The Siege of Runedar

Game Designer Reiner Knizia has announced a new title called The Siege of Runedar. This is a co-op board game for one to four players, set in an ancient castle marking the entrance to a series of mines rich in gold. 

 For many centuries, the local dwarf population ventured into the mines of Runedar to extract the precious metals within, until it was believed to have been exhausted. However, a recent expedition has seen the discovery of a new vein of gold, which the adventuring group was able to acquire some of before returning to the surface - only to find that they have been intercepted by an entire army.

In the deckbuilding game, players must work together to defend the fortress against the forces of orcs, goblins and trolls long enough to dig a tunnel to safety. The attacking warriors seek to obtain the newly acquired gold from the players’ party, storming the walls in waves that the they must stave off from afar - using their ranged weapons - and up close with melee attacks. Should the players successfully keep the attackers at bay long enough to tunnel their way out of Runedar, then they win the game.

Camel Up Spin Off:- Off Season

 

 

 

Games publisher Pretzl games have announced a new spin off game from Camel Up.

 

Camel Up: Off Season is a board game for three to five players based in the same Saharan setting as the original family game, but this time focusing on a desert market rather than racing. When the camels aren’t tearing their way across the track, they’re pulling caravans heaped with goods designed to be sold in the weeks where the races remain quiet.

Throughout the game, players must bid on who gets to choose from the available markets first. Each market can carry between three and six different items - ranging from carpets and vases to dates and other fruit - which players will be able to select if they’re able to successfully win the bidding phase. Every bidding phase will have a set of rules which are displayed on the back of the goods card sitting on the top of the deck.

The release date for Camel Up: Off Season is set for June 2021.

Alien RPG: 

Chariot of the Gods

Alien RPG

Published by Free League Publishing 

                

The ALIEN tabletop roleplaying game is a beautifully illustrated 392-page full-color hardcover book, both presenting the world of ALIEN in the year 2183 and a fast and effective ruleset designed specifically to enhance the ALIEN experience. The game can be played in two distinct game modes:

Cinematic play is based on pre-made scenarios that emulate the dramatic arc of an ALIEN film. Designed to be played in a single session, this game mode emphasizes high stakes and fast and brutal play. You are not all expected to survive.

Campaign play is designed for longer continuous play with the same cast of player characters over many game sessions, letting you explore the ALIEN universe freely, sandbox style.

The rules of the game are based on the acclaimed Year Zero Engine, used in award-winning games such as Tales from the Loop and Mutant: Year Zero, but adapted and further developed to fully support and enhance the core themes of ALIEN: horror and action in the cold darkness of space.

Clash of Deck : a real FREE-TO-PLAY Card Game!

 

Fight other Sorcerer-Lords in this card game which includes two play modes: Duel and Solo! FREE GAME.

 Clash of Deck is a card-based combat game for 1-2 players with artwork from Studio Rexard,  Create your 8 unit army and battle other Lord-Sorcerers to destroy their Strongholds!

Clash of Deck is a two-player, expendable game with many twist.

Released on a monthly basis, the game sees the player summon creature on each side of two bridges on two different lanes and attack their opponent to try and destroy first their watchtower, and then their castle. To do so they first must dispatch opposing creatures.
When a player suffers damage, they move their watchtower/castle card from left to right in their hand. If the building reaches the rightmost position, it is destroyed.
Since the amount of cards in one's hand is the amount of mana the player gets at the beginning of their turn, and defeated creatures go back into your hand on the rightmost position, knowing which creature to play and which creature to let die is key to managing both your position on the board and your life total.

Lasting Tales: A Fantasy Miniatures Game

 

A cooperative tabletop miniatures game by Mark Latham. Featuring a new line of fantasy miniatures!

Lasting Tales is 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
