Caught up, as we were, with the events of Tuesday we had little time to post about the new arrivals in the store. Now that the turbulent events following the election have passed we’ve pulled ourselves into the store and are ready to chronicle the new releases.

Warhammer 40,000 Conquest Descendants of Isha War Pack by FFG

Long ago, there was only one race of Eldar, but their depravity led inexorably to Chaos. Now, you must choose whether you will walk the path of asceticism and self-denial with the Eldar or revel in unlimited excess and devour the souls of your enemies with the Dark Eldar. Whichever faction you embrace, however, you’ll find new options to draw upon the power of the galaxy’s ancient races in Descendants of Isha!

This expansion contains two new warlords, one Eldar and one Dark Eldar, each with an eight-card signature squad, alongside forty-two other cards (three copies each of fourteen distinct cards). Each faction in Warhammer 40,000: Conquest finds useful tactics: you may clear entire planets with a deadly Space Wolves tank, fire the devastating Artillery of the Astra Militarum, or transform your opponents into Squigs with the uncontrollable psychic power of the Orks. In Descendants of Isha, the Warlord cycle comes to a resounding conclusion, challenging you to find victory as the battle for the Traxis sector reaches new heights!

Yomi Menelker and Persephone decks by Sirlin Games

Menelker and Persephone are both very powerful-feeling characters, which is consistent with their lore. Menelker can force the opponent to discard, like no one else. He can destroy cards in the opponent’s discard pile too, which no one else can do. He has truly embraced whatever “taboo tactics” he needs to in order to win. His AAAA super is also one of the best in the game.

Persephone’s dominant personality shines through in her gameplay as well. She can keep opponents on their knees with repeated knockdowns while she draws more and more cards. She can somewhat control which cards opponents draw, and she can outright control their combat choices too with Mistress’s Command. Even though she’s fair and balanced in the end, her wins feel like a fantasy when they are happening because she can be so domineering when she gets going.

Yomi Panda vs. G.Panda by Sirlin Games

This special 2-deck set of Yomi decks has the same minimalist graphic design style as Pandante. Panda’s deck is a new look for Lum’s deck. G.Panda (short for “Gambling Panda”) is a completely new deck based on the mechanics of Pandante. G.Panda can claim he has whatever cards he wants, and they count as real unless you challenge him!

Yomi EX Powerup by Sirlin Games

This expansion powers up all 20 Yomi decks, letting you play the EX version of every character. EX characters are overpowered, not tournament-legal, and not balanced, but they are tons of fun! Each character gets a new gold character card and 4 copies of an extra rank of face cards called Destiny cards. (Note: this product does not come with any full decks, just cards to modify the decks you already have.)

Extras
You also get an oversized Deathstrike Dragon character card. Use this with Menelker’s regular deck to power him up so much that he can play against two other players in a 2v1 match. You also get a premium knockdown token (to track which player is knocked down at any given time) that’s made of higher quality material than the ones that come in Yomi Round 1 or Round 2.

Perfect Storage Solution
This box is designed to store all 20 decks in an aesthetically pleasing way. A character select screen (like in a fighting game) inside the box shows you where to put each deck, to keep it organized. It also has slots for the premium knockdown token, as well as the life counter beads that come with Yomi Round 1 and Round 2, and has plenty of room for the life tracking boards and rulebook too.

I Spy by Lost Boys Productions

I, Spy is a game about of what led up to that day: a time when the great powers of Europe were stretching their limbs into the world of modern espionage –– fumbling to make sense of this new age, with its engines and telegraphs and airships. Empires that had been carved out and unified by ancient dynasties and held by force of arms now faced a world utterly changed –– where information was more important than steel, logistics more important than strength, and technology more important than numbers. History would no longer be a series of battles, but a tale of broken codes, political scandals, technological advancements, and covert missions of sabotage –– where a single intercepted telegram could determine the fate of an empire.

Pew Pew! by Victory Point Games
