The Stockvalanche just hit and a wave of new titles has just swept away the staff in a deluge of cardboard and plastic.
Did you just assume the Holiday was over?
A long long time ago in a galaxy far far away… a new wave of ships for the Star Wars X-Wing Miniatures game roar into battle. Swarm of nimble TIE/fo Fighters flit around in duels with Resistance T-70 X-Wing and RZ-2 A-Wing space superiority fighters, while the forces of Scum & Villainy bolster their ranks with Mining Guild TIE-Fighters. Canny commanders looking to bolster their ranks can also look forward to X-Wing Resistance and First Order Conversion Kits, now available.
Closer to home, on the battlefields of the 31st Century, giant humanoid mechanical war machines known as BattleMechs dominate the field of war. Two BattleTech boxes: the BattleTech – Beginner Box and BattleTech – A Game of Armored Combat arrive with all new miniatures and maps (including new sculpts of designs never seen in ages). BattleMaster, anyone? We’ve also got Shattered Fortress as the BattleTech timeline grinds inexorably forward past the Dark Age into uncharted territory.
Now the board games, and this one’s huge.
Incur the wrath of Vul-kar in Fireball Island – The Wrath of Vul-Kar as your adventurers traverse the island, trying to stay ahead of the fireball spewing spirit. And don’t forget The Last Adventurer expansion, which ups the number of adventurers on the island to five.
Then, all good things must come to an end. With the Oblivaeon expansion closing out the series, the Sentinels of the Multiverse playset is finally complete as well. Don’t forget to pick up the Benchmark, Stuntman and Void Guard packs as well.
Then there’s GEN7, the latest game in the Crossroads series. An international colony ship has left an exhausted Earth, headed for a distant planet in the Epsilon Eridani system. Now, just as a new command team takes control of the ship, a terrible mystery emerges that will threaten the entire mission. The commanders of Gen7 are about to discover that everything is not as it seems, and the fate of the human species will hang on the choices they make.
Then there’s Scythe Encounters, a mini expansion and the Burning Wheel RPG.
Then. Restocks. Colt Express. Catan. Eldritch Horror. Magic Maze. Spyfall. Unlock. Heroes of Terrinoth. Puerto Rico. Resistance Avalon. Power Grid. Kingdomino. Deception – Murder in Hong Kong. Bang!.
