Five Tribes
RRP £44.99
Ages 13+, Players 2-428904FIVE-TRIBES-box-3D_MD

The old sultan just died and control of the fabled Sultanate of Naqala is up for grabs! The oracles foretold of strangers who would maneuver the Five Tribes to gain influence over the legendary city-state. Invoke the old Djinns; move the Tribes into position at the right time and the Sultanate may become yours!

Designed by Bruno Cathala, Five Tribes is a bit more of a “Gamers’ Game” than Days of Wonder’s standard fare. It builds on a long tradition of German games with wooden Meeples in a unique twist on the Worker Placement game genre. While the rules are quite easy to learn and understand, implementing a winning strategy will take a calculated approach.

In this worker displacement game, you score by carefully maneuvering the Five Tribes of Meeples over the tiles that make up the ancient city-state of the Sultanate of Naqala. You need to look ahead to determine what moves will not only position you to score well, but put your opponents at a disadvantage. It’s when, how and where you dis- place the Five Tribes that will determine your victory or failure!

Welcome to Gomorra.  A bustling settlement in the Weird West. Rebuilding after a cataclysmic event, the citizens of the town struggle to remake their lives. But of course, powers always come into play. Various factions fight for control of the town, sometimes behind the scenes, sometimes right out in the streets.

Soon it will be time for you to choose your allegiance. Doomtown: Reloaded puts you in charge of one of the four main outfits vying for control of Gomorra: The Law Dogs, the Sloane Gang, the Morgan Cattle Company, and the Fourth Ring.

Doomtown is an expandable card game set in the Deadlands™ universe. Based on the classic collectible game, Doomtown: Reloaded is a fast-paced game of gun slingin’, spell slingin’ and mud-slingin’! Use poker hands and card pulls for everything from gunfights to summoning abominations.

Who will control the town? Slap leather in the town square and join in the story.

pic1926621_mdAs soon as you saw the ad in today’s Tribune, the certainty flooded over you. At last, this is your chance, the reason for all your training! All that work waterproofing your utility belt and practicing your one-liners will finally pay off. You call into work sick, feed the cat, and turn on your police scanner, waiting nervously for the first call–or at least, the call that’s close enough for you to get there first. You’ll stop at nothing to join your heroes, The Champions of Zeta City, and woe to any wannabe crime fighters who stand in your way!

Heroes Wanted is a tactical board game for 1-5 superhero hopefuls, attempting to fulfill their dreams of becoming a member of Zeta City’s exclusive crime fighting super team: The Champions of Zeta City. Each time you play, you will create a unique superhero comprised of two hero cards. You will then choose a scenario and face a different villain (or villains), but the objective remains the same: gain as much fame as possible by KO’ing minions, completing headlines, and thwarting the villain. At the end of each game, the superhero with the most fame is the winner and joins the prestigious ranks of The Champions of Zeta City.

Khrysos Hunters

Ages 12+, Players 2-4download

Mysterious treasures have been found in the Khrysos galaxy! Collectors, adventurers and treasure hunters from distant worlds are all racing to make their fortune. Assemble your team and use their unique skills to battle, confound, and steal from your opponents. Be the first team to collect the treasures to win. Enjoy millions of map combinations and a huge variety of characters to experience within this base game which is expandable up to six players.

The hybrid card/board game Khrysos Hunters is a fast, fun, action packed romp that has players move their treasure hunters around a changeable map to be the first to collect twelve treasures. Each turn is initiated by a die roll, but each of the colorful characters in play uses a different strategy by leveraging one of their six abilities.

May the best team win!
