Launched in Europe to enthusiastic acclaim in 2016, Helmut Ohley’s First Class is steaming its way to the US. Step into the early days of the twentieth century, a time when rail is the preferred mode of transportation of the elite. Here, luxury lines scramble to accommodate the needs of business tycoons, diplomats, and even royalty. Now you can revisit this period and build your own luxury rail lines from the ground up.
From far and wide, people flock to the big red tent that travels across the countryside. Drawn by whispers of exotic animals and high-flying performers, some of these onlookers might even be tempted to leave their normal lives behind and join the show themselves. A new world of excitement awaits them in Under the Big Top, the tenth expansion for legendary tile-laying game Carcassonne!
Your decision to excavate the ancient city of Akrotiri has borne fruit. The temples you’ve discovered during your expeditions in the Aegean have increased your standing among your peers and made you a person of renown. But they’ve also drawn the attention of some staunch competition. More and more similar expeditions are launching every day, which means resources will be even more scarce and the race to discover temples even more heated. Only the most cunning explorer who shrewdly manages their resources while manipulating the layout of the board in their favor will gain enough fame to claim victory in Akrotiri.
The castle is under siege! Endless hordes of monsters line the outer walls as they march against the citadel. Never before have the forces of darkness been so well organized; leading the troops are archmages, dragons, and fearsome legendary creatures. Only a select few heroes are able to harness the power of the magical sources and repel the invaders back from whence they came.
Bastion is a cooperative strategy game for one to four players. Taking inspiration from extremely popular tower defense video games, Bastion subjects players to an unrelenting stream of attacks by a band of vicious monsters. By channeling the sources within the city’s districts, defense towers, and citadel, players work together to defend its borders, all the while gaining useful spells from the enemies they defeat. Only by properly managing their mana, spells, and rituals will players have any hope of withstanding the onslaught.
Hello Z-Man fans,
As you may know, we are now part of the Asmodee family. With this being a transitional period, we have been a little less present to answer your questions about new releases and reprints coming back to stores. We are truly sorry about that.
This article contains all the info that is currently known, confirmed, and available to us about the upcoming new releases, as well as upcoming reprints to return to stores.
We will be restocking our online store soon, but are currently concentrating on making sure local stores have our games in stock.
Please note that these dates are subject to change in light of possible shipment and logistics issues out of our control.
With new games come new mechanics, and this year's limited collector's edition - the new Pandemic Iberia - surely didn't want to let the long-time fans of the 8 years old franchise down!
The treacherous Darkhouse desires to expand its empire across the vast oneiric ocean!
With Gen Con in the review mirror, it’s already time to look at what’s to come, which can also be translated into Essen 2016. Oh, yes.
