JAWS THE BOARD GAME

In JAWS, one player takes on the role of the killer shark off Amity Island, while the other 1-3 players take on the roles of Brody, Hooper and Quint to hunt the shark. Character and event cards define player abilities and create game actions for humans and the shark. Gameplay is divided into two acts — Amity Island and The Orca — played on a double-sided board to replicate the film’s story:

-In the Amity Island phase, the shark menaces swimmers and avoids capture. Other players attempt to pinpoint the shark’s location and save swimmers from shark attacks.

-In the Orca phase, played on the reverse side of the game board, Brody, Hooper and Quint are aboard the sinking ship engaging in a climactic battle against the shark, while using additional action and strategy cards to defend the Orca from targeted shark attacks.

If humans kill the shark, they win; if the shark attack on the Orca succeeds, the great white shark wins.

 

 


JURASSIC PARK DANGER

“Hold onto your butts!” This Jurassic Park light strategy game, set in the chaotic scene of Isla Nublar, will take you on the adventure of your life! One player controls the T. rex, Dilophosaurus, and Velociraptor, prowling through the jungle to attack the humans. The remaining players work as the team of iconic characters from the classic Jurassic Park? film to fight against the player controlling the dinosaurs. When a Human Character is defeated by the Dinosaurs, they can immediately reanimate as a brand new character. But be careful, if the Dinosaurs defeat three Human Characters, the Dinosaurs win. If the players controlling the Human Characters manage to get three Characters off the island to safety, those players win!

$1 OFF THE PLOT #1


Wednesday, September 25th through Tuesday, October 1st

COMICS OMNIVORE PROGRAM!

com·ics om·ni·vore
[kom-iks om-nuh-vohr]
noun
A person who consumes all manner of comics, regardless of publisher, age, genre, or format, with the only requirement being quality.

COMICS OMNIVORE is a new national program aimed at growing the readership of quality comics!
Publishers may submit a title to the Comics Omnivore Panel for consideration. There are a few things they require of any individual title, but the first and foremost has to be quality! The Comics Omnivore panel is looking for books that might slip a little below the radar, or something that they think can be grown with a more focused initiative.

Here’s what this means for YOU:
GET $1 OFF DURING THE FIRST WEEK OF RELEASE!
Offer valid from September 25th through October 1st!
(Price will be automatically reduced at the register; does not combine with any other discounts)

PLOT #1
VAULT COMICS
(W) Michael Moreci, Tim Daniel (A/CA) Josh Hixson
In order to receive… First you must give. When Chase Blaine’s estranged brother and sister-in-law are murdered, he becomes guardian to McKenzie and Zach, the niece and nephew he hardly knows. Seeking stability for the children, Chase moves his newly formed family to his ancestral home in Cape Augusta… which overlooks a deep, black bogland teeming with family secrets.

Why It’s Cool: “For some, family can be a real source of horror. Family can be a horror that kills. The Plot, from Tim Daniel, Michael Moreci, and Josh Hixson, make that horror all too solid, too physical. Set in 1974, The Plot reminds me a bit of the noir works of Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips if you strip the noir away and suffuse the entire affair in gloom and dread. Bad things are in store for the Blaine family and I’m excited to be along for the ride.”
-Edward Uvanni, Comics Omnivore Director

SOMETHING IS KILLING CHILDREN #1
BOOM! STUDIOS
(W) James TynionIV (A/CA) Werther Dell’Edera
GLAAD Award-winning writer James Tynion IV (Memetic, Batman: Detective Comics) teams with artist Werther Dell’Edera (Briggs Land) for an all-new limited series about staring into the abyss to find your worst fears staring back.
When the children of Archer’s Peak begin to go missing, everything seems hopeless. Most children never return, but the ones that do have terrible stories-impossible stories of terrifying creatures that live in the shadows.
Their only hope of finding and eliminating the threat is the arrival of a mysterious stranger, one who believes the children and claims to see what they can see.
Her name is Erica Slaughter. She kills monsters. That is all she does, and she bears the cost because it MUST be done

Why It’s Cool: “Like a lot of good horror, Something Is Killing the Children starts slow. We see the aftermath long before we see the carnage. We see the effect that this horror is having not only on the individuals involved, but the whole community. And when, as the title promises, we finally see the killing of the children: it hits. Something is Killing the Children makes the most of it’s DNA. A little Hellboy here. A little Twin Peaks there. Imagine if Stranger Things was stripped of its bubblegum nostalgia and all that was left was bleak swathes of grey and plenty of blood. I’m sure there’ll be plenty more killing, and plenty more blood, before this series wraps.”
-Edward Uvanni, Comics Omnivore Director

POWER RANGERS: HEROES OF THE GRID (3 EXPANSION ALSO AVAILABLE)

Power Rangers: Heroes of the Grid gives each player the chance to take the role of a Power Ranger, the heroes of Angel Grove who defend the earth against the evil Rita Repulsa and her nefarious minions. Each Ranger comes with a unique combat deck representing their special skills and fighting style. From the Red Ranger’s leadership karate skills, to the Yellow Ranger’s Sabertooth ferocity, to the Blue Ranger’s tactical mind, each ranger brings a unique set of skills to the table. You need to use your powers well if you intend to save Angel Grove!

In each game, you need to protect four combat zones that are being targeted by the evil Rita Repulsa. Each round, enemy forces deploy onto these zones and cause chaos among the populace. Who knows what sort of strange monsters Rita has cooked up for the Rangers this time?

