Wizkids Game has announced a new Star Trek game and this time it is a flicking game:
Designed by Mike Elliott (Thunderstone, Star Trek: Fleet Captains), Star Trek: Conflick in the Neutral Zone has the Federation and Klingon Empire vying to exploit the resource-rich planets of the Neutral Zone. Players flick discs representing various starships from the Star Trek universe in an attempt to collect resources or attack other ships. Players bring a ship within range of an energy or command point planet to collect resources. If a planet is already occupied, the player can attack the rival ship by knocking it off the planet or game board.
The release of the game is planned for the first quarter of 2019.
The closer we get to the end of May the quieter it gets for us because most of our customers are starting to prepare for the UK Games Expo. But we still had a good start to the month with lots of sales and newly placed pre-orders, so here is the look at last month’s Top 5.
Today was the release day for Sanctum of Twilight, the latest expansion for Mansions of Madness 2nd Edition.
Sanctum of Twilight is an expansion for Mansions of Madness Second Edition that unites two new investigators against the Order of the Silver Twilight in two thrilling scenarios. With new spells, items, mechanics, and a new monster, this expansion immerses players in the Arkham Files universe as they confront the dangers threatening Arkham from within.
In addition, we have received a delivery with two new games and five restocks.
Today Kung Fu Zoo, the new game from Wizkids Games, has been released.
Kung Fu Zoo is a dice-flicking dexterity game for 2-4 players. You control a team of highly-trained animals, from crocodiles to zebras, in a Kung Fu battle against your rivals. Who will be tonight’s champions of the zoo? Grab some dice and find out!
Here is a quick review of the game from Tom Vasel:
Our Easter Break is over, yesterday was our first day back at the office. All the new orders that came in during our break have been processed and shipped and all deliveries have been unpacked and the stock added to the website.
With the Gama Tradeshow going on in Reno at the moment, Twitter is a very good source for board game news. Here are three interesting tidbits we have picked up in yesterday and today:
Wizkids is releasing a Mage Knigt: Ultimate Edition later this year.

WizKids has released first details of the new Magic boardgame at the Gama Trade Show in Las Vegas:
In Magic: The Gathering: Heroes of Dominaria Board Game, players take on the role of a powerful Hero as they travel to the lands of Dominaria. As the player explores the ancient lands, they will need to build sites, rediscover lost artifacts, and confront the sinister Cabal in order to gain the resources needed to save the multiverse before rival Heroes do.
In this Euro game designed for 2 to 4 players, explore Magic’s most iconic plane and experience the trials and tribulations of being a heroic force on Dominaria. Visit storied locations such as Llanowar, Urborg, and Keld. Draw mana from the world to power abilities and recruit heroes to aid in quests. Discover powerful artifacts and create leylines to draw even more mana from distant lands. Build sites to increase your bond with a location. The land of Dominaria is filled with adventure and excitement! In true Eurogame fashion, use strategy to score the most victory points and emerge victorious.
The game includes (not final) a game board, 4 player mats, 16 hero tokens, 24 site tokens, 32 leyline tokens, 150 mana tokens, 1 turn tracker token, 20 cabal tokens, 15 artifact tokens, 20 site mana tokens, 50 card Dominaria deck, 45 card quest deck, 10 public quest tiles, 20 card artifact deck, rulebook, and two-part organizational tray. Release is planned for August/September.
Wizkids is continuing to expand their board game line and has announced Beyond the Edge:
In Beyond the Edge, created by Ken Shannon, the players are heroic starship captains trying to preserve the tiny remnants of a universe where the very fabric of space and time has been mangled by ancient wars. Setting out from the free planet Orion, they must contend with pirates and other threats as they discover what exists out in space. The game uses a system called “Evolve/Beyond” that allows players to retain what they have gained from one game to the next, creating a story for their character that carries through with each playing in a manner similar to “legacy” style games. The decisions players make and the groups they ally with determine what abilities and upgrades they can earn in later games. They can even use the “Dry Dock” system to take their characters and ships and use them in games with a different group of players.
Expected release date for the legacy-style game is April and we will offer it for pre-orders as soon as we have the details for the UK release.
