SamuraiSpirit
SAMURAI SPIRIT
You and your fellow samurai companions are the only standing obstacle between one frightened village and a full horde of blood-thirsty villains. The fight seems unfair as the seven of you might not seem to measure up to the dozens of enemies who want to slice you to pieces — but this comparison doesn’t take into account your strong combat skills and an efficient team spirit that binds your samurai squad enough to face the threat. Above all else, when everything seems desperate and lost, your enemies will discover that inside each of you lies a true beast, a warrior spirit ready to unleash its full power!
Samurai Spirit is a co-operative game in which each player is a fierce samurai defending a village surrounded by a horde of bandits. The game plays out over three turns during which each player takes turns drawing bandit cards, then choosing whether they want to fight the bandit, defend the village, or let the bandit pass in order to help the other samurai.
The challenge of the game consists of balancing your choices: Should you fight each enemy to quickly reach your beast capacities, while also coming closer to the death and risking further loss by not defending the village sufficiently? Should you mainly defend or help the other samurai, taking the risk of remaining human too long and therefore weaker, when you know that weakness will be a major problem when facing the lieutenant and the villain bosses? Each enemy presents a tough choice to you, your team, and ultimately the whole village! Each turn ends with farms and fences being destroyed, and since those aren’t unlimited, you must do what’s necessary to end the game with at least one undamaged farm and enough farmers to tend it. Do you have what it takes to stand against evil and become a true hero?
Fight with courage, smartly assist your teammates, defend the poor villagers, turn into a savage beast, and wreak havoc on the enemy lines — all of this is up to you! Ultimately it would be your honor to chose to die in a ultimate sacrifice in order to save the village. All of this is what makes the true samurai spirit!

StarWarsImperialAssault
STAR WARS: IMPERIAL ASSAULT
Star Wars: Imperial Assault is a strategy board game of tactical combat and missions for two to five players, offering two distinct games of battle and adventure in the Star Wars universe!
Imperial Assault puts you in the midst of the Galactic Civil War between the Rebel Alliance and the Galactic Empire after the destruction of the Death Star over Yavin 4. In this game, you and your friends can participate in two separate games. The campaign game pits the limitless troops and resources of the Galactic Empire against a crack team of elite Rebel operatives as they strive to break the Empire’s hold on the galaxy, while the skirmish game invites you and a friend to muster strike teams and battle head-to-head over conflicting objectives.
In the campaign game, Imperial Assault invites you to play through a cinematic tale set in the Star Wars universe. One player commands the seemingly limitless armies of the Galactic Empire, threatening to extinguish the flame of the Rebellion forever. Up to four other players become heroes of the Rebel Alliance, engaging in covert operations to undermine the Empire’s schemes. Over the course of the campaign, both the Imperial player and the Rebel heroes gain new experience and skills, allowing characters to evolve as the story unfolds.
Imperial Assault offers a different game experience in the skirmish game. In skirmish missions, you and a friend compete in head-to-head, tactical combat. You’ll gather your own strike force of Imperials, Rebels, and Mercenaries and build a deck of command cards to gain an unexpected advantage in the heat of battle. Whether you recover lost holocrons or battle to defeat a raiding party, you’ll find danger and tactical choices in every skirmish.
As an additional benefit, the Luke Skywalker Ally Pack and the Darth Vader Villain Pack are included within the Imperial Assault Core Set. These figure packs offer sculpted plastic figures alongside additional campaign and skirmish missions that highlight both Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader within Imperial Assault. With these Imperial Assault Figure Packs, you’ll find even more missions that allow your heroes to fight alongside these iconic characters from the Star Wars saga.

SmallWorldRoyalBonus
SMALL WORLD: ROYAL BONUS
Small World: Royal Bonus is a mini-expansion for Small World that contains three Races (Fauns, Igors and Shrubmen) and three Special Powers (Aquatic, Behemoth and Fireball). Royal Bonus was first released only to Kickstarter backers of the digital version of Small World.

