Zombies! Dead people! KEY ISSUES! WAAUUUGH!!
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!
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.
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.
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.
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).
