A failed robbery, the daring of two Hobbit brothers, a terrible crime, the flight of the Elves, the affairs of Wizards, black treachery, an ancient threat - seven stories to be told in the Twilight of the Third Age. Seven adventures need a company of heroes to undertake them.

Wilderland Adventures contains seven ready-to-play adventures, complete scenarios that can be played separately, or as an epic campaign spanning across a number of years. All adventures are set in the years after 2946, and take place in Wilderland.

A wealth of background material expands the setting information contained in the core Guides for Adventures in Middle-earth, the newest fantasy roleplaying game based upon The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, the world-renowned masterpieces written by J.R.R. Tolkien.

Will you dare enter the great forest of Mirkwood, journey under the shadow of the Misty Mountains, visit the house of Beorn, follow the River Anduin down to the Gladden Fields, or climb the Grey Mountains to look upon the Withered Heath?

Wilderland Adventures contains the adventures previously released as Tales from Wilderland for The One Ring Roleplaying Game, fully converted to be compatible with Adventures in Middle-earth and the OGL rules.

Veins of the Earth
Lamentations of the Flame Princess Sourcebook
By LotFP

THE ENDLESS DESCENT
At the deepest point of the dungeon, behind the throne, beyond the rooms where the battles took place, after everything is done and the enemy dead, there is a crack. A black empty space where the wall joins the stone floor, a foot and a half high and three wide. A breeze comes out. You’d never notice it. You could lie on your belly and fit inside.

IT NEVER ENDS
You have existed, up to this point, on the illusion of a plane, bordered by mountains, rivers, seas or the politics of maps, and this life has been a lie. Its borders are made up, its seas are gateways, its mountains are cradles of deep life. There is no plane.

You were raised within a history running back through recorded time, written in ink, carved in stone, scooped from clay, hidden in songs. Your primal myths are an eye-blink of the memory of that place. Your history is a candle burning out.

The real world, the deeper, more true world, is bordered only by light above and fire below, and perhaps not even by that.

When you loathe gold for its weight and count your wealth by a radius of illuminated rock and think yourself lucky to do so, then you have passed into the VEINS OF THE EARTH.

Expertly written and profusely illustrated by the veteran team of Patrick Stuart and Scrap Princess (Deep Carbon Observatory and Fire on the Velvet Horizon), VEINS OF THE EARTH is the most important and comprehensive guide ever published for gaming in the depths of the earth. Included in this essential work:
· A detailed survey of over fifty new monsters and a half dozen cultures that lurk in the Veins.
· Procedures for Referees to generate both small and large-scale maps and locations within.
· Expanded rules for players navigating a realm that has never seen the sun.
· Full descriptions of the different types of light and the different types of dark.
· The worst kinds of fear, madness, and nightmare.

VEINS OF THE EARTH is a setting sourcebook for Lamentations of the Flame Princess: Weird Fantasy Role-Playing and other traditional role-playing games.

Abstract Dungeon
Core Rulebook
By Sneak Attack Press

A dwarven princess on a quest to reclaim her throne.

A brave but dim warrior who decides to become a wizard after finding a wand with a mind of its own.

A talking monkey with a magical bubble pipe who searches for the banana of gold.

You can tell all of these stories and many more when you play Abstract Dungeon. Abstract Dungeon is quick and simple roleplaying game built around a resource spending mechanic. It gives you control over whether and how your character overcome obstacles in your path. The question is not whether you make your roll, but whether you are willing to pay the price.

The biggest difference between Abstract Dungeon and other roleplaying games is that you roll your all your dice at the start or the adventure, then spend your dice to overcome challenges. You can always win, provided you are willing to spend the resources.

You then need to describe how you overcame the challenge based on the source of the die you spent. If you spend a die from your Toughness pool, it could represent anything from punching a goblin in the face to holding your liquor, while spending a die from Intellect could represent casting a spell or presenting a logical argument.

The Dark Eye Adventure

Ticket To Ride: Germany
2-5 players, ages 8+, 45+ minutes
By Days of Wonder

Ticket to Ride: Germany is a standalone game in the Ticket to Ride series. Over the course of the game, players collect cards in order to then claim routes on the game board between two cities. Ideally the players create a network of routes that connect the cities showing on their secret ticket cards. Players score points both for claiming routes and for completing tickets, with incomplete tickets counting against a player's score.

In addition to scoring points for tickets, whenever a player places a route on the board, they claim a passenger from the two cities that form the endpoints for that route (assuming that the passengers have not already been claimed). At the end of the game, whoever has the most passengers of each of the six colours scores 20 points for that colour; whoever has the second most passengers in a colour scores 10 points. Whoever has the most points at the end of the game wins.

