New Arrivals 9/7/2016

By Alexander "Dice Pilferer" Smith

Thief's Market is a game for 3-5 players by local game designer and creator of Get Bit!, Dave Chalker. Roll the dice to see what valuables are up for grabs and become the most infamous thief by cleverly claiming loot, hiring goons, and gaining notoriety. Stealing treasure from your friends has never been so fun!

Junk Art is a stacking game for 2-6 players. Each round, players will choose one of the cards offered to them by their neighbor and add the corresponding piece to their pile. There are 10 game modes, so if you are looking for a different play experience, there are many ways to play.

The Dragon' & Flagon is a hectic fantasy bar brawl for 2-8 rowdy adventurers. Flip tables, cast spells and take a swig of the magical elixir to become even more powerful in this free-for-all tavern tussle.

America is a trivia party game for 2-6 players by Friedmann Friese where players must guess the year and location of famous events and people from American history. Show off your knowledge or pick up new interesting tidbits in this fun party game.

The Pursuit of Happiness is a game for 1-4 players where you get jobs, buy items, and raise a family. If you've been looking for a way to transition your family from Life to other games, The Pursuit of Happiness might be the ticket.

The Big Book of Madness is a game for 2-5 players where you play as young witches and wizards who must fight monsters and reseal them in an enchanted book. Players work together as they add cards to their decks to learn and cast spells and fight the monsters that emerge from the pages.

Dead of Winter: The Long Night is the standalone expansion to Dead of Winter. 2-5 players must work together and guide survivors to accomplish both group and personal goals. This edition has different optional rules that you can add to the game for a different play experience.

J'Accuse! is a game where 3-6 players have all worked together to murder someone, but only one will be arrested. Foist evidence onto your opponents to draw away the suspicion of the inspector...if it's enough to convict them, you're off the hook!

Flag Dash is a fast board game version of the classic "Capture the Flag" played by 2-4 players. Secretly plan out moves and use special powers to get to your opponent's flag while guarding your own. This game might be small, but it has a lot of strategy to it and I'm sure you'll be seeing a lot of it on your table.

Jukem Soccer and Jukem Football are both two player card games where players take turns dealing cards and making offensive plays while the opponent tries to hinder your progress. Seemingly simple, these games are quick to play and victory is dependent on your ability to read your opponent.

Logic Labyrinth is a puzzle card game for 2-4 players in which you must match up the pathways on the cards dealt to you. The faster you're able to complete the path, the more treasure you'll get. We've played this a few times at the store, and we've been having a lot of fun frantically trying use all the cards.

Pizza Party is a straightforward two player dice rolling game where you mush match the faces of your dice with the toppings on the pizza card. Quickly assessing what toppings you have and what toppings you still need to roll is key in this game. Collect the most slices of pizza to win!

The Heroes of Kaskaria is a game for 2-4 young heroes looking to reclaim the magic amulet from the wicked trolls. Players will lay down action cards to advance their pieces by land and air towards the troll lair and rescue stolen treasure. The player with the most treasure wins!

Dragon Rapid Fire and the Fire Crystals is a simple roll and move where 2-4 young dragons try to collect the most crystals as they fly down the path. Similar to Unicorn Glitterluck, this game introduces whirlwinds that change what paths become available. A great first game for young ones.

Smart Car 5x5 is the updated version of the Smart Car puzzle game for kids. This version adds a 5th piece to use in solving puzzles and cuts out the often confusing challenge of aligning eyes on the pieces of the car. This is a great way to build puzzle solving skills in young players.

Magic Feathers is a matching game for 2-5 young players. Players guide a feather to face down tiles, trying to make a match. This game is great for developing memory as well as coordination.

Young Centurions is a FATE Accelerated roleplaying setting based on Spirit of the Century. Dive into the adventure of the 1910s by discovering ancient artifacts, stopping mad scientists, or solving neighborhood mysteries. This book makes roleplaying fun and easy.

Tome of Beasts is a supplemental monster compendium for Dungeons & Dragons 5th edition and is published by Kobold Press. Add dangerous and exotic monsters to your sessions and spice up your campaigns. These monsters really give a DM a wide variety of options and challenges, and I'm eager to try some of them out in my campaigns.

The ritual has been completed and now the 7th edition of the Call of Cthulhu roleplaying game has been unleashed. Investigate the unknowable horrors that lie beyond the realm of human comprehension. With your friends. And this book. And the chanting...oh, the chanting...

We've gotten a slew of cool new stuff for the Pokémon trading card game! We now have the Generations Elite Trainer Box, the Mythical Pokémon Collection - Victini, and the Red & Blue Collection: Pikachu EX sets. I can't stress how amazing everyone here thinks the art on the new Pikachu EX card is, but you'd expect nothing less of the iconic Pokémon mascot.

New demos: Thief's Market, Logic Labyrinth, Young Centurions, Guilty as Charged, Dead of Winter: The Long Night
