Punktown
Call of Cthulhu / Basic-Roleplaying Setting
By Chronicle City

Punktown: An RPG Setting for Call of Cthulhu Sixth Edition and BRP uses Chaosium's famous award-winning system to explore a dark, futuristic world fraught with untold perils created by author Jeffrey Thomas. Imagine Blade Runner, The Fifth Element, Minority Report, Total Recall and the rest of the dark, not-too-distant-future genre. Now add aliens, mutants, robots and Lovecraftian horror. Blend them together, and you get a hint of what Punktown is like.

This reference explores the city itself, the alien races, the weaponry, the creatures, mutations, cybernetics, drugs, sanity (and the inevitable loss thereof), and the options of adding the Cthulhu Mythos into the mix. As written in Thomas' work, the mythos is already there, threatening life as Punktowners know it. If you're a cyberpunk fan, if you're a horror fan, or if you're both, this book is for you.

Keep your eyes wide, your pistol close, and mind the snipes. Those who venture into Punktown never leave the same... if they leave at all.

The Boundary Beyond Mythos Pack
Arkham Horror: The Card Game Expansion
By Fantasy Flight Games

The Boundary Beyond is the second Mythos Pack in The Forgotten Age cycle.

As the thread pulls, the weave unravels. Following the events of Threads of Fate, you are driven from Arkham to Mexico City to find answers about an enigmatic relic and those who pursue it. After a seemingly endless string of failures, it appears the trail has gone cold. But on the very day you are ready to return home, something is wrong—the city has altered. Silver lightning crackles in the sky overhead, and the earth rumbles below your feet. Monstrous entities float just below the clouds and the architecture looks more like something out of a history book than modern Mexico.

The Boundary Beyond scenario skews your idea of reality as the city shifts around you. By using the Explore action to investigate different locations, you may find that time has become destabilized as Modern locations are replaced with Ancient ones. You must discover a way to restore the proper timeline before the city and your fate become completely unalterable. Will you be able to return, or will you become lost in time?

Crossover Pack 7: New Gods
DC Comics Deck Building Game Expansion
By Cryptozoic

The DC Comics Deck-Building Game Crossover Pack series is a way to breathe new life into your game with just a few tweaks. Grab your favorite DC set and instead of using the Super Heroes and Super-Villains from that set, use the ones from this pack instead!

DC Comics Deck-Building Game: Crossover Pack 7 – New Gods features a full set of new playable characters: Orion, Mister Miracle, Big Barda, Kalibak, Granny Goodness, and Darkseid. Instead of the usual Super-Villain stack, you use two stacks of Homeworld cards. Each Homeworld has a special ability that all players can take advantage of, as many of the New Gods have spent time on both sides of the conflict between New Genesis and Apokolips. If you are Darkseid, you seek to conquer New Genesis...but so do your fellow super-villain players. The superheroes, conversely, compete to conquer Apokolips. When either Level 3 Homeworld is conquered, that ends the game and the player with the most VPs wins!

All of the hero and villain cards in this set feature a new keyword: Protector. By simply revealing a Protector from your hand, you may be able to thwart an invasion of your Homeworld.

Wok Star
2-4 players, ages 10+, 45-60+ minutes
By Fowers Games

Wok Star is a cooperative real-time game in which players take on different roles to help grow a Chinese restaurant in a tycoon style game. The clientele of customers is represented by a deck of cards with various Chinese dishes on them. Customers are served one at a time while a 30-second sand timer is running.

Each order requires a combination of ingredients to make. The board is used for tracking the levels of ten prepared ingredients in the kitchen. To prepare more ingredients, players spend dice in different combinations. All players are in charge of different tasks and all must work simultaneously because the timer is running!

At the end of each round, players pool their money and invest in different options to grow their business: acquire new recipes, upgrade preparation cards, or send out coupons to get more customers. The players must have a certain level of profit by the last round to keep the restaurant open and win!

The third edition of Wok Star contains new gameplay wrinkles: You can re-roll dice by "washing dishes" and modify dice by using "hustle". Fortune cubes limit how often you can share dice, and you now have daily goals that you must reach each round or else you lose immediately.

Welcome to the market of beautiful things! As well-to-do citizens in Mercado, players wander around the stalls, always on the lookout for special items to enhance their reputation. Noble shawls, elegant jewellery, or golden trophies — with such a selection, the decision is difficult. But those who do not carry matching coins can also be unlucky because the other players have the same goal and might grab the valuable items from under your nose.

In more detail, different market stalls, each with one product, are laid out as panels in the center of the table. Each player has a personal bag containing different coins. On a turn, you draw three coins from it blind and place them at the market tables of your choice. If a player has paid all the necessary coins of a product, they receive the board and thereby increase their reputation. Some tablets bring extra privileges or seals, others bring counterfeit money that might wander into a bag. Who can buy the most valuable goods?

A birthday party hosted by the mafia boss was roaring fun until the police knocked at the door. While getting away on his private helicopter, he dropped his precious wallet. Now what will you all do with it?

In Wallet, players are the guests rummaging through the wallet looking for an ID (that'll make them seem innocent in the eyes of the law) and some cash (you can't take too much — it will look suspicious!). During your turn, you choose one action: take a card from the wallet, hide a card in the wallet, flip a timer card (bringing the round closer to its end), or buy an ID card. You may also use your special cards to spoil your opponent's play. Strategy, bluff, unexpected events... You need to have a perfect hand as fast as you can — try to be both innocent and rich by the end of the round!

Will you be found guilty or manage to escape the hand of justice with the most cash?

The game takes place over four seasons, starting in spring and ending in winter. At the end of winter, the player who has the most points wins.

Town of Salem: The Card Game
4-36 players, ages 8+
By BlankMedia Games

Town of Salem is a popular online game that got its start on Kickstarter and now we are bringing murder to your tabletop.
Here is how it works.
Each player is dealt a card, face down by the moderator.
This card tells the player their role.
Evil roles are able to kill at night.
And the Good roles must find and lynch the Evil-doers.

During the day, players accuse each other. The player with the most accusations is put on trial to try to prove their innocence. If you can't convince the town, you are lynched at the gallows.

The game ends when one side remains.
You can also change the roles you play with to make the game more challenging and more fun.
The game is really easy to play and kid friendly but hard to master.
With 20 unique roles, every game is a new experience.

You have to decide who to trust and who to lynch in order to survive.

"But, but...who did that?!"

In the card game Who Did It?, players race to get rid of their cards so that they can avoid the blame of owning the animal that pooped. Each game is as fun as it is fast; quickly find your card, be the first to throw it down, then blame someone else! Was it YOUR cat that pooped in the living room? Because it sure wasn't my bunny!

Cataclysm: A Second World War
2-5 players, ages 14+, 90-600+ minutes
By GMT Games

It is the 1930s and the world is still recovering from the Great War and the Great Depression that followed it. A second world war can break out at any time. Can you stop it? Will you start it? Better yet, can you win it?

Cataclysm is not your typical game about World War II. The game begins in 1933, not 1939, and is global in scope. Germany is far from dominating Europe. Japan is on the march in Asia. Every crisis is an unexpected opportunity. There is no hindsight and anything can happen.

Truly grand strategic in scope, Cataclysm requires players to lead nations, not just armies or fleets. You must craft a diplomatic strategy, develop political support for your policies at home, shift your economy to a war footing, and build up the forces you need to deter or vanquish your enemies.
