The Village Square: November 16, 2018


Magic: The Partnership
WizKids announces a continued partnership with Wizards of the Coast to produce a line of high quality miniatures and a board game based on the Magic: The Gathering IP and universe.

Wizards and paladins and decks, oh my!
Dragonfire is now available in stores from Catalyst Game Labs. The D&D based deck-building game can also be expanded with special game packs to increase the number of races, magical items, encounters and monsters (some available now, others in the coming months).

The mystery unfolds
Three new Unlock! Mystery Adventures are now available from Asmodee. The Nautilus’ Traps, The House on the Hill, and The Tonipal’s Treasure bring all new stories and puzzles to the same series’ popular and exciting mechanics.

Night at the zoo
What happens at night when all the patrons have left the zoo? An animal martial arts throwdown! And now you’ll be able to throwdown some dice in Wizkids’ new Kung Fu Zoo, a battle game between gorillas, zebras, cheetahs and elephants. Releases in February 2018.

At your command
IDW Games’ latest title from their partnership with Atari will release in March 2018.  Missile Command is a social game of diplomacy and destruction for 3-6 players.

A game in your pocket
Grand Gamers Guild releases Pocket Ops next month. The unique, Tic-Tac-Toe framed 2-player game involves area control, outmaneuvering and special powers as you battle for control of the ominous Doomsday Device!

Digital Talisman
Nomad Games announced a new partnership with Asmodee Digital to enhance and expand Talisman: Digital Edition. The two corroborated previously on digital Smash Up.

I have lots of kids. Board games help me connect with them, while still retaining my sanity...relatively speaking.
