INNISTRAD: MIDNIGHT HUNT pre-release awesomeness arrives this weekend — get your pre-release packs & more to kick off the next MTG set in the comfort of your own home!
Innistrad: Midnight Hunt promises to be a howling good time. By the silvery shine of moonlight, you’ll find plenty of packs to hunt for. What you’ll do if you find a pack of Werewolf creatures—or, more likely, they find you—is entirely another matter. (Good luck!)
TEN debuts from ALDERAC ENTERTAINMENT GROUP this week — and it’s a blast!
TEN is an exciting push-your-luck and auction game for the whole family! Players draw cards one-at-a-time, trying to add as many as they can without exceeding a total value of TEN, or they bust! Players may push their luck to draw more cards and use currency to buy additional cards in their attempt to build the longest number sequence in each color. When valuable wildcards emerge from the deck, players compete in auctions to obtain them in order to fill gaps in their sequences!
Game Length: 15-30 minutes
WARHAMMER AGE OF SIGMAR brings us the ORRUK Battletomes this Saturday!
The Orruks are Destruction incarnate. This vicious and primal race of natural-born killers loves nothing more than to wage unending war. Their society is built around conflict, and huge migratory invasions called Waaagh!s erupt from all corners of the Mortal Realms to drown the worlds of Order, Death, and Chaos in a green tide of violence. To face the Orruk Warclans is to face total annihilation, for their numbers are beyond counting, and they live solely for the thrill of bloody combat.
In this book, you’ll discover the history of the Orruk Warclans, including their presence across the Mortal Realms and the societies that hold them together. As well as exploring the movements and motives of the orruk race, Battletome: Orruk Warclans also gives you insight into their spiritual connection to Gorkamorka, the primordial god of Destruction. The background information is complemented by a full suite of rules allowing you to field armies of Ironjawz, Bonesplitterz, and Kruleboyz, or to combine all three clans into one colossal Big Waaagh!.
THE NEW EDITION OF GALAXY TRUCKER ARRIVES THIS WEEK, BRINGING THE CLASSIC TABLETOP GAME BACK TO LIFE!
In the fast and goofy family game Galaxy Trucker, players begin by simultaneously rummaging through the common warehouse, frantically trying to grab the most useful component tiles to build their spaceship – all in real-time.
Once the ships are launched, players encounter dangerous situations while vying for financial opportunities, each hoping to gain the most valuable cargo and finish with as much of their ship still intact as possible. Of course, that’s easier said than done since many hazards will send pieces of your ship, your cargo, and your crew hurling into the depths of space.
The goal is to survive the trek – hopefully with at least some of your crew and ship intact – and have at least one credit by the end of the game. (Profit, yay!) Players earn credits by delivering goods, defeating pirates, having the best-looking ship, and reaching their destination before the others.
This version of Galaxy Trucker is a relaunch of the original 2007 release by Vlaada Chvátil that features new art, more ship tiles, tweaked card effects, and streamlined gameplay that consists of only a single flight through space. That said, should you want a longer, more challenging experience, you can play a three-flight campaign known as the “Transgalactic Trek”.

4 Triple-Sided Ship Boards
156 Space Ship Components
68 Cosmic Credit Tiles

THE 2ND EDITION OF POST-APOCALYPTIC TABLETOP MASTERPIECE WASTE KNIGHTS IS HERE!
Welcome to the Waste – desolate and ruined Australia full of feral beasts, haywire cybernetic constructs, mutants and ruthless gangs prowling the badlands. Half a century and one global disaster, called the Scourge, into the future, every day is a battle for survival and you are among those who are best fit to win.
As one of the Waste Knights you brave threats of the road seek adventure, resources and fame (or notoriety), while facing terrible dangers and experiencing stark wonders of this harsh reality. A new world is being forged from the ashes of old civilization. You will embrace it…or die trying!
Waste Knights: Second Edition is a post-apocalyptic game of adventure and survival. It is scenario-based, with each story governed by a different ruleset and filled with hundreds of narrative choices. Play cooperatively to bring down powerful villains, or challenge your friends in competitive adventures. But most of all, immerse yourself in a rich setting, in which adventure, thrill, combat, and strategy blend into a unique gaming experience.
DON’T FORGET: Dungeons & Dragons The Wild Beyond The Witchlight releases this Tuesday 9/21/21! Visit your local Third Eye to pre-order yours!
Once every eight years, the fantastic Witchlight Carnival touches down on your world, bringing joy to one settlement after the next. Its owners, Mister Witch and Mister Light, know how to put on a good show. But there’s more to this magical extravaganza than meets the eye!
The carnival is a gateway to a fantastic Feywild domain unlike anything found on the Material Plane. Time has not been kind to this realm, however, and dark days lie ahead unless someone can thwart the dastardly schemes of the Hourglass Coven.
The Wild Beyond the Witchlight takes adventurers from the Witchlight Carnival to Prismeer, a Feywild domain of delight, and is designed for characters of levels 1–8. This book comes with a poster map that shows the carnival on one side and Prismeer on the other.
- Explore the Plane of Faerie in the first official D&D adventure set primarily in the Feywild.
- The adventure begins on a campaign world of the DM’s choice. The Witchlight Carnival, which serves as the means by which the characters enter the Feywild, can be dropped easily into any campaign setting.
- Adds two new character backgrounds: the Feylost (for characters who grew up in the Feywild) and the Witchlight Hand (for characters who work at the Witchlight Carnival).
- Introduces two races—play as a fairy or as a harengon, a race of humanoid rabbits.
- All encounters in the adventure include a non-combat option, allowing players to think and roleplay their way through the adventure if they wish.
- Classic 1980s Dungeons & Dragons characters return, including Warduke, Strongheart, and Kelek.