RESISTHIDDEN
THE RESISTANCE: HIDDEN AGENDA
Hidden Agenda is an expansion to The Resistance that consists of three different modules:
Assassin Module: Ever since we announced The Resistance: Avalon the request has been to take the exciting new roles from Avalon and make them available for The Resistance. We are very excited to now make that available – the Assassin module of Hidden Agenda contains all the Avalon roles, rethemed and renamed to fit into The Resistance Universe.
Defector Module: Two variants in one, the Defectors were included as part of the Avalon promos. In one variant, the Defectors can switch allegiance during the game – ensuring that players are never quite certain who to trust. In the second variant version the two Defectors know each other – ensuring that the accusations of deceit begin from the very opening of the game.
Trapper Module: Every proposed Mission Team includes an extra person that won’t go on the mission. The leader will isolate a team member and watch their every move – making sure they can’t make the mission fail. If you are a spy on the Mission Team, you’ll never know if you will cause a mission to fail or simply be giving your identity away. But resistance members will have to approve some missions knowing that a spy is on them and trust that the leader chooses to isolate the spy.

RESISTHOSTILE
THE RESISTANCE: HOSTILE INTENT
Hostile Intent is an expansion to The Resistance consisting of three modules.
Hunter Module: The battle between resistance and imperial has become more intense. It is no longer enough to target facilities in missions – the target has become personal as both sides look to neutralize their opponent’s leaders. In this module both the resistance and spies must identify a specific individual among the opposing team to win. Hunters introduces many new game concepts that bring a whole new level of deduction and deceit into The Resistance.
Reverser Module: Reversers have the ability to change the results of any mission – in the hands of the resistance this can make a doomed mission succeed, or turn certain victory into defeat. A very interesting and potentially chaotic twist that is certain to change your meta game forever.
Inquisitor Module: The Inquisitor is an optional player ability first seen in Avalon. The player with the Inquisitor will be able to look at the affiliation of another player and is a simple way to ensure every game is full of interest twists and turns as the Inquisitor uncovers the truth (at least their version of the truth).

The Eternal Warrior has protected the Earth for more than 10,000 years. A master of countless weapons and long forgotten martial arts, he is guided by the Geomancers – those who speak for the Earth. During his long watch, the Eternal Warrior has failed three times. Each time, the Geomancer was killed…and a new dark age for humanity began. Each time, he was unable to stop The Immortal Enemy – a monstrous force of nature. A civilization killer. A horror that appears differently each time it arrives…and whose seemingly only purpose is to bring disorder and darkness to the world. Now, the time has come for The Immortal Enemy to return once more. But, this time, the Eternal Warrior will be ready. This
time, he has a force greater than any single warrior. This time, he has…THE VALIANT.
An entirely self-contained, new reader friendly comics event spotlighting Bloodshot, Eternal Warrior, Geomancer, and a cast of heroes and villains from across the Valiant Universe, THE VALIANT is a visionary new adventure from three of the greatest creative talents in comics today.

Back Issues / Vintage Comics
—————————————-

Wha-huh?! YOU again?! Okay, so what are we talking about here? COMICS?! Is that what you’re telling me? You want some comics? Psshhh…okay…I guess.

This weeks edition of the Emerald City Comics Newsletter back issues section is entitled:

“These Comics Cost Thirty Dollars…EACH…Not Thirty Dollars For All FOUR Of Them! What’re You CRAZY?! Thirty Dollars For All FOUR! NO WAY!!”

(Note to editor: Do not condense length of title. Excessive length and poor grammar are integral to overall effect of the title, said effect being to overwhelm as well as entice the reader.)

First off we have Uncanny X-Men #221 in Very Fine (8.0) condition for $30 (see title above). What’s so Uncanny about these X-men? Well they’re mutants born into a world which hates and fears them … nothing canny about that.
The Oxford English Dictionary defines uncanny as: “Strange or mysterious, especially in an unsettling way.” Personally I find the X-Men deeply unsettling, especially Professor X’s eyebrows.
This particular issue of the Unsettling X-Men is the first appearance of Mr. Sinister. What’s so sinister about him? Well he’s English and he also wears what has to be the ugliest costume in supervillain history — I’m sorry but it just is.

Next we have X-factor #24 in Very Fine (8.0) condition for … $30 (see title above).
This one here is the first appearance of Archangel, whose name is a bit misleading being that he is not an actual angel nor is he particularly arch. He’s a mutant, one of the original Unsettling X-Men tortured and mutilated by the fiendish Apocalypse, given a pair of crazy metal wings that shoot razor sharp feathers and also outfitted with what has to be one of the ugliest costumes in superhero history — I’m sorry but it just is.
The Oxford English Dictionary has two definitions for arch:
1. “A curved symmetrical structure spanning an opening and typically supporting the weight of a bridge, roof, or wall above it.”
2. “Deliberately or affectedly playful and teasing.”
Neither seems to apply if you ask me, but I digress.

