Young Bruce Wainwright lost his parents in a violent crime…and in the real world, no superheroes exist to save the day.

New Games! 11/17/2017

 

DRAGONFIRE DBG

 

Dragonfire is a cooperative deck-building game set within the world of Dungeons & Dragons. Players choose from a number of races — from dwarf to elf, half-orc to human — while assuming the quintessential roles of cleric, rogue, fighter, and wizard. Equipped with weapons, spells, and magic items, players begin their adventure along the famed Sword Coast, then expand to other locales across the Forgotten Realms, such as Baldur’s Gate, Neverwinter, and Waterdeep in future expansions. Along the way, players level up their characters, opening access to additional equipment, feats, and more. Join the quest, and build your own legend!

 

 

RICK AND MORTY DBG: CLOSE RICK-COUNTERS OF THE RICK KIND

 

Based on the episode “Close Rick-Counters of the Rick Kind,” in Rick and Morty: Close Rick-Counters of the Rick Kind Deck-Building Game players play as and against different versions of Rick by building a better deck than their opponents.

The deck-building game is built on Cryptozoic’s Cerberus Engine as various versions of Rick serve as both players’ oversized Hero cards and the Villainous Council of Ricks. Each player’s deck starts with the following cards: seven Genius Waves cards that give you Power, one Beth, one Jerry, and one Summer. The Beth, Jerry, and Summer cards do nothing, but can activate other cards. The “Kick” stack in other Cerberus games is now the Portal Gun stack. The Portal Gun activates the Portal deck, which transports a player’s hero to a random location from the episode or other popular places from the series. That player may then utilize that location during their turn and has the option of paying the cost of the location to put it into their deck.

ECBC: Comics recommendations by “Doctor Vince”! 11/15/17

“Doctor Vince” is a rocket scientist by day, and an EC Book Club (ECBC) moderator by night! MISTER MIRACLE BY JACK KIRBY 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). 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 at stephanie@emeraldcitycomics.com, to reserve a copy!

From the Previews Catalog #350, November 2017 (for books arriving mainly in January 2018)…

 

“The late Len Wein, co-creator of Swamp Thing, was working on a new horror series with art by Kelley Jones…”

Swamp Thing Winter Special #1 (page 75) – The 1970s saw the rise of the weird/anti-hero, and among the best of these was the Swamp Thing. Both of his creators, Len Wein and Bernie Wrightson, have passed away, but this 80 page one-shot promises to be a fitting homage to them. Not only is Len Wein’s final script included, but also Kelley Jones artwork for it (example above), and a brand new 48 page story by super-star writer Tom King and illustrated by Jason Fabok.  ($7.99)

 

 

 

The EC Comics story “Master Race” is an undisputed masterpiece of comics art.

Master Race and Other Stories HC (page 346) – A hardcover anthology of short stories drawn by Bernie Krigstein and a treasure for any serious student of comics art history. Krigstein was a virtuoso of expressive drawing, story pacing, and the graphic depiction of time and motion in service of building psychological tension. This collection includes most of his best work, including a lyrical adaptation of Ray Bradbury’s “The Flying Machine.”  ($29.99)

    GLOOMHAVEN

    Gloomhaven is a game of Euro-inspired tactical combat in a persistent world of shifting motives. Players will take on the role of a wandering adventurer with their own special set of skills and their own reasons for traveling to this dark corner of the world. Players must work together out of necessity to clear out menacing dungeons and forgotten ruins. In the process, they will enhance their abilities with experience and loot, discover new locations to explore and plunder, and expand an ever-branching story fueled by the decisions they make.

    This is a game with a persistent and changing world that is ideally played over many game sessions. After a scenario, players will make decisions on what to do, which will determine how the story continues, kind of like a “Choose Your Own Adventure” book. Playing through a scenario is a cooperative affair where players will fight against automated monsters using an innovative card system to determine the order of play and what a player does on their turn.

    Each turn, a player chooses two cards to play out of their hand. The number on the top card determines their initiative for the round. Each card also has a top and bottom power, and when it is a player’s turn in the initiative order, they determine whether to use the top power of one card and the bottom power of the other, or vice-versa. Players must be careful, though, because over time they will permanently lose cards from their hands. If they take too long to clear a dungeon, they may end up exhausted and be forced to retreat.

    CASTLES OF BURGUNDY: THE DICE GAME

    As influential sovereigns, expand your estates through trade and commerce. Combine the dice to your advantage and find the strategy that will lead you to victory.
    The famous strategy game now in pure dice game!

    A "dice version" of The Castles of Burgundy.

    The game comes with 5 dice: A timer die, 2 number dice, and 2 color dice.

    Like the board game, the idea is to fill as many things on your board, and get the most points, mostly by completing color regions.

    One player rolls the dice, and then everyone picks 2 dice to use: A color die, representing a type of hex on the board, and a number.

    A hex can only be filled on the board if it's adjacent to an already-filled hex, or your starting castle, and each type of hex has its own rules for which number can be used to fill it, and its own reward.

    When completing a region of hexes, you get points, as well as a reward that you can then cross off to activate, such as workers and monks that let you treat a number or color die as having any value, and silver that lets you use a second combination of dice on a turn.

    The timer die sets the pace of the game, and also triggers a "shipping" action, where players can cross off collected crates for points.

    There are 4 different board layouts included. Solo mode is included.

    HUNT FOR THE RING

    In Hunt for the Ring, one player takes the role of Frodo and his companions, who are journeying from the Shire to Rivendell, while up to four other players represent the Nazgûl who are trying to hunt down the hobbits. While traveling, Frodo and others must resist being corrupted by the Ring that he wears.