During play, Rangers must manage their actions and coordinate their defenses, moving to the locations under the most threat and doing battle with enemies. Finding time to rest and recover between engagements as they prepare to defeat the mastermind behind this plot.

During battle, each Ranger and each enemy in the location participate in the combat sequence. Enemy cards represent enemy actions and health. Rangers can attack these cards to disrupt their attacks. Each minion card the rangers defeat removes one minion figure from that location. Monsters are much deadlier foes with a variety of special attacks that you’ll need to deal with and defeat before you send them packing! A Ranger’s combat deck represents their health, with each card played and blow sustained slowly whittling away at their options. They’ll need to find time to rest or power-up at the Command Center if they want to stay fresh for the next fight!

As the Rangers defeat enemies and progress through the game, they’ll unlock Zord cards which provide them unique abilities and special actions they can perform. Eventually they’ll be able to unleash the full power of the mighty Megazord!

Each game reaches its climax with a confrontation with the enemy Master, a devastatingly powerful foe who must be thwarted if the Rangers wish to save the city! Do you have what it takes?

 

 


DEAD MAN’S CABAL

You’ve conquered death and mastered all nine dimensions of space-time. Reality bends to your every whim and desire. You are the absolute best there ever has been, a necromancer at the top of their game. The only downside is that no one likes you on account of the creeping around with dead bodies and the lack of sunlight. But who needs friends when you can make them?

Dead Man’s Cabal is a mid-weight strategy game from Daniel Newman, with game development from Jonathan Gilmour (Dead of Winter, Dinosaur Island). In the game, 2-4 players compete to bring the dead back to life so that they can throw a party with actual, you know, guests.

The gameplay is a clever interplay of a unique action selection mechanism that allows players to choose both a private action followed by a group action, requiring tense decision-making on the timing of the different phases of the game. Collect bodies, crystal skulls, and runes, then bring the dead back to life. This might sound simple enough, but triggering the actions in just the right order requires careful planning to make sure you aren’t helping your competitors more than yourself.

8/3 – ATELIER

Take on the role of an artist managing an atelier, or art studio, during the 19th century. Roll dice, manage your assistants, collect needed paint, and complete famous works of art. Will you be a prolific artist completing many works for your patrons, or will you be known for just a few masterpieces that stand the test of time?

Atelier: The Painter’s Studio is played in rounds. During each round, players take turns using one or more of their dice to accomplish tasks. Turns proceed clockwise around the table until all players have used all four of their dice. Once the round is over, all players recover their dice, pass the starting player token clockwise, and start the next round. Players use their dice to collect students, paint colors, and ultimately complete paintings. The completed paintings contribute to their studio’s reputation, which will in turn open up additional actions that can be taken.

When any player has completed their third painting with the masterpiece symbol, the game enters the final round. Players then total the victory points from their paintings, patrons, and “First Master” token to determine the winner.

 

 


8/7 – CHOCOLATIERS

In Chocolatiers, you take on the role of a young chocolatier boxing up chocolates to make a decadent chocolate display! Sharing is caring in the world of chocolates, so while you’ll draw three chocolates into your hand, you get to keep only one!

Once you have your chocolates, discard them to claim box tiles for your display. Each box tile rewards you with victory points. When boxing chocolates, make sure to select boxes that will fit well in your display as you’ll get bonus points for getting the majority of connected chocolate-types. Can’t quite make the right connection for majority? That’s okay, because as a chocolatier you have the special ability to craft a WILD chocolate that matches with all adjacent chocolate-types.

The player with the most points wins the game! Do you have what it takes to become the next world-famous chocolatier?

BASKETFUL OF HEADS #1
DC COMICS
(W) Joe Hill (A) Leomacs (CA) Reiko Murakami
The rain lashes the grassy dunes of Brody Island, and seagulls scream above the bay. A slender figure in a raincoat carries a large wicker basket, which looks like it might be full of melons… covered by a bloodstained scrap of the American flag.
This is the story of June Branch, a young woman trapped with four cunning criminals who have snatched her boyfriend for deranged reasons of their own. Now she must fight for her life with the help of an impossible 8th-century Viking axe that can pass through a man’s neck in a single swipe-and leave the severed head still conscious and capable of supernatural speech.
Each disembodied head has a malevolent story of its own to tell, and it isn’t long before June finds herself in a desperate struggle to hack through their lies and manipulations… racing to save the man she loves before time runs out.
Plus, in the premiere chapter of the backup story “Sea Dogs,” which sails across all the Hill House Comics titles!

Black Canary’s life has spiraled out of control: her personal life is going through the ringer and her band is in crisis when an old flame resurfaces only to flicker out and set her on an all-new mission against an all-new opponent. The only thing she can be grateful for is the fact that she’s not alone, as Huntress finds herself on a collision course with Black Canary’s quarry at Detective Montoya’s urging. Meanwhile, Harley Quinn has resurfaced outside of Gotham City and out of the Suicide Squad, with a new lease on life that is sure to make everyone else’s life more complicated. And that’s only the first five pages.
Needless to say, the Birds are back in town! With more pressure and higher stakes than they have ever faced before, brought to you by hard-boiled superstar writer Brian Azzarello and the bombshell art team of Emanuela Lupacchino and Ray McCarthy.
