LIFE SIPHON

Dragons have taken over the surface, forcing humans underground. During explorations, you and your fellow humans discover a box with an orange glowing eye on the outside. The words DO NOT OPEN are carved on the sides. Of course you open it…ONLY TO BE INSTANTLY CURSED!

The only escape is to take out your closest friend with your new cursed powers to summon Familiars and cast spells at the cost of your own life.

Each player’s goal in Life Siphon is to defeat the player to their left, and the game ends when the first player drops to zero health, meaning you must plan your strategy to be effective offensively against one player while defending against another. Since everything costs your own health, the heavier your offense, the more vulnerable you are. You may even find yourself aiding your attacker to give you the opportunity to make the killing blow.

 

 


MARVEL HEROCLIX: HOUSE OF X

The comic series House of X has been WHITE-HOT and flying off store shelves – we expect this booster release to follow suit!

This 5-figure booster release features many fan-favorite themes that Clix and comics fans alike will love including the Quiet Council, the Five, Excalibur, X-Force, Marauders, Horsemen of Apocalypse, Otherworld, Starjammers, and more!

Plenty of beloved characters that have never-been-Clixed will appear, as will characters that have been absent from HeroClix, and even some characters who we’ve never seen like this before! Apocalypse, Moira, Glob Herman, Maggott, Rasputin, Old Man Phoenix, and many more are coming to rock the tabletop!

In addition to awesome figures, this set will feature the return of Team Up Cards! Discover the hidden secrets of Krakoan Revival and get to reuse your favorite X-Men after they’re KO’d! Or, if you prefer, eliminate the mutant threat to humanity with Sentinels!

 

 


LETTERS FROM WHITECHAPEL REVISED

“In this revised edition of Letters from Whitechapel, many components have been improved from the previous edition based on the comments and reviews of players from all over the world.

“Jack the Ripper screen: Its usability is improved. The map is bigger, and the chart of the Special Movement tokens is now shown on it, so players don’t have to look at the rulebook during the game. The new physical design allows the screen to stand up by itself and better protect the secret information of Jack form the other players.

“Wooden tokens: Through repeated use of the Women, Patrol and Time of the Crime tokens, these components can become marked. Now they are made of wood to make it harder for them to become damaged and marked.

“Markers: Some of the plastic discs now are different colors to help them stand out more on the game board. The Clue markers are now yellow and the False Clue markers are blue.

“Letters: The Letter’s effects are now described in detail on the Letters, so players don’t have to refer to the rulebook during the game to use them.

“Rulebook: The rules of the game are unchanged, but the official errata have been integrated into the rulebook.”
