In the Box Breaking Matt Takes a look at the Forcemaster expansion for Mage Wars Academy.  This expansion focuses on the use of telekinetic powers by the mage.

The Forcemaster is one of the more unique mages in the game.  Which can make her a little tricky to play against.

I caught up with Tony Gullotti from Arcane Wonders at Origins Game Fair, where we played Spoils of War, and talked about the new Force Mage and Viral.

The Force Mage is quite sexy. Spoils of War is a great bluffing game – better with beer. Viral is very intriguing at this point.

Onitama is a two player abstract game based on the complexity of a Martial Arts fight. With a random set up the players use their cards to move and outwit their opponent.  This wrestling match relies on the card players were dealt at the beginning of the game.

 

 

It is part of the Dice Tower Essentials line.

Speechless is the new party game from Arcane Wonders.  It’s for 3 to 8 players and you act out 6 words in a minute and a half while others secretly give their best guess.

My words can’t describe what you’ll watch.

It’s a blast!
