HEXplore It: The Valley of the Dead King & The Forests of Adrimon

HEXplore It® is a hero building cooperative adventure board game system.

Enter a realm teeming with fantasy creatures, heroes, and villains.

Players select their hero by combining up to three character options: Role, Race, and Trait. Your Role is your hero’s profession while your Race is your heritage and species. Traits are found in our expansion boxes and further augment your hero combinations.

These combinations drive your hero’s strengths, weaknesses, and defines your special abilities. Discover fun synergies and enjoy creating entirely different combinations.

Each game is a sandbox containing hundreds of unique cards. You’ll find new play styles to complete each game, meaning no two games played are ever the same!

We’ve released two volumes in the series, and are working on our third.

Little Town

 

 

 

 

 

 

In Little Town, you lead a team of architects and must dispatch workers to the town, collect resources and money, build buildings, and develop this little town.

In the game, which lasts four rounds, you can acquire resources such as wood, stones, fish, and wheat from the surrounding squares by putting workers on the board, with three workers being placed each round. When you place a worker, you acquire the resources available in all eight surrounding spaces. You can build buildings by using these resources, and you — or any other player — can gain the effect of the building when place a worker next to it; if you place next to a building owned by another, however, you must pay them a coin before you can collect those resources.

Players collect victory points by using the powers of buildings, by constructing buildings, and by achieving goals dealt to them at the beginning of the game. After four rounds, whoever has the most victory points wins.

Arkham Horror LCG: Before the Black Throne

 

 

 

 

 

 

Your investigation into the disappearance of four people from a Sliver Twilight Lodge event has opened a new world of terror that stretches beyond the city of Arkham and places the entire universe at risk. Throughout The Circle Undone cycle, you have chased answers while being hunted by the horrors of Arkham’s evil past. With no clear divide between right and wrong, life and death, sanity and madness, you have been left to question the nature of this world and your place in it. Now, your ultimate fate is at hand and all that remains is to decide whether you will continue the fight or surrender to destiny.

Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce Before the Black Throne, the sixth and final Mythos Pack in The Circle Undone cycle for Arkham Horror: The Card Game.

Kibble Scuffle


 

 

 

 

 

Using the game box as a cat food box to store the food cubes, players take turns placing their cats at bowls and resolving their abilities. For example, the Pounce Cat removes a cat at a bowl. The Greedy Cat eats two food cubes. The Mangy Cat forces another cat to move away from their bowl. Once there are 5 cats at any food bowl, the feeding (scoring) phase begins, followed by a new round.

Kibble Scuffle is a tactical card game of area control to try and get the best food for your feline friends. With cards like the Robo-Vac and Laser Pointer, you can use toys to strategically distract your opponent’s cats.

Once a player reaches 20 points, the player with the most value of food cubes eaten at the end of the feeding phase wins.

Dungeons & Dragons Young Adventurer’s Guides: Warriors & Weapons and Monsters & Creatures

Q Workshop: Polyhedral Dice Sets


 

 

 

 

 

Q WORKSHOP proudly introduces Arcade Dice Set – our tribute to the times when boys and girls on sturdy bikes started delving into dungeons and defeating dragons. This set is an accolade to the decade when it has all began and was fresh as new. There are the same might and magic in this set as in adventures in the worlds of first fantasy RPGs.

We made the unusual set with the unique design, so don’t think that these polyhedrons are only a prank.  It is not a prank, but a useful set for all games, even the most serious. These are very merry dice with the touch of grotesque macabre and when you roll them, you can hear very very quiet first tones of Bach’s Toccata and Fugue in D Minor. Yes, that organ music from horrors!

Dragon is certainly the most epic beast you can defeat, an icon for all fantasy worlds and nearly for all games. The true fan of RPGs must have something connected with the dragons. It’s a matter of honor and tradition! Humankind has been slaying dragons since the beginning of time, and that’s obligation for us all!

Also new, Bloodsucker (Black with Silver) and Wizard (Blue with Orange).

