The new arrivals for this week have been confirmed. We are expecting six new games:
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.
