Legendary Encounters: X – Files has been released in the US in September.
Legendary® Encounters: The X-Files™ Deck Building Game is a card game themed around the award-winning television series The X-files™. Players will take on the roles of their favorite truth-seeking special agents like Mulder, Scully or Skinner and work together to expose and overcome a variety of grand conspiracies. Mystery and subterfuge fog the way forward as players, encouraged by beliefs and encountered by doubts, work to reveal and defeat an unrelenting stream of malevolent agents and paranormal entities.
Unfortunately no sign or announcement yet for the UK. At least we can check out a video review from Dice and Dragons to see if it is worth the wait:
Shards of Infinity combines an unprecedented level of strategy and customization into one small box. Rather than competing for points, players must outlast their opponents and reduce their health to zero, which can be done in a number of ways. Each player starts the game with a basic deck of cards, and they can acquire new cards from a central display of six cards (as in Ascension) and add these new cards to their deck or use them immediately, depending on what they are.
We will try the game at tonight’s Gaming Night, so I can tell you more about the game next week.
The two restocks are Council of Four (Cranio Creations / from the designers of The Voyages of Marco Polo and Grand Austria Hotel) and Imhotep (new big box game from Kosmos / German edition but English rules are available on BGG)
