Omens of the Pharaoh Coming to Elder Sign

Dec 31, 2017

Fantasy Flight Games has opened preorders for the newest Elder Sign Expansion, Omens of the Pharaoh.

You listen carefully, huddled behind some shipping containers in a dark alley. Whatever else the thing following you may be, it isn’t stealthy. You can hear it slithering along the broken pavement, dragging itself along the dusty streets. Whatever creature drove you from the ruins at Dashur seems to have followed you to Cairo. At least there were so many people around that you wouldn’t be alone in facing this grotesquery for long. You freeze as the familiar scraping comes to you from the mouth of the alley, and you hear the monstrosity pause for a moment before it continues past your hiding spot. You’ve scarcely caught a breath before you hear the sound of footsteps coming from the direction the creature had gone. Relieved, you step out from behind the crates… and freeze. Whatever is walking toward you is doing a very good job of pretending to be human, except for the face. Human mouths simply cannot stretch that way. As you turn to run, the slithering sound reaches your ears again, accompanied by what you can only assume is the creature’s perverse excuse for laughter.

An expedition into the lands surrounding Dashur has unearthed that which should have remained forever entombed in Omens of the Pharaoh, an expansion for the cooperative dice game Elder Sign. An ancient evil named Nephren-Ka, also known as the Dark Pharaoh, is straining against the bonds that cast him from our world, and it’s up to a few stalwart investigators to stop this terrible presence from returning to Egypt.

Downforce Hits the Danger Circuit!

Restoration Games announced plans to publish an expansion for Downforce, their critically acclaimed game of high stakes F1 racing, titled Danger Circuit.

The expansion, entitled “Danger Circuit” includes a full-size, six-fold, double-sided board and six new player powers. It features new cover art by returning artist Tavis Coburn, who is also doing the art for the tracks this time around. The “Switchback Pass” track includes “dangerous spaces”, which can only be used to pass other cars. “Crosstown Speedway” presents players with split tracks and crossover “loops”, where trailing cars can block cars in the lead.

Powers include “Defensive”, which lets players move their cars when they wouldn’t move at all, and “Ambitious”, which lets players advance their cars when the cross a betting line.

“From the moment it released, Downforce has been an absolute hit for us. The number one thing the fans kept shouting at us was: ‘More tracks, more powers!’ We heard you,” said Justin D. Jacobson, president of Restoration Games.

Restoration Games has not announced an official street date for the expansion, but plans are to release it in the summer of 2018 at an MSRP of $19.95.

T.I.M.E. To Get Tubular

Dec 6, 2017

Estrella Drive is now available for T.I.M.E. Stories from Asmodee.

In Hollywood, the ghosts of the past never sleep! Embark on your next adventure into the past with Estrella Drive, the sixth expansion for T.I.M.E Stories. Like all T.I.M.E Stories adventures, you and your fellow players are members of the T.I.M.E Agency, sent to investigate a disruption to the Time Stream. This time, you and your fellow agents are sent to 1982 to investigate a temporal anomaly in a supposedly haunted Hollywood mansion. Please note that Estrella Drive is recommended for mature audiences—certain themes within this adventure may be objectionable to younger players.

Welcome back, agents. Don’t mind the confetti, I’m just getting you in the spirit for your next mission. Take your seats, time is valuable, and you could be embarking on your next mission as early as today—the mission we’ve codenamed Estrella Drive.

You’ve been briefed on the destination of this mission—1980’s Hollywood—and also your objective. Prepare for everything that comes with this setting: partying, loose morals, and other… “adult” content. Once again, agents, I cannot stress this enough—Estrella Drive is meant for mature audiences only. Those not of age should stay back at HQ.

The objective of your mission is to simply observe the temporal loop located in this time period. We aren’t looking to close this loop, merely gain knowledge from it. We’re certain that this mission in particular will prove to be key in studying the complex behaviors Time exhibits.

Through our briefings, we at the agency have worked hard to familiarize you with some of the far out (did I use that right?) receptacles that you can choose to inhabit during your mission. Each of the different receptacles has a particular skill set that might aid you in their own unique way. You’ll need to work together with your fellow agents to choose which characters to inhabit… and you might meet some new ones along the way!

You’re returning to a time of neon colors, shady characters, and confetti—which I still can’t seem to get out of my clothes no matter how hard I try—and I wish you the best of luck, agents. But please remember: you’re not there to alter or tamper with the temporal loop, only to observe. I cannot stress this enough.

Sands of Dorne Expansion for Game of Thrones TCG Announced

Dec 1, 2017

Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce Sands of Dorne, the fifth deluxe expansion for A Game of Thrones: The Card Game!

House Martell has waited long for vengeance. Seventeen years have passed since the death of Elia Martell at the hands of Ser Gregor Clegane and the invading Lannisters during Robert’s bloody rebellion. Over those long years, their hatred has festered and grown in the shadows. The Martells have been unable to quench their thirst for justice until now… and only blood can sate their appetites.

Sands of Dorne is a deluxe expansion for A Game of Thrones: The Card Game, bringing House Martell squarely into the sunlight and giving them the cards they need to go toe-to-toe with any other faction in the game. Here, you’ll find powerful new versions of House Martell’s most iconic and dangerous characters, all intent on bloody revenge, including Doran Martell, The Red Viper, Ellaria Sand, Quentyn Martell, Nymeria Sand, and Areo Hotah.

The power of House Martell is rising in the south, but far from the deserts of Dorne, the other Great Houses are also setting their plots into motion. Every other faction in the game receives two new non-loyal cards in this deluxe expansion—and when that’s combined with a brand-new agenda and an assortment of neutral plots, Sands of Dorne promises to shake up the game like few other expansions can.
