XCOM: The Board Game is pretty much what it says on the box. XCOM is a board game rendition of the tactical alien defense video game that uses a free app for your smartphone, tablet or computer to keep track of incoming ships or progress on research. We don't normally stock items that require electronic components, but this mechanic fits perfectly with the theme and experience.

[redacted] is a game of intrigue and spycraft for 2-6 players where you are trying to find secret papers and then get away in a helicopter. When you meet other agents, you'll have to choose whether to cooperate or attack them and steal their intel and gadgets. This came in JUST IN TIME for our big spy-tacular game day at the Goethe Institut. Join us there for What do you spy? and try out this game.

Age of War is a quick conquest game set in feudal Japan and made by famous designer Reiner Knizia. At the beginning of the game, fourteen cards are laid out and you must roll dice to capture them, pressing on until an entire line is captured. If you can capture each of a clan's castles, they can't be captured again and you'll earn bonus points in this game of dice and daimyos. 

Here's one that folks have been waiting for. In Deus, players take turns constructing buildings on a modular board, laying down cards and making offerings to the gods. When you lay down a card, you activate its special ability along with the abilities of all previous cards you've played of that color. Deus is certainly a great game that only gets better with each card.
