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.
BGG has started posting their preview videos of game presented at the Gama Trade Show. They have just started and more videos will follow in the next few days, but the two highlights for me so far are:
Here are some interesting announcements/news of the last week:
Asmodee has announced a new expansion for 7 Wonders: “7 Wonders Duel: Pantheon brings the gods of the ancient world into 7 Wonders Duel. You can now seek the favor of deities from five different ancient cultures and bring them together to watch over your city. You might even build your patron gods and goddesses lavish temples to dwell in, or dedicate to them one of the expansion’s two new Wonders.” LINK: Asmodee-Website
Another new expansion has been announced from Asmodee: “For the first time in Colt Express, the Marshal and Prisoners expansion gives one of the players the chance to take on the role of the marshal himself, unlocking an entirely new way to play the game. You’ll also find a prison car to attach to your train as the perfect place to incarcerate lawbreakers or earn some more money by freeing the prisoners already trapped there.” LINK: Asmodee-Website
