Z-Man Games announce Cryo

worker-placement game for two to four players, Cryo takes place on a frozen planet where an explorative mission has just gone terribly wrong. Players find themselves in command of a colony ship as it plummets to the surface of an icy planet. Way off course and unable to restart the engines, players will need to do whatever they can in order to survive on the desolate tundra.

 

​Red Rising

 

Stonemaier Games have announced a Red Rising.

As you navigate through a dystopian world of dangerous intrigue in Red Rising, a board game adaptation of the sci-fi book series co-designed by the creator of Scythe, Jamey Stegmaier.

An upcoming game for one to six players, Red Rising takes place in a science-fiction world that sees its citizens sorted into 14 different castes - each one having access to certain privileges and rights. During the board game, players will become members of a house that has ambitions of improving its social standing and rising through the ranks to the higher castes. Should they gather enough support from followers and influence from important individuals, players will have to decide whether to tear down the system or take their place in the highest coloured caste, the Golds.

Throughout the game, players will use their hand of five cards to gradually collect enough allies needed to advance to a higher caste. On their turn, players can place one of their cards at a location on the game board, thereby gaining that location’s effect. The player then takes a card from another location - which will be displayed face-up - or from the main deck, which remains facedown during the course of the entire game, and adds it to their hand.

Lasting Tales

Blacklist Games is thrilled to announce Lasting Tales, a cooperative tabletop miniatures game for 1–5 players. Designed by acclaimed game designer Mark Latham (The Walking Dead: All Out War, The Elder Scrolls: Call to Arms), Lasting Tales lets players create their own heroes and embark on an epic campaign, linking game sessions together to create a rich story set in a classic fantasy world. ​

 

Inspired by pen-and-paper roleplaying games and tabletop skirmish games, Lasting Tales is a fully cooperative experience in which every player is the hero in their own tale, battling the enemy on their own or with their friends, and crafting their legend through the variety of events they’ll stumble upon during their journeys.​

 

The Lasting Tales book contains all the rules you need to play the game, including hero creation, adversary profiles, campaign rules, scenarios, as well as a full narrative campaign—or Tale—and pre-made heroes to get new players right into the action! A game of Lasting Tales will also require a handful of standard six-sided dice, a tape measure or ruler, and miniatures. Fortunately, Lasting Tales is a miniatures-agnostic game, meaning players can use any fantasy miniatures in their collection.
