New Games! 3/2/2018

SHERLOCK HOLMES AND MORIARTY’S WEB

Sherlock Holmes and Moriarty’s Web is a cooperative crime-solving game played on a board of moving tiles.

KAIJU CRUSH – 3/3

Kaiju Crush is a light strategy game with limited grid movement, shared objectives, and intransitive combat on a modular board.

In the game, players choose one of four giant monsters to play and proceed to crush buildings and fight other kaiju for victory points. On each player’s turn, they choose to play either their own movement card or the shared movement card to land on and crush a city tile (a.k.a. a building). The player picks up the city tile and drops a territory marker in its place. City tiles score different points and territory markers can yield victory points based on objective cards that show goals like connected or unconnected territory markers, the number of city tile groups a player claims, and shapes created on the city grid.

Points are also generated by fighting either a monster on an adjacent space or a monster occupying a territory marker. To fight, players draw five territory markers and look at the reverse side. There are five symbols that represent the blows in the fight: firebreath, claw, tail, kick, and spikes. These symbols are part of an intransitive combat system, in which some symbols beat others but are beaten by others in turn. Each monster also has their own unique fighting ability as well as special abilities that change every game. Winners of either type of battle gain a random combat victory token worth 1-3 points. Winners of territory battles also replace the current territory marker with their own, which may help meet objectives as well as thwart opponents.

When no monster can move, the game is over, and the monster with the most victory points is supreme!

 

 

DECEPTION: MURDER IN HONG KONG – 3/7

Deception: Murder in Hong Kong is a game of deduction and deception for 4-12 players that plays in about 20 minutes.

In the game, players take on the roles of investigators attempting to solve a murder case – but there’s a twist. The killer is one of the investigators! Each player’s role and team are randomly assigned at the start of play and include the unique roles of Forensic Scientist, Witness, Investigator, Murderer, and Accomplice. While the Investigators attempt to deduce the truth, the murderer’s team must deceive and mislead. This is a battle of wits!

The Forensic Scientist has the solution but can express the clues only using special scene tiles while the investigators (and the murderer) attempt to interpret the evidence. In order to succeed, the investigators must not only deduce the truth from the clues of the Forensic Scientist, they must also see through the misdirection being injected into the equation by the Murderer and Accomplice!

Find out who among you can cut through deception to find the truth and who is capable of getting away with murder!

New Games! 2/23/2018

MUNCHKIN CCG

Eric Lang and Kevin Wilson deliver a completely new design in the Munchkin universe: a stand-alone, two-player collectible card game that holds up to competitive-level play but still retains the goofy silliness for which Munchkin is famous.

Munchkin Collectible Card Game is a combat game in which 2-4 players level up turn after turn, put loot into play to give themselves benefits, and attack (or bluff attacks!) against one another. Eliminate the other player first, and you win! In the words of co-designer Eric Lang, “Munchkin Collectible Card Game is a very different game from Munchkin. Imagine all the awesome humor of Munchkin as a short, competitive head-to-head slugfest.”

The card game will be distributed as fixed two-player starter sets and randomized booster expansions.

 

 


THE GRIMM FOREST

Welcome to The Grimm Forest, where family members of the legendary Three Little Pigs are having an epic house building competition. But this is no ordinary competition as all the most famous Fairy Tale characters will be looking on and occasionally lending a hand.

Who will benefit most from the cunning of Robin Hood, the beauty of Snow White, the bountiful gifts of the Golden Goose or the dark witchcraft of the Evil Queen?

Using only their wits, a handful of sharp steel tools, and a few stacks of resources gathered at great risk from fields, brickyards, and even the dark and deadly Grimm Forest itself, each player must compete to be the first to build 3 Houses and gain the title of Royal Builder.

Players are encouraged to use any of the devious tricks they have read about in the many books of Fables found throughout the land. Some will have their plans wrecked by that villain of old, the Big Bad Wolf, while others will gain bricks, straw, and wood by the cart load.

Who will brave the dangers, avoid foul monsters, and bring home the victory? There is only one way to find out… get ready to venture into …The Grimm Forest!

Grimm Forest is a 2-4 player strategic game of Hidden Movement, Resource Gathering, and House Building. It is a medium weight game that plays in approximately 45-60 minutes.

ECBC: Comics recommendations by “Doctor Vince”! 2/20/18

“Doctor Vince” is a rocket scientist by day, and an EC Book Club (ECBC) moderator by night! EC Book Club: MARCH Book One by John Lewis is the featured book at our next ECBC meeting.

Here are the comics and graphic novels that caught his attention in this month’s Previews (in addition to his usual pull list, and EC’s picks this month!). To ensure that you get these books when they arrive, please call the store at 727-398-2665 or email our Books & New Comics Merchant, Frank, at comics@emeraldcitycomics.com, to reserve a copy!

