We’ve had a slab of new stuff roll in over the course of the previous week, so we figured we might as well recap the new titles which have trundled in.
Your task seems simple. You are given a word, and you need your teammates to guess it. However, the other team has already seen your word, and they have made a list of “trapwords” that you can’t say. You don’t know what’s on their list…and there’s a time limit. Go! Trapwords is a fun and fast-paced party game for two teams, who simultaneously prepare their lists of trapwords. The simple task of giving clues for your word is made fiendishly difficult by not knowing which words you can’t say. If you succeed, you advance to higher levels with more trapwords and additional challenges.
Have you completed a GEN7 campaign? Want to spice it up? The Breaking Point expansion for GEN7 introduces the new Logistics Barracks to the game and allows for a fifth player to join your GEN7 campaign! Want to show your friends that it was you carrying them the entire time? The new competitive scenario in The Breaking Point lets you take the end of the campaign one step further, allowing up to six players to battle it out for final control of the ship.
Let’s make one thing perfectly clear: The island is out to get you. Fireballs, of course. But there’s a whole lot more on the island that will have you running for your life. The Crouching Tiger, Hidden BEES! expansion for Fireball Island introduces two new threats. The crouching tiger introduces a dexterity shot. Place it on the table next to the board, press down, and launch it towards your foes. The hidden bees make up for their smaller size with their swarming numbers. Put all the little yellow marbles into the beehive, pour them through Vul-Kar, and watch the mayhem ensue.
Unlock! Exotic Adventures features three new “escape room” scenarios that you can play on your tabletop. Explore an island full of dinosaurs in Expedition: Challenger, fend off the nightmarish Boogeymen in Night of the Boogeymen and take a trip to medieval Arabia in Scheherazade’s Last Tale.
And then there’s this.
