Khora: Rise of an Empire (Available Now)
In Khôra: Rise of an Empire, you are the ruler of a resplendent city in Ancient Greece. It’s up to you to develop it faster and better than your opponents. You can make many political choices in each round, and philosophy, legislation, culture, trade, and military will shape the future of your city. Optimize your dice rolls, collect taxes, send your army to colonize foreign lands, unlock achievements, and make sure your city will shine throughout all of Greece!
Equinox (Releases on 9/17)
In Equinox, mysterious creatures gather in the forest in an effort to write themselves into the legendary storybook and for tales to be shared for countless generations. However, there is room for only four more stories — not every story will be recorded, so the creatures have to be cunning and clever to outwit their opponents and make the cut.
Equinox is a deeply satisfying betting game that gives players agency to influence the outcome of this competition. Each round, players place numbered power cards in front of the creatures, with the lowest-valued creature being eliminated from play. Players also place bets on which creatures they think will make it into the storybook, and you can use the special powers of these creatures to ideally turn things to your advantage.
Fans of Dr. Reiner Knizia might recognize Equinox as a revised edition of the previously released game Colossal Arena, but with two new creatures. Of the fourteen unique creatures, only eight are played in a game, which means more than three thousand different combinations are possible. To celebrate the equinox occurring twice a year, players can select from two distinct box covers, but note that the contents in each box are identical.
Marvel Champions: The Card Game – Nebula Hero Pack (Releases on 9/17)
“The Guardians were wise to fear me, and even smarter to hire me on.” – Nebula
Created by Thanos to be the perfect killing machine, Nebula broke free from her tyrannical father to become a feared space-pirate. But when the Mad Titan threatened all life in the universe, she joined forces with the Guardians of the Galaxy to stop him. Though she may have a checkered past, Nebula is ready to prove that she can be a hero too.
As a sometimes-friend, sometimes-enemy of the Guardians of the Galaxy, Nebula blitzes into action in this expansion pack, which introduces her as a brand-new playable hero, along with her fifteen signature cards. With a pre-built Justice deck ready to go, you’ll be ready to try out Nebula’s technical gameplay from the moment you open the box. With a versatile range of abilities and the potential for some powerful combos, Nebula is a dangerous hero that should never be underestimated!

Legendary: A Marvel Deck Building Game – Annihilation
A dark new threat has arrived with this Legendary expansion.

In defense of the universe, you might see former foes such as Fantastic Four team up with Galactus and his Heralds! It’s time for all to stand side by side against the incoming wave of destruction – stand together, or fall apart.
Mind MGMT: The Psychic Espionage “Game”
Working from the shadows, Mind MGMT once used its psychically-powered agents to put a stop to global crises. However, absolute power corrupts absolutely, and Mind MGMT is now rotting from the inside. To tighten its iron grip on the world stage, Mind MGMT deploys covert operatives around the world to recruit other psychically-attuned individuals to their side. How can this enigmatic organization, hell bent on global domination, be defeated?
Thankfully, a few renegade agents have figured out that Mind MGMT has been compromised and have defected, turning their backs on the syndicate. They now use their own psychic abilities to prevent Mind MGMT from achieving its nefarious goals.
In Mind MGMT: The Psychic Espionage “Game.”, one player controls Mind MGMT and must scour the city for new recruits. They move around on a secret map, trying to visit locations that match one of their three randomly drawn feature cards. They can also use their four Immortals to protect locations from being exposed.
All other players control the rogue agents who must try to stop Mind MGMT before it’s too late! They ask questions to the Recruiter and deduce their whereabouts from the answers they receive. Rogue agents can use dry-erase “mental notes” to track all the information they’re given.
Mind MGMT wins by either collecting twelve recruits or surviving sixteen turns. The rogue agents can win only be capturing Mind MGMT, which they do when they believe they’re on the same block as Mind MGMT.
Oath: Chronicles of Empire and Exile
In Oath, one to six players guide the course of history in an ancient land. Players might take the role of agents bolstering the old order or scheme to bring the kingdom to ruin. The consequences of one game will ripple through those that follow, changing what resources and actions future players may have at their disposal and even altering the game’s core victory condition.
If a player seizes control by courting anarchy and distrust, future players will have to contend with a land overrun by thieves and petty warlords. In a later game, a warlord might attempt to found a dynasty, creating a line of rulers that might last generations or be crushed by the rise of a terrible, arcane cult.
In Oath, there are no fancy production tricks, app-assisted mechanisms or production gimmicks. The game can be reset at any time and doesn’t require the same play group from one game to the next. A player might use the fully-featured solo mode to play several generations during the week and then use that same copy of the game for Saturday game-night with friends. There are no scripted narratives or predetermined end points. The history embedded in each copy of Oath will grow to be as unique as the players who helped build it.
Bring balance back to the forest!
Time is broken and shattered. The seasons all exist at once, and day and night have no real cycle — they rotate at the whim of the forest. This enchanted land has been driven into chaos and it’s up to you, the cunning mystics of the forest, to tame extraordinary woodland creatures and use your magic to bring back balance.
In Brew, players must choose how to use element dice, either to take back control of as many seasons as possible in an area-control game or to procure goods at the local village in a worker-placement game. Recruiting woodland creatures and brewing potions can help offset chance die-rolls or create an engine to help you tame the lands.
Our ancient ancestors created images on the walls of caves to tell stories about the world around them and the animals they shared it with — and perhaps they, like you, played games to make those stories come to life…

The Necromancer leads an undead army toward the stronghold walls. A powerful artifact lies within the stronghold. A magical item imbued with immense energy. The Necromancer’s powers are weakening, and his magical essence is fading with each passing moment. He will regain his powers if he manages to take the castle by storm and claim the artifact. Thus, if the undead army succeeds in breaching the stronghold within eight turns, it will capture the artifact and attain victory. If not…well, if not, the Necromancer’s powers will fade completely and the undead army will turn to dust.

Add extra challenges with new mutation cards!

Fast & Furious: Highway Heist
Get ready for an exciting new mission based on the blockbuster movie series, playing as Dom, Brian, Letty, Roman, and the rest of Team Toretto on a harrowing high-speed heist! Go up against heavily-armed enemies with your hot cars, daring driving, and jaw-dropping vehicle-to-vehicle leaps of faith. Whether you are taking down a swerving semi filled with valuable cargo, stopping a rampaging tank in its tracks, or bringing down a high-tech helicopter as it rains fire from the skies, you’ll have to work together to take advantage of every team member’s strengths.
Each of the three scenarios is different and impacts how you and your high-stakes seeking team will strategize to win!
On players’ turns, they will move, leap from vehicle to vehicle, fight back enemies, and pull off crazy stunts (that also act as the timer for the game – run out of stunts to do and you lose the scenario). You’ll accomplish this by passing dice skill checks which your variable player powers and vehicles’ stats will impact. Each scenario has a different objective you must complete to win, so get ready to work with your own Fast Family – it’s up to you to pull off the job no other crew can do!
