We’ve got everything you need for the newest D&D adventure, ICEWIND DALE: RIME OF THE FROSTMAIDEN!

Every release, D&D just gets better and better, and the newest one — ICEWIND DALE: RIME OF THE FROSTMAIDEN may be our favorite yet!

In Icewind Dale, adventure is a dish best served cold.

Beneath the unyielding night sky, you stand before a towering glacier and recite an ancient rhyme, causing a crack to form in the great wall of ice. Beyond this yawning fissure, the Caves of Hunger await. And past this icy dungeon is a secret so old and terrifying that few dare speak of it. The mad wizards of the Arcane Brotherhood long to possess that which the god of winter’s wrath has so coldly preserved—as do you! What fantastic secrets and treasures are entombed in the sunless heart of the glacier, and what will their discovery mean for the denizens of Icewind Dale? Can you save Ten-Towns from the Frostmaiden’s everlasting night?

Icewind Dale: Rime of the Frostmaiden is a tale of dark terror that revisits the forlorn, flickering candlelights of civilization known as Ten-Towns and sheds light on the many bone-chilling locations that surround these frontier settlements.

We’ve got the books (both the regular cover art, and the limited edition cover art!), the miniatures, and more to hook you up!

You can pick ’em up in-store, or order online for in-store pick up or $5 flat rate shipping here.

Tabletop favorite, SPLENDOR, collides with the world of the MARVEL UNIVERSE in MARVEL SPLENDOR, and we love it!

Bring together a team of super heroes and prevent Thanos from ending the world! The Infinity Stones are scattered throughout the Multiverse. Use their essence to recruit heroes and villains and gain Infinity Points.

Assemble the Avengers, acquire locations and when ready, claim the Infinity Gauntlet! Pick your tokens carefully, recruit characters to gain Infinity Points and bonuses. These bonuses help you recruit more powerful heroes and acquire locations…until you gather enough characters, power, and Infinity Points to trigger the endgame!

Even though Splendor Marvel uses Splendor’s core rules and high-quality materials, it has a different color structure, a new endgame trigger, and new victory conditions. You can also gain Infinity Points with the Avengers Assemble tile that can be passed from one player to another several times during the game!

If you are keen on Splendor, learning the rules will be easy, but mastering the game may take you a while. And if you don’t know Splendor, soon you will enjoy its quick and simple rules and become addicted to this game without even realizing it!

The new MARVEL CHAMPIONS: Rise fo the Red Skull Expansion is here!

We’re loving the heck out of the new living card game, MARVEL CHAMPIONS, and we cannot wait to dig into the newest expansion, RISE OF THE RED SKULL!

The Rise of Red Skull boasts a massive infusion of new content for your games of Marvel Champions. Hawkeye and Spider-Woman join your roster of heroes with fully pre-built and ready-to-play player decks stuffed with new cards.

Whether you’re playing these new heroes or relying on old favorites, you can test their mettle against five brand-new villains: Crossbones, Absorbing Man, Taskmaster, Zola, and Red Skull. Each of these five scenarios offers a unique challenge, and while you can simply choose a villain to battle, this campaign expansion lives up to its name with the introduction of campaign mode to Marvel Champions: The Card Game.

New POKEMON Eternatus V-MAX Premium Collection & Eternatus Tins are here!

Stories say the Legendary Pokémon Eternatus is the power behind the Dynamax phenomenon in the Galar region — and now all that power is contained in one place!

This premium collection brings you both Eternatus V and Eternatus VMAX as playable foil cards, an oversize card that shows off this Legendary Pokémon in its unique Eternamax form, a collector’s pin, and a handful of Pokémon TCG booster packs to expand your collection.


We know you guys love those WARHAMMER mini-games and side-games, and the BLACKSTONE FORTRESS stuff is some of the most fun!

The shifting chambers of the Blackstone Fortress rebuild themselves over and over, and ancient defence systems awaken, making navigating the mysterious structure more hazardous than ever.

Doom hangs over Precipice, and if anyone is to warn the galaxy about the rising threat of the fortress, each of the survivors will have to confront their destiny.

Are your explorers ready for their final quest into the Blackstone Fortress? Continuing from the events in Deadly Alliance, The Seethe is now getting more powerful and threatens Precipice itself.

This expansion includes two new hostiles in the form of Guardian Drones and a new “rolling road” mechanic that sees you explore the Blackstone Fortress as never before.

If you can complete the quest, there is a whole host of bonus secret content to explore. Also included are rules for using Guardian Drones in games of Warhammer 40,000.


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.

Snag yourself a copy this weekend!


The city of Carcassonne is celebrating its national holiday. As is the tradition, people mark the occasion by setting the city’s sheep, hens, and cows loose in the streets.

From dawn till dusk, the children of Carcassonne have the time of their lives trying to bring these animals back home. With My First Carcassonne, players of all ages can experience a new version of the modern classic.

Each turn, you place a tile to build the Medieval city of Carcassonne.

As the game progresses, the children of Carcassonne—illustrated on the cards—fill the streets trying to catch animals. Whenever you close a street with one or more children marked with your chosen color, you get to put pawns on the board. The first player to place all their pawns wins the game!