Third on our list is Incredible Hulk #340 in Very Fine/Fine (7.0) condition for … well, $30 (see title above). This is the one where the grey skinned, slightly-smarter-yet-not-quite-as-strong-as-the-green-Hulk Hulk engages a chap called the Wolverine in a gentlemanly contest of strength and cunning. I hope I’m not giving too much away here but the Hulk gets stabbed in his belly. No big deal though, he’s the Hulk, he can take it. The Oxford English Dictionary defines hulk as: “An old ship stripped of fittings and permanently moored, especially for use as storage or (formerly) as a prison.” Neat.

Lastly we have the old 1970’s Joker #1 in Very Fine- (7.5) condition for … you guessed it, $30 (see title above). The Joker used to drive around in a car with his own face on the front end — nothing funny about that, it’s just narcissistic. The Oxford English Dictionary defines Batman as: “(In the British armed forces) an officer’s personal servant.” Again, just neat!

CAPTURE CREATURES #1
BOOM! STUDIOS
(W) Frank Gibson (A) Becky Dreistadt (CA) Becky Dreistadt, Joy Ang
WHY WE LOVE IT: Frank and Becky’s sidewriting and gorgeous artwork have always been a favorite of ours, especially with their original web comics like TINY KITTEN TEETH. Getting a chance to tell their original adorable creature story and seeing more of what they can do…yeah, we wouldn’t miss this.
WHY YOU’LL LOVE IT: Becky Dreistadt (ADVENTURE TIME 2014 ANNUAL) and Frank Gibson (THE AMAZING WORLD OF GUMBALL) are two of the most clever and visually arresting creators in the business, and this is one of their most ambitious projects ever.

WHY WE LOVE IT: BOOM! has a long history with PLANET OF THE APES and for good reason: We love those damn dirty apes. Serving as a perfect tableau to examine society’s ills through the lens of science fiction, we were thrilled to explore those themes in the modern setting of the new films.
WHY YOU’LL LOVE IT: Michael Moreci (CURSE, HOAX HUNTERS) and Dan McDaid (MIND THE GAP) bring the hardworld of Dawn of the Planet of the Apes to life – dealing with both classic and modern POTA questions of what the true meaning of “society” is, and if being “civilized” is even possible in a world wracked with strife. Great for fans of endstories like 12 MONKEYS, THE ROAD, and CHILDREN OF MEN.
WHAT IT’S ABOUT: Bridging the 10gap between the RISE OF THE PLANET OF THE APES and DAWN OF THE PLANET OF THE APES films, fans will bear witness to the fall of humanity and the rise of Caesar’s civilization. While the apes of the world have yet to advance as a species, Caesar must find a way to unify them to one cause. On the other side of the country, Malcom must venture into the decaying Americas with his family to find a cure for the plague slowly killing his wife, Rita. World powers will shift as civilizations collapse and rise.

Back Issues / Vintage Comics
—————————————-

In honor of the Thanksgiving holiday this week, our spotlight is on story pack collections, complete storylines that come together as a family for the holidays and spend time with one another and give thanks for all of the awesome comics out there that make buying and reading comics such a joyful experience for everyone.

First we have Civil War numbers 1-7 for $100. They might not always get along but during the holidays the Civil War back issues set aside their differences and like to spend their time in the evening after their Thanksgiving supper watching football and enjoying a variety of store bought pies with a unhealthy amount of whipped cream on top.

The original Punisher miniseries from 1986 issues 1-5 enjoy slightly more exotic Thanksgiving fare like cornbread and oyster stuffing and deep fried turkey with cranberry-orange compote. For $75 you can bring home these holiday favorites and read them while you slowly drift into a stupor on the couch with your belt loosened and your pants unbuttoned.

Venom Versus Carnage issues 1-4 like to spend their time around the Thanksgiving table discussing how irritating it is that people start putting up lights and listening to Christmas music before they’ve even sat down and had their turkey-day dinner. For $35 you can join in on the discussion and express concern over people who wear Santa Claus hats in public.

Watchmen numbers 1-12 tend to ignore one other when they are asked to pass the gravy, even though they all know damn well that they heard each other. Then they like to ask “What do need all that gravy for, anyways?” and then it gets really quiet and then they reticently pass the gravy which you’re totally going to pour all over everything on your plate, even the cranberry sauce which is kinda gross. Maybe if you buy them for $125 you can show them how a family is supposed to behave during the holidays.

