The players of Star Trek Panic boldly go where no Castle Panic player has gone! This light strategy cooperative game lets 1-6 players defend the U.S.S. Enterprise from Tholians, Romulan Birds-of-Prey, and other space threats. Take on the role of your favorite crewman and work together in this great Star Trek themed classic.

13 Days: The Cuban Missile Crisis is a two player strategy game where players play opposing sides in a high tension nuclear war scenario. If you've always wanted to play Twilight Struggle but never had enough time for a full game, 13 Days: The Cuban Missile Crisis is a great alternative.

If you haven't already played Kill Doctor Lucky, the release of this special anniversary edition is the perfect chance! We haven't had this game in such a long time, but now that it's being printed again, we're really excited to jump right back into this 3-7 player secretive murder game. 

Neuroshima Hex 3.0 is an amazing chess-like, tile-based war game. Your hexagonal tiles will be stronger and weaker on different sides, leading to interesting strategic choices. This futuristic battle can be fought by 2-4 players or even played with a solo variant that introduces special challenges for one player.

Top That! is a fun stacking race where players must stack the pieces such that the grayed out pieces are hidden beneath the others. We tried out this game recently when a representative from the game's publishing company, Blue Orange, stopped by the store, and we really enjoyed this 2-4 player kids game.

Dominion: Empires is the new expansion for Donald X. Vaccarino's Dominion. One of the new mechanics that we've found particularly intriguing are cards that incur debt. You can purchase a card that might grant benefits greater than the gold it takes to purchase, but you'll have to pay an extra cost before you can buy more cards. With new landmarks and events, this expansion is great with the base game and brilliant with other expansions.

Imperial Settlers: 3 is a Magic Number really makes the number three something to think about; whenever you build the third building of a particular color in Imperial Settlers, you'll receive a bonus that changes each time the condition is met. The expansion also includes cards for multiplayer and solo games, so definitely a good choice for fans of the game.

The newest datapack for Android: Netrunner is here! Fear the Masses is the final addition to the Mumbad Cycle and contains a plethora of exciting new cards for the game's Corporations and Runners. I'm personally very excited about the new aggressively costed agendas and The Black File card which I'm sure will be a helpful tool for Runners looking to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat.
