This week's highlights....

Crisis (In stock now)

Axia — a land with a glorious past, a most uncertain present, and an even more unpredictable future. Populated by what has been described as a fervent and warm-blooded people, Axia is in crisis – economic, social, and political: the longest-running recession in its modern history, the highest inequality in years, and a political system teetering on the brink of collapse.
 
Will you, along with your fellow industrialists, do your part to help Axia? Will you sacrifice short-term gain in the present for a brighter future? Can you do that, and survive? Perhaps you can, and perhaps you can even thrive – and you will, if you see opportunity where others only see crisis!
 
CRISIS is a turn-based game for 1-5 players who assume the roles of businessmen, trying to rebuild their businesses and create value at a particularly challenging time. By skillfully placing their managers in a position to invest in companies, trade resources, and navigate the local bureaucracy and regulations, they can thrive and prosper in a time when others might struggle and decline.

We've played this about 5 times this week! A fantastic game with lots of interesting decisions and a theme that comes through well that we enjoy.

£44.99 (RRP is £52.99)

Choose Your Own Adventure : War with the Evil Power Master (arriving this week)

For centuries, the Lacoonian System, an alliance of the most advanced civilizations in the galaxy, has lived in peace. But now the Evil Power Master has returned and is leading a destructive rebellion. It’s up to you to lead the Rapid Force Crew around the galaxy, using their unique skills to conquer challenges and find data to chase down the Evil Power Master and stop him from enacting his sinister plan! Travel to the furthest reaches of the galaxy, make risky choices, collect items, and complete challenges in the newest cooperative adventure in the Choose Your Own Adventure game series.

 

£21.99 (RRP is £23.99)

Love Letter (arriving this week)

Love Letter is a game of risk, deduction, and luck for 2–4 players. Your goal is to get your love letter into Princess Annette's hands while deflecting the letters from competing suitors. From a deck with only sixteen cards, each player starts with only one card in hand; one card is removed from play. On a turn, you draw one card, and play one card, trying to expose others and knock them from the game. Powerful cards lead to early gains, but make you a target. Rely on weaker cards for too long, however, and your letter may be tossed in the fire!

This is a new printing coinciding with a change of publisher. Aside from cosmetic differences we believe it to be the same gameplay as the original.

£10.99 (RRP is £11.99)

Warcry Starter Set (some extras also available)  (released Saturday 3rd August)

From across the Mortal Realms, disparate warbands make the dark pilgrimage to the Eightpoints, seeking the favour of Archaon the everchosen. Blades will clash, spears will fly, and the ground will be soaked with the blood of the slain – only the greatest warriors will triumph!

Enter the dark world of Warcry – a new skirmish game set in the world of Warhammer Age of Sigmar. Choose your warband, and fight thrilling, fast paced tactical skirmishes in one-off battles or across epic narrative campaigns where your warriors grow and develop. This Starter Set is a must-have to play Warcry, giving you everything you need to start gaming and providing hours of thrills out of the box.

£84.99 (RRP is £100)

Scythe Modular Board (In stock nowr)

The Scythe: Modular Board expansion allows you to change the landscape of Eastern Europa every time you play Scythe thanks to its double-sided game board and four large double-sided landscape tiles. Faction locations, i.e., the home base tiles, change each time you play.
 
The modular board adds a drafting element to set-up, along with a variant for a tighter map at lower player counts.
