New out from Asmodee is Spyriuma worker placement game by designer William Attia who gave us Caylus
What will be your strategy...produce or buy?
Based in an imaginary world where England has been transformed into a Steampunk atmosphere. Your goal? Build factories, using workers who produce a substance known as Spyrium. Producing Spyrium in one factory, then processing it in the next results in victory points.  An alternative to producing Spyrium is buying it, however, players will need to work very hard to purchase the rare and expensive commodity. 
Only those who succeed from the beginning of the game to increase their income or workers will manage to offer the most lucrative factories will win!

Parade is another in a series of classic card games being reprinted by Z-Man Games.

Parade is a card game for 2 - 6 players that have been transported to Alice's Wonderland. The Mad Hatter, the Cheshire Cat, the White Rabbit and other characters of Alice in Wonderland are having a parade. You, the players are in charge of organizing the parade.

Character cards are played from a players' hand to the end of the parade.  The object of the games is to choose cards that will not cause others in the parade line to walk. The cards have point values so any that walk from the parade on your turn will be placed in pile in front of you.  Nobody in Wonderland wants points as the player with the least number of points at the end of the game wins.