Happy Thanksgiving! Save room for pie.

ROBOTECHRPGTACTICS
ROBOTECH RPG TACTICS
Prepare for invasion! Robotech RPG Tactics is a tactical miniatures game set in the Robotech universe. While the 1/285th scale game pieces can be used as a companion to the Robotech RPG, the game system is designed to be played as a tabletop miniatures game. Players build armies of multiple squadrons of mecha to fight it out in scenario-driven, objective-based game play. Take command of the fighting forces of the United Earth Defense Force (UEDF) valiantly defending Earth from alien annihilation – or lead the massive clone armies of the Zentraedi Armada to recover an alien artifact of immense power and enslave humankind. Depending on the faction, and their choice of mecha, a player’s army may include anywhere from two game pieces to as many as you desire! The rules are scalable from small skirmishes to mass combat with hundreds per side.
Robotech RPG Tactics uses a dynamic turn system. Players trade off activating squadrons during each turn, ensuring that a player never has to sit and wait while his opponent moves and attacks with his entire army. By using alternating activation of squadrons, the game’s action unfolds at a fast and furious pace, allowing large scale battles to be easily carried out in a single evening. Each player receives a number of Command Points each turn based on the number of mecha they have on the field, and the quality of their officers. Command Points are spent throughout the turn on maneuvers such as boosted movement, devastating weapon salvos, breakneck dodging counterattacks, and potent special abilities.
The wide variety of mecha in the boxed game bring to bear the myriad and awesome weapon systems from the Robotech universe to lay waste to your foes. Even the battlefield itself can alter over the course of the game as buildings are leveled by destruction unleashed during the battle.

 

DOOMTOWNNEWTOWN
DOOMTOWN ECG EXPANSION 1: NEW TOWN, NEW RULES
Even in a rough and tumble town like Gomorra someone has to run the place!? As Morgan’s matriarch returns to town, two candidates step forward to vie for the mayor’s seat. Who will? you support?
Doomtown: Reloaded is a fast-paced expandable card game set in the Deadlands™ universe of gun slingin’, spell?slingin’ and mud-slingin’!
New Town, New Rules is Doomtown: Reloaded’s first Saddlebag Expansion. Featuring a complete playset of cards, NTNR will introduce new deck concepts for all four factions in the game.  Don’t be left with an empty holster!

 

TEMPORUM
TEMPORUM
In some of the best versions of reality, the Egyptians discover America, the industrial revolution happens early, and eventually robots take over. In others, the Renaissance produces a plutocracy, which leads to a utopia — or perhaps to anarchy; it’s all in the subtle details. As a time-traveler, you’ve seen it all, and it all has its place. What’s important is who’s in control in the long run when time travel is invented. With other time-travelers mucking with things for their own reasons, your course is clear: you will tamper with history as much as is needed, stepping on however many butterflies it takes, to get a perfect world under your own benign rule.
In Temporum, the board shows the possible paths history can take and the actual path it currently takes. On your turn, you can change history, travel through time, and visit a point in history. You draw cards, play some of them for money and abilities, and score some of them to advance your power through history. Having more power in a time period gives you abilities, but your goal is to have all of your power in the last time period, the time from which you come.

 

WITCHER
THE WITCHER ADVENTURE GAME
The Witcher Adventure Game takes players on a journey across the world of The Witcher, a detailed world, rich in lore and characters, fleshed out by Andrzej Sapkowski’s famous series of novels, and honed by The Witcher video game trilogy.
Players assume the roles of four distinct characters from this series: Geralt of Rivia, monster slayer; Triss Merigold, cunning sorceress; Yarpen Zigrin, dwarven warrior; and Dandelion, roguish bard. Each character has unique skills and multiple ways of overcoming obstacles, but you decide what to do during the game: Do you fight your way to victory, call on your charm, or try your hand at diplomacy? You can bring enemies around to your point of view with a sword as Geralt – or bribe them with gold and threaten to call on powerful friends as Dandelion. If a situation calls for strength in numbers, Yarpen has his own fellowship of dwarves to command, and Triss can rely on her expert skill with magic to save the day.
Each character has its own deck of Development Cards, so each time you play you can discover something new by trying out varied characters and experimenting with different builds. For example, when playing as Geralt of Rivia, the main hero of the Witcher franchise, you can develop your character either by specializing in brewing and utilizing combat Elixirs, or else by growing your ability to cast powerful Witcher Signs.
A variety of quests invite players to hunt monsters, earn gold and interact with the characters they meet in a web of alliances and treachery. Decide whether you’ll help the other players or look after your own interests first, and keep an eye on the progress of your friends while you carefully work your way towards victory.

