This Week’s New Game Spotlights for 11/11/15!

 Magic the Gathering 2015 Commander Decks hit this Friday 11/13/15!

We’ll have plenty of these in stock and available at only $34.99 per deck – make sure you snag your’s quick tho, because they usually fly out pretty fast!

 

 


The Cake is NOT a lie in the new PORTAL: Uncooperative Cake Acquisition Game!

We love PORTAL. We love board games. Put the two together, and you got us!

With a grinding of gears and some uneasy rumbling, Aperture Laboratories has resumed testing! Your team of Test Subjects have entered the Lab and are ready to perform all sorts of important, dignified, and dangerous testing procedures… all in the pursuit of Cake! It’s a fun and funny fast-paced fight to the finish. And by finish, we mean your team probably died.

The Lab is an ever-changing conveyor belt of death and dismemberment. But SCIENCTIFIC PROGRESS must be at the forefront of the mind of every good Test Subject. In this game of constantly shifting area control and cardplay, players move and Portal their Test Subjects to various Chambers in the Lab. At the end of each player’s turn, one of the Chambers on the end of the Lab gives way, plunging all Test Subjects on it into oblivion. But should your Test Subjects have numbered greater than all others in the falling Chamber, they earn you some wonderful parting gifts, which can include Cake.

Yet, these moist slices of industrial-grade Cake must be stored in the Lab, where they are at risk of falling into said oblivion. Not to mention that your jealous opponents can pick up your Cake and move it closer to that precipice. He who has acquired the most Cake when a team has lost its last Test Subject is the winner. Do you risk gathering Cake early for a quick win? Or do you bide your time and wait until you can protect it better? Win the game and prove the Cake was no lie.


Fluxx returns with a brand new spin in NATURE FLUXX this week!

 

Oh man, we LOVE Fluxx, and we are totally pumped to see the next evolution of ECOFLUXX arrive with NATURE FLUXX!

It all begins with one basic rule: Draw one card, Play one card. You start with a hand of three cards… add the card you drew to your hand, and then choose one card to play, following the directions written on your chosen card. As cards are drawn and played from the deck, the rules of the game change from how many cards are drawn, played or even how many cards you can hold at the end of your turn.

Full of plants and elements and things that-eat-other-things, Nature Fluxx will remind and teach everyone about the wonders of nature (all while playing an all-natural game of Fluxx)!


Fluxx returns with a brand new spin in NATURE FLUXX this week!

 

There’s some cool games coming out this week, but SHADOWS OVER THE EMPIRE really caught our eye!

In SOTE, the King is dead! Cardis has fallen.
After a long siege, the empire of Asmidan has conquered Cardis and the Conclave of Law has been sent by the Emperor to establish the new rule. The city is in disarray and several factions struggle for power behind the scenes. The former Queen is using her influence to gather allies in an effort
to help her son claim the throne. The Order of the Coin, a group of wealthy individuals, wants to rise to power ensuring the gold keeps flowing.

The Asmidan’s Church desires to seize control of the newly conquered city by using the feared Inquisition to sway whoever opposes it.

In Shadows over the Empire players take the role of leaders of four factions in a struggle for control of Cardis. They must influence various personalities and have them do their bidding. Loyalties are constantly changing and great allies become mortal enemies in a city filled with desire for dominion. Who will prevail?
