What's New at Labyrinth 10/18/2019

Check out our new and newly restocked games!




Vast: The Mysterious Manor


Vast: The Mysterious Manor is a gorgeous, asymmetrical, strategy game in which the character you choose will determine the way you play the game. Each character option in The Mysterious Manor comes with their own unique victory conditions and abilities. For instance, the Paladin is obsessed with destroying the Spider, and the Manor is interested in shifting manor tiles in order to trace specific lines through the manor. The game uses tiles to construct the layout of the manor as the game progresses, creating a unique experience for each playthrough. The game also plays with one to five players, meaning you can enjoy it with others or by yourself in the built-in solo mode. Vast: The Mysterious Manor is compatible with Vast: The Crystal Caverns and Vast: The Fearsome Foes, and it is another gorgeously constructed game from Patrick Leder.



Gaia Project


Touted as a follow-up to Terra Mystica, Gaia Project, while not a new game, just got a copy at Labyrinth. If you are a fan of space conquest and territory control with lots of modular board pieces then you should come grab your copy while it's still here!



Irish Gauge


Having just come out this past September, Irish Gauge is a bidding, route-building, stock holding game in which three to five players build railroads across Ireland while trying to get the most out of their investments. It is now in stock at Labyrinth!



Volcanic Isle


Volcanic Isle is a resource management and push your luck style game in which two to four players strive to earn victory points, while risking the destruction of the island, which ultimately ends the game after a certain point.



Deep Blue


Deep Blue is a press-your-luck and engine-building, family game in which players dive for wealth and may join and benefit from other player's diving fortunes. In this game, players have to collect the right crew of divers, sailors, and archeologists, race to wreck sites to claim the best spots to dive from, and scout the seas to discover new wrecks. Players have to take risks if they want to be the most wealthy diver! Now in stock at Labyrinth.



BattleLands


BattleLands is a fast and furious game of turf warfare for 3-5 players. Send your fighters to seize key locations, or recruit even fiercer warriors who can help you turn the tide! Use your faction's abilities to play dirty and keep your opponents guessing your next move! Set in the world of the upcoming Adventure Book game Aftermath, BattleLands: Aftermath Edition takes place in a post-apocalyptic land in which humans are extinct. Now the animals of the world try to survive by competing for territory, food, and precious technology.



Star Wars Legion: Clone Wars Core Set


This Core Set invites you to enter a completely new era of infantry battles in the Star Wars galaxy, pitting the overwhelming Separatist droid forces against the Republic’s crack armies of clone troopers and Jedi Knights. As you do, you’ll assemble a force of the Clone Wars' most iconic heroes, villains, troopers, and vehicles, including Obi-Wan Kenobi and General Grievous. In addition to introducing the Galactic Republic and Separatist Alliance to the game, this Core Set contains all the cards, tools and tokens you need to begin staging your own Star Wars battles right away, making this the perfect starting point to begin building your Star Wars: Legion collection!



Star Wars Legion Expansions



Check out these new expansions to Star Wars Legion. The B1 Battle Droids Unit Expansion gives you the chance to supplement your Separatist Alliance forces with even more battle droids, while the Phase I Clone Troopers Unit Expansion contains a full unit of seven unique, unpainted Phase I Clone miniatures.



Foothills


Foothills is a tactical and intriguing two-player card game from new designer Ben Bateson and the designer of Snowdonia, Tony Boydell that came out this past September and is now in stock at Labyrinth. Using your five action cards cleverly, collect resources, remove rubble, build track and stations, and use the action spaces you unlock, all the while collecting more victory points than your opponent. In the end, the player with the most victory points wins!



The Aquicorn Cove


In the co-operative game, Aquicorn Cove, 2-4 players take on the roles of members of a small fishing village struggling to survive while maintaining a balance with the natural world. To win, the villagers must feed and grow their village, while helping to restore the health of the reef and aquatic ecosystem. The villagers are fortunate, though, and the waters of their cove are home to the beautiful and benevolent aquicorns, as well as the wondrous reef guardian Aure, who can help them both to understand the impact humans are having on the environment and to save the village.