Beyond The Black
Tiny Epic Galaxies Expansion
By Gamelyn Games

Your galaxies have expanded to the extent of known space. You overlap with your rivals and fight tooth and nail for fertile planets. Now it is time to extend the horizons. Now it is time to upgrade your ships to the limits of today’s technology, and ready them with the brave pilots. Now it is time to go beyond the deep blackness of space into the truly unknown universe…

In Tiny Epic Galaxies: Beyond the Black, players have access to four new ships that they can upgrade their original ships to. To do this, they will need to hire specialized pilots. There are many pilots to hire, each possessing a unique special ability. Pilots are also specialized in what ships they are trained to use. Hiring the right pilot for a ship reduces that pilot's cost. The more ships a pilot is specialized in, the weaker their special ability is. Pilots are hired by spending unused dice that correspond with the four different ship types, and are worth victory points during play. Pilots are shuffled into a deck and splayed out like planets.

Additionally, Tiny Epic Galaxies: Beyond the Black introduces a press-your-luck exploration option for players. This allows players to venture beyond the planets and into deep space where they might encounter dwarf planets worth victory points, or rare materials that yield resources... or they may encounter cosmic threats like solar storms, black holes, and even supernovas. Either way, exploring deep space provides a player with exploration badges. These badges are tallied up at the end of the game and players are rewarded bonus victory points based on who has the most of a certain badge type. They are four types of badges to collect.

Tiny Epic Galaxies: Beyond the Black also comes with additional planets and new and exciting secret missions to explore!

Medici : The Card Game
2-6 players, ages 10+, 30+ minutes
By Grail Games

Medici: The Card Game is a new design by Reiner Knizia that shares the setting and feel of the classic Medici board game, without using that game's auction mechanisms.

In 15th century Florence, players try to acquire the most valuable goods for their merchant ships by drawing 1-3 cards from a common deck each turn. After drawing, the active player must take the final card they drew and may select one or both of the previous two cards drawn (if available). They then load these commodity cards on their boat. Cards that are not taken remain available to future players. Once a player's boat is full (seven cards with two players, five cards with 3-6 players), they are out of the round and the day is scored.

Players score points for the value of their ships' holds, but also for the number of commodities of each type that they have stored in their warehouse. The highest earning merchant over three days wins the game. Some cards do not take up space on ships, while others contribute to the value of a hold, but cannot be stored in warehouses.

Nights
Sunrise City Expansion
By Game Salute

Sunrise City: Nights!, the first full expansion for this much loved game. Isaias Vallejo, the designer, set out to bring a little bit of the night-life and casino flavor to the base game and to add a couple of fun mechanics to what many have called a "New Classic" board game.

The Sunrise City: Nights! expansion gives you more of what you love most in the base game.
· The 16 new Role Cards give you more customizable player powers and more options for bending the rules to your advantage.
· Two new meeple Roles have a familiar feel but their ability to roam through the city gives you new options to block your opponents.

The silver Benchmark Tokens are worth 5pts each so you'll never run out of stars.
Nights! also introduces two new game systems to enhance the game and add a casino-feel to your city-building adventure.
· Each player starts the game with a set of five special One-Zone Building (OZB) Tiles that they can play over the course of the game. They play just like any other Building Tile but their size lets them fill in isolated zones or fit neatly onto the edge of a growing skyscraper. OZBs also present new scoring methods based on the current configuration of the city so their potential effect on your score and the city itself, is different each time they're played.
· The Fortune Die is a six-sided die with the red, green, blue and yellow on four sides and purple on two sides. Certain Role Cards and new Building Tiles use the Fortune Die to create a casino-feel with probability-base rewards.

If you’re able to be the richest mobster at the end of the fourth act, you’ll become the new Don. Enjoy it while you can. It’s never long before a new young mobster will come gunning for you and you might end up facedown in the Hudson.

Cartagena 2nd Edition
2-5 players, ages 8+, 45+ minutes
By Rio Grande Games

Cartagena takes as its theme the famous 1672 pirate-led jailbreak from the fortress of Cartagena. Each player has a group of six pirates, and you want to be the first to have all six escape through the tortuous underground passage that connects the fortress to the port, where a sloop is waiting for them.

