Carcassone goes Under the Big Top In A New Expansion!

July 25, 2017

It’s the Greatest Show On Earth! Z-Man Games has released the 10th expansion for Carcassonne, Under the Big Top, where the focus is on scoring points through interactions with adjacent tiles.

Included in Under the Big Top ($20 retail) are 40 new tiles, animal tokens, ringmaster meeples, and a wood big-top piece. Circus tiles give points both to the meeples on them and to those on adjacent tiles. Acrobat tiles score multiple meeples, with new ones stacked in a pyramid when tiles are placed adjacent. And ringmaster meeples are placed as normal but score bonus points for adjacent circus and acrobat tiles.

The tent has been pitched outside of town and the performers are ready to thrill the crowd with their death-defying stunts. A new world of excitement awaits in Under the Big Top, the tenth expansion for award-winning tile-laying game Carcassonne. Capturing the thrill of the circus, this expansion incorporates twenty new Land tiles and two new follower types into the Carcassonne library. Players can use them to attract people from all over the countryside to view their menagerie of animals or witness their feats of death-defying skill. Just like the daring risks that circus performers take, Under the Big Top gives players plenty of opportunities to score big points—if they can draw in the crowds!

Shudde M’ell Shakes the World. Meet this unstoppable challenge by traversing the globe to attempt to halt the rise of Shudde M’ell, the Cataclysm from Below, in Cities in Ruin, the newest expansion for Eldritch Horror, available now! Can the investigators stem the tide of destruction that heralds the coming of the Ancient One?

Cities across the globe are reeling from the effects of Shudde M’ell struggling in his prison beneath the Heart of Africa. The seals that had trapped him beneath the ancient city of G’harne are weakening. The earth’s crust cracks and heaves, and the very fabric of reality warps and splits. As we’ve shown in our two previews, cities that were once safe havens can now be wiped entirely off the map by disasters that arise amid Shudde M’ell’s dreams. Even though this devastation is a serious setback, unique challenges await amidst the ruins that could yield great insight and valuable assets for your investigators.

As the great cthonion creature stirs, the investigators must meet this incredible threat with new strategies. Gain an array of advantages by arming your desperate team with a folio of Agency Secrets,  or attack the creatures head-on by unleashing some powerful arcane forces of your own with the Wave of Destruction task.

Both of these Unique Assets are new to this expansion, and are just a sampling of some of the new Asset, Condition, and Spell cards you’ll find in Cities in Ruin. Take advantage of every last scrap of resources that you can gather, for the Cataclysm from Below is waking, and the investigators must race to stop him.

The Wars to Come Expansion for The Iron Throne Board Game Available Now

July 11, 2017

The Wars to Come expansion for The Iron Throne board game is now available at retailers from Fantasy Flight Games.

With its two new Houses and twenty-five game-changing allies, The Wars to Come brings more players, more intrigues, and more betrayals to your battles for the Seven Kingdoms.

Based on HBO’s award-winning Game of Thrones television series, The Iron Throne challenges you to outwit and outmaneuver your rivals. You send your leaders to meet each other on the field of battle, you make alliances with other Houses, and you break those alliances. In the end, there’s only one thing that matters—your place atop the Iron Throne.

Now, with the addition of House Greyjoy and House Martell, The Wars to Come allows you to enjoy these contests with as many as seven players. But it’s not just the size of the game that changes; you’ll find that these Houses also permit more scheming, more uses for your hostages, more aggression, more trickery, and more of all the carefully constructed chaos that makes both the game and the HBO series so fantastically absorbing.

Allies of Necessity Come to Star Wars TCG

July 10, 2017

Allies of Necessity, the first Force Pack in the Alliances cycle for Star Wars: The Card Game, is now available from Fantasy Flight Games

Chief among the new cards it introduces are its ten new affiliation cards. And just as was the case after the Death Star first unleashed its superlaser upon Jedha City, the galaxy will never again be the same. These affiliation cards don’t just encourage the exploration of new deck archetypes; they reward your exploration with immeasurable power.

While the Force Pack’s eight new objective sets (two copies each of four different sets) each suggest different ways you might explore alliances between your side’s affiliations, these affiliation cards actually mandate those alliances. Then they offer you extra card draw, extra resources, or extra actions.

The Unspeakable Oath Mythos Pack Announced for Arkham Horror TCG

July 6, 2017

Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce the upcoming release of The Unspeakable Oath, the second Mythos Pack in The Path to Carcosa cycle for Arkham Horror: The Card Game!

It was always going to come to this… You’re finally headed to the asylum.

Something about the mysterious play, The King in Yellow, had nagged at the corners of your mind before it arrived in Arkham, and you began investigating. You learned madness and disaster followed the play everywhere it went. And still you dug deeper.

You attended the performance. You came face to face with terrors that still haunt you. And then—having barely survived your earlier encounters, and hanging onto the remnants of your tattered sanity—you went to the Arkham Historical Society in search of even more information.

Now, as you look to carry forward through The Path to Carcosa campaign, you may find yourself wracked by Doubtand surrounded by Lunatics. And, still, you’ll catch hints of deeper and darker secrets.

With the new scenario coming in The Unspeakable OathArkham Horror: The Card Game continues and deepens its exploration of the mystical realms between the traditional role playing and card game experiences. You’re not wandering the streets of Arkham, nor the wooded New England hillsides. Instead, you’re wandering the hallways of an eerily quiet asylum—perhaps punctuated, at times, by mournful howls or manic laughter—and need to gain passage through several locked doors.

June 29, 2017

Lumen Fidei is the fifth expansion for T.I.M.E Stories, inviting you and your friends to travel back to Medieval Spain near the end of the Reconquista. Lumen Fidei is now available at your local United States retailer.

Travel back to 1419 and Reconquista Spain in Lumen Fidei, the fifth adventure for T.I.M.E Stories!

Spain is still divided by religious conflict between the Christians and the Moors, but in the midst of this conflict, a supernatural power is rising, tied to an unnatural stone. Your mission is to travel back to Spain, recover the stone, and return it safely to the T.I.M.E Agency. Enemy agents have been sighted in the time stream as well, so you’ll need all your wits about you as you travel back to medieval Spain!

Welcome, agents. We don’t have much time. After all, you could be embarking on your next mission as early as today—the mission we’ve designated Lumen Fidei.

No one here at the T.I.M.E Agency can predict exactly what you’re going to find, but we’ve done our best to acquaint you with what we currently know in our advance briefings.

Of course, you know the destination of your mission—medieval Spain near the end of the decades-long Reconquista—and your objective. An anomalous stone, rumored to have unexplainable powers, has been discovered in this era. Your mission is to travel into the past and retrieve this stone, bringing it back for safe keeping within the walls of the T.I.M.E Agency.