ClipCut Parks


ClipCut Parks is a first of its kind, innovating roll-and-write gameplay as the first roll-and-cut game! The city needs your help! The mayor has called on you to create a set of gorgeous parks with greenery to beautify the urban landscape. With a pair of scissors and a plan, use your snipping talents to clip a park full of dazzling multi-colored features. The first player to complete five park cards wins!

Pokemon Pale Moon GX


There is a new GX Tag Team here just in time for Halloween. In this box is a Tag Team card with Trevenant and Dusknoir, both of which are Ghost types.



Horrified


The stakes have been raised. Imagine living in a place so wretched that it's not plagued by one, two, or even three monsters — but seven of the most horrifying fiends! In this game, you'll come face to face with them all as you work together to rid the town of the maniacal or misunderstood creatures…before it's too late. Horrified includes high-quality sculpted miniatures (Frankenstein, The Bride of Frankenstein, The Wolf Man, Dracula, The Mummy, The Invisible Man, Creature from the Black Lagoon). Its innovative, easy-to-learn, cooperative gameplay has players working together against the monsters with varying levels of difficulty. Just as each monster is unique, they require different strategies and tactics to be defeated.

What's New at Labyrinth 10/11/2019

Come check out these new and newly restocked games at Labyrinth!




Letter Jam


In a fashion reminiscent of Blind Man's Bluff or Hanabi, Letter Jam is a game in which players must hold their letter-card face away from themselves and toward the other players. The game plays with two to six players and was a big hit at GenCon this year, as a cooperative word game in which you must help each other figure out your individual letters in order to compose meaningful words from them. 



Illusion



From the designer who brought us The Mind!, Wolfgang Warsch's Illusion is now in stock at Labyrinth! It plays two to five players and requires them to see past the optical illusions on each card so that players may arrange cards in order of the most prominent color on each card. This may not be a new game but it is still a great one. Can you see through the illusions?



Res Arcana


Res Arcana has been restocked at Labyrinth. For those unfamiliar with the game, Res Arcana requires players to choose a mage, gather essences, craft unique artifacts, and use them to summon dragons, conquer places of power, and achieve victory! The game contains elements of card drafting, hand management, and variable player powers and plays with two to four and is considered a light to medium-weight game.



Sierra West



Sierra West is a deck-building and worker placement game of medium complexity. It can be played with one to four players and is highly modular, containing four different sets that allow you to modify the mode of play. In the game, players take on the role of expedition leader to a group of pioneers in the 1840s, heading out West toward California in search of opportunities for fortune and prosperity. In order to succeed and win the most victory points, players will take actions like claiming cards from the mountain, building cabins, gaining resources, and advancing their wagons. One really appealing aspect of the game is that it can be played under an hour once players become familiar with the rules and set up.



King of Tokyo Second Edition, Monster Pack 3: Cybertooth


Cybertooth — a giant two-legged robot that can transform into a fearsome sabertoothed tiger — is about to hit the town! Infused with the power of the ancient berserkers, Cybertooth will settle for nothing less than the tiger's share! Will you, too, succumb to the berserker fury? The Cybertooth Monster Pack introduces a new game component: the berserk die! You can use the berserk die in your games even if you play without Evolution cards or are not playing with Cybertooth. The Cybertooth Monster Pack is compatible with the King of Tokyo and King of New York base games, and with all their expansions.




Paladins of the West Kingdom


Paladins of the West Kingdom is a big worker-placement game in a little box. Fans of Raiders of the North Sea and Architects of the West Kingdom will not be disappointed by the latest installment in Shem Phillips' series. Like in the aforementioned titles, Paladins is full of unique choices and paths to victory. Players will choose which paladins to enlist, which outposts and fortifications to build, and which monks to commission all in an effort to fend off invaders from all borders--just to name a few of the choices available. Yet, despite all of these difficult-to-choose-from options for constructing your engine the most difficult task of all may just be fitting all of the pieces back into the box. 