November Vol. 1 (of 3)

November 6, 2019

Publisher: Image Comics

(W) Matt Fraction (A/CA) Elsa Charretier

The lives of three women intersect in a dark criminal underground. As fire and violence tears through their city over the course of a single day and night, they find that their lives are bound together by one man-who seems to be the cause of it all. 

One night. One city. Three women. NOVEMBER: the first in a sequence of three graphic novellas by MATT FRACTION (SEX CRIMINALS, Hawkeye) and ELSA CHARRETIER (Star Wars, Infinite Loop), with colors by MATT HOLLINGSWORTH and exquisitely crafted lettering by cartoonist KURT ANKENY.

It’s nice to see more writing from Matt Fraction hitting the shelves (if you haven’t grabbed the first copy of Jimmy Olsen, go get it)! Charretier’s art looks great and even with minimal details in the solicit, I have a feeling this is one we won’t want to miss.

 

Frogcatchers

Publisher: Gallery 13

(W/A/CA) Jeff Lemire

Experience a surreal descent into one man’s psychosis in this haunting and chilling graphic novel from Jeff Lemire, the New York Times-bestselling author of Roughneck and Sweet Tooth. A man wakes up alone in a strange room with no recollection of who he is or how he got there. The padlocked doors and barren lobby reinforce the strangeness of this place. This is, as he reads from an old-fashioned keychain beside his bed, the Edgewater Hotel. Even worse, something ominous seems to be lurking in one of the rooms. But when he meets a young companion-the only other soul in this vast, enveloping emptiness-his new friend begs him not to unlock the door. There must be something behind it…but what?

I think some of Lemire’s strongest works are the shorter books/series where he does both the writing and the art. Frogcatchers will be Lemire’s second release on Simon & Schuster’s imprint, Gallery 13, with the first being Roughneck. If you’re a fan of Lemire’s creator-owned work and haven’t gotten to that one yet, now’s the time!

(W) Warren Ellis (A/CA) Jason Howard

“A uniquely exciting read.” -IGN

The acclaimed series from WARREN ELLIS and JASON HOWARD-which is currently being adapted for television-returns with a brand-new story of murder and ghosts!

In the remote Russian village of Toska, there’s a dead body by the leg of the Tree that landed eleven years ago. Police sergeant Klara Voranova, still haunted by that day, has no idea how this murder will change everything-nor what awaits her in the Tree’s shadow.

Hey, Trees is back! I know some folks were worried we wouldn’t see more of it after the news that it’s being adapted for TV, but now we know that’s not the case. I feel like this is redundant given my comment on the last book but go catch up in time for this one!

 

Everything #1

Publisher: Dark Horse Comics

(W) Christopher Cantwell, I.N.J. Culbard (A/CA) I.N.J. Culbard

EVERYTHING is a gleaming new mega-department store which arrives to extraordinary thrill-and rapidly escalates to inexplicable mania in the small town of Holland, Michigan.

When random hellish fires and unshakable psychic disturbances start to overtake the community, a few-like depressive out-of-towner Lori and a suspicious local named Rick-begin to suspect EVERYTHING and its catalog-perfect manger, Shirley.

Who-or what-exactly is in charge here . . . and what insidious plans are in store?

From Christopher Cantwell, acclaimed writer of She Could Fly and co-creator of AMC’s Halt and Catch Fire, and celebrated artist I.N.J. Culbard (The New Deadwardians, Brink) comes a new monthly ongoing series. Everything: a truly bizarre story about the most horrifying pursuit of happiness you’ve ever read.

Ahh, that ever-so-popular comic book setting of Holland, Michigan. Home of your favorite American tulip festival. Dark Horse’s “Berger Books,” an imprint curated by legendary editor Karen Berger, has already seen some great books and this looks to be a safe bet, too.

The citizens of Dangerfield, Arizona, are beset by strange goings-on after the “Invasion” that rocked the DC Universe, but only five misfit kids seem to notice them. Can they uncover what’s happening before some sinister force collects them all? Find out in this new miniseries! And in the backup feature with story and art by Jeff Lemire, the Peacemaker is on a top-secret mission from Checkmate and Amanda Waller to find a mysterious weapon before the Russians can.

