From Atlas Games and just in time for Halloween is Unquiet Dead, the 4th expansion to the popular card game, Gloom. This expansion adds new modifiers, events, and untimely deaths and introduces Stories, Undead, and Timing Symbols.
With Stories, whoever claims a Story gains a special benefit. But just try and see how long you can keep it. The Undead are special modifiers that let players become a supernatural creature perhaps a mummy, or a ghost, or a vampire, or a haunted portrait, etc.  These will also count as both living and dead.  Timing Symbols will tell players if a card has an Instant, Ongoing, or Persistent effect at a glance. The spooks have definitely come out to play in this expansion!

We've brought in another game by Antoine Bauza designer of the award winning games 7 Wonders and Hanabi, and other board games including Ghost Stories and Takenoko.
Tokaido
Passport Game Studios

Tokaido is a 45-60 minute game for 2-5 players.  You are travelers on Japan's important route that connects Kyoto to Edo (now Tokyo), the East Sea Road.  This route offers a variety of stations in which travelers may acquire souvenirs, meet interesting people, visit shrines, taste local cuisine, take a dip in a hot springs, and collect art panels to complete a beautiful landscape picture.  All of these opportunities provide various ways to score points or gain abilities.  Beginning at either Kyoto or Edo players will all travel in the same direction.  Turn order is determined by the player occupying the last spot on the road. Therefore, players must balance how quickly they want to travel down the road.  Do you move fast and far so you can be first at a desired station's opportunity? Or do you take your time stopping at more stations?  Each station has a limit on the number of travelers who can stop there so you don't want to be too far behind as you may miss a valuable opportunity.

Game Profile: Relic Runners

The hunt is on!


Mechanics Point to Point Movement, Network Building
Theme Exploration
Publication Days of Wonder, 2013
Ages 10+
Time 60
Players 2-5
Description

Relic Runners is a new game from Days of Wonder.  The colorful board will be stacked with ruins and temples.  Each player’s explorer starts at base camp.  On their turn the explorers will move along a trail.  They can land on and explore a ruin for one ration pack, which allows the player to place one of their pathways on a trail segment adjacent to the ruin.  Personal paths will allow faster movement during later rounds.  Explorers can also move to and explore one of three different types of temples.  Tiles in the Purple temples are face up and have a one-time immediate use.  Tiles in the Blue temples are face down on the board and award victory points at the end of the game.  Tiles in the Ivory temples award special abilities that can be used for the remainder of the game.  Each ruin and each temple begins with 3 tiles.  When all 3 tiles from a ruin have been explored a relic is placed in the temple.  In order to claim one of these valuable relics an explorer must start their turn on a space occupied by a relic and finish on a space that contains a similar type relic.

Throughout the game players can use toolboxes collected along river trails to perform special actions including placing new paths, moving existing paths, acquiring rations, and scoring additional victory points.  Explorers will need to visit base camp periodically to replenish their ration supply.

Placing paths early in the game will lead to opportunities to claim relics later in the game.  Points are awarded for relics, blue tiles, some purple tiles and some abilities on the ivory tiles.  The player with the most victory points wins.  Relic Runners comes with great components, interesting decisions and a lot of replayability.

We have an open copy of Relic Runners available in our Store Demo Library for you to come in and try.
