Mythotopiaby Tree Frog Games

Mythotopia is a deck-building game set in a medieval fantasy world. You customise your deck by drafting cards and expanding into provinces.

In theory no two games should ever be the same. The board is made up of forty provinces, each of which has its own card. You are randomly dealt a number of provinces at the beginning of the game, which determines your initial positions, which you mark with town pieces. There are twenty-seven Improvement cards in all, of which sixteen are drawn and placed on display. These are the only cards that can be drafted during the game. Each player also has a set of five Initial cards. You shuffle your Province cards in with your Initial cards to make your starting deck. You then draw a hand of five cards.

Tide of Iron Next Wave by 1A Games

The starting point into the series is the base game TIDE OF IRON that includes American and German forces that fought from D-Day across northwest Europe in 1944-1945. Expansions add plastic pieces representing soldiers, vehicles, and weapons of other nations, new map boards, special rules, plus new scenarios, strategy cards, markers, and tokens.

Onward To Venus by Treefrog Games

Onward to Venus is set in the retro sci-fi world created by Greg Broadmore. In this alternative reality space travel exists in an end-of-the-nineteenth century setting. There are planets and moons all waiting to be settled and exploited, although the local inhabitants might kick up a fuss. Fortunately for the Earthling civilisers there is a range of highly useful ray-guns, created by Doctor Grordbort, to convince the natives to behave themselves. Foremost exponent of the benefits of the good Doctor’s weaponry would be Lord Cockswain, recognised by all as the Earth’s best human.

To be victorious, you will have to cleverly plan out the use of your resources. Three different resources are available; so make sure you don’t run out of any of them too quickly. You will have to balance a number of ways to score points to secure your victory. Hawaii awaits you!
