Check out these exciting arrivals for game-and-toy-lovers of all ages, new this week at Board Game Barrister!

Pass the Blame: The Party Game for Irresponsible AdultsPasstheBlame
Concoct the best excuse to get out of unfortunate situations! Maybe there’s a giant slice missing from the birthday cake, or your friend’s collection of vintage action figures was mistakenly donated to the holiday toy drive. Write down who is to blame and why, then score points based on the best and worst excuse.

Copy of Wonkypic
In Wonky, players try to get rid of their cards by stacking blocks whose shapes are… a little wonky. Set up the blocks in the right way, and you’ll make someone else take a spill! That means they’re stuck with more cards, and their path to victory is blocked


Star Wars X-Wing: Wave Seven
At long last, your X-Wing reinforcements have arrived! The K-Wing, Kihraxz Fighter, TIE Punisher and Hound’s Tooth have landed at the Barrister and are ready to augment your next squad list. (Unfortunately, our Greenfield location is still waiting on a box of Hound’s Tooth ships, which are listed for delivery tomorrow, Thursday 8/27/15)

 Superfight! Decks: Anime, Challenge & Walking Dead
Keep your arguments fresh with these three new Superfight expansions, introducing the cards you’ll need if you want to pit Goku against Daryl Dixon in a game of Quidditch! Or perhaps you’d prefer Ash Ketchum vs. Rick Grimes in a battle for the Iron Throne.

Recruit heroes and villains to defeat your opponents in this Superhero collectible card game! This game includes Characters, Equipment, Locations and Plot Twists from the Marvel universe, all of which can be combined for one big brawl.

Your genius could have been such a boon to humanity, but everyone called called you mad! Maybe they were right… Nefarious is a quick-playing game in which the players race to build inventions like a freeze ray, cloaking device, or robotic pet before their opponents can do the same.
