PreOrder Open for AEG’s Cutthroat Kingdoms

THE THRONE TO THE KINGDOM OF AURUM LIES UNCLAIMED. Cutthroat Kingdoms is now available for Preorder from AEG.

As memory of the slain king Ratimir Dravanof passes, the six great houses vie for control of the land in a neverending dispute of title, territory and birthright.

Now, embroiled in conflict, the lords and ladies lock eyes on the crown, as they fight to contend with the remnants of the Dravanof legacy: the great plague that has now turned upon the people, to ravage the countryside, exacting its cruel revenge.

This is the innovative new social game of contract, duplicity, arranged marriages and tainted food. Every group will create their own rules for how to play and every game will be different. Will yours be high on subterfuge, backstabbing and betrayal, or conducted on a higher plane of rock-solid agreements and unbreakable oaths?

Fantasy Flight Announces Blood Bound, a New Social Deduction Game

Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce Blood Bound, a social game of deduction, bluffing, and vampire clans for six to twelve players!

For centuries, you and your kind have ruled the darkness, feeding wherever you chose and turning more and more humans to join your clans. But conflict became inevitable as the clans grew in number and broadened their territories, creating an atmosphere of festering mistrust and betrayal. The ensuing war destroyed countless immortals, and the clan leaders were forced into hiding. There are only remnants left, but the war is not over. You will not rest until you’ve destroyed your enemies forever.

In every game of Blood Bound, you and a few of your fellow players become a clan of vampires, working together to deduce the identity of your rival clan leader and capture him. Your adversaries—the other players—won’t be idle, however. They’re simultaneously working to identify and eliminate your clan’s leader. You must make your attacks carefully, but hunting in the dark is never as easy as it appears. In fact, you may not know your friends from your foes until it’s far too late.

WizKids announces Burkes Gambit

September 8th, 2016

WizKids is pleased to announce the upcoming release of Burke’s Gambit. Designed by Rob Yates, Burke’s Gambit is a game of bluffing and social deduction, and will release in stores this December.

Players will be speeding through space on Burke’s Gambit, a rugged company freighter on an extremely important mission. Your crew has been tasked with finding powerful alien technology, but what you find instead is something unexpected… a dangerous parasitic organism somehow made its way into the ship and inside the body of one of your crew members.

Join the crew of Burke’s Gambit on a wild space adventure with hidden affiliations and a hidden (even to themselves!) infected player. Split into two teams and take on the roles of Captain, Marine, Comms Officer and more in an effort to discover each crew member’s hidden agenda and who has been infected.

Let paranoia run rampant in this thriller, great for large groups of 4-8 players! Using only your dice and your wits, you must discover the truth before enough engine power-ups are rolled and the ship reaches Earth, where a vote must be made. Choose the wrong player to be spaced and your team (or even the entire planet) will lose!
