New Arrivals 1/1/2017

by Alexander "Spam Programmer" Smith

It's been a busy winter so far, and we have tons of new games here at Labyrinth. Take a look at some of our most recent additions and see if there's something for you. Which games are you most looking forward to playing in the new year?

Phase is a card game for 2-5 players that was originally offered as the mystery game in the AEG Black Box this year. You will have to make clever use of your cards because each card you play is double-sided and can flip to reveal a new champion with distinct abilities. How you make use of your cards and knowing when to flip them will mean the difference between victory and defeat in this strategic game.

Grifters is a hand management game for 2-4 players set in the same world as The Resistance and Coup. Players will play specialist cards from their hands to steal money, complete objectives, and grow your criminal organization. We had a customer ask for this game, and after seeing it played, we saw how cool it was and decided to keep it in stock.

Robo Rally just received a brand new version that improves on the classic. This family robot programming game for 2-6 players is all about selecting cards to program a path for your robot while avoiding traps and enemies. The biggest changes from the 1994 version are that now each player has their own deck and instead of player elimination, robots are given 'spam' cards to shuffle into their deck that will make them move unexpectedly.

221B Baker Street Deluxe Edition is the definitive edition for long time fans and new sleuths alike. With 200 mysteries compared to the original 20, a new colorful board, and metal tokens, this version will be a delight for the 2-6 detectives who bring this game to the table.

Alchemists: King's Golem is a a four-in-one expansion that adds new elements to the base game of Alchemists. With special rules such as busy days, startup funding, the golem project and the royal encyclopedia, this expansion revitalizes the play experience and dramatically changes the game as one might change lead into gold.

New Bedford: Rising Tide is the expansion to the recent and popular whaling boardgame, New Bedford. With more ships, more tiles for the town, and even enough pieces for a fifth player, this is a great way to add a little something extra to this already great game.

The Star Wars X-Wing miniatures game has two new ships, the U-Wing and the TIE Striker. With all the excitement from the new Rogue One movie, these ships will help relive the excitement of the silver screen in your own home as well as provide valuable resources for customizing your squad for battle.

New Demos: Robo Rally, Robinson Crusoe
