May 16th, 2017

 

In the Cities in Ruin expansion for Eldritch Horror, Shudde M’ell, the progenitor of the dreaded chthonians, tosses and turns with the cycle of its dreams. Mankind’s fragile existence is threatened as this otherwordly being comes closer to waking than ever before. Cities fall and storms rage all over the globe as Shudde M’ell thrashes beneath the planet’s surface. Can a few brave investigators scattered across the globe truly hope to stand between this horrifying monstrosity and the utter devastation that heralds its coming?

There had been so many signs. Why had none of them listened? You had tried to warn them that the prison of G’harne was failing in Africa. The media, the police, even the revered professors at Miskatonic University, all of them had treated you like some raving lunatic and thrown you out into the street. Even now, with acrid smoke and the stink of death thick in the air, no one actually looked back at the coiled horrors writhing amongst the city’s ruins. None of them wanted to believe that this level of devastation could be visited upon the world by forces so poorly understood by the minds of man.

Someone must face these horrors and try to drive them back. Someone has to try to keep Shudde M’ell from waking. No one had listened, and now you grimly march into the ruins of the city you tried to save, determined to find some clue to sealing away the ancient creature once and for all.

Disturbances in the Force: New Villain and Ally Packs Coming for Imperial Assault

swi47-49_box_spread

May 10th, 2017

Three powerful Force users… and not a single Jedi among them.

Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce the upcoming release of two new Villain Packs and one new Ally Pack for Imperial Assault!

  • Maul Villain Pack
  • Emperor Palpatine Villain Pack
  • Ahsoka Tano Ally Pack

In the city where the Jedi Council once sat high enough above ground level to soak up the sun’s fading light, there are no more Jedi. The galaxy’s former self-appointed guardians have been swept aside by Order 66, and Emperor Palpatine has established an order of Inquisitors to hunt down and destroy any who still remain. Even those who simply demonstrated a sensitivity to the Force were at risk of being targeted, and many were captured and sent to a secret installation on planet Arkanis as part of Project Harvester.

As a result, the Jedi have all but ceased to exist, and they have faded even in the minds of the galaxy’s citizens, many of whom now view the Force as some “hokey religion.” But there are still some who can feel the Force and draw upon its strength. Some still seek to use its power to defend themselves and those around them. Others choose to wield the Force like a weapon that they can direct at their enemies. And when there are rumors leading toward an artifact that may enhance these individuals’ abilities to use the Force, you’ll find three of the most powerful of them ready to chase after those leads among the streets of Coruscant.

Together, these Ally and Villain Packs introduce three highly detailed figures for Maul, Emperor Palpatine, and Ahsoka Tano that you can use to replace their tokens in your Heart of the Empire campaign. Plus, they introduce brand-new missions for your campaign games and skirmishes, plus all the Deployment cards, Command cards, and Agenda cards you need to explore new Force-centered tactics in every mode of play.

Guarding The Realm Available for Game of Thrones TCG

May 10th, 2017

Guarding the Realm, the second Chapter Pack in the Blood and Gold cycle for A Game of Thrones: The Card Game, is now available from Fantasy Flight Games!

Like the other packs of this cycle, Guarding the Realm follow the events of A Storm of Swords, bringing key characters like Melisandre and Wex Pyke of House Botley to the foreground. If you’re going to protect the realm, there’s always a price to pay… and with new economical options and the bestow keyword, it’s up to you whether you’ll pay in blood or in gold.

As the Great Houses of Westeros scheme and plot their enemies’ demise, the last scion of House Targaryen slowly travels west across the continent of Essos. Daenerys’s path leads her towards the Iron Throne and King’s Landing, but many obstacles remain before her—starting with the garish, opulent cities of Slaver’s Bay. Astapor, Yunkai, Meereen: these are cities that have stood since the days of Old Valyria, growing fat off their foul trade in human lives. But everything is about to change for the Ghiscari, and lead your faction on a new path with Guarding the Realm.

Coruscant, capital of the galaxy. This globe-spanning metropolis is the home of Emperor Palpatine and countless other beings. It is also the home of countless mysteries, including the location of an ancient artifact of incredible importance…

Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce the upcoming release of Heart of the Empire, a new expansion for Imperial Assault!

Adventure among the awesome Coruscant cityscape, and face its myriad dangers. Only the bravest rebels dare to operate here, but when it becomes vital to locate an ancient artifact before the Emperor can claim it as his own, you’ll set forth on a new, highly replayable campaign of sixteen missions that explore every level of the world, from its glistening halls of power to its grimy underworld alleys.

You’ll find three new heroes ready to join the Rebellion, aided by the talented Force user Ahsoka Tano. You’ll maneuver through the crowded city, pursued and confronted by Imperials at every turn. And you’ll find the Emperor isn’t the only major player working against you. The former Sith, Maul, has sent a Clawdite Shapeshifter to pursue the artifact, and any face in the crowd might hide the Shapeshifter’s true identity.

Altogether, Heart of the Empire expands your campaign and skirmish games with three heroes and thirteen other figures, including the massive AT-DP, baton-wielding Riot Troopers, and twin-gunned Sentry Droids. Coruscant comes to life with dozens of new map tiles and more than 130 cards. New energy shield and rubble tokens will throw a wrench in your opponent’s plans by modifying the battlefield, and new power tokens give you more control over your fate than ever before!

Inspired largely by the characters and events of Rogue One, Rise of the Empire introduces a plethora of new heroes, villains, starships, troopers, and vehicles from that film, alongside other characters, ships, and events from Star Wars: Rebels and the classic trilogy, plus new missions that add more drama and intrigue to your games.

Altogether, Rise of the Empire enhances your games with eight new leaders, thirty-six plastic miniatures, five target markers, two attachment rings, three new dice, and more than one-hundred new cards. You’ll find U-wings, TIE Strikers, Nebulon-B frigates, and the Interdictor.

May 6th, 2017

Ben Rosset and Matthew O’Malley, designers of the competitive tile-laying/drafting game Between Two Cities, have spent the last few years working on an expansion; Between Two Cities: Capitals, coming this July from Stonemaier Games!

You will be blown away by how just a few streamlined elements added so many interesting decisions (the expansion requires the core game):

  • Landscape mats (7 total) give each city a unique layout to build on and around.
  • Districts give players a majority bonus for connecting specific types of tiles.
  • Civic buildings (21 total) are a new type of building tile. Each unique civic building wants to be adjacent to 2 specific tile types (and not 1 specific tile type).

The expansion also includes 7 pairs of wooden city tokens that were previously only available as promos or in international editions.

Dead of Winter: Warring Colonies Expansion Coming Soon!

May 3rd, 2017

We were suspicious when they arrived across town and set up camp, but we tried to live in peace. No more. They’ve taken too much from us. Too much that we can’t get back. It’s time for revenge. It’s time for war.

Coming soon from Plaid Hat Games, team up and battle your friends in the new expansion, Dead of Winter: Warring Colonies!

This expansion, designed by Colby Dauch and Timothy Meyer, is the ultimate experience for Dead of Winter, the quintessential post-apocalyptic game by Isaac Vega and Jon Gilmour.

Warring Colonies comes with a mountain of content, much of which supports the new team variant for 4-11 players, in which two colonies compete over the same locations for limited resources and power.

Dead of Winter Warring Colonies requires a Dead of Winter base set to play, and requires both Dead of Winter: A Crossroads Game and Dead of Winter: The Long Night to play the warring colonies variant and the lone wolf module.