From the Previews Catalog #353, February 2018 (for books arriving mainly in April 2018)…

 The author/artist with his characters (image from the third part of this series)

Inside Moebius Part 2 (page 62) – I have no doubt that Jean Giraud, aka Moebius, will one day be regarded as the greatest surrealist illustrator and comics visionary of the 20th century. Dark Horse is presenting the illustrated journals from the last decade of his life in three beautiful hard cover editions. Part 1 was the mad sketchy exploration of the creator confronted by doubt and the weight of his reputation. Recommended for anyone who struggles with writers block, or is curious about where artists get their ideas.
($39.99)

 

This image from Fiore’s “5,000 km per second” is a good example of his storytelling style

Blackbird Days (page 364) – Manuele Fior is one of the best graphic novelists currently working in European comics. His stories blend sci-fi elements with what may appear, at first, to be slice-of-life stories. And yet, he weaves his words and images together to create profound emotional moments for his characters. This latest release from Fantagraphics is a collection of his short stories, ranging in subject from lost children to giant robots. Recommended for anyone wanting to try the bande dessinée style of comics.
($24.99)

New Games! 2/16/2018

Way of the Fighter: Super & Turbo

Way of the Fighter is an expandable card game that captures the look and feeling of an arcade-style fighting game: Two challengers, one arena, and all out close-quarters mayhem! The game primarily involves bluffing, resource management, and tactical positioning.

Way of the Fighter: SUPER includes five fighters: Ren, Jun, El Falcon, Alberdus, and Aurelia.

Way of the Fighter: Turbo includes five fighters: D’Shaun, Lumi, Faris, Kasi, and Severina

Players can build their deck from multiple card techniques, allowing them to customize their favorite fighter to fit a play style that best suits them.

Over a period of twelve intense turns, each player will control a fighter’s movement, manage the fighter’s energy, and decide on what actions to have the fighter perform against the opposing challenger. The game continues until one fighter is knocked out, or the time runs out; at which point one fighter will be declared the Champion!

 

 

Small World: Sky Islands Expansion

Small World: Sky Islands introduces seven new races and powers to the Small World base game, but it also gives those races — and all the previously released races — new territory in which to fight for control.

At the start of play, place the Sky Islands game board so that it shows either two or three islands in the sky (your choice), then use the Small World game board as if you were playing with one fewer player, i.e., use the four-player board when playing with five players. Next, place access points to the Sky Islands — the beanstalk and the stairway — on different regions on the game board. Whenever a race stands on one of these access points, they can try to conquer the space on the sky islands that shows the matching symbol.

Races can’t start their conquests in the Sky Islands unless their power specifically allows them to do so. At the end of a turn, if you control all of the regions on a Sky Island, you gain one additional coin.

    SUNSET OVER WATER

    Sometimes you need to get off the beaten path to find a beautiful landscape to paint. Wake up early, hike deep into nature, and find your perfect spot. Some paintings sell for commissions, others you’ll keep for yourself, but you’re always going that extra mile to find inspiration.

    Over six days, players gain Renown by hiking to beautiful locations to paint landscapes, which they’ll later sell. Each day, players choose a Planning Card, which allows them to travel through the Wilderness and paint (i.e., pick up Landscape Cards). At day’s end, they can sell paintings to earn Renown (i.e., turn in Landscape Cards to gain Commission cards worth Renown). Players also earn Renown by completing Daily Goals and by possessing Landscape Paintings at game’s end.

    NINJAK VS THE VALIANT UNIVERSE CARD GAME

    Free promo cards and Ninjak vs The Valiant Universe comic included! (While supplies last).

    The greatest heroes in the VALIANT UNIVERSE must team up to stop one of their own! NINJAK, MI-6's deadliest operative, has stolen an object of immense power and you must build up your power in order to survive against all the gadgets and threats he will throw at you while working towards your hidden agenda.

    It won't be easy... are you up for the challenge?

    Throughout the game, you will collect various tactics and artifacts that both make you more powerful so you can fight Ninjak while also earning you points towards your hidden agenda. The game ends after all of Ninjak's threats have been eliminated. You will need to work together with the other players to survive, but only the one who best completes their hidden objective will win the game.

    Warning: Contains violent images.

    ENDLESS PASS

    Enter the Endless Pass, survive the never-ending horde of the Endless, and compete with other vikings to claim the title of Conqueror of the Pass!

    In Endless Pass, players fight the scaly Endless to gain glory. The pass is also filled with weapons and runes to aid in defeating Endless, while allowing you to heal yourself. Combined with your action cards like attack, defend, evade, steal, and hide, you have more ways to defeat, evade, or defend against the Endless. However, whatever Endless are not defeated continue to plague the other vikings as they walk the Pass! You may also battle the other vikings. After all, you are fighting for glory and a place in Valhalla.