    Hunt for the Ring is a hidden movement game played in two chapters, with each chapter being played on a different game board. In the first chapter, the Frodo player attempts to move from the Shire to Bree, gaining corruption points if they fail to do so after sixteen turns. If the Frodo player succeeds, they can either record their exit point (and other game details) to play the second chapter at a later time, or they can continue immediately, with the second chapter having the Frodo player move from Bree to Rivendell. In this chapter, the Frodo player doesn't control the hobbits directly, but instead draws cards from a journey deck, with each card showing one of many paths to Rivendell.

    Join us for EC Game Day, as our friends from All Things Nerdy host a Learn & Play session, followed by an Open Play session!

    If you're not familiar with the featured game, or need a quick refresher, you can join our Learn & Play from noon to 2pm, where our friendly and patient friends from All Things Nerdy will teach you the game and answer your questions! Or you can join us for Open Play of the featured game, or any of our gaming demos during that time!

    NO ONE gets you into the game like Emerald City Comics!!!

    The featured game for this session is... UNFAIR

    Build the city’s greatest theme park, whatever it takes!

    Mix your favourite themes, from Pirate, Robot, Vampire, Jungle, Ninja, and Gangster. Build attractions and upgrade them to match blueprints, stack up towering rides, or simply make the most cash.

    But watch out - your competitors may pay off the safety inspectors to close your rides or hire hooligans to vandalise your park! How will you get revenge?

    Whatever happens, it’s bound to be Unfair.

    Over the course of 8 rounds, you play Event cards to help yourself and hinder your opponents, build Attractions and Upgrades using Park cards, and match your park to Blueprints.

    You might hire staff to help you, or build a Super Attraction with a unique ability. Bribing officials and blackmailing politicians is also possible, but entirely

    STAR WARS DESTINY: LEGACIES

    Expand your Star Wars: Destiny collection with Legacies, a new set of booster packs for the collectible dice and card game!

    Legacies continues the evolution of Star Wars: Destiny, expanding on classic archetypes while introducing new mechanisms, including a new die symbol and a new card type. As a new Base Set, Legacies is a solid starting point for Destiny newcomers while introducing innovative new concepts that challenge classic gameplay and tactics.

    TOPIARY

    In Topiary, players try to position their visitors on the outer edge of a beautiful topiary garden in order to give them the best view possible. Visitors can see the closest topiary sculpture to them and any behind that, in the same sight line, that are larger. You can score bonus points for visitors who see multiple topiary sculptures of the same type. Players slowly fill in the garden by adding tiles until everyone has placed all their visitors.

    DUNGEONS AND DRAGONS: DUNGEON TILES REINCARNATED

    Breathe life into your tabletop game with these full color dungeon tiles. Infinitely expandable and easy to set up, these dungeon tiles allow you to create the adventures you want to play.

    Available in the following sets:

    -Dungeon

    Tiles to make fantastic dungeon maps: contains 16 durable, double-sided, fully illustrated tile sheets, featuring dungeon rooms, corridors, caverns, tunnels, and other terrain elements that Dungeon Masters can use to build exciting encounters.

    -Wildernesss

    Tiles to make fantastic wilderness maps: contains 16 durable, double-sided, fully illustrated tile sheets, featuring grasslands, ruins, sandy beaches, and other terrain elements that Dungeon Masters can use to build exciting encounters.

    -City

    Tiles to make fantastic city maps: contains 16 durable, double-sided, fully illustrated tile sheets, featuring city streets, buildings, sewers, and other terrain elements that Dungeon Masters can use to build exciting encounters.

    VALERIAN: ALPHA MISSIONS

    Valerian: The Alpha Missions gives fans of tabletop gaming and the Valerian franchise the opportunity to discover Alpha, a vast metropolis in which species from across the universe gather over centuries to share knowledge, intelligence, and cultures. After assembling a team of agents, players must cooperate to explore a contested zone of Alpha, race to complete objectives while battling and evading enemies. Complete the missions and get to the extraction site in time to win!

    The game board consists of randomly placed tiles that are revealed as agents move around the map, creating a unique experience each game. Players will never know who or what they might encounter – enemies could attack or players may discover valuable resources to power their mission gear. Each player must decide whether to split up and accomplish their objectives faster or sacrifice valuable resources to save their teammates. As the clock runs down and enemies gain ground, only the most skilled team of agents will complete their missions to return as heroes.

    ECBC: Comics recommendations by “Doctor Vince”! 1/12/18

    “Doctor Vince” is a rocket scientist by day, and an EC Book Club (ECBC) moderator by night! EC Book Club - Hawkeye vol 2: Little Hits! 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 at stephanie@emeraldcitycomics.com, to reserve a copy!

    From the Previews Catalog #352, January 2018 (for books arriving mainly in March 2018)…
    www.previewsworld.com/catalog

    One story spanning eight timelines - told by Europe’s mightiest comics creators (examples from the original French editions)

    Infinity 8 #1 (pages 378-379) - The deep-space cruise ship "Infinity 8" encounters a field of debris of unknown origin, and eight of the ship's top security agents are sent to investigate in eight separate parallel time-loops. But secrets lie within the inter-species population on the ship, some of whom may know more than they lead on. The debut of a far-out, pulpy, sci-fi series of parallel adventures in the tongue-in-cheek tradition of the original Heavy Metal, but for a new generation (Newsarama).
