Game Arrivals: July 2nd


In with this week's arrivals is a new Dominion game expansion and Dragon Egg Dice Containers.





Calling all Dominion fans, another to add to your collection!  Dominion Menagerie is the latest expansion for the base game Dominion, a deck-building game.  The Menagerie expansion includes 400 cards, with 30 new Kingdom cards. There are Horses that save a draw for later, Exile mats that cards can be sent to and rescued from, and Ways that give Actions another option. Events return.

Dominion, that’s what you’re trying to achieve. This time with animals! They each have a lesson to teach, whether it’s how to spit really far, or what kind of grass tastes the best. It’s a lot to keep track of, but you’re like an elephant: you remember everything. And you’re afraid of mice. You’ve taken up riding. Horses are intimidating; they say you can lead a horse to water, but you haven’t managed it. So you’re working your way up, starting with dogs. So far so good; the dog hasn’t bucked you off yet. Your menagerie got off to a poor start, with just a goat, two rats, and the adviser who suggested starting a menagerie. You couldn’t get that fox you wanted, but it was probably bad anyway. Now you’ve got some camels, which are just as useless for sewing as you’d been warned, and a turtle that can hold its breath for longer than anyone can stay interested. Soon the animal kingdom will be yours.

In this week is a restock of our dice containers: Dragon Eggs, D20, and a Brawler that holds cards and dice.  Locally made, these colorful containers consist of a nontoxic biodegradable plant plastic and are water resistant.  The tops are magnetized so that the Dragon Egg doubles as a dice rolling cup and as a storage container.

Go quackers with Munchkin: Disney DuckTales!
In Munchkin: Disney DuckTales, players can choose to play Scrooge McDuck, Huey, Dewey, Louie, and other DuckTales icons to battle it out against monsters (and each other) while uncovering treasure that will have them swimming in gold – just like "Unca Scrooge"! True to the original Munchkin game, your goal is to collect as much Treasure as possible while enlisting the help of interesting Items and Allies you’ll come across during your adventures. If you’re the first to reach Level 10, you win! However, watch out for conniving villains such as Bigtime Beagle or Curses that could distract you from becoming filthy rich.
