The Village Square: January 28, 2019


Not a Viking this time
In twist, CMON will release Walls of York this first quarter, in which you try to protect yourself from Vikings, not play them, in the new dice-activated 3D city building game.

It’s a skill
Wizkids announced Kodachi, a card game about being a ninja. Do you really even need to know more?!

And old game with new tricks
Rio Grande Games has announced some new expansions for the classic Euro Puerto Rico.

To the stacks
Next Move Games announced Tuki, a 3D stacking dexterity game from the designer of Ubongo.

Prepare for battle
Next month Grey Fox Games releases Bushido, a 2-player card and dice combat game with drafting to prepare your warrior for the duel.

Argh, me booty!
Forbidden Games has recently released their new title Pirates!, a hand and resource management race game with some light deck-building.

Jupiter Ascending
This February 20, Lucky Duck Games will partner with Sorry We Are French to release an English version of Ganymede. The card and resource management game tasks players with sending settlers to colonize the gas giant’s moon.

Scum and Villainy
Little Rock Games and Mercury Games will release Galactic Scoundrels next month. The space western card game emphasizes story telling while players bluff, interact and complete missions.

From a seed
Also next month, Pencil First Games will release the Herbaceous Sprouts, a follow up, completely separate title to the other one you might have heard of.
