstacles and unit positions, but also the historical background and special rules. To help spice up your scenarios, the expansion comes with both a brand new Jungle Combat Cards deck and a Desert Combat Cards deck.

Dokmus And Dokmus: Return of Erefel Expansion Announced by Renegade Game Studios

Jan 15, 2018

Renegade Game Studios have announced the Jan 24, 2018 release of Dokmus and the Dokmus: Return of Erefel Expansion.

Lead your tribe to glory on the island of Dokmus and become a legend! The island is represented by eight double-sided map pieces. During set-up, you randomize which side of each map piece is up and place them in a 3×3 grid so that the middle place is left empty.

The island is guarded by five Guardians, which are represented by Guardian cards. On each turn, players draft the Guardian cards so that each player gets the help of one Guardian. The Guardian cards decide turn order and they also give you special powers. With them, you can move and rotate, move your tokens, or gain first player marker for next turn.

On your turn, you have three tokens to use. You use tokens to spread your influence by placing them on the board. You can also sacrifice tokens to be able to cross waters or enter forests. Or you can just sacrifice them in a volcano. At the end of the game, you get victory points for discovered temples and ruins on the map as well as sacrificed tokens.

Erefel_3D-small

Erefel is one of the original guardians of the island of Dokmus. His task was to help the expeditions to the island in crossing the stormy waters and showing them the way into the dark forests. But he neglected his task, leading to the expeditions suffering. As punishment Erefel was banished from the island. He would not be allowed to return until he was ready to help the expeditions again.

Erefel spent many years trying to find ways to make life easier for the worshippers arriving to the island. After traveling far he found a more advanced culture, which had developed roads that would survive even the harsh conditions of the island of Dokmus. After presenting his findings to Dokmus, Erefel was allowed to return to his position.

 

 

 

AT-ST Unit Expansion for Star Wars: Legion Available to Pre Order

Jan 12, 2018

Across the Star Wars saga, Imperial walkers have formed a key part of the Empire’s ground-based operations. The Imperial assault on Hoth was spearheaded by massive AT-ATs, with lighter, more mobile AT-STs providing flank support. Though All-Terrain Scout Transports (or AT-STs) may lack the sheer firepower and impenetrable armor of an AT-AT, their mobility and ease of deployment makes them a favored option for any Imperial general. Soon, you’ll be able to bring your own AT-STs to your games of Star Wars™: Legion!

Yyou can pre-order your copies of the AT-ST Unit Expansion online today!

In a game of Star Wars: Legion, an AT-ST holds the heavy rank—a rank that’s well suited to the AT-ST’s towering size and intimidating firepower. A standard Star Wars: Legion army can only include two heavy units, and in truth, you would be hard-pressed to include more than two AT-STs among your forces. Coming in at a base cost of 195 points, a single AT-ST takes up almost a quarter of your full allotment of 800 points in a standard game. Between nearly unbreakable armor and an undeniable assortment of firepower, it’s plain to see that an AT-ST can have a game-changing impact on the field of battle. How many AT-STs will you field, and how will you upgrade them?
