Near and Far

Four wanderers search for the Last Ruin, a city that legends say contains an artifact that will grant the greatest desires of the heart. A lost love, redemption, acceptance, a family rejoined– these are the fires that fuel the wanderers’ journeys, but can they overcome their own greed and inner demons on the way?

In Near and Far, you and up to three friends explore many different maps in a search for the Last Ruin, recruiting adventurers, hunting for treasure, and competing to be the most storied traveler. You must collect food and equipment at town for long journeys to mysterious locales, making sure not to forget enough weapons to fight off bandits, living statues, and rusty robots! Sometimes in your travels you’ll run into something unique and one of your friends will read what happens to you from a book of stories, giving you a choice of how to react, creating a new and memorable tale each time you play.

Near and Far is a sequel to Above and Below and includes a book of encounters. This time players read over ten game sessions to reach the end of the story. Each chapter is played on a completely new map with unique art and adventures.

Answer the call of the ruins and begin your journey.

 

Arena For the Gods

Arena: For the Gods! has two phases. First, players use their life points to bid for the best equipment, mounts, and weapons. Second, they fight! When one player dies, the game ends, and whoever has the most life points left wins.

All cards in the game have a mythological theme, featuring some of the most famous members of various cultures’ myths and histories, such as Mjölnir, Osiris, and Quetzalcoatl.

Legendary: Marvel X-Men

The 13th expansion to the Legendary: A Marvel Deck Building Game puts the spotlight squarely on the X-Men. This set will bring to the game many of the X-Men characters that have been overlooked since the inception of the Legendary game.

This big box expansion has X-Men’s biggest heroes, including Psylocke and Banshee, battling their greatest foes. Even Beast makes a return as an all new X-Men team affiliated Hero!

This will be the biggest Legendary expansion to date with 394 cards of new Heroes, Masterminds, Villains, and Schemes straight from the X-Men comics!

Xia: Embers of a Forsaken Star

This is the first expansion for the game Xia: Legends of a Drift System.

In its meandering across the galaxy, the drift system of Xia has come into orbit with a dying star. Once habitable worlds now sit desolate waiting to be ransacked by opportunists, and an unknown cold fills the void. New dangers, hidden treasure, and adventure await in this abandoned system. Uncover the mystery in: Embers of a Forsaken Star.

This expansion adds:

  • New Sector tiles
  • New Mission cards
  • New Ships
  • A solo campaign
  • And much more!

Mistfall: Sand and Snow

Sand and Snow is an expansion that will enhance your Mistfall and Heart of the Mists experience with a set of 110 brand new cards, you can add to any of one of the sets, or use when you mix them.

What is Sand and Snow?

Let’s start with a new type of Enemy: the Lieutenant. Easily recognizable by lacking a Resolve value, a Lieutenant is an alternate version of an existing Enemy which, when eliminated, allows you to take a Reward card right out of the display. Most Enemies appearing in Mistfall and Heart of the Mists will see their Lieutenant version in the Sand and Snow expansion.

New opportunities to receive Reward cards call for (you guessed it!) more Rewards. And you will get a nice big cache of brand new General Rewards. I’ve noticed over the last year that many of Mistfall fans wanted more cool loot, and besides bringing some to the Heart of the Mists box, you can now get an even greater number of new weapons, armour and arcane items to use against the Mists.

Sand and Snow will also feature a few new Allies, and a set of Special Event cards, drawn at specific times during the game, becoming essentially more permanent versions of Encounters. If you can beat them within a few turns of the game, you might be rewarded for your effort, and if you decide to ignore them, they will come back to bite you!

 

51st State: Scavengers

In 51st State: Scavengers, nothing is lost forever — meaning that you can now search the discard for valuable locations and leverage them for use in your State.

51st State: Scavengers, the first expansion for 51st State: Master Set, is based on the previous 51st State expansion Ruins. This set of fifty cards brings back some favorite cards from the original expansion while introducing new locations to the game as well as a new mechanism.

 

Boss Monster: Implements of Destruction

The gloves are off and the gauntlets are on! Implements of Destruction is the first expansion since Tools of Hero-Kind to feature Items, which attach to Heroes but can be claimed by Bosses. This set features 5 new Bosses and 24 new Items. It’s playable with Boss Monster or Boss Monster 2, and it includes Explorer Items for your 5-6 player Crash Landing games!

 

Tyrants of the Underdark: Aberrations & Undead

The Aberrations dismiss all other creatures as lesser beings, toying with them or destroying them as they choose. The Undead heed the summons of Spellcasters who call them from their stony tombs and ancient battlefields, or rise of their own accord in places saturated with death and loss. Contains 2 40-card half decks to expand your options in Tyrants of the Underdark Board Game. Requires a copy of Tyrants of the Underdark Board Game to use.

Not Alone

It is the 25th century. You are a member of an intergalactic expedition shipwrecked on a mysterious planet named Artemia. While waiting for the rescue ship, you begin to explore the planet but an alien entity picks up your scent and begins to hunt you. You are NOT ALONE! Will you survive the dangers of Artemia?

NOT ALONE is an asymmetrical card game, in which one player (the Creature) plays against the stranded explorers (the Hunted).

If you play as one of the Hunted, you will explore Artemia using Place cards. By playing these and Survival cards, you try to avoid, confuse or distract the Creature until help arrives.

If you play as the Creature, you will stalk and pursue the shipwrecked survivors. By playing your Hunt cards and using the mysterious powers of Artemia, you try to wear down the Hunted and assimilate them to the planet forever.

NOT ALONE is a immersive, thematic card game, where you use guessing, bluffing, hand management, and just a pinch of deck-building to achieve your goal, which is survival for the Hunted… or total assimilation for the Creature!
