New Arrivals 3/3/2016 to 3/6/2016

by Alexander "Enigma Wrapped in a Sudoku" Smith

Rome wasn't built in a day, but you and your friends, Romans, and countrymen can build it in about an hour when you play Rome: City of Marble. Players take turns placing diamond tiles outward from the center in an effort to bring civic works to the city of Rome. The people might grumble that you've never given them anything, but you can prove them all wrong after building a fabulous aqueduct!

Labyrinth is excited to bring back two classic games that are often requested: Waterworks and Upwords. 

Protecting your pipes and attacking others' is the name of the game in Waterworks. This reprint of a classic retro card game will have you building and fixing a network of pipes while your opponents will try to poke holes in your best laid lead pipe plans. 

Upwords is a 3-D wordgame where you'll manipulate the words on the board by placing tiles on top of existing words, changing a few letters and creating exciting new words. Upwords expounds on the popular crossword game genre and does a good job of it. This game is a true classic, and if you don't already have a copy to call your own, the new printing is quite the handsome addition to any collection.

Warhammer Quest: The Adventure Card Game is finally back after selling out almost immediately when it was first released. It's a great way to experience the epic high fantasy world of Warhammer with your friends. An episodic campaign will have you battling fearsome foes and finding mythical treasures. This complex, co-operative game will have players taking on the roles of heroes with their own strengths and weaknesses, and finding out how the adventuring party can handle the threats that beset them.

Munchkin Treasure Hunt brings all the monster-fighting, treasure-grabbing fun of Munchkin to young adventurers. With funny cards like a Fluffy Pillow weapon or Protective Kittens, you'll be battling ogres, witches, ghosts and more!

Labyrinth also received a complete restock of lots of new puzzles. 

Skewb Xtreme takes twisting puzzles to a whole new level. Not only does each X have to be solved, but the inner diamonds must also match on their facets.

And here's a new one for the folks that love really, really hard puzzles. The Sudoku V-Cube is a puzzle wrapped in...well, another puzzle. Solving the 3x3 cube will take some serious sudoku skills, so even seasoned puzzle solvers might have some difficulty with this one.

Star Realms Colony Wars is a stand alone expansion for the popular space deck-building game, Star Realms. With all new cards, this set is exciting for experienced players, but can also be picked up by new players. By combining Colony Wars with the base set or another copy of Colony Wars, you'll be able to play more than just two players. The Cosmic Gambit booster also adds new gambit cards that will give players special powers.

Lego Crazy Action Contraptions and Lego Chain Reactions are two Lego activity sets where you'll be given all the tools to make amazing devices with your favorite modular building bricks. These gears, axles, and bricks will work with any other Lego product, so what you can build is only limited by your imagination.

Build eight different papercraft robots and have them fight in Smash Bot Battle. After folding and assembling your robot warrior, you can attach it to a motorized base and have the bots go at each other...or the city!

Make thirty different iconic spaceships with Star Wars Folded Flyers. TIE Fighters, A-Wings...even the Millennium Falcon are included. See if you have the folding skills to make a paper spaceship that can make the Kessel Run in less than 12 parsecs!

Smash Up: It's Your Fault is the result of four fan-voted favorites being given their time in the sun with a brand new expansion. Now you can pair Sharks, Dragons, Super Heroes or characters from Greek Mythology with the classic Smash Up factions...or even with themselves. How awesome are Robot Sharks? Maybe only as cool as Dragon Ninjas! Try out these new decks and see what your new favorites are!

Dungeons & Dragons: Curse of Strahd is a revamped adventure that takes a team of adventurers to Count Strahd von Zarovich's Castle Ravenloft. For extra enjoyment, players can even acquire a real life Tarokka Deck (coming soon) that will let fate determine key aspects of your adventure. This classic story has been polished and remastered for the 5th edition rules, so if you haven't experienced the Gothic horror of Castle Ravenloft, give this module a try.
