The dude arrives.
North Star Games is excited to introduce its brand new game Dude, now available exclusively at Target and Target.com. The game dude celebrates the versatility of a word that can be a question (dude?), an exclamation (dude!), an objection (DUDE), an expression of wonder (dooode), and many other things.
To play dude, each player has a set of cards that shows the word “dude” in 6 different ways. Everyone sits around the table saying “dude” in these different ways, all at once. You try to match with someone who you think is saying “dude” in the same way you are.
“It’s all about intonation, pronunciation, and body language,” states Dominic Crapuchettes, Founder and Co-President of North Star Games. “Is someone saying ‘dude?’, ‘dewd’, ‘dooode’ or just…‘dude’? dude simply celebrates all the beautiful ways that this amazing word can be said.”
But wait. There’s more….
If saying “dude” was not enough for one game, North Star Games is also simultaneously releasing a second game called more dude. Similar to dude, more dude also consists of saying the word “dude” over and over again, but this time players must say it as a robot, a surfer, or any other number of crazy characters shown on the cards.
dude and more dude are now available exclusively at Target Stores and Target.com for $10.99.

In the depths of the ocean, a submarine’s sonar activates: the enemy is near! All hands rush to battle stations—the radio operator tracks the signal intently while the captain charts an intercept course. Deep beneath the waves, a tense battle of submarine warfare is joined…
Asmodee is proud to announce SONAR, a family version of the award-winning Captain Sonar board game.
Launching exclusively at Target, SONAR puts all the excitement of the original into streamlined gameplay for two to four players.
In every game of SONAR, players split into two teams that command opposing submarines. Players navigate their vessels in an underwater game of cat-and-mouse, trying to locate their opponent while avoiding being spotted themselves. Each has the same goal: destroy the enemy!

The release of Super Munchkin Guest Artist Edition is available exclusively at Target and is part of SJGames Guest Artist Edition line of Munchkin games.
Steve Jackson Games is publishing these limited print run games to celebrate 15 years since the original game’s 2001 release.
The art in a new superhero-themed Munchkin game comes from the pencil of award-winning comics illustrator and writer Art Baltazar. Fans of comics may know Baltazar for his independent work on The Big Amoeba and Patrick the Wolf Boy, and for his work on DC’s Billy Batson and the Magic of Shazam! and Tiny Titans, for which he won a prestigious Eisner Award in 2011.
Players in Super Munchkin Guest Artist Edition are superheroes fighting the expertly drawn Slobbering Alien Horde, Office Supplies Man, The Fandom Menace, or Misunderstood Man. They get help from gear like their Heroic Angst, a Plot Device, or even a Continuity Error.
“Playing this game made me feel like a superhero,” said Steve Jackson Games’ Community Manager Hunter Shelburne. “I can’t actually fly yet, but I’m confident that if I play it a few more times, that will come.”
