Dragon Castle Brings Out Your Competitive Zen

10 Comments

I think I may have found a new favorite game! Dragon Castle kind of turns Mahjong on its head by making it competitive. Play revolves around a center board with absolutely beautiful tiles. Here's that great tactile aspect we often talk about. On your turn, you can take tiles to create your own board in front of you. Your goal is to complete shrines and claim the most points. There's tons of strategy and it's easy to learn and fun to play.

Test Your Dective Skills In 13 Clues

10 Comments

If you like a good mystery, then you absolutely need to check out 13 Clues. This is a deduction game where each player is trying to uncover which 3 cards are hidden from their view- in plain sight of everyone else! Game play revolves around paying close attention to what you see and how everyone else answers the questions. It's a race to see who can solve their mystery first. It was super fun, but requires a lot of thinking. You HAVE to pay attention!

Build The Most Contraptions In Gizmos

8 Comments

People, it has marbles! Gizmos is one of the latest games from CMON. If you like Potion Explosion, you will love this game- it's like Potion Explosion on steroids. In this one, players compete to build the most Gizmos to score the most victory points in the end. There's quite a bit of strategy as well as a screw your neighbor aspect in that you really need to pay attention to what your opponents are up to.

Support Your King In Richard The Lionheart

7 Comments

I've been looking forward to playing this again since Gen Con. In Richard the Lionheart, players will work together (kind of) in support of the throne or not. Each turn, you bid your pledge to the cause to advance the trackers. When I mentioned "kind of" before, that's because each player has a secret victory condition that may or may not help the team achieve its goal- but in the end, only one will win.

Please find out if they have any plans for Wrath of Kings! It’s just about the only miniatures game (outside of board games) that I play anymore. It’s terrific but needs more promotion and support!!

Ask them about Wrath of Kings,

and whether we can expect to see that and Dark Age in stores over here in the UK as there still doesn’t seem to be a reliable distributor in place

Leodis games does regular orders and have never let me down, whilst there isn’t enough of the supplier keeping European stock up to date with new releases. I can see why as the interest isn’t there because CMON don’t attend any of the big European conventions. Hopefully it will change or someone could take up the mantle and show off the 2 games over here for them.

Hopefully someone might ask if Xenoshift will be getting a model range and game. The art for it is just great and I would love to buy them. Thank you for all the work you all do to let us know what is going on in game.

Cthulhu is a no for me, shame I was hoping they might continue the blood rage, rising sun theme and maybe go all Western European – King Arthur etc. Or even native American or Egyptian. Suppose it keeps my money safe 🙂 Good work on the blogging as always though! Keep it up

I hope they have some interesting stuff set up for the new Lovecraft title. I love Mythos Games, but the market is already a bit saturated with tentacle monsters.

It’s nice to see that CMON puts out some variety in their games…and doesn’t just exclusively kickstart massive miniature games…although those are cool too.
