New in the shop today we have the latest Pokemon set, XY5 Primal Clash, plus Collectors Albums, The Warhammer Conquest expansion Gift of the Ethereals and the brand new X-Files board game where 1-4 agent players team up against one opponent who controls the Smoking Man and his nefarious network.
Also new in is the Crisis Expansion for the DC Deck-Building Game which introduces co-operative gameplay and “Impossible Mode”
Alchemists, a game where two to four budding alchemists compete to discover the secrets of their mystical art. Points can be earned in various ways, but most points are earned by publishing theories – correct theories, that is — and therein lies the problem.
In The Ancient World, players compete to grow the largest and most influential city-state by managing citizens, treasury, and military and by defeating titans. Players take turns sending citizens to take special actions or using military cards to attack titans. One of the actions a citizen can perform is to build Empire cards, which give more citizens, money, and abilities.
There’s also a new Machi Koro Expansion: The Harbor which expands the Machi Koro base game by adding thirteen new types of cards: ten new establishments, one new starting establishment, and two new landmarks. The expansion adds more complexity to the game, including seaports and airports that can be upgraded with additional boats (in the case of seaports) or facilities. Players also now need to complete six landmarks instead of four. Finally, with more establishments in the game, players choose only ten for use in any single game, mixing up what’s available each time you bring it to the table. It also increases the number of players to 5.
