Merchants of the Dark Road Deluxe, The Night Cage, Streets Deluxe Rocketeer, New Unmatched and More!
Merchants of the Dark Road Deluxe Edition
After half a year of daylight, we must now prepare for the dark season. The roads will be treacherous but they will still need to be braved by a select few in order to keep our cities thriving. In Merchants of the Dark Road, you are one of these brave few merchants that travel the dangerous paths between cities. While the job is perilous, fame and fortune await.
Discover the capital city where most of your actions will take place using a rondel action system. Collect and produce items to add to your caravan, or sell these items to local heroes and hire them to travel with you. Manipulate the market price of items, visit the back alley sellers, or delve a nearby dungeon for magical items to gain the potential for even more coin and notoriety.
Gather lanterns to ease your passage along the dark roads as you guide your caravan to distant villages. Deliver goods and heroes to the best destinations and gain fame for your bravery! Balance the money you earn with the height of your fame because your final score after a number of game rounds will reflect the lowest of these two values.
After all, what good is a purse full of the coin if the people don’t sing songs about you, and what good is a song with an empty mug of ale?

Streets Deluxe Edition
The city was once a small and sleepy town, but the affordable properties have attracted artists, startup companies, and families. Celebrities and influencers are moving in, and after some recent archeological findings, the tourist industry is booming. Street by street, the city is transforming into a centre of culture and commerce.
Players are investors creating attractive new streets in the growing city, investing in new businesses and homes. Some streets will become hotspots for hipsters, others will be dominated by tourists or families with children. Others still will become designated shopping areas. Where will your Microbrewery profit the most? What is the best location for a Toy Store? What kind of environments are the other investors creating, and can you exploit their work for your own gain?
As each street is completed, the people on it will move to new buildings that interest them – hopefully one of your buildings in an up-and-coming street. Can you compete with the hype of your rivals and grow your following over time? To earn the most money and win the game you need to manage your limited investment funds cleverly, planning ahead while keeping your mind open to fresh opportunities.
Streets is a tile-laying game where players build a city together. Each building has a simple valuation formula which earns money for the owner when the street is scored. Valuations are affected by the other buildings in the street, so smart placement is essential to maximise profit. On top of this, the city is populated by hipsters, families, shoppers and tourists, each with their own preferred building type. Cleverly located properties can benefit from the growing crowds of people who further increase the value of the buildings they visit.
Optional expansion modules add powerful asymmetric player abilities, and extra layers of strategy & tough decisions.
Deluxe Edition Includes:
48 Screen Printed Full Color Wooden Meeples
25 Screen Printed Wooden Ownership Tokens
87 Screen Printed Wooden Money Tokens
All Unlocked Extras
The Night Cage
You awaken in the dark, your skin cold, your mind blank. You have nothing but your fear, a flickering candle, and a question: How long will your light last?
Trapped and crawling your way through a pitch-black labyrinth, equipped with nothing but dim candles, you must work together to explore the maze and escape. Unfortunately, your weak candlelight illuminates only your immediate surroundings. Worse still, horrifying Wax Eaters — monsters who despise the light — lurk in the suffocating darkness for their opportunity to strike.
The Night Cage is a fully co-operative, horror-themed tile-placement game that traps 1-5 lost souls within an unnatural labyrinth of eternal darkness. To win, players must each collect a key, find a gate, and escape as a group.
Escape won’t be easy as each player’s visibility is limited by the weak light of their candle. They illuminate only tiles directly connected to their own, and when players move, tiles that fall into darkness are removed from the game. Doubling back the way you came only opens new paths, the old ones being lost forever with critical keys and gates vanishing if your light move away from them…
Unmatched: Battle of Legends Volume 2 (Available on Thursday, 1/6)
In battle, there are no equals.
Unmatched is a highly asymmetrical miniature fighting game for two or four players. Each hero is represented by a unique deck designed to evoke their style and legend. Tactical movement and no-luck combat resolution create a unique play experience that rewards expertise, but just when you’ve mastered one set, new heroes arrive to provide all new match-ups.
Battle of Legends, Volume Two features four heroes: Yennenga, Achilles, Sun Wukong, and Bloody Mary.
Combat is resolved quickly by comparing attack and defense cards. However, each card’s unique effects and a simple but deep timing system lead to interesting decisions each time. The game also features an updated version of the line-of-sight system from Tannhäuser for ranged attacks and area effects.
The game includes a new battlefield with a brand new mechanism, pre-washed miniatures for each hero, and custom life trackers that’s brought to life with the stunning artwork of Zoe van Dijk and the combined design teams of Restoration Games and Mondo Games.
Rocketeer: Fate of the Future
Trouble is brewing high above the city of angels! The mysterious Rocketeer — who can blast through the skies with an ingenious jet-pack — must stop a sinister plot. Hollywood actor Neville Sinclair is scheming to steal the rocket’s blueprints as this breakthrough of modern engineering could revolutionize the future of flight. But in Sinclair’s hands, it could also fuel the dark future of warfare.
In the two-player game The Rocketeer: Fate of the Future, you play as either the heroes or the villains. On your turn, pick one of your characters and take an action with them, optionally playing cards from your hand that match that character’s symbol. Card actions are: Move, Tussle (combat), Gain Grit, Raise Rocket Token (heroes), Recruit a Soldier (villain). Players alternate turns until all six characters (three on each side) have taken actions and are exhausted, then players gain rewards based on control of the locations and prepare for a new round.
The end of the game happens when the Luxembourg Zeppelin reaches LA, after which you play the final round, then the game ends.
