AUSTIN, Texas (November 4, 2016) – A new Munchkin-inspired game will let families with young kids explore Wonderland in a game that plays like a friendlier, simpler version of classic Munchkin.

In Munchkin Wonderland, players wander a whimsical landscape fighting enemies such as the the Queen of Hearts, the Cheshire Cat, or the Jabberwock. They’ll get help from classic characters such as the Dormouse, March Hare, and Alice herself using weapons like the Vorpal Blade and Six Impossible Things Before Breakfast.

kitsuneNinja All-Stars: Clan Kitsune

$36.95

 

As the spine of the mountains gives way to the eastern lands, dark and mysterious forests cover the great northwest. Wet, damp, and mossy, the lush ferns and spongy ground are seldom travelled except in times of the greatest need. There are many superstitions about the secretive denizens of this verdant expanse. Mythical creatures are said to walk freely here, the kami, fickle and quick to anger, range far and wide, sometimes luring unwary travelers into the forests depths, to what ends, no one knows. Under the shadowy and damp canopy many magical and natural herbs are grown and traded by the few people who live in small villages along the safe paths through the woodland realm. These ingredients make the most powerful of healing agents and the most deadly of poisons. These are the lands of the Kitsune clan.

 

For many on Kagejima, the difference between the Kitsune and the kami inhabitants of the dark forest is nonexistent. For their part, the Kitsune are a relatively open and happy people glad to share friendship with any worthy of their esteem. However, they do possess a mercurial and fickle nature much like their namesake. Normally this is expressed through silly jokes and tricks, but their playful behavior can can quickly turn dark depending on the mood of the Kitsune. Many of the more stoic clans view the Kitsune as unreliable rogues, while their friends see them as wise tricksters.

A demo of the Realm Works product from Lone Wolf.  They demonstrate the features using an example from the Emerald Spire for Pathfinder, a future release.  What I like about this is the fact that you can do a fog of war type of game for your party.  More importantly is the fact that you double check your work before revealing it to the party.

This will be ideal for some many gae groups it’s not funny. Where I think it will see a lot of use is in remote games.

In Royals, players take on the roles of the great noble houses of the 17th century, fighting for supremacy in Europe at that time. With the help of the right country cards, they occupy influential positions and obtain bonuses for this in the form of victory points. The higher the rank of the title associated with the position, the more country cards required. Already-occupied positions can be contested by playing intrigue cards.

Matt takes his first look at Odin’s Ravens.  On the video I said the game had a bgg rank of 150.  The information given to me was incorrect, it’s currently ranked 850.  Anyway it’s a game about racing around the world using a card driven mechanic.

I have played it half a dozen times now and I can’t believe how close the games have been.