THOR
MARVEL COMICS AVENGERS NOW THOR ARTFX+ STATUE
KOTO INC.
From Kotobukiya. Marvel Comics is the next great property to get Kotobukiya’s ARTFX+ statue treatment, and so of course the first series is none other than the Avengers, specifically the characters as they appear in Marvel Now!  In 2012 the comic book company relaunched several titles, shifting some characters into different books and updating some for a modern audience.  More than anything, it provided a perfect jumping on point for new readers.  Now the characters are brought to life as never before based on concept artwork by superstar artist Adi Granov.  Joining his previously released teammates the Hulk, Black Widow, Captain America, and Hawkeye is the Asgardian warrior THOR!
In 1962 comic book mastermind Stan Lee set out to create a new superhero, one who was incredibly powerful.  He found such a character in Norse mythology, the god of thunder.  A true champion of good, Thor has fought beside many other Marvel Comics superheroes throughout the years, including several incarnations of the Avengers.  He has even starred in two feature films as well as the ensemble Avengers movie!  In the Marvel Now Thor continues to fight the good fight in his own book as well as with his fellow Avengers that are gathered in this ARTFX+ series as Earth’s Mightiest Heroes.  Always eager for glorious combat, the Asgardian is captured in a relaxed battle stance, turned sideways and holding out his hammer Mjolnir in front of him.  Thor wears his distinctive Marvel Now costume that combines a black tabard with silvery armor, an ornate helmet, and a sweeping red cape!
Sculpted by the same master artist who did the rest of this Avengers series, Junnosuke Abe. Thor stands nearly 8 ½ inches tall (in the ARTFX+ 1/10th scale) on his included magnetic display base.  Whether by himself or displayed alongside the other Avengers in the Marvel Now ARTFX+ collection Thor is ready to lead the fight!

DC COMICS
(W) Harlan Ellison, Len Wein (A) José Luis García-López, Joe Prado (CA) Alex Ross
During the original Batman television series run, legendary science-fiction writer Harlan Ellison turned in an outline for a story that would have introduced Two-Face. The story never made it to air, and Two-Face never entered the TV show’s Rogues Gallery. Now, “The Two-Way Crimes of Two-Face” is adapted to comics by two comic book legends: writer Len Wein and artist José Luis Garcia-Lopez. Also included in this special edition are Ellison’s original prose story outline and the complete, original pencils by Garcia-Lopez.

Back Issues / Vintage Comics

Y’know what Emerald City Newsletter readers, sometimes I worry that we aren’t giving enough attention to our favorite super-heroines. Think about it. It’s always the masculine pronoun “superhero”, never “super-people,” and all too often we refer to our female super-people as “superheroes,” never “superheroines.” At any rate, this week’s selection of awesome back issues is devoted entirely to the wonderful “superheroines” who keep our favorite imaginary worlds safe from all those wicked “super-villainesses”.

Let’s start out with Ms. Jennifer Walters Esquire, also known as the Savage and/or Sensational She-Hulk. We have her first appearance in Savage She-Hulk #1 in Near Mint- (9.2) condition for $35. Even though she’s a huge green mesomorph, she’s also a lawyer from Cleveland. Neat right?

Next up we have a Very Fine (8.0) copy of New Mutants Annual #2 for $30. This one is the first appearance of Psylocke. Now just to be clear this is the first American appearance of original Psylocke, not sexy-ninja Psylocke. Also, when I say “sexy-ninja” I’m just using the more familiar terminology. My first though was to go with “beguiling-ninja” but “beguiling” seems a bit archaic, so then I thought “alluring-ninja” but then I thought … ahhh … y’know what, let’s just move on.

Next up we have Ms. Marvel Volume 1 #1 in Very Fine/Fine (7.0) condition for $150. Also note that when I say Very Fine/ Fine that isn’t some sort of value qualification based on the character’s appearance, that’s just the grade of the book. I’m not one to use the term “fine” when describing someone and I’m certainly not one of those “Oh, I’d say she’s about a 7″ type of guys. I mean don’t get me wrong, she’s very attractive for an imaginary person but… Hoo boy, this isn’t going very well is it? Never mind, let’s go to the next one.

