A cooperative deck-building legacy game of post-apocalyptic fantasy survival, that also expands all previous Aeon’s End content.

  • The Reckoners from Nauvoo Games

  • Dice Throne from Roxley Game Laboratory

  • Viceroy: Times of Darkness Expansion from Mayday Games

This expansion for Viceroy supplies your pyramid of power with fastidious aristocrats and shady underworld figures.  You will earn precious diamonds and fend of invading monsters.  This expansion actually consists of three separate expansion modules all in one box, as well as revised law cards for the base game and new game modes for one and two players.

New Stuff

  • Coming April: Explorers of the North Sea:Rocks of Ruin from Renegade Game Studios

Rocks of Ruin adds new ways to play Explorers of the North Sea. Score with salvaging Shipwrecks, building Structures and raiding Fortresses.

  • Coming Soon: Lowlands from Z-Man Games

In Lowlands, you carve your farm out of this unforgiving land, gathering and spending resource cards to transform your farmyard into pastures that allow you to profit from breeding sheep. Adding expansions to your farm will unlock new options and score you victory points, but helping to build the dike that collectively protects all players is also rewarded. No matter what, the tide will rise and, if the dike isn’t high enough, it could rush in and sweep away your hard-earned profits. Will you sacrifice your own farm for the good of the community, or will you pursue your own agenda?

  • Announcing X-Wing Wave XIV from Fantasy Flight Games

Fantasy Flight Games announce the two expansion packs that make up Wave XIV for X-Wing – Saw’s Renegades Expansion Pack and TIE Reaper Expansion Pack.  With these two new expansion packs, you’re drawn directly into the breakneck starfighter conflicts of Rogue One and the beginning of the Galactic Civil War. You may fly with Saw and his partisans, willing to fight for freedom from the Empire at any cost. Or, you may join up with the Galactic Empire and ferry your elite troops into combat in a TIE reaper.

  • Announcing the Warrior Sourcebook for Force and Destiny from Fantasy Flight Games

Fantasy Flight Games announce Knights of Fate, a new sourcebook for Force and Destiny, focusing on the Warrior career and providing new specialization trees, species, gear, and narrative components to bolster the masters of battle in your campaigns.

  • Coming March: Dragon Ball Z:Perfect Cell from IDW Games

In Dragon Ball Z: Perfect Cell, 2 to 4 players will each take control of an iconic Dragon Ball Z fighter and roll their dice to generate energy. Using custom icons, players allocate their dice into performing attacks, helping other players, or buying upgrades. Players need to work together though, as Cell will continue to generate new threats that can heal him, damage all players, or lock players out of potentially game-changing upgrades.
