Puerto Rico Expansions

Puerto Rico Expansions

Rio Grande games are releaseing two expansions for Puerto Rico! This is clearly a new direction Rio Grande is taking, ressurecting old games instead of spamming out Dominion expansions (perhaps we have finally seen the last one).

The expansions are The new buildings and The Nobles, both which has been released before, in 2004 and 2009 respectively.

Athens: The Birth of Politics

Athens: The Birth of Politics

Up and Away Games had recently released Athens: the Birth of Politics, in this game players  struggle with Persians, Spartans and their own people as they build their empire. Cooperate and compete to manage its fortunes, especially its politics, wars and government. 

Players must constantly balance personal advancement against the security of the state. They trade and fight to build up the empire, vie for power in the Assembly and on the battlefield. But to grow in size and power only attracts the unwelcome attention of rivals, not just your opponents, but also foreign powers like Persia, Syracuse, Thebes and most deadly of all, Sparta.

Roll for the Galaxy: Rivalry

Roll for the Galaxy: Rivalry

The highly anticipated second expansion for Roll for the Galaxy is being released some time in Mars/April 2019.

MSRP $80, which is 20$ more than the base game, and the designer has commented this like so;

There will be plenty of content; a new die type, new start factions, home worlds, and game tiles, new player screens, all new 10 player dice, a dozen customizable dice with over 200 plug-in die faces in 48 different type, 62 Roll dice in 10 different types, 5 sheets of tiles and markers, 8 sheets for the deal mat, new phase strips, plus wooden disks. Alot of stuff.
We recognize the price is high, especially for an expansion. If we divided it into three separate expansions, then the total would probably be around ~$125, instead of $80, and we wouldn't be able to provide unified Player screens or save some cost on components shared between the Deal and Orb games.

The Lord of the Rings: Journeys in Middle-earth

The Lord of the Rings: Journeys in Middle-earth

Fantasy Flight has announced The Lord of the Rings: Journeys in Middle-earth, another card game set in Middle Earth 3rd age. Why should we care?
Well first of all, it's Fantasy Flight. Second of all, it's Lord of the Rings.

Joking aside, the game looks solid from where we sit; a Mansion of Madness meets Lord of the Rings situation, which can be nothing else than awesome.

War of the Worlds: The New Wave

War of the Worlds: The New Wave

A new, exciting card game is currently on Kickstarter; War of the Worlds: The New Wave designed by the fairly unknown designer Denis Plastinin and is being published by Grey Fox Games

The game events unfold several years after the original 'War of the Worlds’ story by Herbert Wells.
Extraterrestrial invasion occurs again, but this time the Martians arrived on a giant spaceship which lands in one of the backwater districts in Scotland.
During the game one player commands the alien forces, and the other one becomes a leader of UK self-defense units. The main objective of the invaders is to completely annihilate the population of Great Britain, while the opposite side needs to deal enough damage to the Martian army.

The game is played with 2 asymmetrical decks of cards, a playing board, tokens and miniatures.
