Week 48: What has happened?

Last week was crazy busy, so not much time for updates here in the blog. But now with the weekend in sight there is time for a look back what has happened/arrived this week.

New arrivals this week included:

Arriving on Wednesday: Seven games and two expansion

The games and expansion on general UK release for next week have been confirmed:

There are more games coming from Germany, but we are not sure yet, if they will arrive next week or the week after. More about these games on Monday!

KeyForge: Watch it played and Starter Set pre-view

Next week is the release of KeyForge, the new card game from Magic designer Richard Garfield.

Enter a world where anything is possible in KeyForge! Here in the world’s first Unique Deck Game, two players become Archons racing to forge keys that unlock the hidden vaults of the Crucible, an artificial world built from pieces of countless planets. With an incredible array of creatures, artifacts, and abilities, no two decks are alike, and no two battles will ever be the same!

The game will be available as a Starterset and single decks. If you would like to know what comes with the Starterset, have a look at Techraptor’s preview:

We received a KeyForge Call of the Archons Starter Set. The set contains a quickstart rule sheet, two pre-made and set Starter Decks (for learning the game, these two decks are the same in every Starter Set), 2 Unique KeyForge decks (boxed inside the Starter Set exactly as if you would buy them individually) and a set of cards and tokens that are used throughout the game.

And if you would like to get an early start, here is the Watch it played video for Keyforge that should get you ready for your first game:

FFG: Preview for new Fallout expansion

Fallout- New California is the first expansion for the Fallout board game. FFG has now posted the first preview, looking closer at the five new survivors it will add to the game:

The New California expansion introduces five new survivors to Fallout: The Board Game and, before anything else, it’s important to get to know who you might be. Each of these plucky newcomers has their own perspective on life in the wasteland, and today, we’re going to take a closer look at just what makes each of them tick!

Discover: Lands Unknown Preview

FFG has posted the first preview of exploration in their survival game Discover: Lands Unknown.

You’ve awoken to find yourself far from home. The vast wilderness stretches before you, the days are long and every night is a struggle to survive. While you’re not sure how you ended up here, you know that answers won’t come from sitting around the meager campsite you’ve constructed. You’ll need to explore to find food, water, and most importantly, a way home!

Join us today as we look at how to get your bearings and explore the world around you in Discover: Lands Unknown!

Discover: Lands Unknows is called a “Unique Game” by FFG. Here is the explanation of what this term means:

[…] meaning every copy in the world is different. Through a sorting algorithm, the combination of components found in your game will be unlike any other copy in existence. While your group of survivors may find themselves stranded in a dense forest or on a freezing mountaintop, your friend’s copy may see a different group of survivors trying to escape a deserted island or harsh desert. However, each game is still monitored by the same set of rules that will guide you in your journey into the unknown.

The game has a planned release date sometime in December and is available now to pre-order.