Yeah yeah, I had to squeeze in one more Lemire-written book in here. I’ve been enjoying this trend of releasing 12-issue “maxi-series” by DC and Marvel and this sounds like some pulpy fun.

Batman Talisman: Super-Villains Edition

 

 

 

 

 

 

Talisman: Batman – Super-Villains Edition allows players to take on the role of Gotham City’s notorious evil-doers, sneaking and fighting their way through Arkham Asylum’s two floors and central tower to be the first to subdue Batman and successfully release its dangerous inmates.

The anti-heroic objective in this take on the classic Talisman fantasy tabletop game focuses on building the health, strength, and cunning of the Caped Crusader’s enemies. The game can be played co-operatively against an AI Batman or competitively against other foes with one player eventually earning the reputation needed to be King or Queen of the criminal underworld. The game board features artwork from DC’s “New 52” era, and the game includes thirteen plastic character figures, more than one hundred encounter cards, six-sided dice, and stat boards to monitor each character.

Dirty Pig

 

 

 

 

 

 

Dirty Pig is an easy-to-learn card game where the goal is to be the first player to dirty all your pigs.  After all, a dirty pig is a happy pig.  Getting your pigs dirty may be easy enough, but KEEPING them dirty is more of a challenge; rain showers and pesky farmers can clean your pig, spoiling the fun.  Seeking shelter in a barn may protect your pigs, but you never know how long your pigs will remain dirty.  If you can keep your pigs dirty (and happy), you win!

Dragoon

 

 

 

 

 

 

You and your fellow dragons have lived peacefully on your island…until now. The invasion of humans has awakened your instincts to dominate and hoard as much gold as you can get your claws on!

Dragoon is an action strategy game with an ever-changing landscape. Village and city tiles populate the map each round using a coordinate system. During your turn, choose between claiming villages and cities that pay you tribute, or destroying them out right for instant gold. Challenge other players in dragon-to-dragon combat before they lay waste to your empire or enter your cave to steal your riches. You’re never out of the game until the last gold coin is snatched up!

When game night strikes with a mixed experience group, Dragoon is quick to learn and get started. Gaming vets and newcomers alike can have fun competing as 2-4 playable dragons.

Harry Potter Hogwarts Battle: Defense Against the Dark Arts

 

 

 

 

 

 

Harry Potter™ Hogwarts™ Battle Defence Against the Dark Arts is a competitive deck-building game for two players, inspired by Harry Potter Hogwarts Battle. In this fast-paced game, players take turns playing cards, taking actions and acquiring new cards to build a more powerful deck as their defensive skills improve. Stun your opponent three times to win!

With the noticeable rise in Dark Arts activity, Headmaster Albus Dumbledore has authorized practical Defence Against the Dark Arts lessons to ensure that students are prepared to defend themselves. Under the supervision of Hogwart’s teachers, students will cast Spells and Hexes, use Items, and gain Allies to stun their opponents and protect themselves from evil forces.

THIS IS A STAND-ALONE GAME. While inspired by Harry Potter Hogwarts Battle, none of the content in this game is designed to be incorporated into that game.

Dicium

 

 

 

 

 

 

Dicium invites you on four very different adventures through a central game mechanism of dice combinations. The “Dicium dice” are at the heart of the game: eleven identical dice. Each side presents two aspects: a number and a color. On your turn, you combine the results of your rolled dice to perform up to two actions. The two aspects on each side of a die offer a large choice of number and color combinations.

While all four games follow the same general rules and last 30-60 minutes, each one is set in a specific universe and offers a distinct playstyle:

1. CRAZY CUP is a competitive racing game for 1 to 4 players, ages 8 and up.
Participate in a frantic race through the Grand Canyon. What devious tricks will you employ to hinder your opponents, and be the first to cross the finish line?

2. DUNGEON is a cooperative adventure game for 1 to 4 players, ages 10 and up.
Explore the dungeon with your companions in search of treasures, but beware of monsters and traps. Will you find the Goblin King’s crown before he returns to the throne?