Quacks of Quedlinburg: The Herb Witches



The Herb Witches expansion adds one more player to the mix and adds all-new recipe books. The expansion also adds a couple new ingredients, as well as the herb witches, who may be able to lend a hand to those struggling with a recipe!



We're Doomed


It's back in stock at Labyrinth! We're Doomed is a fun, fast-paced game about the end of the world and about who gets to make it onto the rocket leaving said ending-world. Each player takes on the role of a political or ideological power that has a unique ability. Everyone pools resources together while working against a fifteen-minute sand timer to build the rocket and then the seats.




Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Devastator


Decks and strategies may come and go, but some cards are eternal! Duel Devastator is packed with 56 Ultra Rare cards that transcend individual strategies, headlined by spectacular new variant artwork of Ash Blossom & Joyous Spring, Ghost Ogre & Snow Rabbit, Ghost Reaper & Winter Cherries, Ghost Belle & Haunted Mansion, and Ghost Sister & Spooky Dogwood!



Skulk Hollow



Skulk Hollow is a 2-player, asymmetric, tactical combat game. Players use action cards to move their units, summon, and use special abilities. Play starts on an initial world map, but progresses to the Foxen player leaping onto the Guardian player board and taking out different parts of the character. The two players take the roles of either a towering behemoth of a Guardian trying to eliminate the clans of foxes who have been causing havoc on the countryside, or a band of foxen heroes out to vanquish the evil beast that has been terrorizing the land and reunite the four kingdoms of Børe. The Guardian wins the game by either eliminating the Foxen King, or by gaining enough Tribute. The Foxen Heroes win the game by eliminating the Guardian.




Villainous: Evil Comes Prepared



Evil Comes Prepared is a new expansion that comes with three new exciting villains, including Scar, Ratigan, and Yzma all of whom are ready to do all manner of mischief in order to achieve their unique goals.

Abomination



Abomination: The Heir of Frankenstein is a competitive game of strategic monster building for 2-4 players, inspired by Mary Shelley's classic novel of gothic horror. In the game, the creature demands your help to accomplish what his own creator would not: to bring to life an abomination like itself, a companion to end its miserable solitude. This is a worker placement and resource management game that uses narrative elements to draw players in. The game ends when you succeed in bringing your creation to life or when the Captain kills the creature, whichever happens first. Then the player with the most points fulfills Frankenstein's dark legacy, becoming his heir, for good or ill...

What's New at Labyrinth 10/04/2019

Come check out both our new and newly restocked games!


Silver 


Your village has been overrun by savage werewolves, which are represented by the number on each of the cards that make up your village. To get rid of these fanged fiends faster than the neighboring villages, use your residents' special abilities and your powerful secret weapon: a silver amulet. Call for a vote when you think you have the fewest werewolves, but be careful; everyone else gets one more turn to save their own village first... Silver can be played as a standalone game or combined with Silver Bullet or other Silver decks. Each version of the game has different card abilities. 



PARKS


Players will take on the role of two hikers as they trek across different trails during four seasons of the year. Each trail represents one season of the year, and with each season’s passing, the trails will change and grow steadily longer. Each turn, players will send one of their hikers down the Trail. While on the Trail, hikers will land on a site—such as seeing Mountain—and takes its action, in this case gaining a Mountain token. When a hiker is on a site, other hikers cannot visit it unless they spend their campfire to share the site. Canteens and Gear can also be used to improve your access to resources through the game. When a hiker reaches the end of the trail they can spend tokens they’ve received from the Trail to visit Parks to earn points. Your goal is to have the most points at the end of the year. Welcome to PARKS!



Encore


In Encore!, first published as Noch mal!, the dice determine which color and how many spaces you can mark off on your playing sheet — but the starting player may first evaluate what everyone's doing, then remove two dice, leaving everyone else to make their choices with the dice that remain...


Arkham: Dead of Night


In Dead of Night, investigators explore the facets of Arkham best left unseen in the light of day. Organized crime builds a strong foothold in the city, secret cults labor for a dark master, an alien moon hangs overhead, and unknowable horrors stalk the night.
