Undaunted: Reinforcements coming in August

Undaunted: Normandy was a great success for Osprey Games. For later this month we are expecting Undaunted: North Africa, the second game in the series.

And to give fans of the game(s) even more to do, Osprey Games have now announced Undaunted: Reinforcements, a new expansion that can be played with both games:

Undaunted: Reinforcements is a modular expansion that introduces a range of new rules, scenarios, and units. Unleash the might of the German and American tanks and see how your new squad options fare against them in Undaunted: Normandy, or make use of mines, assault aircraft, and other new units as you attempt to outfox your opponent in Undaunted: North Africa. Whether you have only one of the other, you’ll be able to play Undaunted for the first time in a four-player mode, or test your mettle in a solo mode by Dávid Turczi.

New missions for The crew

The Crew is the co-op trick-taking game from Kosmos and for many the favourite to win the Game of the Year award in Germany.

In the co-operative trick-taking game The Crew: The Quest for Planet Nine, the players set out as astronauts on an uncertain space adventure. What about the rumors about the unknown planet about? The eventful journey through space extends over 50 exciting missions. But this game can only be defeated by meeting common individual tasks of each player. In order to meet the varied challenges, communication is essential in the team. But this is more difficult than expected in space.