3. CIVILIZATION is a competitive conquest game for 1 to 4 players, ages 12 and up.
Become the ancient world’s greatest conqueror! Explore the archipelago, establish cities, face your enemies, and build a Wonder to ensure your empire’s place in history.

4. SHOGUN is an asymmetrical confrontation game for 2 or 4 players, ages 12 and up.
Ninja are sneaking into the palace to abduct the Shogun! True to their Bushido code, the samurai must defend him. Which side will you choose?

MIB Men in Black Undercover

 

 

 

 

 

 

Aliens exist! But what will you do with that knowledge?

In Men In Black: Undercover, you play as a member of three different groups with three very different goals.

Lastly, there are the Conspiracy Theorists who are working toward proving the existence of aliens to the world.

Which side will come out on top? That’s where you come in! Join a team and influence the aliens to join your cause, but make sure you aren’t too obvious with your goals. After all, you’ll need to stay undercover to win…

Museum

 

 

 

 

 

 

It’s the turn of the 20th century, the golden age of museums. As interest in and accessibility of museums grew exponentially, many institutions underwent an intense period of expansion on both an intellectual and physical level, searching to grow their collections for profit and science.

You play as a curator of one such museum and it’s your job to build the biggest, most coherent collection that you can in this game of collection and bartering featuring over 300 individual illustrations by Vincent Dutrait and authentic architectural facts. But it’s no simple task!

Each player in Museum has a small collection of relics to get them started, after which, they will have to send explorers around the world to uncover others. These relics each have a value which is either the cost to add them to your museum, or how much they contribute towards adding other relics to your museum. “Spent” Relics are added to your reserve. You can withdraw them from it by exchanging them for an equal amount of items however your opponents also has access to your reserve!

During the game you will be required to assemble different collections. These can be from different categories (war, agriculture, architecture, etc) or periods (Ancient Egypt, Rome, Aztec, etc). Patron cards will give you bonus cards for amassing certain collections. Explorer cards will allow you to hire famous archeologists to confer bonuses to your museum and event cards will provide you with some game changing circumstances that you’ll have to work around, based on historical events!

All these different elements make compiling your collection an interesting and sometimes tricky experience! At the end of the game points are scored based on collections and their value and the player with the most points wins!

Potion Explosion: The 6th Student

 

 

 

 

 

 

The second expansion for the award-winning Potion Explosion, The 6th Student includes a shiny new plastic dispenser and introduces a new game mode to play with 5/6 players! Pick marbles from one dispenser and discard them into the other, but be ready for the sound of the bell! When you change classrooms, the roles of the two dispensers will swap, so plan ahead.

Bugs on Rugs

 

 

 

 

 

 

So many bugs crawling around on beautiful rugs! Ants like to travel in big colonies. Fireflies love the bright rug colors. Spiders are always on the lookout for juicy flies. Nine different bugs in all, and your job is to make sure all of them get what they want!

Players take turns drafting bugs from the Floor into their hand to make different sets; each bug type scores differently at the end of the game. At the end of each round there will be one leftover bug… it crawls onto the Wall, where its unique power activates to change things up! At the end of the game players reveal their bug collections and we see who has made the most valuable hand of creepy crawlers!

Simple rules, short play time, and lots of different ways to create cool scoring combos make this a perfect casual filler for players of all types.

Star Wars Destiny: Spark of Hope Booster Packs

 

 

 

 

 

 

“We are the spark that’ll light the fire that’ll burn the First Order down.”
–Poe Dameron, Star Wars: The Last Jedi

Even in the darkest of times, the spark of hope can be found in the Star Wars galaxy, lit by those who dream of a better life. In the era of the Clone Wars, Jedi like Obi-Wan Kenobi fought against the darkness of the Separatist army. Later, charismatic leaders like Jyn Erso and Luke Skywalker led a tiny band of Rebels against a Galactic Empire, and when the First Order rose to power, the Resistance stood up as the spark of hope that would burn it down.

Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce Spark of Hope, a 160-card set of booster packs for Star Wars™: Destiny!

Spark of Hope continues the themes introduced in Convergence, with an emphasis on subtypes, downgrades, and new plots that change the way you construct your deck! Look for Red villain cards that empty your opponent’s hand, a new set of moves and masteries for Blue heroes, powerful new bounty hunters bringing their skills to Yellow villains, and more!

“It was in the sky. A definite point among the stars had a claim on him and was calling him. In the morning it had been underfoot; afternoon found it rising in the southeast, and now it was roughly south but wheeling toward the west.”
   –H.P. Lovecraft, The Dreams in the Witch House

You thought your mission was simple—discover the fate of four missing persons who disappeared from a charity event hosted by the social elite. But at every turn, you have been forced to face truths more terrible than anything you could imagine. And now, after what you saw at the Unvisited Isle, your faith in humanity is on thin ice. You feel as lost and wayward as one of the spirits that haunt your every moment, whether awake or dreaming. Are you going mad? Is this what the world is now? Or has it always been this way?

Legend of the Five Rings RPG: Courts of Stone Sourcebook & Winter’s Embrace Adventure

 

 

 

 

 

 

From sprawling coastline estates to towering fortresses, Rokugani castles are centers of power for the clans that control them. Beyond acting as military strongholds, these beacons of Imperial culture act as the battlegrounds for clashes of political discourse, where the fate of the empire may be decided by a mere handful of courtiers. Here, nobles spin their intrigues, hiding treachery behind a smile as they plot to destroy their enemies with a well-placed lie, a cunning alliance, or spies, shinobi, and assassins in every shadow. Now, as the world of Rokugan continues to open before you in the Legend of the Five Rings Roleplaying Game, you have the chance to put your wits and diplomacy to the test like never before.

Winter’s Embrace is a perfect companion to the Courts of Stone sourcebook, where games of diplomacy, romance, and intrigue take center stage. This adventure takes you and your fellow samurai to the beautiful grounds of Kyūden Doji, where you are introduced to the hazards of court politics. Here, you are surrounded by the political power players of the Emerald Empire—diplomats, artisans, shugenja, bushi, magistrates, and daimyō fill the lavish halls. Certain samurai have been selected to attend based on their skills and positions, while monks also serve as counselors in difficult matters of state.

Star Wars Legion Miniatures Game: Sabine Wren, Bossk & Downed AT-ST Expansions

 

 

 

 

 

 

Born into the proud warrior culture of Mandalore, Sabine Wren carries the history of her people within the very armor she wears into battle. Fueled by this history, she now lends her skills as both a warrior and an artist to the cause of the Rebellion. Within the Sabine Wren Operative Expansion, you’ll find one finely detailed, easily assembled Sabine Wren miniature wading into battle as well as three command cards that help you unlock her full potential. Alongside these are a unit card fully outlining her abilities, four upgrade cards allowing you to further customize Sabine Wren to fit your battle plans, and all the tokens you need to fully integrate her into your Rebel army.

Skillfully tracking his prey across the galaxy using his natural Trandoshan hunting instincts, Bossk has earned his reputation as one of the most feared bounty hunters in the galaxy. In the employ of the Empire, he’ll go to any lengths to bring down the target that will net him the most money. In the Bossk Operative Expansion, you’ll find an unpainted, customizable Bossk miniature armed to the teeth along with the unit card and upgrade cards that you need to fully outfit him for battle. Additionally, you’ll find Bossk’s three signature command cards, giving you access to even more weapons and tactics exactly when you need them. 

Rather than marching forward and raining mortar shells on the hapless Rebels in its path, the wrecked AT-ST you’ll find in this expansion joins the fabric of the battlefield itself, providing valuable cover for your troops no matter what planet they’re fighting on. In addition to deepening your immersion in the Star Wars galaxy, the six new battle cards in this expansion also invite you to make your crashed AT-ST a focal point of the struggle between the Empire and the Rebellion, adding even more variety to your games of Star Wars: Legion.
