Lots of new games up for pre-order

In the last few days, we have added a few new pre-orders to the shop website. Here is a quick look at the most interesting ones:

Menara (Zoch Verlag / End of March)

As a tight-knit team in Menara, players use pillars and wondrously-shaped temple floors to build a spectacularly soaring structure full of nooks and crannies. Cooperation and static skills are in demand since for each mistake in construction, you have to add another floor to the temple.

A steady hand, an alert mind, and mutual assistance can help you successfully complete what seems to top out at dizzy heights…

Moorea (dlp Games / April)

Even in the sun and under the palm trees, the inhabitants of the South Seas are still competing for the most valuable objects and the most impressive buildings. The dilemma is, either to directly produce canoes or huts using the resources each player gets by chance, or to invest these resources in tools which are more effective in the long run.

Moorea is an easy-to-learn game for families which invites the gamers to start playing immediately, but which has a depth and a lot of strategic possibilities arising during the game.

Master of the Galaxy (Ares Games / May)

The Galaxy is vast, rich and open to any species who discovers space flight… but nine Elder Races are expanding through space, ready to assimilate or exterminate anybody who stands in their way.

Drawing inspiration from classic science-fiction, movies, and computer games, Master of the Galaxy merges all these inspirations into a unique and colorful setting.

At the start of your conquest of the Galaxy, you have one star system, one Race card and a modest supply of resources. During the game, you will fill your bag with new resources that may lead you to victory depending on your chosen strategy. Moreover, you can use Progress and Political cards to help you to victory!

You can win this bag building game in different ways – by annihilating your opponents, by building 9 space bases, or by achieving dominance in diplomacy, economics, or science.

Brass Lancashire (Roxley Games / June)

Brass: Lancashire — first published as Brass — is an economic strategy game that tells the story of competing cotton entrepreneurs in Lancashire during the industrial revolution. You must develop, build, and establish your industries and network so that you can capitalize demand for iron, coal and cotton. The game is played over two halves: the canal phase and the rail phase.

Brass: Lancashire, the 2018 edition from Roxley Games, reboots the original Warfrog Games edition of Brass with new artwork and components, as well as a few rules changes.

Dark Souls: The Board Game – Darkroot Expansion (August)

The Darkroot Basin rests in between the Darkroot Garden and the eastern walls of Undead Burg. This is a deep basin filled with streams and waterfalls. The damp nature has given rise to fungus and mushrooms.

The first expansion for the Dark Souls Board Game adds new enemies, new encounters and two new bosses to the game.
