That killer DUNE board game is back in stock!!! Get yours!
We LOVE the GALE FORCE 9 Dune Board Game that came out last year, and with it having been out of print for a hot minute, we’re stoked to proclaim: it’s back!
Imagine you control the forces of a noble family, guild, or religious order on a barren planet which is the only source for the most valuable substance in the known universe. Imagine you can rewrite the script for one of the most famous science fiction books of all time.
In Dune, you will become the leader of one of six great factions. Each wishes to control the most valuable resource in the universe – melange, the mysterious spice only found at great cost on the planet Dune. As Duke Leto Atreides says, “All fades before Melange. A handful of spice will buy a home on Tupile. It cannot be manufactured; it must be mined on Arrakis. It is unique and it has true geriatric properties.” And without melange, space travel would be impossible. Only by ingesting the addictive drug can the Guild Steersman continue to experience visions of the future, enabling them to plot a safe path through hyperpsace.

New ARKHAM HORROR Mythos Pack INTO THE MAELSTROM hits this week!
Into the Maelstrom is the sixth Mythos Pack in The Innsmouth Conspiracy cycle.
Throughout your Innsmouth investigations, you have ventured into tide-hollowed caves and dripping tunnels – but these watery caverns are only the antechamber of the Deep Ones’ domain. A hidden city rests beneath the choppy waves of the North Atlantic, slumbering at the bottom of the ocean. If you’re going to protect the world from suffering the same fate as Innsmouth, you’ll need to venture into the heart of the storm.
Within this Mythos Pack, you’ll find the final scenario of The Innsmouth Conspiracy cycle, inviting you and your fellow investigators to dive into the darkness beneath the waves and confront the Deep Ones in their own city – putting an end to this threat forever. Combined with the addition of new player cards to upgrade your decks, Into the Maelstrom is a perfect capstone for a cycle of danger and mystery.

NEW WARHAMMER UNDERWORLDS GOODNESS WITH THE MADMOB!
All Bonesplitterz carry a spark of the violent god Gorkamorka’s wild rage in their cracked minds. In the Wurrgog Prophet Hedkrakka, the self-proclaimed ‘Gob of Gork’, this connection is especially strong. Hearing the Great Green God’s command through his serpent familiar, Hedkrakka led his Madmob far across the realm of Ghur, seeking a beast of truly colossal proportions. In the living mountain, Beastgrave, they found their prey.
While you might not expect it from a warband that takes advice from a talking snake, Hedkrakka’s Madmob can do a bit of everything in Warhammer Underworlds. They’re tough, they can fight, there’s enough of them to easily claim objectives, and they can really take advantage of the Primacy mechanic. This set also features universal cards for any warband in Warhammer Underworlds, while a free downloadable warscroll lets you fight with Hedkrakka’s Madmob in Warhammer Age of Sigmar.
This set contains:
– 4x push-fit Hedkrakka’s Madmob miniatures – no glue required to assemble
– 4x fighter cards, representing each warrior in your games – Hedkrakka, Toofdagga, Wollop da Skul, and Dakko Sharp-Stikka
– A further 62 playable cards (only available in this set) to enhance your fighters and provide new tactics and challenges for your games of Warhammer Underworlds: Direchasm, including:
– 12x Hedkrakka’s Madmob objective cards
– 10x Hedkrakka’s Madmob upgrade cards
– 10x Hedkrakka’s Madmob ploy cards
– 10x Universal objective cards, usable by any warband
– 10x Universal upgrade cards, usable by any warband
– 9x Universal gambit cards, usable by any warband