    The last viking standing or the first to acquire ten glory, while surviving the turn, wins the game. If none of the players survive, then the player with most glory is declared the Conqueror in Valhalla.

    5 MINUTE DUNGEON

    5 Minute Dungeon is a chaotic, co-­operative, real-­time card game in which players have only five minutes to escape the randomized dungeon. Communication and teamwork are critical to survival because there's no time to form a carefully considered plan — and no predicting what dangers lie ahead.

    In more detail, players assume the role of one of ten heroes, each with special cards and abilities. Once the five-minute timer starts, the race is on to defeat all the monsters inside the dungeon. In order to defeat a monster, players must match symbols from their hand with ones on the monster's card. At the end of each dungeon is a powerful dungeon boss — and after the first boss is defeated, the campaign continues to the second boss. Each boss, and each randomized dungeon, gets harder until players reach the fifth and final boss.

    LEGENDARY CREATURES

    There is a great buzz of excitement throughout the halls of Kajan, the School of Life, as the High Council has announced a Trial of Nature’s Grace! When a group of apprentices show sufficient promise, a Trial is called. Over a period of three days the apprentices racing through the realms attempting to earn renown in the minds of their teachers, but most importantly in the eyes of the fantastic creatures. Each student is given an Amulet, allowed the same three spells, and start their travels with an identical group of creatures who aid them with magical energy and fantastic abilities.

    The objective of Legendary Creatures is to win the trial and advance to the rank of Druid. Players do this with the aid of fantastic creatures who assist them in their quest for renown, whatever form it may take. An apprentice’s final rank in each elemental realm, renown earned through great feats, and expeditions to distant landmarks determines who becomes the next Druid!

    Legendary Creatures is played over three days, each of which consists of AM, Afternoon, and PM turns. Players draw 4 creatures from their individual decks, then play 3 into their stable and send one on a solo expedition. Order and types of creatures determine initiative and resource generation for the round. Players then take turns selecting the realm they'd like to travel in, the resources they generate, and the spells they cast. This is repeated each portion of the day with a final expedition at the end of the PM portion. Ultimate leadership in each realm and via their expeditions reward victory points to determine the winner.

    Here is the book that caught his attention in this month’s Previews (in addition to his usual pull list, and EC’s picks this month!).

    BAT-FANS, REJOICE!!! A LOST ADAM WEST CLIP APPEARS!!!

    Holy safety tips!!!

    Fans of Adam West and his Batman 66 series have a lot to be excited about today!!! A new PSA from May of 1967 has found its way from Britain to the United States!!! It has never been seen before stateside, and features Batman teaching kids the proper way to cross the street, known as the Kerb Drill!!!

    The PSA is beautifully over-the-top as you would expect, but the highlight is the extremely long, (and excruciatingly awkward), pause in which Batman is holding a young boy, waiting for the director to yell, "cut"!

    Sadly, Mr. West passed away last June, but as this clip proves, he was a great talent who can bring joy by merely standing still!!!

    If you're looking for Batman '66 items, your friends at EC have a Batcave full of books, comics, games, toys, collectibles and tchotchkes, waiting for you at our same Bat-Time, same Bat Channel!!!

    Just be careful as you cross the street to get here!!! ENJOY, citizens!!!youtube.com

    Ratland

    This is a Kickstarter game that will only be avaliable while supplies last

    Make your rat clan the most powerful gang of the sewer!

    In Ratland, each player controls a rat clan and they will try to turn them into the most crowded one. To achieve such a task, you´ll have to outwit your opponents to get the most possible food you can, even if you have to snatch it from your neighbors! But beware, they will try to do the same to you.

    Thanos Rising: Avengers Infinity War

    Thanos Rising: Avengers Infinity War is a cooperative dice and card game for 2-4 players.

    In the game, players recruit heroes and assemble a team to face off against Thanos and his villainous forces in an effort to thwart him from accomplishing his master plan: Collecting all six Infinity Stones to power the Infinity Gauntlet and wreak havoc on the very fabric of reality. Building upon the strengths of the characters on their team, as well as other players, winning requires critical thinking and communication to reach a common goal.

    Halloween

    It's Halloween — time to haunt poor unfortunate humans who think the holiday is all fun and games, but wait until you unleash ghosts upon this little town. Use your knowledge and wit to summon ghosts, move them around town, scare people, and even fight other ghosts because only one demon lord can boast of being the scariest demon lord of them all.

    Halloween is a tactical game for 2 to 4 players in which you take on the role of a demon lord that controls the many ghosts on the board. Carefully plan your actions through a unique mechanism that allows you to manage multiple ghosts to try to outwit your opponents. Summon ghosts, move them round the board, fight other ghosts, or use one of the numerous action cards that can give you great tactical advantage.

