The fate of the world is in your hands…
In this third installment of the award-winning Shards of Infinity Deckbuilding Game, players can choose one of 2 modes to play!
Play like Classic Shards and use the hero Rez’s new Relics and Allies to take down your opponents in player vs. player battles, OR heed the warning of the time-traveling Rez and play cooperatively in a new campaign mode to battle through a series of bosses with up to four of your friends!(Source: Publisher description)
The expansion is expected to release later this year. We will add it to our pre-order section once the UK release has been confirmed.
Wildlands was a big success for Osprey Games. For later this year the publisher has announced two new releases based on Martin Wallace’s design.
The first one is a new map pack called The Fall of the Dark House. The pack will include three maps (Mansion, Hedge Maze and Crypt). The estimated release date for the pack is November 2019.
The second one is Judge Dredd: Helter Skelter, a new game using the Wildlands system but is based on the famous 2000 AD universe. The release is planned for the Essen board game show, so probably a retail release in late October.
German publisher Funtails has received the first pre-production copy of Glen More II.
Glen More II: Chronicles is a sequel to Glen More, expanding the gameplay substantially compared to the original game.
In Glen More II: Chronicles, each player represents the leader of a Scottish clan from the early medieval ages until the 19th century, a leader looking to expand their territory and wealth. The success of your clan depends on your ability to make the right decision at the right time, be it by creating a new pasture for your livestock, growing barley for whisky production, selling your goods on the various markets, or gaining control of special landmarks such as lochs and castles.
Improvements over the original Glen More include bigger tiles, better materials, new artwork, the ability for each player to control the end of the game, and balancing adjustments to the tiles for a better suspense curve. The game is designed to consist of one-third known systems, one-third new mechanisms, and one-third improvements to Glen More.(Source: Publisher description)
The video is available on Youtube and shows the quality of the components and a big box stuffed with token, meeples and the different expansion modules:
The game is available to pre-order and the publisher is aiming for a release in October/November.
Good news for everyone who missed it so far: the next print run of Gloomhaven is expected to arrive in September.
We have opened the pre-orders for the reprint and every pre-order we receive until the 25th July is guaranteed. All orders placed after the 25th are at the mercy of our supplier’s allocation.
Restoration Games is known for reviving classic games. Their newest project is Unmatched, based on Star Wars: Epic Duels.
Unmatched is a highly asymmetrical miniature fighting game for two or four players. Each hero is represented by a unique deck designed to evoke their style and legend. Tactical movement and no-luck combat resolution create a unique play experience that rewards expertise, but just when you’ve mastered one set, new heroes arrive to provide all new match-ups.(Source: Publisher description)
The game is expected to get released sometime in August. If you would like to know more about the game, the Watch it played-video is already available:
Deep Blue will be the next big box game from Days of Wonder.
Deep Blue is a push-your-luck and engine-building, family game where players dive for wealth and may join and benefit from other player’s diving fortunes. In this game, players will have to collect the right crew of divers, sailors, and archaeologists, race to wreck sites to claim the best spots to dive from, and scout the seas to discover new wrecks. Players will have to take risks if they want to be the most wealthy diver!(Source: Days of Wonder announcement)
The expected release date is October and we will start taking pre-orders as soon as we know the details for the UK release.
