EVERDELL gets two new additions to its world this weekend with EVERDELL SPIRECREST & EVERDELL BELLFAIRE!

We’re huge fans of the world of EVERDELL, and when we saw not just one, but TWO new EVERDELL-related items were dropping — we had to shout it out!

• Weather cards that impose challenging limitations to overcome.

• Discovery cards let players encounter intrepid new critters and locations on their journey, providing unique new strategies and abilities.

• Big Critters are unique workers with interesting and helpful abilities, who also serve as trusty mounts.

And, then in EVERDELL BELLFAIRE, t

he king is throwing an unprecedented year-long event to commemorate the 100th year since Everdell’s founding. Come one, come all, to the Bellfaire!

Bellfaire offers several different gameplay modules, including:

• Components and rules for 5-6 players

• Player powers and resource boards

• A Bellfaire board with a new Market location

• Garland Awards, which are shared endgame goals

• New Special Event cards

MAGIC THE GATHERING CORE SET 2021 arrives, and it’s AWESOME!

The newest CORE SET for Magic the Gathering is here, and it’s a must-have!

The newest WARHAMMER 40K PSYCHIC AWAKENING BOOK DROPS TOMORROW WITH PSYCHIC AWAKENING: PARIAH!

When Battle Group Kallides of the Indomitus Crusade reached the Nephilim Sub-sector, it encountered a silent zone, appearing to the group’s Navigators as a shimmering psychic veil that even calmed the noise of the warp beyond it. Upon entering what the region of space that henceforth became known as the Pariah Nexus, the Battle Group encountered even stranger happenings – including the Geller Fields failing on a number of ships, which would otherwise have been instantly filled with Daemons from the warp, but with no such catastrophe ensuing. What new devilry was this?

In the ninth instalment of the Psychic Awakening, you’ll read what happened when the secretive agents of the Inquisition began investigating haunting reports of the absolute silence detected in the Nephilim Sub-sector. Meanwhile, a vast set of rules expansions enhance your armies of the Inquisition with name generators, updated datasheets and much more besides.

The HIGH ELVES come to AGE OF SIGMAR with the all new LUMINETH REALM-LORDS Launch Box!

The battlefield glows bright as the Lumineth go to war. These elegant aelves hail from Hysh, the Realm of Light, where enlightening magic surges in the air itself. Able to channel arcane power through the marvel of aetherquartz, they are faster, more dextrous and more magically talented than any of their myriad enemies.

If you’ve been looking forward to this release, this Army Set is the perfect way to kick off your collection, giving you models, rules, dice and accessories that make getting stuck in with your new aelves simple.

Modern Tabletop Gaming Legend SHERIFF OF NOTTINGHAM returns with the new SHERIFF OF NOTTINGHAM 2nd Edition!

Will the Merchants get their goods past the Sheriff?
The bustling market in Nottingham is filled with goods from all over the kingdom.

Most of it is entirely legal, however, Prince John is looking to make sure no contraband gets sold. He’s tasked the Sheriff to inspect Merchant’s wares, looking for any illicit goods.

The Sheriff’s shrewd, but not above taking a bribe to look the other way. Which Merchant will end up getting the best goods through and make the largest profits in the market stalls?

In Sheriff of Nottingham 2nd Edition, players take turns playing the Sheriff, looking for contraband goods, and the Merchants trying to stock their Stall with the best goods.

The Sheriff can inspect any bag they want, but they must be careful, as they’ll have to pay a penalty if they find the Merchants were telling the truth.

This new edition includes updated rules, as well as expansions such as the 6th Merchant, Black Market, and Sheriff’s Deputies.

COSMIC ENCOUNTER DUEL is HERE!

OK, so — we LOVE the COSMIC ENCOUNTER games, and we love the DUEL format; so when you put the two together: you got us pretty darn good.

Challenge your closest frenemy to the fast-paced hilarity of Cosmic Encounter Duel! The Cosmic Citizenship Council has announced it will allow two new alien species into their ranks, but they forgot to make two copies of the filing form, meaning only one species can join! Now, the two candidates must battle for control of a minimum of five planets to prove that they truly deserve the right to become a Certified Civilization.

In Cosmic Encounter Duel, you will go head-to-head with your opponent, racing to win control of five planets. Colorful ships, hidden tactics, and your alien’s unique abilities might tip the odds in your favor, but beware! Tricks and traps abound, and you never know what destiny has in store!

WARHAMMER 40K goodness hits this Saturday, featuring the Return of FABIUS BILE with a new model and the PSYCHIC AWAKENING War of the Spider book!

Fabius Bile’s name has been accursed across the galaxy for 10,000 years. Bile was an Apothecary in the Emperor’s Children Legion when it fell to Chaos and joined Horus in his heresy against the Emperor. Even then, he’d begun his twisted experiments, attempting to improve Space Marines and declaring the Emperor to be short-sighted. 

In the millennia since, he’s made his way across the war-torn Imperium seeking to perfect his so-called New Men. He even spent time with the Haemonculi of Commorragh in order to perfect his genehancing skills. 

War of the Spider sees Fabius being chased by the Death Guard after stealing an ancient device from them. At the same time, he’s being tracked down by agents of the Imperium, but as they all enter the Spider’s web, the hunter may soon become the hunted.

Snag yours this weekend!

The DUNE EXPANSION: Ixians & Tleilaxu arrives this week from GALE FORCE NINE!

The cyborg, Prince Rhombur of House Vernius, leads the Ixians, masters of manufacturing and technologies only they know how to deploy.

Led by a small council of Tleilaxu Masters, the fanatic, xenophobic Tleilaxu were tolerated because of their useful genetic-engineering superiority.

Although underestimated and loathed by others, they hoped to someday dominate all.
