Marvel Legendary: Into the Cosmos

Anachrony: Future Imperfect

News posted June 09, 2020 by Jay Kay

We covered the Anachrony: Fractures of Time Kickstarter a year back, and in this Kickstarter, there were a couple of expansion modules included as stretch goals. Those are now contained in this box called Anachrony: Future Imperfect. Let's have a look.

Marvel Legendary: Into the Cosmos

News posted May 10, 2020 by Jay Kay

The new mutants are already among us, tearing stuff up. The next upcoming expansion for Marvel Legendary will be Into the Cosmos.

The set will probably be a 200 card set like Revelations, which is the new size of the Big Box expansions.

We suspect there will be characters linked to the Guardians of the Galaxy and other loose folk from around the galaxy.

Drakborgen on Kickstarter

News posted May 05, 2020 by Jay Kay

Good news for our Swedish readers! The old classic Drakborgen is getting reprinted via Kickstarter. Too bad there will not be an English version at this time. Anyway, Drakborgen is also known as Dungeonquest which is quite popular even though it's quite inferior to the original.

Dominion Menagerie

News posted March 22, 2020 by Jay Kay

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.

That expansion in question was Dominion: Guilds which was the 8th one. Here we are a couple of years later and now it's time for the 13th expansion; Dominion: Menagerie. Let's have a quick look.

Spirit Island: Jagged Earth

News posted February 22, 2020 by Jay Kay

An expansion for the awesome coop game Spirit Island is on its way. It's called Jagged Earth and like expected, it will contain new spirits, power cards, adversaries, etc. But it will also contain some new stuff, like badland tokens, which is a new way to fight the invaders.

Marvel Legendary: New Mutants

News posted January 27, 2020 by Jay Kay

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:

Small World: Sky Islands

Review posted December 22, 2019 by Jay Kay

Do you like Small World? Did you stop buying the expansions a couple of years back, because there were simple too many of them? Well, perhaps it's time to remedy that.

Marvel Legendary: Heroes of Asgard

News posted November 11, 2019 by Jay Kay

The next expansion in line for the Marvel: Legendary series is Heroes of Asgard
This expansion will come out on February 26th, 2020 and will mark the 20th expansion to the game, which is pretty crazy. 

Marvel Legendary: World war Hulk

Review posted October 26, 2019 by Jay Kay

In Legendary: World War Hulk, the 16th expansion for Marvel Legendary, the focus is, surprisingly enough, around the Hulk.
Kidding aside, this expansion lets the players dive into the Planet Hulk and World War Hulk storylines from Marvel Comics, which obviously will bring a lot of new characters into the Marvel: Legendary Deck Building Game, and also blurs out the lines between the "good" guys and the "bad" guys. Hulk is both. If you don't know what I mean go read the comics!
Mechanic-wise there is some news as well. We are gonna check those out, but please note that this review assumes you have played Marvel: Legendary before.

Marvel Legendary: SHIELD

News posted October 16, 2019 by Jay Kay

Another Marvel Legendary expansion is on the horizon, with a focus on S.H.I.E.L.D. It's a small set with 100 cards and it will feature new heroes, masterminds, villain groups, etc. Perhaps the biggest news is the special S.H.I.E.L.D. officers to mix in with Maria Hill.

Res Arcana expansion "Lux et Tenebrae"

This time, we will have heroes like Scarlet WitchQuicksilver and War Machine joining our ranks to battle the mastermind The Hood, among others.

Great Western Trail: Rails to the North

Review posted November 28, 2018 by Jay Kay

This expansion revolves around a new extension board which contains new cities like Chicago, Detroit, and New York City, amongst others. The new board overlaps the uppermost part of the original board, covering the old ones.

Be advised that business is much more difficult on this rails, so players will want to take advantage of friendly hospitality by establishing branchlets and helping form towns. In addition to the new railway system, players will also discover new station master tiles, private buildings, and an expanded player board to offer more strategic depth in their decision making.

7 Wonders: Armada review

News posted November 25, 2018 by Jay Kay

Check our review of the new expansion to 7 wonders, Armada. You can find it in the review section. The review assumes you have played 7w before.

For you who might have stumbled in here without knowing what 7w is, we can tell you this much; It's not Risk, it's not Clue, it's certainly not Monopoly. 7 wonders is actually a game worth playing.
It's a cardgame that plays for about 30 minutes, even with 7 players, and at the same time has alot of deph. It's simply amazing, so do yourself a favour and go buy it.

7 Wonders: Armada

Review posted November 25, 2018 by Jay Kay

This 7 Wonders expansion allows you to build fleets of Ships to conquer the seas. New Armada and Island cards enrich the game and increase the interaction between players.

The flow of the game is slightly changed, but the victory conditions remain identical to those of the base game of 7 Wonders.

At the beginning of each Age, the players each get a hand of 8 cards. They will play an extra card during each Age. At any time a Red, Yellow, Green, or Blue card is played, the player will be able to move the ship of the same color one space, and access to various advantages.
