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.
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.
The expansion in a nutshell:
Just in case you have missed it, another expansion for the excellent board game Terraforming Mars, is out now in a store near you. Go pick it up already.