Last but not least we have NYX #3 in Very Fine- (7.5) condition for $60. This is the first appearance of X-23, the female clone of Wolverine. Odd that she’s considered a “clone” even though she’s a woman and Wolverine is a man. Not really a “clone” if it’s not an exact replica, is it? More like Wolverine’s … daughter? Maybe? Not exactly sure how cloning works. Well, that one didn’t go too badly, did it? I just hope I haven’t offended any clones who might be reading this….

The Big Bang created all life as we know it. The Bigger Bang creates just one: a being named Cosmos. Is he a destroyer? A hero? A god? All he knows is that he’s completely alone in what was our universe… so he seeks out another where he’ll try to atone for the sins of his mysterious creation. From the inventive minds of D.J.

DEEP STATE 1
DEEP STATE #1
BOOM! STUDIOS
(W) Justin Jordan (A) Ariela Kristantina (CA) Matt Taylor
WHY WE LOVE IT: You know all those conspiracy theories you hear about? Like how the Jonestown Massacre was a failed MKULTRA experiment by the government, or how Lee Harvey Oswald was trained and brainwashed to be an assassin? Well, what if some of those were true? DEEP STATE is a dream (nightmare?) come true for conspiracy theory nuts like us here at BOOM!
WHY YOU’LL LOVE IT: With LUTHER STRODE, DEAD BODY ROAD, and SPREAD Justin Jordan has become one of the eminent voices in hardintelligent, original comics, and Ariela Kristantina (DEATH OF WOLVERINE) brings her unique, idiosyncratic style that has made her a breakout talent. If you’re even remotely interested in conspiracy theory stories from comics like PLANETARY and SLEEPER to films like ENEMY OF THE STATE and THREE DAYS OF THE CONDOR, you’ll be gripped by DEEP STATE!
WHAT IT’S ABOUT: John Harrow doesn’t exist, and his job is to make sure that other things don’t exist, too. At any given time, the government is running dozens of black book operations, experiments that aren’t on any official record and are never acknowledged to exist. Some of these are innocuous. Some of them are monstrous beyond reason. And most of the time, they go as expected and the public is never the wiser. Most of the time. John Harrow’s job is to handle them when things go wrong, and do anything to make sure the government’s secrets stay just that-secret.

KINGOFNEWYORK
KING OF NEW YORK
There’s always something happening in the city that never sleeps. Maybe it’s the lights, maybe it’s the energy, or maybe it’s the giant monsters trying to demolish the place!

King of New York is a standalone game from designer Richard Garfield that keeps the core ideas of King of Tokyo while introducing new ways to play. As in King of Tokyo, your goal is to be the first monster to collect 20 victory points (VPs) or to be the last monster standing. On your turn, you roll six dice up to three times, then carry out the actions on those dice. Claws cause damage to other monsters, hearts heal damage to yourself, and energy is stored up so that you can purchase power cards that provide unique effects not available to anyone else.

What’s new in King of New York is that you can now try to become a star in the big city; more specifically, you can achieve “Fame”, which nets you VPs, but superstar status is fleeting, so enjoy your time in the spotlight.

The game board for King of New York is larger than in King of Tokyo with each monster occupying a district in the city and everyone trying to shine in Manhattan. When you attack, you can displace a monster in another district, whether to escape military forces or to find new smashing opportunities. Yes, smashing because you can now destroy buildings and get bonuses for doing so, but the more destruction you cause, the more intense the military response.

The monsters from King of New York can be used in King of Tokyo and vice versa, but the power cards are specific to this game.

 

SHERIFFOFNOTTINGHAM
SHERIFF OF NOTTINGHAM
Prince John is coming to Nottingham! Players, in the role of merchants, see this as an opportunity to make quick profits by selling goods in the bustling city during the Prince’s visit. However, players must first get their goods through the city gate, which is under the watch of the Sheriff of Nottingham. Should you play it safe with legal goods and make a profit, or risk it all by sneaking in illicit goods? Be mindful, though, as the Sheriff always has his eyes out for liars and tricksters and if he catches one, he very well may confiscate those goods for himself!

