New Arrivals 4/14/2015 to 4/27/2015

by Alexander "Ankylosaurus" Smith

The long-awaited Dominion: Adventures is here! This expansion spices up Dominion with more kingdoms, events, duration cards and reserve cards. Instead of just discarding your cards as you use them, why not keep them on your tavern mat for a continuous effect or to use on a future turn? You can even power those cards up as you go, leading to new and exciting interactions and tough new decisions. Gear up with Dominion: Adventures!

Ascension: Dawn of Champions is the latest installment to the popular, ever-expanding deckbuilding game, Ascension. This standalone expansion works well on its own, but is also great as an addition to previous sets. Add faction champions as well as multifaction monsters and constructs to change up your game!

Playing Juxtabo is simple enough. All you have to do is stack chips by matching the top color of a stack with one of the colors on a chip and placing it down so the colors touch. If you can match the color pattern on your cards, you'll get points! Once you start playing though, you'll find that the ever-shifting colors in this game for 1-4 players can be quite challenging to keep up with.

Three Little Piggies is a fun, new puzzle game that is great for preschoolers. Using only three pieces, you'll have to place fields, houses and piggies onto the board. Once you've got the hang of it, try night mode where you'll have to get the piggies into their houses and away from the wolf. Use your logic skills to keep your piggies safe!

In Spin-a-Slice Pizza Matching Game, you'll be slinging slices of pizza into a wooden crust and trying to build the perfect pie before your opponent can! With simple spinner mechanics to add, lose or steal slices for your pie, this game is easy to jump in and play. 

Super Tooth is a dinosaur card game where you'll try to collect sets of herbivores and avoid predators. Easy to learn and fun to play, this is a game that is sure to make you roar!

Have you ever wanted to make your own puzzles? With Mindware's Make Your Own Puzzle, you can! Making your own puzzle is as simple as taking a photograph, mounting it on a foam board, and punching it out using pre-made jigsaw pieces! Make sharing photos with your friends even more fun with this cool puzzle maker.

Back in stock this week is the 2014 Spiel des Jahres winner, Camel Up, and an at least temporary return of the super thematic and popular, winter zombie survival game, Dead of Winter. We've had a lot of people asking when we'd get these game back in, and now we have!
