Nevermore is a drafting game where you will assemble different sets of cards in order to gain points, heal yourself or even turn your opponents into ravens! Being transformed into a raven is a flavorful way to keep players in the game while still rewarding players who do well. While being turned into a raven doesn't eliminate you from the game, you want to be the last human standing to win. Once you get the hang of Nevermore, you'll find the mechanics play well and provide this drafting game with a flavor all of its own.

The latest expansion for Magic: the Gathering is here! Magic Origins is a core set that tells the origin stories of five planeswalkers through cards designed specifically for the set as well as some returning favorites. You can even find double-sided planeswalker cards that start out as legendary creatures and then flip to transform into powerful planeswalkers. We have Booster Packs, Intro Packs, Fat Packs, Deckbuilder's Toolkits and even seeded Prerelease Packs so there's something for new players and seasoned veterans alike.

Marvel Dice Masters: Age of Ultron has arrived, and it is filled with exciting new cards and dice for any Dice Masters player. This expansion contains not only Ultron and his drones, but also heroes and villains from other stories such as Star-Lord Rocket Racoon and Groot from Guardians of the Galaxy. In addition to that, there are also new rare zombified versions of cards that have some really powerful new abilities. Age of Ultron is a filled with lots of cool new stuff, making it the perfect addition to the Marvel Dice Masters game.

 The Unseen Forces expansion for Elder Sign is back, so if you missed it, now's your chance! New horrors from beyond the stars, new monsters, and a new mechanic: blessings and curses! Blessed characters will receive an extra white die to add to their rolls, making them stronger than your average investigator. On the other hand, cursed characters will have to roll a black die that negates any dice rolled with the same number. If that weren't enough, any player unfortunate enough to be cursed a second time will be about unlucky. Unseen Forces adds a lot of great new elements to Elder Sign, so if you're into the Lovecraft mythos, this expansion is certainly worth investigating.

By popular demand, we now have DEX Protection boxes in all sizes and colors. With velvet interiors and lots of space for double sleeved cards, these boxes keep your valuable cards safe wherever you go.

Yu-Gi-Oh: Dragons of Legend 2 is the newest expansion for the Yu-Gi-Oh trading card game, and if you're looking for cool dragons, look no further! With some of your favorite monsters, traps and spells from the animated series, get ready to duel with powerful new cards!

In other news, we've also received some cool new magnetic games in stock that are great for long car rides. Another thing that's pretty exciting is how we have Diamonds back in stock. Diamonds is a fantastic trick-taking game like Hearts, but with a cool jewel thief theme.
