Ascension: Skulls & Sails


 

 

 

 

 

The Age of Sail has come to New Vigil. The tropical lands that surround the Valley of the Ancients are up for grabs, with gold enough to make yourself king, but also the legendary Crystals of Command: an artifact rumored to give the wearer power to control the land, the seas, and the skies.

In Ascension: Skulls and Sails, players familiar with Ascension will continue to recruit powerful heroes and constructs and defeat monsters as they vie to collect the most honor. However, in addition to using runes and power to control the game, players will use a new resource, crew, to move their ship around the board map. Cast off around the board to gain an advantage over your opponents…or to challenge, Thukal, The Kraken!

And what pirate adventure would be complete without raiding and treasure? Players can use the new Raid ability to capture valuable treasure cards from their opponents.

Take command of your ship and join the adventure. Find gold and glory on the Severed Seas!

Ringmaster: Welcome to the Big Top


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In Ringmaster: Welcome to the Big Top, you compete to build the best carnival and earn the title “Ringmaster”! The only way to reach this illustrious title is to hire stars and build attractions…while occasionally sabotaging the other players and adding devious sideshows to your opponents’ carnivals!

The game is fast and family-friendly. Each player starts with three cards, and on your turn, you draw one card from the deck, then you may play one card, following these rules:

  • Stars & Attractions are played in front of you.
  • Event cards trigger effects when played to the discard pile.
  • Sideshow cards are played in front of your opponents.

Now, here’s where things get tricky. Each player’s win condition changes throughout the game. For example, the “Three Ring Circus” card states that you win the game when you have three of them in front of you. Be careful, though, as your opponents can sabotage your best efforts, preventing you from becoming the “Ringmaster”!

Dust in the Wings


 

 

 

 

 

After a long hike through the woods, you finally find the perfect place to set up your camera — a lush meadow. A green sea of grass rolls gently in the wind, spotted with flowers opening up to morning dew and gentle sunlight, and flocks of butterflies hovering above in a slow, deliberate dance. Light flickers in the golden dust, as you take the first look through your lens and get ready to capture the most beautiful of sights in your photo!

Dust in the Wings is a family game of perception, planning, and picturing the beauty of nature. Built on the wisdom of Mancala — a beloved game known for thousands of years — Dust in the Wings creates an experience that is light on rules, engaging in its gameplay, and wondrous to the eye!

At the beginning of the game, Butterflies are placed on each flower in the Meadow, a 5×5 grid on the main game board. During each turn, a player attempts to fulfill the requirements of various objectives in order to score victory points.

The board is manipulated Mancala style. The active player will choose a single Meadow space and pick up all Butterflies from that space. One by one, these Butterflies are dispersed. The first Butterfly is placed onto any one Meadow space adjacent to the space which the Butterflies were picked up from. The next Butterfly is placed onto any one Meadow space adjacent to that space, and so on.

The goal is to place the last Butterfly onto a Meadow space so that the space fulfills the requirement of a Gathering objective or Composition objective.

A Gathering objective is fulfilled by gathering a precise number and types of Butterflies onto a single space in the Meadow.

A Composition objective is fulfilled by having a group of spaces that collectively contain a number of Butterflies indicated on the cards. The group of spaces must also match a distinct shape and size depicted on the card.

Even if you managed to fulfill the requirements of multiple cards, only one card may be scored each turn.

At the end of the game, a player’s score is calculated. Each Composition card is worth a number of points as indicated on the card. The values of various Scoring markers, which were collected when completing Gathering objectives, are also added to the final tally.

The player with the most points is the winner!

Heroclix: Black Panther and the Illuminati


 

 

 

 

 

The Illuminati originated as the world’s most powerful think-tank, operating in secret and representing the interests of all superhuman communities. They have collaborated and dealt with many threats to the world, including alien wars, cosmic forces, and some of the most powerful weapons in the universe. Eventually the Illuminati found themselves in possession of the Infinity Gems and split them up among themselves for safekeeping.