In Sheriff of Nottingham, players will not only be able to experience Nottingham as a merchant of the city, but each turn one player will step into the shoes of the Sheriff himself. Players declare goods they wish to bring into the city, goods that are secretly stored in their burlap sack. The Sheriff must then determine who gets into the city with their goods, who gets inspected, and who may have their goods confiscated!

Do you have what it takes to be seen as an honest merchant? Will you make a deal with the Sheriff to let you in? Or will you persuade the Sheriff to target another player while you quietly slip by the gate? Declare your goods, negotiate deals, and be on the lookout for the Sheriff of Nottingham!

 

7WONDERSBABEL
7 WONDERS: BABEL
7 Wonders: Babel includes two modules for use with the 7 Wonders base game, and they can be used individually or together in any combination with other expansions.

In one half of 7 Wonders: Babel, players draft quarter-circle tiles at the start of the game prior to drafting anything else; each tile depicts a law that affects all players should it be put into play, e.g., all single resource cards provide an infinite number of resources each turn, or winners in military conflicts receive fewer points than normal.

During the game, players now have an additional option when discarding a card. Instead of gaining three coins, they place one of these tiles in the next open space on a circular display; the law on this tile remains in effect until the end of the game or until it’s covered. (Should a fifth tile be placed, for example, it’s placed on top of the first tile played.) At the end of the game, players receive points based on how many tiles they played.

In the second half of 7 Wonders: Babel, one of five law cards is randomly revealed at the start of each age, and a number of tokens are placed on it, based on the number of players. This card imposes a tax on players who want to play cards of a certain color. When a player pays this tax, he takes one of the tokens from this law card. At the end of the age, if all of the tokens have been removed, then players receive a bonus (which is depicted on the card) for each token they have; if tokens remain on the card, then each player without a token is penalized.

Just as the cost of cards increases in each age, the number of resources required to pay the tax also increases.

 

DRACOMAGI
DRACO MAGI
Myrgos, the powerful and benevolent Dragon King has passed into the next world after an extended illness, and the land is now gripped with uncertainty. As the laws of succession dictate, only one of his remaining apprentices can rise to the position of “Draco Magi”.

With the death of the Draco Magi, the wizard-lock on the succession strongbox of each apprentice has completely dissipated. Inside each box, an apprentice will find a succession scroll. Contained on the scroll is the last piece of knowledge required to become the Drago Magi — but only one can claim the title. Each scroll holds a different “Spell of Succession” that may be executed only with the correct combination of rare gems. These magically imbued gems appear in sets of three only during times of succession and must be collected by dragons at the command of each apprentice. The competitor who is first to collect the gems needed to complete his Spell of Succession becomes the new Drago Magi. For the loser, the unofficial title whispered under the breath of the people is “Novitius Eterna” or “Forever a Novice”.

Be swift and remember, there is little room for error.

Draco Magi is a card game designed by Richard Launius and Robert Burke. To start, each player selects an apprentice dragon mage he wishes to play. Each mage receives a deck of dragon cards that includes multiple copies of four different chromatic dragons (Green, Red, Black & Purple), four different metallic dragons (Gold, Silver, Brass & Bronze), and two special dragon cards (the Battle dragon and the Polar dragon). Each dragon has a different strength, weakness and special ability. Players will send their dragons, one at a time, to capture gems on different battlefields; each battlefield offers a different effect that may give an advantage or disadvantage to certain types of dragons.

Players alternate playing dragon cards on battlefields until they have played all eight of their Dragon cards. Each player can play a maximum of three dragons on a single battlefield. When a dragon is placed, it may make a ranged attack. Not all dragons have a ranged attack breath weapon, but those that do have a breath weapon icon with a number. The number indicates the number of battle cards the player may reveal when attempting to hit with a ranged attack. A defender may defend with the number of cards equal to the dragon’s shield value. A ranged attack can take place immediately only when the card is played against an opposing dragon. If a ranged attack is not used at this moment, the ranged attack is forfeited for the current round.

After all dragon cards have been played, the melee phase of the battle begins. Each dragon has a “melee attack” value printed on its card which represents the number of battle cards the player can draw for the battle. The melee battle mechanism is a unique attack and counter system that provides opportunity for deduction, subtlety, and deadly combos. Players will also earn advance battle cards that build up their decks over the course of the game. The player with the most dragons present on a battlefield wins that gem. In the case of a tie, the dragons and gem remain for the next round.

Draco Magi is a fast game heavily connected to its theme that incorporates area control, bluffing, hand management, deck building and deduction.
