SILK

The Imomushi silkworms can live only in the cold peaks of the Akaishi Mountains, and they produce the most delicate and expensive silk in the world. Very few people can withstand the hardships of the lonesome life a shepherd of giant silkworms leads. It is a solitary existence that requires great dedication and strength of character to bear the pressures that stem from competing with the few other shepherds who fight over the scarce but desirable feeding grounds, while keeping the fearsome ookamy at bay.

Silk is a gateway game into area control and worker placement systems. Players have to move their silkworms to the optimal spaces so they can feed on the best grass available, while pushing the other players’ pieces into less desirable feeding grounds. In this game, players roll dice in order to determine which actions they are allowed to perform during their turn. There are six types of actions available: breeding more silkworms, moving the shepherd or their mastiff, building fences or farms, moving the ookami monster around the board, and — most importantly — getting your silkworms to feed. When silkworms feed, they generate a number of silk points, depending on the type of terrain they are standing on at that moment. These points can be used to modify the outcome of a dice roll, all while keeping in mind that the player with the most silk points at the end of the game wins!

CIVILIZATION: A NEW DAWN – TERRA INCOGNITA EXPANSION

Beyond the borders of your fledgling civilization, the great unknown awaits – a land of vast open spaces, a map sparsely decorated with sketches of fantastic creatures, and a note saying, “Here are dragons”. As you progress through the ages, your civilization will spread to these lands and meet other emerging nations. But only if you first venture into the unknown as brave explorers.

This expansion is packed with new material and new possibilities that will expand the boundaries of your civilization. With Terra Incognita, you now have the opportunity to explore your surroundings, explore new landscapes, and make the game board dynamic as you play. Your cities will develop new districts that will give you new abilities. New forms of government offer you advantages, and the battle is redefined with more armies. Ten new leaders will also allow you to double the number of civilizations you can play. With Terra Incognita, up to five players can now build their own civilizations and discover new areas, making the expansion an essential addition to Civilisation: A New Dawn!

 

 

ARKHAM HORROR LCG: THE INNSMOUTH CONSPIRACY

Not far from Arkham, the stooped and weathered town of Innsmouth squats on the Atlantic coast. An aura of decrepitude and decay hangs over the city like the ocean fog, from the weirdly glowing windows of the Gilman House to the deserted and toppling Fish Street bridge. Beyond the city limits, the Innsmouth shoreline is pocked with half-flooded tidal tunnels and unnatural coves. Who knows what strange, abyssal trinkets you might find, among the skeletons of fish and rotting seaweed?

The Innsmouth Conspiracy, the sixth deluxe expansion for Arkham Horror: The Card Game, invites you to take your first steps in a twisting, time-jumping tale, starting with the campaign’s first two scenarios included in this expansion. From the heart of Innsmouth itself to the torturous coastline and beyond, these scenarios tee up an adventure that will continue to unfold across the subsequent six Mythos Packs. Far from including just two new scenarios, however, The Innsmouth Conspiracy brings five new investigators to the table with an undersea trove of player cards to support new types of decks—along with new mechanics for players to sink their teeth into, including keys, flood tokens, bless tokens, and curse tokens!
