    MAGIC THE GATHERING: BATTLEBOND

    Welcome to Battlebond, where competitors battle in pairs. Recruit a trusted partner and fight shoulder-to-shoulder, hand-in-hand, or back-to-back for glory and the roar of the crowd! Forge an unbreakable bond with your combat companion and claim your place in the pantheon of champions!

    UNLOCK! SERIES 3

    Unlock! Secret Adventures features three new "escape room" scenarios that you can play on your tabletop.

    Unlock! is a cooperative card game inspired by escape rooms that uses a simple system which allows you to search scenes, combine objects, and solve riddles. Play Unlock! to embark on great adventures, while seated at a table using only cards and a companion app that can provide clues, check codes, monitor time remaining, etc. The three scenarios are (according to the app):

    -"A Noside Story"
    -"Tombstone Express"
    -"The Adventurers of Oz"

    PROWLERS PASSAGE

    In the heart of the sleeping city, there lies incredible wealth. The city gates are well guarded, but no one is watching what’s under their feet. The dead of night provides just enough cover for you to tunnel your way to untold riches and plunder the city from within. But you must act quickly, because a rival thief has the same plan.

    In Prowler’s Passage, you and your rival burrow into the city through a network of underground passages to grab valuable items while attempting to gain control of key districts. Steal the best items, create the longest passages, and control districts to become the premier prowler!

    On your turn, you must (1) place a passage, then (2) collect the tile where you placed your passage, and (3) move control markers for the districts adjacent to that passage. The tile you collect will either be an item tile, which are scored in sets during each scoring phase, or a shovel tile, which allows you to move control markers further. You might also steal statues and/or complete achievements on your turn.

    MULTIUNIVERSUM

    You’re part of a team of brilliant scientists working on the super secret lab: CERN. While experimenting with teletransportation your team came across a wonderful discovery: portals to new dimensions!

    Just imagine! Once a portal is open a whole new magical dimension is suddenly very close. All you need to do is take one step forward and you're there.

    The problem is... The crazy wild creatures from those other dimensions can now walk in.

    Oh no.

    Close the portals NOW!

    Multiuniversum is a card game puzzle in which players use actions on their cards to do research, move between 5 modules of the Hadron Collider, preparing tools so they can close portals to alternative realities.

    Each player has 3 cards on hand and 3 actions to make during their turn. Using these cards players can:

    -do research (draw 2 cards)
    -prepare a tool
    -move to any machine module
    -close portal
    -use module ability

    When the player closes a portal he gets a sample from this universe (allows player to get bonus points) and knowledge points - described on card.

    Each 5 modules open 5 portals. The game ends immediately when three portals piles have run out. The scientist who got the most knowledge points receive a Nobel prize and wins the game.
