The Everrain is a cooperative story driven exploration game 1-4 players. The world is drowning beneath an endless deluge of rain as an ancient deity awakens to remake the world in its image, and players must head out into this dark and foreboding seascape to discover the source of the Everrain and prevent it from unmaking the world.

Players must work together to advance the player track around the board by finding ancient relics, exploring the map and launching expeditions ashore. But the enemy is also on this track, and should they advance quicker than the player then the game will become harder as the Old One stirs from it’s slumber.

In Welcome To… (second printing + new neighbourhood expansions) players compete to be named Best Suburb by giving the houses in their developments the best parks, pools, and curb appeal. The game supports 1 to 100 players out of the box and is perfect for any size playgroup, because everyone takes their turn at the same time!

Every round players select which house they want to build out of 3 available, writing their selected house onto their player sheet. They’ll then have the option of taking a bonus action, based on the house they picked. In addition to competing for the title of Best Suburb, they’ll also be racing to complete objectives set by the city. There’s multiple ways to score big in this game, and no two plays are the same.

Chronicles of Crime Ultimate Set is $139.99 and includes the Noir and Welcome to Redview expansions free with purchase (while supplies last).

Chronicles of Crime is a cooperative game of crime investigation, mixing an app, a board game and a touch of Virtual Reality. With the same physical components (board, locations, characters and items), players will be able to play plenty of different scenarios and solve as many different crime stories. Players start the app, choose the scenario they want to play, and follow the story. The goal being to catch the killer of the current case in the shortest short time possible.

Using the Scan&Play technology, each component (locations, characters, items, etc.) has a unique QR code, which, depending on the scenario selected, will activate and trigger different clues and stories. That means players will be able to get new stories way after the game is released simply by downloading the app’s updates, without any shipping of new physical components involved. The VR experience only requires a mobile phone. Players simply put the VR glasses (optional buy) onto their mobile device, and put the VR glasses on their nose, holding their mobile device in front of their eyes, to immerse themselves in the game’s universe and search for clues in a virtual world.

The game comes with 1 tutorial and 5 scenarios, but more can be downloaded directly inside the app! Each session last around 1h to 1h30 minutes and many scenarios are connected to each others in order to tell a much bigger story.

Subatomic is

Subatomic: An Atom Building Game ($46.99)is a deck-building game in which players compete to build a number of available elements, which score them points.

Each player starts with the same small deck of cards that consist of proton, neutron, and electron cards. They use these cards to build upon their current atom (by playing these cards face-up as subatomic particles) in an attempt to construct one of the available element cards. Alternatively, players may use their hand of cards to purchase more powerful cards for later use (by playing them in combinations of face-down cards as energy and face-up cards as subatomic particles). Subatomic introduces a unique variation on deck-building with a highly accurate chemistry theme, with the ultimate goal of building elements to score points, but allowing many varying types of strategies.