To move a pirate, you need to play a card from your hand. Each card bears one of six symbols (gun, rum, parrot, etc.), and when you play a card, you move one of your pirates forward to the next matching symbol in the tunnel, leapfrogging over matching symbols where another pirate already stands. The only way to get more cards, however, is to move backwards; more specifically, you move one of your pirates backwards to the first space that holds one or two pirates, drawing one or two cards after doing so. Each turn, you take 1-3 actions, whether moving forward or backward or both. When you move a pirate to the end of the track, it jumps on the sloop where it must await the other pirates in its crew. With every step toward victory, though, you have fewer and fewer pirates to move each turn, possibly locking you in to actions you don't want, so be sure to plan ahead and not leave yourself empty-handed!

This version of Cartagena includes the classic base game mixed with Cartagena 2. The Pirate's Nest and several new variants.

Adapt: The goal of Xia is to become the most famous captain.

Between Two Cities: Capitals expands the base game by adding several new challenges: landscapes, districts, and civic building tiles. This is not a standalone expansion; you need the original Between Two Cities game to play. In more detail:
• Landscape mats give each city a unique layout to build on and around.

Virulence: An Infectious Card Game
2-5 players, ages 8+, 10+ minutes
By Genius Games

Each round, players secretly choose one Virus card from their hand, place it face down on the table, then simultaneously flip these Virus cards to reveal each player's (and thus each virus') virulence. In order from the highest to the lowest virulence, players then take turns selecting from the available Viral Component cards, each awarding points in a variety of ways, or allowing that player to build their hand of Virus Cards allowing them to win critical components later.

Virus is addictively simple and competitive because it combines blind bidding/bluffing, with engine building, a bit of luck and, most importantly, it can played be taught in 30 seconds, and played 10 minutes.

From the creators of Cyanide & Happiness comes a card game where players compete to finish an awful comic strip.

The creators said:
"Someone on the Internet once told us that making stick figure comics is easy as hell, and that we were ugly and stupid.
They were right on all counts. So, after crying for a few hours, we created the Random Comic Generator which since its inception in 2014 has entertained millions with its computer-generated comedy.
After a few weeks of playing with the Random Comic Generator, we started to wonder if its hundreds of random panels might lend themselves to a card game, where you compete against your friends to finish a comic with a funny punchline. So we printed out all of the RCG panels and started playing with them."

Draw 7 cards. The deck plays the first card, select a Judge to play the second, then everyone selects a third card to create a three panel comic strip. The Judge picks a winner.

The game includes a deck of 250 unique panel cards - that’s 15.4 million combinations of comics!

By Snowdale Design

It is an age of great discoveries. New and wonderful items find their ways into the hands of the greatest merchants. And if there ever is a place those traders love, it is the town of Dale.

There’s an extraordinary guild in the Dale founded by the greatest merchants. The tricky part is getting the membership since one must win the annual trading competition to be invited to the guild.

Notable animalfolk merchants from all over the world have gathered in the town to take part in the event. Everyone has only one goal in mind – to be celebrated as the winner and the newest member of the legendary guild.

In Dale of Merchants, players take the roles of those participating merchants learning new techniques, trading goods, and managing their stock. The player who first manages to complete their astounding merchant stall wins the game and gets access to the guild!

Dale of Merchants 2
2-4 players, ages 10+, 30+ minutes
By Snowdale Design

The world has grown smaller. Civilizations around different continents have established independent free trade cities in order to ease trading between distant lands. One of those cities, Yengzuh, is now looking for a new ruler – a new Trade Master.

The post is only open every ten years and the selection of the said individual is no small task. It’s handled by holding a trading competition as it’s in everyone’s best interest to get the best merchant chosen for the job.

All the participating merchants are prestigious, but the competition also tests their ability to deal with unexpected situations. After all, the winner will be responsible of keeping the global prices more fair and stable for years to come.

There are only twelve free trade cities in the world. Yengzuh near Pandala is one of the oldest. The Guild of Extraordinary Traders from Dale promoted the founding of the city after the trade wars in Asia had spread too wide. The city’s harbour has tens of great ships all the time, loading and unloading passengers and cargo.

In Dale of Merchants 2, players take the roles of those participating merchants learning new techniques, trading goods, and managing their stock. The player who first manages to complete their astounding merchant stall wins the game and gets access to the guild!

Dale of Merchants 2 contains six new decks and can be played by itself or combined with the decks from Dale of Merchants. The game includes a new ruleset for four players that introduces team battle! These new rules greatly enhance the four-player experience by adding cooperation between teammates and cutting downtime. These rules can also be used with the original game's six decks.

Not sure why Joking Hazard is on this list. It has been out for a year or more now. Was that spot on the list meant to be an expansion for it instead?

It's only just appeared in UK retail stores this week and I was working off the new releases distribution list from Esdevium Games (one of Europes biggest - if not Europe's biggest - distributors).
