Red Dragon Inn: Allies: Adonis vs. The Lich King
$24.95 SRP

A new good guy and a new bad guy join the party!

The Magnificent Adonis, Bard of the Ages:
This bard’s pretentious title - self-given, of course - makes him the envy of other bards... Okay, not really, but he can carry a tune and he’s good in a fight. He uses his three preferred instruments, the flute, the lyre and the drum, to cast bardic magic or just bash bad guys over the head!

The Good: Adonis is a fine specimen of a man.
The Bad: ... and he won’t let you forget it!

The Lich King:
Look over there! It’s the Lich King! This ancient skeletal mage has transferred part of his essence and power to his severed hand, making him highly resistant to attack by the good guys. But even this near-immortal embodiment of evil enjoys a pint at the tavern once in a while!

The Bad: Good luck getting past his formidable defenses.
The Worse: He knows how to "throw a punch". Literally.

The Red Dragon Inn: Allies – Adonis vs. The Lich King expands the party at the Red Dragon Inn with a new hero and a new villain. These archenemies bring new mechanics and fun to the party, and can be combined with any Red Dragon Inn base set. The Lich King includes a side deck allowing him to be played as a boss in the Boss Battle variant introduced in The Red Dragon Inn 6: Villains. As an added bonus, this set includes custom Player Mats and Deck Dividers that are compatible with The Red Dragon Inn 5: The Character Trove!

Noria and Indian Summer! New Releases from Stronghold Games!

Order by Date: December 15, 2017
Release Date: January 2018



SG8031
Noria
$79.95 SRP 

A new era is looming on the horizon. The future of Noria is right in front of you, and you must guide your flourishing trading empire into prosperity. Discover flying islands, buy ships, and build factories. Invest in prestigious projects, and secure their success by passing on secret knowledge to politicians. For even above the clouds, there is still room for improvement...

Noria is the debut title from Sophia Wagner, winner of the Spiel des Jahres fellowship in 2015. This talented, young female designer has created an entirely new Steampunk/Sci-Fi universe specifically for this game, and artists Michael Menzel and Klemens Franz have managed to bring her vision to life.

At the center of the game is an innovative mechanism called "Wheel Building". Each player has an action wheel consisting of three rings, with slots for a number of different action discs. Over the course of the game, players try to obtain new discs and manipulate the rings of the wheel to optimize their action selection. Additionally, to ensure their investments bear fruit, they also need to bribe politicians with knowledge.

Indian Summer

$59.95 SRP

Before winter makes its appearance, a particularly warm fall bathes the forest in a golden shimmer. During the Indian Summer, New England blossoms one last time. Treetops are ablaze with countless colors — a living rainbow, from green to orange to red. Slowly the first leaves are starting to fall. Meanwhile, our steps and the diligent squirrels rustle the colorful foliage.

On our walks through the woods, we discover all kinds of little treasures; we collect berries, nuts, mushrooms and feathers. We pause for a moment to watch the shy inhabitants of the forest before we set off towards home once again. There, a good book and a hot tea are already awaiting.

The heart of Indian Summer are puzzle tiles with holes that are placed on individual forest boards to cover up treasures. When players get their hands on these, they gain more options and an edge over their opponents. All that counts in the end is to be the first to cover your forest floor completely with leaves.

Indian Summer is the second part of Uwe Rosenberg's puzzle trilogy following 2016's smash hit game, Cottage Garden. This game is further geared towards more experienced players.

Dark Souls - The Card Game

$50.00 SRP

Dark Souls™ : The Card Game is a cooperative deck evolution card game for 1-4 players. Players must explore the Encounters around them, defeating a myriad of enemies to gain Souls and Treasure.

They must use these to evolve and adapt their deck to better fight their enemies. When the players are ready, they must challenge the powerful bosses that lie within.

Players must walk a narrow path as their decks allow them to attack their enemies, but also represent their health.

Decks are only refreshed when the players rest at the bonfire, so players must defeat their enemies while husbanding their strength for the greater challenges ahead. Thinking quickly and adapting to the enemy's attacks is key for survival.

As you adventure through the Encounters you will be progressing towards the final Boss Battle. In the core game there are 4 Bosses:

Vordt of the Boreal Valley
Abyss Watcher
Pontiff Sulyvahn
High Lord Wolnir

Each with their own deck of 8 devastating attacks, you will need skill and strategy to survive.

New Releases from Cryptozoic Games! Walking Dead: No Sanctuary!

Order by Date: December 15, 2017 
Release Date: January 2018


CTZ02095
Walking Dead: No Sanctuary Base Game
$80.00 SRP

The Walking Dead: No Sanctuary—designed by the award-winning team of Adam and Brady Sadler—is the game fans of The Walking Dead have been waiting for! Cryptozoic is proud to introduce this intense new 1-4 board game based on the hit AMC TV show. The game redefines the survival horror genre with gameplay that emulates the group dynamics from the series, as one player takes on the reins of Leadership and the other players can decide whether or not to support his or her choices. With stunningly detailed miniatures, get ready to play as your favorite characters: Rick Grimes, Glenn Rhee, Andrea Harrison, Merle Dixon, Shane Walsh, Theodore "T-Dog" Douglas, and—of course—Daryl Dixon.

This isn't your typical survival horror game in which you attempt to eliminate each other and take out as many of the undead as possible. In The Walking Dead: No Sanctuary, you have to work together to win. One player becomes the Leader and tries to get the others to follow his or her Approach. If the other players defy their Leader, Trust falters and Stress builds. This can result in a new Leader taking over and in Group Tension, which can reduce Morale. If Group Morale hits zero, you all lose. Likewise, if one of the survivors dies, the entire team loses. In other words, you better find a way to work as a team!
