Lando’s Millennium Falcon Comes to X-Wing 2nd Edition

June 16, 2018

Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce the Lando’s Millennium Falcon Expansion Pack for X-Wing Second Edition! This expansion pack will join the rest of Wave I for X-Wing Second Edition, releasing on September 13th, 2018!

Long before Han Solo owned the Millennium Falcon and made his own brand of special modifications to the ship, it belonged to infamous gambler and smuggler Lando Calrissian. With the recent release of Solo: A Star Wars Story, we finally got to witness some of the Millennium Falcon’s early exploits and see how it inevitably came into Han Solo’s possession. Soon, you’ll have the opportunity to experience this classic ship in an all-new way during your games of X-Wing™ Second Edition.

No Honor Among Thieves Card Game Announced by Carpe Omnis Games

June 15, 2018

No Honor Among Thieves from Carpe Omnis Games is a competitive/cooperative card game for three to six players, in which each player assembles a crew of thieves and sets out to see who can steal the most lucre from the rich and powerful of a fantasy city. Working alone is difficult, but working together leaves you open to treachery by your so-called allies–or gives you the chance to betray them, and take it all for yourself. An unspoken code of honor exists among the thieves of this city, but that won’t last past the first betrayal, and once that uneasy trust is gone the game gets more dangerous as players gain access to additional underhanded abilities.

The rich and powerful of the kingdom keep their wealth safe behind barred doors and armed guards, but you know a guy who’s good with locks and another who’s good with his fists. Or you know someone who can climb like a monkey, and someone else who could charm the fangs off a snake. How you do it is up to you. The important thing is that there’s gold there for the taking, and you’re going to take it all.

Assemble your crew. Make your plans. And make sure to keep a careful eye on everyone else, because everyone knows there’s no such thing as honor among thieves.

Hidden Panda Comes to Kickstarter from Jellybean Games

June 12, 2018

The world’s cutest social deduction game has arrived on Kickstarter, with Jellybean Games launching the campaign for Hidden Panda, a hidden roles game for 5-8 players of all ages.

“I love social deduction games, but they always have such dark themes.”
said the designer, Peter C. Hayward. “Dystopian governments, witch hunts,
the criminal underworld… I wanted to make a game that you could play with
your kids, or anyone who enjoys a more upbeat theme. There’s no
werewolves or murder in this game; it’s about collecting baby pandas, and
Grandma handing out tea.”

From the designer of Dracula’s Feast and The Lady and the Tiger, ?with stunning art provided by Kelly Jo (Scuttle!, Ninjitsu), the bright colors and light-hearted theme breathe fresh air into the typically-gloomy genre.

“We told Kelly we wanted to break records in cute. As soon as she got to
work, we knew we’d made the right choice. My favorite piece of art in the
game is the ‘5 baby pandas’ token, which shows them lolling about in a
panda cuddle puddle. It’s impossible not to fall in love with it.”

As with all Jellybean Games, the rules are straightforward and easy to learn. Everyone is randomly given a role: If you’re a Panda, Keeper, or Grandma, you’re on the Panda Team. If you’re a Bandit, you’re on the Bandit Team. Only some players on the Panda team know who’s on their team, while each Bandit only knows their own role. Grandma plays face-up for the entire game; her role is to try to get baby pandas to her fellow teammates without giving their roles away. This unique addition to social deduction makes it perfect for family play – the Grandma role can be given to an adult to help guide younger players.

On their turn, each player hands out 3 baby pandas to other players. Then, they give one other player a piece of bamboo. When a player has 3 pieces of bamboo in front of them, everyone votes
on whether or not they should be netted. Netted players have their baby pandas taken away. If all the Pandas are ever netted, the Bandit team immediately wins. Otherwise, once everyone has
taken two turns, the team with the most baby pandas wins!

The game contains 8 role cards, 45 baby panda tokens, 16 bamboo tokens, 6 net tokens, and 1 cup of tea token. Kickstarter backers will get a free, exclusive set of wooden baby panda tokens.

A free print-and-play version of the game is available on the publisher’s website, jellybean.games
