New Arrivals 8/4/2015 to 8/17/2015

by Alexander "The Sixth Tribe" Smith

Make New York into a majestic city of skyscrapers in New York 1901! Players will gain points by claiming their stake and placing tiles of different sizes into various lots. Is all the space full? Knock down old buildings and replace them with newer, grander monuments to industry! New York 1901 is part strategy, part puzzle, and all fun.

In Viceroy, you'll have to bring allies to your side and create a pyramid of cards representing your power base. Each card you add to the pyramid has to match previously placed cards, so you'll have to plan ahead when you choose who joins your side. With limitless ways to expand your magical skills, military might and economic independence, knowing how you place your cards will be essential to victory.

Evolution: Flight is the long awaited expansion to one of our favorite games. In Flight, you can take to the skies in order to ensure the survival of your species. A flying species has access to exclusive food sources and are safe from ground-dwelling predators, but this comes at a cost. Flying requires extra cards to develop the trait in a new species, requires more food, and flying creatures can only get so big. Flight is a great expansion that really compliments the original well.

Five Tribes: the Artisans of Naquala is another expansion that adds new mechanics to a game we already love. Purple artisan meeples will let you buy magical items while mountains will create impassable tiles. If you thought you've solved the shifting sands of Five Tribes, think again! 

The Vs. System 2PCG is the new and updated version of the 2004 superhero collectible card game by Upper Deck. Vs. System 2PCG is non-collectible, so it's not about who has the best superheroes, but who can use them best.

Lost Legacy: Third Chronicle - Sacred Grail and Staff of Dragons can be played separately, together, or even with other Lost Legacy sets! New cards in this set will give you new secret goals that can help you win the game before it's even ended...but people might catch wise to your scheme and try to snatch victory for themselves. Can you uncover the coveted Lost Legacy? Find out for yourself!

We've been waiting for the Star Wars X-Wing Imperial Raider for some time now, and I'm happy to say that this Corvette-class Imperial Star Destroyer is finally here! With special rules for maneuvering and shield energy, this is an impressive ship that truly feels epic. Now that the Tantive IV is no longer the largest ship on the table, it's time to show those Rebel scum who's in charge!

Pokémon Ancient Origins takes ancient secrets and turns them into modern-day power! New tricks such as Dangerous Energy will let your pokémon use their most powerful moves while also giving them extra skills. Ancient Origins also includes even more EX Pokémon for your collection, including Hoopa EX, Kyurem EX, Jolteon EX and more! If you're very lucky, you might even find alternate art versions of Primal Kyogre EX, Primal Groudon EX and Mega Rayquaza EX!

Yu-Gi-Oh Clash of Rebellions adds new monsters, traps, effects and more from the new Yu-Gi-Oh Arc-V series. Pendulum summoning, more Toons, more Red-Eyes, more Gem-Knights....the list goes on. Suffice to say, this expansion is filled with cards that will help you create new decks or improve old ones.
