New arrivals for Monday June 22nd, 2015

Another warm day here in Calgary but only a few new titles to tempt you from the warm embrace of the sun and into the cool environs of The Sentry Box

Dominion Guilds & Cornucopia by Rio Grande Games

Apparently it is the Guilds expansion and the Cornucopia expansion in the same box. With added errata. This description, while brief, is longer than the one on the Rio Grande website.

Flapjacks & Sasquatches by Prolific Games

Take off to the Great White North where you will use your axe and your wits to get ahead of fellow lumberjacks.

You may get a boost from some Flapjacks or be slowed by Blisters, but always be wary of the dreaded Sasquatch!

If you can chop your way to the top, you will be named the Iron Jack!

Nevermore by Smirk & Dagger

Is it bird – or something more, forced to walk the earth in darkness evermore? You may yet learn the answer first hand. For in Nevermore, those who fall become transformed, turned to ravens, unable to win, as they struggle to regain their human form – yet able to bring doom to others. Will you rise to power or simply be Nevermore?

Nevermore is a casual-style, card-drafting game in which you quickly build your hand each round, collecting cards you want and poisoning your opponent’s hand by passing along cards you think they can’t use. Whoever holds the most of a given suit, gains the power of that suit to attack, heal, acquire Light or Shadow magicks and score victory points.

Player ‘transformation’ replaces player elimination, keeping everyone in the game until the last moment, yet still rewards players who have performed better during the game. Will you transform all your rivals into ravens — or can they regain their human form in time to score enough victory to win?
