New Product Update: Small World of Warcraft

A new day dawns on Azeroth. A day like every one before it, and every one after. A day of merciless struggle for the control of the World of Warcraft. Not only is this Small World territory far too tight for everyone, it also hosts the never-ending conflict between the factions of the Alliance and the Horde. Dawn has broken and the time has come to take your place on the front lines.

Small World of Warcraft is a stand-alone board game set in Blizzard’s glorious video game universe, Azeroth. 2-5 players vie for control of several islands in this hostile world and their only hope will be to pick the right combination of races and special powers. After staking your claim to a piece of land, defeat your neighbors and expand your territory.

If you can occupy legendary places and control powerful magical artifacts, you’ll reach new levels of domination. However, empires must eventually fall, so be ready to put your over-extended race into decline and lead a new one to glory so you can eventually rule Azeroth.

New Product Update: Mysterium Park

Welcome to Mysterium Park! Its cotton candies, its circus and its dark secrets… The former director disappeared, but the investigation came to nothing. Since that night, weird things have happened at the fair. As psychics, players are convinced that a ghost haunts this carnival. They’re now intent on giving it a chance to reveal the truth.

In this stand-alone asymmetrical game, the ghost sends visions with illustrated cards. The psychics try to interpret them to exonerate the safe suspects and locations and, finally, seize the only chance to understand what happened a few years ago. Players have six enjoyable nights before the carnival leaves. They must open their minds and find the truth! Buy it HERE

New Product Update: Mariposas

Every spring, millions of monarch butterflies leave Mexico to spread out across eastern North America. Every fall, millions fly back to Mexico. However, no single butterfly ever makes the round trip.

Mariposas is a game of movement and set collection that lets players be part of this amazing journey.

Mariposas is played in three seasons. In general, your butterflies try to head north in spring, spread out in summer, and return south in fall. The end of each season brings a scoring round, and at the end of fall, the player with the most successful family of butterflies — i.e., the most victory points — wins the game.

Available September 15th in both original and alternate cover, Icewind Dale: Rime of the Frostmaiden explores the frozen north of the fantasy world of Toril (aka the Forgotten Realms). The module departure from the more light-hearted adventures published to this point and promises to focus on threats to the players both from the arctic environment, ancient mystical creatures, as well as terrors conjured from the characters very psyche.

You will be cold, you will be alone, and you will be afraid…dare you continue?

Play focuses around the bastion of “civilization” known as Ten Towns; originally a series of villages that banded together in order to survive. Even though they are one political unit, each of the towns are far apart with isolation and peril are around every ice flow. Elements of paranoia and horror permeate the frozen waste as players explore and attempt to unravel the mystery of the Frostmaiden and her icy dungeon.

The main elements of the book surround the adventure within and the dungeon in which the Frostmaiden dwells. There is also lots of material for running adventures in Ten Towns (or any arctic setting). There will also be new Magic Items, loads of thematic monsters, and other great stuff for players and dungeon masters alike.

So put on your parka and get your snow shoes because it’s time to head north to Icewind Dale!
