More Game Arrivals: May 15th - 19th

The Games Keep Coming In.  This shipment has something for everyone:

The Adventurers: The Pyramid of Horus
From: Fantasy Flight Games
Deep in the Egyptian desert, an ancient pyramid has just been discovered.  Hieroglyphics near the entrance indicate it was built to honor the falcon-headed god Horus, but they also speak of a cult worshiping the evil god Seth. Eight brave adventurers are preparing to explore the pyramid's secrets...and its dangers!
In The Adventurers: The Pyramid of Horus, each player takes control of one of eight adventurers represented in the game by a figure and a card.  These skilled Adventurers are ready to take any risk to overcome the dangers waiting inside the Pyramid of Horus and grab as many archaeological relics as they can carry.  The player whose Adventurer escapes alive with the most treasure is the winner.

Save Doctor Lucky
From: Paizo
Save Doctor Lucky is a family board game of high-seas heroism. It is also a stand alone prequel to Kill Doctor Lucky.
Doctor Lucky is a charismatic and well-respected philanthropist with a heart of gold. Of course, you secretly hate the old bastard, and you’re probably going to try to kill him someday. But killing him aboard a sinking ship would be pointless. So you’ve decided to save his life instead, and do it while someone else is looking. That way, even if you go down with the ship, you’ll at least go down in history.And isn’t that what life is all about?
In Save Doctor Lucky, players are passengers on a sinking ship. You have one goal: to save Doctor Lucky’s life while someone else is watching. Players rush from deck to deck trying to find items that will aid them, and trying not to see anyone else who might play the hero. But as the ship sinks, the board grows smaller, bringing Doctor Lucky and the passengers together into the few remaining decks.

Tomb: Cryptmaster
From: AEG
Tomb pits opponents against one another in a fast paced board game of monsters, traps, and treasures. After assembling your party from a plethora of random characters in the Inn, you set out into the Tomb. The Tomb is created as the game begins, with each player hiding treasure, traps, and monsters in each crypt, unknown to the other players. Do you remember where you left the chest of gold? Better hope your opponent didn’t put a Pain Eater in the same crypt! No rogues at the Inn today? Hope you don’t run into a poison dart trap! Tomb captures the fast-paced feel of a dungeon crawl without the hours of set up before hand. Just grab your party and go. 
Each character brings unique abilities, and with the map changing every game as well as the available characters, no two games will ever be the same.
The Ladybug
From: Zobmondo
The Ladybug Game is designed for interactive play between parents and kids. To enhance the game experience a lively introductory story about the adventures of four ladybugs – Ella Yellow, Rickie Red, Tommy Teal and Olivia Orange can be read to the players before starting the game.

In The Ladybug Game players help the ladybugs find their way back home (a rosebush) after a windstorm launches them airborne and they land on a faraway dirt pile. The first ladybug to find her way “home” is the winner. Along the way, the ladybugs encounter various hazards such as tall grass, praying mantis’, aphids and ants.

Shake 'n Take
From: Out of the Box Publishing
Shake 'n Take a fun family game is a fast and frantic search for Aliens. Each player (Alien Hunter) has their own alien game board.  The Alien Hunters each roll their Shape Die and then quickly capture aliens that have the shape which was rolled. As soon as an Alien Hunter has rolled their Shape Die another player begins shaking the Shaker Egg.  The object of the game is to capture as many aliens as you can before the Alien face appears on the top surface of the die within the Shaker Egg.  The first Alien Hunter to capture all of their aliens is the winner.
