Sidereal Confluence will also make a comeback, but stock is very limited and already sold out to pre-orders. We are hoping to get more copies in before the end of the month, but have no confirmation for a second delivery yet.
Zombicide: Green Horde is the standalone sequel to Zombicide: Black Plague. Set in the same medieval era, players will take on the role of Survivors looking to defeat the shuffling, undead menace by any means possible.
In Green Horde, up to six players can join the battle for survival. They’ll combine forces and work cooperatively to accomplish their goals, and against all odds, stay alive. Fans of the Zombicide series have become familiar with the Walkers, Runners, Fatties, and Abominations that shuffle around, looking for victims. But the creatures they will face are not just zombie humans, they’re zombie orcs! The Survivors will have to gear up with a wide variety of medieval equipment if they hope to outlast these fearsome foes. Zombie Orcs are stronger than the classic zombie and represent a stiffer challenge to even seasoned undead-hunting veterans.
Also coming this week, but not online yet are Mystic Vale: Conclave, Legendary Creatures, Sunset Over Water and the reprints of the Memoir’ 44 expansions Winter Wars and Eastern Front. They should go online late afternoon/early evening.
Last week we have posted two Youtube channels bringing you weekly board game news shows. But they can’t cover everything, so here is a quick round-up of some news not covered by the two shows:
Shut Up & Sit Down has posted their review of Rising Sun and in my opinion, they again have hit the nail on the head – LINK
Gamelyn Games have announced the retail release dates for their next two games: Tiny Epic Defenders 2E in August and Tiny Epic Zombies at Halloween – LINK
Area Games has announced Battlestar Galactica – Starship Battles, a new miniatures games from the designers of Wings of War. No indication yet, when this will get released, but there will be a preview available at this year’s GenCon and I would assume at Essen as well – LINK
Phalanx is planning to bring back Ankh-Morpork a new, non-Discworld title called Nanty Narking – LINK
Gloomhaven: Forgotten Circles, the first expansion for the smash hit Gloomhaven, will be released at Essen this year (late October) – LINK
The Zombicide game series has been a big hit so far for Cool Mini or Not. With Zombicide: Black Plague and Green Horde CMON took the series back in time to a medieval world (and added a lot of fantasy with the Orcs and Goblins in Green Horde).
The newly announced Zombicide Invaders takes a time travel to the future:
Humans set off into the stars in search of high-powered fuel and found it in the remote corner of the universe on the small planet PK-L7. Their discovery of Xenium — a dark, oily compound deep below the planet’s surface — was everything they hoped for. But they found something else, too. The Xenos attack was brutal and unrelenting. While the scientists and soldiers have held them off the best they could, the Xenos are still coming…
Zombicide: Invader is a cooperative game in which 1-6 players face Xenos, an unfathomable swarm of infected Xenos controlled by the game itself. Each player takes on the role of one to six survivors in a sci-fi setting being overwhelmed by these Xenos. The goal is simple: Choose a mission, complete its objectives, kill as many Xenos as possible, and (most importantly) survive!
The game will start as a Kickstarter project on the 10th April and if it follows the timeline of the last CMON KS projects should be available early 2019.
