Mistfall Valskyrr Campaign System by Passport Game Systems

Valskyrr expands Mistfall with a campaign system in different ways. Some of the features can also be used in the classic game variant.

  • Legacy Feats: A new deck of special Feats that can be purchased by any Hero. Use these abilities to sharpen your keen edge or supply your Hero with a little bit of what is not usually their forte.
  • Setting Cards: As your Hero Develops, so do the Mists. The expansion pack comes with a small deck of cards that will randomize ways in which each subsequent Quest will become harder, as the relentless Mists, aware of your presence, will push back, trying to stop your advance.
  • Elite Enemies: The Valskyrr will also come with an alternative version of one type of Enemy from each of the three groups (Wildlanders, Borderlanders and Undead). When introduced by a Setting, these will succeed the Regular Enemies in their respective decks, making the most basic footman of your Enemy a greater challenge to face.
  • Epic Villains: Just like the Regular Enemies, some of the biggest and baddest evildoers will receive an upgrade. The expansion will provide you with a final battle that will truly feel like a worthy conclusion to an epic tale.

The Big Book of Madness by iello

The Big Book of Madness is a co-operative deck-building game in which the players are magic students who must act as a team to turn all the pages of the book, then shut it by defeating the terrible monsters they’ve just freed.

Each player has their own element deck that they build during the game and use for several purposes, such as learning or casting a spell, adding a new element to their deck, destroy or healing a curse. Spells allow you to support your playmates, improve your deck, draw cards, etc. — but the monsters from the book fight back. Each comes with terrible curses that are triggered every turn unless you dispel them in time. They will make you discard elements, add madness cards to your deck, or lose spells…

If you manage to turn six pages and defeat all of the monsters, you win the game!

Antartica by Argentum Verlag

In a distant time-so far in the future that either due to global warming or technological progress wind turbines are going swimmingly in Antarctic climate-sea level rise and resource consumption force mankind to invest heavily in polar research. The Scientific Committee of Antarctic Research is faced with an increasingly creative interpretation of the Antarctic Treaty System.

Your objective is to build research centers in Antarctica and to mine resources-for research purposes only, of course. The sun moves counter-clockwise above Antarctica, thawing ships which can be used for scientific progress. At the end of the game, you will receive victory points for all sorts of majorities. Will your team be the one that gained the greatest fortune … um, contributed the most to rescue mankind?

More Kittens in a Blender by Redshift Games

Kittens In A Blender is an irreverent card game in which adorable, curious little kittens wander through an unsafe kitchen and sometimes end up where they shouldn’t. There are sixty-four unique kittens, divided into four groups. Each group of kittens displays a different background color to tell them apart.

Players attempt to rescue their group kittens, moving them safely into the warm, happy cardboard box. But there is only so much room, so at times it is necessary to move other kittens away from the box. Kittens travel between the cardboard box, the counter, and, yes, the blender.
