We’ve been ordering a lot lately, it’s a never ending deluge of awesome new games to get excited about. But I’m running out of clever things to say about it, so I’m going to have to go meta and talk about how I can’t think of what to talk about. Yup, onto the list of new games!

imag1000 Scotland Yard: It’s been so long since I’ve played this game, man it’s sure bringing back a lot of awesome memories. Hunt down and catch the elusive Mr. X before it’s too late and he escapes forever.
index Space Cadets: You and your crewmates are fresh out of Space Academy and excited for your first mission. Work together in this fast paced real time game to save the day.
TheRivalsForCatan_1_1024x1024 Rivals for Catan: A two player card game variant of Catan. I was very impressed by this game, it manages to capture much of the feel of regular Catan while adding some new intriguing mechanics. And 2 players! I keep a copy in my backpack at all times cause you never know.
ThreeCheersForMaster Three Cheers for Master: Your Evil Master is down in the dumps, he’s already conquered all the lands and is bored, and when the Master is bored, the minions suffer. Thankfully, you’ve got a brilliant idea, surely a cheerleading competition can’t fail to cheer the Master up! Build the best cheer tower of minions to impress the Master and win in this… oddly adorable game.
pic1961827 Castles of Mad King Ludwig: A neat game by the guy who did Suburbia. A tile placement game in which you attempt to meet the whims of the mad King Ludwig in building an elaborate and extravagant castle.

Whew! Just as I finish up with one big order today, another big one comes in. But hey, that means lots of new exciting games to post about. This list is a long one! I wonder if we’ll ever slow down on bringing in new stuff? I hope not, this job would be a lot less exciting! Without further ado, the list:

dominion adventures Dominion Adventures: I looove Dominion and this is the first expansion that’s come out since I started playing the game and I’m lucky cause it’s amazing. I’ve only played a few games but I can tell this is going to easily be my favorite expansion. This expansion changes the game in a big way, adding a lot more depth and some fascinating new mechanics.
 adventure time card wars Adventure Time Card Wars: Man, everybody loved the collectors decks we brought in, all were sold out within two weeks (Except the PB and LSP pack, no love for my favorite lumpy princess?) So we got those back in stock as well as the hero packs and boosters.
 pokemon roaring skies Pokemon Roaring Skies boosters and theme decks: Will you pick the Articuno deck or the Zapdos deck? We also got a limited amount of promo versions of Regirock and Pangoro that will be given away with the purchase of either a theme deck, or 3 booster packs.
 dugeon fighter Dungeon Fighter: A cooperative dungeon crawl game with a hint of dexterity based gameplay.
 lords of vegas Lords of Vegas: I hear this one mentioned on the Dice Tower top 10’s fairly often, they seem to quite like it. An area control game set on the Las Vegas strip, invest in the most profitable companies and control the richest casinos.
 shadows over camelot Shadows Over Camelot: Another one that is quite frequently mentioned by the Dice Tower guys. Work together and stop the forces of evil from consuming Camelot, but beware, one amongst your number may be a traitor. The touch of Monty Python humor is just spice on an already excellent game.
 telestrations Telestrations: Those Dice Tower guys do have good taste, so here’s a third game they often mention. Telestrations is an amazing party game that takes the classic telephone game and implements it with pictures in place of words. I play this game every New Years.
 medina Medina: An abstract tile placement game, compete to be the most influential developer of Medina, a desert city near the Atlas Mountains in 1822.
 ESW_Box_MOCK Epic Spell Wars, Rumble at Castle Tentakill: A follow up to the Duel at Mt. Skullzfyre you can play this game either on it’s own or combine it with the original for even more craaaaziness.
