New Arrivals for February 14, 2017
What better way to celebrate the love on Valentine’s Day than with a new two-player game about flowers, lilypads and the winds of spring? Check out Haru Ichiban and our other new arrivals for the week!
In Haru Ichiban, or “The Wind of Spring”, two apprentice gardeners compete to use this wind to their advantage to create harmonious patterns of their blossoms upon the lilypads. Use your hand of buds and blossoms to plant on, shift and flip lilypads – all in an attempt to out-garden your opponent!
Gloom in Space
Space is the worst — empty, black, airless, awash in radiation, and dotted with immense clods of flaming plasma. But just because it sounds bad to us, doesn’t mean everyone feels the same. In Gloom in Space, you make your rag-tag band or star-faring heroes miserable, then kill them. Fights with their surprise fathers, meddling with monoliths, getting caught in compactors, and orbital nukes…. In the end, the most miserable crew wins!
Gruff is a tactical card game about mutated monster goats. Create a customized team of monster goats called “Gruffs” led by a shepherd, then take turns playing ability cards and declaring attacks. After an attack is declared your opponent takes his turn and may dodge or block your attack then declare his own attack. You win the game by crushing through the enemy line of gruffs and killing the opposing shepherd.
T.I.M.E. Stories is a narrative game wherein players take on the role of T.I.M.E Agents, protecting humanity by preventing temporal faults and paradoxes. As temporal agents, you and your team will be sent into the bodies of beings from different worlds or realities to attempt the missions given to you. Fail a mission? Take what you’ve learned at go back for another loop through the story.