    Black Souls

    Designer Inc's latest video game title Black Souls has achieved international success! Hailed as one of the toughest digital games ever, it has attracted millions of hardcore gamers. The secret behind this huge success lies not in just making an extremely difficult game. Anyone can do that. The true challenge lies in balancing it to be as difficult as possible, but still fair enough that the very best players can survive to the end. Alas, the game studio is heavily short staffed and the management is looking to hire one more Game Designer for developing more content in Black Souls.

    You have been given a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to be hired by Designer Inc as a level designer, an integral part of Black Souls' development team! As one of the finalist candidates, you must prove your designing skills under the judging eyes of your future employers in an 'Early Beta Access' trial to create a level that best reflects the spirit of Black Souls - a very difficult, yet fair game. A group of seasoned playtesters will be sent to try out your carefully designed level, and provide feedback on whether they like or dislike it at the end of the run. If the level is too easy, they would not feel challenged at all. If it is too hard, they would all be killed and find it unfair. Who will be the final candidate to be inducted into the ranks of Designer Inc?

    This is a uniquely themed game - A game about designing a game!

    Monopoly Gamer (Standard and Collectors Edition)

    It's the Monopoly game with a Nintendo twist as it joins forces with beloved Nintendo video game characters. Instead of standard Monopoly tokens, the game features Super Mario characters, each with their own special powers within gameplay. Play as Mario, Princess Peach, Yoshi, or Donkey Kong. Finish the game by defeating Bowser at the end! It's not just about money in this game; players earn points by buying Properties, collecting Coins, and beating Bosses. The player with the highest score wins the game.

    RISE TO NOBILITY

    Five years after the events of Cavern Tavern, where a fragile peace was brokered between The Five Realms, the High Queen Tabita Orestes has ordered a new city to be built. The city of Caveborn will be the capital of the Five Realms, a place where all the races will learn to live together in harmony, with the main purpose being to bring them closer and prevent another war.

    The Queen needs to keep the alliance between the races and ensure that Caveborn is peaceful and prosperous. To that end, a Settlers Council has been formed with Berk the Town Clerk as its chairman — but Berk is getting old and needs a successor. Are you that person?

    Rise to Nobility is a worker (dice) placement game set in the same fantasy world as Cavern Tavern. You each own a small piece of land in the newly built city, and your job is to rise from anonymity, make your way to the title of lord, and take over the head seat at the Stone Council.

    You can achieve this by upgrading your land and increasing its value, satisfying the demands of the settlers' council, attracting and housing as many settlers as you can, accommodating their needs, finding them jobs, and helping them develop from apprentices to guild masters, thus insuring you have people in high places all around the city of Caveborn.

    WEREBEASTS

    You are a key player in the lucrative but dangerous business of collecting werebeasts. Armed with only your good looks and several cans of indescribably tasty werechow, you must bid for the werebeasts you need — and also for the ones you don't in hopes of throwing your opponents off track.

    Your fellow collectors in Werebeasts are also collecting certain creatures that have the most value to them. If you can hide your intentions long enough, you'll be rewarded. If you can make it to the end of the game without getting caught, you just might win.

    SABORDAGE

    The famous pirate Blackbeard has summoned you to his deathbed and entrusts you with his dearest secret: the location of his hidden treasure! But the old rascal played one last trick on you by also revealing the location to every renowned pirate on the seven seas. The race is on, but in order to reach the treasure, you need a ship, sturdy and fast — except everyone has had the same idea and the battle is already raging in the harbor before the ships have even been completed!

    Figure out how to finish your ship first in Sabordage, and you'll be on your way to treasure!

    DISNEY'S A WRINKLE IN TIME

    A Wrinkle In Time: Daring Adventure Game is a cooperative dice game that captures the journey of the 2018 theatrical adaptation of the Madeline L'Engle novel.

    In the game, players take on the role of the story's main characters — Meg, Charles Wallace and Calvin — and work together to solve mathematical puzzles, decode secret messages, and tesser to new locations to rescue Mr. Murry and get home. The engineering of a hexaflexagon is behind the "Flex Enfolders", which when used in conjunction with dice rolls must sum up to progress through five movie-based locations, or levels.

    A coding portion of each round relies on players' abilities to communicate and lay out an "operation chain" that aims to generate a successful result, after which they will use the color filtration of Mrs. Who's "Quizzing Glasses" to reveal Mr. Murry's hidden whereabouts.

    STRANGER THINGS MONOPOLY

    Strange and terrible things have begun happening in Hawkins, Indiana… better huddle down and break out a nice board game with your pals!

    -Monopoly game with a Stranger Things theme
    -Features 80s-inspired tokens and tokens “ripped from the Upside Down”
