Asmodee has posted a preview for Cities of Splendor, the upcoming expansion for Splendor:
With Cities of Splendor—a collection of four distinct expansions, each offering a unique experience—you can make your dreams of fame a reality as you outthink your opponents. No matter which expansion you choose to use, you’ll find an entirely new way to play Splendor, expanding the game’s replayability without sacrificing the elegance of the original.
And ZMan Games has announced Majesty: For the Realm, a new card game from Splendor designer Marc Andre:
In Majesty, you take on the role of a king or queen seeking to gain power during the Middle Ages. Like any good monarch, you have plenty of subjects ready to do your bidding and help your kingdom grow. Running a kingdom is no easy task and you must make the best use of your subjects and buildings if you want to succeed.
Here is a quick round-up of the most interesting news of the last few days:

These are the newest titles from a long list of games. It definitely looks like Asmodee/FFG/Days of Wonder will have a big presence at the Expo this year.

Here are some interesting announcements/news of the last week:
For next Wednesday we are expecting an interesting batch of new games:
I’m interested the most in the two HABA games Karuba and Adventure Land. I’ve seen them last year at the Essen board game shop and was impressed.
Another highlight of next week’s new games is 13 Days – The Cuban Missile Crisis: according to the publisher a game that “scratches that Twilight Struggle itch in only 45 minutes”.
