This Week: Oceans

Enter a vast, underwater cosmos: a mysterious interconnected world of tentacles, sharp teeth, and black ink, where your survival depends on your ability to adapt in a continually changing environment. But this is just on the surface—Lurking below the surface lie mysteries so bizarre they hardly seem natural.

Oceans is a stand-alone game for 2 – 4 players in the highly acclaimed Evolution product line. Oceans depicts the interconnected ecosystem of marine life and combines it with the powerful mysteries of the unknown. The Deep is a deck of nearly 100 unique traits you’ll discover over the course of many games. These over-powered traits represent the unknown: the undiscovered wonders of the deep ocean.

Venture into the deep at your own risk!

~~This Week: Arkham Horror Final Hour~~
You arrived too late to stop the loathsome rite, and a monstrous, transdimensional Ancient One tears through reality. An iridescent rift slashes across the darkened skies, heralding the nightmarish creatures that pour into the hallowed buildings of Miskatonic University. As howls and screams cut through the night, there is only one path left for your fearless investigators—hold back the horde long enough to somehow reverse the summoning.

Arkham Horror: Final Hour is a fully cooperative, fast-paced board game for one to four players. An endless tide of monsters sweeps across the Miskatonic University campus, and you must hold them back, all while searching desperately for the ritual components you need to put an end to the insanity. Playable in under 60 minutes, your fate depends on the cooperation between you and your fellow investigators. The odds against you are astronomical, but if you don’t succeed, this will indeed be the final hour for Arkham… and the world.

~~This Week: Tsuro Phoenix Rising~~
Long ago, a vengeful god stole the stars from the night sky. To illuminate the night, hopeful people sent glowing paper lanterns floating toward the heavens. Out of nowhere, clever magical phoenixes appeared, soaring through the sky. As they flew from lantern to lantern, their enchanted touch changed the lanterns into new stars!

Tsuro: Phoenix Rising is a new entry in the classic Tsuro series. The game shares a bond with the foundations of the original: play tiles, move pawns, and stay in play, but it introduces a revolutionary board that allows for the double-sided tiles to flip and rotate throughout the game, creating diverging paths and opening up new strategies.

Featuring gorgeous phoenix miniatures, beautiful lantern tokens, and unique gameplay elements such as life tokens that allow your phoenix to be reborn from the ashes once per game, Tsuro: Phoenix Rising is a new chapter in the legacy of Tsuro!

~~This Week: Walls of York~~

The king has decided to found a new city. Buildings are already going up, but without protection from the vicious Viking raids happening all over the country, the city will not last long. The King has called in the best architects in the land to enclose the city. But only one will create the best layout and be given the title of chief architect.

In Walls of York, players must use the plastic wall pieces to construct a defensive barrier around the buildings on their city map. Each turn, a player rolls the building die, that dictates which types of walls are to be used. The players must enclose their city, including the required buildings from the King’s decree — but players must beware for the Vikings will come and lay waste at the end of the first age, forcing players to build their walls anew in the second age.
