Wave VI Announced for Star Wars Armada

swm26-27_titleimage

March 14th, 2017

When the battles of Star Wars™: Armada start getting heated, shields begin to fail, and hulls creak and groan under the strain of repeated battering. It’s at times like these that a fleet admiral’s cunning may prove the difference between victory and a resounding defeat…

Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce the sixth wave of Armada expansions!

Light on ships, but heavy on new ideas, Armada Wave VI features two expansions—the Imperial Light Carrier Expansion Pack and the Hammerhead Corvettes Expansion Pack. Inspired by Star Wars Rebels and Rogue One, the expansions give us three new ships—one Quasar Fire-class cruiser-carrier and two Hammerhead corvettes. While these are solid ships, they are by no means the biggest and baddest battleships you’ll find in the Star Wars galaxy, but if you overlook the threats they pose? You do so at your peril.

Plaid Hat Games have been very busy lately developing new, deluxe expansions for Ashes, their fantasy card game.

They have announced that there will be two new sets coming out soon. They also give some info about a new organized play kit and a bit of the future of the game.

Well hello, everyone!

I know, I know, I KNOW it has been forever! Sorry to everyone that has been upset about the silence. Believe me, we didn’t want to keep quiet this long, but in order to get things figured out we had to keep details internal for a while.

We have been working with our new parent company – Asmodee – to bring you some new amazing stuff in the Ashes line. The transition has been going great! They have been so awesome and helpful throughout this shift. Everything that we have been doing is really helping to make Plaid Hat Games better, and we couldn’t be happier!

Fan: Enough of the Plaid Hat Asmodee romance… where are my cards!?

Ok, ok! Without further ado, here is what we can announce at this time:

These two Deluxe Expansion Sets are slated for release in late spring / early summer. They’ve also given a look at the new Dice and awesome Storage Boxes for your Ashes sets!

IDW Games have announced one radical playable hero add-on, the first expansion for the massively successful TMNT: Shadows of the Past Board game!

April O’Neil, gutsy and independent ally of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, is getting a premiere hero pack upgrade from Kevin Wilson, the same creator of the critical hit, TMNT: Shadows of the Past board game.

Fans can continue the plot of the original base game, TMNT: Shadows of the Past, with the April O’Neil Hero Pack, which includes an all-new adventure comic featuring four new battle scenarios not available in any previous TMNT box set.

The expansion includes April’s action dice, which features a double shuriken and two chi faces, making her a shredded powerhouse long-range fighter. Additionally, the pack includes 7 action cards such as First-Aid, which allows her to heal the Turtles, the boot-shaking Gravity Gauntlet, that both inflicts damage to opponents and knocks them back, and the Stealth Suit, which makes her incredibly hard to hit in combat.

Also available in this expansion pack, is a new April O’Neil figure sculpt with a completely different look. With her hood up and gravity gauntlet raised, April is ready to stand up and fight alongside Leonardo, Raphael, Donatello, and Michelangelo.

In total, the TMNT: Shadows of the Past Board game expansion: April O’Neil Hero Pack upgrade includes the plastic figure, three Action Dice, seven Action Cards, a Hero Sheet featuring new art from Tony Vargas, and the Adventure Comic with 4 new Battle scenarios. Please note that this pack requires the base game to play.

March 5th, 2017

The case has remained unsolved for months. Despite their best efforts, the police are no closer to capturing the shadowy monster terrorizing the Whitechapel district. Letters from the unseen killer taunt the them each time he claims a new victim and disappears into the night, narrowly escaping their clutches. But the police are vigilant. They continue to patrol Whitechapel, hoping to pick up the trail…  

The tense cat-and-mouse action of hunting down Jack the Ripper—or evading the police as Jack himself—returns with Dear Boss, the thrilling expansion for Letters from Whitechapel, available at retailers now!

Dear Boss returns you to the streets of London and the hunt for the enigmatic serial killer known as Jack the Ripper. As the monster continues to prowl Whitechapel, baffling the police and putting residents on edge, Dear Boss gives you new tools to face this terrible threat. Additionally, this new expansion draws you deeper into the historical circumstances surrounding the Ripper killings of 1888 with even more variants than those found in the base game. Alongside the twelve beautifully-sculpted plastic miniatures that replace the Policeman, Jack, and Wretched tokens from the base game, Dear Boss provides the definitive Letters from Whitechapel experience.

February 28th, 2017

Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce Cities in Ruin, a new expansion for Eldritch Horror!

You feel it just below the surface. Something gnawing at the edge of sanity, a feeling that the steady march of machines and concrete that have come to be recognized as progress in the modern world is transient. Your visions show you a desolate future, where all that remains is dust, ash, and those who have long slumbered.

Violent earthquakes contort cities to unrecognizable ruin, unrelenting typhoons eradicate coastlines, and deep below the Earth something ancient stirs. Shudde M’ell, The Cataclysm from Below, approaches with destruction and ruin as his heralds.

Cities in Ruin sees four new investigators face the brink of madness to battle Ancient Ones, and introduces a slew of new monster and encounter cards to the world of Eldritch Horror. And what’s more, new Ancient One Shudde M’ell’s presence brings a destructive twist to the game in the form of the Disaster deck.
