August 20, 2017

The time has come! Fantasy Realms, designed by Bruce Glassco, is now available in North American game stores!

As a ruler of a far-away land, each player must create the best card combos by drawing and discarding cards to build the mightiest realm in the world. You might choose to build up a massive force with army cards to sweep all before you.  Or perhaps your kingdom will thrive in the mountains using caverns for shelter or jungles for protection with land card combos. The choice is yours, for no two realms will ever be the same.

Quick to learn and quick to play, this game is designed for 3-6 players. Each player chooses to draw from the deck or discard pile to create the best hand possible. You can only have 7 cards so choose wisely as the game ends when there are 10 cards in the discard area. Aim for the highest score to win the game and become the ruler of the realm.

Purchase your copy at your friendly local game store today for $19.99!

WizKids Announces Approaching Dawn: The Witching Hour

WitchingHour-MockPackagingFRONT

August 10, 2017

WizKids is pleased to announce the upcoming release Approaching Dawn: The Witching Hour, designed by Ken Shannon for 3 – 6 players.  In a world where Witches cast spells and Demons exist in the darkness, will you be able to banish the evil?

In this cooperative new board game, players are members of a coven who are blood bound – what one witch does affects another member of the coven. Work together to use your magic to bind and banish the demons, imps, fey, possessed animals, and warlocks that are entering the world.

Each witch starts with different abilities and their own spell deck, but not all spells are cast the same. Each card can be played as Black Magic or White Magic. Black Magic is powerful and can help you but will corrupt the other members of your coven. White Magic can be used to heal your own corruption or assist your allies.

Throughout the game, witches can gain corruption to learn new spells, get familiars, and collect artifacts. How they choose to use these new cards each Hour will determine the success of each scene (mission).

In Approaching Dawn: The Witching Hour each scene determines the goal of the game. If the scenes are played in order, they form a story arc, but players can play any scene in any order.

Approaching Dawn: The Witching Hour will be available as an early release at Gen Con and will be available in stores in September.

Pre-order Approaching Dawn: The Witching Hour from your Friendly Local Games Store for $59.99 today!

August 9, 2017

WizKids is pleased to announce Sidereal Confluence: Trading and Negotiation in the Elysian Quadrant, designed by TauCeti Deichmann, is now available in North American game stores.

In Sidereal Confluence: Trading and Negotiation in the Elysian Quadrant, 4 – 9 players will need to competitively scheme and create mutually beneficial agreements to keep their economies thriving.  Each player must choose one of the nine unique and asymmetrical alien races that have come together to form a trade federation in their quadrant. Over the course of the game, each race must trade and negotiate with the rest to acquire the resources necessary to fund their economy and allow it to produce goods for the next turn. As no race has the ability to thrive on its own, Sidereal Confluence has a uniquely cooperative feel and with almost all simultaneous action, the game play is always moving.

The ultimate goal in Sidereal Confluence: Trading and Negotiation in the Elysian Quadrant is to gain victory points, which are acquired by researching technologies, using your economy to convert resources to goods, and converting your leftover goods into points at the end of the game.

Order Sidereal Confluence: Trading and Negotiation in the Elysian Quadrant from your Friendly Local Games Store or online for $64.99 today!

WizKids Announces Dungeon Hustle

DungeonHustle-FrontMock (1)

August 7, 2017

WizKids is pleased to announce the upcoming release Dungeon Hustle, a dungeon crawling adventure designed by Ben Eisner and Tim Eisner.

In Dungeon Hustle, 2-4 players are sent on a quest to rid the dungeon of monsters and keep them from escaping into the outside world! Players will take on the roles of classic fantasy characters, including a Fighter, a Rogue, a Cleric and a Mage. Move through the dungeon to pick up cards and equip yourself with Potions, Scrolls, Swords, Keys and Shields. Each item comes in different colors. To pick them up, you will need to hustle through a path of dungeon tiles of a matching color. When you step on a different color, the hustle ends and you get to pick up the tiles you had stepped on.

Use the items you collect to fight off monsters, complete quests, and earn gold. The gold you have gained can be used to increase your character level for more special abilities!

At the end of the game, players earn points for their character level, gold earned, items collected and quests completed. The player with the most points wins, but don’t forget to hustle; if too many monsters escape, the game ends and all players lose!

Dungeon Hustle will be available as an early release at Gen Con and will be available in stores later this August.

Pre-order Dungeon Hustle from your Friendly Local Games Store for $24.99 today!
