New Arrivals 10/28/2016

By Alexander "Totally Bogus" Smith

Colony is a dice-based development game for 1-4 players. Players must roll dice and use the resources provided by the different faces to construct buildings and score points. The dice as a resource mechanic is pretty cool and the fact that only some of the resources can be carried over adds interesting choices for players.

Star Trek: Ascendancy is an exploration and civilization development game for 3 players looking to boldly go where no gamer has gone before. As you travel the universe, you will discover new locations where you will have to overcome obstacles and gather resources. Because the board grows as you play, no two games will be the same. This game is packed with fifty years of Star Trek history, making it perfect for any Trekkie.

Bill & Ted's Excellent Boardgame is a card game for 2-4 most-righteous players. Travel through time grabbing famous people from history to score points on your History final. Definitely a great game for those who loved the movies, but also a fun way to spark interest in history. Wyld Stallions rule!

Safe Breaker is a 3-6 player logic and deduction game where your objective is to correctly guess the color-number combination of each opponent. Start by asking others if they have at least one part of a certain color-number combination, and when you've narrowed down the options you can try to eliminate them with a correct guess. If you like games like Hanabi, but want something a bit more competitive, Safe Breaker is for you.

Stockpile: Continuing Corruption is the expansion pack to perhaps the only stockmarket game Kathleen actually likes. This expansion brings four new additions: forecast dice, bonds, new investors, and commodities & taxes. If you enjoyed playing with the alternate rules included in the base game, the extra variants included in this expansion will be a real treat.

Star Wars X-Wing: Heroes of the Resistance is the new set of Rebel ships for Star Wars X-Wing. Bring the fight to the Empire with the the Millennium Falcon and Poe Dameron's T-70 X-Wing as well as new pilots and upgrades!

We have a TON of new Pokémon products in this week! For big boxes, we have the new Pokémon Mega Gyarados Collection, Dragonite EX Box, and Mega Beedrill EX Premium Series. If you're looking for something smaller, we have the sets of three booster packs that come with pins featuring Zoroark, Mega Alakazam, and Mega Swampert.

New demos: Mystic Vale: Vale of Magic, Betrayal at House on the Hill: Widow's Walk, Odd Man Out, Stratego, Dicey Goblins, Potion Explosion
