Important Restocks and New Games 01/24/20

Check out what's new at Labyrinth as well as these great games we just got back in stock!



Pokemon Alolan Sandlash GX Box

This new GX comes with a really cool ability that has some great potential combos. This particular Sandlash has an ability called, "Spiky Shield," which allows the Sandlash to place damage counters on the Pokemon that attacks it while it is active. These damage counters get placed even if the Sandlash is K.O.'d in the process. The Sandlash's GX attack, "Spiky Storm," then allows the Sandlash to deal 100 damage to each Pokemon with a damage counter on it, though benched Pokemon don't have weakness and resistance applied to them when the attack hits.



Oceans Deluxe KS Edition

Oceans KS Deluxe Edition comes with foil promo cards, card sleeves, a 5-6 player expansion, acrylic fish tokens, and cloth food bags. This game is in a similar vein to Evolution (its predecessor), but it is more concerned with keeping balance in the ecosystem. For instance, there is a chance your species may even overpopulate and cause problems because of overpopulation.



Expedition to Newdale

Expedition to Newdale is the new Oh my Goods! game from renowned designer Alexander Pfister. In this board game adaption of the successful card game, 1 to 4 players from 12 and up compete in different chapters to experience the world of the Longsdale kingdom once again. The story of Expedition to Newdale starts about five years after the events from Oh my Goods! Escape to Canyon Brook, but you don’t need to know the prequels at all. Each chapter of the game lasts about 90 minutes which adds up to around 12 hours of exciting campaign gameplay. And when you found your favorite chapter while playing the campaign, you can always come back and play it again to have even more fun!



Wavelength

Wavelength is a social guessing game in which two teams compete to read each other's minds. Teams take turns rotating a dial to where they think a hidden bullseye is located on a spectrum. One of the players on your team — the Psychic — knows exactly where the bullseye is, and draws a card with a pair of binaries on it (such as: Job - Career, Rough - Smooth, Fantasy - Sci-Fi, Sad Song - Happy Song, etc). The Psychic must then provide a clue that is *conceptually* where the bullseye is located between those two binaries. For example, if the card this round is HOT-COLD and the bullseye is slightly to the "cold" side of the center, the Psychic needs to give a clue somewhere in that region. Perhaps "salad"? After the Psychic gives their clue, their team discusses where they think the bullseye is located and turns the dial to that location on that spectrum. The closer to the center of the bullseye the team guess, the more points they score!



Theros Beyond Death Playmats, Sleeves, Deck Boxes, and Boosters and Gift Bundles (Oh, My!)

We now have playmats with art from Theros Beyond Death, as well as new deck boxes and sleeves with art of the three planeswalkers of this set (i.e., Ashiok, Elspeth, and Calix).

Roam is a pool-building and area control style game for two to four players by tried-and-tested designer, Ryan Laukat.
