GEN CON aftermath and other news…

Compounded game in play

Compounded from Dice Hate Me Games is a game about building chemical compounds through careful management of elements, a fair bit of social play and trading, and just a bit of luck.

In Compounded, players take on the roles of lab managers, hastily competing to complete the most compounds before they are finished by others – or destroyed in an explosion. Some compounds are flammable and will grow more and more volatile over time; take too long to gather the necessary elements for those compounds and a lot of hard work will soon be scattered across the lab.

Time ‘N’ Space - Board Game Box Shot

Time ‘n’ Space  is a real-time, action-selection, production management, pickup-and-deliver game for 3-4 players that plays in exactly 30 minutes. In that time, you must produce goods and manage as many deliveries as possible to fulfil the demands on planets, while the other players are trying to do the same thing.

The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers Deck-Building Game - Board Game Box Shot

In The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers Deck-Building Game you take on the role of Frodo, Legolas, Aragorn, or one of their brave and heroic allies in the struggle against the forces of the Dark Lord Sauron!

While you begin armed only with basic combat manoeuvres, you will add new, more powerful cards to your deck as you go, with the goal of defeating the deadly forces that serve Sauron as you make way towards Mount Doom. In the end, the player who has accumulated the most Victory Points from the cards in his or her deck wins the game.

Mice and Mystics: Heart of Glorm

Prince Collin and his friends defeated Vanestra and thought evil had been banished from the castle forever. But deep within those scorched and shadow-haunted halls, something is moving that should not be. A malicious presence has taken root, and it has hatched a scheme that will ensnare the Prince and his friends and will forever change the course of history for the mouse-town of Barksburg.

The storybook in Mice and Mystics: Heart of Glorm picks up right after the events of Sorrow and Remembrance, letting you and your friends continue the story of Prince Collin, Maginos, Tilda, Nez, Filch and Lily. Included in this expansion are new plastic figures, cards, and counters, as well as a new series of chapters sure to test your mettle! And joining the heroes is Nere, a wild mystic who brings her powerful magic and knowledge of alchemy to the battle.

Assemble the Fleet

Even though the core of X-Wing remains firmly rooted in its fast-paced skirmishes between rival starfighters, attendees at Gen Con Indy 2013 received a sneak peek at prototype models for two of the game’s upcoming starships, the Tantive IV and Rebel transport. With rules for “Cinematic Play” campaigns and a new Epic tournament format, these iconic Rebel starships will soon add new dimensions to your X-Wing experience!
