New Arrivals 12/10/2016

by Alexander "TWO Black Holes" Smith

Starfall is a light bidding game for 2-4 players where your goal is to discover astronomical bodies and claim them before your opponents can. Depending on what is visible in the night sky, your strategy might change. For example, a black hole might be negative points if you only have one, but a second might actually tip the value in your favor.

Sola Fide: The Reformation is a two player card game about Martin Luther and the schism in the Catholic church started in 1517. Created by Jason Matthews, a D.C. area local and co-designer of the critically acclaimed Twilight Struggle, this game is surprisingly informative with cards that represent people and events influential during this period in history.

Don't Mess With Cthulhu is a social deduction game for 4-6 players. Unfortunately, nobody listens to the title in this game, because messing with Cthulhu is what this game is all about. Some players will be investigators while others are cultists trying to summon the dreaded creature and it's your job to discretely figure out who is on your side and who is not.

Nautilion is a 1-2 player dice game that follows in the footsteps of other Oniverse games such as Castellion and Sylvion. In this game you must sail in your submarine to gather crewmates that will grant you special powers while keeping ahead of the phantom submarine that will whittle away your options. The game also includes several expansions that expand the game with extra crewmates, powers, and challenges.

Citadels isn't a new game, but it is certainly one of my personal favorites. Recently released is the new edition of the game that totally revamps this classic 2-8 player drafting game. With new characters, buildings, and artwork, this version feels like a brand new game. Whether you fell in love with the original or wanted to see what all the excitement was about, now is a perfect time to experience this gem of a game.

Scythe: Invaders From Afar is the expansion to the hit of the season, Scythe. With this, you can add two extra players to your game up to a total of seven. We've had a lot of people express interest in this expansion for some time now. Apparently the only thing better than having five people protect farmers with giant mechs is having seven people protect farmers with giant mechs.

Martial Law is the name of the newest datapack for the Android: Netrunner Living Card Game. With new cards for each faction, this pack with augment your decks and allow for new and interesting interactions in the high-tech future of cybercrime.
