odysseyOdyssey: Wrath of Poseidon

$39.90

 

The war is over, and your ships are trying to sail back to your homeland after a long absence. To do so, you must beg forgiveness of the wrathful sea god, Poseidon. You need to reach the Sacred Island to make offerings and prayers to the gods…but the irascible Poseidon will use all his powers to prevent you from getting there!

 

As one of up to four players commanding the Greek ships, you must sail through endless storms, blind to all around you, trying to gather clues to your whereabouts to stay on course.

 

As Poseidon, you throw powerful storms against the sailors, driving them off-course and confounding them, so they can’t reach the Sacred Island in time.

 

The game uses two boards, hidden from each other. The Poseidon player uses special tiles to secretly move one or all the ships on his game board, which shows the real position of the ships, giving information to the sailors about what they see around them. The navigators have to guess where they are, moving their ships on their own game board based on their deductions, as they trace their course to the Sacred Island. Multiple game boards enhance replayability; special overlays are included to make the game easier or harder, according to the players’ preferences.

 

2-5 players

Ages 13+

30+ minute play time

 

Contains:

1 Rule book

2 Game boards

1 Punched board

8 Plastic ships

majorWarmachine: Cygnar: Major Markus “Siege” Brisbane – Warcaster

$17.99

 

A professional soldier with more field experience than virtually any other warcaster in the Cygnaran Army, Major Markus Brisbane is famous among Cygnaran troops for his ability to lead from the front and infamous among his enemies for his ability to triumph. It has been said there is no strategic obstacle the man cannot overcome, nor is there any wall in western Immoren that can stand against him.

 

Major Markus “Siege” Brisbane comes in a blister (PIP 31098). A player may field one Major Markus “Siege” Brisbane in a Cygnar army.

 

SPECIAL NOTE: PIP 31098 contains the same stat cards as PIP 31032. The model in this blister represents the same figure in the game. PIP 31098 replaces PIP 31032. However, the model in PIP 31098 is a new sculpt and therefore looks different from the model in PIP 31032.

 

Contains:

1 Major Markus “Siege” Brisbane

2 color stat cards

 

Miniatures are supplied unpainted and assembly may be required.

missionMachine of Death: The Game of Creative Assassination

$40.00

 

Machine of Death: The Game of Creative Assassination is a storytelling game set in a world in which a machine can predict how a person will die with 100% accuracy with only a small blood sample. However, the machine delights in being vague and twisted. A card reading “Old Age” could mean you die in your sleep at age 120, or it could mean you’re run over tomorrow by an elderly driver who forgot to take his pills today.

 

Players of the game take the role of assassins, who must use the various tools at their disposal; from storytelling to a slew of items available from specialty Black Market shops to create a situation in which a target is killed in a way in line with their Death Prediction. The Machine of Death Game uses this basic idea of assassins working in a world where cause of death is known to create various game modes.

 

There are various game modes such as general Round Robin, Head-To-Head, Co-op, Cutthroat and The Day Off which allow for tons of replayability and fun! So get your catapult ready to fling some sharks at people or maybe create a quick sand generator in a treehouse to take out your rivals. With all these possibilities and game play, assassination has never been more fun!

 

2-4 players

Ages 15+

30 minute play time
