Conquer the Sky with the new Small World expansion: Sky Islands

Sep 14 2017

It was a lovely spring morning; Giants were getting new tattoos and the rest of the Small World  inhabitants were preparing for another day of conquest. An eerie silence settled on the lands as a huge shadow glided over forest and mountain. Had the Wizards accidentally given their flocks of sheep flight again ?

All eyes turned to the horizon as an archipelago of Sky Islands floated over Small World… and realization dawned at the same time as the sun. New lands meant new riches! Within a few hours, the most enterprising races were swarming up a Giant Magical Beanstalk and a Stairway to Heaven on their way to wealth. The battle for the Sky Islands had just begun…

Find out Small World – Sky Islands a new expansion for the award-winning fantasy board game Small World, designed by Philippe Keyaerts and T. Alex Davis.

In Small World – Sky Islands, the newest expansion for Small World, new lands are floating closer, but the world remains too small—and that’s not going away with the new board featuring the floating Sky Islands. Each island completely conquered by a single Race will earn additional coins for that race, but accessing the Sky Islands is not easy. To help the players in their conquests, this expansion also features an assortment of new and zany races and special powers, such as the Scavengers, created by Sam Iam Lasseter, or the impressive Storm Giants, created by T. Alex Davis. To sort them all, a storage tray is included in this expansion.

Small World – Sky Islands is an expansion for 3 to 6 players. It includes a double-sided board, 7 Fantasy Race banners, 94 Matching Race tokens, 4 Lost Tribe tokens, 5 Zeppelin/Burning Region tokens, 5 Trade Pact tokens, 3 transformed Drakon tokens, 2 Lightning Bolt tokens, 2 Cannon tokens, 2 Access point to Sky Islands tokens, 1 “END” token, 1 Summary Sheet, a rules booklet, and a storage tray. This expansion is scheduled to be available at Essen and shortly after in Europe, followed by a early December release in North America, at a suggested retail price of €28-$30

Dive into the French culture with Ticket to Ride – France

Aug 22 2017

Dive into thriving French culture during impressionism and the Industrial Revolution; street cafes, “Starry Night”, Paris Boulevards, and Notre-Dame. The French railroad system is a blank canvas just waiting for your masterful strokes. However, before you can start claiming routes, you’ll need to lay the track! Watch for your opponents, though, because they might claim the route you just spent so much time building… 

Find out Ticket to Ride Map Collection Volume 6 – France and Old West a new expansion  in our well-known Ticket to Ride series.

This expansion will challenge the players’ existing habits, as this time, before claiming a route, you will need to build the tracks and choose their colors. This simple variation adds a new twist to Ticket to Ride and makes the France map completely unique. The double-sided board also features a map of Old West, where up to six players can develop their railway networks starting from their Home Cities. Claiming routes along the way will make players face a dilemma: every time a player takes a route which leads to a city controlled by an opponent, that opponent scores the points.

 

   

Ticket to Ride – France includes a oversized, double-sided map. The French map is designed for 2-5 players and includes 58 Destination Tickets cards, 2 Bonus cards, and 64 Track Pieces. The Old West map is designed for 2-6 players and includes 50 Destination Tickets cards, 2 Bonus Cards, 40 White Train Cars, 18 City Markers, and 1 Alvin the Alien Marker. Both of these maps require the trains and the train car cards from either Ticket to Ride® or Ticket to Ride® Europe. This expansion is scheduled to be available at Essen and in Europe late October followed by a early November release in the USA, at a suggested retail price of €40-$44.99.

Whims of the Sultan, a new expansion for Five Tribes

May 5 2017

Five Tribes

The Sultanate of Naqala continues to flourish. This time of prosperity has attracted more competitors than grains of sand in the desert, so if you expect to remain on top, you’ll have to learn some new tricks… especially since the Sultan founded 5 new fabulous cities that everyone wants to control. I’ve also heard that the Sultan sometimes holds hearings in those cities, offering huge rewards to those who grant him his whims.

Will you be able to control the fabulous cities and fulfill the Sultan’s capricious wishes?

Whims of the Sultan contains all the components needed to play five-player games and introduces new Fabulous Cities tiles. Visiting these cities will give players opportunities to win glory as they fulfill excessive requests from the Sultan by completing Whim of the Sultan cards. Fierce competition is to be expected, as controlling these tiles can be a major contributor to a player’s final score.

This expansion contains 6 tiles, 15 wooden tribe meeples, 8 camels, 1 tent and 1 player’s turn marker, 22 Whim of the Sultan cards, 2 Djinn cards,1 bid order track and 1 turn order track for 5 player games, 1 pad of scoring sheets, and 1 summary sheet. It is expected to be available in June in Europe and at Gen Con Indy 2017 in August for North America, at a suggested retail price of €25/$30.

This expansion can be played with the base game alone or along with “The Artisans of Naqala” expansion.

Ticket to Ride: Germany – build your empire across 19th century Germany

Apr 12 2017

Turn of the century Germany… Through a fine autumn rain, a plume of smoke announces the arrival of the 4:15 train from Nuremberg in the Munich Central Station. The din of the massive engine grows more intense, culminating with a prolonged hiss as the locomotive halts at the platform, steam erupting in every direction. Already, porters in livery are rushing to unload baggage as passengers step from their cars. On the opposite platform, an operator pulls the cord for a three-chime whistle and another train begins chugging toward its next destination: Berlin, capital of the German empire…

Find out Ticket to Ride: Germany, a new stand-alone board game in our well-known Ticket to Ride series.

As in the other Ticket to Ride board games, players will build their own rail network, this time across a new beautifully illustrated board of Germany at end of the 19th century, to connect cities listed on their Destination Tickets. But that’s not all. Competitors need to watch out their opponents who might be trying to reach the same far-flung corners of the German empire and outwit them by collecting valuable Passenger Meeples from the cities faster than they can.

Using the route network previously seen in the Märklin Edition, Ticket to Ride: Germany introduces a new and exclusive passengers rule. Additionally, the game includes short and long Destination Tickets to choose from, making Ticket to Ride: Germany a simple and elegant variant to the original game, with new challenges which will please newcomers and veterans alike.

Ticket to Ride: Germany is a complete board game for 2-5 players and features a map of Germany, 225 colored Train Cars, 110 Train Car Cards, 89 Destination Tickets Cards, 60 Passenger Meeples, 1 Cloth Bag, 5 Scoring Markers, 1 Rules Booklet and a special Globetrotter Bonus Card. It is expected to be available in June in Europe and at the Gen Con in August for the US, at a suggested retail price of €44/$50.
