Game Arrivals: June 14th

Another shipment of board games arrived today.

Gearworld -
The Borderlands

Fantasy Flight
New from Fantasy Flight is Gearworld: The Borderlands.

The Sky People retreated above the clouds and left the Borderlands to crumble and decay.  The old machines are rusted and broken, and the scavengers of Gearworld live on scraps from the past and refuse from the Sky People's flying cities. The scavengers' only hope for a better life is to build great towering skyworks and gain the favor of the World Above, allowing them to outlast and outlive their rival scavenger gangs.  In the Borderlands, survival is an exception.

This is a game of conquest and survival in a post-apocalyptic world.  Players must negotiate trades and alliances, conquer their rival's territory, and gather resources in a race to build the skyworks to win the favor of those who live in the World Above.
