The Village Square: February 11, 2019


Happy birthday!
Celebrating their 25th year, Gamewright has announced a slew of new titles for release at this week’s Toy Fair New York, including a dice version of their popular Sushi Go…Sushi Roll!

Boldly go
Stronghold Games’ The Boldest releases this month. Explore the Iron Valley in this imaginative hero team building adventuring game from Noria designer Sophia Wagner.

New boardgame, I presume
Bumuntu is now available from Wizkids Games. Explore the Congo and seek favor from the animals.

Still a planet
Alderac Entertainment will release their first expansion to Space Bace March 29. But it’s more than mere expansion. Yes, there are new ships, but The Emergence of Shy Pluto introduces the Saga Expansions, which add narrative based scenarios to the game.

Don’t be so judgmental
Osprey Games in now taking pre-orders for Judge Dredd: The Cursed Earth. Based on The Lost Expedition system from Peer Sylvester and with original artwork from Dredd illustrators Rufus Dayglo and Dan Cornwell, you can play solo, cooperatively or competitively.

Et tu?
In March, Indie Boards and Cards will release Senators, a design of “adversarial bidding” in Roman politics, power and wealth.

Have fun defending the castle
March 6, Fireside Games will release My First Castle Panic, an even friendlier kid adaptation of their popular family coop castle defense game.

Now we’re connecting with gas
Capstone Games’ successfully funded Pipeline will release this August. Connect pipes and use the benefits of valuable employees to deliver oil in this spatial reasoning design.

Oh the treasures you can see
Dr. Finn’s Games announced a new release for May/June of 2019. In Waters of Nereus, players use simultaneous action selection to lead a ship of exploration – exploring for treasure!
