Winter Kingdom

Winter Kingdom

Donald X. Vaccarino, you know, the Dominion guy, has also made an excellent game called Kingdom Builder, a rather themeless affair where you lay down settlements on different regions on a modular map for points. The theme is the only thing lacking in the game though. Now it's time for a sequel, Winter Kingdom. Let's have a look.

Dominion Menagerie

Dominion Menagerie

Someone said to me that the last expansion of the deck builder Dominion was coming out. I believed them. Well, I believed the part where there would be an expansion was coming out, but I laughed at the notion that it was gonna be the last one.

Marvel Legendary: New Mutants

Marvel Legendary: New Mutants

The next upcoming expansion to Marvel Legendary is "The New Mutants". This refers to a group of X-men, who has previously appeared in Legendary as special bystanders in the X-Men expansion.

New Mutants members Magik and Cannonball have already appeared in the game as playable characters in Secret Wars, Vol. 1 expansion, and the X-Men expansion respectively, so our guess is that we can rule those heroes out. This is probably going to be a 100-card set, given the material.
With that in mind, here are our speculations:
Here is the confirmed list of heroes:
